Sigil-0.9.3 is Released

Sigil-0.9.3 is a major new release that greatly improves Sigil’s ability to work with and generate epub3 ebooks without losing any of its epub2 capabilities. This release also includes a number of bug fixes and stability improvements.

The main bug fixes are:

  • Add a python based updatechecker for Sigil updates to prevent Windows OpenSSL build issues
  • Stop ‘Generate TOC’ from introducing unnecessary spaces in front of class attibute values
  • Use localeAwareCompare to attempt to add Index Entries to build them sorted
  • Fix segfault caused by use of possibly stale htmlresource pointer in FlowTab destructor
  • Workaround a Qt bug that causes slow selection/highlighting of xhtml in CodeView on Linux
  • Fix multiple typos in sigil_gumbo_bs4_adapter code and other plugin interface fixes

The main new features aavailable for both epub2 and epub3 users are:

  • Add an autostart/autoclose capability for plugin developers to simplify the plugin user’s experience
  • Add 3 User-assignable ToolBar Buttons for up to 3 plugins – users can now an assign key accelerators to them
  • Add General Settings Preference for setting default (epub 2 or 3) for new documents
  • Merge CleanSource Preference Settings into General Settings Preferences

The primary focus of this release was to continue improving Sigil’s epub3 capabilities. This involves a number of internal changes and additions to better support epub3 users

  • Completely reworked Sigil internals to support epub version (2 or 3) specific functionality
    • ImportHTML, ImportEPUB, Splitting and Merging, Index Generation, and Mend are all now epub version aware and safe for epub3 users
  • Add an “Epub3 Tools” submenu to the Tools menu with 3 new epub3 specific tools:
    • Update Manifest Properties
    • Generate Nav From NCX
    • Generate NCX From Nav
  • AddModificationDate upon save is now epub2 and epub3 aware
  • Added support for MathML in Preview via Mathjax.js-single polyfill (not available in BookView)
  • Added support to recognize and update upon load SMIL files and Adobe page-map.xml files
  • Recognize and store .vtt and .ttml files for video subtitles and captioning
  • Prevent attempts from using Metadata Editor gui from hurting epub3 until support is added later
  • Reworked the plugin_launcher epub3 interface code to allow fallback and media-overlay attributes
  • Add Setting to control Epub access non-multimedia remote resources
  • Add local-storage support to PV/BV for epub3’s that use javascripts
  • Make quoteurl url scheme-aware in both python and for Qt, since epub3 allows external resources
  • Many epub3 related bug fixes and changes to make sure all new epub3 href/links are properly updated
  • Extend url address recognition to include track, video, and object elements attributes
  • Added the MathML list of void tags to GumboInterface for proper serialization

With these changes in place, and running the first of the epub3 Testsuite (http://epubtest.org/testsuite/) tests for Reflowable Content Tests (EUPTEST 0100), Sigil will now pass **all** tests *except* for the following:

Failed Tests:

  • vide0-010: support for VP8 video (optional test)
  • video-060: suport for TTML video (optional test)
  • video-080: support for video with TTML subtitles (optional test)
  • trigger-010 … trigger-040: support for epub:trigger (required test)
  • mathml-080: support for long division (passes on Linux and Mac OS X, fails on Windows)
  • mathml-081: support for mstack, mscarries (passes on Linux and Mac OS X, fails on Windows)
  • bindings-010: support for opf bindings (optional test)
  • fallback-010 … fallback-040: support for opf fallbacks (required test)
  • switch-010 … switch-020: support for epub:switch element (required test)

In addition there is NO support for:

  • previewing /working with fixed format layouts
  • playback or design set-up of media-overlays
  • navigation via epub:cfi (Content Fragment Identifiers).

Be aware that Sigil-0.9.3 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-0.9.3 passes all of the following tests for epub3 support:

  • iframe
  • img
  • audio
  • video (except as noted above)
  • mathml (except as noted above for Windows)
  • svg (except for svg support in the spine)
  • javascript
  • recognizing and allowing html5 specific tags like section, and etc.
  • javascript based local-storage
  • display of embedded pdfs.

As there is talk at the IDPF of removing the requirement to support epub:switch and epub:trigger from future versions of the epub3 specifications, these will be very low priority items for the future. Fallbacks and bindings are really things meant for epub viewers and not epub editors in that they control what get shown in the ebook when a user navigates to something the epub reader does not support. You can of course use Sigil to code-up any of these features for use in an epub, it is that Sigil does not have the capability to actually preview it properly for you.

There is still much work that needs to be done to improve epub3 support, but we hope epub3 users will find Sigil-0.9.3 to be a big step forward in this regard.

Our plan for moving forward for epub3 support in future releases:

  • add a dc: metadata editor gui for epub3
  • add a gui way to easily set epub:type semantics on highlighted text blocks
  • change TOC/NAV generation tools to be built directly instead of form an existing NCX
  • change TOC/Nav generation to recognize and use epub:type / section semantic information
  • add support to preview fixed layout epubs
  • add gui editor for more advanced metadata editing to support SMIL and Fixed-Layout epubs
  • make the NCX removable in epub3 by preference setting but default to keep it
  • support for media-overlay (SMIL) playback during preview
  • at a lower priority: add support for epub:trigger, epub:switch during preview

Attention Mac OS X Users
Per the recommendation of http://www.python.org (see https://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/), due to bugs and the age of Apple’s internal Tcl library, you should also download and install ActiveState’s ActiveTcl Community Edition. To get the latest bug fixes, Sigil-0.9.2’s embedded Python has been linked with the very latest version: Tcl 8.6.4.1

We may *not* redistribute this Package with Sigil due to ActiveState’s binary non-redistribution policy.

