This is slightly off-topic, but not that much, so I dare to post the
announcement here...

I am pleased to announce version 0.9.0 of Skribilo, the first alpha
release of this document authoring system.


The SHA1 sums for these two files are:

  b5690947ea36448eb64f0c5819a42506f7493795  skribilo-0.9.0.tar.gz
  d6759a6c765df9fe25159300049585a9fe692c0b  skribilo-0.9.0.tar.gz.sig

Documentation is available at:


Skribilo is a free document production tool that takes a structured
document representation as its input and renders that document in a
variety of output formats: HTML for on-line browsing, and Lout or LaTeX
for high-quality hard copies.  It is "highly programmable".  For
instance, it makes it very easy to traverse a document, thereby allowing
for introspection.

The Lout back-end (or "engine") provides several enhancements over "raw"
Lout, including PDF bookmarks and "docinfo", a high-level interface to
drop capitals, and support for varying paragraph indentation depending
of whether a paragraph comes first:


Skribilo is a follow-up to Manuel Serrano's and Érick Gallesio's
Skribe [0] (thank you!).  It is based on the code base of Skribe 1.2d
but differs in important ways.  User-visible differences are summarized
in the `NEWS' file.
