Sigil-0.9.16 Released

Sigil-0.9.16

For the impatient, the installer files (and source) can be found as assets at the bottom of the Sigil Github Release page.

The first Official Release of Sigil ported to QtWebEngine to replace QtWebKit. And yes ... Book View is still really gone. But the companion external editing application PageEdit is available for those who still need/want a similar functionality.

New Features
  • added epub3 tool: Generate NCX/Guide for epub2 e-readers
  • added epub3 tool: Remove NCX and Guide
  • added right click on link in Preview copies url to clipboard
  • added check mark indicator for current semantic set in AddSemantics dialog
  • opf guide is no longer used/updated in epub3, unless new epub3 tool menu is used
  • harden Sigil against maliciously crafted epub zip archives (aka zip-slip attacks)
  • added bk.getnavid() to the plugin framework and navprocessor.py for plugin devs
  • updated build documents to the latest Qt 5.12.3 and Python 3.7.2)

Bug Fixes
  • add missing title tag to nav head to make epubcheck happy
  • add dcterms:modified to empty epub 3 opf to keep epubcheck happy
  • fix lost Preview-CodeView sync when internal links are followed in Preview
  • fix macOS specific bug with newer versions of PIL (Pillow) used by plugins
  • no longer link against unused Qt frameworks when building (thank you eli-schwartz!)
  • prevent MS VC++ automatic reboots during Windows installs
  • prevent user from changing semantics of the nav file itself (it must be set to "toc")
  • fix bug that dropped nav from spine when HTML TOC created

Be aware that Sigil-0.9.16 no longer enforces the need for epub3 to have and support an NCX for the purposes of backward compatibility with epub2 reading systems. There are, however, built-in tools to allow users to add backward compatibility features such as the NCX to their epub3.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please check the Sigil Wiki for important Sigil support links, additional resource downloads, and platform-specific trouble-shooting tips/requirements.

Mac users should still download and install ActiveState's ActiveTcl Community Edition to utilize plugins that use Tk/Tcl GUIs. More here.

The latest Sigil user guide can always be downloaded from its own repository.

I especially appreciate the new Epub3 tool to Generate NCX/Guide

And the checkmark in Add Semantics is also nice

python3-css-parser not found, seems to work without installing it. (Did pip3 install css-parser after anyway just in case...)

Thanks, I'll make note of that in the documentation. I rarely know the exact package names these days.

It's still include in Sigil's source for, now. But it won't hurt anything to install it with pip. We're going to remove css-parser from the source eventually, so the documentation has apparently gotten a little bit ahead of that eventuality for Linux is all.

Does sigil open all of the ini files in its config directory? When I installed the new version last night it would open and then silently quit after a moment. I renamed my sigil.ini file in C:\Users\Lumpy\AppData\Local\sigil-ebook\sigil to sigil-baj.ini (typo, I had meant sigil-bak.ini) and started it and it worked fine. This morning it was doing the same thing with quitting so then I moved the backup sigil.ini out of that directory and now it's working, hopefully for good and not another temporary thing. I uninstalled the old version first before installing this version.

I do rather like the puzzle piece icons for the plugins; quite fetching!

Corruption on ini files should be a thing of the past unless you have an older version of Sigil running by accident or whatever.

If you are seeing regular ini file corruption issues please make sure that you have completely removed all older versions of Sigil. Especially if Sigil 0.9.11, 0.9.12 which tried to use utf-8 ini file encodings but that is completely broken on Qt.

Hope something here helps.

Excellent! Thank you.

And is that a patch-free PKGBUILD I see straight out of the gate for PageEdit?

Have the buttons to switch between HTML view and page view (I think that's the name. The buttons in the attached screenshot) been removed? I can't find them.

Ah, nevermind. Reread the first post. Guess I'll roll back to Sigil 9.14.

And if you reread the first post again, you can roll forward again to the latest version of sigil, then install PageEdit on the side...

Thumbs down Staying with 9.14

Yep, that's why I'm staying with 9.14. Tried the newfangled PageEdit - didn't like it. Unless I'm doing something wrong, the page doesn't refresh when a new chapter is opened - same (old page) remains in the editor. Yes, I can (1) save, (2) close the editor, (3) open new chapter, (4) open editor -- too complicated for my liking. That single click in 9.14 has me spoiled.

Yes, exactly like all other Sigil "Open With" editors.
