Ahem. The days of Kindle Previewer being a quick, lightweight download appear to be over; hardly surprising given that KF8 requires a much more complex rendering engine than the old Mobi format.

My advice for the time being is to consider what aspects of KF8 will genuinely benefit your project, and to keep portability (both of your book’s source files to ePub, and of your Kindle files to older devices that will never see KF8 support) very much in mind.
