* #1234: Ignoring the string consists only of white-space characters.
Release 1.2 beta1 (released Mar 31, 2013)
Incompatible changes
* Removed ``sphinx.util.compat.directive_dwim()`` and
``sphinx.roles.xfileref_role()`` which were deprecated since version 1.0.
* PR#122: the files given in `latex_additional_files` now override TeX
files included by Sphinx, such as ``sphinx.sty``.
* PR#124: the node generated by `versionadded`,
`versionchanged` and `deprecated` directives now includes
all added markup (such as "New in version X") as child nodes, and no
additional text must be generated by writers.
* PR#99: the :rst:dir:`seealso` directive now generates admonition nodes instead
of the custom ``seealso`` node.
Features added
* Markup
- The :rst:dir:`toctree` directive and the ``toctree()`` template function now
have an ``includehidden`` option that includes hidden toctree entries (bugs
#790 and #1047). A bug in the ``maxdepth`` option for the ``toctree()``
template function has been fixed (bug #1046).
- PR#99: Strip down seealso directives to normal admonitions. This removes
their unusual CSS classes (admonition-see-also), inconsistent LaTeX
admonition title ("See Also" instead of "See also"), and spurious indentation
in the text builder.
* HTML builder
- #783: Create a link to full size image if it is scaled with width or height.
- #1067: Improve the ordering of the JavaScript search results: matches in titles
come before matches in full text, and object results are better categorized.
Also implement a pluggable search scorer.
- #1053: The "rightsidebar" and "collapsiblesidebar" HTML theme options now work
- Update to jQuery 1.7.1 and Underscore.js 1.3.1.
* Texinfo builder
- An "Index" node is no longer added when there are no entries.
- "deffn" categories are no longer capitalized if they contain capital
- ``desc_annotation`` nodes are now rendered.
- ``strong`` and ``emphasis`` nodes are now formatted like
``literal``\s. The reason for this is because the standard Texinfo markup
(``*strong*`` and ``_emphasis_``) resulted in confusing output due to the
common usage of using these constructs for documenting parameter names.
- Field lists formatting has been tweaked to better display
"Info field lists".
- ``system_message`` and ``problematic`` nodes are now formatted in a similar
fashion as done by the text builder.
- "en-dash" and "em-dash" conversion of hyphens is no longer performed in
option directive signatures.
- ``@ref`` is now used instead of ``@pxref`` for cross-references which
prevents the word "see" from being added before the link (does not affect
the Info output).
- The ``@finalout`` command has been added for better TeX output.
- ``transition`` nodes are now formatted using underscores ("_") instead of
asterisks ("*").
- The default value for the ``paragraphindent`` has been changed from 2 to 0
meaning that paragraphs are no longer indented by default.
- #1110: A new configuration value `texinfo_no_detailmenu` has been
added for controlling whether a ``@detailmenu`` is added in the "Top"
node's menu.
- Detailed menus are no longer created except for the "Top" node.
- Fixed an issue where duplicate domain indices would result in invalid
* LaTeX builder:
- PR#115: Add ``'transition'`` item in `latex_elements` for
customizing how transitions are displayed. Thanks to Jeff Klukas.
- PR#114: The LaTeX writer now includes the "cmap" package by default. The
``'cmappkg'`` item in `latex_elements` can be used to control this.
Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev.
- The ``'fontpkg'`` item in `latex_elements` now defaults to ``''``
when the :confval:`language` uses the Cyrillic script. Suggested by Dmitry
- The `latex_documents`, `texinfo_documents`, and
`man_pages` configuration values will be set to default values based
on the :confval:`master_doc` if not explicitly set in :file:``.
Previously, if these values were not set, no output would be generated by
their respective builders.
* Internationalization:
- Add i18n capabilities for custom templates. For example: The Sphinx
reference documentation in doc directory provides a ``sphinx.pot`` file with
message strings from ``doc/_templates/*.html`` when using ``make gettext``.
- PR#61,#703: Add support for non-ASCII filename handling.
* Other builders:
- Added the Docutils-native XML and pseudo-XML builders. See
:class:`XMLBuilder` and :class:`PseudoXMLBuilder`.
- PR#45: The linkcheck builder now checks ``#anchor``\ s for existence.
- PR#123, #1106: Add `epub_use_index` configuration value. If
provided, it will be used instead of `html_use_index` for epub
- PR#126: Add `epub_tocscope` configuration value. The setting
controls the generation of the epub toc. The user can now also include
hidden toc entries.
- PR#112: Add `epub_show_urls` configuration value.
