Added Linux wl (wireless lan) command, potentially useful for jailbroken devices.
I've been trying to get my Voyage to show the cover on the main screen since 5.13.5. Just upgraded to .6 and still no cover. I wonder what is Amazon up to with this being release of cover art.

The threads here I have been following give the impression it was a slow rollout, first in other countries, and then slowly across the US. There was no mention in the update notes on Amazon that this was a new feature, so why are they hiding it for some users? Odd.
