Update sigil to 1.6.0

Authored by algent on Mon, May 31, 2:51 PM.




  • New Features:
    • Find and Replace search targets expanded to include tabbed files, CSS files, OPF and NCX files
    • Saved Searches now save full search Controls (mode, direction, options, and targets)
    • Preview loading is now completely asynchronous with a loading progress bar and loading placeholder
    • Merge will now automatically prevent duplicate ids
    • Merge will automatically add ids are former file boundaries to prevent TOC, Guide, and href losses
    • A new Xhtml Highlighter speeds up huge single file loading considerably
    • Redesigned CodeView Spellchecking to bring it back to Sigil-1.3.0 speeds
    • The External XHTML editor will now always pass along the OPF path and spine position to simplify interface with PageEdit (use "Open With" if you want the old behaviour)
    • Added PyQtWebEngine as a newly required python module for Plugins. ie. Plugins now have access to browser functionality for implementing e-Readers, more complex guis.

    • Add Qt workaround for restoring Sigil window sizes when FindReplace left open on macOS
    • Add missing tr() calls to the tooltips in the Special Character selection dialog
    • Fix bug when all unused selectors are removed as in css stylesheet - adds a comment placeholder
    • Make empty Nav have a title to help empty epub passing epubcheck
    • Fix bug where fonts couldn't be previewed when a space was in the path
    • Redesigned code to make Merging large numbers of files much faster
    • Fix bug in blank language field in Spellcheck Dialog
    • Fix use of different indentation of css via PR from BeckyEbook
    • Fix typos in plugin framework guide
    • Fix hang on launch when opf manifested files exist inside the META_INF
