The language file has been updated in this firmware. I'm trying to understand what that would mean, returned the chess?

Installed on Touch A/B (mark3) without problem.
Doesn't correct the issue of the 2 black squares at the right and left bottom of the screen when reading a book.

I don't have anything to add that isn't in the first post. I don't know of any other fixes that weren't mentioned.

As @Peenno has discovered, the display problems are still there on the Touch. I believe this is why it has not been officially released for these devices. In my testing, the problem isn't as bad as Peenno is seeing. I only see it occasionally and usually after using the different menu options while reading.

For calibre, I have updated the supported firmware version number in the KoboTouch driver. This will be in the next release of calibre. There were no other changes needed to support this firmware version. Until the calibre update is release, it is safe to use the "Attempt to support newer firmware versions" option in the driver configuration.

This firmware works fine for me on my Kobo Mini. I have not tested it on my Aura 2 yet.

Also, just wanted to clear up a common misconception on my firmware downloader: it does not depend on the user's IP address, as everything goes through a proxy in the U.S, and I also have a script running which checks it (and manually updates the firmware page) from a few proxies in Japan, Europe, and a few other locations.

And a useful note for the patches (I just finished porting the ones I use [I know, I'm kind of impatient]): Most from 9995 still work, but string replacements do not need the \0 between every character anymore, and the strings command is not the option -el anymore, it is -es for finding the strings in libnickel.

same here. And a fuzzy feeling of safety since this supposedly solves the recent wifi vulnerability

Aura One updated last night
No problems.
Didnt notice any particular performance improvement over 4.6, bit maybe it's more gradual since the big improvements in the past.
Forgot to check highlighting...
The wifi security fix was already in the last 4.6 release I think.
To be honest, this release seems primarily cosmetic, which isnt necessarily a bad thing!
But maybe I will notice more in the next days

The last 4.6.x release was only to one affiliate, so most Kobo users didn't see it. The WiFi security fix is important (or at least perceived as important). But, the timing is largely because of the Aura ONE LE. If it wasn't for that, I think they would have released 4.6.10075 more widely and waited for next year with more changes.
