KOReader 2024.03 “Read ‘n Relax”

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

Sonnenfee - KOReader - 1000 x 852

The cover grid is now adjustable, allowing you to display more or fewer book covers at once (#11232).

In more technical news, the CSS pseudoclasses :is(), :where() and :not() are now supported (#11353), as well as a private syntax extension for matching text in user stylesheets (#11323). Also of note is the new HttpInspector plugin, that can be used to inspect KOReader internals while it’s running (#11457). This can be useful when the program is running on a device.

Last but not least, the user guide received a big update again by @offset-torque, full details here.
