[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: asciidoc-8.2.3-1

Hash: SHA1

A new version of the asciidoc package, asciidoc 8.2.3-1, is now available
for download, replacing 8.2.2-1 as current.

This is a new upstream release, with upstream changes listed below.  See
also the package documentation in /usr/share/doc/asciidoc-8.2.3/.

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.

Note that downloads from (aka aren't

     * The nested inline macros restriction has now been lifted, for

   Bug fixes
     * Author information is now correctly set when using attribute

       author attribute was not being calculated correctly and there were
       attribute substitution problems).
