      Release Notes: Remembers the voice settings (name, pitch, rate, …) between sessions. Updates the timebar after changing voice settings to reflect the new estimated read time. Selecting table of contents entries now takes you to the text instead of the blank line before the text. Maps the new Cainteoir Engine styles structure to text view formatting (GtkTextTag objects) to provide better document rendering.
