Kindle format 8 released

The new Kindle Format 8 is here, for ebook developers and authors…

“offering a wide range of new features and enhancements – including HTML5 and CSS3 support publishers can use to format all types of books. Many of the formatting features available in word processing programs like Microsoft Word will now appear in your Kindle books, including tables, highlighting, colored text, text wrapped around images, bulleted lists, and more.”

At the moment all this whiz-bang-ery is only for the Kindle Fire tablet. But…

“in the coming months KF8 will be rolled out to our latest generation Kindle e-ink devices as well as our free Kindle reading apps.”

“Lastest generation” sounds annoyingly like the Kindle 3 ereader users won’t get support for it?
