I have heard rumours about an ongoing beta test of firmware version 6. Is there someone maybe who is participating in this test, and can shortly summarize what to expect from this new version? Thanks!

I am beta-testing and there are quite a few changes. These are the most important ones:

- redesigned homescreen with more book covers shown
- shortcuts on homescreen can be changed
- flightmode
- recommendations from the shop on homescreen (can be switched off)
- new context menu on homescreen, including "open with" (works with KoReader and CoolReader)
- one login for Pocketbook Shop, Send-to-PB and PB Cloud
- new EPUB reader engine for EPUB3
- redesigned the audiobook player

There are still some bugs in the current beta, that's why the release was postponed.

Hi, did they finally added option to justify text in default reader (text alignment), i know KoReader have that option, but i prefer default reader.

No, the settings in the PB reader are the same as before.
