Material design FBReader and plugins

December 21, 2015

This is the biggest update since 2.0 release. FBReader 2.6 for Android completes transition to material design. We preserved the FBReader rendering engine and other features, but changed the look and feel of controls, dialogs, and other UI elements.

The reading mode menu is now split to left (“book”) and right (“main”) menus. This feature is configurable, user can move items between book and main menus.

Other major changes:

  • Custom shelves synchronisation
  • Fast scroll and alphabetic index in the bookshelf (swipe finger along the right edge of the list)
  • New page numbering algorithm and page numbers in the table of contents
  • Editable authors and tags in the book dialog
  • Simple widgets
