  • Clarify that entities can't be used to indicate structure (#474). For example, you can't use * instead of * for a bullet list, or 
 to create a new paragraph.

  • Limit numerical entities to 6 hex or 7 decimal digits (#487). This is all that is needed given the upper bound on unicode code points.

  • Specify dropping of initial/final whitespace in setext heading content (#461).

  • Add example with a reference link definition where the reference is never used (#454).

  • Add example with setext header after reference link defs (#395).

  • Clarify that script, pre, style close tags can begin an HTML block (#517).

  • Remove meta from list of block tags in start condition #6 of HTML blocks (#527). meta tags are used in some inline contexts (though this isn't valid HTML5), e.g. in

  • Disallow newlines inside of unquoted attributes (#507, Shyouhei Urabe) as per HTML spec:

  • Remove vestigial restriction in list item spec (#543). The "not separated by more than one blank line" was a left-over from an earlier version of the spec in which two blank lines ended a list.

  • Fix tests where list items are indented 4+ spaces (#497). The tests did not accord with the spec here; these lines should be continuation lines (if no blank space) or indented code blocks (if blank space).

  • Clarify tildes and backticks in info strings (#119). We disallow backticks in info strings after backtick fences only. Both backticks and tildes are allowed in info strings after tilde fences. Add example.

  • Indicate that info string is trimmed of all whitespace (#505, Ashe Connor). As noted in github/cmark-gfm#60, the info string is not only trimmed of "spaces" (U+0020) but also of tabs.

  • Don't strip spaces in code span containing only spaces (#569). This allows one to include a code span with just spaces, using the most obvious syntax.

  • Add example w/ reference link w/ empty destination in <> (#172).

  • Disallow link destination beginning with < unless it is inside <..> (#538). This brings the description in line with the spec example:
    [foo]: (baz)

     <p>[foo]: <bar>(baz)</p>
  • Allow spaces inside link destinations in pointy brackets (#503). This reverts a change in 0.24 and should make things easier for people working with image paths containing spaces.

  • Remove redundant condition. We don't need to specify that the absolute URI in an autolink doesn't contain <, since this is specified in the description of an absolute URI.

  • Add additional spec examples involving link destinations in <> (#473).

  • Add test for [test](<url\>) (#562).

  • Disallow unescaped ( in parenthesized link titles (#526).

  • Add example showing need for space before title in reference link (#469).

  • Add codepoints for punctuation characters (#564, Christoph Päper).

  • Clarify the left- and right-flanking definitions (#534, Jay Martin).

  • Match interior delimiter runs if lengths of both are multiples of 3 (#528). This gives better results on a***b***c without giving bad results on the cases that motivated the original multiple of 3 rule.

  • Add another test case for emphasis (#509, Michael Howell).

  • Code spans: don't collapse interior space (#532).

  • Simplify revisions to code span normalization rules. Remove the complex rule about ignoring newlines adjacent to spaces. Now newlines are simply converted to spaces.

  • Replace image 'url' with 'destination' (#512, Phill).

  • Add some links for occurrences of "above" (#480).

  • Various typo fixes (#514, Kenta Sato; #533, nikolas; tnaia, #556; #551, Grahame Grieve).

  • Create .gitattributes so that changelog.txt is highlighted as markdown (#499, Christoph Päper).

  • Update GitHub links (Morten Piibeleht).

  • Update references to container and leaf block headers to use the correct pluralization (#531, Elijah Hamovitz).

  • Rephrase example #111 to indicate that the rendering is not mandated (#568).

  • Improve documentation of parsing strategy (#563). Note that openers_bottom needs to be indexed to delimiter run lengths as well as types.

  • make_spec.lua: Fix migration of children nodes in create_anchors (#536, Zhiming Wang). This resulted in some bugs in the rendered spec (where words would be dropped from links).

  • Fix dingus link when double clicking Markdown code (#535, Zhiming Wang). Prior to this commit, the link opened is always /dingus/?text= (no text).

  • Add spec.json generator to Makefile (M Pacer).
