Xiphos 4.1.0
18 Apr 2018

There has been much bugfixing and a number of features and enhancements. Internal compatibility updates were made for the new Sword 1.8 release, notably providing some new av11n schemes. Several flaws in Advanced Search were corrected. Ongoing changes to stay current with our display toolkit were made. Export output has gained headers showing what search was executed on what module, and an export verse counting error was fixed. Pre-book and -chapter material is visually offset from main text. (For examples, see module ESV2011 at every chapter 1.) Due to the availability of the new Android/iOS Sword app Bishop, which supports BibleSync, Xiphos' use of BibleSync has been given some attention for this release: fixed one bug; tightened up how a warning is used; added optional on-demand-only keyboard-driven nav sync xmit as an enhancement, so that Xiphos need not xmit every time the user navigates.

On Linux, when run under Wayland instead of Xorg, some mild rendering flaws are seen. Wayland is new, and working under it has provided some surprises. Please help us work toward correcting these by submitting bug reports when appropriate.

Xiphos 4.0.7
24 Sep 2017


This represents general bug-fixing and feature implementation from the
issues list, with a few other matters handled as well. More than half of
the open issues list (29 of 54) have been closed since 4.0.6, including
all but 2 outstanding bug reports. Some closures were unreproducible
bugs, or unworkable feature requests that had to be turned down. Other
closures are the result of some improvement in the code for this release,
some as described exactly, some as close efforts given the constraints of
how Xiphos operates internally.

  • changed module option Glosses to default on.
  • added config support, MinimumVersion: ignore modules newer than Sword itself.
  • updated French and traditional Chinese translations.
  • fixed dbus linkage failure due to insanity in latest release (rawhide).
  • #524 fix use of fonts whose names end in digits.
  • #725 add book/chapter journal template.
  • #739 click verse text before/after chapter to navigate across chapters.
  • #788 use saved status of detached sidebar.
  • #791 add maximized detached window of current bible on F11.
  • #821 update installation instructions (ubuntu).
  • #822 prefs option not to use alternating fg/bg in parallel displays.

Available:

  • Source tarball.
  • Windows 32- and 64-bit builds.
    (for 64-bit, correct the install path to remove "(x86)".)

Xiphos 4.0.6a (Windows only)

Xiphos 4.0.6a
10 Aug 2017


Windows-only release.
An error in the compiler has been accounted for, causing 1st-time user crash during module manager refresh of the Crosswire repository. Otherwise identical to 4.0.6.

Xiphos 4.0.6

@karlkleinpaste karlkleinpaste released this Aug 10, 2017 · 126 commits to master since this release


Xiphos 4.0.6
10 Aug 2017



Source tarball.

Fedora RPM.

  • Requires at least -common + one -gtkN. -debuginfo is optional.
  • Both -gtkN can be installed, managed by "alternatives" system.
  • BibleSync is required (also downloadable here @ github).
  • Note that these builds are GTK2/WebKit1 and GTK3/WebKit2, still
    managed by the alternatives system. Official builds for F25/F26
    no longer include builds using GTK2 or WebKit1.

Windows installer.

  • win32 works on 32- and 64-bit systems; this format is older/safer.
  • win64 is available but mis-installs in "\Program Files (x86)"
    fix this manually for now when install dialog offers.

Slackware


Updates and improvements since 4.0.5:

  • fixed longstanding display problem with webkit2 (now req'd for fedora).
  • added Italian translation.
  • updated French translation.
  • added alt-L toggle lemma.
  • added View Xiphos Releases to Help menu.
  • fixed biblesync passphrase preservation.
  • internal: removed all ancient ImageMagick references.
  • internal: removed HAVE_GTK_xxx in favor of GTK_VERSION_CHECK.
  • internal: fixed wk2 search result.

Due to long delay since last significant release, this release was
produced as soon as a fix for the WK2 problem was made, because that was a
showstopper for Fedora. A number of varyingly important bug reports are
in need of address soon, and another update will be forthcoming when a
reasonable number of those have been addressed.
