Sigil 0.7 Beta (0.6.901) Available

Beta's for 0.7 are now available. Please see the Changelog for a full list of changes.

The biggest visible change is a live preview that can be detached and placed on another screen.

There were also some EPUB 3 enchantments. However, Sigil is still primality EPUB 2 at this point. It is basically EPUB 2 with support for some EPUB 3 features.

Also, Sigil is now using Qt5.

There is a known issue with context menus displaying with corruption on OS X.

Thanks. Windows could probably use a little more testing. Qt5 has really introduced a lot of changes in various places.

As a beta, please report anything - whatever it is.

The beta User Guide should be up soon.

Linux users (when someone compiles the beta) should note that the preferences have moved from $HOME/.local/share/data/.... to $HOME/.local/share/... due to a change in what Qt5 reports for the settings directory. You'll need to copy your files to the new area.

Edit: To track issues:

Spellcheck can cause a crash - best to wait for beta 2 to use any spellcheck features.

There is a known issue with context menus displaying with corruption on OS X.
Selection of text in Code View using mouse can be slow - try click then shift-click.
Tabs may be left open when opening a new book - recommend closing all tabs first or after.

A few things I forgot to Mention.

The switch to Qt5 has increased the package size by a large amount. This is especially true on Windows.

There is no Windows x64 build. I have not decided if there will be one. The change to Qt5 has made building Qt more difficult. Right now I'm only using the prebuilt Qt package.

Tabs from previous epub remain opened when new epub is loaded

First of all, thanks for this wonderful tool and all the improvements made.

Well, I started trying this beta and found that sometimes after working with an epub and saving it, when I load a new one (without closing the application) the opened html tabs of the previous epub remain in the screen.
If I exit the application and open it again, it works fine until it happens again randomly.

I have windows 7 64 bits.

@sellew - thanks. I was never able to reproduce this after seeing it once, but knowing it still happens should help track it down.

Sigil User Guide 0.7.0 Beta available online

Help->User Guide will now take you to the new Sigil User Guide 0.7.0 Beta.

The main manual has been updated for 0.7.0 - including What's New - but the tutorials have not been updated yet.

Let me know if there is anything needing updating, adding, etc.

Is there a BEGGING icon here?

Hitch, who really, really really would like a Windows X64 build.
