rst2pdf 0.14 released!

It's my pleasure to announce that I just uploaded rst2pdf 0.14 to the site at http://rst2pdf.googlecode.com.

Rst2pdf is a program and a library to convert restructured text directly into PDF using Reportlab.

It supports True Type and Type 1 font embedding, most raster and vector image formats, source code highlighting, arbitrary text frames in a page, cascading stylesheets, the full restructured text syntax and much, much more.

It also includes a sphinx extension so you can use it to generate PDFs from documents built with Sphinx.

In case of problems, please report them in the Issue tracker (http://code.google.com/p/rst2pdf/issues/list) or the mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/rst2pdf-discuss)

This release fixes several bugs and adds some minor features compared to 0.13.2. Here are some of the changes:

  • Fixed Issue 197: Table borders were confusing.
  • Fixed Issue 297: styles from default.json leaked onto other syntax highlighting stylesheets.
  • Fixed Issue 295: keyword replacement in headers/footers didn't work if ###Page### and others was inside a table.
