pandoc (1.4.1)
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Text.Pandoc.Templates now exports getTemplate, which differs from
getDefaultTemplate in allowing the caller to select
whether to allow user overrides from the ~/.pandoc directory.
* Changed default of writerXeTeX to False.
* HTML writer: don't include empty UL if --toc but no sections.
Resolves Issue #199.
* Updated haddocks for changes in Meta type.
* 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.
* Makefile: specify --template explicitly when using pandoc.
Reason: pandoc may not yet have been installed, so the
templates may not be in the cabal data directory.
Resolves Issue #192.
* 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.

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.

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.

* 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.
* Markdown reader:
+ Added new rule for enhanced markdown ordered lists: if the list
marker is a capital letter followed by a period (including a
single-letter capital roman numeral), then it must be followed by
at least two spaces. The point of this is to avoid accidentally
treating people's initials as list markers: a paragraph might begin,
"B. Russell was an English philosopher," and this shouldn't be
treated as a list. Documented change in README.
+ Blocks that start with "p. " and a digit are no longer treated
as ordered lists (it's a page number).
+ Added a needed 'try' to listItem.
+ Removed check for a following setext header in endline.
A full test is too inefficient (doubles benchmark time), and the
substitute we had before is not 100% accurate.
+ Don't use Code elements for autolinks if --strict specified.
* LaTeX writer: When a footnote ends with a Verbatim environment, the
close } of the footnote cannot occur on the same line or an error occurs.
Fixed this by adding a newline before the closing } of every footnote.
* HTML writer:
+ Removed incorrect "{}" around style information in HTML tables.
Column widths now work properly in HTML.
+ If --strict option is specified (and --toc is not), don't include
identifiers in headers, for better Markdown compatibility.
* Build process:
+ Separated $(web_dest) and website targets.
+ In website, index.txt is now constructed from template
+ Added freebsd target to Markefile. This creates the freebsd Makefile
from, and creates distinfo. Removed Makefile and distinfo

+ Added macport target to Makefile. Portfile is built from template
+ Removed OSX package targets. (Too many difficulties involving

[ John MacFarlane ]
* Fixed bugs in HTML reader:
+ Skip material at end *only if* </html> is present (previously,
only part of the document would be parsed if an error was
found; now a proper error message is given).
+ Added new constant eitherBlockOrInline with elements that may
count either as block-level or as inline. Modified isInline and
isBlock to take this into account.
+ Modified rawHtmlBlock to accept any tag (even an inline tag):
this is innocuous, because rawHtmlBlock is tried only if a regular
inline element can't be parsed.
+ Added a necessary 'try' in definition of 'para'.
* Fixed bug in markdown ordered list parsing. The problem was that
anyOrderedListStart did not check for a space following the
ordered list marker. So in 'A.B. 2007' the parser would be
expecting a list item, but would not find one, causing an error.
Fixed a similar bug in the RST reader. Resolves Issue #22.
* Refactored RST and Markdown readers using parseFromString.
* LaTeX reader will now skip anything after \end{document}.
* Fixed blockquote output in markdown writer: previously, block
quotes in indented contexts would be indented only in the first
* Added note to INSTALL about variations in versions of the xhtml
library that can lead to failed tests (thanks to Leif LeBaron).

pandoc (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Added two new output formats: groff man pages and ConTeXt. By
default, output files with extensions ".ctx" and ".context" are
assumed to be ConTeXt, and output files with single-digit extensions
are assumed to be man pages.
* Enhanced ordered lists (documented in README, under Lists):
+ The OrderedList block element now stores information about
list number style, list number delimiter, and starting number.
+ The readers parse this information when possible.
+ The writers use this information to style ordered lists.
+ The enhancement can be disabled using the --strict option.
* Added support for tables (with a new Table block element). Two kinds
of tables are supported: a simple table with one-line rows, and a
more complex variety with multiline rows. All output formats are
supported, but only markdown tables are parsed at the moment. The
syntax is documented in README.
* Added support for definition lists (with a new DefinitionList block
element). All output and input formats are supported. The syntax is
documented in README.
