Primarily Infrastructure Changes Toward Dual Epub2 / Epub3 support:
Sigil 0.8.900 (pre Sigil 0.9.0 series)
- Kill tidy and replace it with a combination of a specially modified Gumbo
parser that supports html5
- Kill Xerces and XercesExtras.
- Kill Boost, replace with C++ 11
- Kill unused bundles.
- Replace all "undefined - behaviour" use of "Null" References with proper
pointers across entire codebase to allow it to work with the latest
clang compilers
- Completely revamp the build process to embed the Python 3.4 Interpreter
inside of Sigil and integrate it in, including as site-packages:
[lxml, bs4, PIL, regex, six, html5lib]. This will allow plugins
that use the internal Python 3.X engine access to all of these
specialized packaes by default with no additional action
needed by end users of their plugin.
- Create our own version of BeautifulSoup4-4.4.0 called sigil_bs4 that
fixes lxml namespace bugs, fixes serialization/prettyprinting of
inline xhtml tags, and modifies the bs4 codebase so that a single
sourcecode works equally well on both Python 2.7 and Python 3.X
- Replace internal opf and ncx xml processing and cleaning with a
combination of embedded Python 3.4, sigil_bs4 / lxml
- Build hunspell as a shared library and then add a ctypes interface to allow
plugins to spellcheck
- Build our modified gumbo html5 parser as a shared library
and provide a bs4 ctypes interface to it for easy xhtml processing
in plugins that use Python 2.7 and Python 3.X
- Allow plugins to auto-fix "text/html" media-types to "application/xhtml+xml"
- Redesign the ebook source updates upon load process to use our modified
- Begin the transition to allow for both epub2 and epub3 editing
(Note: epub3 editing is still incomplete)
- Convert Flightcrew to become a Sigil plugin and replace it with
a simple and fast internal sanity checker.
- Update Hunspell dictionaries to be actual dictioanries and not word lists for en_US and en_GB
- Updated other dictionaries to their most current version to match what is used in LibreOffice 5
- Fix issue #54 modified date using local numerials when it should be
using Arabic numerals per the spec.
- Set the book to modified when font's are obfuscated.
- Change FORCE_BUNDLED_COPIES build flag to USE_SYSTEM_LIBS. This flips
the meaning of the flag. Now USE_SYSTEM_LIBS will enable using system
libraries. Also, SYSTEM_LIBS_REQUIRED was added which will fail the
cmake configure if any system libraries are not found instead of
falling back to the bundled copy. Finally, this makes the build more
consistent for Windows and OS X users.

- Fix issues 657, 661, 694 and 867: The Heading Selector in Book View will now function as

- Fix the entity display for shy, mdash and ndash.
- Set modified state on book when page order is changed.

XML (with error location and description), thus allowing him to fix the potential problems

Sigil v0.3.2 2010.11.24.
- added a new toolbar button for turning Tidy cleaning on/off; this option is also available
from the Tools menu (issue #553)
- added support for TrueType Collection fonts with extension TTC
- InDesign (as of CS5) refuses to list the fonts it embeds in the OPF manifest of the epub
files it exports, even though the epub standard demands it. This causes Sigil to not pick up
these fonts when opening such epub files. A workaround has been added that will detect such
problematic epubs and then load the font files.
- fixed a rare crash issue when loading epub files
Sigil v0.3.1 2010.11.07
- added a new "Font Obfuscation" context menu for font files in the Book Browser; the user can

the message that the epub has DRM

mimetype instead of "application/"

saved properly (issue #180)
- fixed an issue with certain path types not being correctly updated as a result of the
fix for issue #501 (issue #561)
- the Book Browser now prevents adding files that already exist in the epub
- previously, when adding external XHTML files through the Book Browser, any files (like CSS
stylesheets or images) that were linked from that file were included in the epub under a
different name if their original name was "taken"; this caused duplicates so this behavior
has changed: files whose names are "taken" are now skipped over (issue #482)
- fixed a rare issue that caused incorrect path updates for anchor links pointing to file names
that were suffixes of other chapter file names, and the anchor had a fragment ID (issue #598)
- fixed an issue with the image paths in background-image CSS rules not being updated when
the path changes (issue #594)

users on the same machine tried to use Sigil (issue #642)

the OPF spec uses the British "acknowledgements" (issue #611)

(issue #609)

use Cocoa instead of Carbon; support for Mac OS X 10.4 is dropped along with support for
PowerPC Macs
- fixed a problem with opening files from the Ubuntu "Open With" menu (issue #524)
- made Tidy handle common user errors like "&co." in the HTML source instead of "&amp;co."
- fixed a rare Tidy bug with disappearing spaces when the only whitespace in an element was
the newline following a start tag (issue #387)
- changed the internal DOM engine from Qt's QDom to Xerces; this should also bring numerous
bug fixes and performance improvements plus a small (~10%) decrease in memory consumption
(issue #367)
- updated Qt to 4.7: this should bring a 400%+ performance increase in Book View rendering
along with countless smaller performance improvements and bug fixes across the board

deleted from the Book Browser (issue #565)

different parent directories (issue #501)

(issue #265)
- changed Tidy to handle the common typing mistake of ending entities with a ':' instead
of a ';' (issue #535)
- fixed a bug where double-clicking a file in the Book Browser for a file that was already
opened in a tab switched that tab back to Book View; the tab now retains whatever View
it was in previously
- newly opened tabs now default to the View of the current tab (issue #468)
- re-engineered the locations where Sigil stores its work files; the system-provided temp
folder is now used; this should alleviate some permissions issues on certain machines,
especially Macs (issue #404)
- Sigil now prevents the renaming of files in the Book Browser to filesystem invalid names
(issue #493)
- changed the keyboard shortcut that opens the Replace dialog from Cmd+H to Cmd+Shift+F
on Macs only; Cmd+H is used by Mac OS X for window hiding (issue #477)

Book View if he switched to this mode in Code View, and then switched back
Sigil v0.2.3 2010.06.22.
- fixed an issue with the new data from one view sometimes not being saved in the final
epub when switching to the other view
- worked around a Qt focus issue causing current tab data to sometimes not be saved;
this was uncovered by fixing the hang-on-save issue, which was caused by the same
underlying problem (issue #466)
Sigil v0.2.2 2010.06.20.
- simplified the resource locking mechanism; should eliminate the hang-on-save issue
- fixed a problem with BookView chapter splitting sometimes not being registered on save,
causing duplicate content (issue #450)
Sigil v0.2.1 2010.06.18.
- XHTML files that specify two different encodings are now fixed by removing the incorrect one

term (issue #370)

(issue #369)
- fixed an issue with positive regex lookaheads in normal Replace (not ReplaceAll) (issue #261)
