I've installed it, but I didn't notice any difference yet. (after all, I'm really happy with this firmware, it has a nice overall look)

Possibly a fix for red freezes.

Few things I found using this firmware:
- Battery meter dont refresh its status when I connect the device to charge it while reading a book. It will change, but just after doing a "book closeing - book opening" method
- Cannot make bookmarks while reading fb2-books. (In the preferences menu there's an option to show bookmarks, but nothing happens - just a screen refresh - when I try to create one)

PDF reflow comes to the Lbook!
Announced as a beta here.
Download of the beta firmware here.
I am testing it now: it works great! PDF books which I could not read because they were encoded with fonts for A4 page size are now zoomable by entering the menu by pressing OK once inside the PDF, then 5 then choose the size of the text you want! And it is not slow!
This beta firmware does not read prc files though.
And it does not solve the instability problems of many unlucky owners of an Hanlin V3. Removing the SD-card from the reader still makes it stable, though.

Wow, I'm so loving this firmware! The PDF reflow is brilliant to say the least, and I agree the reflow rendering is snappier than I thought it would be! but here's one question...

I find that all Lbook firmwares use coolreader for rendering txt and doc files, which is something I don't enjoy. It takes very long to load the coolreader and it can't display Chinese menus properly. May I know if there's a way I can keep the new Lbook firmware and NOT use the coolreader for txt files? Thanks in advance.

I have no idea, but I guess no.
I read that Russian forum thanks to Google translation tools, so I do not understand much.
Maybe you could register on that forum and ask your question there in English?

Perhaps it would be better to ask for CoolReader to be fixed rather than ask them to write another reader for you. Doc in particular is not easy to support.

I read a lot of PDFs this is great. Not having mobi or prc is an issue but what the hack I can cover them to epubs which also look great.

Revision
I just noticed one issue in PDFs the reader strips the tables and does not show the material in order.
