Obi 4.0 beta (second Test version) is released


Dear all,

Obi 4.0 beta, the second test release, introduces option to generate Media Overlays for Navigation Document in EPUB 3 export, which will enable playback of table of contents in the reading systems, a feature that provides reference implementation for achieving the behaviour similar to DAISY TOC navigation. It also implements further enhancements requested by members like improvements to automated page generation, quick review of project structure via Multi-section Operations dialog etc. along with bug fixes.

The previous test release, Obi 4.0 alpha, came with up gradation to .NET framework 4.0 to keep pace with the new technology. Additionally, it introduced automated page generation at specified time interval, option for preserving characters while importing old NCC files with Windows 1252 encoding, German language pack and more.

Please note, the support for Windows XP has been deprecated in Obi 4.0 test releases in favour of up gradation to .NET 4. The users of Windows XP should install Obi 3.9.1.

To know about the complete list of new features and bug fixes, please visit Obi 3.9 beta page:

We will like to thank all the contributors and supporters for their valuable feedback, translations and support.
We are looking forward to your feedback and bug reports.
