I got this from the stream list and thought you'd want to see it in case
you're not on that list.
Have fun, everyone!

New updates for Stream and Brailliant

     Victor Reader Stream and Brailliant updates available

September 14, 2016 -- HumanWare announces the immediate release of
Stream version 4.7 and Brailliant version 2.2. The following are the
feature enhancements which users will immediately see:

       Victor Reader Stream Version 4.7

   * *Support for subscribing and unsubscribing to NFB Newsline
     publications directly on the Stream (U.S. only).* Now similar to
     subscribing to podcasts, you can subscribe to Newsline publications
     via your Stream’s online capability. In the past NFB Newsline users
     needed to handle the subscriptions using their computer’s internet
     browser. Today you can search for a news publication you want to
     always have on your Stream, subscribe to it, and you will always
     have the daily newspaper with your morning coffee.
   * *Support for keeping specific NFB Newsline books (U.S. only). * In
     addition to handling the subscriptions to Newsline content directly
     on the Stream, now you can save daily versions of a publication for
     later use, just by tapping the 3 key.
   * *Ability to sync your time with an Internet time server.* After you
     update and connect to your Wi-Fi, first set your time to the current
     time in your time zone. After this initial setting is done, your
     Stream will always keep its time, as it is constantly validating its
     time with a network time server. And if you are someone who prefers
     to have their clocks set 5 minutes fast, have no fear as you can
     continue doing so. After you set it 5 minutes fast, it will continue
     being synchronized at that specific time until you change it again.

page will gradually be updated with the new software versions, for those
users who prefer to manually update.

   * *Introduces HID over Bluetooth.*In addition to offering a more
     stable USB HID experience, Brailliant version 2.2 offers the same
     solid connection over Bluetooth.
   * *Channel Switching Hotkey:*Now if you are connected to your PC via
     USB and you also have your Brailliant paired to your phone.
