Publish PDF 2.2.26 and Wikibook Server 1.1.beta-6 released

These releases add further options for authors to customise book layout.

For the Publish PDF library:

  • add support for a (:rights: value:) page text variable that modifies the default copyright class="cc" (includes changes to the latexpublishbook skin); example usage:
    • (:rights: none:) produces an “All rights reserved” notice
    • (:rights: gfdl:) produces a “Some rights reserved: GFDL” notice
    • (:rights: cc by-nd:) produces a “Some rights reserved: CC BY-ND” notice
    • (:rights: none "Don't even think of copying this book." :) produces “All rights reserved: Don’t even think of copying this book.”
  • add support for a (:cfloat: Label:) page text variable that modifies the default label for custom floats (includes changes to the Site.FloatTemplate); example usage:
    • (:cfloat: Exercise:) produces a custom float label “Exercise” and the contents heading “List of Exercises”
    • (:cfloat: Exercise "Reader Exercises":) produces a custom float label “Exercise” and the contents heading “Reader Exercises”
  • fix a bug that occurs if [[<<]] markup starts the line immediately following a list
  • interpret \\\\ (double break) on a line by itself as an “invisible horizontal rule” — the paragraph after the break will not be indented (cf., ---- horizontal rule markup)
  • tidy the caption on centered images produced using =|Attach:image.ext"alt text" markup

For the Wikibook PDF server:

  • add support for printing the new rights options on the title verso page
  • add support for the new invisible horizontal rule interpretation
  • improve treatment of images with %rframe% markup and wrapfloat=on so that tall images are narrower than wide images
  • add prologue and epilogue to the list of allowed chapter kinds

These changes have been documented in the Book Guide.