* Added support for superscripts and subscripts (with new Superscript
and Subscript inline elements). All input and output
formats. The syntax is documented in README.
* Added support for strikeout (with a new Strikeout inline element).
All input and output formats are supported. Thanks to Bradley Kuhn,
who contributed a patch. The syntax is documented in README. Resolves
Issue #18.
* Added a --toc|--table-of-contents option. This causes an automatically
generated table of contents (or an instruction that creates one) to
be inserted at the beginning of the document. Not supported in S5,
DocBook, or man page writers.
* Modified the -m|--asciimathml option:
+ If an optional URL argument is provided, a link is inserted
instead of the contents of the ASCIIMathML.js script.
+ Nothing is inserted unless the document actually contains
LaTeX math.
* Removed Blank block element as unnecessary.
* Removed Key and Note blocks from the Pandoc data structure. All
links are now stored as explicit links, and note contents are
stored with the (inline) notes.
+ All link Targets are now explicit (URL, title) pairs; there
is no longer a 'Ref' target.
+ Markdown and RST parsers now need to extract data from key and
note blocks and insert them into the relevant inline elements.
Other parsers have been simplified, since there is no longer any need
to construct separate key and note blocks.
+ Markdown, RST, and HTML writers need to construct lists of
notes; Markdown and RST writers need to construct lists of link
references (when the --reference-links option is specified); and
the RST writer needs to construct a list of image substitution
references. All writers have been rewritten to use the State monad
when state is required.
+ Several functions (generateReference, keyTable,
replaceReferenceLinks, replaceRefLinksBlockList, and some auxiliaries
used by them) have been removed from Text.Pandoc.Shared, since
they are no longer needed. New functions and data structures
(Reference, isNoteBlock, isKeyBlock, isLineClump) have been
added. The functions inTags, selfClosingTag, inTagsSimple, and
inTagsIndented have been moved to the DocBook writer, since that
is now the only module that uses them. NoteTable is now exported
in Text.Pandoc.Shared.
+ Added stateKeys and stateNotes to ParserState; removed stateKeyBlocks,
stateKeysUsed, stateNoteBlocks, stateNoteIdentifiers, stateInlineLinks.
+ Added writerNotes and writerReferenceLinks to WriterOptions.
* Added Text.Pandoc module that exports basic readers, writers,
definitions, and utility functions. This should export everything
needed for most uses of Pandoc libraries. The haddock documentation
includes a short example program.
* Text.Pandoc.ASCIIMathML is no longer an exported module.
* Added Text.Pandoc.Blocks module to help in printing markdown
and RST tables. This module provides functions for working with
fixed-width blocks of text--e.g., placing them side by side, as
in a table row.
* Refactored to avoid reliance on Haskell's Text.Regex library, which
(a) is slow, and (b) does not properly handle unicode. This fixed
some strange bugs, e.g. in parsing S-cedilla, and improved performance.
+ Replaced 'gsub' with a general list function 'substitute'
that does not rely on Text.Regex.
+ Rewrote extractTagType in HTML reader so that it doesn't use
+ In Markdown reader, replaced email regex test with a custom email
autolink parser (autoLinkEmail). Also replaced selfClosingTag regex
with a custom function isSelfClosingTag.
+ Modified Docbook writer so that it doesn't rely on Text.Regex for
detecting 'mailto' links.
+ Removed escapePreservingRegex and reamped entity-handling
functions in Text.Pandoc.Shared and Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences to
avoid reliance on Text.Regex (see below on character reference
handling changes).
* Renamed Text.Pandoc.Entities as Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences.
* Changed handling of XML entities. Entities are now parsed (and unicode
characters returned) in the Markdown and HTML readers, rather than being
handled in the writers. In HTML and Docbook writers, UTF-8 is now used
instead of entities for characters above 128. This makes the HTML and
DocBook output much more readable and more easily editable.
+ Removed sgmlHexEntity, sgmlDecimalEntity, sgmlNamedEntity, and
sgmlCharacterEntity regexes from Text.Pandoc.Shared.
+ Renamed escapeSGMLChar to escapeCharForXML. Added escapeStringForXML.
