As you may have learned, there is a new version of the XMLmind XML Editor (version 8.0.0). While it does load XLingPaper documents, it breaks the “Convert interlinear line to wrd elements” command (the Shift-F10 one). If you are keying interlinear text, this is an extremely useful command. XMLmind assures me that there will be a fix for this in version 8.1 of the XMLmind XML Editor. So please wait. If you have already upgraded and need this command, I recommend you uninstall version 8.0.0... read more

This is a maintenance bug fix release. The main bug fix is for the default XeLaTeX way of producing PDF.

To get this fixed version, go to https://software.sil.org/xlingpaper/download/config-only/. Here are the... read more
