211 Release Notes broken?

Is anyone else having trouble reading the Release Notes for 2.1.1 from http://www.pocketbook-int.com/downlo...s-2-1-1-en.pdf ?

This is by no means critical to me, I've seen the Release Notes posted in other threads, but I'd like to have the official version for my records.

When I open it with Acrobat Reader 9.4.2 it just hangs with a blank popup message box. Okular 0.9.5 sees one blank page. Opening it with Firefox 3.6.16 and the Adobe Reader plugin (I believe it's parts of the OpenSuse Firefox Extensions 1.0.1) produces "There was an error processing a page. There was an error reading this document (109).". The data returned is a PDF (I can see the eyecatcher) and is 214.5 KB.

The file is linked from http://www.pocketbook-usa.com/support/pocketbook-iq/ .

BTW, I did the 2.1.1 upgrade and seem to be fine. I'm not a WiFi user, so I'm not the one to ask about those issues. I did notice a minor font difference between 206 and 211 but it hasn't bothered me enough to back down to 206. I mostly use CoolReader3 and it's an old version, so that may be it. I grabbed a fresher apk from sourceforge so I'll try an upgrade when I get a chance.

Really do love these readers, very handy tools.

I just tried it and you're right. it's a no go.
I've attached the file that I downloaded from them when it first came out.

Another thing. Be aware that the TTS doesn't work eather.
You CAN make wi-fi work by selecting factory reset and let it do it's thing.

Thank you musicman2523, I appreciate it. The file you attached works fine. Good to have a record if I have to fall back someday.

I'd heard about doing the reset but haven't done one yet since I don't have WiFi. I briefly tried TTS back in 206 and never made much use of it so I guess I won't miss it.

Again, thanks for your assistance.
