Adobe has officially released Digital Editions 2.0, which comes with several improvements and changes.
- The interface has been completely redesigned to be screen-reader friendly.
- The software now presents ebooks as a simple tile or list item. The hover-over context menus are gone. To bring up a context menu, right-click on a cover image.
- Activating compatible ebook readers has improved significantly. Simply plug in an ebook reader, open Adobe Digital Editions (ADE), then drag a library title over to the device. The software automatically registers and authorizes your device with your computer’s Adobe ID.
- Adobe has updated the the way the software installs.
This is brand-new software, so there may be a few bugs. There’s one inconsistency that you should be aware of: Loan period banners are not always accurate. For example, a brand-new three-week loan may show up as a two-week loan. Loans still expire at the appropriate time. It’s just the banner that is off. OverDrive has notified Adobe of the issue.
