A new version of the asciidoc package, asciidoc 8.5.3-2, is now
available for download for those testing the experimental
python-2.6.5-1.  asciidoc 8.5.3-1 remains current for python-2.5.5-1.

This is a refresh build against the newer python.  See also the package
documentation in /usr/share/doc/asciidoc/.

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 http://cygwin.com/ 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.  As long as python 2.6 remains
experimental, you will first have to select the 'Exp' radio button.

Note that downloads from sourceware.org (aka cygwin.com) aren't allowed
due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to find a
mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
