A breakdown of search results by chapter sounds like a pretty useful enhancement. Thanks!

The left justification for text is a feature many have been requesting for a long time. Not sure why they called it "ragged right text option" though. I don't think I've ever heard it called that.

I even got a Kindle update on my Mac this morning. That is rare. They hardly ever update the computer version of the app. To be honest, I even forgot it was installed until I got the update notice this morning.

Attached a couple of screen captures.

The same ragged right feature was also added to the most recent firmware for e-ink Kindles and the Android/Fire Kindle app. It is only effective for books in KFX format (enhanced typesetting.) It is odd what Amazon thinks are important features.

The most recent Kindle for Mac version listed on Amazon's website is 1.20, which has been out for several months. Did you get something newer than that?

It says it is version 1.20.2, so no clue if this is later than the one listed. It is described as containing stability improvements and bug fixes. (Pretty much what they all say.) Amazon has always been slow to push out updates for certain devices. I rarely get them for the Mac or Windows PC.

Amazon thinks any feature that might somehow make you buy more books is important, as in important to them! What we want is of much lesser importance to them.

ETA: I think v 1.20.2 is a minor update to the one listed on Amazon's update page. I don't remember when/if I got 1.20.0 or 1.20.1.

I just went into System Information on my MBP and I see that the Kindle 1.12.4 update was installed on 7 October 2015 but no other updates were installed until today when it updated to 1.20.2. I'm not sure if that is Amazon being wonky on pushing out updates or Apple being wonky about notifying me they are available, perhaps both. No big deal on the Mac version of the Kindle app since I rarely use it. I cannot even remember the last time I did use it.

According to the time stamp, we started discussing the Mac version 2.5 hours before they posted that thread. Besides, we are not really discussing it here, more like casually mentioning that it came out. I still think it was rather odd that I was never pushed 1.20.0 or 1.20.1, only 1.20.2. Perhaps if I had actually opened the app once in a blue moon it would have told me an update was available.

The Mac App Store was incredibly out of date for the Kindle app. It was not updated to be in sync with the Amazon releases. Therefore I have been updating by downloading the software directly from the Amazon website rather than the App Store.

Back when I used the Kindle for Windows version I did the manual install because I had the same issue. I would periodically check for updates. But since I no longer mess with deDRMing, I rarely even open the Kindle app on my MBP. It is so much easier just to open the books in my Kindle for iPad app. I'm not sure if the issue with updates not being pushed out in a timely fashion is the fault of Amazon or the Apple App Store or perhaps both. It does make me wonder what else I have on my MBP that might have updates available that I am unaware of. I suspect the issue is with Amazon though. When I had a Fire HD 6, I would usually get updates fairly quickly, but some people were having to wait 6 months or more before their updates got pushed to them. So Amazon definitely has a history of slow updates for some people.
