I’m delighted to announce the belated release of TiddlyWiki version 5.1.14:


Remember to keep careful backups before upgrading existing 5.x.x wikis at:


There are many, many improvements and new features in this version. Highlights include:

* Much improved drag and drop support
* A new tiddler manager to speed up reviewing and editing tiddlers
* Optional automatic relinking of references to renamed tiddlers
* Many new and improved filter operators, including a several new string encoding operators
* Added support for saving with the new Beaker Browser
* Several new plugins:
** The SaveTrail plugin automatically saves your work in the background to guard against data loss
** The QR code generator plugin generates QR codes from text
** The BibTeX importer plugin allows TiddlyWiki to import BibTeX files
** The XLSX Utilities plugin allows TiddlyWiki to extract tiddlers from spreadsheet files
* Many much requested smaller improvements:
** A select all/none checkbox in the header of the import panel
** A “close plugin library” button
** Improved display of plugin tiddlers
** Bigger icons for advanced search
** A new “sticky” mode for the info panel

Full details of all the changes can be found in the release note:


My sincere thanks to the many people who have contributed to this substantial release.

As usual, feedback and questions are welcome,

Best wishes

Jeremy.

Awesome! Really, I'm still in awe that something so robust as tiddlywiki can be made as a single page html document.

I use some of Ton's plugins and I might have added one of Tobias' as well. Any worries about compatibility?

This looks fantastic - great work!

This is the first time I'm upgrading after converting to a node-based version of my wiki - is it really as simple as "npm upgrade tiddlywiki"?  I tried that but now I'm getting a "$tw.utils.replaceString is not defined" error; is there something I need to do to update my wiki's core tiddlers, or is does TiddlyWiki detect and handle that itself?  Perhaps I have a plugin installed that is causing issues?

Hi Rob,

The npm stance that works for me in most situation is:

npm update -g tiddlywiki 

Hope this helps, 
Xavier.

I'm confused by the following claimed update:  "Optional automatic relinking of references to renamed tiddlers"

Is that referring to the checkbox to rename the tags and list field entries that contain that tiddler?  When I first read that, I thought it meant it would update standard links to the new tiddler name, but I just tested it and I see no option for that.  Any existing links will still link to the original name.  But maybe that was never the goal and I misunderstood.

Yes, that is correct. We may extend the mechanism to relink handle hard links in the future.

Hi,

I am confused by the description of the new filter operator suffix has:field as it seems that the examples filter the opposite of what is stated in the documentation.
http://tiddlywiki.com/#has%20Operator


To me, the examples make sense, the documentation does not. It would be very logical, if the parts marked yellow could be removed/added in the docs:

output
suffix field
» those input tiddlers in which field F does not exist
! output 

suffix field
» those input tiddlers in which field F does not exists

Am I missing something?

This is just a detail – many thanks for the great new version anyway!!!

Cheers,
Thomas

Hi Thomas

That text actually precedes 5.1.14, I’ve raised a query on tobibeer’s commit over on GitHub:


Best wishes
