After unveiling its latest Kindle lineup last week, Amazon has updated its Kindle app for Mac OS X to introduce support for new books that employ the Kindle 8 format. It also adds OS X Lion gestures and a number of improvements.
Users can now (finally!) user their trackpad to swipe through the pages of their books, and to pan in and out of pages, within the Kindle app — providing they’re running OS X Lion or above. They can also enjoy Kindle Format 8 titles, which offer over 150 new formatting capabilities, including fixed layouts, nested tables, sidebars, and more.
Amazon has also made improvements to performance for books that have a large number of notes and highlights, and improved support for larger libraries. It has also added support for the Japanese language, and quashed plenty of bugs.
Kindle version 1.10.3 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store now.
