deplate 0.8.1 was released

This release incorporates the usual set of bugfixes, some general improvements, and support for dvipng. The way how ARG/XARG commands/macros work has changed.

Incompatible changes:
- deplate currently is slightly instable. This is related to a change of how ARG and XARG type of commands/macros work within #Def... regions, which are now passed through the template filter. In order to retain the old behaviour, set the legacyDefine1 variable.
- the locale-related modules were renamed to lang-* (in some cases underscores and dashes were transposed)
- most lists (e.g. css variable) are now comma-separated lists
- many regions (e.g. #For, #Def*) are first processed by the template filter before being actually expanded
- The use of @regNote (the part after the colon) will be deprecated in some future version; deplate currently displays a warning message that isn't always useful/correct and should currently be ignored in certain cases... read more

deplate: CVS is in use

I enabled the CVS, which can be accessed from the web at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/deplate/

As I personally use (a non publicly accessible) subversion, this is mainly meant to distribute the development version at the moment.

deplate 0.7.0 relased

Happy first anniversary! deplate is one year old. At the core of this release is a rewrite of how formatters are linked into the system.

Possibility to style output, which is demonstrated in some new modules: html-headings-navbar, numpara, mark-external-urls, latex-styles. A #Code region was added for displaying source code. For other changes please see the change log.

deplate is a tool for converting documents written in an unobtrusive, wiki-like markup to LaTeX, HTML, "HTML slides", or docbook. It supports embedded LaTeX code, footnotes, citations, bibliographies, automatic generation of an index, etc.

Many small changes were made in order to make deplate more consistent and more stable.
