  • Update Windows builds use Python 3.5.2, VS2015

  • Remove support for python2.7 only plugins and simply Manage Plugins settings
  • Update to Qt 5.6.1-1 with QtWebKit added back for release builds for Windows (VS2015) and Mac OSX
  • Update Mac OS X and Linux build instruction documentation for recent changes
  • Allow Linux Dictionaries to look up default paths for dictionaries passed in by build cmake settings
  • Make the columns in the Manage Plugins table be sortable by the user
  • Better detect undefined and non-existing url fragments to prevent issues when splitting or merging files
  • Make tooltips for Run Plugin Icons show the name of the selected plugin on hover
  • Upgrade from jquery 1.6.2 to version 2.2.4
  • Upgrade from jquery.scrollTo 1.4.2 to version 2.1.2
  • Upgrade to double sized 48×48 pixel icons for High DPI displays, Special Thanks to PatNY for creating our icons

Bug Fixes

  • Allow tags in the svg and mathml namespace to automtically self-close if empty to help work around a bug in Kindlegen that will not seem to accept a closing svg image tag even though image is non-void
  • Prevent TextTab from constantly recentering page when focus is lost
  • Fix bugs in plugin basename_to_id when used with xpgt files or any unrecognized extensions
  • Fix typos in pls mimetype in plugins
  • Fix code synchronization issues among 3 places where file extensions are mapped to mimetypes
  • Fix plugin readotherfile interface to rebuild the opf on the fly only if it has been modified
  • Fix plugin validation issues with integer vs string representations of line number and character offsets
  • Fix duplicate filename in multiple directories bug when updating CSS urls
  • Fix bug in page-map.xml mimetype when “Add Existing …” is used
  • Fix undefined behaviour shifting signed negative values in 3rdparty libs and fix many warnings
  • Fix text vs binary file type recognition in the plugin interface (CSS and js files are text not binary)
  • Fix too small toolbar icons on high dpi displays
  • Fix bug that caused text highlighting to get lost on some systems when doing a CSS Find & Replace.
  • Fix bug in plugin interface basename_to_id to recognize .htm extensions
  • Fix bug in epub3 semantic popups to always refect the local name of epub:type setting
  • Fix bug where creation on an HTML TOC could overwrite an existing Nav under epub3
  • Fix manifest id not starting with alpha character bug

Be aware that Sigil-0.9.7 still enforces the need for epub3 to have and support an NCX so that it generates as backward a compatible epub.