Moved both functions to Text.Pandoc.Writers.Docbook.
+ Added characterReference parser to Text.Pandoc.CharacterReferences.
This parses a string and return a unicode character.
+ Rewrote decodeCharacterReferences to use the new parser instead of
+ Added new charRef parser for Markdown and HTML, which replaces the
old 'entity' parser. Added '&' as a special character in Markdown reader.
+ Modified HTML and Markdown readers to call decodeEntities on all raw
strings (e.g. authors, dates, link titles), to ensure that no
unprocessed entities are included in the native representation of
the document. (In the HTML reader, most of this work is done by a
change in extractAttributeName.)
+ In XML and Markdown output, escape unicode nonbreaking space as '&nbsp;',
since a unicode non-breaking space is impossible to distinguish visually
from a regular space. (Resolves Issue #3.)
+ Removed encodeEntitiesNumerical.
+ Use Data.Map for entityTable and (new) reverseEntityTable, for a
slight performance boost over the old association list.
+ Removed unneeded decodeEntities from 'str' parser in HTML and
Markdown readers.
* Text.Pandoc.UTF8: Renamed encodeUTF8 to toUTF8, decodeUTF8 to
fromUTF8, for clarity.
* Replaced old haskell98 module names replaced by hierarchical module
names, e.g. List by Data.List. Removed haskell98 from dependencies
in pandoc.cabal, and added mtl (needed for state monad). Substituted
xhtml for html.
* Refactored and cleaned up character escaping in writers, using
backslashEscapes and escapeStringUsing functions.
* Instead of adding "\n\n" to the end of an input string in Main.hs,
this is now done in the readers. This makes the libraries behave
the way you'd expect from the pandoc program. Resolves Issue #10.
* URLs and email addresses in autolinks are now typeset as Code.
* In Main.hs, changed putStr to putStrLn -- mainly because MacOS X
doesn't display the whole output unless there's a line ending.
* Major code cleanup in all modules, for greater consistency, concision,
and readability.
* HTML reader:
+ Fixed several bugs (extractTagType, attribute parsing).
+ Remove Null blocks in lists of blocks when possible.
+ Allow HTML comments as raw HTML inline.
* Markdown reader:
+ Ordered list items may no longer begin with uppercase letters, or
letters greater than 'n'. (This prevents first initials and page
reference, e.g. 'p. 400', from being parsed as beginning lists.)
Also, numbers beginning list items may no longer end with ')',
which is now allowed only after letters. Note: These changes
may cause documents to be parsed differently. Users should take
care in upgrading.
+ Changed autoLink parsing to conform better to's
behavior. <> is not treated as a link, but
<>, <>, and <>
+ Cleaned up handling of embedded quotes in link titles. Now these are
stored as a '"' character, not as '&quot;'.
+ Use lookAhead parser for the 'first pass' (looking for reference keys),
instead of parsing normally, then using setInput to reset input. This
yields a slight performance boost.
+ Fixed several bugs in smart quote recognition.
+ Fixed bug in indentSpaces (which didn't properly handle
cases with mixed spaces and tabs).
+ Consolidated 'text', 'special', and 'inline' into 'inline'.
+ Fixed bug which allowed URL and title to be separated by multiple blank
lines in links and reference keys. They can be on separate lines but
can't have blank lines between them.
+ Correctly handle bracketed text inside inline footnotes and links,using
new function inlinesInBalanced. Resolves Issue #14.
+ Fixed bug in footnotes: links in footnotes were not being
processed. Solution: three-stage parse. First, get all the
reference keys and add information to state. Next, get all the
notes and add information to state. (Reference keys may be needed
at this stage.) Finally, parse everything else.
+ Replaced named constants like 'emphStart' with literals.
+ Removed an extra occurance of escapedChar in definition of inline.
* RST reader:
+ Allow the URI in a RST hyperlink target to start on the line
after the reference key.
+ Added 'try' in front of 'string', where needed, or used a different
parser. This fixes a bug where ````` would not be correctly parsed as
a verbatim `.
+ Fixed slow performance in parsing inline literals in RST reader. The
problem was that ``#`` was seen by 'inline' as a potential link or image.
