KOReader 2021.03 “Magnificent Mullet”

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

There have been many behind the scenes code cleanups and speed improvements, but the one thing that stood out most to me personally was the new show QR code plugin (#7310) contributed by @AntonLee. It’s perfect to quickly check out an external link on your phone.
