FBReader 2.1.4 and DjVu plugin for Android

September 21, 2014

2.1.4 is first publicly available release in 2.1.* series.

What's new in FBReader 2.1.4 (since 2.0 series):

  • New mobipocket (a.k.a. kindle) format engine; we expect that all DRM-free kindle books are now readable by FBReader
  • DjVu support (via separate plugin)
  • Fixed external fonts support (e.g. for Google Roboto fonts family)
  • Japanese support: localisation & specific fixes (many thanks to Tamotsu Takahashi and Naofumi Fukue)
  • A lot of CSS fixes (for ePubs, htmls and kindle books)
  • Sync improvements: do not start service if sync feature is disabled, 'sync positions only' option, annoying 'book not found' toast replaced with standard notification
  • Updated background settings: new textures, fullscreen mode, etc.
  • Updated Czech localisation (by Marek Pavelka)
  • Updated Dutch localisation (by Frank Fesevur)
  • Updated French localisation (by Mathias Monnerville)
