Kobo Firmware 3.11.0

Just thought I would kick off the discussion of 3.11.0 by commenting that I am now getting a "We couldn't recognize your MicroSD card. Please format...." on my Aura H2O. When I run koreader and try to access the uSD card, it takes about 10 seconds before the eLibrary folder on it becomes visible.

Edit: Working now. I connected the Aura H2) to my laptop, copied all the contents of the uSD card to a temp folder on my laptop, reformatted it with the SDCard Formatter, copied the files back, rebooted my Aura H20 and no issues so far. Koreader is taking about 5 seconds now before I can see the eLibrary folder on the uSD card down from the 10 seconds.

As always, I'm gonna wait for GeoffR to work his patching magic before I upgrade; just can't imagine living without TypeGenius for sideloaded fonts.

I've upgraded my Aura. I like it! Going to upgrade a Glo now.

Finding the TOC is a bit of a trick. Well not anymore. I must have been dazed and confused by my new glasses.

I love that you can select full page numbers, even for side loaded kepubs.

The option to adjust the font weight on the device. Out of the box it works only with pre-installed fonts, with GeoffR's patch you can also use it for sideloaded fonts. All the fonts I use look better on eInk when they are a bit bolder than normal, which is easily achieved using the TypeGenius feature.

I'm not sure I even need the patch, now. At least on my Aura, the weight of my side loaded font is very dark, the font thick. Maybe the previous patch is still lurking unseen.

The font thickness isn't any different from previous firmware releases.

My SD is detected under Nickel, but does the same 10 or more seconds waiting with both systems. I thought about the above solution, I hope this week I'll have time to do the above and it will help. But what are the new features of 3.11?

My preference is JSWolf's Charis SIL Modified. Pretty much as demibold font so I don't need darkening on it.

Looks like there are some new Reading settings. Fullscreen reading I enabled manually so I don't think that's enabled by default.

Under reading settings there are now options for how you would like your reading progress displayed. Chapter or entire book, as well as page number or percent read or time remaining.

Edit - Ryzir beat me to it.

I like the new page control option. I can now tap to turn pages if I'm holding with either my left or right hand.

Most of the changes I've noticed are in the Reading Settings.
  1. A new addition to the tap zones where it splits the screen into 3 horizontal zones which might be handy for one handed users.
  2. An underline keywords items -- connected to Beyond the Book???
  3. Display progress can select current chapter or entire book. Works for kepubs but not for my sideloaded epubs.
  4. Display progress as page number, percent read or time remaining. Time remaining seems to be only for kepubs.
  5. When using the keyboard, holding a key brings up accented letters. The lower case e for example pops up e acute, e grave, e circumflex and e umlaut. So if you were searching for a book with caŮon in the name, holding down the n pops up the Ů. Some oddities such as the l bringing up the l with stroke ( ł ) character which is not used in any of Kobo's supported languages.
