Looks like the comment was too long once I pasted the crash report... I made a new issue and attached the crash report as an attachment along with the problematic ePub (well one of them anyhow)

In the future, please don't attach ebooks that are under copyright to the tracker! I will download it to check the bug but then I will delete it from the tracker and from my drive.

Try to generate and epub from a public domain book or something similar.

EDIT: I did not mean to sound harsh, but we need to respect the author's rights. I still thank you for the bug report. I now know this issue is more prevalent than I thought.

Crap. I didn't even think about that. Sorry

It is all good Harsh or not you are right on your comment. It was my bad for not thinking about it. If it makes a difference, I actually paid for the book

Another crash report coming your way though. Same issue except I got a hold of the unibomber's manifesto and converted that to ePub

There's no need to include a new epub. The stack trace for the crash is the same as for the previous crash report. I would like to know which version of calibre you are using. Post it as a comment on the issue.

I love that you have a discrete TOC editor.

Are you planning to add support for Mobipocket OPF files? It would be a good way to pull all the parts of a project in so I could edit them as an epub.

Looks really nice. I'm curious though, do you think it'll ever support DAISY format ePubs?

This program is really, really nice. Despite the bugs that have mostly been reported, I found no crashes or anything. I think it's great that there is another product being developed for epubs.There were however some further features that would add much functionality.
Spell check - every author needs this, if they are using only sigil to make their books.
Tables - now I think this is important. I often have tables in my documents, and it would be good to keep having them.

So those are the two big things I think could be added. i really appreciate your software!

I urge you to give the alpha a try. It's alpha because it's not got all the intended features, not because it's unstable. I've been working it quite hard over the past day, and it hasn't crashed on me yet. A lot more stable than any beta software I've used.

libQtWebKit.so.4 missing

Running on Xubuntu 9.0.4 with Qt 4.5 (allegedly but not explicitly installed) and with no Calibre I get the followiing error:
Code:
error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
On my other Xubuntu 9.04 mchine - with calibre 0.6x installed - I do not get this error. I assume there is a library downloded somewhere that is not in the default Xubuntu setup. I'm sure i can figure out what the difference is but I figure this might be of interest to others

I'd agree with you on that, I've never gotten a usable ePub from eCub, no matter what I did, it just didn't work.

BTW, great program, just what I've been looking for. Can't believe this is just the initial alpha release, it's more usable than I expected.

I'll be keeping an eye on your progress with this app.

I just tested Sigil and it looks indeed very good. Since in an early development stage, I think I'm not going to go into a very detailed crash test yet but I already have some comments (which I may post as bugs/enhancements later):

My earlier question about it being "too smart" was motivated by my preferred workflow. I like to edit the XHTML+CSS in a text editor (vim) and then I'd probably appreciate a tool to generate metadata and TOC, so I'd wish Sigil not to alter the code if not necessary.

I opened an ePUB with Sigil and it looks like it makes it a single long text flow. Adding a view for separate files would be fine.

A CSS editor would be welcome too. And validators.

It looks like the TOC editor is dependent on HTML tags, that's fine for a start, but it should allow more flexibility, like adding arbitrary TOC entries and directly editing the TOC tree (the depth of each entry).

Is there a way to add linear="no" to spine items?

In the metadata editor, it should be possible to specify whether Author, Illustrator, etc. are "creator" or "contributor", and the file-as property. I see it includes date of creation, date of modification, etc. probably other user-configurable events would be useful too (and set date of modification automatically upon saving the file?)

I guess you already know all of this

As others have said, great work! Keep on with it.
