Q4 Roadmap Preview

In Q3, we added a couple new and exciting features to Pressbooks:

  • Image attributions (thanks to Brad and Alex at BCcampus)
  • New shortcodes to facilitate adding more complex content

We also released a new Open Source plugin, Pressbooks Shibboleth SSO, which provides bilateral Shibboleth SSO integration for Pressbooks networks. And we converted a few more themes to use Buckram, our theme component library, which gives us added flexibility to add new theme options for all themes.

In Q4 we’re wrapping up a few loose ends from our Q3 goals:

  • UX improvements to the webbook Table of Contents
  • UX improvements to the Export page

We’re also working on:

  • UI and UX improvements to the Theme Options page
  • Adding support for DOIs in Book Info and metadata outputs
  • Testing integration with Gutenberg, WordPress’s new editing interface
  • Continuing to convert themes and improve Buckram

As always, we’d love to hear your ideas for Pressbooks, so feel free to share them in the Pressbooks Community Forum!
