Of course the book info should be propagated to the server, but bugs happen.
Oh, the book deletion thing is certainly a bug.

Looks like the update deactivates your font ramp, if you have one. But if you delete it and reinstall it and restart the Kindle, it's activated again.

Do you actually want Amazon to remove side loaded eBooks from your Kindle when you turn on WiFi?

But others do. So would you want others to lose eBooks because Amazon deletes side loaded eBooks?

That has been the consensus for some time. The question is, what is the nature of the bug?

  • Per-page Scribe notebook templates and an advanced notebook template selector.
  • Enhanced Manga navigation: "For faster navigation, press-and-hold page turning in Manga has been replaced by Page Flip. To use Page Flip, tap the icons in the bottom navigation toolbar."
  • Pinyin deprecation, affects reader and Aa menu.
  • Changes related to book synchronization. (Why they haven't been able to get it right after all this time is a mystery.)
  • Changes related to the handling of page numbers.
  • Possible selective export of notebook pages.
  • Updates to chromium web browser.
  • Changes to asset management related to types of content on the device and its organization.
  • A process named Minerva for recording and reporting metrics to Amazon.
  • An app watchdog for the main interface application, possibly to help detect failures.
Do you see all these from looking at code or is there a somewhere that lists changes. Because like everyone else I only see it saying the usual bug updates. Is there one that lists android updates too

I compare the code to the previous release looking for changes.

I thought I was missing something. Thanks for posting these. It is very annoying how vague they are. One of the updates actually had something helpful to me. Not that they all aren't. But it enabled voiceview to continue where it left off when stopped. Not restart the who page.

All this is doing is sanitizing a filename for display.

It looks like there was some exploit where the filename contained actual HTML (e.g. "<p>stuff</p>.ext") and this was just appended to the HTML output. Now, it gets converted to text and stuffed into a div (e.g. "<div>&lt;p&gt;stuff&lt;/p&gt;.ext"</div>).

I was having an issue downloading a 'PDF'. Scribe was still on 5.16.6.1, I was just curious if would ever update automatically. Thought I would try updating to 5.16.7 and the download worked as expected.
