Sigil 0.3.3 now available for download

The open source Epub editor Sigil has just been updated. Improvements include:

  • added a small "Donate" button to the toolbar and a related entry in the Help menu
  • added a .desktop file for the make install target (courtesy of Richard Gibert)
  • this time *really* worked around a Tidy bug that added blank lines to the start of <pre> and <style> elements (issue #655)
  • updated ZipArchive from 4.0.1 to 4.1.0
  • fixed a regression crash bug with loading extremely rare HTML content documents that have an internal DTD subset
  • added a workaround for a crash bug caused by invalid epubs that use obfuscated fonts but with incorrect UUID URN key syntax (issue #709)
  • integrated the FlightCrew epub validation library; a new toolbar icon triggers epub validation and displays the results (issue #28)
  • fixed a rare input truncation problem when the input file contains a unicode nbsp and also specifies standalone="yes" in the XML declaration (issue #677)

This is my favorite Epub editor, and now that it has an integrated Epub validator  it's even better.

    I find Sigil to be a really elegant (and completely indispensable) tool.
