Waiting for 2.7...

End of September should be the "anticipated" release date for release 2.7, if I count correctly.. mhhh... that should be today ? Except, iRex decides to work on Saturday and plans to release this 2.7-bomb tomorrow...

Let's see, if they stick to the timeline, and will release something today, I'm very eager to see the new features

Yepp, Irex has got it's very special understanding of timeline. Hey, it is small spin off of Phillips.
This week release - forget it.

I haven't been following the discussion that closely, 5-10% improvement over how long? What's the current charge-life? Last I heard was ~8 hours, is that still about right?

Hmmm. So 5% on 10 hours. That's another 30 minutes! I'm so excited!!!

5% - 10% on 8 hours. 10 is what they claim. I've yet to see that here, nor has anyone else in the reports I have seen on this or the iRex forum. So this is a maximum of 48 minutes. And at worst 24.

What about the entire functions that the system doesn't even touch yet?!?!?

MP3 support? OEB support?

How about a txt viewer that is actually usable (linewrapping)

The iLiad has a hell of a long way to go before it does what it was claimed to. If 2.8 implements the final functions on the pdf viewer then fine. We will finally have _1_ fully operational and working viewer.
