In order to gain user base, I think these kind of processes should be done and explained in the most straightforward possible way. I understand the technical and priority challenges in a big project like KOreader, of course

Another possible posts to move here (I'll update it in the coming days):

OT: Anyone could provide some text about the technical details behind Zsync transport? It seems to use Bonjour.
Zsync description.

Some of those threads would not offer a solution to the issues raised and are old enough to have been superseded by development. (For instance the last one may have part of the impetus for tshering to create KSM8.)

IIRC, the "zsync" protocol used by koreader is actually a combination of filemq[1,2] and zyre[3]. Where zyre is for peer discovery and filemq handles the actual file transferring.

Oh yes, it seems quite interesting!

I also found the following library by the one of the same authors. I'm not sure what it is and what features does it provide:

nanomsg is basically a redesign/rewrite of zeromq in C.

I see...

What about this? I know KOreader uses LUA...

https://github.com/nanomsg/luajit-nanomsg

Would KOreader be able to use it? Would there be any advantages?

Another post to move. But I think this one requires minor surgery (I would separate the EPUB3 part into another thread, for example).

KOReader: a document reader for PDF, DJVU, EPUB, FB2, HTML, ... (GPLv3)

Can these be considered legacy posts related to KOreader?

Librerator seems at home in the Kindle Development forum. Looking forward, it might not be a good idea to put too much of the history into this forum and concentrate on those things that could help the new user or enhance the reading experience.

I would think that device-specific threads have their place in device-specific forums.Hopefully, they will get used exclusively for inquiries about device-specific implementation details.
There is no need to clutter up the KOReader forum with discussion of, say, Kindle jailbreaking, Active Documents, details about Kindle hardware, etc.

Now, it would be nice if generic KOReader problems could be split out and moved here (if they aren't really relevant to the device-specific implementation...). But doing surgery on years worth of posts is a PITA.


How about this? If there are any particular conversations that you think would be useful to go here, I will spin them into a new thread and move it to this forum.
I am a moderator in the Kindle forums, I can do that there at least.

PM me about it. and I will see what I can do.

I will also add a note in the OP of those threads that the KOReader forum should be used for questions about generic KOReader issues, and I will try to be on top of moving discussions from the Kindle forums to here, as needed.

@eschwartz;

I agree, and thanks much, I am not familiar with the Kindle side of KOReader, and could use any help available in that area.

Luck;

AFAIK, Librerator hasn't been updated for a long time and has been lagging behind on all the bug fixes and new features from the new KOReader. The fork was mainly targeted for keyboard kindle devices at the time.

I just tested KOReader on my K3 last week and it works out of box. I also tested and verified that it works on DXG awhile ago. I am pretty sure it should work for K4 too. So yes, KOReader now supports all kindle models
