We've grown used to our favorite Apple apps getting loads of new features when the iOS updates. No longer are we stuck with the tyranny of the hated Marker Felt in Notes, and Safari got some slick new updates that weren't in any advertisements. But what about the iPad's built in reader?
Sorry to say, iBooks doesn't yet seem to have any nifty new features. But the key word here is "yet." According to both a recent Steve Jobs Email and 9 to 5 Mac, that's about to change.

This would be the second sizable update to iBooks after enabling PDF-opening from the Mail app, the biggest feature is that iBooks will allow user created subfolders for organization purposes. As it currently stands, iBooks has two default collections, as it were. The buttons that switch from your PDF collection to your Books collection are apparently going to become a single one just named "Collections" (possibly with an overlay dropdown letting you choose which subfolder). Titles will be able to migrate from one collection to another.
Another new feature will allow for AirPrint which will allow you to get paper copies of your PDFs as well though this feature does not extend to EPUBs. PDFs will also have email capability, so if you're somewhere without an AirPrint capable printer you can email the PDF to a desktop with a standard wired printer.
Now it's just a matter of when this update hits the App Store.
