Firmware update 5.10.1.1

Here’s what’s new:

Swipe-able Home: Swipe up on your home screen to see additional tips, recommendations, and more based on your reading habits.

Easily personalize your reading: Now save multiple reading settings, selecting the font, boldness level, and orientation settings you prefer all from the main menu and quickly switch between those settings.

Return borrowed books: You can return Kindle Owners’ Lending Library books from within your library by long pressing on a borrowed book and selecting return.

Battery percentage: The percent of battery remaining is shown.

Labels for the standard toolbar: Labels are added under each icon on the standard toolbar for improved navigation.

Performance improvements and other general enhancements.

I wonder what it means by Performance improvements and other general enhancements --- things we won't notice, or something worthy?

I'm excited to see the new home screen and personalization.

I thought Returning Borrowed Books was added in the last firmware?

Thanks for telling us - I wasn’t expecting this so soon!

I’ve downloaded it am now installing it. Really hoping for some improved battery life with this one and looking forward to seeing the other changes.

Oh, that’s a shame. I’ve been using it and the main difference I can see (apart from the home screen) is that the font selection menu is now on the left - yikes! And the font sizes etc are all an extra step away so I hope that gets changed soon.

I’ve saved my settings for daytime reading (Charis size 3, no light), so that seems quite useful, and I’ll save my nighttime setting tonight (landscape, GIANT FONT, light 2).

I'm eager to see the new homepage. My font selection menu already opens on the left but only if I am in the customize section. You are using an Oasis? Maybe they rolled them out to them first.

I'm not at home and able to do that right now, so was hoping it would be able to manually update. Sadly not yet.

It appears they haven't dropped support for the 6th gen paperwhite yet, which is somewhat surprising to me in a way, but possibly not in other ways.

I'm not sure if they are updating to 1st Gen, but if they do, it wouldn't break it since it would be an official update.
