KDocker 5.0 Released

I’m pleased to announce that with the help of Dave Butcher KDocker has been updated to use Qt 5! See what I did there with the version number. This release doesn’t introduce any new features. It’s so KDocker can remain useful and not become one more piece of software that you can’t use on modern […]

Sigil 0.8.6 Released

KDocker 4.9 Released

There are two big changes on the KDocker front. First I’ve released version 4.9. It still used Qt 4 and has a few bug fixes. Contributions from Dave Butcher were the main reason for the release. Also, KDocker is no longer hosted on Launchpad. It has moved to GitHub at (https://github.com/user-none/KDocker). The plan is the […]

Sigil 0.8.4 Released

With only one day after the 0.8.3 release 0.8.4 is being released. My deepest apologies because this means there is a bad bug. Admittedly it will only impact a very small amount of users but it was big enough to warrant a new release. Unfortunately during refactoring of “remove all plugins” code the actual remove […]

Sigil 0.8.3 Released

This is a big maintenance release. One of the biggest in long time. I highly recommend upgrading because while functionality wise not much has changed a lot of work went into improving stability Most if not all of the credit goes to Kevin Hendricks (KevinH on MobileRead). He spent a lot of time fixing every […]

Sigil 0.8.2 Released

This is a small bug fix release that mainly address the plugin framework. A lot of work has been done to enhance and solidify the Python integration. Finally a new validation plugin type was added so a validation plugin can pass validation results to the built in validation pane. As usual the binary and source […]

Sigil 0.8.1 Released

Sigil 0.8.1 is now available! This is a bug fix release. See the Changelog for a full list of changes. Also, the source package directory structure has changed a bit. A number of files that were top level have been put into a docs subdirectory. Further, the source zip package is now putting the everything […]

Sigil 0.8.0 Released

Introduction I’m pleased to announce the availability of Sigil version 0.8.0! The download location has changed sine the last release. This is because Google Code has stopped providing or allowing new downloads. Existing downloads will eventually be removed from the service completely. It has been nearly a year since the last release of Sigil. This […]

Calibre Quick Start Guide Fourth Edition

The quick start guide is something I’ve been neglecting for quite some time. When calibre 1.0 was released I really should have updated the guide at that time but I didn’t. This past week I decided that it had been long enough and the guide had to be updated. I’m happy to say that before […]