Fix: inserted 'notFollowedBy (char '`')' in link parsers.
Resolves Issue #8.
+ Use lookAhead instead of getInput/setInput in RST reader. Removed
unneeded getState call, since lookAhead automatically saves and
restores the parser state.
+ Allow hyperlink target URIs to be split over multiple lines, and
to start on the line after the reference. Resolves Issue #7.
+ Fixed handling of autolinks.
* LaTeX reader:
+ Replaced 'choice [(try (string ...), ...]' idiom with 'oneOfStrings',
for clarity.
+ Added clauses for tilde and caret. Tilde is \ensuremath{\sim}, and
caret is \^{}, not \^ as before.
+ Added parsing for \url.
+ Parse \texttt{} as code, provided there's nothing fancy inside.
* HTML writer:
+ Modified HTML writer to use the Text.XHtml library. This results
in cleaner, faster code, and it makes it easier to use Pandoc in
other projects, like wikis, which use Text.XHtml. Two functions are
now provided, writeHtml and writeHtmlString: the former outputs an
Html structure, the latter a rendered string. The S5 writer is also
changed, in parallel ways (writeS5, writeS5String).
+ The Html header is now written programmatically, so it has been
removed from the 'headers' directory. The S5 header is still
needed, but the doctype and some of the meta declarations have
been removed, since they are written programatically. This change
introduces a new dependency on the xhtml package.
+ Fixed two bugs in email obfuscation involving improper escaping
of '&' in the <noscript> section and in --strict mode. Resolves
Issue #9.
+ Fixed another bug in email obfuscation: If the text to be obfuscated
contains an entity, this needs to be decoded before obfuscation.
Thanks to thsutton for the patch. Resolves Issue #15.
+ Changed the way the backlink is displayed in HTML footnotes.
Instead of appearing on a line by itself, it now generally
appears on the last line of the note. (Exception: when the
note does not end with a Plain or Para block.) This saves space
and looks better.
+ Added automatic unique identifiers to headers:
- The identifier is derived from the header via a scheme
documented in README.
- WriterState now includes a list of header identifiers and a table
of contents in addition to notes.
- The function uniqueIdentifiers creates a list of unique identifiers
from a list of inline lists (e.g. headers).
- This list is part of WriterState and gets consumed by blockToHtml
each time a header is encountered.
+ Include CSS for .strikethrough class in header only if strikethrough
text appears in the document.
+ If the 'strict' option is specified, elements that do not appear in
standard markdown (like definition lists) are passed through as
raw HTML.
+ Simplified treatment of autolinks, using pattern matching instead of
* Markdown writer:
+ Links in markdown output are now printed as inline links by default,
rather than reference links. A --reference-links option has been added
that forces links to be printed as reference links. Resolves Issue #4.
+ Use autolinks when possible. Instead of [](,
use <>.
* LaTeX writer:
+ Rewrote to use the State monad. The preamble now includes only those
packages that are actually required, given the document's content.
Thus, for example, if strikeout is not used, ulem is not required.
Modified LaTeXHeader accordingly.
+ Modified LaTeX writer to insert '\,' between consecutive quotes.
+ Removed unused function tableRowColumnWidths.
+ Simplified code for escaping special characters.
+ Leave extra blank line after \maketitle.
+ Include empty '\author{}' when no author specified to avoid LaTeX
+ Include fancyvrb code in header only if needed -- that is, only
if there is actually code in a footnote.
+ Use \url{} for autolinks.
+ Include [mathletters] option in ucs package, so that basic unicode
Greek letters will work correctly.
* RST writer: Force blank line before lists, so that sublists will
be handled correctly.
* Docbook writer: Fixed a bug: email links with text, like
[foo](me@bar.baz), were being incorrectly treated as autolinks.
* Removed Text.ParserCombinators.Pandoc and moved all its functions to
* Text.Pandoc.Shared:
+ Added defaultWriterOptions.
+ Added writerTableOfContents to WriterOptions.
+ Added writerIgnoreNotes option to WriterOptions. This is needed
for processing header blocks for a table of contents, since notes on
headers should not appear in the TOC.
