Have no idea what's different. Just figured I'd get this thread started because I'm curious.

Oh, noooooo. Kobo really wants to make our (me, jackie_w, NiLuJe) life busy ... Every time we finish updating the patches and announce it, Kobo releases another version (this is now the third time).

Fun fact: There are now 5 active versions between the 6 main affiliates (see below).

Sorry. Does your site automatically search for and update its database when a new release comes out?

It automatically finds it, shows it on the main page, updates the image in my signature, and downloads a copy to my server within 15 minutes of a release to any of 8 affiliates checked.

Basically,

Automatic: signature image, main table, affiliate-version table, my private archive of firmware versions, other affiliates popup.

Manual: past versions popup, version availability table (the one with a lot of green and red squares, and a column for each version), past versions by hardware table (the one at the bottom).

Grabbed this on an unpatched H2O original I have laying around.

The update notes were identical to the ones from 4.17 and so far I see no surface changes to anything.

Perhaps David will have details he can share.

The affiliate is set to beta. I don’t plan to update my Forma until patches are released unless there’s something major I missed in this cursory look.

Impressive. And thank you for this.

I've decided to go ahead and upgrade the 2.0. I'm curious if it will work with Calibre (may not because the firmware will be too new). ...

Alright, 4.18 installed without a glitch. ... And Calibre still doesn't like it, but that's understandable since it's a brand new release.

Kobo seems to be releasing updates rapidly. Does it matter if I miss some of the updates with my KA1 and then go to the current version?

For the KA1 this has never mattered.

A few changes. Forma owners gaining Dropbox access is likely the biggest one.

It doesn't matter for all Kobo that I know of. My H20 was on 4.7.x and I upgraded to the second 4.17.x.

I don't know what changes there are, but the patches for 4.17.x (overall) do not work.

Is there an affiliate for Walmart in the USA? If so, can you please add that to your list of affiliates? Thanks.

Yes, I'm starting on the updates in a moment.

Is there any use for this (remember, each affiliate causes an additional 10 requests, and ~0.3s delay)? I haven't seen any versions not caught quickly with the current affiliates yet.

P.S. That Dropbox stuff looks interesting, and gives me quite a bit to play with (I might be able to do something interesting with it).
