2.1.0 released: adds support for wikibooks

This version starts the 2.1 cycle, to recognise the major addition for book publishing

  • bring pdf styles into line with the PmWiki 2.1.11 wikistyles code1
  • add support for print options on (:typeset-page:) and (:typeset-trail:) directives
  • to reduce comment spamming, (:wikilogbox:) limits the number of external links
  • add support for (:typeset-book:) markup — issue 00092
    • a book template that provides chapters of various styles, with optional aphorisms and other book elements2
    • choice of font sets and paragraph separator
    • for an example, see User Guide
  • add support for floating text styles — issue 00065
  • add support for typesetting Poetry
  • add hooks to enable download of raw LATEXissue 00082
  • add support for nesting 3 heading levels per page

Bug fixes in the current release

  • remove center and right styles from toc entries
  • change wikiform to use a $FmtPV variable for group suffixes
  • recognise the LATEX entity — issue 00091
  • adapt to PmWiki’s changed simple table handling
  • improve handling of advanced tables
  • improve handling of list spacing

Features expected in the next release

  • add support for nested div markup, introduced in PmWiki 2.1.12 — issue 00093

Bugs fixed in the next release

  • fix xml error in style attributes of images
  • fix xml error in advanced tables with cell attributes

1 each time wikistyles.php changes, we make a version for pdf that avoids hard-coded html tags and marks each style for later processing; PmWiki provides a version of wikistyles where all tag names are variables in 2.1.15 (↑)

2 the server can generate a bibliography, but this is not yet supported in wiki markup — see issue 00062 (↑)
