There are over 60 improvements and fixes in this release. Some highlights:

As ever, exercise caution when upgrading, and be careful to keep backup copies of everything important.

My sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release. It’s only a little over four months since the last release, and yet we’ve built up a compelling set of improvements.

The plan is that the next release will be v5.3.0 in the light of some significant improvements to transclusion that are under development here:


Any questions or comments are welcome here, or via GitHub.


Well done with 5.2.3.

Unlike the previous release I jumped on it mostly because I noticed at the right time, wrote something and immediately noticed the message about starting to save (before the usual saved). I use DAV so this could be useful somewhere with challenging connectivity.
