Introduction

Some introductory words what the activity is like. Any special things you like to mention that happened during the release cycle etc

More Info: link to get some further info about the activity

What is new for users

The read activity now has support for Epub files. For downloading Epub content, http://www.feedbooks.com and http://www.epubbooks.com/ are recommended place to start looking. Furthermore this release will let you associate (add and edit) notes with your bookmarks, and has a slightly more useful fullscreen view (you can now get a rough idea of how much battery is left in your laptop/netbook without invoking the frame).

Read displaying an Epub book, a bookmark with text notes is also being displaying for the page.
