Release 0.9.1 (2012-06-17)
==========================

* setup.py

  - Fix [ 3527842 ]. Under Python 3, converted tests and tools were
    installed in the PYTHONPATH. Converted tests are now
    stored in ``test3/``, tools no longer need conversion.

    If you installed one of Docutils versions 0.7 ... 0.9 with
    ``setup.py install`` under Python 3, remove the spurious
    ``test/`` and ``tools/`` directories in the site library root.

* test/

  - Make tests independent from the location of the ``test/`` directory.
  - Use converted sources (from the ``build/`` directory) for tests under
    Python 3.

* tools/

  - Make tools compatible with both, Python 2 and 3 without 2to3-conversion.

* docutils/io.py

  - Fix writing binary data to sys.stdout under Python 3 (allows
    ``rst2odt.py`` to be used with output redirection).

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

  - Fix [ 3525847 ]. Catch and report UnicodeEncodeError with
    ``locale == C`` and 8-bit char in path argument of `include` directive.

* test/alltests.py

  - class `Tee`: catch UnicodeError when writing to "ascii" stream or
    file under Python 3.

Release 0.9 (2012-05-02)
========================

* General:

  - New reStructuredText "code" role and directive and "code" option
    of the "include" directive with syntax highlighting by Pygments_.
  - Fix parse_option_marker for option arguments containing ``=``.
  - Fix [ 2993756 ]: import Python Imaging Library's Image module
    via ``import PIL`` as starting with PIL 1.2,
    "PIL lives in the PIL namespace only" (announcement__).

.. _Pygments: http://pygments.org/
__ http://mail.python.org/pipermail/image-sig/2011-January/006650.html

* setup.py

  - Fix [ 2971827 ] and [ 3442827 ]
    extras/roman.py moved to docutils/utils/roman.py

* docutils/frontend.py

  - Fix [ 3481980 ] Use os.getcwdu() in make_paths_absolute().

* docutils/io.py

  - Fix [ 3395948 ] (Work around encoding problems in Py3k).
  - `mode` argument for FileOutput avoids code replication in
    BinaryFileOutput.
  - New exceptions InputError and OutputError for IO errors in
    FileInput/FileOutput.

* docutils/core.py:

  - No "hard" system exit on file IO errors: catch and report them in
    `Publisher.reportException` instead. Allows handling by a calling
    application if the configuration setting `traceback` is True.

* docutils/utils.py -> docutils/utils/__init__.py

  - docutils.utils is now a package (providing a place for sub-modules)

  .. note:: docutils/math, docutils/error_reporting.py, and
     docutils/urischemes.py will move to the utils package in the next
     release, too. See RELEASE-NOTES__

     __ RELEASE-NOTES.html

  - DependencyList uses io.FileOutput and 'utf8' encoding to prevent
    errors recording non-ASCII filenames (fixes [ 3434355 ]).

  - Fix relative_path() with source=None and `unicode` target.

* docutils/parsers/rst/states.py

  - Fix [ 3402314 ] allow non-ASCII whitespace, punctuation
    characters and "international" quotes around inline markup.
  - Use `field_marker` pattern to look for start of a
    directive option block (fixes [ 3484857 ]).

* docutils/parsers/rst/tableparser.py

  - Fix [ 2926161 ] for simple tables.
    (Combining chars in grid tables still contribute to cell width.)

  - Support the `abbreviation` and `acronym` standard roles.
  - Record only files required to generate the LaTeX source as dependencies.
  - Fix handling of missing stylesheets.

* docutils/writers/html4css1/__init__.py

  - Change default for `math-output` setting to MathJax.
  - Fix handling of missing stylesheets.

* docutils/writers/docutils_xml.py

  - Use the visitor pattern with default_visit()/default_depart() methods
    instead of minidom to facilitate special handling of selected nodes.
  - Support raw XML (inserted as-is inside a <raw></raw> node).

* docutils/writers/manpage.py

  - Do not emit comment line with trailing blank. Problematic for VCS.

Release 0.8.1 (2011-08-30)
==========================

* General:

  - Fix [ 3364658 ] (Change last file with Apache license to BSD-2-Clause)
    and [ 3395920 ] (correct copyright info for rst.el).

