KOReader 2019.11 “Cleft Cloak”

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

After many months of testing, “best” kerning has been made the default. Without it, languages like Arabic and Hebrew won’t be displayed correctly, which led to some confusion with regard to last month’s release. The Latin alphabet also looks better this way, but less pronounced (especially compared to “good”). If you want to set an option as a global default, you can always long-press it.

We’d like to thank all contributors for their efforts. Some highlights since the previous release include:

AliExpress seller ships from Porselein

I accidentally ended up on the Dutch “translation” of AliExpress. The machine responsible did the best it could, I suppose…

The “Dutch” translation.

The presumably not machine-translated English version (at least for the AliExpress UI elements).
