Looks like the reading progress feature in the library has been ditched, whether it be the bar under the cover thumbnail on the left side or the circle on the right side.

Has this feature been moved somewhere else, or is it just gone from the library view altogether?

Yes, it’s gone for me also.

What a nuisance, I find this feature extremely useful and this is now the second time that an update has killed it.

Please Logos, re-instate.

Really like the new download UI / Process... a major improvement.

Small cosmetic bug. If Not Downloaded is selected in the filter when downloading results = 0 which is not strictly true at that point... if that part of the filter is removed the downloads continue as expected so no major issue.

The Android Notifications on what is left to download and what has downloaded is real-time... really responsive, I like that (pull down on Samsung etc while downloading and you will see what I mean).

I’ve been on to support and they have informed me that they dropped this feature in latest update.

I wish they would tell us when they ditch things and not leave it up to us to discover them and then having to report it as a bug. I hope they bring it back soon!
