Changes I know that are included in this release are:
  • Sync issues causing high battery drainage seem to be fixed.
  • OverDrive changes. I can't comment more on this as I don't have a device with OverDrive enabled.
  • Turning off the auto-sync now works.
  • Finished books are recorded.
  • Cleanup of some menus where options didn't work (e.g. Remove annotations option when book type didn't support annotations).
  • Added "View details" to in-book menu.
  • Fixed some problems with connecting to hidden SSIDs.
  • New book filter "Downloaded". Selecting this shows all books that are on the device whether they were purchased, from OverDrive or sideloaded.

I haven't kept notes during this beta cycle, so the above is from memory. I'll add anything I think of later.

As stated, this is for the Aura ONE and the Aura Edition 2. I have no knowledge of when an update will be released for the other devices. Hopefully it won't be to long.

For calibre uses, version 2.69 has support for this firmware versions. It also includes support for OverDrive books. These will be shown in the device list with the collection "OverDrive" and matched against books in the calibre library if they exist.
