pandoc (
* Windows installer improvements:
+ The installer is now signed with a certificate.
+ WiX is used instead of InnoSetup. The installer is now a
standard msi file.
+ The version number is now auto-detected, and need not be
updated separately.
* OSX installer improvements:
+ The package and pandoc executable are now signed with a
+ RTF version of license is used.
* Converted COPYING to markdown.
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8`: Strip off BOM if present. Closes #743.
* README: List proper default data directory for Windows 7.
* Added `--default-image-extension` and `readerDefaultImageExtension`.
This allows you to determine extensions for extensionless
image files from the command line, using different extensions
for different output formats. Currently only works for input in
markdown and LaTeX.
* Beamer template: Fixed captions with longtable. Thanks to Joost Kremers.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`: Optimized `oneOfStringsCI`.
This dramatically reduces the speed penalty that comes from enabling the
`autolink_bare_uris` extension. The penalty is still substantial (in one
test, from 0.33s to 0.44s), but nowhere near what it used to be.
The RST reader is also much faster now, as it autodetects URIs.
* HTML reader: Handle `<colgroup>` tag.
pandoc (1.10.1)
* Markdown reader: various optimizations, leading to a
significant performance boost.
* RST reader: Allow anonymous form of inline links:
`` `hello <url>`__ `` Closes #724.
* Mediawiki reader: Don't require newlines after tables.
Thanks to jrunningen for the patch. Closes #733.
* Fixed LaTeX macro parsing. Now LaTeX macro definitions are preserved
when output is LaTeX, and applied when it is another format.
Partially addresses #730.
* Markdown and RST readers: Added parser to `block` that skips blank
lines. This fixes a subtle regression involving grid tables with
empty cells. Also added test for grid table with empty cells.
Closes #732.
* RST writer: Use `.. code:: language` for code blocks with language.
Closes #721.
* DocBook writer: Fixed output for hard line breaks, adding a newline
between `<literallayout>` tags.
* Markdown writer: Use an autolink when link text matches url.
Previously we also checked for a null title, but this
test fails for links produced by citeproc-hs in bibliographies.
So, if the link has a title, it will be lost on conversion
to an autolink, but that seems okay.
* Markdown writer: Set title, author, date variables as before.
These are no longer used in the default template, since we use
titleblock, but we set them anyway for those who use custom templates.
* LaTeX writer: Avoid extra space at start/end of table cell.
Thanks to Nick Bart for the suggestion of using @{}.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`:
+ More efficient version of `anyLine`.
+ Type of `macro` has changed; the parser now returns `Blocks`
instead of `Block`.
* Relaxed old-time version bound, allowing 1.0.*.
* Removed obsolete `hsmarkdown` script. Those who need `hsmarkdown`
should create a symlink as described in the README.
pandoc (
* Markdown reader: Try `lhsCodeBlock` before `rawTeXBlock`. Otherwise
`\begin{code}...\end{code}` isn't handled properly in markdown+lhs.
Thanks to Daniel Miot for noticing the bug and suggesting the fix.
* Markdown reader: Fixed bug with headerless grid tables.
The 1.10 code assumed that each table header cell contains exactly one
block. That failed for headerless tables (0) and also for tables with
multiple blocks in a header cell. The code is fixed and tests provided.
Thanks to Andrew Lee for pointing out the bug.
* Markdown reader: Fixed regressions in fenced code blocks. Closes #722.
+ Tilde code fences can again take a bare language string
(`~~~ haskell`), not just curly-bracketed attributes
(`~~~ {.haskell}`).
+ Backtick code blocks can take the curly-bracketed attributes.
+ Backtick code blocks don't *require* a language.
+ Consolidated code for the two kinds of fenced code blocks.
* LaTeX template: Use `\urlstyle{same}` to avoid monospace URLs.
* Markdown writer: Use proportional font for email autolinks with
obfuscation. Closes #714.
* Corrected name of `blank_before_blockquote` in README. Closes #718.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`: Fixed bug in `uri` parser.
The bug prevented an autolink at the end of a string (e.g.
at the end of a line block line) from counting as a link. Closes #711.
* Use the `hsb2hs` preprocessor instead of TH for embed_data_files.
This should work on Windows, unlike the TH solution with
* Eliminated use of TH in test suite.
* Added `Text.Pandoc.Data` (non-exported) to hold the association
list of embedded data files, if the `embed_data_files` flag is selected.
This isolates the code that needs special treatment with file-embed or
* Changes to `make-windows-installer.bat`.
+ Exit batch file if any of the cabal-dev installs fail.
+ There's no longer any need to reinstall `highlighting-kate`.
+ Don't start with a `cabal update`; leave that to the user.
+ Force reinstall of pandoc.
* Fixed EPUB writer so it builds with blaze-html 0.4.x. Thanks to
Jens Petersen.
pandoc (
* Fixed bug with escaped % in LaTeX reader. Closes #710.
pandoc (
* Added further missing fb2 tests to cabal file.
pandoc (
* Added fb2 tests to cabal file's extra-source-files.
pandoc (
* Bump version bounds on test-framework packages.
pandoc (1.10)
[new features]
* New input formats: `mediawiki` (MediaWiki markup).
* New output formats: `epub3` (EPUB v3 with MathML),
`fb2` (FictionBook2 ebooks).
* New `--toc-depth` option, specifying how many levels of
headers to include in a table of contents.
* New `--epub-chapter-level` option, specifying the header
level at which to divide EPUBs into separate files.
Note that this normally affects only performance, not the
visual presentation of the EPUB in a reader.
* Removed the `--strict` option. Instead of using `--strict`,
one can now use the format name `markdown_strict` for either input
or output. This gives more fine-grained control that `--strict`
did, allowing one to convert from pandoc's markdown to strict
markdown or vice versa.
* It is now possible to enable or disable specific syntax
extensions by appending them (with `+` or `-`) to the writer
or reader name. For example,
pandoc -f markdown-footnotes+hard_line_breaks
disables footnotes and enables treating newlines as hard
line breaks. The literate Haskell extensions are now implemented
this way as well, using either `+lhs` or `+literate_haskell`.
For a list of extension names, see the README under
"Pandoc's Markdown."
* The following aliases have been introduced for specific
combinations of markdown extensions: `markdown_phpextra`,
`markdown_github`, `markdown_mmd`, `markdown_strict`. These aliases
work just like regular reader and writer names, and can be modified
with extension modifiers as described above. (Note that conversion
from one markdown dialect to another does not work perfectly,
because there are differences in markdown parsers besides
just the extensions, and because pandoc's internal document model is
not rich enough to capture all of the extensions.)
* New `--html-q-tags` option. The previous default was to use `<q>`
tags for smart quotes in HTML5. But `<q>` tags are also valid HTML4.
Moreover, they are not a robust way of typesetting quotes, since
some user agents don't support them, and some CSS resets (e.g.
bootstrap) prevent pandoc's quotes CSS from working properly.
We now just insert literal quote characters by default in both
`html` and `html5` output, but this option is provided for
those who still want `<q>` tags.
* The markdown reader now prints warnings (to stderr) about
duplicate link and note references. Closes #375.
* Markdown syntax extensions:
+ Added pipe tables. Thanks to François Gannaz for the initial patch.
These conform to PHP Markdown Extra's pipe table syntax. A subset
of org-mode table syntax is also supported, which means that you can
use org-mode's nice table editor to create tables.
+ Added support for RST-style line blocks. These are
useful for verse and addresses.
+ Attributes can now be specified for headers, using the same
syntax as in code blocks. (However, currently only the
identifier has any effect in most writers.) For example,
# My header {#foo}
See [the header above](#foo).
+ Pandoc will now act as if link references have been defined
for all headers without explicit identifiers.
So, you can do this:
# My header
Link to [My header].
Another link to [it][My header].
Closes #691.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Command macros now work everywhere, including non-math.
Environment macros still not supported.
+ `\input` now works, as well as `\include`. TEXINPUTS is used.
Pandoc looks recursively into included files for more included files.
[behavior changes]
* The Markdown reader no longer puts the text of autolinks in a
`Code` inline. This means that autolinks will no longer appear
in a monospace font.
* The character `/` can now appear in markdown citation keys.
* HTML blocks in strict_markdown are no longer required to begin
at the left margin. Technically this is required, according to
the markdown syntax document, but `` and other markdown
processors are more liberal.
* The `-V` option has been changed so that if there are duplicate
variables, those specified later on the command line take precedence.
* Tight lists now work in LaTeX and ConTeXt output.
* The LaTeX writer no longer relien on the `enumerate` package.
Instead, it uses standard LaTeX commands to change the list numbering
* The LaTeX writer now uses `longtable` instead of `ctable`. This allows
tables to be split over page boundaries.
* The RST writer now uses a line block to render paragraphs containing
linebreaks (which previously weren't supported at all).
* The markdown writer now applies the `--id-prefix` to footnote IDs.
Closes #614.
* The plain writer no longer uses backslash-escaped line breaks
(which are not very "plain").
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8`: Better error message for invalid UTF8.
Read bytestring and use `Text`'s decodeUtf8 instead of using
`System.IO.hGetContents`. This way you get a message saying
"invalid UTF-8 stream" instead of "invalid byte sequence."
You are also told which byte caused the problem.
* Docx, ODT, and EPUB writers now download images specified by a URL
instead of skipping them or raising an error.
* EPUB writer:
+ The default CSS now left-aligns headers by default, instead of
centering. This is more consistent with the rest of the writers.
+ A proper multi-level table of contents is now used in `toc.ncx`.
There is no longer a subsidiary table of contents at the beginning
of each chapter.
+ Code highlighting now works by default.
+ Section divs are used by default for better semantic markup.
+ The title is used instead of "Title Page" in the table of contents.
Otherwise we have a hard-coded English string, which looks
strange in ebooks written in other languages. Closes #572.
* HTML writer:
+ Put mathjax in span with class "math". Closes #562.
+ Put citations in a span with class "citation." In HTML5, also include
a `data-cite` attribute with a space-separated list of citation
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8`: use universalNewlineMode in reading.
This treats both `\r\n` and `\n` as `\n` on input, no matter
what platform we're running on.
* Citation processing is now done in the Markdown and LaTeX
readers, not in `pandoc.hs`. This makes it easier for library users
to use citations.
[template changes]
* HTML: Added css to template to preserve spaces in `<code>` tags.
Thanks to Dirk Laurie.
* Beamer: Remove English-centric strings in section pages.
Section pages used to have "Section" and a number as well as the
section title. Now they just have the title. Similarly for part
and subsection. Closes #566.
* LaTeX, ConTeXt: Added papersize variable.
* LaTeX, Beamer templates: Use longtable instead of ctable.
* LaTeX, Beamer templates: Don't require 'float' package for tables.
We don't actually seem to use the '[H]' option.
* LaTeX: Use `upquote` package if it is available. This fixes
straight quotes in verbatim environments.
* Markdown, plain: Fixed titleblock so it is just a single string.
Previously separate title, author, and date variables were used,
but this didn't allow different kinds of title blocks.
+ Rationalized templates. Previously there were three different
templates involved in epub production. There is now just one
template, `default.epub` or `default.epub3`. It can now be
overridden using `--template`, just like other templates.
The titlepage is now folded into the default template.
A `titlepage` variable selects it.
+ UTF-8, lang tag, meta tags, title element.
* Added scale-to-width feature to beamer template
[API changes]
* `Text.Pandoc.Definition`: Added `Attr` field to `Header`.
Previously header identifers were autogenerated by the writers.
Now they are added in the readers (either automatically or explicitly).
* `Text.Pandoc.Builder`:
+ `Inlines` and `Blocks` are now synonyms for `Many Inline` and
`Many Block`. `Many` is a newtype wrapper around `Seq`, with
custom Monoid instances for `Many Inline` and `Many Block. This
allows `Many` to be made an instance of `Foldable` and `Traversable`.
+ The old `Listable` class has been removed.
+ The module now exports `isNull`, `toList`, `fromList`.
+ The old `Read` and `Show` instances have been removed; derived
instances are now used.
+ Added `headerWith`.
* The readers now take a `ReaderOptions` rather than a `ParserState`
as a parameter. Indeed, not all parsers use the `ParserState` type;
some have a custom state. The motivation for this change was to separate
user-specifiable options from the accounting functions of parser state.
* New module `Text.Pandoc.Options`. This includes the `WriterOptions`
formerly in `Text.Pandoc.Shared`, and its associated
data types. It also includes a new type `ReaderOptions`, which
contains many options formerly in `ParserState`, and its associated
data types:
+ `ParserState.stateParseRaw` -> `ReaderOptions.readerParseRaw`.
+ `ParserState.stateColumns` -> `ReaderOptions.readerColumns`.
+ `ParserState.stateTabStop` -> `ReaderOptions.readerTabStop`.
+ `ParserState.stateOldDashes` -> `ReaderOptions.readerOldDashes`.
+ `ParserState.stateLiterateHaskell` -> `ReaderOptions.readerLiterateHaskell`.
+ `ParserState.stateCitations` -> `ReaderOptions.readerReferences`.
+ `ParserState.stateApplyMacros` -> `ReaderOptions.readerApplyMacros`.
+ `ParserState.stateIndentedCodeClasses` ->
+ Added `ReaderOptions.readerCitationStyle`.
* `WriterOptions` now includes `writerEpubVersion`, `writerEpubChapterLevel`,
`writerEpubStylesheet`, `writerEpubFonts`, `writerReferenceODT`,
`writerReferenceDocx`, and `writerTOCDepth`. `writerEPUBMetadata` has
been renamed `writerEpubMetadata` for consistency.
* Changed signatures of `writeODT`, `writeDocx`, `writeEPUB`, since they no
longer stylesheet, fonts, reference files as separate parameters.
* Removed `writerLiterateHaskell` from `WriterOptions`, and
`readerLiterateHaskell` from `ReaderOptions`. LHS is now handled
by an extension (`Ext_literate_haskell`).
* Removed deprecated `writerXeTeX`.
* Removed `writerStrict` from `WriterOptions`. Added `writerExtensions`.
Strict is now handled through extensions.
* `Text.Pandoc.Options` exports `pandocExtensions`, `strictExtensions`,
`phpMarkdownExtraExtensions`, `githubMarkdownExtensions`,
and `multimarkdownExtensions`, as well as the `Extensions` type.
* New `Text.Pandoc.Readers.MediaWiki` module, exporting
* New `Text.Pandoc.Writers.FB2` module, exporting `writeFB2`
(thanks to Sergey Astanin).
* `Text.Pandoc`:
+ Added `getReader`, `getWriter` to `Text.Pandoc`.
+ `writers` is now an association list `(String, Writer)`.
A `Writer` can be a `PureStringWriter`, an `IOStringWriter`, or
an `IOByteStringWriter`. ALL writers are now in the 'writers'
list, including the binary writers and FB2 writer. This allows
code in `pandoc.hs` to be simplified.
+ Changed type of `readers`, so all readers are in IO.
Users who want pure readers can still get them form the reader
modules; this just affects the function `getReader` that looks up
a reader based on the format name. The point of this change is to
make it possible to print warnings from the parser.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`:
+ `Text.Parsec` now exports all Parsec functions used in pandoc code.
No other module directly imports Parsec. This will make it easier
to change the parsing backend in the future, if we want to.
+ `Text.Parsec` is used instead of `Text.ParserCombinators.Parsec`.
+ Export the type synonym `Parser`.
+ Export `widthsFromIndices`, `NoteTable'`, `KeyTable'`, `Key'`, `toKey'`,
`withQuoteContext`, `singleQuoteStart`, `singleQuoteEnd`,
`doubleQuoteStart`, `doubleQuoteEnd`, `ellipses`, `apostrophe`,
`dash`, `nested`, `F(..)`, `askF`, `asksF`, `runF`, `lineBlockLines`.
+ `ParserState` is no longer an instance of `Show`.
+ Added `stateSubstitutions` and `stateWarnings` to `ParserState`.
+ Generalized type of `withQuoteContext`.
+ Added `guardEnabled`, `guardDisabled`, `getOption`.
+ Removed `failIfStrict`.
+ `lookupKeySrc` and `fromKey` are no longer exported.
* `Data.Default` instances are now provided for `ReaderOptions`,
`WriterOptions`, and `ParserState`. `Text.Pandoc` re-exports `def`.
Now you can use `def` (which is re-exported by `Text.Pandoc`) instead
of `defaultWriterOptions` (which is still defined). Closes #546.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`:
+ Added `safeRead`.
+ Renamed `removedLeadingTrailingSpace` to `trim`,
`removeLeadingSpace` to `triml`, and `removeTrailingSpace` to `trimr`.
+ Count `\r` as space in `trim` functions.
+ Moved `renderTags'` from HTML reader and `Text.Pandoc.SelfContained`
to `Shared`.
+ Removed `failUnlessLHS`.
+ Export `compactify'`, formerly in Markdown reader.
+ Export `isTightList`.
+ Do not export `findDataFile`.
+ `readDataFile` now returns a strict ByteString.
+ Export `readDataFileUTF8` which returns a String, like the
old `readDataFile`.
+ Export `fetchItem` and `openURL`.
* `Text.Pandoc.ImageSize`: Use strict, not lazy bytestrings.
Removed `readImageSize`.
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8`: Export `encodePath`, `decodePath`,
`decodeArg`, `toString`, `fromString`, `toStringLazy`,
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8` is now an exposed module.
* `Text.Pandoc.Biblio`:
+ csl parameter now a `String` rather than a `FilePath`.
+ Changed type of `processBiblio`. It is no longer in the IO monad.
It now takes a `Maybe Style` argument rather than parameters for CSL
and abbrev filenames. (`pandoc.hs` now calls the functions to parse
the style file and add abbreviations.)
* Markdown reader now exports `readMarkdownWithWarnings`.
* `Text.Pandoc.RTF` now exports `writeRTFWithEmbeddedImages` instead of
[bug fixes]
* Make `--ascii` work properly with `--self-contained`. Closes #568.
* Markdown reader:
+ Fixed link parser to avoid exponential slowdowns. Closes #620.
Previously the parser would hang on input like this:
We fixed this by making the link parser parser characters
between balanced brackets (skipping brackets in inline code spans),
then parsing the result as an inline list. One change is that
[hi *there]* bud](/url)
is now no longer parsed as a link. But in this respect pandoc behaved
differently from most other implementations anyway, so that seems okay.
+ Look for raw html/latex blocks before tables.
Otherwise the following gets parsed as a table:
-- My comment.
Closes #578.
* RST reader:
+ Added support for `:target:` on `.. image::` blocks
and substitutions.
+ Field list fixes:
- Fixed field lists items with body beginning after a new line
(Denis Laxalde).
- Allow any char but ':' in names of field lists in RST reader
(Denis Laxalde).
- Don't allow line breaks in field names.
- Require whitespace after field list field names.
- Don't create empty definition list for metadata field lists.
Previously a field list consisting only of metadata fields (author,
title, date) would be parsed as an empty DefinitionList, which is
not legal in LaTeX and not needed in any format.
+ Don't recognize inline-markup starts inside words.
For example, `2*2 = 4*1` should not contain an emphasized
section. Added test case for "Literal symbols". Closes #569.
