Another month, another firmware version. This time it is 4.25.15875 which should go to all devices except the Mini.

The change that I know of in this release are:
  • Added a Traditional Chinese dictionary.
  • Add clear history in recent search.
  • In a kepub, tapping a highlight will display the menu for the highlight.
  • In a kepub, an icon is displayed in the margin for all annotations.
    • Tapping the icon displays the notes for the annotation in a popup.
    • You can delete the annotations, or tap the edit button to change it.
    • The icon is only displayed if the margins are wide enough to show it.
  • Logging has changed. The log file is now only produced when the "Save logs" option is used in the Developers options. And the file is now encrypted. The latter is for privacy when the log is supplied to Kobo through the support systems.
    Note: The file is never uploaded automatically. You need to get it from the device and send it to Kobo support when they request it.
  • Bug fixes, including:
    • Fix Forma and Libra H2O not sleeping after powering on with the cover closed.
    • Fix dictionary display in MyWords.
    • Handle PDFs with text before the signature. At the least, the problem reported here has been fixed. I don't have any others that I can test with.
    • Fix to in-book search when returning to full results. The list will now show.

calibre
Calibre has already been updated to support this firmware versions 4.25.x. This is in calibre 5.4.0 and later. For those running older versions of calibre, you can safely use the "Attempt to support newer firmware versions" option in the driver.

I haven't finished looking through this version yet, but one thing which might be interesting is [ReadingSettings] showNoteIndicators. Edit: I guess this is what davidfor was referring to above.

And, one thing important for people installing older mods or ones which touch /etc/inittab: the shutdown line has changed to new SIGSTOP nickel+sickel and fsck KOBOeReader in addition to the previous behaviour of unmounting all filesystems.

Quote:
Logging has changed. The log file is now only produced when the "Save logs" option is used in the Developers options. And the file is now encrypted. The latter is for privacy when the log is supplied to Kobo through the support systems.
Furthermore, the old dmesg and syslog dumps don't appear to be produced anymore (but I haven't actually checked it yet). But, when developer mode is enabled, the syslog is now available over port 5000 and 5001 (and if you want, like before, you can always access it directly over telnet or save it unencrypted with NickelMenu).

There's also some new stuff about verifying firmware update files, but I haven't looked at it in detail yet.

___

I will start working on the patches later tonight.

You mean those of us that are still using Calibre 4.23 with "the" plugin not working on newer version of Calibre?

I don't know. With the details of the other dictionaries, the About page has the following:

When the note icon was added, I wasn't impressed and expressed my opinion. Especially as there was no way to turn it off. Adding that must have been a late change as I hadn't detected it. It isn't in the settings screens, so it probably was a reaction to my comments.

Quote:

That was the point of my statement about the logging changing. These are no longer produced automatically. And what is produced when you use "Save logs" is encrypted.
Quote:
But, when developer mode is enabled, the syslog is now available over port 5000 and 5001 (and if you want, like before, you can always access it directly over telnet or save it unencrypted with NickelMenu).
My understanding is that this has been there for a while, but was broken. It was fixed after I made comments about the logs no longer being available.

If you are using Windows, the best solution (IMHO) is to install 4.23 portable for use with DeDRM and 5.x as your main Calibre.