* Extensions:
- PR#52: ``special_members`` flag to autodoc now behaves like ``members``.
- PR#47: Added :mod:`sphinx.ext.linkcode` extension.
- PR#25: In inheritance diagrams, the first line of the class docstring
is now the tooltip for the class.
* Command-line interfaces:
- PR#75: Added ``--follow-links`` option to sphinx-apidoc.
- #869: sphinx-build now has the option ``-T`` for printing the full
traceback after an unhandled exception.
- sphinx-build now supports the standard ``--help`` and ``--version`` options.
- sphinx-build now provides more specific error messages when called with
invalid options or arguments.
- sphinx-build now has a verbose option ``-v`` which can be repeated for
greater effect. A single occurrence provides a slightly more verbose output
than normal. Two or more occurrences of this option provides more detailed
output which may be useful for debugging.
* Locales:
- PR#74: Fix some Russian translation.
- PR#54: Added Norwegian bokmaal translation.
- PR#35: Added Slovak translation.
- PR#28: Added Hungarian translation.
- #1113: Add Hebrew locale.
- #1097: Add Basque locale.
- #1037: Fix typos in Polish translation. Thanks to Jakub Wilk.

* Optimizations:
- Speed up building the search index by caching the results of the word
stemming routines. Saves about 20 seconds when building the Python
- PR#108: Add experimental support for parallel building with a new
:option:`sphinx-build -j` option.
* PR#88: Added the "Sphinx Developer's Guide" (:file:`doc/devguide.rst`)
which outlines the basic development process of the Sphinx project.
* Added a detailed "Installing Sphinx" document (:file:`doc/install.rst`).
Bugs fixed

Release 1.0 (Jul 23, 2010)
Incompatible changes
* Support for domains has been added. A domain is a collection of
directives and roles that all describe objects belonging together,
e.g. elements of a programming language. A few builtin domains are
- Python
- C
- C++
- JavaScript
- reStructuredText
* The old markup for defining and linking to C directives is now
deprecated. It will not work anymore in future versions without
activating the :mod:`~sphinx.ext.oldcmarkup` extension; in Sphinx
1.0, it is activated by default.
* Removed support for old dependency versions; requirements are now:
- docutils >= 0.5
- Jinja2 >= 2.2
* Removed deprecated elements:
- ``exclude_dirs`` config value
- ``sphinx.builder`` module
Features added
* General:
- Added a "nitpicky" mode that emits warnings for all missing
references. It is activated by the :option:`sphinx-build -n` command-line switch
or the `nitpicky` config value.
- Added ``latexpdf`` target in quickstart Makefile.
* Markup:
- The `menuselection` and `guilabel` roles now
support ampersand accelerators.
- New more compact doc field syntax is now recognized: ``:param type
name: description``.
- Added ``tab-width`` option to `literalinclude` directive.
- Added ``titlesonly`` option to :rst:dir:`toctree` directive.
- Added the ``prepend`` and ``append`` options to the
`literalinclude` directive.
- #284: All docinfo metadata is now put into the document metadata, not
just the author.
- The `ref` role can now also reference tables by caption.
- The :dudir:`include` directive now supports absolute paths, which
are interpreted as relative to the source directory.
- In the Python domain, references like ``:func:`.name``` now look for
matching names with any prefix if no direct match is found.
* Configuration:
- Added `rst_prolog` config value.
- Added `html_secnumber_suffix` config value to control
section numbering format.
- Added `html_compact_lists` config value to control
docutils' compact lists feature.
- The `html_sidebars` config value can now contain patterns
as keys, and the values can be lists that explicitly select which
sidebar templates should be rendered. That means that the builtin
sidebar contents can be included only selectively.
- `html_static_path` can now contain single file entries.
- The new universal config value `exclude_patterns` makes the
old ``unused_docs``, ``exclude_trees`` and
``exclude_dirnames`` obsolete.
- Added `html_output_encoding` config value.
- Added the `latex_docclass` config value and made the
"twoside" documentclass option overridable by "oneside".
- Added the `trim_doctest_flags` config value, which is true
by default.
- Added `html_show_copyright` config value.
- Added `latex_show_pagerefs` and `latex_show_urls`
config values.
- The behavior of `html_file_suffix` changed slightly: the
empty string now means "no suffix" instead of "default suffix", use
``None`` for "default suffix".
* New builders:
- Added a builder for the Epub format.
- Added a builder for manual pages.
- Added a single-file HTML builder.
* HTML output:
- Inline roles now get a CSS class with their name, allowing styles to