+ Allow dashes as separator in simple tables. Closes #555.
+ Added support for `container`, `compound`, `epigraph`,
`rubric`, `highlights`, `pull-quote`.
+ Added support for `.. code::`.
+ Made directive labels case-insensitive.
+ Removed requirement that directives begin at left margin.
This was (correctly) not in earlier releases; docutils doesn't
make the requirement.
+ Added support for `replace::` and `unicode::` substitutions.
+ Ignore unknown interpreted roles.
+ Renamed image parser to `subst`, since it now handles all
substitution references.
* Textile reader:
+ Allow newlines before pipes in table. Closes #654.
+ Fixed bug with list items containing line breaks.
Now pandoc correctly handles hard line breaks inside list items.
Previously they broke list parsing.
+ Implemented comment blocks.
+ Fixed bug affected words ending in hyphen.
+ Properly handle links with surrounding brackets.
Square brackets need to be used when the link isn't surrounded by
spaces or punctuation, or when the URL ending may be ambiguous.
Closes #564.
+ Removed nullBlock. Better to know about parsing problems than
to skip stuff when we get stuck.
+ Allow ID attributes on headers.
+ Textile reader: Avoid parsing dashes as strikeout.
Previously the input
would be parsed with strikeouts rather than dashes. This fixes
the problem by requiring that a strikeout delimiting - not be
followed by a -. Closes #631.
+ Expanded list of `stringBreakers`.
This fixes a bug on input like "(_hello_)" which should
be a parenthesized emphasized "hello".
The new list is taken from the PHP source of textile 2.4.
+ Fixed autolinks. Previously the textile reader and writer
incorrectly implented RST-style autolinks for URLs and email
addresses. This has been fixed. Now an autolink is done this way:
+ Fixed footnotes bug in textile. This affected notes occuring
before punctuation, e.g. `foo[1].`. Closes #518.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Better handling of citation commands.
+ Better handling of `\noindent`.
+ Added a 'try' in rawLaTeXBlock, so we can handle `\begin` without `{`.
Closes #622.
+ Made `rawLaTeXInline` try to parse block commands as well. This
is usually what we want, given how `rawLaTeXInline` is used in
the markdown and textile readers. If a block-level LaTeX command
is used in the middle of a paragraph (e.g. `\subtitle` inside a title),
we can treat it as raw inline LaTeX.
+ Handle \slash command. Closes #605.
+ Basic `\enquote` support.
+ Fixed parsing of paragraphs beginning with a group. Closes #606.
+ Use curly quotes for bare straight quotes.
+ Support obeylines environment. Closes #604.
+ Guard against "begin", "end" in inlineCommand and
+ Better error messages for environments. Now it should tell you that
it was looking for \end{env}, instead of giving "unknown parse error."
* HTML reader:
+ Added HTML 5 tags to list of block-level tags.
+ HTML reader: Fixed bug in `htmlBalanced`, which
caused hangs in parsing certain markdown input using
strict mode.
+ Parse `<q>` as `Quoted DoubleQuote`.
+ Handle nested `<q>` tags properly.
+ Modified `htmlTag` for fewer false positives.
A tag must start with `<` followed by `!`,`?`, `/`, or a letter.
This makes it more useful in the wikimedia and markdown parsers.
* DocBook reader: Support title in "figure" element. Closes #650.
* MediaWiki writer:
+ Remove newline after `<br/>` in translation of `LineBreak`
There's no particular need for a newline (other than making the
generated MediaWiki source look nice to a human), and in fact
sometimes it is incorrect: in particular, inside an enumeration, list
items cannot have embedded newline characters. (Brent Yorgey)
+ Use `<code>` not `<tt>` for Code.
* Man writer: Escape `-` as `\-`.
Unescaped `-`'s become hyphens, while `\-`'s are left as ascii minus
signs. That is preferable for use with command-line options. See
<>. Thanks
to Andrea Bolognani for bringing the issue to our attention.
* RST writer:
+ Improved line block output. Use nonbreaking spaces for
initial indent (otherwise lost in HTML and LaTeX).
Allow multiple paragraphs in a single line block.
Allow soft breaks w continuations in line blocks.
+ Properly handle images with no alt text. Closes #678.
+ Fixed bug with links with duplicate text. We now (a) use anonymous
links for links with inline URLs, and (b) use an inline link instead
of a reference link if the reference link would require a label that
has already been used for a different link. Closes #511.
+ Fixed hyperlinked images. Closes #611. Use `:target:`
field when you have a simple linked image.
+ Don't add `:align: center` to figures.
* Texinfo writer: Fixed internal cross-references.
Now we insert anchors after each header, and use `@ref` instead of `@uref`
for links. Commas are now escaped as `@comma{}` only when needed;
previously all commas were escaped. (This change is needed, in part,
because `@ref` commands must be followed by a real comma or period.) Also
insert a blank line in from of `@verbatim` environments.
* DocBook writer:
+ Made --id-prefix work in DocBook as well as HTML.
Closes #607.
+ Don't include empty captions in figures. Closes #581.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Use `\hspace*` for nonbreaking space after line break,
since `~` spaces after a line break are just ignored.
Closes #687.
+ Don't escape `_` in URLs or hyperref identifiers.
+ Properly escape strings inside \url{}. Closes #576.
+ Use `[fragile]` only for slides containing code rendered
using listings. Closes #649.
+ Escape `|` as `\vert` in LaTeX math. This avoids a clash with
highlighting-kate's macros, which redefine `|` as a short verbatim
delimiter. Thanks to Björn Peemöller for raising this issue.
+ Use minipage rather than parbox for block containers in tables.
This allows verbatim code to be included in grid tables.
Closes #663.
+ Prevent paragraphs containing only linebreaks or spaces.
* HTML writer:
+ Included `highlighting-css` for code spans, too.
Previously it was only included if used in a code block. Closes #653.
+ Improved line breaks with `<dd>` tags. We now put a newline between
`</dd>` and `<dd>` when there are multiple definitions.
+ Changed mathjax cdn url so it doesn't use https. (This caused
problems when used with `--self-contained`.) See #609.
* EPUB writer:
+ `--number-sections` now works properly.
+ Don't strip meta and link elements in epub metadata.
Patch from aberrancy. Closes #589.
+ Fixed a couple validation bugs.
+ Use ch001, ch002, etc. for chapter filenames. This improves sorting
of chapters in some readers, which apparently sort ch2 after ch10.
Closes #610.
* ODT writer: properly set title property (Arlo O'Keeffe).
* Docx writer:
+ Fixed bug with nested lists. Previously a list like
1. one
- a
- b
2. two
would come out with a bullet instead of "2."
Thanks to Russell Allen for reporting the bug.
+ Use `w:cr` in `w:r` instead of `w:br` for linebreaks.
This seems to fix a problem viewing pandoc-generated
docx files in LibreOffice.
+ Use integer ids for bookmarks. Closes #626.
+ Added nsid to abstractNum elements. This helps when merging
word documents with numbered or bulleted lists. Closes #627.
+ Use separate footnotes.xml for notes.
This seems to help LibreOffice convert the file, even though
it was valid docx before. Closes #637.
+ Use rIdNN identifiers for r:embed in images.
+ Avoid reading image files again when we've already processed them.
+ Fixed typo in `referenc.docx` that prevented image captions from
working. Thanks to Huashan Chen.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`:
+ Fixed bug in `withRaw`, which didn't correctly handle the case
where nothing is parsed.
+ Made `emailAddress` parser more correct. Now it is based on RFC 822,
though it still doesn't implement quoted strings in email addresses.
+ Revised URI parser. It now allows many more schemes, allows
uppercase URIs, and better handles trailing punctuation and
trailing slashes in bare URIs. Added many tests.
+ Simplified and improved singleQuoteStart. This makes `'s'`, `'l'`,
etc. parse properly. Formerly we had some English-centric heuristics,
but they are no longer needed. Closes #698.
* `Text.Pandoc.Pretty`: Added wide punctuation range to `charWidth`.
This fixes bug with Chinese commas in markdown and reST tables, and
a bug that caused combining characters to be dropped.
* `Text.Pandoc.MIME`: Added MIME types for .wof and .eot. Closes #640.
* `Text.Pandoc.Biblio`:
+ Run `mvPunc` and `deNote` on metadata too.
This fixed a bug with notes on titles using footnote styles.
+ Fixed bug in fetching CSL files from CSL data directory.
* `pandoc.hs`: Give correct value to `writerSourceDirectory` when a URL
is provided. It should be the URL up to the path.
* Fixed/simplified diff output for tests.
Biblio: Make sure mvPunc and deNote run on metadata too.
This fixed a bug with notes on titles using footnote styles.
[under the hood improvements]
* We no longer depend on `utf8-string`. Instead we use functions
defined in `Text.Pandoc.UTF8` that use `Data.Text`'s conversions.
* Use `safeRead` instead of using `reads` directly (various modules).
* "Implicit figures" (images alone in a paragraph) are now handled
differently. The markdown reader gives their titles the prefix `fig:`; the
writers look for this before treating the image as a figure. Though this
is a bit of a hack, it has two advantages: (i) implicit figures can be
limited to the markdown reader, and (ii) they can be deactivated by turning
off the `implicit_figures` extension.
* `catch` from `Control.Exception` is now used instead of the
old Preface `catch`.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`: Improved algorithm for `normalizeSpaces`
and `oneOfStrings` (which is now non-backtracking).
* `Text.Pandoc.Biblio`: Remove workaround for `toCapital`.
Now citeproc-hs is fixed upstream, so this is no longer needed.
Closes #531.
* Textile reader: Improved speed of `hyphenedWords`.
This speeds up the textile reader by about a factor of 4.
* Use `Text.Pandoc.Builder` in RST reader, for more flexibility,
better performance, and automatic normalization.
* Major rewrite of markdown reader:
+ Use `Text.Pandoc.Builder` instead of lists. This also
means that everything is normalized automatically.
+ Move to a one-pass parsing strategy, returning values in the reader
monad, which are then run (at the end of parsing) against the final
parser state.
* In HTML writer, we now use `toHtml` instead of pre-escaping.
We work around the problem that blaze-html unnecessarily escapes `'`
by pre-escaping just the `'` characters, instead of the whole string.
If blaze-html later stops escaping `'` characters, we can simplify
`strToHtml` to `toHtml`. Closes #629.
* Moved code for embedding images in RTFs from `pandoc.hs` to the
RTF writer (which now exports `writeRTFWithEmbeddedImages`).
* Moved citation processing from `pandoc.hs` into the readers.
This makes things more convenient for library users.
* The man pages are now built by an executable `make-pandoc-man-pages`,
which has its own stanza in the cabal file so that dependencies can be
handled by Cabal. Special treatment in `Setup.hs` ensures that this
executable never gets installed; it is only used to create the man pages.
* The cabal file has been modified so that the pandoc library is used
in building the pandoc executable. (This required moving `pandoc.hs`
from `src` to `.`.) This cuts compile time in half.
* `-O2` is no longer used in building pandoc. The performance improvement
it yields is so slight that it is not worth it. (Measured with
benchmarks on ghc 7.4.)
* The `executable` and `library` flags have been removed.
* `-threaded` has been removed from ghc-options.
* Version bounds of dependencies have been raised, and the
`blaze_html_0_5` flag now defaults to True. Pandoc now compiles on
GHC 7.6.
* We now require base >= 4.2.
* Integrated the benchmark program into cabal. One can now do:
cabal configure --enable-benchmarks && cabal build
cabal bench --benchmark-option='markdown' --benchmark-option='-s 20'
The benchmark now uses README + testsuite, so benchmark results
from older versions aren't comparable.
* Integrated test suite with cabal.
To run tests, configure with `--enable-tests`, then `cabal test`.
You can specify particular tests using `--test-options='-t markdown'`.
No output is shown unless tests fail. The Haskell test modules
have been moved from `src/` to `tests/`.
* Moved all data files and templates to the `data/` subdirectory.
* Added an `embed_data_files` cabal flag. This causes all
data files to be embedded in the binary, so that the binary
is self-sufficient and can be relocated anywhere, copied on
a USB key, etc. The Windows installer now uses this.
(Since we no longer have the option to build the executable
without the library, this is the only way to get a relocatable
binary on Windows.)
* Removed pcre3.dll from windows package.
It isn't needed unless highlighting-kate is compilled with the
`pcre-light` flag. By default, regex-prce-builtin is used.
pandoc (
* Don't encode/decode file paths if base >= 4.4.
Prior to base 4.4, filepaths and command line arguments were treated
as unencoded lists of bytes, not unicode strings, so we had to work
around that by encoding and decoding them. This commit adds CPP
checks for the base version that intelligibly enable encoding/decoding
when needed. Fixes a bug with multilingual filenames when pandoc was
compiled with ghc 7.4 (#540).
* Don't generate an empty H1 after hrule slide breaks.
We now use a slide-level header with contents `[Str "\0"]` to mark
an hrule break. This avoids creation of an empty H1 in these
contexts. Closes #484.
* Docbook reader: Added support for "bold" emphasis. Thanks to mb21.
* In, ensure citeproc-hs is built with the
embed_data_files flag.
* MediaWiki writer: Avoid extra blank lines after sublists (Gavin Beatty).
* ConTeXt writer: Don't escape `&`, `^`, `<`, `>`, `_`,
simplified escapes for `}` and `{` to `\{` and `\}` (Aditya Mahajan).
* Fixed handling of absolute URLs in CSS imports with `--self-contained`.
Closes #535.
* Added webm to mime types. Closes #543.
* Added some missing exports and tests to the cabal file
(Alexander V Vershilov).
* Compile with `-rtsopts` and `-threaded` by default.
pandoc (
* Markdown reader: Added `cf.` and `cp.` to list of likely abbreviations.
* LaTeX template: Added `linkcolor`, `urlcolor` and `links-as-notes`
variables. Make TOC links black.
* LaTeX template improvements.
+ Don't print date unless one is given explicitly in the document.
+ Simplified templates.
+ Use fontenc [T1] by default, and lmodern.
+ Use microtype if available.
* Biblio:
+ Add comma to beginning of bare suffix, e.g. `@item1 [50]`.
Motivation: `@item1 [50]` should be as close as possible to
`[@item1, 50]`.
+ Added workaround for a bug in citeproc-hs 0.3.4 that causes footnotes
beginning with a citation to be empty. Closes #531.
* Fixed documentation on mixed lists. Closes #533.
pandoc (1.9.4)
* Simplified `Text.Pandoc.Biblio` and fixed bugs with citations inside
footnotes and captions. We now handle note citations by inserting
footnotes during initial citation processing, and doing a separate
pass later to remove notes inside notes.
* Added 'zenburn' highlight style from highlighting-kate.
* Added Slideous writer. Slideous is an HTML + javascript slide show
format, similar to Slidy, but works with IE 7. (Jonas Smedegaard)
* LaTeX writer:
+ Ensure we don't have extra blank lines at ends of cells.
This can cause LaTeX errors, as they are interpreted as new paragraphs.
+ More consistent interblock spacing.
+ Require highlighting-kate >= 0.5.1, for proper highlighted inline
code in LaTeX. Closes #527.
+ Ensure that a Verbatim at the end of a footnote is followed by
a newline. (Fixes a regression in the previous version.)
+ In default template, use black for internal links and TOC.
Added commented-out code to use footnotes for links, as would
be suitable in print output.
* Beamer writer: When `--incremental` is used, lists inside
a block quote should appear all at once. (This makes Beamer
output consistent with the HTML slide show formats.)
* ConTeXt writer:
+ Escape `%` as `\letterpercent{}` not `\letterpercent `,
to avoid gobbling spaces after the `%` sign.
+ Ensure space after `\stopformula`.
* Markdown writer:
+ Use `:` form instead of `~` in definition lists, for better
compatibility with other markdown implementations.
+ Don't wrap the term, because it breaks definition lists.
+ Use a nonzero space to prevent false recognition
of list marker in ordered lists. Closes #516.
* Org writer: Add space before language name. Closes #523.
* Docx writer: Simplified bullet characters so they work properly
with Word 2007. Closes #520.
* LaTeX reader: Support `\centerline`.
* RST reader: handle figures. Closes #522.
* Textile reader: fix for `<notextile>` and `==`. Closes #517.
(Paul Rivier)
pandoc (1.9.3)
* Fixed bug in `fromEntities`. The previous version would turn
`hi & low you know;` into `hi &`.
* HTML reader:
+ Don't skip nonbreaking spaces.
Previously a paragraph containing just `&nbsp;` would be rendered
as an empty paragraph. Thanks to Paul Vorbach for pointing out the bug.
+ Support `<col>` and `<caption>` in tables. Closes #486.
* Markdown reader:
+ Don't recognize references inside delimited code blocks.
+ Allow list items to begin with lists.
* Added basic docbook reader (John MacFarlane and Mauro Bieg).
* LaTeX reader:
+ Handle `\bgroup`, `\egroup`, `\begingroup`, `\endgroup`.
+ Control sequences can't be followed by a letter.
This fixes a bug where `\begingroup` was parsed as `\begin`
followed by `group`.
+ Parse 'dimension' arguments to unknown commands. e.g. `\parindent0pt`
+ Make `\label` and `\ref` sensitive to `--parse-raw`.
If `--parse-raw` is selected, these will be parsed as raw latex
inlines, rather than bracketed text.
+ Don't crash on unknown block commands (like `\vspace{10pt}`)
inside `\author`; just skip them. Closes #505.
* Textile reader:
+ Implemented literal escapes with `==` and `<notextile>`. Closes #473.
+ Added support for LaTeX blocks and inlines (Paul Rivier).
+ Better conformance to RedCloth inline parsing (Paul Rivier).
+ Parse '+text+' as emphasized (should be underlined, but this
is better than leaving literal plus characters in the output.
* Docx writer: Fixed multi-paragraph list items. Previously they each
got a list marker. Closes #457.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Added `--no-tex-ligatures` option to avoid replacing
quotation marks and dashes with TeX ligatures.
+ Use `fixltx2e` package to provide '\textsubscript'.
+ Improve spacing around LaTeX block environments:
quote, verbatim, itemize, description, enumerate.
Closes #502.
+ Use blue instead of pink for URL links in latex/pdf output.
* ConTeXt writer: Fixed escaping of `%`.
In text, `%` needs to be escaped as `\letterpercent`, not `\%`
Inside URLs, `%` needs to be escaped as `\%`
Thanks to jmarca and adityam for the fix. Closes #492.
* Texinfo writer: Escape special characters in node titles.
This fixes a problem pointed out by Joost Kremers. Pandoc used
to escape an '@' in a chapter title, but not in the corresponding
node title, leading to invalid texinfo.
* Fixed document encoding in texinfo template.
Resolves Debian Bug #667816.
* Markdown writer:
+ Don't force delimited code blocks to be flush left.
Fixes bug with delimited code blocks inside lists etc.
+ Escape `<` and `$`.
* LaTeX writer: Use `\hyperref[ident]{text}` for internal links.
Previously we used `\href{\#ident}{text}`, which didn't work on
all systems. Thanks to Dirk Laurie.
* RST writer: Don't wrap link references. Closes #487.