+ Added prettyprinting for native Table format.
+ Removed some unneeded imports.
+ Moved escape and nullBlock parsers from
Text.ParserCombinators.Pandoc, since the latter is for
general-purpose parsers that don't depend on Text.Pandoc.Definition.
+ Moved isHeaderBlock from Text.Pandoc.Writers.HTML.
+ Moved Element, headerAtLeast, and hierarchicalize from Docbook
writer, because HTML writer now uses these in constructing a table
of contents.
+ Added clauses for new inline elements (Strikeout, Superscript,
Subscript) to refsMatch.
+ Removed backslashEscape; added new functions escapeStringUsing and
+ Moved failIfStrict from markdown reader, since it is now used also
by the HTML reader.
+ Added a 'try' to the definition of indentSpaces.
+ In definition of 'reference', added check to make sure it's not a note
+ Added functions: camelCaseToHyphenated, toRomanNumeral,
anyOrderedListMarker, orderedListmarker, orderedListMarkers,
charsInBalanced', withHorizDisplacement, romanNumeral
+ Fixed a bug in the anyLine parser. Previously it would parse an empty
string "", but it should fail on an empty string, or we get an error
when it is used inside "many" combinators.
+ Removed followedBy' parser, replacing it with the lookAhead parser from
+ Added some needed 'try's before multicharacter parsers, especially in
'option' contexts.
+ Removed the 'try' from the 'end' parser in 'enclosed', so that
'enclosed' behaves like 'option', 'manyTill', etc.
+ Added lineClump parser, which parses a raw line block up to and
including any following blank lines.
+ Renamed parseFromStr to parseFromString.
+ Added a 'try' to the 'end' parser in 'enclosed'. This makes errors in
the use of 'enclosed' less likely. Removed some now-unnecessary 'try's
in calling code.
+ Removed unneeded 'try' in blanklines.
+ Removed endsWith function and rewrote calling functions to use
isSuffixOf instead.
+ Added >>~ combinator.
+ Fixed bug in normalizeSpaces: Space:Str "":Space should compress to
* Refactored; added separate tests for tables.
* Shell scripts:
+ Added -asxhtml flag to tidy in html2markdown. This will
perhaps help the parser, which expects closing tags.
+ Modified markdown2pdf to run pdflatex a second time if --toc or
--table-of-contents was specified; otherwise the table of
contents won't appear.
+ Modified markdown2pdf to print a helpful message if the 'ulem'
LaTeX package is required and not found.
* Changes to build process:
+ Dropped support for compilation with GHC 6.4. GHC 6.6 or higher
is now required.
+ Removed cabalize and The repository now contains
pandoc.cabal itself.
+ Pandoc.cabal has been changed to pandoc.cabal, because HackageDB
likes the cabal file to have the same name as the tarball.
+ Expanded and revised the package description in pandoc.cabal.
Revised the package synopsis.
+ The tarball built by 'make tarball' now contains files built from
templates (including man pages and shell scripts), so pandoc can
be built directly using Cabal tools, without preprocessing.
+ Executable binaries are now stripped before installing.
+ Man pages are now generated from markdown sources, using pandoc's
man page writer.
+ Use HTML version of README (instead of RTF) in Mac OS X installer.
+ Instead of testing for the existence of a pandoc symlink in build-exec,
use ln -f.
* Documentation:
+ Updated README and man pages with information on new features.
+ Updated INSTALL instructions with some useful clarifications and
+ Updated web content.
* Added FreeBSD port.
[ Recai Oktaş ]
* debian/control:
+ Changed pandoc's Build-Depends to include libghc6-mtl-dev and
libghc6-xhtml-dev. Removed libghc6-html-dev.
+ Suggest texlive-latex-recommended | tetex-extra instead of
tetex-bin. This brings in fancyvrb and unicode support.

pandoc (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
[ John MacFarlane ]
* Changes in pandoc options:
+ Allow options to follow or precede arguments.
+ Changed '--smartypants' to '--smart' and adjusted symbols accordingly.
+ Added '--strict' option.
+ Added '-o/--output' option.
