Irex release new firmware for DR800, DR1000

The company may be dead, but the software development continues. From the Irex blog:

Today we announce the availability of Release Candidate 3 of DR800S(G)/DR1000 2.0 software. This release addresses various issues in the document viewer. Note that the translations of the GUI texts are not yet complete, so you may see English messages even though your language is set to something else.

    • zoom above 400% possible
    • auto zoom to best available factor, fix blank screens
    • reduced memory required while scaling images, fix overruns
  • Fix page flipping speed in reflowed documents (EPUB, PDF)
  • Fix size and position of page and scribbles when switching back to original size (PDF)

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
