As of today I’m retiring from being part of Sigil. Nothing nefarious just lack of time (mainly) and motivation. This doesn’t mean the end of Sigil. Kevin Hendricks and Doug Massay have been working on Sigil with me for months now. I’m leaving it in their very capable hands. To accommodate this transition I’ve created … Continue reading Leaving Sigil in the Hands of New Maintainers
This is a very small maintenance release. It mainly updates links for the change in code location. This release can be found here</a. The sha256sum of the checksum file is ec03bb7b586a4963fb9ac1ac22ae72c76360915775c0af631ce8e2da341aa0eb. Also, this is the last release that will have the Mac package signed by me.
This release is a maintenance release of the 0.8.x series and fixes a few critical bugs that could cause Sigil to crash. You can find binary packages here and the change log, here.

This is part of the Sigil's website get page. I figured since I was on a roll with Linux and the issues I have with the Linux community I would publish this here too. It explains a lot of my rational as to why I don't really like or want to be part of the Linux … Continue reading My Issues With Commercialized Linux
As many Sigil users know, Sigil has a WYSIWYG editor portion. It's also in my mind substandard. It gets the job done for quick edits but it's not as full featured as I'd like. Especially when I'm used to using editors like WordPress's editor. Back in 2012 I started researching updating the BookView editor. This … Continue reading Sigil and BookView Research Update
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 … Continue reading Sigil 0.8.4 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 … Continue reading Sigil 0.8.3 Released
