iBooks 1.1.1, iTunes 9.2.1

Quote:
As for iBooks 1.1.1, that one still seems to be propagating through the iTunes server factory, promising support for books with audio and video, improvements for PDF documents and other miscellaneous bug fixes.

Quote:
• Double-tap an image within a book to view it in greater detail.
• Experience books that include audio and video.
• Enjoy substantial performance improvements when reading PDFs.
• Look-up definitions to English words inside books without a specified language.
• Addresses an issue that may have caused some book downloads to not complete.
• Includes many stability and performance improvements.

i didn't lose anything in the end. it looked like i did. i guess ibooks was rebuilding its index or something. i had an empty bookshelf for about 5 minutes (too many books) and then it was filled.

i think it's the first time you use the app after you update it, which would make sense. bookshelf view has to update all the cover images. then it scrolls up and down pretty fast. i usually use list view myself. PDF rendering is much faster. still not up to good reader. but certainly faster.

I have verified - the dictionary look-up now works again for all books in my iBooks library.

And ... yeah - those empty shelves were rather disquieting!

So did anyone's bookshelf order change? I think mine survived both the iTunes and the iBook update.

So that is weird..you are right, poohbear_nc. I haven't gone thru and re-saved all my books in Calibre to get the Dictionary thing to work yet...and now it looks like I don't have to.
