Nook eInk getting a "major update" (v1.5) update next week

Not sure if this is old news, anyhow here is the quote in their press release.

Quote:
NOOK 3G and Wi-Fi Firmware Update Next Week
For book lovers who crave a paper-like reading experience, NOOK continues to be the most full-featured dedicated E-Ink® device on the market at a great value, starting at $149. Barnes & Noble continues to enhance the overall reading experience and performance of its award-winning, best-selling NOOK 3G and NOOK Wi-Fi devices and will offer a major update to customers next week. More information will be available at www.NOOK.com/support.

Looking at the "support page" this is what the Nook site says

This will be version 1.5 with the following enhancements:

Quote:
Our biggest update since NOOK was launched one year ago will deliver the most requested features and performance enhancements, including:
  • Faster page turns
  • Improved search on the device
  • Customized Barnes & Noble Library organization
  • Password protection
  • Syncing last page read across NOOK and all devices enabled by our free NOOK apps

The V1.5 update is expected to be available in late November via Wi-Fi or manual download from this page.

Unless the page turns are lighting, I think I'll keep my softroot...I'm still kind of underwhelmed by the list of so called "most requested"....I think organization was top priority for most people, not just Barnes and Noble organization.
