I will update this post with things I discover.

Some facts about the Libra (in progress):
- Codename is storm
- ID is 384

Firmware changes (in progress):
- About view now shows advertised storage capacity.
- The new reader.
- Header/footer is now chapter(top)/book progress(bottom). There is an off setting for each. They are also smaller and less intrusive.
- There is a progress bar at the bottom of the screen, which can be turned off.
- The new reader status bar and toolbar at the top are quite a bit more compact. It also shows the current time on the top-right beside the battery level instead of cycling between percent read and so on.
- FeatureSettings::deeperReading - enables/disables the new interface, but note that disabling it can cause crashes and reboots (especially when changing reading settings)
- ReadingSettings::showNewTitle (TODO: test this)
- ReadingSettings::newBookProgressType (TODO: test this)
- Touch accuracy improvements.
- Fix for series name being cut off vertically.
- Pinch to zoom is either less sensitive or gone for PDFs (you can still double tap or use the controls).
- Many alignment issues in the UI have been fixed.
- Various large print mode fixes.
- Various annotation improvements.
- TODO

Other notes (in progress):
- This release will probably be replaced within the next week.
- The new reader is a bit laggy on older devices (especially the menu and opening a book; surprisingly, the page preview is still pretty quick).
- The font and stats panels are identical, they are just triggered differently (and stats is now labeled as Reading Progress).
- The selection movement bug/feature is not fixed.
- When patching the CSS (and the code), note that the new and old views are both there, and each needs to be patched. Due to this, I will only update that patches for the new interface, unless the old one is officially supported for the element in question (see FeatureSettings::deeperReading above for what I mean by this). This also means that I will deprecate patches which only apply to the old interface, such as the clock display duration one, unless it isn't too much work to update or it is in heavy demand.

Due to the amount of changes in this version, I won't be starting on the majority of the patches until this weekend.

Great to see it rolling out. A quick diff would seem to indicate very little has changed low level between 4.16 and 4.15 except for nickle and the firmware/drivers for the Libra.

If you don't have a Libra H2O, move along. There's nothing to see here. The generic links do not work.

Um, that's a bit of an understatement. The new reader view is in this version, along with a whole lot of new features. I just haven't documented them yet. This is also the firmware the newer reviewers were using.

They don't work, but I think (95% certain) this version should work fine on older devices, although I'm going to make sure of this tonight (no guarantees till then). Even so, I will probably want a Libra for the buttons, shape, natural light, and better screen.

Well, yes... I meant that Qt/other core dependency versions didn't change.

Yes...I was really hoping for a QtWebKit update, but at least some work NiLuJe and I have been doing (we'll probably release it after I finish the patches) with Qt doesn't have to be redone (hint: plugins).

For the common user, that's a piece of information not very useful for decision and it can be understood in other way

I have to wait to Friday, I'm afraid, to test it in my Clara, as I don't want to lose the patches and I don't have them at this computer

Most will, many are not needed anymore, and others will have to be completely rewritten. I posted a bit about this in the Libra thread.

Does one always have to reinstall patches after a firmware update?

I don't really know, I'm going to try with my patch file, checking which work and which not. If some of them doesn't work, I'll wait for this at the new patches from geek101.
