I have not seen anyone say anything about this update. I updated my Oasis 2 on Wednesday and I have not had a chance to see what has changed. It looks to be just performance improvements from what I can see.

Thanks for the heads up. What performance improvements have you noticed?

I have noticed a lot less battery drain in standby. Maybe even while reading, but cannot say for sure yet. I don't normally pay much attention while reading. Only read on it for a short while yesterday, but including over a day of standby it shows 99%.

Sorry folks I have been very busy lately and I have not been back to this post for a while. I can say that battery useage is better than before, and it seems like the greatest improvement is in standby.

I was surprised to find that my Oasis 2 installed a new firmware version over-the-air today, even though I had already installed 5.9.5.2 from Kindle Oasis (9th Generation) Software Updates.

Looking further I found the the version on the website is 5.9.5.2 (3301990004), but the one that just installed is 5.9.5.2 (3307390005).

The What's New description is the same. I wonder what changed.

Yesterday, my Kindle Voyage has re-installed the software update 5.9.5.1 despite the fact I had already installed it, and despite the fact it was ON PLANE MODE! (but it was not 5 minutes before).

I was helping a friend set up a new Kindle Oasis 2 and installed the firmware 5.9.5.2 that I had on my PC from a few weeks ago. Within a few minutes of connecting the Kindle to the Internet it got an over-the-air update. I validated that it was 5.9.5.2 but didn't look further. Weird...
