Annotum v2.0 RC1

@carlthewebmaster carlthewebmaster released this Aug 29, 2014 · 16 commits to master since this release

This is the initial release candidate for Annotum 2.0.

Important

We have made every effort to ensure backward compatibility with existing Annotum sites and content, but in some cases newly-edited articles may be 'un-published' if they contain invalid XML. Please be sure to keep a complete backup of all WordPress and Annotum code as well as your WordPress database prior to installing this upgrade.

Note that unlike prior versions, Annotum 2.0 requires server-side XSLT processing, so you will need to install and enable the php5-xsl module on your web server:

sudo apt-get install php5-xsl
sudo php5enmod xsl
sudo service apache2 restart

Known Issues

  • In PDF output, images that cross a page boundary may be cut off. This can be avoided by forcing a new page prior to every image by making the following change to the assets/main/css/pdf.css file:

  • PDF output support for non-latin character sets may be limited. As a workaround, replace the PDF fonts in plugins/anno-pdf-download/lib/dompdf/lib/fonts with fonts containing the desired character set. You will also need to update assets/main/css/pdf.css (see line 212).
