2.1.2 released: minor fixes and prepare for citations support

This version includes minor updates and bug fixes:

  • add support for bibliographies, if we can get the pdf side to work
    • this is disabled by default — the HTML side works, but not the pdf
  • add today’s date option to wikiform date fields and authorplain option
  • add wikiform features needed for citation forms

Once we complete the citations support, Wikipublisher will move into maintenance (bug fixes and minor enhancements) mode.

Bug fixes in the current release

  • prevent php error if typesetting a trail which has no stops defined
  • improve smart quote handling of prime marks, such as 6′ 4″ — issue 00100
  • correct the (:typeset-trail:) handler’s use of the article template
  • fix vertical space errors introduced when PmWiki changed the behaviour of vspace

Features expected in the next release

  • start the process of testing Wikipublisher with the PmWiki 2.2 software series
  • add support for citations in pdf output (requires pdf server and dtd enhancements)
  • add support for appendices in typeset books
  • improve handling of Q: and A: markup (use run-in heads)

Bugs fixed in the next release

  • trap newlines in simple table cells and replace with ¶ marks — otherwise LATEX fails
  • fix problem if headings are used on a trail page
  • minor fix to cover the case of text on the same line as >>div<< markup
