A Beta Release of Sigil ported to QtWebEngine to replace QtWebKit
- ported to use QtWebEngine (based on Chromium) to replace QtWebkit
- QtWebEngine plugs many major memory leaks. Memory footprint should stay low to moderate.
- QtWebEngine has ongoing security and support patches from Qt/Google/Chromium
- removes the broken/deprecated BookView Editor that relied on QtWebKit
- created PageEdit app (that uses QtWebEngine) that replaces much BookView functionality
to improve overall security
- adds action to launch one preferred external xhtml editor via shortcut or icon
(can be used to fast launch PageEdit app or any other xhtml open-with editor)
- adds 5 more plugin quicklaunch buttons to main menu for a total of 10
(with all new icons! Thanks so much Becky!)
It also includes all of the fixes and updates from Sigil-0.9.14.
Be aware that Sigil-0.9.15 still enforces the need for epub3 to have and support an NCX so that it generates as backward a compatible epub as possible. This may be relaxed in future releases.
Please check the Sigil Wiki for important Sigil support links, additional resource downloads, and platform-specific trouble-shooting tips/requirements.
