30MarkMyWords 1.10.0 Beta 1

Version 1.10.0 of MarkMyWords nears its completion and I can say without hesitation, this version is the most extensive and most complex update so far. Like all prior updates this will be a free update to all existing MarkMyWords users. In the following, I will explain some of the most important changes and emphasize some of the new features.


New System Requirements
MarkMyWords version 1.10.0 requires macOS 10.10 or later. The previous support for older versions of macOS up to OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard was simply impractical, especially with regard to the program's user interface. But internally code-based, there have been many changes to macOS over the years, so the support of older versions has led to more and more problems.
Direct Version
For a long time already, I don't offer a direct version anymore. MarkMyWords 1.10.0 will stop supporting license-keys which have been obtained over Xelaton.com. Those who have purchased a license for MarkMyWords over Xelaton.com will receive an email soon with a iTunes-code to load MarkMyWords from the Mac App Store. I know about the reservations expressed by some over the Mac App Store, but I do not consider it practical to keep a system running, which for a long time is no longer used in practice.
No Sandbox-Free version
the Sandbox-Free version was first released with version 1.9.0 in order to give MultiMarkdown-users the option to access the Terminal-Tool-Version of MultiMarkdown. Meanwhile, I was able to find a way to access the Terminal-Tool within the sandboxed version of MarkMyWords. So you get both benefits, a sandboxed version of MarkMyWords and access to the Terminal-Tool of MultiMarkdown.

Special new features

Revised Interface
The most obvious new feature is certainly the interface. Many (very) old elements have been renewed and unnecessary removed. As a result, many settings in the preferences have ceased to exist, as they no longer have any effect in later versions of macOS and were intended only for older versions of macOS.
CSV Import
CSV import is a convenient feature to insert tables quickly and efficiently into documents. When importing a table it will be automatically markup-formatted placed into the document so the time-consuming formatting is eliminated.
In my opinion the Textbundle-format is very interesting for markup authors. After Note-C, Myary and eBookBinder the Textbundle-format is now also available in MarkMyWords. Next to exporting, importing and opening Textbundle-files MarkMyWords can create Textbundle files too. On textbundle.org] you can learn more about this open format, learn its specifications and reasons for this format.
With MarkdownExtra another markup-language has been added to MarkMyWords. As the name implies, MarkdownExtra is an extension of Markdown. Because many websites (for example Github), applications and authors prefer this extended syntax, the introduction of MarkdownExtra in MarkMyWords was probably long overdue. MarkdownExtra extends Markdown by , tables Definition List, strikethrough text, footnotes and some other things.


Currently, I can not give a date when the final version of MarkMyWords 1.10.0 will be released. There is still much to do, website updates, revise various documentation pages, etc .. So I guess right now that a final version will be released in January. Those who find errors or have other comments, can get in touch through the Support contact-form.
