- May 4, 2022 — Updated EPUB 3 Specification Links
In anticipation of EPUB 3.3 moving to a W3C Candidate Recommendation in the next couple of weeks, all links to older versions of EPUB 3 have been updated. The changes in the EPUB 3.3 specification do not affect the guidance in this site, but the new specification is easier to read and includes many clarifications.
- April 30, 2022 — Redesigned Pages
The topic pages have been redesigned to make them easier to read. The table of contents for each page is now available in a sidebar rather than compressed on a single line beneath the page title. The breadcrumb has been replaced by a category heading above each title. Clicking on the category will take you to a list of all topics for that category. Finally, a "Topics" link is now available in the main menu bar to return to the home page. Previously, you had to click the site title to return.
- February 7, 2022 — New ARIA Accessibility Feature
