OPUS firmware update? any rumours?

Enjoying the latest FW but would love to see some update......However, I am well aware that Bookeen is not keen on them..... So does anyone have an ear near the Bookeen HQ?

Haven't seen/read anything, but then I haven't been paying a lot of attention to Bookeen lately either. Did they ever do an update so you could bookmark on the ePub firmware?


I really with they'd make both firmwares work with non-DRM files of their opposing formats (meaning the ePub fw would do non-DRM Mobi and vice versa).

EDIT: I just realized a lot of folks who haven't been around long won't get that, but those of you who were around a few years back should.

It works for the orizon. Will probably comes with the next opus update, whenever that is.
When bookeen says "we're going to do an update", you can trust them do to so. The only question is when.

back on the end of march, bookeen support mentioned that an update for opus was ready for use but needed to be tested, which would take 'several months'.

6 months, i guess, qualifies for inclusion in the mathematical set 'several'. however, i do not think that duration is any longer in the set 'reasonable', or even the microsoft standard 'real soon now' set. maybe santa will deliver it in my stocking on xmas? (note i am not mentioning WHICH christmas. HoHoHo)

p.s. - the arabic term that comes to mind is 'bukra, inshallah' (tomorrow, God willing), which is normally used to mean 'maybe tomorrow, only if God makes me do it'

this can be combined with the italian "Sú dimentichiamo domani, Perché forse non verrá" (Let's forget about tomorrow, For tomorrow never comes!) - Perry Como <-linky (at least we can be entertained while waiting)

Well, they did that for one update.
Bookeen and delays... You can never know with them.

I've given up hope on updates; asking them about it triggers very elusive answers. Still love my Opus, but i doubt it will ever see an update. They're all about the Orizon… until something else comes along. Bad customer service, if you ask me.

Ah, I was actually considering a Synology NAS. Good to know they are Bookeen-ish in firmware updates, I'll stay away.

The NAS had updates for 3 years.
They even made an update after saying there would be no more, to fix some unexpected breakage with OSx lion.

As far as bookeen goes, yeah, they could be better, but they still does a better job at it than most companies i've dealt with.
