V5.9 makes the following references to the cover
Code:
<item href="Images/cover.jpg" id="cover.jpg" media-type="image/jpeg" />
<reference href="Text/The%20Giant%27s%20Robe.htm" title="Cover" type="cover" />>
When I insert the following into the V5.9 content.opf
Code:
<meta content="cover.jpg" name="cover" />
every thing works fine.

You just need to right-click on the cover image and select Add Semantics -> Cover Image (along with adding the semantic type to the HTML file including the image). Sigil no longer tries to guess which image is your cover to avoid a few issues some people had:

- Implement issue 1414: Cover semantic should not be added automatically.
