pre-release2 years ago

We are proud to announce the beta-phase for the upcoming 1.6 release, which will focus on fixing workflows and a better integration with your favourite citation managers!

This release is to a certain extend special, because it is the first release that was prepared using our new Continuous Deployment. Therefore, we would like to encourage you to report any possible oddities concerning the releases! This way we can ensure that the final 1.6 will be stable for everyone. However, we have already tested the builds, and so far experienced no problems!

Please also report to us via Twitter, the Forum, or GitHub, if the build does work! This way we can be sure that everything is as it's supposed to be! Do not only report errors, but successes as well!

As always, we'd like to encourage you to support the development over at Patreon or PayPal!

GUI and Functionality

  • New Feature: Zettlr is now able to open file attachments for citations in your files. Simply right-click a citation, go to "Open Attachment" and select the cite-key for which you want to open the file attachment. Got multiple? Here's how Zettlr chooses which one to open: All attachments are listed and then the PDF files are sorted on top of the list. Then, Zettlr will open whatever attachment is the first in the list.
  • New Feature: You now have an additional setting that allows you to determine if, and when, the filename will be automatically added to your link. "Never" means that the file name will never be added, "Only with ID" means that the file name will only be added, if the link is constructed using the ID, and "always" (the default) means that the file name will always be added, possibly duplicating it.
  • New Feature: NOT search operator. Now you can use an exclamation mark (!) before the term in your global search to exclude certain search terms. If any NOT-condition is satisfied, the file will no longer be considered a candidate. You can combine the NOT-operator with both exact matches (!"an exact phrase") and single terms (!word).
  • Pressing Alt-Up and Alt-Down will now swap lines in the editor window up or down.
  • Cleaned up the shortcuts. Until now, Ctrl+B would also make text bold on macOS. Now, only Cmd+B will work, while Ctrl+B will only work on non-Apple systems.
  • Improved the Math equation detection again. Now it's simpler, faster and will work more reliable. Escaping dollar signs should most of the time not be necessary anymore.
  • Added syntax highlighting to inline and block Math equations. Now they're displayed in monospace to make it easier for you to write them.
  • Title and tag matching of search terms during global search is now performed case insensitive.
  • Added an option to copy the filename of files to the clipboard via the context menu.
  • Exact search terms in the global search are no longer trimmed (trailing and leading whitespace is not removed) to maintain the meaning of "exact".
  • The AutoCorrect option can now be activated and deactivated as intended.
  • Added German secondary guillemets to the MagicQuotes settings.

Under the Hood

  • Fixed a small bug that would display a non-intuitive message when checking for updates and the update server is not available.
  • Fixed wrong error logging in the Citeproc provider.
  • Added the necessary cslenvironment to Zettlr's default TeX template so that Pandoc >2.8 does not throw errors. Thanks to @frederik-elwert for implementing!
  • Cleaned up the keymap for CodeMirror. It's now centralised within generate-keymap.js and not scattered in all the plugins anymore.
  • Rewrote the i18n loading logic, resulting in huge performance gains on startup. Thanks to @BAKFR for implementing!
