iBooks Updated Too

iBooks was updated tonight, and brings quite a few new features including an interesting nighttime reading mode, which is pretty cool. We also get a new full-screen layout, fonts, classic covers for public domain books, pop-up footnotes, and a redesigned annotation palette.

On a side note, the 20.7MB download will require WiFi to update or download. It will just start and stop if you’re on 3G, without a notification.

What’s New In Version 1.5
iBooks 1.5 adds the following new features as well as some stability and performance improvements:

• Nighttime reading theme makes reading books in the dark easier on the eyes.
• Full-screen layout lets you focus on the words without distraction.
• iBooks now features an improved selection of fonts, including Athelas, Charter, Iowan, and Seravek.
• Beautiful new classic covers for public domain books.
• Support for pop-up footnotes, included in select iBookstore titles.
• A redesigned annotation palette makes it easier to choose a color for your highlighted text.
