Pressbooks now exports EPUB3

Up until recently, Pressbooks EPUB exports were EPUB2.0.1, the latest version of the EPUB2 specification.

We recently released EPUB3, which you can find in the “Exotic Exports” list on the export page.

In theory, you should see no change in the exports, but under the hood EPUB3 is built differently, and provides support for audio, video, and, in theory, javascript.

Please test out our EPUB3 exports! Eventually, EPUB3 will become our default EPUB export — so please let us know if you see any problems! Which you could post to Github, or send us an email.

A big thank-you to Brad Payne at BCCampus for doing the heavy lifting on this project (and sorry it took so long to get it into Pressbooks.com!!)

  1. One of the things that I love about Pressbooks is that you are always updating the platform, and innovating.

    Thank you!
