KOReader 2020.11 “Hive of Industry”

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

2020-11 hives of industry-fs8

In November we’ve mostly seen the usual batch of refinements and bug fixes. The Android app will now avoid a zombie state when it’s killed by the activity manager (#6811). Besides that, we have a few new plugins: QR code display (#6844) and CoverImage (#6813), which provides a workaround for Android devices which use an image file to display a screensaver image.
