This version uses epub-press-js. This release is mainly to have a tag :).

EpubPress got a bit more secure today with the launch of https.

This will need to gradually roll out, as flipping the switch for everyone would break pre v0.8.0 versions. The server will be updated to alert users who need to update.

Until then the http version continues to work.

So update! Get the new magic! Stay safe! πŸ”’

Another day, another awesome release to EpubPress!

Frontend Changes:

We don't like failing. But sometimes we do (😒).

Previously EpubPress would just throw a ❌ in your face, drop the 🎀 and walk away (rude!).
This update adds error messages. So if for some reason we do have to leave you hanging, you'll know why.

Example:

If you ever encounter issues with EpubPress, never hesitate to email support@epub.press or tweet to @Epub_Press. We'll help sort it out πŸ‘.

Backend Changes:

  • Added a limit of 50 items per book.
  • Fixes for potential .epub validation errors.
  • Front-end site changes.
  • Better image sizing.
  • CSS for block-quotes and code blocks (Still working on making these nicer. As someone who likes creating coding books, I appreciate a well formatted block of code)

Feature requests and praise always accepted at feedback@epub.press

This release fixes a bug with failed downloads.
If the server failed to download/email a book, it is possible the extension could get stuck loading infinitely. The fix was to reinstall the extension.

This release should allow download failures to be handled gracefully.

As always, any issues can be emailed to support@epub.press.

Changes:

  • Filters for tabs containing images and PDF files.
  • Moving towards more modularity + testing to allow for Firefox/Safari extensions

Server Changes:

  • Improvements to image extraction.
  • Improvements to image downloading/detection

In Development:

  • Nailing down content extraction. It's a hard problem that poorly structured websites make even harder. Want to get to a point where the majority of sites can have content extracted perfectly.
  • Better logging to make finding the source of errors easier.

Thanks to all the users trying things out and raising issues ❀️.
