v1.1.3 (June 15, 2012)

Add a Print button to the toolbar found in the TOC pane.

v1.1.2 (April 30, 2012)

Minor internal tweaks.

v1.1.1 (March 13, 2012)

New collapse-toc parameter specifies whether the TOC should be initially collapsed.

v1.1 (January 10, 2012)

Whc now accepts raw index files. A raw index is an index were entries have not been merged and sorted. A example of such file is found in whc_install_dir/sample/raw_index.xml. (Compare this file with whc_install_dir/sample/index.xml.)

This enhancement was motivated by the fact that we have found that generating an index were entries are merged and sorted is almost impossible using XSLT 1. This task seems to require XSLT 2 features (e.g. grouping).

v1.0 (December 6, 2011)

First release.
