KOReader 2020.09 “Peanut Butter”

This month’s release addresses a few long-standing PocketBook platform issues to bring the experience more in line with other platforms. A big thanks to @ezdiy for the effort.

On Kobo it’s now possible to enable USB Mass Storage without (re)starting Nickel (#6552). Since most of the KoboUSBMS tweaks required touching the startup script, a full, proper Exit -> Start cycle is required (or a device reboot). With a simple KOReader restart, the old startup script would still be used, and it doesn’t know how to deal with the new changes, which at best means a crash or a shutdown.

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

Linkify Addressbar Segments in Vivaldi

Great news! My suggestion for segmented addressbars from Opera 11 Addressbar Revisited has been picked up by Vivaldi. Presumably independently, but this is the kind of development I like to see.
