Gotta keep this thread going! Amazon does not have any firmware on their download site for the PW Gen 7. At least today, 7/1/20. It's gone.

I'm sure it is a temporary thing. I expect to see a version 5.12.6 shortly for the PW Gen 7...

Kindle firmware update seems to come out at roughly three month intervals these days. Mid July would be about the time to starting looking for the next update.

That should clarify the status of the PW3.

Apparently a 5.13.1 is underway for Voyage and newer models according to some reddit users.

Edit:
here are release notes from the download page:

Version 5.13.1 – June 2020

Here’s what's new:

New features for kids in Amazon FreeTime: Kids are getting more out of Amazon FreeTime with new features that include: a new layout, improved search, book details, and Audible support. For customers in supported marketplaces who are Amazon FreeTime Unlimited subscribers, your kids will see rows of recommended eBook and Audible content that are age-appropriate and included in your subscription. Just access Amazon FreeTime from the menu to get started.

Search: Over the next few weeks, you will see a new search experience that makes it easier to navigate through your search results in the book without losing the page you were reading. To get started, simply search for a term in your book and tap on a search result.

Dark Mode: We have made it easier for you to turn on Dark Mode. You can easily turn it on/off in Quick Actions.

Updated Page Flip Navigation: Over the next few weeks, you will see an updated Page Flip experience that makes it easier to navigate to the right page in your book. The new experience shows recently read pages as dots on the progress bar, including your most recent page read from another device. To get started, tap the top of the screen while reading to display the Reading Navigation toolbar, then tap the left Page Flip icon (single page view) at the bottom of the screen.

Performance improvements, bug fixes, and other general enhancements.

Firmware 5.31.1 is out but not for the PW3. The PW3 is officially EOL. This proves it.

It's not that simple. The Voyage came out in 2014 and it is getting the latest firmware update.

So why isn't the PW3 getting updates especially after Amazon botched the PW3 by keeping 5.12.4 on the OTA server and updating who know how many PW3s with that mess of a firmware release?