* Updated to use latest versions of blaze-html, mtl.
pandoc (1.9.2)
* LaTeX reader:
+ Made `lstlisting` work as a proper verbatim environment.
+ Fixed bug parsing LaTeX tables with one column.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Use `{}` around `ctable` caption, so that formatting can be used.
+ Don't require eurosym package unless document has a €.
* LaTeX template: Added variables for `geometry`, `romanfont`,
`sansfont`, `mathfont`, `mainfont` so users can more easily
customize fonts.
* PDF writer:
+ Run latex engine at least two times, to ensure
that PDFs will have hyperlinked bookmarks.
+ Added PDF metadata (title,author) in LaTeX standalone + PDF output.
* Texinfo writer: retain directories in image paths. (Peter Wang)
* RST writer: Better handling of inline formatting, in accord
with docutils' "inline markup recognition rules" (though we don't
implement the unicode rules fully). Now `hi*there*hi` gets
rendered properly as `hi\ *there*\ hi`, and unnecessary
`\ ` are avoided around `:math:`, `:sub:`, `:sup:`.
* RST reader:
+ Parse `\ ` as null, not escaped space.
+ Allow `` :math:`...` `` even when not followed by blank
or `\`. This does not implement the complex rule docutils follows,
but it should be good enough for most purposes.
+ Add support for the rST default-role directive. (Greg Maslov)
* Text.Pandoc.Parsing: Added `stateRstDefaultRole` field to `ParserState`.
(Greg Maslov)
* Markdown reader: Properly handle citations nested in other inline
* Markdown writer: don't replace empty alt in image with "image".
* DZSlides: Updated template.html and styles in default template.
Removed bizarre CSS for `q` in dzslides template.
* Avoid repeated `id` attribute in section and header in HTML slides.
* README improvements: new instructions on internal links,
removed misleading note on reST math.
* Build system:
+ Fixed Windows installer so that dzslides works.
+ Removed
+ Added .travis.yml for Travis continuous integration support..
+ Fixed upper bound for zlib (Sergei Trofimovich).
+ Fixed upper bound for test-framework.
+ Updated haddocks for haddock-2.10 (Sergei Trofimovich).
pandoc (
* Added `beamer+lhs` as output format.
* Don't escape `<` in `<style>` tags with `--self-contained`.
This fixes a bug which prevented highlighting from working
when using `--self-contained`.
* PDF: run latex engine three times if `--toc` specified.
This fixes page numbers in the table of contents.
* Docx writer: Added TableNormal style to tables.
* LaTeX math environment fixes. `aligned` is now used instead of
the nonexistent `aligned*`. `multline` instead of the nonexistent
* LaTeX writer: Use `\textasciitilde` for literal `~`.
* HTML writer: Don't escape contents of EQ tags with --gladtex.
This fixes a regression from 1.8.
* Use `<q>` tags for Quoted items for HTML5 output.
The quote style can be changed by modifying the template
or including a css file. A default quote style is included.
* LaTeX reader: Fixed accents (\~{a}, `\c{c}`).
Correctly handle \^{}. Support "minted" as a LaTeX verbatim block.
* Updated LaTeX template for better language support.
Use `polyglossia` instead of `babel` with xetex.
Set `lang` as documentclass option.
`\setmainlanguage` will use the last of a comma-separated
list of languages. Thanks to François Gannaz.
* Fixed default LaTeX template so `\euro` and `€` work. The
`eurosym` package is needed if you are using pdflatex.
* Fixed escaping of period in man writer (thanks to Michael Thompson).
* Fixed list label positions in beamer.
* Set `mainlang` variable in context writer.
This parallels behavior of latex writer. `mainlang` is the last
of a comma-separated list of languages in lang.
* EPUB language metadat: convert e.g. `en_US` from locale to `en-US`.
* Changed `-V` so that you can specify a key without a value.
Such keys get the value `true`.
* Fixed permissions on installed man pages - thanks Magnus Therning.
* Windows installer: require XP or higher. The installer is
now compiled on a Windows 7 machine, which fixes a problem
using citation functions on Windows 7.
* OSX package: Check for 64-bit Intel CPU before installing.
pandoc (
* Better handling of raw latex environments in markdown. Now
turns into a raw latex block as expected.
* Improvements to LaTeX reader:
+ Skip options after block commands.
+ Correctly handle `{\\}` in braced.
+ Added a needed 'try'.
+ Citations: add `, ` to suffix if it doesn't start with space or
punctuation. Otherwise we get no space between the year and the
suffix in author-date styles.
* Added two needed data files for S5. This fixes a problem with
`pandoc -t s5 --self-contained`. Also removed `slides.min.js`,
which was no longer being used.
* Fixed some minor problems in `reference.docx`:
name on "Date" style, `xCs` instead of `xIs`.
* Fixed a problem creating docx files using a reference docx
modified using Word. The problem seems to be that Word
modifies `_rels/.rels`, changing the Type of the Relationship to
`docProps/core.xml`. Pandoc now changes this back to the correct
value if it has been altered, fixing the problem.
* Fixed html5 template so it works properly with highlighting.
pandoc (1.9.1)
* LaTeX reader:
+ Fixed regression in 1.9; properly handle escaped $ in latex math.
+ Put LaTeX verse environments in blockquotes.
* Markdown reader:
+ Limit nesting of strong/emph. This avoids exponential lookahead
in parasitic cases, like `a**a*a**a*a**a*a**a*a**a*a**a*a**a*a**`.
+ Improved attributes syntax (inn code blocks/spans):
(1) Attributes can contain line breaks. (2) Values in key-value
attributes can be surrounded by either double or single quotes, or
left unquoted if they contain no spaces.
* Don't wrap headers in markdown or RST writers.
* Added `stateMaxNestingLevel` to `ParserState`.
We set this to 6, so you can still have `Emph` inside `Emph`,
just not indefinitely.
* More efficient implementation of `nowrap` in `Text.Pandoc.Pretty`.
* `Text.Pandoc.PDF`: Only run latex twice if `\tableofcontents`
is present.
* Require highlighting-kate >=, texmath >=
pandoc (
* Changed cabal file so that build-depends for the test program
are not required unless the tests flag is used.
* LaTeX writer: insert `{}` between adjacent hyphens so they don't
form ligatures (dashes) in code spans.
pandoc (
* Raised version bound on test-framework to avoid problems
compiling tests on GHC 7.4.1.
* LaTeX reader: Use raw LaTeX as fallback inline text for Cites,
so citations don't just disappear unless you process with
citeproc. Ignore `\bibliographystyle`, `\nocite`.
* Simplified tex2pdf; it will always run latex twice to
resolve table of contents and hyperrefs.
pandoc (
* Require Cabal >= 1.10.
* Tweaked cabal file to meet Cabal 1.10 requirements.
pandoc (
* Allow build with json 0.4 or 0.5. Otherwise we can't build with
ghc 6.12.
pandoc (1.9)
[new features]
* Added a Microsoft Word `docx` writer. The writer includes support
for highlighted code and for math (which is converted from TeX to OMML,
Office's native math markup language, using texmath's new OMML module).
A new option `--reference-docx` allows the user to customize the
* Added an `asciidoc` writer (<>).
* Better support for slide shows:
+ Added a `dzslides` writer. DZSlides is a lightweight HTML5/javascript
slide show format due to Paul Rouget (<>).
+ Added a LaTeX `beamer` writer. Beamer is a LaTeX package for creating
slide presentations.
+ New, flexible rules for dividing documents into sections and slides
(see the "Structuring the slide show" in the User's Guide). These
are backward-compatible with the old rules, but they allow slide
shows to be organized into sections and subsections containing
multiple slides.
+ A new `--slide-level` option allows users to override defaults
and select a slide level below the first header level with content.
* A new `--self-contained` option produces HTML output that does not
depend on an internet connection or the presence of any external
files. Linked images, CSS, and javascript is downloaded (or fetched
locally) and encoded in `data:` URIs. This is useful for making portable
`HTML slide shows. The --offline` option has been deprecated and is now
`treated as a synonym or --self-contained`.
* Support for PDF output:
+ Removed the old `markdown2pdf`.
+ `pandoc` can now create PDFs (assuming you have latex and a set of
appropriate packages installed): just specify an output file with the
`.pdf` extension.
+ A new option `--latex-engine` allows you to specify `pdflatex`,
`xelatex`, or `lualatex` as the processor.
* Highlighting changes:
+ Syntax highlighting is now a standard feature; the `highlighting`
flag is no longer needed when compiling.
+ A new `--no-highlight` option allows highlighting to be disabled.
+ Highlighting now works in `docx`, `latex`, and `epub`, as well as
`html`, `html5`, `dzslides`, `s5`, and `slidy`.
+ A new `--highlight-style` option selects between various highlighting
color themes.
* Internal links to sections now work in ConTeXt and LaTeX as well as HTML.
* LaTeX `\include` and `\usepackage` commands are now processed,
provided the files are in the working directory.
* EPUB improvements:
+ Internal and external links now work in EPUB.
+ Raw HTML is allowed.
+ New `--epub-embed-font` option.
+ Customizable templates for EPUB pages offer more control over
formatting: `epub-page.html`, `epub-coverimage.html`,
* `--mathml` now works with DocBook.
* Added support for math in RST reader and writer. Inline math uses the
`` :math:`...` `` construct. Display math uses
.. math:: ...
or if the math is multiline,
.. math::
These constructions are now supported now by ``.
* Github syntax for fenced code blocks is supported in pandoc's
markdown. You can now write
x = 2
instead of
~~~ {.ruby}
x = 2
* Easier scripting: a new `toJsonFilter` function makes it easier to
write Haskell scripts to manipulate the Pandoc AST.
[behavior changes]
* Fixed parsing of consecutive lists in markdown.
Pandoc previously behaved like for consecutive
lists of different styles. Thus, the following would be parsed
as a single ordered list, rather than an ordered list followed
by an unordered list:
1. one
2. two
- one
- two
This change makes pandoc behave more sensibly, parsing this as
two lists. Any change in list type (ordered/unordered) or in
list number style will trigger a new list. Thus, the following
will also be parsed as two lists:
1. one
2. two
a. one
b. two
Since we regard this as a bug in, and not something
anyone would ever rely on, we do not preserve the old behavior
even when `--strict` is selected.
* Dashes work differently with `--smart`: `---` is always em-dash,
and `--` is always en-dash. Pandoc no longer tries to guess when
`-` should be en-dash. *Note:* This may change how existing documents
look when processed with pandoc. A new option, `--old-dashes`,
is provided for legacy documents.
* The markdown writer now uses setext headers for levels 1-2.
The old behavior (ATX headers for all levels) can be restored
using the new `--atx-headers` option.
* Links are now allowed in markdown image captions. They are also
allowed in links, but will appear there as regular text. So,
[link with [link](/url)](/url)
will turn into
<p><a href="/url">link with link</a></p>
* Improved handling of citations using `citeproc-hs-0.3.4`.
Added `--citation-abbreviations` option.
* Citation keys can no longer end with a punctuation character.
This means that `@item1.` will be parsed as a citation with key
'item1', followed by a period, instead of a citation with key
'item1.', as was the case previously.
* In HTML output, citations are now put in a span with class `citation`.
* The markdown reader now recognizes DocBook block and inline tags.
It was always possible to include raw DocBook tags in a markdown
document, but now pandoc will be able to distinguish block from
inline tags and behave accordingly. Thus, for example,
will not be wrapped in `<para>` tags.
* The LaTeX parser has been completely rewritten; it is now much more
accurate, robust, and extensible. However, there are two important
changes in how it treats unknown LaTeX. (1) Previously, unknown
environments became BlockQuote elements; now, they are treated
as "transparent", so `\begin{unknown}xyz\end{unknown}` is the
same as `xyz`. (2) Previously, arguments of unknown commands
were passed through with their braces; now the braces are stripped
* `--smart` is no longer selected automatically with `man` output.
* The deprecated `--xetex` option has been removed.
* The `--html5`/`-5` option has been deprecated. Use `-t html5`
instead. `html5` and `html5+lhs` are now separate output formats.
* Single quotes are no longer escaped in HTML output. They do not
need to be escaped outside of attributes.
* Pandoc will no longer transform leading newlines in code
blocks to `<br/>` tags.
* The ODT writer now sizes images appropriately, using the image
size and DPI information embedded in the image.
* `--standalone` is once again implicitly for a non-text output format
(ODT, EPUB). You can again do `pandoc test.txt -o test.odt`
and get a standalone ODT file.
* The Docbook writer now uses `<sect1>`, `<sect2>`, etc. instead of
* The HTML writer now uses `<del>` for strikeout.
* In HTML output with `--section-divs`, the classes `section` and
`level[1,2,..6]` are put on the `div` tags so they can be styled.
In HTML 5 output with `--section-divs`, the classes
`level[1,2,...6]` are put on `section` tags.
* EPUB writer changes:
+ The `lang` variable now sets the language
in the metadata (if it is not set, we default to the locale).
+ EPUB: UTF-8 is used rather than decimal entities.
* Added `titleslide` class to title slide in S5 template.
* In HTML, EPUB, and docx metadata, the date is normalized into
YYYY-MM-DD format if possible. (This is required for validation.)
* Attributes in highlighted code blocks are now preserved in HTML.
The container element will have the classes, id, and key-value attributes
you specified in the delimited code block. Previously these were stripped
* The reference backlink in the HTML writer no longer has a special
`footnoteBacklink` class.
* The HTML template has been split into `html` and `html5` templates.
* Author and date are treated more consistently in HTML templates.
Authors are now `<h2>`, date `<h3>`.
* URLs are hyphenated in the ConTeXt writer (B. Scott Michel).
* In `Text.Pandoc.Builder`, `+++` has been replaced by `<>`.
[bug fixes]
* Better support for combining characters and East Asian wide characters
in markdown and reST.
* Better handling of single quotes with `--smart`.
Previously `D'oh l'*aide*` would be parsed with left and right single
quotes instead of apostrophes. This kind of error is now fixed.
* Highlighting: Use `reads` instead of `read` for better error handling.
Fixes crash on `startNum="abc"`.
* Added blank comment after directives in rst template.
* Unescape entities in citation `refId`. The `refId`s coming
from citeproc contain XML numeric entities, and these don't match with the
citation keys parsed by pandoc. Solution is to unescape them.
* HTML reader: Fixed bug parsing tables with both thead and tbody.
* Markdown reader:
+ Better handling of escapes in link URLs and titles.
+ Fixed backslash escapes in reference links.
+ Fixed bug in table/hrule parsing, by checking that the top
line of a table is not followed by a blank line. This bug caused
slowdowns on some files with hrules and tables, as pandoc tried to
interpret the hrules as the tops of multiline tables.
+ Fixed bug in code block attribute parser. Previously the ID attribute
got lost if it didn't come first. Now attributes can come in any order.
* RST reader: allow footnotes followed by newline without space characters.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Ignore empty groups {}, { }.
+ LaTeX reader: Handle \@.
+ LaTeX reader: Don't crash on commands like `\itemsep`.
+ LaTeX reader: Better handling of letter environments.
* RST writer: Fixed bug involving empty table cells. isSimple was being
calculated in a way that assumed there were no non-empty cells.
* ConTeXt writer:
+ Made `--toc` work even without `--number-sections`.
+ Escape # in link URLs.
+ Use buffering for footnotes containing code blocks.
+ Changed 'descr' to 'description', fixed alignment.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Escape euro character.
+ Don't escape ~ inside href{...}.
+ Escape # in href URLs.
+ Improved detection of book classes. We now check the
`documentclass` variable, and if that is not set, we look through
the template itself. Also, we have added the KOMA classes scrreprt
and scrbook. You can now make a book using
`pandoc -V documentclass:book mybook.txt -o mybook.pdf`
+ LHS files now set the "listings" variable, so that the definition
of the `code` environment will be included in the template.
+ Links are colored blue by default (this can be changed by
modifying `hyperref` settings in the template).
+ Added `lang` variable to LaTeX template.
* HTML writer:
+ Fixed bug in HTML template with html5 and mathml.
+ Don't use self-closing img, br, hr tags for HTML5.
+ Use `<section>` for footnotes if HTML5.
+ Update HTML templates to use Content-Style-Type meta tag.
+ Use separate variables for meta-date, meta-author.
This makes footnotes work in author and date fields.
+ Use 'vertical-align:middle' in WebTeX math for better alignment.
* S5/slidy writer: Make footnotes appear on separate slide at end.
* MIME: Added 'layout-cache' to getMimeType. This ensures that the
META-INF/manifest.xml for ODT files will have everything it needs, so
that ODT files modified by LibreOffice can be used as `--reference-odt`.
* `Text.Pandoc.Templates`: Return empty string for json template.
* `Text.Pandoc.Biblio`:
+ Expand citations recursively inside nested inlines.
+ Treat `\160` as space when parsing locator and suffix.
This fixes a bug with "p. 33" when `--smart` is used. Previously
the whole "p. 33" would be included in the suffix, with no locator.
+ Put whole author-in-text citation in a Cite. Previously just the
date and other info went in the Cite.
+ Don't add comma+space to prefix if it ends in punctuation.
* Updated chicago-author-date.csl. The old version did not work
properly for edited volumes with no author.
* EPUB writer:
+ Add date to EPUB titlepage and metadata.
+ Added TOC identifier in EPUB page template.
+ Don't generate superfluous file `cover-image.jpg`.
[under the hood improvements]
* Modified `` to use cabal-dev.
Items are no longer installed as root.
Man pages are zipped and given proper permissions.
* Modified windows installer generater to use cabal-dev.
* Setup: Making man pages now works with cabal-dev (at least on OSX). In
Setup.hs we now invoke 'runghc' in a way that points it to the correct
package databases, instead of always falling back to the default user
package db.
* Updated to work with GHC 7.4.1.
* Removed dependency on old-time.
* Removed dependency on dlist.
* New slidy directory for "self-contained."
* TeXMath writer: Use unicode thin spaces for thin spaces.
* Markdown citations: don't strip off initial space in locator.
[API changes]
* Removed `Apostrophe`, `EmDash`, `EnDash`, and `Ellipses`
from the native `Inline` type in pandoc-types. Now we use `Str`
elements with unicode.
* Improvements to `Text.Pandoc.Builder`:
+ `Inlines` and `Blocks` are now newtypes (not synonyms for
+ Instances are defined for `IsString`, `Show`, `Read`, `Monoid`,
and a new `Listable` class, which allows these to be manipulated
to some extent like lists. Monoid append includes automatic
+ `+++` has been replaced by `<>` (mappend).
* Use blaze-html instead of xhtml for HTML generation.
This changes the type of `writeHtml`.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`:
+ Added `warn` and `err`.
+ Removed `unescapeURI`, modified `escapeURI`.
(See under [behavior changes], above.)
* Changes in URI escaping: Previously the readers escaped URIs by
converting unicode characters to octets and then percent encoding.
Now unicode characters are left as they are, and `escapeURI` only
percent-encodes space characters. This gives more readable
URIs, and works well with modern user agents. URIs are no longer unescaped
at all on conversion to `markdown`, `asciidoc`, `rst`, `org`.
