    Default v1.5 firmware

    Any news when v1.5 update is coming out?
    How long did it take them to release previous versions? I mean the time in between versions.

    Hope you like it!

    The first update came about three weeks after B&N started shipping them. The next I think was about a month and then a couple of months after that. I don't really expect a new update for a while. Most of the "major" issues have been resolved and so I think future updates will be tweeking those and adding new features. If we get more than one new update before the end of the year I'll be surprised. I hope we see one every couple of months but I think we will start to see updates less frequently now.

    That is kind of weird that B&N hasn't released an update that includes book organization, because that is one of the most important things in my opinion.
    Plus, I don't think it is supposed to be such a difficult thing for programmers to make this feature, perhaps, that is laziness from their side..

    P.S.
    Yeah, sorry about the heading, if I got you all excited
