Transcribo-0.5 is out. Visit http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Transcribo/ for
more info. Alongside with the Docutils writer, there is now a module to

The rST module implements a reasonable subset of rST which now includes
section numbers, line blocks, inline literals, lists and enumerations and
topics. Many features, including control of the renderer through rST
directives, page references and TOCs with page numbers are planned.
While I am not aware of any severe bugs, some features would benefit from
refinement. Also, the documentation (planned with Sphinx) is sparse. But the
command line tools should be self-explanatory to anyone, and the renderer's
API is illustrated by the rST and plaintext frontend as well as a
stand-alone test script.
