Released rst2pdf 0.10!

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!

Here is the manual which is created using rst2pdf itself from this.

And here's a (maybe partial) list of the changes, which should convince you that you really want this version:

  • Issue 87: Table headers can be repeated in each page (thanks to Yasushi Masuda)
  • Issue 93: Line number support for code blocks (:linenos: true)

  • Issue 107: Support localized directives/roles (example: sommaire instead of contents)
  • Issue 112: Fixed crash when processing empty list items
