Manuskript 0.16.1

Manuskript 0.16.1 is out.

Reason for this rather quick release after 0.16.0 is to fix some issues on Windows systems which caused existing projects to be incompatible, potentially even crashing the application on launch when loading the recent project automatically on startup.

Other operating systems shouldn’t have issues with 0.16.0 theoretically but it’s better to use the latest release in case you encounter issues and need to report them. So this here is a bugfix release.

What’s new?


In 0.16.0 we introduced a change to improve interoperability of projects between different operating systems. This has caused some issues which should now be fixed. Files of the projects will try to use UNIX typical line endings in their text files but old files from Windows will still work (be readable).

Another issue which caused crashes got fixed for Windows systems because some paths of files on Manuskript used the forward slash `/` (which is typically for UNIX based systems like Linux or macOS). However Windows usually prefers paths with the backward slash `\` for that matter. If the application mixed both options, files were not accessible and the application crashed. Yes, such minor differences and details still matter unfortunately.

That’s pretty much all which have changed since 0.16.0. So if you are looking for what’s new since 0.15.0 I would recommend checking out the previous post.
