Amazon Kindle v2.5 Software Update

In the immortal words of Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, good news everyone! It looks like there is an imminent firmware update for the Kindle waiting in the wings – version 2.5. The exciting new features in this release seem to be collections for organizing books and documents into one or more groups or “collections”, PDF pan and zoom, improved clarity and more fonts. It will also apparently support some social network features such as facebook, twitter and shared “highlights” or interesting passages in books – ok, but I’m more interested in its book reading capabilities. In my opinion, this fixes almost all of the niggles with the device.

Update: My Kindle DX now runs with 2.5.2 – details here.
