Pressbooks 4.3, Pressbooks Book 1.10.2, Pressbooks Custom CSS 1.0, and Pressbooks Publisher 3.1.2

We tagged Pressbooks 4.3.0, Pressbooks Book 1.10.2, Pressbooks Custom CSS 1.0.0, and Pressbooks Publisher 3.1.2 on GitHub yesterday, and we’re deploying them across our hosted networks today. Here’s what’s changed:

Pressbooks 4.3

NOTICE: Pressbooks 4.3.0 requires WordPress 4.8.1.
NOTICE: Users of the Pressbooks Custom CSS theme must upgrade to Pressbooks Custom CSS 1.0 for compatibility with Pressbooks 4.3.

  • [FEATURE] Custom Styles: Navigate to AppearanceCustom Styles on your book’s dashboard to add custom CSS or SCSS to any book theme (see #658, #912, #925, #937, #938, #940, #941, and #942).
  • [ENHANCEMENT] Expanded the license property of the /metadata endpoint to include a human-readable license name and custom license text (if present) (see #934 and #936).
  • [ENHANCEMENT] Added the book’s short description to the /metadata endpoint as a disambiguatingDescription (see #930 and #932).
  • [ENHANCEMENT] Clarified errors when trying to clone a book from Pressbooks < 4.1 (see #914and #931).
  • [ENHANCEMENT] Renamed several action and filter hooks and deprecated the old versions (see #926).
  • [FIX] Fixed an issue which would prevent super administrators without any books on a network from accessing the cloning page (see #913 and #933).
  • [FIX] Fixed a regression which blocked the use of custom LaTeX renderers (props to @monkecheese; see #928).

Pressbooks Book 1.10.2

  • [ENHANCEMENT] Updated to version 2.1 of pressbooks/mix.
  • [FIX] The cover page now displays the subtitle from Book Information as the book’s subtitle, rather than the tagline.

Pressbooks Custom CSS 1.0.0

NOTICE: Pressbooks Custom CSS 1.0.0 requires Pressbooks 4.3.0.

  • [ENHANCEMENT] Custom CSS functionality is now included in this theme (see #2).

Pressbooks Publisher 3.1.2

  • [FIX] Prevented Pressbooks Publisher’s wrapper from being added to the user catalog page.