* test/

  -  Apply [ 3303733 ] and [ 3365041 ] to fix tests under Py3k.

    warn and fall back to English.
  - Math support: reStructuredText "math" role and directive,
    ``math`` and ``math_block`` doctree elements.
  - Decode command line arguments with the locale's preferred encoding
    (to allow, e.g., ``--title=Dornröschen``).
  - Orphaned "python" reader and "newlatex2e" writer moved to the sandbox.
  - New sub-module `error_reporting`: handle encoding/decoding errors
    when reporting exceptions.

    line-quotes with class argument "language-<language tag>".
  - Fix [ 3095603 ] wrong quotes output for russian and other languages.
  - Convert image URI to a local file path.
  - Apply [ 3148141 ] fix multicolumn support when a colspanning cell
    has more than one paragraph (Wolfgang Scherer).

  - do not advance table counter for tables without caption

* docutils/writers/xetex/__init__.py

  - New writer generating LaTeX code for compiling with ``xelatex``.

  - Fix [ 1830389 ] Replace not breaking on getting system_messages from
    nested_parse

* docutils/io.py:

    separated list of stylesheets.
  - Address [ 1938891 ] Inline literal text creates "pre" span only when
    needed to prevent inter-word line wraps.
  - Use `translate` method instead of repeated `replace` calls.
  - Fix [ 1757105 ] New ``table-style`` option. Added to standard table
    classes to allow CSS styling that does not interfere with other
    table-using constructs (field lists, citations, ...).

* docutils/writers/newlatex2e/__init__.py:

  - Apply [ 1612821 ] Double quotes in literal text in Italian/German

  - LaTeX packages can be used as ``--stylesheet`` arguments without
    restriction. (A style sheet is now referenced with the ``\usepackage``
    command, if it ends with ``.sty`` or has no extension.)
  - Add ``bp`` to lenghts without unit (prevents LaTex errors).
  - Correctly write length unit ``pt`` as ``bp`` in LaTeX.
  - Do not convert ``px`` to ``pt`` (``px`` is supported by pdfTeX since
    2005-02-04 as a configurable length unit).
  - Do not use fontenc, nor the obsolete 'ae' and 'aeguill' packages
    if font-encoding is set to ''. LaTeX defaults to OT1 then.
  - Set sub- and superscript role argument in text mode not as math.
    Use a custom role based on sub-/superscript if you want italic shape.
  - Shorter preamble and less dependencies: Load packages and define macros
    only if required in the document.
  - Use the name prefix ``DU`` for all Docutils specific LaTeX macros.
  - New custom environments and commands with optional "classes" argument.
  - Simpler LaTeX encoding, e.g. "\%" instead of "{\%}".
  - Better conformance to Docutils specifications with ``--use-latex-toc``.
    Support for LaTeX generated ToC also with unnumbered sections.
  - If 'sectnum_xform' is False, the 'sectnum' directive triggers
    section numbering by LaTeX.
  - Use default font in admonitions and sidebar.
  - Align of image in a figure defaults to 'center'.
  - Bugfix: Newlines around targets and references prevent run-together
    paragraphs.
  - Fix internal hyperlinks.
  - Use class defaults for page margins ('typearea' now optional).
  - Float placement made configurable, default changed to "here definitely".
  - Typeset generic topic as "quote block with title".
  - Use template (file and configuration option).
  - In the default template, load cmap.sty (fix text extraction in PDF) and
    fixltx2e.sty (LaTeX patches, \textsubscript).
  - Render doctest blocks as literal blocks (fixes [ 1586058 ]).
  - Use `translate` instead of repeated `replace` calls for text encoding.
  - Hyperlinked footnotes and support for symbol footnotes and
    ``--footnote-references=brackets`` with ``--use-latex-footnotes``.
  - Complete pairs of binary options
    (``--figure-footnotes, --figure-citations, --link-stylesheet``,
    ``--use-docutils-toc, --use-docutils-docinfo, --topic-abstract``)
  - New defaults:
    - font-encoding: "T1" (formerly implicitely set by 'ae').
    - use-latex-toc: true (ToC with page numbers).
    - use-latex-footnotes: true (no mixup with figures).

* docutils/writers/manpage.py

  - Do not print version at document end, this is done by the viewer.
  - Do not print date at document end, this is done by the viewer.

