NEW KINDLE DIRECT PUBLISHING FEATURES AND GUIDES

The newsletter of Kindle Direct Publishing announced today:

Update of Kindle Publishing Guidelines
Many of you use our Simplified Formatting Guide to help create your books, but for those who want a bit more technical detail, check out the updated Kindle Publishing Guidelines. This detailed document provides all the information and specifications you need to create fixed layout books and take advantage of some of Kindle Format 8's more advanced formatting features.

The guidelines are much easier to understand and have more features than before. E.g. you can add tables and better layouts, and much more. KF8 adds over 150 new formatting capabilities, including drop caps, numbered lists, fixed layouts, nested tables, callouts, sidebars and Scalable Vector Graphics - opening up more opportunities to create Kindle books.
