Sigil v0.1.9

The changelog for Sigil version 0.1.9 follows:

Quote:
- fixed a regression that caused Sigil to demand that all XHTML streams in an epub file
be valid XML (issue #248)

- the "container.xml" reading subsystem now handles XML files with namespaces (issue #235)
- HTML encoding detection is now performed even on XHTML files in epub archives (per spec,
they have to be UTF-8 or UTF-16, but Sigil will now handle those that aren't)
- fixed an issue with content file filenames using "%20" for spaces not being loaded (issue #232)
- the temp directory used on Windows is now <Profile>/Sigil instead of <Profile>/My Documents/Sigil
(issue #222)
I didn't plan to make another release in the 0.1.x branch, but that changed today. I discovered a rather unpleasant regression bug that crept in 0.1.7/0.1.8: Sigil would demand that all XHTML flows in an epub be valid XML.

While the epub standard does demand this, it's often not the case with hand-coded epub files. Previously, Sigil had systems in place to correct such errors, but they were inadvertently turned off during some code reshuffling. So if you opened such a file in Sigil and got a blank Book View as if you had loaded nothing (or had some text truncated), this was causing it.

The other major bug fixed was a problem with loading some Gutenberg epub files. They use namespaces in the content.xml file which QDom doesn't handle by default, and this was preventing Sigil from loading such files. I rewrote that code and now it's working.

I also took this opportunity to release the first x64 version of Sigil for Windows. As I blogged about it yesterday, these users should see about a 10% performance improvement from that alone.

In other news, work on 0.2.0 is progressing quite nicely.

Yes, but I forgot to add one tiny little thing to the Windows x64 build so I pulled it. New installer for that platform will be up soon.

EDIT: Done. New build is up.

I reinstalled v0.1.8, and that version works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OK... open question to other Mac users: does Sigil 0.1.9 work for you? If it does/doesn't, what version of Mac OS X are you running?

OK I think I know what's wrong... I switched from a OS X 10.5 build system to a 10.6 one, and Apple changed something in both the new Xcode and dylibs. This error seems to be coming up often on the net.

I'll put up a new version as soon as I manage to convince the build system to do the Right Thing™ and not expect that people will only ever run the app on 10.6

Diana, I'd appreciate it if you could download the new version when I upload it and confirm that it's fixed.

The new 0.1.9b version of Sigil for Mac can now be downloaded. The only difference is that this version should run on OS X 10.5 and quite possibly 10.4. I'd like some confirmation for both claims.

I think there's a small bug in the windows x64 installer, as it has the c:\program files(x86)\sigil dir as the default (should be c:\program files\sigil)
Otherwise: thanks for creating an x64 build )

That's a bug in InstallJammer, and I'm aware of it. But still, thanks for reporting it.
