Version 1.6 of the DAISY Pipeline 2 project is now available for download. The following alternative packages are proposed:
- for Windows users, an installer for the "Desktop Web UI" distribution (Windows .exe installer, 80 MB)
- the "CLI" distribution (ZIP, 40 MB): includes the command line tool and all the conversion scripts
- the "Desktop Web UI" distribution (ZIP, 80 MB): includes the command line tool, all the conversion scripts, and a version of the Web User Interface that can be run locally like a standalone application
- the "Server Web UI" distribution (ZIP, 40 MB): includes a version of the Pipeline 2 Web User Interface for installation on a server. It does not include the Pipeline 2 engine and conversion scripts.
This release does not introduce new scripts but brings many bug fixes and improvements to previous scripts. It notably adds support for converting MathML in the DTBook to EPUB 3 and DAISY 3 to EPUB 3 conversion scripts. Please refer to the release notes for more details.
Starting the Web UI
The Web-based user interface for the Pipeline2 can be started offline as a desktop application. The process has not changed since the previous release: To open the application, open the
start launcher in the
webui directory of the Pipeline installation directory.
An installer is now available for Windows users. It will install a launcher shortcut in the Start menu, and will perform all the necessary steps to configure the Pipeline 2 application. No more manual tweaking of environment variables is required.
For more details on the Web User Interface, please refer to the Web UI usage guide.
