Question non-latin titles in v1.3

Hi,

After upgrade to v1.3 all my russian language epub ebooks with cyrillic titles show as some hieroglyphic characters in "My Library" list of ebooks. The book content still reads fine. I know it's just been released but does anyone know ways to fix this? This has to do with default encoding of tittles and probably affects other languages too.

In v1.2 everything worked perfectly fine without any need to do any configuration changes or hacks.

Thank you.

The problem is, they didn't officially release v1.3 just yet. The leaked download wasn't an official release, and there are still a few days left for an official update to be released.

I wish it was the case (due to lack of folder organization and ability to jump to page numbers) but I'm sure the MD5:71ff307902279e0673acfdc12adc4b2f file will be the official v1.3.0 released with fanfares tomorrow.

I checked, the leaked version is indeed the official one. It's a bit disappointing that some of the features aren't working anymore.

Not only non latin characters.

Accents o ñ in Spanish doesn't appear correct

True. Seems like all non-ascii characters are no longer visible in the ebook titles when looking at the My Documents list.

I just posted in the German forum a warning about that behaviour. As you wrote at B&N's forum: You can't understand why they touched that feature in the first place.
