[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: asciidoc-8.2.7-1

Hash: SHA1

A new version of the asciidoc package, asciidoc 8.2.7-1, is now available
for download, replacing 8.2.6-1 as current.

This is a new upstream release, with upstream changes listed below.  See
also the package documentation in /usr/share/doc/asciidoc-8.2.7/.

AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing short documents, articles,
books and UNIX man pages. AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML and
DocBook markups using the asciidoc(1) command. AsciiDoc is highly
configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax and the backend output
markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be
customized and extended by the user.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'asciidoc' from
the 'Devel' category.

1. Version 8.2.7 (2008-07-04)

   See the [1]AsciiDoc Mercurial repository for a full list of changes.

   Additions and changes
     * Added dvi, ps and tex output format options to a2x(1).
     * Added --dblatex option to a2x(1) so dblatex(1) can be used to
       generate PDFs.
     * Added custom dblatex(1) configuration files (in distribution
       ./dblatex directory) which are used by a2x(1).
     * dblatex(1) is now used to generate the distributed PDF version of
       the AsciiDoc User Guide.
     * If you don't need a customized the link caption you can enter the
       http, https, ftp, file URLs and email addresses without any special
       macro syntax -- you get the links by just cutting and pasting URLs
       and emails addresses. This also makes it easier to open links
       directly form AsciiDoc source ( most editors allow you to open URLs
       directly). The Vim syntax highlighter has been updated to reflect
       these changes.
     * Highlighted source code paragraphs have been implemented -- it's a
       much more convenient way to enter short code examples (see [2]the
       online docs).
     * The source highlighter and music filter syntax has changed -- they
       now used the ListingBlock syntax customized with source and music
       style attribute values. This follows the Paragraph styling
       convention introduced by the source paragraph (previous item) and
       is easier to read. The old syntax still works but has been
     * QuoteBlocks now have a verse style -- you no longer have to nest a
       verse LiteralBlock inside a QuoteBlock for verses. The verse style
       on the LiteralBlock has been deprecated (still works though) and
       the style attribute is positional attribute 1, pushing attribution
       and citetitle attributes to the right (you'll need to insert a
       quote attribute into your existing QuoteBlocks).
     * It is no up to the DocBook processor to highlight source code
       syntax in <programlisting> elements rather than GNU Highlighter --
       this is the correct way to handle it, plus dblatex(1) makes a much
       better job.
     * scaledwidth and align attributes have been added to the image
       macro. They apply to DocBook outputs (specifically for PDF
       documents). scaledwidth sets the image size as a percent of the
       available page width; align applies left, center or right
       horizontal image justification.
     * Added a2x(1) --fop-opts=FOP_OPTS option (patch submitted by Miklos
     * Added a2x(1) --dblatex-opts=DBLATEX_OPTS option.
     * Added Mikhail Yakshin's FOP 0.95 patch which fixes a long-standing
       fo.xsl problem and allows PDF's to be generated with FOP 0.95
       (previously had to use FOP 0.20.5).
     * The User Guide has been updated and outdated FOP configuration and
       installation sections removed.

   Bug fixes
     * Fixed stylesheets/xhtml11-manpage.css not being included when
       linkcss attribute was used.
     * Configuration file *-style attributes are now dumped correctly.
     * Fixed FAILED: malformed section entry LaTeX backend error.
