FlexPaper 2.4.0 Release Notes

We are writing this as new builds are being uploaded to our deployment servers. It has been a long journey to get to this point and the journey is far from over. The past few months has mainly been characterised by moving into our new publishing platform based on Atom Electron. In short, I think its fair to say that we have fallen in love with Atom Electron.

New publishing modes

With this new release, two entirely new publishing modes are introduced to our publishing suite. A fixed layout and a reflowable layout which converts your documents to editable HTML5 elements. These new publishing modes will enable us to start delivering the ePub3 (fixed and reflowable) formats in the very near future. 

While we are aware that especially the reflowable mode still has a long way to go in order to meet all your needs and use cases, we still feel its time to take it out of beta and start the next phase of this project. A lot of improvements have been made and we are expecting even more improvements to the reflow mode during the next 6 months. A special thanks to all the beta testers that have been sending in bug reports and feedback to us over the past few months!

Major changes in this release:

  • Two new publishing modes for our desktop publisher (static HTML5 elements and reflowable HTML5 elements)
  • A completely new desktop publisher which is integrating Zine and 2 new viewer modes (Zine,Reflow). We will still be distributing our previous desktop publisher for the next 1-2 months as part of the transitioning into the new publishing platform.

New desktop publisher – built on @electronjs

We won’t be posting any monthly update for September, as we want to focus our efforts at getting a completely new desktop publisher ready (hint: it’s built using @electronjs). 

The new desktop publisher will integrate Zine and Reflow into the same solution. We are super excited to finally see these two products coming together in a common solution. Here’s a fancy screenshot for you to enjoy from the upcoming desktop publisher! 

We don’t have any outstanding critical issues with Zine or Classic but if you have any issue you’re waiting on getting addressed then contact us via email and we can send you a pre-release.