* New module `Text.Pandoc.SelfContained`.
* New module `Text.Pandoc.Docx`.
* New module `Text.Pandoc.PDF`.
* Added `writerBeamer` to `WriterOptions`.
* Added `normalizeDate` to `Text.Pandoc.Shared`.
* Added `splitStringWithIndices` in `Text.Pandoc.Shared`.
This is like `splitWithIndices`, but it is sensitive to distinctions
between wide, combining, and regular characters.
* `Text.Pandoc.Pretty`:
+ Added `chomp` combinator.
+ Added `beforeNonBreak` combinator. This allows you to include
something conditionally on it being before a nonblank.
Used for RST inline math.
+ Added `charWidth` function. All characters marked W or F in the unicode
spec EastAsianWidth.txt get width 2.
+ Added `realLength`, based on `charWidth`. `realLength` is now
used in calculating offsets.
* New module `Text.Pandoc.Slides`, for common functions for breaking
a document into slides.
* Removed `Text.Pandoc.S5`, which is no longer needed.
* Removed `Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences`. Moved
`characterReference` to `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`.
`decodeCharacterReferences` is replaced by `fromEntities`
in `Text.Pandoc.XML`.
* Added `Text.Pandoc.ImageSize`. This is intened for use
in `docx` and `odt` writers, so the size and dpi of images
can be calculated.
* Removed `writerAscii` in `WriterOptions`.
* Added `writerHighlight` to `WriterOptions`.
* Added `DZSlides` to `HTMLSlideVariant`.
* `writeEPUB` has a new argument for font files to embed.
* Added `stateLastStrPos` to `ParserState`. This lets us keep track
of whether we're parsing the position immediately after a regular
(non-space, non-symbol) string, which is useful for distinguishing
apostrophes from single quote starts.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`:
+ `escaped` now returns a `Char`.
+ Removed `charsInBalanced'`, added a character parser as
a parameter of `charsInBalanced`. This is needed for
proper handling of escapes, etc.
+ Added `withRaw`.
* Added `toEntities` to `Text.Pandoc.XML`.
* `Text.Pandoc.Readers.LaTeX`:
+ Export `handleIncludes`.
+ Export `rawLaTeXBlock` instead of `rawLaTeXEnvironment'`.
* Added `ToJsonFilter` class and `toJsonFilter` function to
`Text.Pandoc`, deprecating the old `jsonFilter` function.
* `Text.Pandoc.Highlighting`:
+ Removed `highlightHtml`, `defaultHighlightingCss`.
+ Export `formatLaTeXInline`, `formatLaTeXBlock`, and `highlight`, plus
key functions from highlighting-kate.
+ Changed types of highlighting function. `highlight` returns a
`Maybe`, not an `Either`.
pandoc (
* Relaxed cabal consntraints for test-framework (S. Trofimovich).
* Relaxed cabal constraints for pandoc-types.
* Adjusted Arbitrary instance to help avoid timeouts in tests.
* Added `Tests.Writers.Markdown` to cabal file.
pandoc (1.8.2)
* Added script to produce OS X package.
* Made `templates` directory a git submodule. This should make it
easier for people to revise their custom templates when the default
templates change.
* Changed template naming scheme: `FORMAT.template` -> `default.FORMAT`.
**Note:** If you have existing templates in `~/.pandoc/templates`, you
must rename them to conform to the new scheme!
* Fixed smart quotes bug, now handling `'...hi'` properly.
* RST reader:
+ Partial support for labeled footnotes.
+ Improved accuracy of `simpleReferenceName` parser.
* HTML reader:
+ Substitute correct unicode characters for
characters in the 128..159 range, which are often found even in
HTML that purports to be UTF-8.
* LaTeX reader: Handle `\subtitle` command (a subtitle is added
to the title, after a colon and linebreak). Closes #280.
* Leaner `reference.odt`.
* Added unexported module `Text.Pandoc.MIME` for use in
the ODT writer.
* ODT writer: Construct `manifest.xml` based on archive contents.
This fixes a bug in ODTs containing images. Recent versions of
LibreOffice would reject these as corrupt, because `manifest.xml`
did not contain a reference to the image files.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Make verbatim environments flush to avoid spurious
blank lines. Closes #277.
+ Use `\texttt` and escapes insntead of `\verb!...!`, which
is too fragile (doesn't work in command arguments).
+ Use `\enquote{}` for quotes if the template includes
the `csquotes` package. This provides better support for
local quoting styles. (Thanks to Andreas Wagner for the idea.)
* ConTeXt writer: Make `\starttyping`/`\stoptyping` flush with
margin, preventing spurious blank lines.
* Slidy writer:
+ Use non-minimized version of `slidy.css` with `--offline`
option, so users can more easily edit it.
+ Also fixed a bug in the CSS that prevented proper centering
of title (now reported and fixed upstream).
* S5 writer:
+ Replaced `s5/default/slides.js.{comment,packed}` with
new compressed `s5/default/slides.min.js`.
+ Use `data:` protocol to embed S5 CSS in `<link>` tags,
when `--offline` is specified. Using inline CSS didn't
work with Chrome or Safari. This fixes offline
S5 on those browsers.
* HTML writer: Removed English title on footnote backlinks.
This is incongrous in non-English documents.
* Docbook writer:
+ Use CALS tables. (Some older docbook software does not work
well with XHTML tables.) Closes #77.
+ Use `programlisting` tags (instead of `screen`) for code blocks.
* `markdown2pdf`:
+ Calls latex with `-halt-on-error -interaction nonstopmode` instead
of `-interaction=batchmode`, which essentially just ignored errors,
leading to bad results. Better to know when something is wrong.
+ Fixed issues with non-UTF-8 output of `pdflatex`.
+ Better error reporting.
* `--mathjax` now takes an optional URL argument. If it is not
provided, pandoc links directly to the (secure) mathjax CDN,
as now recommended (thanks to dsanson).
* Deprecated `--xetex` option in `pandoc`. It is no longer needed,
since the LaTeX writer now produces a file that can be processed by
`latex`, `pdflatex`, `lualatex`, or `xelatex`.
* Introduced `--luatex` option to `markdown2pdf`. This causes `lualatex`
to be used to create the PDF.
* If a template specified with `--template` is not found, look for it
in `datadir`. Also, if no extension is provided, supply one based
on the writer. So now you can put your `special.latex` template in
`~/.pandoc/templates`, and use it from any directory via
`pandoc -t latex --template special`.
* Default template improvements:
+ HTML: Display author and date after title.
+ HTML: Made table of contents more customizable. The container
for the TOC is now in the template, so users can insert a header
or other styling. (Thanks to Bruce D'Arcus for the suggestion.)
+ HTML, Slidy, S5: Enclose scripts in CDATA tags.
+ Slidy, S5: Added `s5-url` and `slidy-url` variables, instead of
hard-coding. If you want to put your slidy files in the slidy
subdirectory, for example, you can do
`pandoc -t slidy -V slidy-url=slidy -s`.
+ LaTeX: Use `\and` to separate authors in LaTeX documents (reader
& writer). Closes #279.
+ LaTeX: Use different `hyperref` options for `xetex`, fixing
problems with unicode bookmarks (thanks to CircleCode).
+ LaTeX: Removed `ucs` package, use `utf8` rather than `utf8x`
with `inputenc`. This covers fewer characters but is more
robust with other packages, and `ucs` is unmaintained. Users
who need better unicode support should use xelatex or lualatex.
pandoc (
* Added `--epub-cover-image` option.
* Documented `--biblatex` and `--natbib` options.
* Allow `--section-divs` with slidy output. Resolves Issue #296.
* Disallow notes within notes in reST and markdown.
These previously caused infinite looping and stack overflows.
For example:
[^1]: See [^1]
Note references are allowed in reST notes, so this isn't a full
implementation of reST. That can come later. For now we need to
prevent the stack overflows. Partially resolves Issue #297.
* EPUB writer: Allow non-plain math methods.
* Forbid ()s in citation item keys. Resolves Issue #304: problems with
`(@item1; @item2)` because the final paren was being parsed as part of
the item key.
* Changed URI parser so it doesn't include trailing punctuation.
So, in RST, `` should be parsed as a link followed by a
period. The parser is smart enough to recognize balanced parentheses, as
often occur in wikipedia links: ``.
* Markdown+lhs reader: Require space after inverse bird tracks, so that
HTML tags can be used freely at the left margin of a markdown+lhs document.
Thanks to Conal Elliot for the suggestion.
* Markdown reader:
+ Improved emph/strong parsing; fixes bug found by Perry Wagle.
+ Fixed bug in footnote order (reported by CircleCode).
* RST reader:
+ Fixed bug in in field lists with multi-line items at the
end of the list.
+ Added parentheses to RST `specialChars`, so
`(` will be parsed as a link in parens.
Resolves Issue #291.
+ Allow `|` followed by newline in RST line block.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Support `\dots`.
+ Gobble option & space after linebreak `\\[10pt]`.
* Textile reader:
+ Make it possible to have colons after links. (qerub)
+ Make it possible to have colons after links. (Christoffer Sawicki)
* HTML reader:
+ Skip spaces after `<b>`, `<emph>`, etc.
+ Handle tbody, thead in simple tables. Closes #274.
+ Implicit `Para`s instead of `Plains` in some contexts.
* OpenDocument writer: Use special `First paragraph` style for
first paragraph after most non-paragraph blocks. This allows users to
specify e.g. that only paragraphs after the first paragraph of a block are
to be indented. Thanks to Andrea Rossato for the patch. Closes #20.
* LaTeX writer: use `deVerb` on table and picture captions.
Otherwise LaTeX complains about `\verb` inside command argument.
Thanks to bbanier for reporting the bug.
* Markdown writer: Insert HTML comment btw list and indented code block.
This prevents the code block from being interpreted as part of the list.
* EPUB writer: Add a meta element specify the cover.
Some EPUB e-readers, such as the Nook, require a meta element inside the
OPF metadata block to ensure the cover image is properly displayed.
(Kelsey Hightower)
* HTML writer: Use embed tag for images with non-image extensions.
(e.g. PDFs). Closes #264.
* LaTeX writer: Improved tables.
+ More space between lines, top-align cells.
+ Use ctable package, which allows footnotes and
provides additional options.
+ Made cell alignments work in multiline tables.
+ Closes #271, #272.
* Un-URI-escape image filenames in LaTeX, ConTeXt, RTF, Texinfo.
Also do this when copying image files into EPUBs and ODTs.
Closes #263.
* Changed to github issue tracker.
* Added failing emph/strong markdown test case due to Perry Wagle.
* Slidy improvements:
+ Updated to use Slidy2.
+ Fixed bug, unclosed div tag.
+ Added `duration` variable in template.
Setting this activates the timer.
+ Use 'titlepage' instead of 'cover' for title div.
pandoc (
* `markdown2pdf`: Removed some debugging lines accidentally included
in the 1.8.1 release. With those lines, the temp directory is created
in the working directory, and it is not deleted. This fix restores
the original behavior.
pandoc (1.8.1)
* Added `--ascii` option. Currently supported only in HTML writer,
which it causes to use numerical entities instead of UTF-8.
* EPUB writer: `--toc` now works to provide a table of contents
at the beginning of each chapter.
* LaTeX writer: Change figure defaults to `htbp`.
This prevents "too many unprocessed floats." Resolves
Issue #285.
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8`: Encode filenames even when using recent
* `markdown2pdf`: Fixed filename encoding issues. With help from Paulo
Tanimoto. Resolves Issue #286.
* HTML writer: Put line breaks in section divs.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`: Make `writerSectionDivs` default to False.
pandoc (
* Fixed Source-repository stanza in cabal file.
pandoc (
* HTML writer:
+ Stringify alt text instead of converting to HTML.
+ Break lines after block elements, not inside tags.
HTML output now closely resembles that of tidy. Resolves Issue #134.
* Markdown reader: Fixed bug in footnote block parser (pointed out
by Jesse Rosenthal). The problem arose when the blank line
at the end of a footnote block contained indenting spaces.
* Shared: Improved 'normalize' function so it normalizes Spaces too.
In normal form, Space elements only occur to separate two non-Space
elements. So, we never have [Space], or [, ..., Space].
* Tests:
+ Improved Arbitrary instance.
+ Added timeout for test instances.
+ Added section on four-space rule for lists. Resolves Issue #283.
+ Clarified optional arguments on math options.
* markdown2pdf: Fixed bug with output file extensions.
Previously `markdown2pdf test.txt -o test.en.pdf` would produce
`test.pdf`, not `test.en.pdf`. Thanks to Paolo Tanimoto for the fix.
pandoc (
* Revised Interact.hs so that it works with the CPP macros
in the UTF8 module.
* Revised Setup.hs so that we don't call MakeManPage.hs unless
the man pages are out of date.
pandoc (1.8)
[new features]
* Support for citations using Andrea Rossato's `citeproc-hs` 0.3.
You can now write, for example,
Water is wet [see @doe99, pp. 33-35; also @smith04, ch. 1].
and, when you process your document using `pandoc`, specifying
a citation style using `--csl` and a bibliography using `--bibliography`,
the citation will be replaced by an appropriately formatted
citation, and a list of works cited will be added to the end
of the document.
This means that you can switch effortlessly between different citation
and bibliography styles, including footnote, numerical, and author-date
formats. The bibliography can be in any of the following formats: MODS,
BibTeX, BibLaTeX, RIS, EndNote, EndNote XML, ISI, MEDLINE, Copac, or JSON.
See the README for further details.
Citations are supported in the markdown reader, using a special
syntax, and in the LaTeX reader, using natbib or biblatex syntax.
(Thanks to Nathan Gass for the natbib and biblatex support.)
* New `textile` reader and writer. Thanks to Paul Rivier for contributing
the `textile` reader, an almost complete implementation of the textile
syntax used by the ruby [RedCloth library](
Resolves Issue #51.
* New `org` writer, for Emacs Org-mode, contributed by Puneeth Chaganti.
* New `json` reader and writer, for reading and writing a JSON
representation of the native Pandoc AST. These are much faster
than the `native` reader and writer, and should be used for
serializing Pandoc to text. To convert between the JSON representation
and native Pandoc, use `encodeJSON` and `decodeJSON` from
* A new `jsonFilter` function in `Text.Pandoc` makes it easy
to write scripts that transform a JSON-encoded pandoc document.
For example:
-- removelinks.hs - removes links from document
import Text.Pandoc
main = interact $ jsonFilter $ bottomUp removeLink
where removeLink (Link xs _) = Emph xs
removeLink x = x
To use this to remove links while translating markdown to LaTeX:
pandoc -t json | runghc removelinks.hs | pandoc -f json -t latex
* Attributes are now allowed in inline `Code` elements, for example:
In this code, `ulist ! [theclass "special"] << elts`{.haskell} is...
The attribute syntax is the same as for delimited code blocks.
`Code` inline has an extra argument place for attributes, just like
`CodeBlock`. Inline code will be highlighted in HTML output, if pandoc
is compiled with highlighting support. Resolves Issue #119.
* New `RawBlock` and `RawInline` elements (replacing `RawHtml`,
`HtmlInline`, and `TeX`) provide lots of flexibility in writing
scripts to transform Pandoc documents. Scripts can now change
how each element is rendered in each output format.
* You can now define LaTeX macros in markdown documents, and pandoc
will apply them to TeX math. For example,
\newcommand{\plus}[2]{#1 + #2}
yields `3+4`. Since the macros are applied in the reader, they
will work in every output format, not just LaTeX.
* LaTeX macros can also be used in LaTeX documents (both in math
and in non-math contexts).
* A new `--mathjax` option has been added for displaying
math in HTML using MathJax. Resolves issue #259.
* Footnotes are now supported in the RST reader. (Note, however,
that unlike docutils, pandoc ignores the numeral or symbol used in
the note; footnotes are put in an auto-numbered ordered list.)
Resolves Issue #258.
* A new `--normalize` option causes pandoc to normalize the AST
before writing the document. This means that, for example,
`*hi**there*` will be rendered as `<em>hithere</em>`
instead of `<em>hi</em><em>there</em>`. This is not the default,
because there is a significant performance penalty.
* A new `--chapters` command-line option causes headers
in DocBook, LaTeX, and ConTeXt to start with "chapter" (level one).
Resolves Issue #265.
* In DocBook output, `<chapter>` is now used for top-level
headers if the template contains `<book>`. Resolves Issue #265.
* A new `--listings` option in `pandoc` and `markdown2pdf` causes
the LaTeX writer to use the listings package for code blocks.
(Thanks to Josef Svennigsson for the pandoc patch, and Etienne
Millon for the markdown2pdf patch.)
* `markdown2pdf` now supports `--data-dir`.
* URLs in autolinks now have class "url" so they can be styled.
* Improved prettyprinting in most formats. Lines will be wrapped
more evenly and duplicate blank lines avoided.
* New `--columns` command-line option sets the column width for
line wrapping and relative width calculations for tables.
* Made `--smart` work in HTML, RST, and Textile readers, as well
as markdown.
* Added `--html5` option for HTML5 output.
* Added support for listings package in LaTeX reader
(Puneeth Chaganti).
* Added support for simple tables in the LaTeX reader.
* Added support for simple tables in the HTML reader.
* Significant performance improvements in many readers and writers.
[API and program changes]
* Moved `Text.Pandoc.Definition` from the `pandoc` package to a new
auxiliary package, `pandoc-types`. This will make it possible for other
programs to supply output in Pandoc format, without depending on the whole
pandoc package.
* Added `Attr` field to `Code`.
* Removed `RawHtml`, `HtmlInline`, and `TeX` elements; added generic
`RawBlock` and `RawInline`.
* Moved generic functions to `Text.Pandoc.Generic`. Deprecated
`processWith`, replacing it with two functions, `bottomUp` and `topDown`.
Removed previously deprecated functions `processPandoc` and `queryPandoc`.
* Added `Text.Pandoc.Builder`, for building `Pandoc` structures.
* `Text.Pandoc` now exports association lists `readers` and `writers`.
* Added `Text.Pandoc.Readers.Native`, which exports `readNative`.
`readNative` can now read full pandoc documents, block lists, blocks,
inline lists, or inlines. It will interpret `Str "hi"`
as if it were `Pandoc (Meta [] [] []) [Plain [Str "hi"]]`.
This should make testing easier.
* Removed deprecated `-C/--custom-header` option.
Use `--template` instead.
* `--biblio-file` has been replaced by `--bibliography`.
`--biblio-format` has been removed; pandoc now guesses the format
from the file extension (see README).
* pandoc will treat an argument as a URI only if it has an
`http(s)` scheme. Previously pandoc would treat some
Windows pathnames beginning with `C:/` as URIs.
* The `--sanitize-html` option and the `stateSanitize` field in
`ParserState` have been removed. Sanitization is better done in the
resulting HTML using `xss-sanitize`, which is based on pandoc's
sanitization, but improved.
* pandoc now adds a newline to the end of its output in fragment
mode (= not `--standalone`).
* Added support for `lang` in `html` tag in the HTML template,
so you can do `pandoc -s -V lang=es`, for example.
* `highlightHtml` in `Text.Pandoc.Highlighting` now takes
a boolean argument that selects between "inline" and
"block" HTML.
