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


screenshot-koreader-2020-12-17-zoom-options-fs8The biggest novelty this month is the reworked zoom functionality for paged documents, contributed by @jperon (#6885). Not only is it now easier to activate trusted companions like zoom to fit content, but easily customizable row and column modes were added as well. The directional arrows easily allow for switching between different routes to traverse the page. Happy holidays!
