The One with the Thoughts of Frans

KOReader 2023.05 “Azalea”

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


This is neat. The FSF published an interview with me about KOReader. You can read it here.

Like any human I’m a bag of contradictions. I often studiously upload the correct cover to LibraryThing, yet in KOReader I’m perfectly satisfied with auto-generated covers if the metadata doesn’t specify any. But if you’re not, and you don’t want to edit the file itself, you can now set custom covers right within KOReader (#10329). A custom cover can be added or removed in the program through the book information page, or you can put a cover image in the .sdr folder manually.

Of course there are many other improvements. Enjoy!
