We just released Pressbooks 5.5.1, which fixes an issue in the release packaging for Pressbooks 5.5.0 that caused some problems with the cover generator. We encourage all users to update at their earliest convenience.
Pressbooks 5.5.0, McLuhan 2.5.0, Pressbooks LTI Provider 1.1.0, Pressbooks CAS SSO 1.1.0, and Pressbooks Stats 1.5.0 have been released. These updates include a wide range of new features, enhancements, and bugfixes. Of note:
Pressbooks 5.5.0 includes:
- our Cover Generator tool, which was previously not available to Open Source users.
- a handful of new shortcodes to facilitate content authoring.
- a new tool for adding attribution and license data to images (many thanks to Brad Payne and Alex Paredes at BCcampus for building this feature)
- improvements to the accuracy of book cloning
- better support for TablePress
McLuhan 2.5.0 includes:
- usability improvements to navigation between parts, chapters, front matter, and back matter
- improvements to the comparison tool for cloned content
- improvements to the collapsible sections feature
There are also some bug fixes, coding standards improvements, and tweaks in the other plugins. Pressbooks 5.5.0 requires WordPress 4.9.8 and PHP 7.1 or greater.
You can read all the changelogs on our documentation site. Thanks to Brad and Alex of BCcampus for their development work and to Antonio Devís and Luis Izquierdo for their bug reports and suggestions.
We’ve got another patch release out (Pressbooks 5.4.7) which resolves a bug introduced in the release earlier today.
Pressbooks 5.4.6 is now available. This bugfix release resolves some additional edge cases which were preventing paragraph separation settings from being properly applied to the webbook. Thanks again to James Paradiso and Steel Wagstaff for their ongoing feedback on this issue!
- A fix for an issue where importing a Pressbooks XML file would ignore part content
- A tweak to our iframe handling which attempts to convert iframes into embed shortcodes instead of deleting them for users who lack permissions to add/save iframes
- A fallback for themes which don’t support Buckram 1.0’s updated textboxes
- A bugfix for part titles in Luther
- Some improved status codes for various conditions.
Pressbooks 5.4.1 requires WordPress 4.9.7.
