We added support for Hashnode, Forem, and Medium. Forem support means you can publish directly to DEV.

In addition, we added a Finnish Translation by Jiri Grönroos, and a German Translation by Fish and Helix.

Networking calls are now mostly non-blocking, which means startup times have decreased. Add as many connections as you like, and start writing as soon as the app launches.

Stability (Hopefully)

Mostly a maintenance and bug fix release.

We fixed a race condition in PDF export and made some changes to adjust for Vala compiler changes.

Pretty PDFs

We've been at work making Export Packages that result in beautiful PDFs, like Highlighted Headings and Mr. Noto Roboto1.

This release will use WeasyPrint or PagedJS if available. It will fallback to Webkit2GTK and GTK's PDF generator if needed.

Highlighted Heading Sample PDF

1 Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we think they look great! But feel free to make your own, and if you're up for it, share them with the world!

Draft Check?

Need a second pair of eyes to look over your text? ThiefMD now has Link Grammar support 😸

Link Grammar Checking with Highlighting

This uses the revolutionary link-grammar, the same one that powers AbiWord's grammar checking. That revolutionary grammar checker that uses natural language processing to understand your sentences to see if it's grammatically correct.

Yeah. I know what you're thinking. This means ThiefMD has NLP built in.

We also fixed some bugs and icon loading (at least on the GNOME default theme).

PanDoc Monitoring Improvements

😅 was a bit overzealous with the last release.

Fixed image issues and added a watchdog timer for when pandoc is rendering the preview.

Fix Image Uploads

😓 We broke image uploads.

This fixes image uploads along with rendering previews when a relative path to a CSL file is provided.

WordPress got a huge update with Featured Image.
In the YAML, just add cover-image or featured-image to the frontmatter.

Publishing to and have a Pro Account? image uploading is now supported.

New Translations

Did you know Poeditor can be used to help translate ThiefMD? People have been submitting translations:

Thanks to everyone contributing!

UI Accessibility

We've added borders to sheets in the sidebar when using the OS Theme.

Stability Improvements

We've improved how heading margins are calculated, which means... we've relaxed font selection. You're still only limited to the family, but more should appear in the selector.

We've lowered the chances of crashing in experimental mode. When selecting text with experimental mode, bold links will become normal font as invisible text can cause a crash if formatted differently from surrounding text.

We made Experimental Mode Faster! We now check your proximity to hidden URLs instead of always scanning the whole document.

Bug Fixes

Fixed and issue where PDF export tried using non-PDF themes.

More advanced Regex highlighting. Reference Links next to In-line links should look good in most cases.

More to come...

We're still working on Tagging and Categories for WordPress and Ghost. Checkout the ThiefMD Project Board to see what we have planned, and let us know how we can empower you to do more!

Wordpress & Finess

Export to Wordpress!

Wordpress Export is just a Connection away. Open Preferences (Ctrl + ,), and click on Connections. ThiefMD currently uses the XML-RPC mechanism for talking to your Wordpress blog.

Eye Candy & Readability

New Eye Candy in ThiefMD

  • Recessed headers aren't just for looking sleek. They help you visually identify key points in your work.
  • If the theme you were using had background colors for code blocks, ThiefMD now renders the background for the entire block
  • Experimental Mode: ThiefMD can now hide links to improve editor readability. Enable Experimental Mode in the Preferences, or hit Ctrl+Shift+M
