[xiphos-devel] Xiphos 4.1.0

A bit late from original plan, but here it is.

4.1.x is expected to be a busy development time for Xiphos. Already with
updated Sword and BibleSync, future improvements will include heavy work
on module abbreviation sanity (it's an inconsistent hack right now; I'll
write about that to sword-devel sometime in coming weeks), more
BibleSync changes, resolution of the ("new") editor component problems,
and several other items on my mind.

Problems, questions...drop a note.

Source tarballs and Windows builds. Linux builds to happen as
per-platform builders do their thing.
I understand Debian/Ubuntu have a problem because of the outdated editor
issue. That will be handled soon.

xiphos.org references will be updated...um, probably tomorrow sometime.




Release 4.1.0
18 Apr 2017

There has been much bugfixing and a number of features and enhancements.
Internal compatibility updates were made for the new Sword 1.8 release,
notably providing some new av11n schemes.  Several flaws in Advanced
Search were corrected.  Ongoing changes to stay current with our display
toolkit were made.  Export output has gained headers showing what search
was executed on what module, and an export verse counting error was
fixed. Pre-book and -chapter material is visually offset from main
text.  (For examples, see module ESV2011 at every chapter 1.)  Due to
the availability of the new Android/iOS Sword app Bishop, which supports
BibleSync, Xiphos' use of BibleSync has been given some attention for
this release: fixed one bug; tightened up how a warning is used; added
optional on-demand-only keyboard-driven nav sync xmit as an enhancement,
so that Xiphos need not xmit every time the user navigates.

On Linux, when run under Wayland instead of Xorg, some mild rendering
flaws are seen.  Wayland is new, and working under it has provided some
surprises. Please help us work toward correcting these by submitting bug
reports when appropriate.
