The Readium development community is pleased to announce the release of 0.29. This release was pushed to master and the Chrome store on 22 December 2017. This release proves, if it was necessary, that the Readium “1” branch of the open-source effort is actively maintained, in parallel with the rapid development of the Readium-2 project.
This release is primarily consisting of some minor updates:
- Additional fixes and improvements to the Hypothes.is support in the Readium CloudReader
- Updating the Android support in the SDK to the latest releases for Android tooling and the NDK
- A number of minor bug fixes across the various modules.
The tag for this release is 0.29 on GitHub.
Improvements and Enhancements in this Release:
readium-shared-js and readium-cfi-js
A number of improvements to navigation and layout.
This release, tagged 2.29.0, includes no new user-visible features, but does include a large number of bug fixes related to navigation and page layout. These result in improved navigation and performance.
Readium Cloud Reader
The Readium CloudReader has previously been enhanced to provide support for the Hypothes.is annotation and bookmarking client/server infrastructure. This release provides a number of minor bug fixes and enhancements to that support.
Note that the Hypothes.is support is ONLY available in the CloudReader version of ReadiumJS. It is NOT available in the Readium Chrome app. We regret this, but it is simply not feasible to implement that functionality within the Google Chrome app framework.
The source code for 0.29 has been pushed to master. The master branch of the repos have all been tagged with 0.29.
The release notes have been updated here.
The develop branch is now tagged as 0.30-alpha. No ETA for its release is yet available.
