XLingPaper version 3.13.0 (for the XMLmind XML Editor version 7.2+ or 8.2+) is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Note: for Mac users upgrading to this version from versions before 3.7.5, please see:

  1. Using a new version of XeLaTeX; and
  2. Some changes you may need to make in your documents.

This new version of XLingPaper has a number of improvements and bug fixes.

The main highlight is allowing formatting of short subsection level elements on a case-by-case basis.

If you have not previously installed XLingPaper, you can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at https://software.sil.org/xlingpaper/download/.

If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file. See https://software.sil.org/xlingpaper/download/config-only/. Be careful to get the installer for the version of the XMLmind XML Editor you are using (it is possible to install both, if you wish). If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer. It may overwrite your modifications.

The recent changes are:

  • 3.13.0 18 May 2023
    • Allow formatting of short subsection level elements on a case-by-case basis.
    • Improve publisher style sheet documentation on literal override.
    • Add check for a glossaryTermRef referring to the glossaryTerm it is in.
    • Fix bug: when an example contained a copied interlinear from an interlinear-text, the short name of the text did not show in its link.
    • Fix bug: an interlinearRefCitation element could fail to show the short title.
    • Fix bug in web page output: listDefintion elements were not shown in example elements if there was an exampleHeading.
    • Fix bug: a glossaryTermRef referring to the glossaryTerm it is in could cause any output to fail.
    • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
      • Fix bug: when a chart contained just text and was followed by a section level element, more vertical space was needed after the chart.
      • Fix bug: when an interlinear in a table had two free lines and the interlinear source was set to after the first line, the PDF would not be produced.
      • Fix bug: when an example had listDefinition elements and those had a list embedded in them, the alignment of the beginning of the list over-wrote the definition it was in.
      • Fix bug: when a style sheet had a section layout with a space before, that space could be doubled in certain situations.
