Sigil-0.9.8 Released
March 21, 2017 ~ diapsondoug

This Sigil release is a mix of bug fixes and new features for both epub2 and epub3 users. Some of the highlights for this release include:

PyQt5 support for plugins. The full-blown PyQt5 is not included with the Mac and Windows bundled Python, but the Core, Gui, Widget, and SVG bindings (and a few others) are available. PyQt5 should be able to be used to create much more robust plugin GUIs that are translatable and that match Sigil’s Qt “look and feel”.

A new “Menus” tab in the Appearances Preferences section has a slider to adjust the size of Sigil’s main icons to your liking. This eliminates the need for setting the SIGIL_ICON_SCALE_FACTOR environment variable to achieve a similar effect. So those who were using that variable take notice.

The Windows directory structure has had a bit of an overhaul to eliminate the need for the duplication of some included DLLs and to accommodate PyQt5. The installer will be able to accommodate these changes (as well as test for Service Pack minimum requirements before the installation begins) with no manual intervention.

There was also an important fix for temp_folder issues on Windows systems that create a new system temp folder each login that made it into this release.

The specific changes/additions follow.

Bug Fixes

Make sure when new empty epub3’s are created that the toc does not use a doctype (Issue #250)
Make GetUniqueFilenameVersion work even on Case-Insensitive filesystems (Issue #247)
Properly urlencode/decode all hrefs in plugin’s ResultXML in launcher/PluginRunner to prevent parse errors
Enable Basic Cut Copy Paste Icons/Actions in OPF, NCX, XML, SVG, and other Misc Text Tabs
Add proper detection for minimum service pack requirements in Windows installer
Include workaround for bug in KDE Qt5 plugin on Linux that keep plugins from launching from menu
Prevent splitting Section0001.xhtml (Split at Cursor) needlessly rewrite the file’s manifest id with a uuid
Fix issue where merging files when non-xhtml tabs were open was causing Python errors or crashes
Fix segfault in Image Reports when deleting unused image files
Fix bug in prettyprint_xhtml in sigil_bs4 (put back inadvertently dropped is_void_tag routine)
Fix gumbo serialize to better handle injected newlines
Harden bundled Python isolation on Windows and add subset of PyQt5 to bundled modules
Harden plugin interface code to properly unquote/quote hrefs
Stop Sigil from nagging about unsupported mimetypes when epubs with Adobe xpgt page-templates are opened
Fix Book Browser highlighting issue when editable XML files from the “Misc” folder are opened
Pull upstream bug fixes from google’s gumbo parser for Sigil
Force formatting buttons in BookView to generate inline-styled spans instead of “strike”, “b”, etc
Fix bug from deprecated use of jquery $.browser.msie introduced when jQuery was updated
Fix temp folder specification on Windows systems that delete the system temp folder for every login (Issue #285)
Fix typos in metadata descriptions to allow better translations

New Features

New preference setting (Appearance section) which allows user to adjust the size of the main menu icons
Add manifest properties to Book Browser tooltips and to All Files Reports Widget for epub3
Make Sigil’s UI and spellchecker language settings available to plugins
Add support for PyQt5 for plugin gui widgets
Internal builds now use Qt 5.6.2 with Webkit added back
Windows structural changes to eliminate file duplication and to accommodate PyQt5 requirements
Update all build it yourself from source documentation for new requirements

Be aware that Sigil-0.9.8 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.

Sigil-0.9.8 like its predecessors passed all of the following tests for epub3 support: iframe, img, audio, video , mathml, svg (except for svg support in the spine), javascript, and of course recognizing and allowing html5 specific tags like section, and etc. Sigil-0.9.8 also supports javascript based local-storage and display of embedded pdfs.
