It's working on my my PW2, but only with AZW3/KFX books; it also doesn't appear to be working with publisher fonts.

Has anybody been able to get the black invert? I can't find it on my PW3 and it's what I was waiting for such a long time!

Nope I didn't get that option.
I hope it should be somewhere hidden which I'm not able to see
Still is black invert available because in Amazon update Notification they didn't told that.

The book I'm reading doesn't have the bold controls and all of a sudden, got a pop-up that says "Bold Setting Not Available. This book doesn't support bold setting for your font. You can choose Amazon Ember Bold in the display settings menu to read with bolder text."

According to the Oasis press release, this appears to be a 7" Oasis-only feature.

Starting today, the new size and bold settings as well as ragged right alignment will be delivered as a free, over-the-air update to Kindle Paperwhite (Gen 6 released in 2013), plus all newer Kindle devices.

Well, before it would give you a list of paragraphs with the search word highlighted and now they added the chapter number to the search results on top of each section of paragraphs. So you know where in the book the result is, not just the location/page. That is still there too.

On my first book the boldness slider was not visible, it's a personal document. I then checked an Amazon bought book and the slider does show. I can only surmise the boldness slider does not show for sideloaded books. Maybe others can check as well?

That would be a pretty serious bummer.

Neogenesis, an e-ARC I got from Baen a week or so ago and sideloaded into Calibre, has the boldness slider.

For what it's worth, the book I have been reading, an old book that was in Mobi format, I converted to AZ3 in Calibre and still didn't get the boldness slider. So I deleted it from Calibre, loaded it again from Kindle for Mac and converted that to AZ3 and the boldness slider is there. No idea why the difference; probably others will know.
