The second and larger issue is there is more to plugin than loading them. That's what the system Qt provides does for you. It makes it easy to load plugins.

That's what I was afraid of: as I understand it, Sigil must know beforehand all the functionality of the plugin to load it - so new plugin features must cause changes in Sigil itself .

I thought perhaps one plugin would be very helpful: to load, say, something like DiapDealer python plugins?

Epub and Amazon is not an either/or. I have been uploading Sigil-built epubs to Kindle Digital Publishing for at least two years and find it by far the easiest format. I began nearly seven years ago with Word docs, switched to html (zipped with images if any) after about a year, and moved to epub early in 2011. The only issue I have found is that if one includes a cover in the epub, the Amazon conversion rather than suppressing it in favor of the separately uploaded product image will instead include two covers in the book. (This was new in 2013.) This requires me to create a separate epub for Amazon, but that's okay because I like to include links to my other books on the Amazon store, and that wouldn't suit Barnes & Noble and the rest.

I think I started with Sigil in mod 5. I couldn't use mod 6 on this particular machine, but mod 7 works a charm. To be honest, none of the upgrades seemed to me to be amazing (which is to stay, if it had been paid software, I wouldn't have upgraded). So I'm confident that if development stops today, I'll still be using Sigil at the end of 2015. As others have said, that's eons in internet time.
