The Readium development community is pleased to announce the release of 0.27. This release was pushed to master on 12 June 2017, but the Chrome app was only pushed to the store today.

This release of Readium SDK and ReadiumJS (Chrome app and Cloud Reader) is primarily a bug fix release.

The tag for this release is 0.27 on GitHub.

Improvements and Enhancements in this Release

Readium SDK

The only real change to the SDK in this release are some minor updates to the gradle build configuration.

Cloud Reader/Chrome App

There are two bug fixes in this release. The first, and most important, is to fix a regression bug in the handling of CFIs (locators inside a publication), particularly with respect to using CFIs with the table-of-contents in the CloudReader and the Chrome app. This bug resulted in inconsistent behaviour where clicking on a TOC entry would not go to the same (correct) location in the document. Instead, the destination would vary erratically. This is now fixed. The second bug occurred when some SVG was embedded in a reflowable document. In this case, the page-load spinner would be started on page load but would never stop. This is now fixed. The version of the MathJax library was bumped up to 2.7.1, which was primarily a build configuration upgrade. There were also a number of minor changes to build infrastructure (support for Yarn and Chai, etc.). The complete release notes are here.