+ Added '--dump-args' and '--ignore-args' options (for use in wrappers).
+ Modified '-v' and '-h' output to go to STDERR, not STDOUT, and return
error conditions. This is helpful for writing wrappers.
+ Added copyright message to '-v' output, modeled after FSF messages.
+ Reformatted usage message so that it doesn't wrap illegibly.
+ Removed extra blanks after '-h' and '-D' output.
* Added docbook writer.
* Added implicit setting of default input and output format based
on input and output filename extensions. These defaults are
overridden if explicit input and output formats are specified using
'-t', '-f', '-r', or '-w' options. Documented in pandoc(1) man page
* Allow ordered list items to begin with (single) letters, as well
as numbers. The list item marker may now be terminated either by
'.' or by ')'. This extension to standard markdown is documented
* Revised footnote syntax. (See README for full details.) The
'[^1]' format now standard in markdown extensions is supported,
as are inline footnotes with this syntax: '^[My note.]'.
The earlier footnote syntax '^(1)' is no longer supported.
* Improved HTML representation of footnotes. All footnotes
are now auto-numbered and appear in an ordered list at the
end of the HTML document. Since the default appearance is now
acceptable, the old footnote styles have been removed from the
HTML header.
* Bug fixes:
+ Fixed a serious bug in the markdown, LaTeX, and RST readers.
These readers ran 'runParser' on processed chunks of text to handle
embedded block lists in lists and quotation blocks. But then
any changes made to the parser state in these chunks was lost,
as the state is local to the parser. So, for example, footnotes
didn't work in quotes or list items. The fix: instead of calling
runParser on some raw text, use setInput to make it the input, then
parse it, then use setInput to restore the input to what it was
before. This is shorter and more elegant, and it fixes the problem.
+ Fixed bug in notFollowedBy' combinator (adding 'try' before
'parser'). Adjusted code that uses this combinator accordingly.
+ Fixed bug in RTF writer that caused improper indentation on
footnotes occurring in indented blocks like lists.
+ Fixed parsing of metadata in LaTeX reader. Now the title, author,
and date are parsed correctly. Everything else in the preamble
is skipped.
+ Modified escapedChar in LaTeX reader to allow a '\' at the end of a
line to count as escaped whitespace.
+ Modified LaTeX reader to produce inline links rather than reference
links. Otherwise, links in footnotes aren't handled properly.
+ Fixed handling of titles in links in Markdown reader, so that
embedded quotation marks are now handled properly.
+ Fixed Markdown reader's handling of embedded brackets in links.
+ Fixed Markdown reader so that it only parses bracketed material
as a reference link if there is actually a corresponding key.
+ Revised inline code parsing in Markdown reader to conform to
markdown standard. Now any number of `s can begin inline code,
which will end with the same number of `s. For example, to
have two backticks as code, write ``` `` ```. Modified Markdown
writer accordingly.
+ Fixed bug in text-wrapping routine in Markdown and RST writers.
Now LineBreaks no longer cause wrapping problems.
+ Supported hexadecimal numerical entity references as well as
decimal ones.
+ Fixed bug in Markdown reader's handling of underscores and other
inline formatting markers inside reference labels: for example,
in '[A_B]: /url/a_b', the material between underscores was being
parsed as emphasized inlines.
+ Changed Markdown reader's handling of backslash escapes so that
only non-alphanumeric characters can be escaped. Strict mode
follows in only allowing a select group of punctuation
characters to be escaped.
+ Modified HTML reader to skip a newline following a <br> tag.
Otherwise the newline will be treated as a space at the beginning
of the next line.
* Made handling of code blocks more consistent. Previously, some
readers allowed trailing newlines, while others stripped them.
Now, all readers strip trailing newlines in code blocks. Writers
insert a newline at the end of code blocks as needed.
* Modified readers to make spacing at the end of output more consistent.
* Minor improvements to LaTeX reader:
+ '\thanks' now treated like a footnote.
+ Simplified parsing of LaTeX command arguments and options.
commandArgs now returns a list of arguments OR options (in
whatever order they appear). The brackets are included, and
a new stripFirstAndLast function is provided to strip them off
when needed. This fixes a problem in dealing with \newcommand
and \newenvironment.
