What’s new in version 7.12.0

New features
  • E-book polishing: Add option to download external resources (images/stylesheets/etc.)
  • Conversion: Add an option under Structure detection to automatically fill in blank alt attributes for images that have alt text in the image file metadata
  • Content server: Use the book title as the filename for downloaded highlights
  • Review downloaded metadata dialog: Add a "Previous" button to go back to the last reviewed book
Bug fixes
  • Content server viewer: Fix the bottom of the text being cut off on mobile browsers when not in full screen mode. Unfortunately, this means the viewer now requires a browser no more than two years old.
  • Kindle driver: Increase the size of the cover thumbnails sent to the Scribe
  • Kindle output: Fix cover images that contain EXIF data without a rotation not displaying on the Kindle lockscreen
  • E-book viewer: Fix ruby tags not excluded when searching for text
  • Content server viewer: Fix a regression in the previous release that broke searching
Improved news sources
  • Economist Espresso
  • Slate
