Since the previous maintenance solution was 4 months ago, I decided to create a new release with the contributions made since then. DTCoreText is not actively developed by me because at this time, the HTML parsing features embedded in iOS 9 and 10 are sufficient for most people's needs.
- FIXED: Crash when img tag had an invalid email address for an animated GIF
- since I continued to get good pull requests FIXED: Superfluos import for frame-based umbrella head that causes construction problems
- FIXED: The connection will be null when cleanString contains Chinese characters
- FIXED: DTCoreTextLayoutFrame memory leak
- FIXED: Some truncations can lead to a crash
- FIXED: Bounce unpaired bracket} and repair NSUInteger underflow in CSS parser
- FIXED: Space to " apple converted space span "2-space conversion"
- FIXED: Text block for text block (for drawing background rectangle) can be calculated incorrect [1
- ADDED: Look for `DTCoreTextFontOverrides .plist` in the main package if not found in the local package
- ADDED: Expanded character decoding sup port in stringByReplacingHTMLEntities [1 9659015] Thanks to Kasper Weibel, David X. Lau and several contributors who have not put a proper name on Github, which makes it impossible for me to thank them by name.
At the time of this writing I have 80 open problems, but for the reasons mentioned above, I will close them all for lack of activity. I have seen this exercise on the Fastlane project. I personally only want to work with a problem if someone hires me to do it. Other problems will only be addressed if someone gives a pull request.
Therefore, there are issues that basically say "I'm a beginner and I can not get the project to compile" is quite useless. Sorry, but I do not have time to provide free support or guidance.
I'd rather work on starting a new project that adds some missing functionality that Apple has not yet added to HTML parsing in iOS, especially support for editing dots and numbered lists. In particular, I'm interested in adding the correct handling for lists to UITextView that I use in this Babyforum.at app that we recently built for a client. I did it once before in DTRichTextEditor we should be able to do it in a UITextView subclass as well.
But ranting, for those who still insist on using DTCoreText, the update is highlighted on GitHub and accessible through Cocoapods. I do not know about Carthage, sorry. But I think somebody mentioned that this also works.
