  • Slovenian Localisation: FBReader is now available in Slovenian.
  • Minor Fixes: Various small improvements and bug fixes.

The packages for all three operating systems are available for download from our site. Windows users can also install the update from the Windows Store. The Mac version will appear in the App Store as soon as it passes the Apple review procedure.