Release 0.3.5 (2004-07-29)
==========================

General:

* _`Documentation cleanup/reorganization`.

  - Created new subdirectories of docs/:

    * ``docs/user/``: introductory/tutorial material for end-users
    * ``docs/dev/``: for core-developers (development notes, plans, etc.)
    * ``docs/api/``: API reference material for client-developers
    * ``docs/ref/``: reference material for all groups
    * ``docs/howto/``: for component-developers and core-developers
    * ``docs/peps/``: Python Enhancement Proposals

  - Moved ``docs/*`` to ``docs/user/``.
  - Moved ``pysource.dtd``, ``pysource.txt``, ``semantics.txt`` from
    ``spec/`` to ``docs/dev``.
  - Moved ``doctree.txt``, ``docutils.dtd``, ``soextblx.dtd``,
    ``transforms.txt`` from ``spec/`` to ``docs/ref/``.
  - Moved ``alternatives.txt``, and ``problems.txt`` from
    ``spec/rst/`` to ``docs/dev/rst/``.
  - Moved ``reStructuredText.txt``, ``directives.txt``,
    ``interpreted.txt``, and ``introduction.txt`` from ``spec/rst/``
    to ``docs/ref/rst/``.  Renamed ``interpreted.txt`` to
    ``roles.txt``, ``reStructuredText.txt`` to
    ``restructuredtext.txt``.
  - Moved ``spec/howto/`` to ``docs/howto``.

  In order to keep the CVS history of moved files, we supplied
  SourceForge with a `script for modifying the Docutils CVS
  repository`__.

  __ http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/docutils/sandbox/davidg/infrastructure/cvs-reorg.sh?content-type=text/plain&rev=1.5

  After running the cleanup script:

  - Added ``docs/index.txt``.
  - Added a ``.htaccess`` file to the ``web`` module, containing
    redirects for all old paths to new paths.  They'll preserve
    fragments (the "#name" part of a URL), and won't clutter up the
    file system, and will correct the URL in the user's browser.
  - Added ``BUGS.txt``, ``docs/dev/policies.txt``,
    ``docs/dev/website.txt``, ``docs/dev/release.txt`` from all but
    the "To Do" list itself in ``docs/dev/todo.txt``.
  - Moved "Future Plans" from ``HISTORY.txt`` to new "Priorities"
    section of ``docs/dev/todo.txt``.
  - Added ``THANKS.txt`` from "Acknowledgements" in ``HISTORY.txt``.
  - Added "How To Report Bugs" to ``BUGS.txt``.
  - Went through all the sources and docs (including under web/) and
    updated links.  Mostly done by Lea Wiemann; thanks Lea!

    publish_parts, into new publish_programmatically.  Extracted
    settings code to ``Publisher.process_programmatic_settings``.
  - In Publisher.publish, disabled ``settings_overrides`` when
    ``settings`` is supplied; redundant.

  - Added name attribute to references containing the reference name only
    through whitespace_normalize_name (no case changes).
  - parse_target no longer returns the refname after going through

    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/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).
  - Improved table grid/border handling (prompted by report from Bob
    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.

* tools/rst2html.py:

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).

* docutils/io.py: Added to project; uniform API for a variety of input
  output mechanisms.

* docutils/nodes.py:

  - Added ``TreeCopyVisitor`` class.
  - Added a ``copy`` method to ``Node`` and subclasses.

  - Moved ``utils.id()`` to ``nodes.make_id()`` to avoid circular
    imports.
  - Added ``decoration``, ``header``, and ``footer`` node classes, and
    ``PreDecorative`` mixin.
  - Reworked the name/id bookkeeping; to ``document``, removed
    ``explicit_targets`` and ``implicit_targets`` attributes, added
    ``nametypes`` attribute and ``set_name_id_map`` method.
  - Added ``NodeFound`` exception, for use with ``NodeVisitor``
    traversals.
  - Added ``document.has_name()`` method.
  - Fixed DOM generation for list-attributes.
  - Added category class ``Labeled`` (used by footnotes & citations).
  - Added ``Element.set_class()`` method (sets "class" attribute).

* docutils/optik.py: Added to project.  Combined from the Optik
  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.
  - In ``string2lines()``, changed whitespace normalizing translation
    table to regexp; restores Python 2.0 compatibility with Unicode.
