I've not found 4.23.15548 to be laggy or slow(er). I've not tried the previous release that was for the Nia.

One update in 4.24.15672 that some may find interesting is that Kobo has updated most of the dictionaries and are now using Oxford except for the unilingual French dictionary which is still Merriam-Webster.

reserved (I'll fill this in later)

TLDR: So far, I've found a lot of improvements related to both the dictionary handling and the TOC view. The TOC view has now implemented the functionality of the patch I made a while ago to increase the indentation (it now has a specific value for each device which is about 3x as wide as before). It also now bolds the active item instead of adding a gigantic checkmark beside it. And, custom dictionaries are now a first-class citizen (more on this and the other dictionary changes with the next dictutil release)!

Note that this release might take me a bit longer than usual since I'm very busy right now and I'll also need to look at everything to do with the dictionaries again.

I will be making notes about the new dictionary handling here: https://github.com/pgaskin/dictutil/issues/14

Also see here for technical information about this release and stuff related to the patches: https://github.com/pgaskin/kobopatch-patches/issues/76

Whoa! That was fast! Now to sync my Clara HD to get the update, and if I find any changes, I'll be sure to share screenshots.

EDIT: Doesn't yet show up on my Clara HD, nor my Glo HD, and both Auras. I'll manually sideload the update!

EDIT 2: It looks like Kobo's eReader team might've uploaded this update 1 week in advance, as I noticed a mention of 1 October 2020 in the release notes:

What's new
I won't be taking screenshots of the dictionary menu, but will take screenshots of the TOC and annotation menus if I can.

That's amazing news (for me).

I believe you'll find that the dictionaries have yet to change; wait for October 1st.

Also this is the usual limited release, release so unless you manually install it you might not see it.

Ah! Thanks for the info! It probably has to do with licencing.

EDIT: I see them on my Clara HD after updating!
