Yesterday I downloaded koreader-nightly-20170821, and if anyone is interested I might have found a small and insignificant bug.

I wanted to start my E-reader with History page in "Mosaic with cover images"-mode, so I changed the settings accordingly.
But it didn't work, every time KOReader changed the settings and started with last opened file instead.
Then I tried with the other History display alternatives, with better results. Now the History page started as it should. Then I went back to Mosaic mode again and it also worked.
So you might have to use the other display alternatives first to get "Start with: History" to stick.

That's all.

Hello! I used the last version of Koreader for about 10 days and now I finally have returned to the old version (downloaded about 2 years ago. version - v2014.11-277-g51e8dee).
Reasons why I returned to the old one:
1. It works much faster. I mean using my Kobo Glo, the difference in working speed between two versions was significant for me.
2. I use only two dictionaries. On the last version, it works very slowly when I want to translate any word, and often it crashes during "searching" of words. I do not know why, but using an older version I did/do not have any problems with dictionaries and it worked/works much faster.
If anybody has interest in solving this issue, I can send "crash.log".
Thank you.

Frenzie & Dushistov are working on the Stardict API (sdcv) and will probably have another updated version for KOReader in the near future.

2014.11-277 was quite some time ago, if we could find out the versions that contained Frenzie's earlier bumps to sdcv, you could try the version just before them and find the newest version that works for you. ( It would also ID where the slow down started.)

Luck;
Ken

On the sdcv side nothing has really changed (see here). I will update sdcv one of these days, but cmake is proving more frustrating than I anticipated. Anyway, logically that means that if anything is slowing things down, it would be one or a combination of these.

For example, a very simple thing to try would be to comment out or delete this line. It has recently become somewhat contentious.

Thank you for your reply. I commented the line you mentioned, but no result. Translation window still pops up in ~5sec, and Koreader often crashes. I cannot try other combinations, since I do not have enough knowledge in programming.
Anyway, I just compared two versions one more time. I can definitely say that overall performance of older version is noticeably better than new one's. I mean not only dictionary search, but page turn over is also faster. In short, Kobo works much faster on older Koreader.
I am attaching “crash.log” file (renamed to ".txt"), maybe it helps to find out problem.
Thanks.

Did you try updating it to the latest nightly? I think one of those looks like it might've been fixed in https://github.com/koreader/koreader/pull/3155 You can keep two versions of KOReader in KSM.

I couldn't say about speed. It doesn't really seem any different to me. But then dictionaries don't take 5 seconds to show up.

About speed, when it is mention, overall speed is more or less same (I was on very old b695 or something like that, now I'm on one of the latest, maybe a week old), page turns, etc.

But, there's one thing that is slower (but not that it is a too big of a problem, at least not for me), highlighting. After we leave dictionary highlight is removed visible slower than before.

Just to mention...

That's basically the same thing as the line I mentioned above. If you have an immediate dictionary result, then displaying a little "searching for" infobox might actually slow it down slightly (particularly on an older, slower E Ink display), or at least feel slower to some people even if it isn't necessarily so. But you don't have to wait for the highlight to disappear before tapping. The point is actually to reduce visual disorientating by leaving some markers around the interface.

A bit like how this highlights the element you were linked to:

Thank you very much!!! I have just downloaded the latest version and it works great. Overall speed and dictionary as well are fast enough. Thank you again, I very appreciate the work you people have been doing.

You're welcome, but other than one or two crash fixes that may have affected you there really shouldn't be any difference in speed.
