Release 7.1.0 (in development)
Incompatible changes
* #11412: Emit warnings on using a deprecated Python-specific index entry type
(namely, ``module``, ``keyword``, ``operator``, ``object``, ``exception``,
``statement``, and ``builtin``) in the :rst:dir:`index` directive, and
set the removal version to Sphinx 9. Patch by Adam Turner.
Features added
* #11415: Add a checksum to JavaScript and CSS asset URIs included within
generated HTML, using the CRC32 algorithm.
* :meth:`~sphinx.application.Sphinx.require_sphinx` now allows the version

* #11011: Allow configuring a line-length limit for object signatures, via
:confval:`maximum_signature_line_length` and the domain-specific variants.
If the length of the signature (in characters) is greater than the configured
limit, each parameter in the signature will be split to its own logical line.
This behaviour may also be controlled by options on object description
directives, for example :rst:dir:`py:function:single-line-parameter-list`.

Incompatible changes
* #7405: Removed the jQuery and underscore.js JavaScript frameworks.
These frameworks are no longer be automatically injected into themes from
Sphinx 6.0. If you develop a theme or extension that uses the
``jQuery``, ``$``, or ``$u`` global objects, you need to update your
JavaScript to modern standards, or use the mitigation below.
The first option is to use the sphinxcontrib.jquery_ extension, which has been
developed by the Sphinx team and contributors. To use this, add
``sphinxcontrib.jquery`` to the ``extensions`` list in ````, or call
``app.setup_extension("sphinxcontrib.jquery")`` if you develop a Sphinx theme
or extension.
The second option is to manually ensure that the frameworks are present.
To re-add jQuery and underscore.js, you will need to copy ``jquery.js`` and
``underscore.js`` from `the Sphinx repository`_ to your ``static`` directory,
and add the following to your ``layout.html``:
.. code-block:: html+jinja
{%- block scripts %}
<script src="{{ pathto('_static/jquery.js', resource=True) }}"></script>
<script src="{{ pathto('_static/underscore.js', resource=True) }}"></script>
{{ super() }}

* #6262: html theme: The style of field lists has changed in bizstyle theme
Release 2.0.0 (released Mar 29, 2019)
* LaTeX builder now depends on TeX Live 2015 or above.
* LaTeX builder (with ``'pdflatex'`` :confval:`latex_engine`) will process
Unicode Greek letters in text (not in math mark-up) via the text font and
will not escape them to math mark-up. See the discussion of the
``'fontenc'`` key of :confval:`latex_elements`; such (optional) support for
Greek adds, for example on Ubuntu xenial, the ``texlive-lang-greek`` and (if
default font set-up is not modified) ``cm-super(-minimal)`` as additional
Sphinx LaTeX requirements.
* LaTeX builder with :confval:`latex_engine` set to ``'xelatex'`` or to
``'lualatex'`` requires (by default) the ``FreeFont`` fonts,
which in Ubuntu xenial are provided by package ``fonts-freefont-otf``, and
e.g. in Fedora 29 via package ``texlive-gnu-freefont``.
* requests 2.5.0 or above
* The six package is no longer a dependency
* The sphinxcontrib-websupport package is no longer a dependency
* Some packages are separated to sub packages:
- sphinxcontrib.applehelp
- sphinxcontrib.devhelp
- sphinxcontrib.htmlhelp
- sphinxcontrib.jsmath
- sphinxcontrib.serializinghtml
- sphinxcontrib.qthelp
Incompatible changes
* Drop python 2.7 and 3.4 support
* Drop docutils 0.11 support
* Drop features and APIs deprecated in 1.7.x
* The default setting for :confval:`master_doc` is changed to ``'index'`` which
has been longly used as default of sphinx-quickstart.
* LaTeX: Move message resources to ``sphinxmessage.sty``
* LaTeX: Stop using ``\captions<lang>`` macro for some labels
* LaTeX: for ``'xelatex'`` and ``'lualatex'``, use the ``FreeFont`` OpenType
fonts as default choice (refs: #5645)
* LaTeX: ``'xelatex'`` and ``'lualatex'`` now use ``\small`` in code-blocks
(due to ``FreeMono`` character width) like ``'pdflatex'`` already did (due
to ``Courier`` character width). You may need to adjust this via
:confval:`latex_elements` ``'fvset'`` key, in case of usage of some other
OpenType fonts (refs: #5768)
* LaTeX: Greek letters in text are not escaped to math mode mark-up, and they
will use the text font not the math font. The ``LGR`` font encoding must be
added to the ``'fontenc'`` key of :confval:`latex_elements` for this to work
(only if it is needed by the document, of course).
* LaTeX: setting the :confval:`language` to ``'en'`` triggered ``Sonny`` option
of ``fncychap``, now it is ``Bjarne`` to match case of no language specified.
(refs: #5772)
* #5770: doctest: Follow :confval:`highlight_language` on highlighting doctest
block. As a result, they are highlighted as python3 by default.
* The order of argument for ``HTMLTranslator``, ``HTML5Translator`` and
``ManualPageTranslator`` are changed
* LaTeX: hard-coded redefinitions of ``\l@section`` and ``\l@subsection``
formerly done during loading of ``'manual'`` docclass get executed later, at
time of ``\sphinxtableofcontents``. This means that custom user definitions
from LaTeX preamble now get overwritten. Use ``\sphinxtableofcontentshook``
to insert custom user definitions. See :ref:`latex-macros`.
* quickstart: Simplify generated ````
* #4148: quickstart: some questions are removed. They are still able to specify
via command line options
* websupport: unbundled from sphinx core. Please use sphinxcontrib-websupport
* C++, the visibility of base classes is now always rendered as present in the
input. That is, ``private`` is now shown, where it was ellided before.
* LaTeX: graphics inclusion of oversized images rescales to not exceed
the text width and height, even if width and/or height option were used.
(refs: #5956)
* epub: ``epub_title`` defaults to the :confval:`project` option
* #4550: All tables and figures without ``align`` option are displayed to center
* #4587: html: Output HTML5 by default
* texinfo: image files are copied into ``name-figure`` directory
* Support for evaluating Python 2 syntax is deprecated. This includes
configuration files which should be converted to Python 3.
* The arguments of ``EpubBuilder.build_mimetype()``,
``EpubBuilder.build_container()``, ``EpubBuilder.bulid_content()``,
``EpubBuilder.build_toc()`` and ``EpubBuilder.build_epub()``
* The arguments of ``Epub3Builder.build_navigation_doc()``
* The config variables
- :confval:`html_experimental_html5_writer`
* The ``encoding`` argument of ``autodoc.Documenter.get_doc()``,
``autodoc.DocstringSignatureMixin._find_signature()``, and
``autodoc.ClassDocumenter.get_doc()`` are deprecated.