* `Text.Pandoc.Writers.RTF` now exports `rtfEmbedImage`.
Images are embedded in RTF output when possible (png, jpeg).
Resolves Issue #275.
* Added `Text.Pandoc.Pretty`. This is better suited for pandoc than the
`pretty` package. Changed all writers that used
`Text.PrettyPrint.HughesPJ` to use `Text.Pandoc.Pretty` instead.
* Rewrote `writeNative` using the new prettyprinting module. It is
now much faster. The output has been made more consistent and compressed.
`writeNative` is also now sensitive to writerStandalone`, and will simply
`print a block list if writerStandalone` is False.
* Removed `Text.Pandoc.Blocks`. `Text.Pandoc.Pretty` allows you to define
blocks and concatenate them, so a separate module is no longer needed.
* `Text.Pandoc.Shared`:
+ Added `writerColumns`, `writerChapters`, and `writerHtml5` to
+ Added `normalize`.
+ Removed unneeded prettyprinting functions:
`wrapped`, `wrapIfNeeded`, `wrappedTeX`, `wrapTeXIfNeeded`, `hang'`,
`BlockWrapper`, `wrappedBlocksToDoc`.
+ Made `splitBy` take a test instead of an element.
+ Added `findDataFile`, refactored `readDataFile`.
+ Added `stringify`. Rewrote `inlineListToIdentifier` using `stringify`.
+ Fixed `inlineListToIdentifier` to treat '\160' as ' '.
* `Text.Pandoc.Readers.HTML`:
+ Removed `rawHtmlBlock`, `anyHtmlBlockTag`, `anyHtmlInlineTag`,
`anyHtmlTag`, `anyHtmlEndTag`, `htmlEndTag`, `extractTagType`,
`htmlBlockElement`, `htmlComment`
+ Added `htmlTag`, `htmlInBalanced`, `isInlineTag`, `isBlockTag`,
* Moved `smartPunctuation` from `Text.Pandoc.Readers.Markdown`
to `Text.Pandoc.Readers.Parsing`, and parameterized it with
an inline parser.
* Added `nonspaceChar` to `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`.
* Ellipses are no longer allowed to contain spaces.
Previously we allowed '. . .', ' . . . ', etc. This caused
too many complications, and removed author's flexibility in
combining ellipses with spaces and periods.
* Allow linebreaks in URLs (treat as spaces). Also, a string of
consecutive spaces or tabs is now parsed as a single space. If you have
multiple spaces in your URL, use `%20%20`.
* `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`:
+ Removed `refsMatch`.
+ Hid `Key` constructor.
+ Removed custom `Ord` and `Eq` instances for `Key`.
+ Added `toKey` and `fromKey` to convert between `Key` and `[Inline]`.
+ Generalized type on `readWith`.
* Small change in calculation of relative widths of table columns.
If the size of the header > the specified column width, use
the header size as 100% for purposes of calculating
relative widths of columns.
* Markdown writer now uses some pandoc-specific features when `--strict`
is not specified: `\` newline is used for a hard linebreak instead of
two spaces then a newline. And delimited code blocks are used when
there are attributes.
* HTML writer: improved gladTeX output by setting ENV appropriately
for display or inline math (Jonathan Daugherty).
* LaTeX writer: Use `\paragraph`, `\subparagraph` for level 4,5 headers.
* LaTeX reader:
+ `\label{foo}` and `\ref{foo}` now become `{foo}` instead of `(foo)`.
+ `\index{}` commands are skipped.
* Added `fontsize` variable to default LaTeX template.
This makes it easy to set the font size using `markdown2pdf`:
`markdown2pdf -V fontsize=12pt input.txt`.
* Fixed problem with strikeout in LaTeX headers when using
hyperref, by adding a command to the default LaTeX template
that disables `\sout` inside pdf strings. Thanks to Joost Kremers
for the fix.
* The `COLUMNS` environment variable no longer has any effect.
[under-the-hood improvements]
* Pandoc now compiles with GHC 7. (This alone leads to a
significant performance improvement, 15-20%.)
* Completely rewrote HTML reader using tagsoup as a lexer. The
new reader is faster and more accurate. Unlike the
old reader, it does not get bogged down on some input
(Issues #277, 255). And it handles namespaces in tags
(Issue #274).
* Replaced `escapeStringAsXML` with a faster version.
* Rewrote `spaceChar` and some other parsers in Text.Pandoc.Parsing
for a significant performance boost.
* Improved performance of all readers by rewriting parsers.
* Simplified Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences by using
entity lookup functions from TagSoup.
* `Text.Pandoc.UTF8` now uses the unicode-aware IO functions
from `System.IO` if base >= 4.2. This gives support for
windows line endings on windows.
* Remove duplications in documentation by generating the
pandoc man page from README, using `MakeManPage.hs`.
* README now includes a full description of markdown syntax,
including non-pandoc-specific parts. A new `pandoc_markdown`
man page is extracted from this, so you can look up markdown
syntax by doing `man pandoc_markdown`.
* Completely revised test framework (with help from Nathan Gass).
The new test framework is built when the `tests` Cabal flag is set. It
includes the old integration tests, but also some new unit and quickcheck
tests. Test output has been much improved, and you can now specify a glob
pattern after `cabal test` to indicate which tests should be run;
for example `cabal test citations` will run all the citation tests.
* Added a shell script, ``, for filtering ANSI control
sequences from test output: `cabal test | ./ > test.log`.
* Added `Interact.hs` to make it easier to use ghci while developing.
`Interact.hs` loads `ghci` from the `src` directory, specifying
all the options needed to load pandoc modules (including
specific package dependencies, which it gets by parsing
* Added `Benchmark.hs`, testing all readers + writers using criterion.
* Added ``, to make it easier to collect and archive
benchmark and lines-of-code stats.
* Added upper bounds to all cabal dependencies.
* Include man pages in extra-source-files. This allows users to
install pandoc from the tarball without needing to build the man
[bug fixes]
* Filenames are encoded as UTF8. Resolves Issue #252.
* Handle curly quotes better in `--smart` mode. Previously, curly quotes
were just parsed literally, leading to problems in some output formats.
Now they are parsed as `Quoted` inlines, if `--smart` is specified.
Resolves Issue #270.
* Text.Pandoc.Parsing: Fixed bug in grid table parser.
Spaces at end of line were not being stripped properly,
resulting in unintended LineBreaks.
* Markdown reader:
+ Allow HTML comments as inline elements in markdown.
So, `aaa <!-- comment --> bbb` can be a single paragraph.
+ Fixed superscripts with links: `^[link](/foo)^` gets
recognized as a superscripted link, not an inline note followed by
+ Fixed regression, making markdown reference keys case-insensitive again.
Resolves Issue #272.
+ Properly handle abbreviations (like `Mr.`) at the end of a line.
+ Better handling of intraword underscores, avoiding exponential
slowdowns in some cases. Resolves Issue #182.
+ Fixed bug in alignments in tables with blank rows in the header.
* RST reader:
+ Field lists now allow spaces in field names, and
block content in field values. (Thanks to Lachlan Musicman
for pointing out the bug.)
+ Definition list items are now always `Para` instead of
`Plain`, matching behavior of ``.
+ In image blocks, the description is parsed properly and
used for the alt attribute, not also the title.
+ Skip blank lines at beginning of file. Resolves
Debian #611328.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Improved parsing of preamble.
Previously you'd get unexpected behavior on a document that
contained `\begin{document}` in, say, a verbatim block.
+ Allow spaces between `\begin` or `\end` and `{`.
+ Support `\L` and `\l`.
+ Skip comments inside paragraphs.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Escape strings in `\href{..}`.
+ In nonsimple tables, put cells in `\parbox`.
* OpenDocument writer: don't print raw TeX.
* Markdown writer:
+ Fixed bug in `Image`. URI was getting unescaped twice!
+ Avoid printing extra blank lines at the end if there are
no notes or references.
* LaTeX and ConTeXt: Escape `[` and `]` as `{[}` and `{]}`.
This avoids unwanted interpretation as an optional argument.
* ConTeXt writer: Fixed problem with inline code. Previously
`}` would be rendered `\type{}}`. Now we check the string for '}' and '{'.
If it contains neither, use `\type{}`; otherwise use `\mono{}`
with an escaped version of the string.
* `:` now allowed in HTML tags. Resolves Issue #274.
pandoc (1.6)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* New EPUB and HTML Slidy writers. (Issue #122)
- EPUB is a standard ebook format, used in Apple's iBooks for
the iPad and iPhone, Barnes and Noble's nook reader, the Sony
reader, and many other devices.
- Slidy, like S5, is a system for producing HTML+javascript slide
* All input is assumed to be UTF-8, no matter what the locale and ghc
version, and all output is UTF-8. This reverts to pre-1.5 behavior.
Also, a BOM, if present, is stripped from the input.
* Markdown now supports grid tables, whose cells can contain
arbitrary block elements. (Issue #43)
* Sequentially numbered example lists in markdown with `@` marker.
* Markdown table captions can begin with a bare colon and no longer need
to include the English word "table." Also, a caption can now occur
either before or after the table. (Issue #227)
* New command-line options:
- `--epub-stylesheet` allows you to specify a CSS file that will
be used to style your ebook.
- `--epub-metadata` allows you to specify metadata for the ebook.
- `--offline` causes the generated HTML slideshow to include all
needed scripts and stylesheets.
- `--webtex` causes TeX math to be converted to images using the
Google Charts API (unless a different URL is specified).
- `--section-divs` causes div tags to be added around each section
in an HTML document. (Issue #230, 239)
* Default behavior of S5 writer in standalone mode has changed:
previously, it would include all needed scripts and stylesheets
in the generated HTML; now, only links are included unless
the `--offline` option is used.
* Default behavior of HTML writer has changed. Between 1.2 and 1.5,
pandoc would enclose sections in div tags with identifiers on the
div tags, so that the sections can be manipulated in javascript.
This caused undesirable interactions with raw HTML div tags. So,
starting with 1.6, the default is to put the identifiers directly
on the header tags, and not to include the divs. The `--section-divs`
option selects the 1.2-1.5 behavior.
* API changes:
- `HTMLMathMethod`: Added `WebTeX`, removed `MimeTeX`.
- `WriterOptions`: Added `writerUserDataDir`, `writerSourceDirectory`,
`writerEPUBMetadata` fields. Removed `writerIncludeBefore`,
- Added `headerShift` to `Text.Pandoc.Shared`.
- Moved parsing code and `ParserState` from `Text.Pandoc.Shared`
to a new module, `Text.Pandoc.Parsing`.
- Added `stateHasChapters` to `ParserState`.
- Added `HTMLSlideVariant`.
- Made `KeyTable` a map instead of an association list.
- Added accessors for `Meta` fields (`docTitle`, `docAuthors`,
- `Pandoc`, `Meta`, `Inline`, and `Block` have been given `Ord`
- Reference keys now have a type of their own (`Key`), with its
own `Ord` instance for case-insensitive comparison.
- Added `Text.Pandoc.Writers.EPUB`.
- Added `Text.Pandoc.UUID`.
- Removed `Text.Pandoc.ODT`, added `Text.Pandoc.Writers.ODT`.
Removed `saveOpenDocumentAsODT`, added `writeODT`.
- Added `Text.Pandoc.Writers.Native` and `writeNative`.
Removed `prettyPandoc`.
- Added `Text.Pandoc.UTF8` for portable UTF8 string IO.
- Removed `Text.Pandoc.Writers.S5` and the `writeS5` function.
Moved `s5Includes` to a new module, `Text.Pandoc.S5`.
To write S5, you now use `writeHtml` with `writerSlideVariant`
set to `S5Slides` or `SlidySlides`.
* Template changes. If you use custom templates, please update them,
particularly if you use syntax highlighting with pandoc. The old HTML
templates hardcoded highlighting CSS that will no longer work with
the most recent version of highlighting-kate.
- HTML template: avoid empty meta tag if no date.
- HTML template: Use default highlighting CSS from highlighting-kate
instead of hard-coding the CSS into the template.
- HTML template: insert-before text goes before the title, and
immediately after the <body> tag, as documented. (Issue #241)
- Added slidy and s5 templates.
- Added amssymb to preamble of latex template. (github Issue 1)
* Removed excess newlines at the end of output. Note: because output
will not contain an extra newline, you may need to make adjustments
if you are inserting pandoc's output into a template.
* In S5 and slidy, horizontal rules now cause a new slide, so you
are no longer limited to one slide per section.
* Improved handling of code in man writer. Inline code is now monospace,
not bold, and code blocks now use .nf (no fill) and .IP (indented para).
* HTML reader parses `<tt>` as Code. (Issue #247)
* html+lhs output now contains bird tracks, even when compiled without
highlighting support. (Issue #242)
* Colons are now no longer allowed in autogenerated XML/HTML identifiers,
since they have a special meaning in XML.
* Code improvements in ODT writer. Remote images are now replaced with
their alt text rather than a broken link.
* LaTeX reader improvements:
- Made latex `\section`, `\chapter` parsers more forgiving of
- Parse `\chapter{}` in latex.
- Changed `rawLaTeXInline` to accept `\section`, `\begin`, etc.
- Use new `rawLaTeXInline'` in LaTeX reader, and export `rawLaTeXInline`
for use in markdown reader.
- Fixes bug wherein `\section{foo}` was not recognized as raw TeX
in markdown document.
* LaTeX writer: images are automatically shrunk if they would extend
beyond the page margin.
* Plain, markdown, RST writers now use unicode for smart punctuation.
* Man writer converts math to unicode when possible, as in other writers.
* `markdown2pdf` can now recognize citeproc options.
* Command-line arguments are converted to UTF-8. (Issue #234)
* `Text.Pandoc.TeXMath` has been rewritten to use texmath's parser.
This allows it to handle a wider range of formulas. Also, if a formula
cannot be converted, it is left in raw TeX; formulas are no longer
partially converted.
* Unicode curly quotes are left alone when parsing smart quotes. (Issue
* Cabal file changes:
- Removed parsec < 3 restriction.
- Added 'threaded' flag for architectures where GHC lacks a threaded
- Use 'threaded' only for markdown2pdf; it is not needed for pandoc.
- Require highlighting-kate 0.2.7.
* Use explicit imports from `Data.Generics`. Otherwise we have a
conflict with the 'empty' symbol, introduced in syb >= 0.2. (Issue #237)
* New data files: slidy/slidy.min.js, slidy/slidy.min.css, epub.css.
pandoc (
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Fixed uniqueIdent in Shared so that header identifiers work as
advertized in the README and are are valid XHTML names.
pandoc (1.5.1)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Fixed treatment of unicode characters in URIs.
+ Shared now exports escapeURI and unescapeURI. These handle
UTF8 encoding and decoding as well as URI escaping/unescaping.
+ Shared: uri and emailAddress now return a pair of the original
parsed text and the escaped URI (in the latter case, with
the mailto: prefix).
+ HTML reader: unsanitaryURI has been modified to allow unicode
high characters in a URI.
+ Readers: All link and image URIs are now escaped using
+ Markdown and RST writers: unescapeURI is used so that URIs
in these formats are human-readable.
* Setup.hs: Don't assume that the build directory is "dist".
Instead, get it from localBuildInfo.
* OpenDocument writer: Use a Map for stTextStyleAttr.
This avoids duplicates (and invalid xml). Resolves Issue #222.
pandoc (
[ John MacFarlane ]
* HTML writer: Fixed error in math writer (with MathML option)
that caused an infinite loop for unparsable MathML.
pandoc (1.5)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Added --mathml option. When this is selected, pandoc will convert
TeX math into MathML.
+ Added data/MathMLinHTML.js, which is included when no URL is
provided for --mathml. This allows MathML to be displayed (in
better browsers) as text/html.
+ Removed Text.Pandoc.LaTeXMathML. The module was no longer
necessary; it was replaced by two lines in pandoc.hs.
+ Replaced LaTeXMathML.js.commend and LaTeXMathML.js.packed with a
single combined file, LaTeXMathML.js.
* Added --data-dir option.
This specifies a user data directory. If not specified, will default
to ~/.pandoc on unix or Application Data\pandoc on Windows.
Files placed in the user data directory will override system default
data files.
* Added Maybe datadir parameter to readDataFile, saveOpenDocumentAsODT,
latexMathMLScript, s5HeaderIncludes, and getDefaultTemplate. If
Nothing, no user directory is searched for an override.
* Added 'plain' output format. This is similar to markdown, but
removes links, pictures, inline formatting, and most anything that
looks even vaguely markupish. The function writePlain is exported by
Text.Pandoc.Writers.Markdown, with which it shares most of its code.
* Allow multi-line titles and authors in meta block.
Titles may span multiple lines, provided continuation lines
begin with a space character. Separate authors may be put on
multiple lines, provided each line after the first begins with
a space character. Each author must fit on one line. Multiple
authors on a single line may still be separated by a semicolon.
Based on a patch by Justin Bogner.
* When given an absolute URI as parameter, pandoc will try to fetch
the content via HTTP. So you can do:
'pandoc -r html -w markdown'
Adds dependency on HTTP.
* Made HTML reader much more forgiving.
+ Incorporated idea (from HXT) that an element can be closed
by an open tag for another element.
+ Javascript is partially parsed to make sure that a <script>
section is not closed by a </script> in a comment or string.
+ More lenient non-quoted attribute values.
Now we accept anything but a space character, quote, or <>.
This helps in parsing e.g.!
+ Bare & signs are now parsed as a string. This is a common
HTML mistake.
+ Skip a bare < in malformed HTML.
* Removed html2markdown and hsmarkdown.
+ html2markdown is no longer needed, since you can now pass URI
arguments to pandoc and directly convert web pages. (Note,
however, that pandoc assumes the pages are UTF8. html2markdown
made an attempt to guess the encoding and convert them.)
+ hsmarkdown is pointless -- a large executable that could be
replaced by 'pandoc --strict'.
* In most writers, an image in a paragraph by itself is now rendered
as a figure, with the alt text as the caption. (Texinfo, HTML, RST,
MediaWiki, Docbook, LaTeX, ConTeXt, HTML.) Other images are
rendered inline.
* Depend on extensible-exceptions. This allows pandoc to be compiled
on GHC 6.8.
* Added --base-header-level option. For example, --base-header-level=2
will change level 1 headers to level 2, level 2 to level 3, etc.
Closes Debian #563416.
* Incomplete support for RST tables (simple and grid).
Thanks to Eric Kow. Colspans and rowspans not yet supported.
* Added accessors (docTitle, docAuthors, docDate) to Meta type.
* MediaWiki writer: format links with relative URLs as wikilinks.
The new rule: If the link target is an absolute URL, an external
link is created. Otherwise, a wikilink is created.
* Text.Pandoc.Shared: Export uniqueIdent, and don't allow tilde in
identifier. Note: This may break links to sections that involve
* Markdown(+lhs) reader: handle "inverse bird tracks."
Inverse bird tracks (<) are used for haskell example code that is not
part of the literate Haskell program. Resolves Issue #211.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Recognize '\ ' (interword space).
+ Recognize nonbreaking space '~'.
