Search&Replace is (FINALLY) nearing completion and a new version of Sigil with it should hopefully be released in a few days.

Publishers don't want what we can already get elsewhere (features in Calibre), we want what doesn't exist yet -- and that's a GOOD way to edit .epub files!
Point taken. While I do care a lot about the people doing professional work with Sigil (or at least trying to), I have to consider the people who edit ebooks for personal use.

But you're right. Improving the WYSIWYG/general editing experience should come first. And it does. The redesign is all about improved editing. I even got sidetracked with the current release (<sigh>) and implemented more than a few performance enhancements.

This is also one of the reasons why I'll be spending time on creating a plugin framework for the importers after v0.2.0: I'll be able to decouple the importing functionality from the editing, and hopefully others will want to contribute their own plugins, even independently of Sigil's main development branch.
