XLingPaper version 3.7.0 (for the XMLmind XML Editor version 7.2+ or 8.2+) and version 2.37.0 (for the XMLmind XML Editor version 5.3) are now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Note: for Mac users, please see this special information regarding Mac OS X 10.15 Catalina.

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

The main highlights are:

  • Allow usage of MathML.
  • Allow citation elements to have a time stamp attribute (for referring to audio/visual media).

If you have not previously installed XLingPaper, you can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://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.
