Amazon has rolled out a minor update to last year’s Kindle Paperwhite yesterday.
According to the changelog the update adds general improvements, bug fixes, and a few minor features. This doesn’t include any of the features which the new Paperwhite had at launch, but they till sound useful:
- Hide Reading Progress Option -While reading, tap the bottom left of the screen to switch between four reading progress options, including Location in book, Time left in chapter, Time left in book, and None, which hides your reading progress from the bottom of the screen. To learn more, go to View Your Reading Progress.
- Optimised PDF Performance – Increased stability for complex PDF files and shorter time to open documents.
- Improved Homonym Lookup in Chinese and Japanese -When you look up a word that has multiple meanings for the same spelling (homonym), you can view a full list of the available definitions from within the dictionary definition window.
The update will be pushed out to Kindles in the coming weeks,but if you want to manually download it you can click the following link.