+ Ignore \section, \pdfannot, \pdfstringdef. Ignore alt title in
section headers. Don't treat \section as inline LaTeX.
Resolves Issue #202.
+ LaTeX reader: allow any special character to be escaped.
Resolves Issue #221.
+ LaTeX reader: treat \paragraph and \subparagraph as level 4, 5
headers. Resolves Issue #207.
* Use template variables for include-before/after.
+ These options now imply -s; previously they worked also in fragment
+ Users can now adjust position of include-before and include-after
text in the templates.
+ Default position of include-before moved back (as it was before 1.4)
before table of contents.
+ Resolves Issue #217.
* Don't print an empty table header: (all writers).
Resolves Issue #210.
* HTML, Docbook writer: Use tbody, thead, and cols in tables.
* HTML writer: Don't include TOC div if table of contents is empty.
* Markdown writer: Fixed citations.
Previously the markdown writer printed raw citation codes, e.g.
[geach1970], rather than the expanded citations provided by
citeproc, e.g. (Geach 1970). Now it prints the expanded citations.
This means that the document produced can be processed as a markdown
document without citeproc. Thanks to dsanson for reporting, and
Andrea Rossato for the patch.
* Improved and simplified title block in context template.
Previously it caused an error if there was no title.
This method should also be easier for users to customize.
* Markdown reader:
+ Treat p., pp., sec., ch., as abbreviations in smart mode.
+ Disallow blank lines in inline code span.
+ Allow footnotes to be indented < 4 spaces.
This fixes a regression. A test case has been added.
+ Escape spaces in URLs as %20. Previously they were incorrectly
escaped as +, which is appropriate only for the query part of
a URL. Resolves Issue #220.
+ Require two spaces after capital letter + period for list item.
Otherwise "E. coli" starts a list. This might change the semantics
of some existing documents, since previously the two-space
requirement was only enforced when the second word started
with a capital letter. But it is consistent with the existing
documentation and follows the principle of least surprise.
Resolves Issue #212.
* LaTeX template: redefine labelwidth when using enumerate package.
Otherwise the list labels (numbers) often extend past the left
margin, which looks bad.
* Mediawiki writer: Don't print a "== Notes ==" header before
references. This is too English-centric. Writers can provide their
own header at the end of the document.
* Promoted mediawiki headers. '= head =' is now level 1, '== head =='
level 2, etc. This seems to be correct; it's only by convention
that wikipedia articles have level 2 headers at most.
Patch due to Eric Kow.
* RunTests.hs: Set LANG to a UTF-8 locale. Use 'pandoc --data-dir=' so
data files don't need to have been installed. This removes the need to
set HOME.
* HTML reader:
+ Handle spaces before <html>. Resolves Issue #216.
+ Be forgiving in parsing a bare list within a list.
The following is not valid xhtml, but the intent is clear:
We'll treat the <ol> as if it's in a <li>. Resolves Issue #215.
* Updated INSTALL instructions. cabal method is now promoted.
* Updated markdown2pdf man page. It no longer says all pandoc options
are accepted.
* README/man pages: Removed advice to pipe through tidy before HTML
reader. This is obsolete, now that we have a forgiving HTML parser.
* LaTeX writer: set numbersections template variable, so
the section numbering options work again.
* Removed obsolete Makefile.
* Website: renamed -> index.txt.
* New batch file to make-windows-installer.
+ Removed old
+ Added make-windows-installer.bat
+ Modified default installer name in pandoc-setup.iss
* Removed freebsd and macports directories.
They are no longer up to date.
* Setup.hs:
+ Made man page building sensitive to build verbosity.
+ Improved detection of highlighting support in test hook.
+ Install wrapper scripts into cabal bin directory.
+ Also simplified installManpages.
+ Setup.hs: install manpages to mandir. Code borrowed from darcs.
* Changed default of writerXeTeX to False.
* HTML writer: don't include empty UL if --toc but no sections.
Resolves Issue #199.
* LaTeX writer:
+ If book, report, or memoir documentclass, use \chapter{}
for first-level headers. Otherwise use \section{}.
+ Removed stLink, link template variable. Reason: we now always
include hyperref in the template.
* LaTeX template:
+ Only show \author if there are some.
+ Always include hyperref package. It is used not just for links but
for toc, section heading bookmarks, footnotes, etc. Also added
unicode=true on hyperref options.
* markdown2pdf: always do at least two runs. hyperref bookmarks
require this.
* cabal file: Removed unneeded dependency on template-haskell.
* Windows installer - fixed bug in data file locations.
Resolves Issue #197.
* Deprecated --custom-header in documentation.
Removed old "Custom Headers" section in README.
pandoc (1.4)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Pandoc will now compile with either GHC 6.10 or 6.12.
+ Don't use System.IO.UTF8 when compiling with 6.12
+ Use -fno-warn-unused-do-bind option when compiling with 6.12
* Replaced old headers with templates. Now users have much more
control over the way documents appear in --standalone mode,
and writer code is simplified. Resolves Issues #59, 147.
Every effort has been made to retain backwards compatibilty.
So, the --custom-header option should still work as before.
+ Added Text.Pandoc.Templates. This provides functions for
retrieving default templates and for rendering templates.
+ System templates (in the pandoc data directory) can be
overridden by user templates in $HOME/.pandoc/templates.
+ Removed Text.Pandoc.DefaultHeaders.
+ Removed data/headers directory.
+ Added templates directory.
+ Added writerTemplate and writerVariables fields to WriterOptions.
+ Removed writerTitlePrefix, writerHeader fields from WriterOptions.
+ Changed --print-default-header to --print-default-template.
+ Added --template option.
+ Added -V/--variable option to set custom template variables.
* Pandoc no longer requires Template Haskell. Resolves Issue #186.
+ Removed need for TH in ODT module. Instead get reference.odt from
data file at run time.
+ Removed TH dependency from S5 module. S5 module now exports
s5HeaderIncludes, which pandoc.hs includes if writer is s5 and
+ Refactored LaTeXMathML not to use TH.
* Meta is now Meta [Inline] [[Inline]] [Inline] rather than
Meta [Inline] [String] String. Authors and date in Meta are now lists
of Inline elements rather than raw strings. This means that they can
be formatted and can include footnotes. NOTE: This may be a breaking
change for those using pandoc as a library.
* Added readDataFile to Text.Pandoc.Shared. This retrieves
a data file from the user pandoc data directory (~/.pandoc
on unix), or, if not found there, from the system data
directory ($CABALDIR/shared/pandoc-VERSION/). All data
files, including templates, LaTeXMathML.js, s5 styles,
and reference.odt, can be overridden by the user.
* s5 files moved from data/ui/default to s5/default.
* Use unicode instead of entities in HTML and XML output. Resolves
Issue #163.
* Prettier HTML footnote references: put anchor inside sup,
instead of other way. Resolves Issue #191. Thanks to
* Added --xetex option to pandoc and markdown2pdf.
If --xetex is specified, pandoc produces latex suitable for
processing by xelatex, and markdown2pdf uses xelatex to create
the PDF. Resolves Issue #185.
* RTF writer: multiple authors now occupy multiple paragraphs rather
than using a line break.
* Man writer: now the "--after-body" will come after the "AUTHORS"
section, whereas before it would come before it. This is a
slight break from backwards compatibility.
* Added --reference-odt option, so users may customize the styles
used in pandoc-generated ODT files. Users may also place a
default reference.odt in the ~\.pandoc directory.
* ODT writer:
+ Indented and line-broke styles.xml so it can be modified more easily.
+ Omitted some unnecessary style declarations.
+ Don't wrap text in OpenDocument writer. The tags are too long, making
wrapping ugly and pointless.
* LaTeX reader: use \\ to separate multiple authors.
* Markdown reader: use ; as separator between authors.
This allows you to use ',' within author names: e.g. "John Jones, Jr."
* S5 writer: use linebreak to separate authors in title page.
* RST reader: Allow :: before lhs code block. The RST spec requires the
:: before verbatim blocks. This :: should not be treated as literal
colons. Resolves Issue #189.
* Documented pandoc 1.3's new definition list syntax in README.
(An oversight in the last release.)
* markdown2pdf.hs:
+ interpret ! in a log as an error line.
+ --toc now works properly.
* Changes in RunTests.hs:
+ Use the Diff library rather than a local copy of Diff.hs.
(This vastly increases performance.) This change means that 'cabal
test' presupposes that the Diff library is installed.
+ Removed tests/Diff.hs from cabal file.
+ Changed RunTests to use local environment. We need at least HOME, so
pandoc can find its data directory.
* Updated windows installer to install data files in the app directory.
* Windows installer now installs portable wrappers hsmarkdown and
pandoc (1.3)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Added --id-prefix option (Issue #41). This adds a prefix to all
automatically generated HTML identifiers, which helps prevent
duplicate identifiers when you're generating a fragment (say a blog
* Added --indented-code-classes option. This specifies classes
to use for indented code blocks. (Patch due to buttock; Issue #87.)
* --number-sections now affects HTML output as well as ConTeXt and LaTeX
(Issue #150).
* Improved syntax for markdown definition lists (Issue #24).
Definition lists are now more compatible with PHP Markdown Extra.
+ You can have multiple definitions for a term (but still not
multiple terms).
+ Multi-block definitions no longer need a column before each block
(indeed, this will now cause multiple definitions).
+ The marker no longer needs to be flush with the left margin,
but can be indented at or two spaces. Also, ~ as well as :
can be used as the marker (this suggestion due to David
+ There can now be a blank line between the term and the
* Better looking simple tables. Resolves Issue #180.
+ Markdown reader: simple tables are now given column widths of 0.
+ Column width of 0 is interpreted as meaning: use default column width.
+ Writers now include explicit column width information only
for multiline tables. (Exception: RTF writer, which requires
column widths. In this case, columns are given equal widths,
adding up to the text width.)
+ Simple tables should now look better in most output formats.
* Allow markdown tables without headers (Issue #50).
The new syntax is described in README. Also allow optional line of
dashes at bottom of simple tables.
* Compensate for width of final table column (Issue #144).
* Treat a backslash followed by a newline as a hard line break
in markdown. Resolves Issue #154. This is a nice alternative
to markdown's "invisible" way of indicating hardline breaks
using lines that end with two spaces.
* Improved performance of markdown reader by ~10% by eliminating the
need for a separate parsing pass for notes. Raw notes are now stored
on the first pass (which parses references), then parsed when the
note is inserted into the AST. The stateNotes field in ParserState
is now a list of [(String, String)] pairs instead of [(String,
* In markdown reader, treat 4 or more * or _ in a row as literal
text. (Trying to parse long strings of * or _ as strong or emph
leads to exponential performance problems.)
* Markdown reader: Use + rather than %20 for spaces in URLs.
* Fixed htmlComment parser, adding a needed 'try'.
* Don't print raw HTML in man output.
* Allow . _ and ~ in header identifiers.
* Specially mark code blocks that were "literate" in the input.
They can then be treated differently in the writers. This allows
authors to distinguish bits of the literate program they are writing
from source code examples, even if the examples are marked as
Haskell for highlighting. (Issue #174.)
* Modified html+lhs output to use "haskell" highlighter instead
of "literateHaskell". The highlighting module now adds bird tracks
after highlighting (for HTML output), if the code block has the
"literate" class. This gives better results, because kate's
haskell highlighter is much better than the literateHaskell
* Fixed handling of footnotes in titles (HTML) and headers (LaTeX).
(Issue #137.)
* Support for "..code-block" directive in RST reader. Not core
RST, but used in Sphinx for code blocks annotated with syntax
information. Thanks to Luke Plant for the patch.
* Added "head" to list of block-level HTML tags. Resolves
Issue #108.
* Added stripTags to Text.Pandoc.XML. This is used in the HTML writer.
* Set utf-8 encoding in texinfo headers.
* Docbook writer: add ids to sections. Use link for internal links.
(Issue #60.)
* Blank lines after lists in MediaWiki writer.
* Properly handle commented-out list items in markdown.
Resolves Issue #142. Example:
- a
- b
- c
* Changed heuristic in compactify. compactify has to decide whether a
Para that ends a list is a Para intentionally, or just because of
the blank lines at the end of every list. In the latter case the
Para is turned to a Plain. The old heuristic was: change final Para
to Plain iff the other items all end in Plain. This produces bad
results when, for example, an item contains just a Plain and an HTML
comment, as it does in the list above. The new heuristic: change
final Para to Plain iff the other items don't contain a Para.
* Added % as an rst underline character. Resolves Issue #173.
* Fix inline math parser so that \$ is allowed in math.
Resolves Issue #169.
* Translate \int (integral) into unicode when using unicode math
method. Resolves Issue #177.
* markdown2pdf.hs improvements:
+ Use System.IO.UTF8.
+ Print error messages on last attempt.
+ Do not create a backup when overwriting a PDF (Issue #166).
+ Accept --longopt=val options.
+ Added man/man1/markdown2pdf.1 to extra-tmp-files in cabal, so that
it is properly cleaned.
* Added haddock comments warning that readers assume \n line endings.
* Updated COPYRIGHT file.
* Makefile: Changed EXECSBASE so it doesn't pull in hsmarkdown &
markdown2pdf. Otherwise strip tries to strip shell scripts when you
install using 'make'.
* Changed Makefile so it doesn't build Haskell wrappers.
* Fixed Makefile so it doesn't try to build man pages in build-doc.
* Install pcre3.dll in Windows install script; this allows us to
package a version of pandoc with highlighting support.
pandoc (1.2.1)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Fixed regression with --preserveTabs. Brought back optPreserveTabs.
The trick of setting tabStop to 0 to mean "preserve tabs" had a bad
side effect: strings of 0 spaces were interpreted as indentation.
So, with --preserve-tabs, unindented paragraphs were treated as
code. Resolves Issue #138.
* HTML writer: wrap sections in divs. Resolves Issue #70.
+ hierarchicalize has been rationalized; it builds a hierarchical
representation of the document from the headers, and simultaneously
gives each section a unique identifier based on the heading title.
+ Identifiers are now attached to the divs rather than
to the headers themselves.
+ Table of content backlinks go to the beginning of the table, rather
than to the section reference that was clicked.
+ Code for constructing identifiers has been moved to Text.Pandoc.Shared
from the HTML writer, since it is now consumed only by
+ In --strict mode, pandoc just prints bare headings, as before
(unless --toc has been specified).
+ In s5 output, it does not wrap sections in divs, as that seems to
confuse the s5 javascript.
* Man writer: break lines at end of each sentence. groff expects this
and treats '.' and '?' differently when followed by line ending as
opposed to ordinary space. Also, don't escape periods. Instead, use
zero-width character \& to avoid unwanted interpretation of periods
at start of line. Resolves Issue #148.
* Markdown writer: Added '#' and '>' to list of characters to be
escaped in markdown output. Removed '<', as it is not an officially
escapable character. This partially resolves Issue #96.
* Make --smart the default for man output format. Otherwise we have
trouble dividing lists of endlines into sentences.
* DocBook writer: Use language attribute to indicate source language
in code blocks.
* RST reader:
+ Allow # to continue list, even if the list was started with an
explicit marker. For example:
A. my list
#. continued
Resolves Issue #140.
+ Allow continuation lines in line blocks. Also added test cases for
line blocks for RST reader. Resolves Issue #149.
+ Allow explicit links with spaces in URL: `link <to this>`_
* Improved LaTeX reader's coverage of math modes. Remove displaymath*
(which is not in LaTeX) and recognize all the amsmath environments
that are alternatives to eqnarray, namely equation, equation*,
gather, gather*, gathered, multline, multline*, align, align*,
alignat, alignat*, aligned, alignedat, split. Resolves Issue #103.
Thanks to shreevatsa.public for the patch.
* Markdown reader:
+ Allow -, _, :, . in markdown attribute names. These are legal in
XML attribute names.
+ Use non-breaking spaces in abbreviations.
+ Markdown reader: improved efficiency of abbreviation parsing.
Instead of a separate abbrev parser, we just check for
abbreviations each time we parse a string. This gives a huge
performance boost with -S. Resolves Issue #141.
* Improved efficiency of shared parsers: hexNum, htmlComment,
whitespace, indentSpaces.
* Export HTMLMathMethod in Text.Pandoc.
* Export languagesByExtension in Text.Pandoc.Highlighting.
* Added new Haskell version of markdown2pdf, due to
Paulo Tanimoto. This should be more portable than the old
shell script.
* Made 'pandoc -v' more explicit about compiler options.
Resolves Issue #139.
* pandoc.hs: Made --strict compatible with --standalone, --toc.
* Use Paths_pandoc to get version number, instead of hard-coding it
into Text/Pandoc.hs.
pandoc (1.2)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Added support for literate Haskell. lhs support is triggered by
'+lhs' suffixes in formats. For example, 'latex+lhs' is literate
Haskell LaTeX. '.lhs' files are treated by default as literate
+ Added stateLiterateHaskell to parser state.
+ Added parser for lhsCodeBlock to Markdown, RST, LaTeX readers.
+ Added parser for |inline lhs| to LaTeX reader.
+ Added writerLiterateHaskell to WriterOptions.
+ Added lhs support to Markdown, RST, LaTeX, HTML writers.
+ Added definition of code environment to LaTeX header.
+ Added tests (run only if highlighting support compiled in).
+ Documented lhs features in man page and README.
* In Text.Pandoc.Definition, added processWith, processWithM,
and queryWith, and deprecated processPandoc and queryPandoc
for these more general functions.
* Fixed bug in mediawiki writer: improper closing tags in tables.
Thanks to Benct Philip Jonsson for reporting the bug.
* Added --email-obfuscation option.
+ Added writer option for email obfuscation.
+ Implemented email obfuscation options in HTML writer.
+ Added option to option parser.
+ Documented in README and pandoc man page.
+ Resolves Issue #97.
* LaTeX writer: fixed bug with empty table cells.
Resolves Issue #107. Thanks to rodja.trappe for the patch.
* Fixed bug with header spacing in Markdown and RST writers.
A null header (Meta [] [] []) should not cause a blank line
at the beginning of output. But a blank line is needed between
a non-null header and the main text.
* Markdown reader: Relax spacing rules for $$ in display math. Now
space and newlines are allowed after the opening $$ and before the
closing $$. However, the display math cannot contain an entirely
blank line. Resolves Issue #105.
* Markdown reader: Gobble space after Plain blocks containing only
raw html inline. Otherwise following header blocks are not parsed
correctly, since the parser sees blank space before them. Resolves
Issue #124.
* Markdown reader: Allow " as well as '' to end a latex double-quote.
* Conditionally depend on syb and base >= 4 if ghc >= 6.10.
Resolves Issue #109.
* Fixed problems in RST and markdown output due to bug in pretty-
+ Added hang' function to Text.Pandoc.Shared; this will be used instead
of hang, which doesn't work properly in pretty- When pretty
is upgraded, we can go back to hang.
+ Use hang' (and some different techniques) in RST and markdown writers.
Some output is now a bit different.
* Brought citeproc support up to date for citeproc-hs-0.2.
(Patch by Andrea Rossato.)
* Moved all haskell source to src subdirectory. Renamed Main.hs to
* Rewrote hsmarkdown in Haskell for portability (src/hsmarkdown.hs).
