Special thanks to @dengste this month for adding natural light support on the Kobo Aura One (#3661, #3679).

You can control the natural light feature on the Kobo Aura One through the regular frontlight widget and the frontlight gesture controller. The latter allows for controlling warmth by swiping on the right of the screen, and is accessible via ToolsMore pluginsFrontlight gesture controller.

Those who read two-column papers might like the new two-column navigation (#3674) by @FranMarelli This does not work in conjunction with scroll mode.

Those willing to experiment can try the new Open with… option (#3653, #3678). You can choose which rendering engine to use for files that are supported by multiple rendering engines. Most notably you can choose to use either crengine or MuPDF for EPUB and FB2 files. MuPDF support is still experimental, but it may be faster in some cases. The program can now also directly open .bmp, .gif, .hdp, .j2k, .jp2, .jpeg, .jpg, .jpx, .jxr, .pam, .pbm, .pgm, .png, .pnm, .ppm, .svg, .tif, .tiff, and .wdp (#3651).

Finally, a little clarification on last month's HTML dictionary support. We use MuPDF to render the HTML dictionary results. Unfortunately, MuPDF expects its input to be well-formed XHTML, meaning XML. When the HTML is tag soup instead, KOReader will fall back to a stripped version of the HTML dictionary entry. Should this be the case, you can manually fix up the output by adding a .lua file in the dictionary directory. Further details and a few examples are provided by @poire-z in #3585 as well as #3606 and #3611.

We'd like to thank all contributors for their efforts. Some highlights include:
