Changes Since 0.4
=================

* docutils/writers/html4css1/__init__.py:

  - Addresses are no longer enclosed in ``<pre>`` tags.
  - Literal blocks are now rendered in a single line of HTML code.


Release 0.4 (2006-01-09)
========================

* General:

  - Updated the project policies for trunk/branch development &
    version numbering.

* docutils/__init__.py:

  - Added ``__version_details__`` attribute to describe code source
    (repository/snapshot/release).
  - Replaced ``default_transforms`` attribute of TransformSpec with
    ``get_transforms()`` method.

* docutils/core.py:

  - Added ``publish_doctree`` and ``publish_from_doctree`` convenience
    functions, for document tree extraction and reprocessing.

* docutils/io.py:

  - Added ``DocTreeInput`` class, for reprocessing existing documents.
  - Added support for non-Unicode (e.g. binary) writer output.

* docutils/nodes.py:

  - Re-introduced ``Targetable.indirect_reference_name``, for
    MoinMoin/reST compatibility (removed in r3124/r3129).
  - Added ``serial_escape`` function; escapes string values that are
    elements of a list, for serialization.  Modified Docutils-XML
    writing (``Element._dom_node``) and pseudo-XML writing
    (``Element.starttag``) to use ``serial_escape``.
  - Added ``Node.deepcopy()`` method.
  - Removed the internal lists ``document.substitution_refs``,
    ``document.anonymous_refs``, and ``document.anonymous_targets``.
  - Added a "container" element.
  - Fixed bug where values of list-valued attributes of elements
    originating from custom interpreted text roles (i.e., with custom
    classes) were being shared between element instances.  Reported by
    Shmuel Zeigerman.

* docutils/statemachine.py:

  - Added trailing whitespace stripping to ``string2lines()``.
  - Added ``StringList.pad_double_width()`` & ``.replace()`` for East
    Asian double-width character support.

* docutils/utils.py:

  - Added ``east_asian_column_width()`` for double-width character
    support.

* docutils/languages/ja.py: Added to project: Japanese mappings by
  Hisashi Morita.

* docutils/languages/zh_cn.py: Added to project: Simplified Chinese
  mappings by Panjunyong.

* docutils/parsers/null.py: Added to project; a do-nothing parser.

* docutils/parsers/rst/__init__.py:

  - Added validator to tab_width setting, with test.  Closes SF bug
    #1212515, report from Wu Wei.

* docutils/parsers/rst/states.py:

  - Fixed bug with escaped colons indicating a literal block.
  - Fixed bug with enumerated lists (SF#1254145).
  - Backslash-escaped colons inside of field names are now allowed.
  - Targets (implicit and explicit), anonymous hyperlink references
    and auto-numbered footnote references inside of substitution
    definitions are now disallowed.
  - Fixed bug: list items with blank first lines.
  - Fixed bug: block quote attributions with indented second lines.
  - Added East Asian double-width character support (Python 2.4 only).

* docutils/parsers/rst/tableparser.py:

  - Added East Asian double-width character support (Python 2.4 only).

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/body.py:

  - Added the "container" directive.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/misc.py:

  - Added the "default-role", "title", and "date" directives.
  - Added standard data file syntax to the "include" directive.
  - Added support for "class" directive content.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/images.py:

  - Added ``indirect_reference_name`` support for images with a target
    option.
  - Added support for image width and height units.
  - Fixed bug with image "target" options.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/references.py:

  - Added "class" attribute to "target-notes" directive, for
    footnote_reference classes.

* docutils/parsers/rst/include/: Directory added to project; contains
  standard data files for the "include" directive.  Initial contents:
  character entity substitution definition sets, and a set of
  definitions for S5/HTML presentations.

* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/ja.py: Added to project: Japanese
  mappings by David Goodger.
  
* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/zh_cn.py: Added to project:
  Simplified Chinese mappings by Panjunyong.

* docutils/readers/__init__.py:

  - Added universal.Decorations and universal.ExposeInternals
    transforms as default transforms for all readers.
  - Added ``ReReader`` base class for readers that reread an existing
    document tree.

* docutils/readers/doctree.py: Added to project; a reader for existing
  document trees.

* docutils/transforms/frontmatter.py:

  - Fixed the DocInfo transform to handle SVN-style expansion of the
    "Date" keyword.
  - In ``DocInfo.extract_authors``, treat the contents of "authors"
    fields uniformly.

* docutils/transforms/misc.py:

  - Added misc.Transitions transform, extracted from
    universal.FinalChecks.

* docutils/transforms/references.py:

  - Added references.DanglingReferences transform, extracted from
    universal.FinalChecks.
  - Fixed bug with doubly-indirect substitutions.
  - Added footnote_reference classes attribute to "TargetNotes".
  - Fixed bug with circular substitution definitions that put Docutils
    into an infinite loop.

* docutils/transforms/universal.py:

  - Added universal.ExposeInternals transform, extracted from
    universal.FinalChecks.
  - Removed universal.FinalChecks transform (logic has been moved to
    several new transforms).
  - Fixed bug with the "expose_internals" setting and Text nodes
    (exposed by the "rawsource" internal attribute).
  - Added the universal.StripComments transform, implementation of the
    "strip_comments" setting.

* docutils/transforms/writer_aux.py: Added to project; auxiliary
  transforms for writers.

  - Added ``Compound`` transform, which flattens compound paragraphs.

* docutils/writers/: Several writer modules (html4css1.py) were
  converted into packages.  Support modules and data files have been
  moved into the packages.  The stylesheets for the HTML writers are
  now installed along with the code, the code knows where to find
  them, and the default is to use them (actually, to embed them).
  Some adjustments to configuration files may be necessary.  The
  easiest way to obtain the new default behavior is to remove all
  settings whose name includes "stylesheet".

* docutils/writers/__init__.py:

  - Added universal.Messages and universal.FilterMessages transforms

  - Refactored ``Body.parse_directive`` into ``run_directive`` and
    ``parse_directive_block``.

* docutils/parsers/rst/tableparser.py:

  - Reworked for ``StringList``, to support "include" directives in
    table cells.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/__init__.py:

  - Renamed ``unchanged()`` directive option conversion function to
    ``unchanged_required``, and added a new ``unchanged``.
  - Catch unicode value too high error; fixes bug 781766.
  - Beefed up directive error reporting.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/body.py:

  - Added basic "table" directive.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/images.py:

  - Added "target" option to "image" directive.
  - Added name attribute to references containing the reference name only
    through whitespace_normalize_name (no case changes).

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/misc.py:

  - Isolated the import of the ``urllib2`` module; was causing
    problems on SourceForge (``libssl.so.2`` unavailable?).
  - Added the "role" directive for declaring custom interpreted text
    roles.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/parts.py:

  - The "contents" directive does more work up-front, creating the
    "topic" and "title", and leaving the "pending" node for the
    transform.  Allows earlier reference resolution; fixes subtle bug.

* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/af.py: Added to project; Afrikaans
  mappings by Jannie Hofmeyr.

* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/cs.py: Added to project; Czech
  mappings by Marek Blaha.

* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/eo.py: Added to project; Esperanto
  mappings by Marcelo Huerta San Martin.

  Portuguese mappings by Lalo Martins.

* docutils/parsers/rst/languages/ru.py: Added to project; Russian
  mappings by Roman Suzi.

* docutils/transforms/parts.py:

  - The "contents" directive does more work up-front, creating the
    "topic" and "title", and leaving the "pending" node for the
    transform.  Allows earlier reference resolution; fixes subtle bug.
  - Added support for disabling of section numbering.

* docutils/transforms/references.py:

  - Verifying that external targets are truly targets and not indirect
    references. This is because we are now adding a "name" attribute to
    references in addition to targets. Note sure if this is correct!
  - Added code to hook into the unknown_reference_resolvers list for a
    transformer in resolve_indirect_target. This allows the
    unknown_reference_resolvers to keep around indirect targets which
    docutils doesn't know about.
  - Added specific error message for duplicate targets.

* docutils/transforms/universal.py:

  - Added FilterMessages transform (removes system messages below the
    verbosity threshold).
  - Added hook (via docutils.TransformSpec.unknown_reference_resolvers)
    to FinalCheckVisitor for application-specific handling of
    unresolvable references.
  - Added specific error message for duplicate targets.

* docutils/writers/__init__.py:

  - Added assemble_parts method to the Writer class to allow for
    access to a documents individual parts.
  - Documented & set default for ``Writer.output`` attribute.

* docutils/writers/html4css1.py:

  - Fixed unicode handling of attribute values (bug 760673).
  - Prevent duplication of "class" attribute values (bug report from
    Kirill Lapshin).

    Marshall).
  - Added support for table titles.
  - Added "<title />" for untitled docs, for XHTML conformance; thanks
    to Darek Suchojad.
  - Added functionality to keep track of individual parts of a document
    and store them in a dictionary as the "parts" attribute of the writer.
    Contributed by Reggie Dugard at the Docutils sprint at PyCon DC 2004.
  - Added proper support for the "scale" attribute of the "image"
    element.  Contributed by Brent Cook.
  - Added ``--initial-header-level`` option.
  - Fixed bug: the body_pre_docinfo segment depended on there being a
    docinfo; if no docinfo, the document title was incorporated into
    the body segment.  Adversely affected the publish_parts interface.

* docutils/writers/latex2e.py:

  - Changed default stylesheet to "no stylesheet" to avoid latex complaining
    about a missing file.
  - Added options and support: ``--compound-enumerators``,
    ``--section-prefix-for-enumerators``, and
    ``--section-enumerator-separator``.  By John F Meinel Jr (SF patch
    934322).
  - Added option ``--use-verbatim-when-possible``, to avoid
    problematic characters (eg, '~' in italian) in literal blocks.
  - It's now possible to use four section levels in the `book` and
    `report` LaTeX classes.  The default `article` class still has
    three levels limit.

    files.
  - Added test/test_writers/test_htmlfragment.py.

* test/DocutilsTestSupport.py:

  - Refactored LaTeX publisher test suite/case class names to make
    testing other writers easier.
  - Added HtmlWriterPublishTestCase and HtmlFragmentTestSuite classes
    to test the processing of HTML fragments which use the new
    publish_parts convenience function.

* tools/buildhtml.py:

  - Added support for the "--prune" option.
  - Removed dependency on pep2html.py; plaintext PEPs no longer
    supported.

* tools/docutils.conf:

  - Updated for configuration file reorganization.

Release 0.2 (2002-07-31)
========================

General:

- The word "component" was being used ambiguously.  From now on,
  "component" will be used to mean "Docutils component", as in Reader,
  Writer, Parser, or Transform.  Portions of documents (Table of
  Contents, sections, etc.)  will be called "document parts".
- Did a grand renaming: a lot of ``verylongnames`` became
  ``very_long_names``.
- Cleaned up imports: no more relative package imports or
  comma-separated lists of top-level modules.
- Added support for an option values object which carries default
  settings and overrides (from command-line options and library use).
- Added internal Unicode support, and support for both input and
  output encodings.
- Added support for the ``docutils.io.IO`` class & subclasses.

Specific:

* docutils/__init__.py:

  - Added ``ApplicationError`` and ``DataError``, for use throughout
    the package.
  - Added ``Component`` base class for Docutils components; implements
    the ``supports`` method.
  - Added ``__version__`` (thus, ``docutils.__version__``).

* docutils/core.py:

  - Removed many keyword parameters to ``Publisher.__init__()`` and
    ``publish()``; bundled into an option values object.  Added
    "argv", "usage", "description", and "option_spec" parameters for
    command-line support.
  - Added ``Publisher.process_command_line()`` and ``.set_options()``
    methods.
  - Reworked I/O model for ``docutils.io`` wrappers.
  - Updated ``Publisher.set_options()``; now returns option values
    object.
  - Added support for configuration files (/etc/docutils.conf,
    ./docutils.conf, ~/.docutils).
  - Added ``Publisher.setup_option_parser()``.
  - Added default usage message and description.

* docutils/frontend.py: Added to project; support for front-end
  (command-line) scripts.  Option specifications may be augmented by
  components.  Requires Optik (http://optik.sf.net/) for option
  processing (installed locally as docutils/optik.py).

  package, with added option groups and other modifications.  The use
  of this module is probably only temporary.

* docutils/statemachine.py:

  - Added ``runtime_init`` method to ``StateMachine`` and ``State``.
  - Added underscores to improve many awkward names.
