Firmware 3.18.0 discussion

Firmware version 3.18.0 is out. I'll try to keep this opening post updated with the changes that we notice since the last version (3.17.3).

New features and bug fixes:

Release is for: Kobo Touch, Kobo Glo, Kobo Aura HD, Kobo Aura, Kobo Aura H2O, Kobo Glo HD, Kobo Touch 2.0

Changes include:
  • Sort Bookstore search results by price, rating, title, and date
  • See how many books are in each subcategory
  • After a sync that finds and applies an update, the regular sync is completed after update
  • Ghosting improvements
  • % read updates correctly on the sleep screen
  • Previously, saved Bookstore searches would not appear if Wifi was disconnected
  • Previously, 'Downloading' of book/article progress could get stuck in the header
Turning off wi-fi while sync is still running in the background silently cancels the sync. (previously a popup asked if you wished to cancel sync.)

Türkçe (Turkish) added to list of interface languages, New English-Turkish translation dictionary.

The display of the connect-to-computer popup is fixed.


New bugs:

The following two refresh bugs are triggered by: opening the dictionary, advanced font settings, table of contents, reading settings from within a book; making an annotation; or putting the device to sleep and waking again from within a book. Closing the book and re-opening it will stop the problems until the next time the bug is triggered.

* FullScreenReading refresh bug. (Only occurs on devices with the unofficial FullScreenReading=true feature setting and the "Show header and footer" option unticked). On the Aura the screen is no longer refreshed at all. On other devices it causes an extra-heavy full screen refresh to occur at every page turn regardless of the "Refresh the screen every" reading setting.

* Normal reading refresh bug (occurs on other devices too). On the Aura no screen refresh occurs at all when opening or closing the reading menus in a book. On other devices the screen is refreshed each time the reading menus are opened and again when closed (the normal behaviour before the bug is triggered is to only refresh when closing the menus.) There is also an extra refresh that shows a central black vertical bar, starting when a scheduled refresh coincodes with the beginning of a new chapter and occuring at every new chapter thereafter.


Other observations:

This firmware version has been successfully sideloaded to the Mini.

Support for firmware 3.18.0 has been added in Calibre version 2.39.
