After 8 months (!) it's finally out: rst2pdf 0.10 ready for downloading from its homepage.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, rst2pdf lets you create PDF files from a simple, very lightly marked pure text format called restructured text and is the easiest way to create nice documentation for your free software project and more!