For now, keeping the old shell script too.
* Added TemplateHaskell to Extensions for executable, removed
-threaded for library. Thanks to duncan.coutts for the bug report.
Resolves Issue #121.
* Moved some Extra-Source-Files to Data-Files.
* Moved tabFilter to Shared.
* In pandoc.hs, removed optPreserveTabs; instead, tabstop of 0 means
preserve tabs.
* Minor code cleanup based on hlint suggestions.
pandoc (1.1)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Main.hs:
+ Changed date on copyright message in Main.hs.
+ Have the '-v' option print syntax highlighting languages
separated by commas, and wrapped in lines, instead of in five
columns as before.
* Added --jsmath option. Resolves Issue #68.
+ Added --jsmath option to Main.hs
+ Added JsMath to HTMLMathMethod in Text.Pandoc.Shared.
+ Handle math appropriately in HTML writer when JsMath selected.
+ Documented the option in README and man page.
* Text.Pandoc.Shared: Changed compactify to use a better heuristic
for tight and loose lists. Final Para is changed to Plain if all
other list items *end* with a Plain block. Addresses Issue #99.
* HTML reader:
+ Added colons to protocols in unsanitaryURI. Closes Issue #88.
+ HTML reader: Don't interpret contents of <pre> blocks as markdown.
Added rawVerbatimBlock parser. Resolves Issue #94.
* Markdown reader:
+ Allow URLs with spaces in them in links and references, but escape
them as "%20".
+ Allow blank space at the end of horizontal rules.
* RST reader: Modified 'unknownDirective' parser to handle comment
blocks correctly, and added tests for comment blocks. Resolves Issue
#86. Closes Debian Bug #500662.
* HTML writer:
+ Include classes on tr elements in HTML output:
"header", "odd", "even". This allows tables to be styled with
lines in alternating colors. Resolves Issue #91.
+ Enclose all LaTeXMathML bits in <span class="LaTeX">.
This prevents parts of the document that are not math from being
interpreted as math by LaTeXMathML.js.
* OpenDocument and ODT writers: Added support for HorizontalRule elements,
which were formerly ignored. Resolves Issue #95.
* Text.Pandoc.Shared: Modified wrappedTeX to eliminate the line break
between a footnote and immediately following nonspace characters in
LaTeX and ConTeXt output. (This gets interpreted as a space, which
is not desired in cases like "text^[note]---".) Resolves Issue #93.
* Windows installer: Don't require admin privileges to run
installer. Modified pandoc-setup.iss, and changed modpath.iss to
modify HKCU path if user lacks admin privileges. Also fixed case
where oldpath is empty (previously this led to the new path
beginning with a semicolon).
* Updated INSTALL instructions for Arch packages and OS X install using
* Removed the (now unneeded) debian directory.
Removed empty Codec and System directories.
* Moved odt-styles/ to data/. Removed unneeded variable in Makefile.
* Modified Setup.hs so that the "test" target returns an error status
when tests fail, and "build" returns a success status if
the build succeeds. Resolves Issue #100.
* Added BUGS to files in tarball.
pandoc (
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Removed spurious reference to pdf output format from pandoc(1) man page.
pandoc (1.0)
[ Andrea Rossato ]
* Added new OpenDocument writer.
* Added support for SmallCaps inline element.
* Added support for integrating pandoc with citeproc-hs.
+ Added Cite element to definition and writers.
+ Added Text.Pandoc.Biblio module
+ Note: This support is included only if the 'citeproc'
Cabal configuration flag is set.
* Made Pandoc data structure an instance of Typeable.
Added new processPandoc and queryPandoc functions, to query
or transform matching elements in a Pandoc structure.
[ Peter Wang ]
* Added new Texinfo writer.
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Changes to Texinfo writer:
+ No space between paragraph and following @verbatim (provides more
pleasing appearance in text formats)
+ Blank line consistently after list environments.
+ Removed deVerb.
+ Use @code instead of @verb for inline code (this solves the character
escaping problem for texi2dvi and texi2pdf).
+ Added news of Texinfo writer to README.
+ Added Texinfo to list of formats in man page, and removed extra 'groff'.
+ Added texi & texinfo extensions to Main.hs, and fixed bug in determining
default output extension.
+ Modified disallowedInNode in Texinfo writer to correct list of disallowed characters.
* Added tests for OpenDocument writer.
* Added ODT writer (using zip-archive library to package output of
OpenDocument writer). Added odt-styles directory with default ODT styles.
* Added new mediawiki writer and tests.
* Markdown reader: Added support for delimited code blocks, with optional
syntax highlighting using highlighting-kate (if the 'highlighting'
configuration option is selected).
+ Currently highlighting is supported only in the HTML writer.
+ Delimited code blocks can have attributes; using the language name as
class triggers highlighting.
+ New Attributes parameter in CodeBlock structure.
+ --version now indicates whether syntax highlighting support is compiled
in, and prints a list of supported languages
* Removed debian directory. Pandoc is no longer a native debian package.
* Changes to build process: pandoc can now be built from the repository
using Cabal. No unix tools are needed (so, pandoc can be built on Windows
without Cygwin).
+ Include shell scripts themselves in repo, rather than generating from wrappers.
Removed wrappers directory and wrappers Makefile target.
+ Text/Pandoc/ASCIIMathML.hs, Text/Pandoc/DefaultHeaders.hs,
and Text/Pandoc/Writers/S5.hs are no longer built in Makefile
from templates in the templates/ directory. Instead, they use template
haskell to read data at compile time from the relevant files in data/.
Template haskell functions go in a new module, Text.Pandoc.TH.
+ man pages are now generated in Setup.hs hook, not by Makefile
+ Makefile 'tarball' target now calls Cabal's 'sdist'
+ Added "Extra-Source-Files" to pandoc.cabal, so sdist contains everything needed
+ Added "Build-Type" field to pandoc.cabal to avoid warning.
+ Added to "Extra-source-files" and "Extra-tmp-files" in pandoc.cabal,
so 'sdist' and 'clean' will work properly.
+ Setup.hs now generates man pages in a postbuild hook.
+ Added dependency-checking to Setup.hs, so it only rebuilds things
that need rebuilding.
+ Added 'library' and 'executable' configuration flags.
Cabal can now be told to build just the library or just the executable.
+ CABALOPTS may now be specified with 'make' to pass Cabal configuration flags.
For example: CABALOPTS=-fhighlighting make
* Rewrote test suite so it doesn't depend on perl or unix tools.
+ Replaced old with a Haskell script RunTests.hs.
+ Added Diff.hs module to be used by RunTests.hs instead of unix 'diff'.
+ Added test hook to Setup.hs, so tests may be run from cabal.
+ Changed Makefile's 'test' target to run tests via cabal.
+ Removed old
+ Since we no longer have 'sed' to filter out raw HTML sections
from the docbook writer test, or raw LaTeX sections from the
context writer test, we now just include these sections.
They can be taken out if it is necessary to process the files.
+ Updated latex and context writer tests to remove extra spaces
after '\\item'
+ Added a markdown table reader test.
+ Added markdown-reader-more.txt to test suite, for additional test cases
for raw ConTeXt environments and more.
* Compatibility fixes for CPP, Cabal, and haddock:
+ Use CPP in "Extensions" field in pandoc.cabal.
+ Removed use of backslash string continuations in source files.
* Removed pandoc.cabal.ghc66. We now require Cabal >= 1.2, GHC >= 6.8,
base >= 3.
* Require parsec < 3.
The compatibility module in parsec 3.0.0 gives far worse performance than
parsec 2.1. Eventually pandoc will be upgraded to use the new bytestring
version of parsec, and then we'll go to parsec 3.0.0.
* Removed Text.Regex dependencies by rewriting using plain Haskell
(Text.Pandoc.Writers.RTF, Text.Pandoc.Writers.HTML, Main.hs)
* Moved Text.Pandoc.Writers.DefaultHeaders -> Text.Pandoc.DefaultHeaders.
* Makefile:
+ Added 'configure' as dependency of 'uninstall-all'.
(It uses the Cabal build program.)
+ Makefile: only use --with-hc-pkg if GHC_PKG is defined.
Note that Cabal will automatically choose the ghc-pkg appropriate
for the compiler selected, so normally specifying GHC by itself
is sufficient.
* Removed Text.Pandoc.UTF8 module; instead, depend on utf8-string and use
its IO and conversion functions.
* Added -Wall to ghc-options in pandoc.cabal. Cleaned up modules so that
everything is -Wall clean.
+ Added pragma to HTML writer to avoid deprecation warning for use of "start" attribute.
+ Added pragma to Text/Pandoc/Shared.hs to get rid of "orphan instance" warnings.
(These are caused by the Lift instance for ByteString.)
* Changed the comment used to replace unsafe HTML if sanitize-html option
* Made -c/--css option repeatable on the command line (like -H, -A, -B).
* Moved XML-formatting functions to new unexported module Text.Pandoc.XML.
* Escape '\160' as "&#160;", not "&nbsp;" in XML.
"nbsp" isn't a predefined XML entity.
* Fixed bug in RST reader, which would choke on: "p. one\ntwo\n".
Added some try's in ordered list parsers.
* Man writer: don't escape " as \".
* Allow newline before URL in markdown link references. Resolves Issue #81.
Added tests for this issue in new "markdown-reader-more" tests.
Changed RunTests.hs to run these tests.
* Support for display math. Resolves Issue #47.
+ Added a DisplayMath/InlineMath selector to Math inlines.
+ Markdown parser yields DisplayMath for $$...$$.
+ LaTeX parser yields DisplayMath when appropriate. Removed
mathBlock parsers, since the same effect is achieved by the math
inline parsers, now that they handle display math.
+ Writers handle DisplayMath as appropriate for the format.
+ Modified tests accordingly; added new tests for display math.
* Use LaTeXMathML instead of ASCIIMathML. LaTeXMathML is closer
to LaTeX in its display of math, and supports many non-math LaTeX environments.
+ Changed -m option to use LaTeXMathML rather than ASCIIMathML.
+ Modified HTML writer to print raw TeX when LaTeXMathML is
being used instead of suppressing it.
+ Removed ASCIIMathML files from data/ and added LaTeXMathML.
+ Replaced ASCIIMathML with LaTeXMathML in source files.
+ Modified README and pandoc man page source.
+ Added --latexmathml option (kept --asciimathml as a synonym
for backwards compatibility)
* Markdown reader: Parse setext headers before atx headers.
Test case:
# hi
parsed by as an H1 header with contents "# hi".
* Markdown reader: Treat "mixed" lists the same way as does.
The marker on the first list item determines the type of the whole
list. Thus, a list like
1. one
- two
* three
gets parsed as a single ordered list. (Previous versions of pandoc
treated this as an ordered list with an unordered sublist.)
* Markdown smart typography:
+ Em dashes no longer eat surrounding whitespace. Resolves Issue #69.
+ Use nonbreaking spaces after known abbreviations in markdown parser.
Thus, for example, "Mr. Brown" comes out as "Mr.~Brown" in LaTeX, and does
not produce a sentence-separating space. Resolves Issue #75.
* Markdown writer: Print unicode \160 literally, rather than as &nbsp;.
* Treat '\ ' in (extended) markdown as nonbreaking space.
Print nonbreaking space appropriately in each writer (e.g. ~ in LaTeX).
* The '--sanitize-html' option now examines URIs in markdown links
and images, and in HTML href and src attributes. If the URI scheme
is not on a whitelist of safe schemes, it is rejected. The main point
is to prevent cross-site scripting attacks using 'javascript:' URIs.
and Resolves Issue #62.
* HTML writer:
+ Override Text.XHtml's stringToHtml function,
so that characters below 0xff are not converted to numerical entity
references. Also convert '\160' to "&nbsp;". This should aid readability
and editability of the HTML source. It does presuppose that the HTML
will be served as UTF-8.
+ In code blocks, change leading newlines to <br /> tags.
(Some browsers ignore them.) Resolves Issue #71.
+ Use style attributes rather than css classes for strikethrough
and ordered list styles. This works better when fragments, rather than
standalone documents, are generated.
* HTML reader: Count anything that isn't a known block (HTML) tag as an
inline tag (rather than the other way around). Added "html", "head", and
"body" to list of block tags. Resolves Issue #66, allowing
<lj> to count as an inline tag.
* RTF writer: Fixed bug. Extra spaces were being printed after emphasized,
boldface, and other inline elements. Resolves Issue #64.
* LaTeX reader: improvements in raw LaTeX parsing.
+ "loose punctuation" (like {}) parsed as Space
+ Para elements must contain more than Str "" and Space elements
+ Added parser for "\ignore" command used in literate haskell.
+ Reworked unknownCommand and rawLaTeXInline: when not in "parse raw"
mode, these parsers simply strip off the command part and allow
the arguments to be parsed normally. So, for example,
\blorg{\emph{hi}} will be parsed as Emph "hi" rather than
Str "{\\emph{hi}}".
+ Parse lhs "code" environments as verbatim.
Refactored parsers for verbatim environments.
+ Removed specialEnvironment parser.
+ parse '{}', if present, after \textless, \textgreater,
\textbar, \textbackslash, \ldots.
+ Parse unescaped special characters verbatim rather than
changing them to spaces. This way arguments of unknown
commands will appear in braces.
* Parse raw ConTeXt environments as TeX in markdown reader.
Resolves Issue #73.
* Moved BlockWrapper and wrappedBlocksToDoc from ConTeXt writer to Shared.
* Made some structural changes to parsing of raw LaTeX environments.
Previously there was a special block parser for LaTeX environments.
It returned a Para element containing the raw TeX inline. This has
been removed, and the raw LaTeX environment parser is now used in the
rawLaTeXInline parser. The effect is exactly the same, except that we
can now handle consecutive LaTeX and ConTeXt environments not separated
by spaces. This new flexibility is required by the example in
Issue #73:
\placeformula \startformula
L_{1} = L_{2}
API change: The LaTeX reader now exports rawLaTeXEnvironment' (which
returns a string) rather than rawLaTeXEnvironment (which returns a block
element). This is more likely to be useful in other applications.
* Use \textsubscr instead of \textsubscript for LaTeX subscript macro.
\textsubscript conflicts with a definition in the memoir class.
Resolves Issue #65.
* Removed unneeded space after "\\item" in LaTeX and ConTeXt output.
* Added amsmath package to default LaTeX header. Resolves Issue #48.
* Added \setupitemize[autointro] to ConTeXt header, to prevent orphaned
list introduction lines.
* Changed Float to Double in definition of Table element.
(Double is more efficient in GHC.)
* Fixed bug in Markdown parser: regular $s triggering math mode.
For example: "shoes ($20) and socks ($5)."
The fix consists in two new restrictions:
+ the $ that ends a math span may not be directly followed by a digit.
+ no blank lines may be included within a math span.
Thanks to Joseph Reagle for noticing the bug.
* Use Data.List's 'intercalate' instead of custom 'joinWithSep'.
Removed 'joinWithSep' from Text.Pandoc.Shared.
* Updated README and man pages. Acknowledge contributors in README.
Added paragraph to README about producing S5 with separate CSS/javascript.
* Updated INSTALL to reflect new build system (including configuration
options) and document new dependencies. Added note to INSTALL that
Cabal >= 1.2 is required for build. Resolves Issue #74.
* Fixed some haddock documentation errors.
* Small fix to markdown2pdf man page: only input needs to be piped through iconv.
pandoc (0.46) unstable; urgency=low
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Made -H, -A, and -B options cumulative: if they are specified
multiple times, multiple files will be included.
* Added optional HTML sanitization using a whitelist.
When this option is specified (--sanitize-html on the command line),
unsafe HTML tags will be replaced by HTML comments, and unsafe HTML
attributes will be removed. This option should be especially useful
for those who want to use pandoc libraries in web applications, where
users will provide the input.
+ Main.hs: Added --sanitize-html option.
+ Text.Pandoc.Shared: Added stateSanitizeHTML to ParserState.
+ Text.Pandoc.Readers.HTML:
- Added whitelists of sanitaryTags and sanitaryAttributes.
- Added parsers to check these lists (and state) to see if a given
tag or attribute should be counted unsafe.
- Modified anyHtmlTag and anyHtmlEndTag to replace unsafe tags
with comments.
- Modified htmlAttribute to remove unsafe attributes.
- Modified htmlScript and htmlStyle to remove these elements if
+ Modified README and man pages to document new option.
* Improved handling of email addresses in markdown and reStructuredText.
Consolidated uri and email address parsers. (Resolves Issue #37.)
+ New emailAddress and uri parsers in Text.Pandoc.Shared.
- uri parser uses parseURI from Network.URI.
- emailAddress parser properly handles email addresses with periods
in them.
+ Removed uri and emailAddress parsers from Text.Pandoc.Readers.RST
and Text.Pandoc.Readers.Markdown.
* Markdown reader:
+ Fixed emph parser so that "*hi **there***" is parsed as a Strong
nested in an Emph. (A '*' is only recognized as the end of the
emphasis if it's not the beginning of a strong emphasis.)
+ Moved blockQuote parser before list parsers for performance.
+ Modified 'source' parser to allow backslash-escapes in URLs.
So, for example, [my](/url\(1\)) yields a link to /url(1).
Resolves Issue #34.
+ Disallowed links within links. (Resolves Issue #35.)
- Replaced inlinesInBalanced with inlinesInBalancedBrackets, which
instead of hard-coding the inline parser takes an inline parser
as a parameter.
- Modified reference and inlineNote to use inlinesInBalancedBrackets.
- Removed unneeded inlineString function.
- Added inlineNonLink parser, which is now used in the definition of
- Added inlineParsers list and redefined inline and inlineNonLink parsers
in terms of it.
- Added failIfLink parser.
+ Better handling of parentheses in URLs and quotation marks in titles.
- 'source' parser first tries to parse URL with balanced parentheses;
if that doesn't work, it tries to parse everything beginning with
'(' and ending with ')'.
- source parser now uses an auxiliary function source'.
- linkTitle parser simplified and improved, under assumption that it
will be called in context of source'.
+ Make 'block' conditional on strictness state, instead of using
failIfStrict in block parsers. Use a different ordering of parsers
in strict mode (raw HTML block before paragraph) for performance.
In non-strict mode use rawHtmlBlocks instead of htmlBlock.
Simplified htmlBlock, since we know it's only called in strict
+ Improved handling of raw HTML. (Resolves Issue #36.)
- Tags that can be either block or inline (e.g. <ins>) should
be treated as block when appropriate and as inline when
appropriate. Thus, for example,
should be treated as a paragraph with inline <ins> tags, while
should be treated as a paragraph within <ins> tags.
- Moved htmlBlock after para in list of block parsers. This ensures
that tags that can be either block or inline get parsed as inline
when appropriate.
- Modified rawHtmlInline' so that block elements aren't treated as
- Modified para parser so that paragraphs containing only HTML tags and
blank space are not allowed. Treat these as raw HTML blocks instead.
+ Fixed bug wherein HTML preceding a code block could cause it to
be parsed as a paragraph. The problem is that the HTML parser
used to eat all blank space after an HTML block, including the
indentation of the code block. (Resolves Issue #39.)
