According to the release note, the new version of Kobo Books brings the following – improved chapter navigation and bookmarks, quicker library loading, keyboard navigation in the reading experience and fixed library sorting by author name. So, as we can see, this isn’t necessarily a minor update, as it brings quite a lot of new features.
