    Sigil is a free, open source, multi-platform ebook editor. It is designed to edit books in ePub format (both ePub 2 and ePub 3).

This Sigil-0.9.7 release is a mix of bug fixes and new features for both epub2 and epub3 users.

Bug Fixes

  •     Prevent TextTab from constantly recentering page when focus is lost
  •     Fix bugs in plugin basename_to_id when used with xpgt files or any unrecognized extensions

  •     Fix undefined behaviour shifting signed negative values in 3rdparty libs and fix many warnings
  •     Fix text vs binary file type recognition in the plugin interface (CSS and js files are text not binary)
  •     Fix too small toolbar icons on high dpi displays
  •     Fix bug that caused text highlighting to get lost on some systems when doing a CSS Find & Replace.
  •     Fix bug in plugin interface basename_to_id to recognize .htm extensions
  •     Fix bug in epub3 semantic popups to always refect the local name of epub:type setting
  •     Fix bug where creation on an HTML TOC could overwrite an existing Nav under epub3
  •     Fix manifest id not starting with alpha character bug

New Features
  •     Extend validation plugin interface with add_extended_result() method to allow better cursor positioning

  •     Allow Linux Dictionaries to look up default paths for dictionaries passed in by build cmake settings
  •     Make the columns in the Manage Plugins table be sortable by the user
