3.2.10 released

One of the shortest changelog from the birth of LGC, only a bug fixed but a very big one. Some weeks ago, an LGC user contacted me to point out that exporting a gamebook in the ebook format (the less known and used format, I think) images are not embedded.

I’ve heavily modified the code, to improve ebooks creation, to pass the EPUB Validator check.

sorcery-the-crown-of-kingsI’m still working on the “lite” version of the editor manual, and I’m very late with this task, but in my defence I’m working on a walkthrough for the The Crown of Kings gamebook, for italian readers, and at the same time I’m writing a gamebook of my own, a scifi/horror story.