Features added
* #1618: The search results preview of generated HTML documentation is
reader-friendlier: instead of showing the snippets as raw reStructuredText
markup, Sphinx now renders the corresponding HTML. This means the Sphinx
extension `Sphinx: pretty search results`__ is no longer necessary. Note that
changes to the search function of your custom or 3rd-party HTML template might
overwrite this improvement.
* #4182: autodoc: Support :confval:`suppress_warnings`
* #5533: autodoc: :confval:`autodoc_default_options` supports ``member-order``
* #5394: autodoc: Display readable names in type annotations for mocked objects
* #5459: autodoc: :confval:`autodoc_default_options` accepts ``True`` as a value
* #1148: autodoc: Add :rst:dir:`autodecorator` directive for decorators
* #5635: autosummary: Add :confval:`autosummary_mock_imports` to mock external
libraries on importing targets
* #4018: htmlhelp: Add :confval:`htmlhelp_file_suffix` and
* #5559: text: Support complex tables (colspan and rowspan)
* LaTeX: support rendering (not in math, yet) of Greek and Cyrillic Unicode
letters in non-Cyrillic document even with ``'pdflatex'`` as
:confval:`latex_engine` (refs: #5645)
* #5660: The ``versionadded``, ``versionchanged`` and ``deprecated`` directives
are now generated with their own specific CSS classes
(``added``, ``changed`` and ``deprecated``, respectively) in addition to the
generic ``versionmodified`` class.
* #5841: apidoc: Add --extensions option to sphinx-apidoc
* #4981: C++, added an alias directive for inserting lists of declarations,
that references existing declarations (e.g., for making a synopsis).
* C++: add ``cpp:struct`` to complement ``cpp:class``.
* #1341 the HTML search considers words that contain a search term of length
three or longer a match.
* #4611: epub: Show warning for duplicated ToC entries
* #1851: Allow to omit an argument for :rst:dir:`code-block` directive. If
omitted, it follows :rst:dir:`highlight` or :confval:`highlight_language`
* #4587: html: Add :confval:`html4_writer` to use old HTML4 writer
* #6016: HTML search: A placeholder for the search summary prevents search
result links from changing their position when the search terminates. This
makes navigating search results easier.
* #5196: linkcheck also checks remote images exist
* #5924: githubpages: create CNAME file for custom domains when
:confval:`html_baseurl` set
* #4261: autosectionlabel: restrict the labeled sections by new config value;
Bugs fixed
* #1682: LaTeX: writer should not translate Greek unicode, but use textgreek
* #5247: LaTeX: PDF does not build with default font config for Russian
language and ``'xelatex'`` or ``'lualatex'`` as :confval:`latex_engine`
(refs: #5251)
* #5248: LaTeX: Greek letters in section titles disappear from PDF bookmarks
* #5249: LaTeX: Unicode Greek letters in math directive break PDF build
(fix requires extra set-up, see :confval:`latex_elements` ``'textgreek'`` key
and/or :confval:`latex_engine` setting)
* #5772: LaTeX: should the Bjarne style of fncychap be used for English also
if passed as language option?
* #5179: LaTeX: (lualatex only) escaping of ``>`` by ``\textgreater{}`` is not
enough as ``\textgreater{}\textgreater{}`` applies TeX-ligature
* LaTeX: project name is not escaped if :confval:`latex_documents` omitted
* LaTeX: authors are not shown if :confval:`latex_documents` omitted
* HTML: Invalid HTML5 file is generated for a glossary having multiple terms for
one description (refs: #4611)
* QtHelp: OS dependent path separator is used in .qhp file
* HTML search: search always returns nothing when multiple search terms are
used and one term is shorter than three characters

* C++, fix parsing of braced initializers.
* #6172: AttributeError is raised for old styled index nodes

2.0.0 final
* #6196: py domain: unexpected prefix is generated
* Stop to use ``SPHINX_TEST_TEMPDIR`` envvar
