Google Newsstand Updated

Google google newsstandrolled out an update today for their 5 month old Flipboard competitor. According to the changelog, the update includes a number of subtle improvements and bug fixes, including new support for rtl languages and a new home screen widget. But according to my source, the update adds a number of interface changes.

The my news and my magazines have been merged into a new MyLibrary section, and there is also a read now category bar at the top of the interface that auto-hides and allows you to easily swipe between categories.

And according to the changelog, there's also a new translation option and a new chronological  sorting option for magazines.

it's not clear to me whether the changelog or my source is correct; does anyone know?

You can find the app in Google Play.

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."
