Version 1.1 Premieres Today
Version 1.1 of Nantucket E-Books™ is released today. Among the updates are autoplay for audiobooks, support for multiple footnotes in one paragraph, and new markup for audiobook credits.
You can review all the new features of 1.1 on the versions page.
You can see all these features at work in the newest e-book on the site: Candide, by Voltaire.
Candide is one of my favorite books, and I am very excited to share it with you. This e-book features a terrific public-domain audiobook, narrated by Ted Delorm. Thanks to the autoplay feature, listening to the audiobook is a smooth, seamless experience.
The e-book also features extensive footnotes to help understand Voltaire’s historical references.
The markup for audiobook credits will be especially important for future audiobooks. Authors like The Human Trust are creating audiobooks with high production value, as seen in their cyberpunk novel The Curtains Are Blue, with multiple voice actors. It’s important that their work be recognized, and the new syntax makes it easy to do so.
New books are being added to the site on a regular basis. I’d like to thank the writers who are using Nantucket E-Books™, and I hope you have a happy new year!