- In Text.Pandoc.Readers.HTML, removed parsing of following space
from rawHtmlBlock.
- In Text.Pandoc.Readers.Markdown, modified rawHtmlBlocks so that
indentation is eaten *only* on the first line after the HTML
block. This means that in
the foo won't be treated as a code block, but in
it will. This seems the right approach for least surprise.
* RST reader:
+ Fixed bug in parsing explicit links (resolves Issue #44).
The problem was that we were looking for inlines until a '<' character
signaled the start of the URL; so, if you hit a reference-style link,
it would keep looking til the end of the document. Fix: change
inline => (notFollowedBy (char '`') >> inline). Note that this won't
allow code inlines in links, but these aren't allowed in resT anyway.
+ Cleaned up parsing of reference names in key blocks and links.
Allow nonquoted reference links to contain isolated '.', '-', '_', so
so that strings like 'a_b_' count as links.
+ Removed unnecessary check for following link in str.
This is unnecessary now that link is above str in the definition of
* HTML reader:
+ Modified rawHtmlBlock so it parses </html> and </body> tags.
This allows these tags to be handled correctly in Markdown.
HTML reader now uses rawHtmlBlock', which excludes </html> and </body>,
since these are handled in parseHtml. (Resolves Issue #38.)
+ Fixed bug (emph parser was looking for <IT> tag, not <I>).
+ Don't interpret contents of style tags as markdown.
(Resolves Issue #40.)
- Added htmlStyle, analagous to htmlScript.
- Use htmlStyle in htmlBlockElement and rawHtmlInline.
- Moved "script" from the list of tags that can be either block or
inline to the list of block tags.
+ Modified rawHtmlBlock to use anyHtmlBlockTag instead of anyHtmlTag
and anyHtmlEndTag. This fixes a bug in markdown parsing, where
inline tags would be included in raw HTML blocks.
+ Modified anyHtmlBlockTag to test for (not inline) rather than
directly for block. This allows us to handle e.g. docbook in
the markdown reader.
* LaTeX reader: Properly recognize --parse-raw in rawLaTeXInline.
Updated LaTeX reader test to use --parse-raw.
* HTML writer:
+ Modified rules for automatic HTML header identifiers to
ensure that identifiers begin with an alphabetic character.
The new rules are described in README. (Resolves Issue #33.)
+ Changed handling of titles in HTML writer so you don't get
"titleprefix - " followed by nothing.
* ConTeXt writer: Use wrappers around Doc elements to ensure proper
spacing. Each block element is wrapped with either Pad or Reg.
Pad'ed elements are guaranteed to have a blank line in between.
* RST writer:
+ Refactored RST writer to use a record instead of a tuple for state,
and to include options in state so it doesn't need to be passed as
a parameter.
+ Use an interpreted text role to render math in restructuredText.
See for the

pandoc (0.45) unstable; urgency=low
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Simplified parsing of reference keys and notes in markdown and RST
readers: The Reference data structure from Text.Pandoc.Shared is no
longer needed, since referenceKey and noteBlock parses return strings
(as many blank lines as were occupied by the key or note) and update
state themselves. getPosition and setPosition are now used to ensure
that error messages will give the correct line number. This yields
cleaner (and slightly faster) code, with more accurate parsing error
* Added new Math inline element:
+ Markdown and LaTeX readers now convert TeX math into Math elements,
not TeX.
+ This allows math to be treated differently from raw TeX in output.
TeX elements are no longer printed in output formats other than
Markdown, LaTeX, and ConTeXt. But Math elements are always printed.
* New default handling of math in writers:
+ New module Text.Pandoc.Readers.TeXMath exports readTeXMath, which
parses raw TeX math and outputs a string of Pandoc inlines that
tries to render it as far as possible using unicode characters,
lapsing into literal TeX when needed.
+ readTeXMath is now used for default HTML output in HTML, S5, RTF,
and Docbook, if no other method for displaying math in HTML is
specified. Enclosing $'s are no longer printed by default.
+ By default, math is put inside <span class="math">. This way it can be
distinguished from the surrounding text, e.g. put in a different
* New --gladtex and --mimetex options for display of math in HTML:
+ If --gladtex is specified, math is output between <eq> tags, so
it can be processed by gladTeX.
+ If --mimetex is specified, math is put in <img> tags with a link
to the mimetex CGI script (or any other script that takes TeX math
as input and outputs an image). The URL of the script may be
specified, but defaults to /cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi.
+ HTMLMathMethod structure in WriterOptions keeps track of how to
display math in HTML output.
+ Updated README with a description of the four options for displaying
math in HTML.
* HTML reader:
+ Fixed bug: parser for minimized attributes should not swallow
trailing spaces.
+ Simplified HTML attribute parsing.
+ Changed parsing of code blocks in HTML reader: <code> tag is no
longer needed. <pre> suffices. All HTML tags in the code block
(e.g. for syntax highlighting) are skipped, because they are not
portable to other output formats. A <code>...</code> block not
surrounded by <pre> now counts as inline HTML, not a code block.
+ Remove just one leading and one trailing newline from contents of
<pre>...</pre> in codeBlock parser.
* Markdown reader:
+ Removed support for box-style block quotes.
+ Require space before title in links and references.
This fixes a bug in parsing URLs like http://silly/url(withparen).
+ Improved and simplified setextHeader parser.
+ Fixed logic in smart quote parsing, adding some needed 'try'
+ Fixed smart quote parsing so that unicode characters 8216 and 8217
are recognized as single quotes, and 8220 and 8221 as double quotes.
* RST reader:
+ Fixed bug in parsing of code blocks. Previously a full tab indent
was required, but RST allows code to be indented any amount.
Resolves Issue #27.
+ Allow field lists to be indented.
+ Parse the contents of field lists instead of treating as a raw string.
+ Represent field lists as definition lists instead of blockquotes.
+ Fixed bug in which metadata would be overridden if the document
contained multiple field lists.
+ Parse fields associated with '.. image::' blocks, and use 'alt'
field, if given, for image alt and title attributes.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Modified specialChar so that '"' characters are parsed.
+ Fixed a bug in parsing of \[ \] math blocks (thanks to Mark Kalderon).
* HTML writer:
+ Changes in handling of math (see above).
+ Don't produce HTML for table of contents if there are
no headers. (This would be an empty list, which is invalid XHTML.)
* Markdown writer:
+ Don't print title attribute if title is empty. (This differs from
the behavior of, and agrees with PHP Markdown. But John
Gruber has indicated that he prefers this behavior.) Adjusted test
suite accordingly.
+ Fixed incorrect line wrapping in paragraphs including hard line
breaks. Resolves Issue #25.
+ Fixed bug in markdown writer: If an ordered list item began with
a marker greater than 3 characters in width, and the item took more
than one line, it would appear on the line after the list marker,
My list item.
Now it works as follows:
(12) My list item.
* RST writer
+ Fixed bug in RST writer's handling of ordered lists. Previously,
list items with multiple lines would not always line up with
single-line list items. Now, list items are nested the length of
the list marker + 1. This looks better and ensures that list items
all line up. (Note that list markers are padded to the length of
the longest list marker in the series.)
+ Use 3-space indent for unordered lists.
+ If label for a link reference contains a colon, surround it by `
signs so it won't be interpreted as the end of the link label.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Cleaner output for footnotes. Footnotes now always begin on a new
line, and the final } is on a line by itself only when it needs to
be (i.e. only when the note ends with a Verbatim environment).
+ Added writer options to state, so state doesn't need to be passed as
a parameter.
+ Text wrapping now provided, using wrapTeXIfNeeded.
* ConTeXt writer: many improvements for more idiomatic ConTeXt output
(thanks to Idris Samawi Hamid for suggestions).
+ PrettyPrint module now used for output.
+ Writer options are now in state, so they don't have to be passed as
a parameter.
+ Text wrapping now provided, using wrapTeXIfNeeded.
+ Better treatment of footnotes: footnotes are always on lines by
themselves, and the final } is on a line by itself only when
it needs to be (after \stoptyping).
+ Use \subject, \subsubject, ... or \section, \subsection, ... for headings,
depending on whether --number-sections option is selected.
+ Extra blank line inserted after \stopitemize
+ Use new, "official" definition of blockquote environment. Also, use
blank line after \startblockquote to balance blank line at the end.
+ Both itemized and enumerated lists are now generated using
\start-stopitemize, with appropriate options. Removed definitions
of ltxenum and ltxitem, which are no longer needed. Provided
defaults for itemized lists in the preamble. State keeps track of
ordered list level, so that when default numbering is specified,
the appropriate scheme can be used.
+ Changed \useurl to \useURL.
+ Changed link color from red to blue.
+ Use \subsubsubsubsection etc., since these are supported
(up to at least sub x 5).
* Text.Pandoc.Shared:
+ Save and restore position in parseFromString, so that accurate
error messages can be given.
+ Improved efficiency of romanNumeral parser.
+ Added wrappedTeX and wrapTeXIfNeeded functions. These ensure
that footnotes occur on lines by themselves (to make them
easier to see and move) and do not screw up line wrapping.
* Text.Pandoc.UTF8: modified fromUTF8 to strip out the BOM
if present. Windows Notepad and other applications insert a
BOM at the beginning of a UTF8 file.
* Main.hs (tabFilter): Treat '\r' at end of line as newline (in
addition to "\r\n" and '\n').
* Added a writer option for wrapped text and a command-line option
'--no-wrap', which disables text wrapping and minimizes whitespace
in HTML. (Resolves Issue #26.)
+ Added support for '--no-wrap' to Main.hs.
+ Added wrapIfNeeded function to Text.Pandoc.Shared.
+ Use wrapIfNeeded instead of wrapped in the RST, Man, Docbook, and
Markdown writers.
+ Added render and renderFragment helpers to HTML writer.
* Modified html2markdown to run tidy only if the HTML cannot be
parsed. Previously html2markdown piped all input through tidy
before passing it to pandoc. This caused problems on certain pages
(e.g. which have well-formed
XHTML that causes tidy to choke. The solution is to pipe through
tidy only if pandoc cannot parse the input by itself. This means
that a temp file is now always used, even when input comes from a
local file or standard input.
* Removed 'version' constant from Main.hs; added 'pandocVersion' to
Text.Pandoc library.
* pandoc.cabal:
+ Modified to work with GHC 6.8 and Cabal configurations. (For GHC
6.8, pretty and containers must be added to Build-Depends, and it
is desirable to use the -O2 compiler option.) Cabal configurations
allows one to select options depending on the compiler version.
For GHC 6.6, the splitBase option can be disabled.
+ pandoc.cabal.ghc66 is provided for users with older versions of
Cabal, which do not support configurations.
+ Use Ghc-Prof-Options to ensure that '-auto-all' is used when
'--enable-(executable|library)-profiling' is specified. Updated
PROFILING instructions accordingly.
* Makefile:
+ Makefile now checks GHC version. If GHC is 6.6, pandoc.cabal.ghc66
is copied to pandoc.cabal, and the old pandoc.cabal is copied
to pandoc.cabal.orig. Otherwise, pandoc.cabal is copied to
pandoc.cabal.orig but otherwise unmodified. This way, the Makefile
will work properly with either GHC 6.6 or 6.8.
+ Changed BUILDCONF to point to dist/setup-config, not .setup-config.
This is where current versions of Cabal put it.
+ Added $(BUILDCMD) target, so setup doesn't get compiled every time.
+ Removed dependency of templates on ./templates, which is circular
now that templates is a subdirectory of the top-level.
* MacPorts Portfile:
+ Modified to install the pandoc library in addition to programs.
+ Installation must be done manually rather than using Makefile's
+ Note that the library must be registered in the activate phase,
after the library files have been copied out of the destroot.
Cabal generates a '' script that will do this.
* debian/control: Added libghc6-network-dev, libghc6-xhtml-dev, and
libghc6-mtl-dev as dependencies for libghc6-pandoc-dev.
Closes: #445235
* debian/rules: Converted to UTF-8.
* Changed pandoc home page to
* Updated ASCIIMathML.js to latest version.
* Directory structure:
+ Moved everything from src into the top-level directory.
+ Changed references to source directory in Makefile and
+ Moved ASCIIMathML.js, headers, and ui into templates directory.
+ Modified to reflect new paths.

* Makefile: Fixed the issue of having two copies of the library
documentation under some usage scenarios.
* Replaced 'ghc' with '$(GHC)' in Makefile, and made GHC
and GHC_PKG configurable through the environment, to support
unusual ghc installations. For example:
GHC=/opt/ghc/bin/ghc GHC_PKG=/opt/ghc/bin/ghc-pkg make

[ John MacFarlane ]
* Fixed bug in HTML writer: when --toc was used, anchors were put around
headers, which is invalid XHTML (block content within inline element).
Now the anchors are put inside the header tags. Resolves Issue #23.
* Added xmlns attribute to html element in html writer tests.
This attribute is added by more recent versions of the
xhtml library (>= 3000), and is required for valid XHTML.
[ Recai Oktaş ]
* On configure, compile 'Setup.hs' to 'setup' and use 'setup' as the build
command instead of 'runhaskell', which, on some platforms (such as s390,
alpha, m68k), throws the following error:
runhaskell Setup.hs configure --prefix=/usr
ghc-6.6.1: not built for interactive use
This causes a serious FTBFS bug. Closes: #440668.

pandoc (0.43) unstable; urgency=low
[ John MacFarlane ]
* The focus of this release is performance. The markdown parser
is about five times faster than in 0.42, based on benchmarks
with the TextMate manual.
* Main.hs: Replaced CRFilter and tabFilter with single function
tabFilter, which operates on the whole string rather than breaking
it into lines, and handles dos-style line-endings as well as tabs.
* Added separate LaTeX reader and native reader tests; removed
round-trip tests.
* Text.Pandoc.Shared:
+ Removed tabsToSpaces and tabsInLine (they were used only in Main.hs.)
+ General code cleanup (to elimante warnings when compiling with -Wall.)
+ Added 'wrapped' function, which helps wrap text into paragraphs,
using the prettyprinting library.
+ Rewrote charsInBalanced and charsInBalanced'.
- Documented restriction: open and close must be distinct characters.
- Rearranged options for greater efficiency.
- Bug fix: Changed inner call to charsInBalanced inside
charsInBalanced' to charsInBalanced'.
+ anyLine now requires that the line end with a newline (not eof).
This is a harmless assumption, since we always add newlines to the
end of a block before parsing with anyLine, and it yields a 10% speed
+ Removed unnecessary 'try' in anyLine.
+ Removed unneeded 'try' from romanNumeral parser.
+ Use notFollowedBy instead of notFollowedBy' in charsInBalanced.
+ Removed unneeded 'try' in parseFromString.
+ Removed unneeded 'try' from stringAnyCase. (Now it behaves
like 'string'.)
+ Changed definition of 'enclosed' in Text.Pandoc.Shared so that
'try' is not automatically applied to the 'end' parser. Added
'try' in calls to 'enclosed' where needed. Slight speed increase.
* Writers:
+ Replaced individual wrapping routines in RST, Man, and Markdown
writers with 'wrapped' from Text.Pandoc.Shared.
+ Rewrote LaTeX writer to use the prettyprinting library,
so we get word wrapping, etc.
+ Modified latex writer tests for new latex writer using prettyprinter.
+ Fixed bug in LaTeX writer: autolinks would not cause
'\usepackage{url}' to be put in the document header. Also, changes
to state in enumerated list items would be overwritten.
+ In Markdown writer, escape paragraphs that begin with ordered list
markers, so they don't get interpreted as ordered lists.
* Text.Pandoc.Reades.LaTeX:
+ Fixed bug in LaTeX reader, which wrongly assumed that the roman
numeral after "enum" in "setcounter" would consist entirely of
"i"s. 'enumiv' is legitimate.
+ LaTeX command and environment names can't contain numbers.
+ Rearranged order of parsers in inline for slight speed improvement.
+ Added '`' to special characters and 'unescapedChar'.
* Text.Pandoc.Readers.RST:
+ Removed unneeded try's in RST reader; also minor code cleanup.
+ Removed tabchar.
+ Rearranged parsers in inline (doubled speed).
* Text.Pandoc.Readers.Markdown:
+ Skip notes parsing if running in strict mode. (This yields a nice
speed improvement in strict mode.)
+ Simplify autolink parsing code, using Network.URI to test for
URIs. Added dependency on network library to debian/control and
+ More perspicuous definition of nonindentSpaces.
+ Removed unneeded 'try' in 'rawLine'.
+ Combined linebreak and whitespace into a new whitespace parser, to
avoid unnecessary reparsing of space characters.
+ Removed unnecessary 'try' in 'codeBlock', 'ellipses', 'noteMarker',
'multilineRow', 'dashedLine', 'rawHtmlBlocks'.
+ Use lookAhead in parsers for setext headers and definition lists
to see if the next line begins appropriately; if not, don't waste
any more time parsing.
+ Don't require blank lines after code block. (It's sufficient to
end code block with a nonindented line.)
+ Changed definition of 'emph': italics with '_' must not
be followed by an alphanumeric character. This is to help
prevent interpretation of e.g. [LC_TYPE]: my_type as
+ Improved in referenceLink: the two parts
of a reference-style link may be separated by one space, but not
more... [a] [link], [not] [a link].
+ Fixed markdown inline code parsing so it better accords with the marker for the end of the code section is a clump
of the same number of `'s with which the section began, followed
by a non-` character. So, for example,
` h ``` i ` -> <code>h ``` i</code>.
+ Split 'title' into 'linkTitle' and 'referenceTitle', since the
rules are slightly different.
+ Rewrote 'para' for greater efficiency.
+ Rewrote link parsers for greater efficiency.
+ Removed redundant 'referenceLink' in definition of inline (it's
already in 'link').
+ Refactored escapeChar so it doesn't need 'try'.
+ Refactored hrule for performance in Markdown reader.
+ More intelligent rearranging of 'inline' so that most frequently
used parsers are tried first.
+ Removed tabchar parser, as whitespace handles tabs anyway.
* Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences:
+ Refactored.
+ Removed unnecessary 'try's for a speed improvement.
+ Removed unnecessary '&' and ';' from the entity table.
* Build process:
+ Makefile: Get VERSION from cabal file, not Main.hs.
+ Modified MacPorts Portfile:
- Depend on haddock
- Build and install libraries and library documentation in
addition to pandoc executable
- Added template item for md5 sum in
- Incorporated changes from MacPorts repository (r28278).
+ FreeBSD port: Don't try to generate distinfo in Makefile.
It can be made using 'make makesum' in FreeBSD.
+ Make both freebsd and macports targets depend on tarball.
* Website and documentation:
+ Updated INSTALL instructions.
+ Added pandocwiki demo to website.
+ Removed local references to Portfile, since pandoc is now in the
MacPorts repository.

[ John MacFarlane ]
* Main.hs: Use utf8 conversion on the extra files loaded with
the -H, -C, -B, and -A options. This fixes problems with unicode
characters in these files.
* Exposed Text.Pandoc.ASCIIMathML, since it is imported in
Text.Pandoc.Readers.HTML and without it we get a linking error when
using the library.
