I do hope they've fixed it so time remaining works for ePub. That was broken.

Well, from the update note it looks like the chapter progress is not hidden in the menu anymore. I'm not sure what they mean with the customized header and footer - isn't it already possible to do everything that's listed there? Hopefully what they've added is the ability to switch the information between header and footer.

I'd like to know that too. Anyway, I won't update until the patches are out.

I updated my old H2O out of curiosity - normally I would wait for the patches as well, but it's not my main reader anymore, so... The chapter graph icon is now in the top menu to the right of the 'Aa' icon. The graph seems to be updating normally now, so that's one bug that's been fixed.

The Reading Settings page looks different now. It's still divided into pages, but there's a scrollbar now to the right of the screen, probably to make it more obvious (you can change page by swiping up/down and left/right). The header/footer information is now on the first page, and the wording has changed a bit, but the options available for header/footer are still the same. IMO they're changes made to make everything simpler/clearer for the average user.

I'm seeing some other minor graphic changes (in the Filter/Order menus), in general the My Books page looks better and navigation faster, at least on my old H2O.

Yess! They fixed the removal of highlighting on the text page, when you delete it from the Annotations page.
In the previous release, when you thereafter returned to the text page, the highlight was still there. Not anymore ...

Do you still have to go to Home or Collections page to turn off WiFi? (no WiFI button beside light)
Is there still no Home button, only Back?

I may try the FW on my three kobo models on Friday. I'm sort of busy right now.

Thank you. It seems there is no major reason to update at all, for now.

Can ePub header/footer be configured to show time remaining?

my Clara is arriving today. sounds as if I shouldn't update today, merely try patches until patches are released for this update version. am I thinking correctly?

If you read KePub, there's a major reason to update. The reading stats have been fixed.
