Sigil 0.7.4 Released

This is a small maintenance release of Sigil. Books with an invalid doctype should open as they did in version prior to 0.7.3. Also, this release has a build for OS X using Qt 5.2.0 Beta 1. This release should support Mavericks though it has not been tested on Mavericks.

  1. I just tested it on a OS X 10.7.5. Should it be working on that version as well, or does it need Qt to run? Thanks!

    1. 10.7 has not been supported for the entire 0.7 series. Only 10.8+ is supported. Sigil is not guaranteed to work on 10.7.

    2. I was afraid you'd say that. Unfortunately, my machine doesn't support 10.8. Surprisingly, 10.7.2 works fine, though with the same bugs mentioned by others. I appreciate your help! Looks like it's time to squeeze the IT guy for a better machine. ;-)

  3. But it does not work on 10.7.5, it crashes immediately, like one of the previous versions did. I am going back to Sigil 0.7.2.

  4. I just tested it on OS X 10.9, it runs without Qt. Great job. Thanks a lot.

    1. It does run, but first you must override the fact that Apple OS shows Sigil as from an "unknown developer" Find Sigil app on computer, hold down Control key and select the app. Then select "open"

    2. Yes it does work after getting past the unknown developer issue. Thanks.

    1. It's not supposed to work on Lion. Lion isn't supported and it was never built to work on Lion.

    2. That's why the download page for OS X says 10.8+ meaning you need 10.8 or later. Sigil may or may not (most likely not) work on previous versions of OS X but it's not build for, intended for, or tested on previous versions of OS X.

  6. Works fine on Macs (0.7.2 on Lion, 0.7.4 on Mavericks), but on our lab PCs we can't insert .mov videos. They just appear as the name of the file. Ideas?
