Bug Fixes Since Sigil-1.4.0:

  • critical bug fix for incorrectly xml encoding of opf metadata attributes that use entities
  • fix bug in “Add Existing” files when file names would require percent encoding
  • fix bug in multiple language spellchecking dialog word lookup when no language attributes used
  • update de, nl, sv, ko, ru translations that missed the Sigil 1.4.0 initial release
