2.9 is the final subseries in 2.x series. FBReader 3.0, the biggest update since 2016, will be released by the New Year. Version 2.9 does not introduce any new features, but it is built with the latest Android tools, that will be used for 3.0. So if your device is compatible with 2.9, it will be compatible with 3.0 too.
Since 2.9 we release new versions for Android 4.1 and higher. For 4.0.* devices 2.8.13 is the latest version at the moment. We will release critical updates for old devices, if necessary. MIPS and ARMv5 processors are not supported anymore as well.
Fixed in version 2.9:
- Notification issues on Android 8.* and 9.* devices
- Page turning animation freezes
- Sporadic skipping of pages
- Possible crash during synchronization on Android Go devices