* Revised RTF writer:
+ Default font is now Helvetica.
+ An '\f0' is added to each '\pard', so that font resizing works
* Moved handling of "smart typography" from the writers to the Markdown
and LaTeX readers. This allows great simplification of the writers
and more accurate smart quotes, dashes, and ellipses. DocBook can
now use '<quote>'. The '--smart' option now toggles an option in
the parser state rather than a writer option. Several new kinds
of inline elements have been added: Quoted, Ellipses, Apostrophe,
EmDash, EnDash.
* Changes in HTML writer:
+ Include title block in header even when title is null.
+ Made javascript obfuscation of emails even more obfuscatory,
by combining it with entity obfuscation.
* Changed default ASCIIMathML text color to black.
* Test suite:
+ Added --strip-trailing-cr option to diff in, for
compatibility with Windows.
+ Added regression tests with footnotes in quote blocks and lists.
* Makefile changes:
+ osx-pkg target creates a Mac OS X package (directory). New osx
directory contains files needed for construction of the package.
+ osx-dmg target creates a compressed disk image containing the package.
+ win-pkg target creates Windows binary package.
+ tarball target creates distribution source tarball.
+ website target generates pandoc's website automatically, including
demos. New 'web' directory containts files needed for construction
of the website (which will be created as the 'pandoc' subdirectory
of 'web').
+ Makefile checks to see if we're running Windows/Cygwin; if so,
a '.exe' extension is added to each executable in EXECS.
* Removed all wrappers except markdown2pdf and html2markdown.
* Added new wrapper hsmarkdown, to be used as a drop-in replacement
for hsmarkdown calls pandoc with the '--strict'
option and disables other options.
* Added code to html2markdown that tries to determine the character
encoding of an HTML file, by parsing the "Content-type" meta tag.
+ If the encoding can't be determined, then if the content is local,
the local encoding is used; if it comes from a URL, UTF-8 is used
by default.
+ If input is from STDIN, don't try to determine character encoding.
+ Encoding can be specified explicitly using '-e' option.
* Improved warning messages in wrappers:
+ Print warning if iconv not available
+ More user-friendly error messages in markdown2pdf, when
pdflatex fails.
* Code cleanup:
+ Renamed 'Text/Pandoc/HtmlEntities' module to
'Text/Pandoc/Entities'. Also changed function names so as
not to be HTML-specific.
+ Refactored SGML string escaping functions from HTML and Docbook
writers into Text/Pandoc/Shared. (escapeSGML, stringToSGML)
+ Removed 'BlockQuoteContext' from ParserContext, as it isn't
used anywhere.
+ Removed splitBySpace and replaced it with a general, polymorphic
splitBy function.
+ Refactored LaTeX reader for clarity (added isArg function).
+ Converted some CR's to LF's in src/ui/default/print.css.
+ Added license text to top of source files.
+ Added module data for haddock to source files.
+ Reformatted code for consistency.
* Rewrote documentation and man pages. Split README into INSTALL
* Removed TODO, since we now maintain ToDo on the wiki.
* Made COPYRIGHT in top level a symlink to debian/copyright, to avoid
[ Recai Oktaş ]
* Revamped build process to conform to debian standards and created
a proper debian package. Closes: #391666.
* Modified build process to support GHC 6.6.
+ The package can still be compiled using GHC 6.4.2, though because
of dependencies the "make deb" target works only with GHC 6.6+.
+ The script 'cabalize' is used to create an appropriate
'Pandoc.cabal' from '', depending on the GHC and
Cabal versions.
* Refactored template processing (
* Modified wrapper scripts to make them more robust and portable.
To avoid code duplication and ensure consistency, wrappers are
generated via a templating system from templates in src/wrappers.
+ Wrappers now accept multiple filenames, when appropriate.
+ Spaces and tabs allowed in filenames.
+ getopts shell builtin is used for portable option parsing.
+ Improved html2markdown's web grabber code, making it more robust,
configurable and verbose. Added '-e', '-g' options.
