As per the title, new firmware update is available!
Let's hope for any possible exploits for jailbreaking! I'm wondering if Krack will work in order to jailbreak Kindles.

It is odd the the new version is only available for the new Oasis and the PW3 so far. I hope that this isn't an indication that the PW2 will no longer be receiving updates.

What is strange is that the 7th gen Paperwhite already has an update, but none of the 8th gen devices or the 7th gen voyage.

5.8.11 PW3 update give me different problems with pc connection. maybe they decide to update the PW3 too in order to fix them.

I just updated my PW3s to 5.8.2 without any problem. I was having no problem connecting to my computer with 5.8.1.1 either.

The only thing I found was the storage management and the way I use my Paperwhites it has never been a problem.

So for the PW3, it looks like the new firmware isn't a worthwhile update to 5.8.11.

for me this update was important because the pc connection problem I had has been solved

did you notice that they changed the restart page icon? for now, I don't like it so much

Barbara,
What are you talking about? I think the updates go to the Amazon side not the user side of the memory.

I have two Paperwhite 3 Kindles. One has 2.6Gb of free space and the other 2.8Gb. I'm not ready to panic.
