The One with the Thoughts of Frans

KOReader 2019.04

As one of the maintainers of KOReader, a versatile a document and image viewer, I’m proud to announce the latest release.


March mainly brought various under the hood improvements like faster blitting and better line-height handling, but also a more visible dual pages display toggle. On supported platforms, most two-finger swipes are now also configurable in the gesture manager.
