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

koreader-2019 06-duindoorn

This release adds support for various Android Freescale devices, such as Nook, Onyx and Tolino thanks to the hard work by @char11 and @pazos (#3517, #5056). Besides that there have been various bug fixes.
