What's New:

  • Set minimum OS X version to 10.9.0 in Info.plist so users trying to run on older versions of OS X will receive an error dialog instead of a crash dialog.
  • Set minimum Windows version to Vista in Installer so installation will error when trying to install on XP (which is not supported and Sigil binary packages won't run on).
  • Fix issue #21: Use Hunspell WORDCHARS to help in tokenization of words.
  • Pull request #19: Moving plugin description to ToolTips.
  • Pull request #20: Preserve current file name for future save as actions if appropriate.