So please, if you have not already done so download and install this version of ActiveState’s Active Tcl Community Edition, until we get a chance to do our own build of Tcl 8.6.4.1 from source for future releases. ActiveState is a primary contributor to http://www.python.org and a respected and trusted source for python and tcl/tk related binaries on both Windows and Mac OS X.

See: http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/downloads
Version: 8.6.4.1

Some Additional things:

When you fire up Sigil-0.9.3 for the first time:

  • navigate to the new General Preferences and select the default epub version you plan to work with (epub 2 or epub3) so that new empty ebooks start with the correct code.
  • If you plan to work with epub3 epubs, you should change your PreserveEntities setting to use ONLY NUMERIC entities. For example use & # 1 6 0 ; for non-breaking spaces and etc.
  • We strongly recommend enabling [B]Mend On Open[/B]
    in your settings as well for best performance with Sigil

Sigil 0.8.900 Released (first of the pre Sigil 0.9.0 release series)

Today we are releasing Sigil-0.8.900 which really represents the first of the Sigil 0.9.0 pre releases whose eventual goal is to add epub3 support without disrupting epub2 editing.

To accomplish this, Sigil has had most of its internals torn out and rebuilt from scratch with new components including Google’s Gumbo html5 parser and the use of an embedded Python 3.4.3 interpreter with lxml to replace Xerces and Tidy which had some serious issues with potential ePub3 support. As such, we do expect users to run into corner cases we have not yet found ourselves. So please test this new release and report any irregularities you see so that we can quickly iron out any difficulties before continuing our development towards support for both ePub2 and ePub3.

In addition, due to Compiler/DLL literal hell on Windows we have been forced to mix a VS2013 built Sigil, and Qt with a VS 2010 built Python 3.4. Given that Python 3.4 is C based (not C++) and given all python memory allocation/deallocation never crosses over our Python embedded interface, this has not proven to be an issue under all of our testing. That said, once Qt 5.5.1 actually builds with VS2015 on Windows, we will move towards using a VS2015 built version of Sigil, Qt, and Python 3.5 to make sure all pieces of the Sigil app are compiled with the exact same compiler on Windows. On Linux and Mac OS X where the compiler designers actually understand the concept of backwards compatibility using versioned symbols, separation of exception handling, and etc, none of this is an issue.

Features:

Features

– Removed Tidy and replaced it with a combination of a specially modified Gumbo
parser that supports html5

– Removed Xerces, XercesExtras, Boost, and unused bundles.

– Updated the source code to be compatible with the latest clang compiler by replacing all “undefined – behaviour” use of “Null” References with proper pointers across our entire codebase.

– Completely revamped the build process to embed the Python 3.4 Interpreter
inside of Sigil and integrate it in, including as site-packages:
[lxml, bs4, PIL, regex, six, html5lib]. This will allow plugins
that use the internal Python 3.X engine access to all of these
specialized packages by default with no additional action
needed by end users of their plugin.

– Created our own version of BeautifulSoup4-4.4.0 called sigil_bs4 that
fixes lxml namespace bugs, fixes serialization/prettyprinting of
inline xhtml tags, and modifies the bs4 codebase so that a single
source code works equally well on both Python 2.7 and Python 3.X

– Replaced internal opf and ncx xml processing and cleaning with a
combination of embedded Python 3.4, sigil_bs4 / lxml

– We now build Hunspell as a shared library and added a ctypes interface to allow
plugins to spellcheck

– We now build our modified gumbo html5 parser as a shared library
and provide a bs4 ctypes interface to it for easy xhtml processing
in plugins that use either Python 2.7 or Python 3.X

– Allowed plugins to auto-fix “text/html” media-types to “application/xhtml+xml”

– Began the transition to allow for both epub2 and epub3 editing
(Note: epub3 editing is still incomplete)

– Converted Flightcrew to become a Sigil plugin and replace it with
a simple and fast internal sanity checker.

– Updated Hunspell dictionaries to be actual dictionaries and not just word lists for en_US and en_GB

– Updated other dictionaries to their most current version to match what is used in LibreOffice 5

– Fix issue #54 modified date using local numerials when it should be
using Arabic numerals per the spec.

– Set the book to modified when font’s are obfuscated.

– Change FORCE_BUNDLED_COPIES build flag to USE_SYSTEM_LIBS.  This flips the meaning of the flag. Now USE_SYSTEM_LIBS will enable using system
libraries. Also, SYSTEM_LIBS_REQUIRED was added which will fail the
cmake configure if any system libraries are not found instead of
falling back to the bundled copy. Finally, this makes the build more
consistent for Windows and OS X users.

See https://github.com/Sigil-Ebook/Sigil/releases/tag/0.8.900
to get Sigil-0.8.900.

One additional note: as Gumbo is an html5 aware library, Sigil will 
now replace named and numeric entities with their actual unicode 
characters.  So you should make sure Sigil's Preserve Entities Preferences
settings includes   and any other named entities you want to 
keep as entities.
