Pressbooks 5.4.0, McLuhan 2.4.0, Aldine 1.4.0, and more!

Pressbooks 5.4.0, McLuhan 2.4.0, Aldine 1.4.0, Clarke 2.3.0, and Jacobs 1.1.0 are now available! These releases contain new features and bug fixes, including:

  • A reorganized admin bar for network administrators and managers
  • A lightbox feature for linked images in webbooks
  • Core support for using DocRaptor to export PDFs (no additional plugin required)
  • Core support for WordPress 4.9.6’s privacy features
  • A fix for whitespace stripped from <pre> tags in the clone tool (props to Steel Wagstaff for the bug report)
  • A fix for timeouts during PDF exports of large books (props to Leah Root for the bug report)
  • A fix for broken internal links in digital PDF exports

In the updated book themes, we are now including Buckram 1.0, the first stable release of our book component style library. Themes built with Buckram have been updated to accommodate changes in this release, which improves TOC output in PDF and EPUB files, image layout, and educational textbox styling.
