KOReader 2021.05 “Yellow Daffodil”

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


It was a nice spring month with a great quantity of smaller bug fixes, but nothing huge. In other news, there’s a new contrib repository that can more freely accept most user plugin submissions regardless whether we think it fits in with the rest of the program. Please see the README over there for more information.
