The needed djvulibre library is in the build.  Trying the DjVu samples 
at http://djvu.org/docs/ , Read recognizes it's e.g. a 10-page file. 
But I had weird behavior: nothing displayed until I zoomed out, page 
back would make machine very slow, zooming in again would hang, etc.  I 
updated http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6223#comment:18 ; note this is a 
Milestone 9.1.0/9.1.0:+  bug.


Also TIFF display in Read continues to have glitches as it did in 
Update.1, http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7166

So I updated 
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_Notes/8.2.0#Activity_Issues to say:
   Read only works well as a PDF viewer. You can start other
   file formats in Read from the Journal but may have problems.


Reading the Sugar handbook PDF from the library, zooming to 400% and 
then page forward and back (I always click the wrong game pad buttons in 
eBook mode :-/ ) leads to really slow performance until Read dies.  So I 
reopened http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7090 , sorry if that's the wrong 
process.


These could all be manifestations of Evince memory handling. 
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6002 is closed, upstream is 
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=303365
--> Is there a way to tell that my XO is low on memory, or was low on 
memory just before a crash?  I don't see anything about low memory in 
the Read activity log or sugar logs.


I got the "Keep error" every time I stopped the Read activity, I added 
some log output to http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7843


Thanks for the new software, what's the OLPC PayPal account :)
