Assets 10
  • Text.Pandoc.App: split into several unexported submodules (Albert Krewinkel): Text.Pandoc.App.FormatHeuristics, Text.Pandoc.App.Opt, Text.Pandoc.App.CommandLineOptions, Text.Pandoc.App.OutputSettings. This is motivated partly by the desire to reduce recompilations when something is modified, since App previously depended on virtually every other module.

  • Text.Pandoc.Extensions

    • Semantically, gfm_auto_identifiers is now a modifier of auto_identifiers; for identifiers to be set, auto_identifiers must be turned on, and then the type of identifier produced depends on gfm_auto_identifiers and ascii_identifiers are set. Accordingly, auto_identifiers is now added to githubMarkdownExtensions (#5057).
    • Remove ascii_identifiers from githubMarkdownExtensions. GitHub doesn’t seem to strip non-ascii characters any more.
  • Text.Pandoc.Lua.Module.Utils (Albert Krewinkel)

    • Test AST object equality via Haskell (#5092). Equality of Lua objects representing pandoc AST elements is tested by unmarshalling the objects and comparing the result in Haskell. A new function equals which performs this test has been added to the pandoc.utils module.
    • Improve stringify. Meta value strings (MetaString) and booleans (MetaBool) are now converted to the literal string and the lowercase boolean name, respectively. Previously, all values of these types were converted to the empty string.
  • Text.Pandoc.Parsing: Remove Functor and Applicative constraints where Monad already exists (Alexander Krotov).

  • Text.Pandoc.Pretty: Don’t render BreakingSpace at end of line or beginning of line (#5050).

  • Text.Pandoc.Readers.Markdown

    • Fix parsing of citations, quotes, and underline emphasis after symbols. Starting with pandoc 2.4, citations, quoted inlines, and underline emphasis were no longer recognized after certain symbols, like parentheses (#5099, #5053).
    • In pandoc 2.4, a soft break after an abbreviation would be relocated before it to allow for insertion of a nonbreaking space after the abbreviation. This behavior is here reverted. A soft break after an abbreviation will remain, and no nonbreaking space will be added. Those who care about this issue should take care not to end lines with an abbreviation, or to insert nonbreaking spaces manually.
  • Text.Pandoc.Readers.FB2: Do not throw error for unknown elements in <body> (Alexander Krotov). Some libraries include custom elements in their FB2 files.

  • Text.Pandoc.Readers.HTML

    • Allow tfoot before body rows (#5079).
    • Parse <small> as a Span with class “small” (#5080).
    • Allow thead containing a row with td rather than th (#5014).
  • Text.Pandoc.Readers.LaTeX

    • Cleaned up handling of dimension arguments. Allow decimal points, preceding space.
    • Don’t allow arguments for verbatim, etc.
    • Allow space before bracketed options.
    • Allow optional arguments after \\ in tables.
    • Improve parsing of \tiny, \scriptsize, etc. Parse as raw, but know that these font changing commands take no arguments.
  • Text.Pandoc.Readers.Muse

    • Trim whitespace before parsing grid table cells (Alexander Krotov).
    • Add grid tables support (Alexander Krotov).
  • Text.Pandoc.Shared

    • For bibliography match Div with id refs, not class references. This was a mismatch between pandoc’s docx, epub, latex, and markdown writers and the behavior of pandoc-citeproc, which actually looks for a div with id refs rather than one with class references.
    • Exactly match GitHub’s identifier generating algorithm (#5057).
    • Add parameter for Extensions to uniqueIdent and inlineListToIdentifier (#5057). [API change] This allows these functions to be sensitive to the settings of Ext_gfm_auto_identifiers and Ext_ascii_identifiers, and allows us to use uniqueIdent in the CommonMark reader, replacing custom code. It also means that gfm_auto_identifiers can now be used in all formats.
  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.AsciiDoc

    • Use .+ as list markers to support nested ordered lists (#5087).
    • Support list number styles (#5089).
    • Render Spans using [#id .class]#contents# (#5080).
  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.CommonMark

    • Respect --ascii (#5043, quasicomputational).
    • Make sure --ascii affects quotes, super/subscript.
  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.Docx

    • Fix bookmarks to headers with long titles (#5091). Word has a 40 character limit for bookmark names. In addition, bookmarks must begin with a letter. Since pandoc’s auto-generated identifiers may not respect these constraints, some internal links did not work. With this change, pandoc uses a bookmark name based on the SHA1 hash of the identifier when the identifier isn’t a legal bookmark name.
    • Add bookmarks to code blocks (Nikolay Yakimov).
    • Add bookmarks to images (Nikolay Yakimov).
    • Refactor common bookmark creation code into a function (Nikolay Yakimov).
  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.EPUB: Handle calibre metadata (#5098). Nodes of the form

      <meta name="calibre:series" content="Classics on War and Politics"/>
    

    are now included from an epub XML metadata file. You can also include this information in your YAML metadata, like so:

      calibre:
       series: Classics on War and Policitics
    

    In addition, ibooks-specific metadata can now be included via an XML file. (Previously, it could only be included via YAML metadata, see #2693.)

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.HTML: Use plain " instead of &quot; outside of attributes.

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.ICML: Consolidate adjacent strings, inc. spaces. This avoids splitting up the output unnecessarily into separate elements.

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.LaTeX: Don’t emit [<+->] unless beamer output, even if writerIncremental is True (#5072).

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.Muse (Alexander Krotov).

    • Output tables as grid tables if they have multi-line cells.
    • Indent simple tables only on the top level.
    • Output tables with one column as grid tables.
    • Add support for --reference-location.
    • Internal improvements.
  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.OpenDocument: Fix list indentation (Nils Carlson, #5095). This was a regression in pandoc 2.4.

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.RTF: Fix warnings for skipped raw inlines.

  • Text.Pandoc.Writers.Texinfo: Add blank line before @menu section (#5055).

  • Text.Pandoc.XML: in toHtml5Entities, prefer shorter entities when there are several choices for a particular character.

  • data/abbreviations

    • Add additional abbreviations (Andrew Dunning) Many of these borrowed from the Chicago Manual of Style 10.42, ‘Scholarly abbreviations’.
  • Templates

    • Asciidoc template: add :lang: to title header is lang is set in metadata (#5088).
  • pandoc.cabal: Add cabal flag derive_json_via_th (Albert Krewinkel) Disabling the flag will cause derivation of ToJSON and FromJSON instances via GHC Generics instead of Template Haskell. The flag is enabled by default, as deriving via Generics can be slow (see #4083).

  • trypandoc:

    • Tweaked drop-down lists.
    • Put link to site in footer.
    • Preselect output format.
    • Update on change of in or out format.
    • Add man input format.
  • MANUAL.txt:

    • Fix outdated description of latex_macros extension.
    • Clarified placement of bibliography.
    • Added “A note on security.”
    • Fix note on curly brace syntx for locators.
    • Document new explicit syntax for citeproc locators.
    • Remove confusing cross-links for some extensions.
    • Don’t put pandoc in code ticks in heading.
    • Document that --ascii works for gfm and commonmark too.
    • Add man to --from options.
  • doc/customizing-pandoc.md: various improvements (Mauro Bieg).
