I am pleased to announce version 0.9.1 of Skribilo, a schemey document
authoring system.

The SHA1 sums for these two files are:

  fe9fc92273b5fbdab220d50b6309f3d96b4b50f1  skribilo-0.9.1.tar.gz
  684ce2ca1194a1f486b75161a985d75e353feb14  skribilo-0.9.1.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, LaTeX or
ConTeXt for high-quality hard copies.

The input document can use Skribilo's markup language to provide
information about the document's structure, which is similar to HTML or
LaTeX and does not require expertise.  Alternatively, it can use a
simpler, ``markup-less'' format that borrows from Emacs' outline mode
and from other conventions used in emails, Usenet and text.

Skribilo can be thought of as a document programming framework for the
Scheme programming language that may be used to automate a variety of
document generation tasks.  It uses GNU Guile 1.8 as the underlying
Scheme implementation.

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.

Except from the `NEWS' file:

  ** Improved `configure' diagnostics and build/installation fixes

  Thanks to Barrie Stott!

  ** Various documentation fixes, improvements and additions

  Notably, examples no longer use the legacy Skribe API and the ConTeXt
  engine is now documented.

  ** Emacs mode no longer depends on Bigloo UDE
  ** Guile warnings about duplicate bindings are now hidden

  These harmless warnings looked like:

    WARNING: (skribilo ast): imported module (srfi srfi-34) overrides core 
binding `raise'

  ** The `slide' package supports additional customs

  Namely, `slide-outline-title' and
  `slide-outline-{active,inactive}-color'.  See manual for details.

  ** The `:toc' option of `slide' determines whether to include it in the 
  ** New option `:rulecolor' for `table'
  ** New `--sui-path' command-line option, new `*sui-path*' parameter
  ** Fix SUI `:ident' references
  ** Use more SRFI-34/35 exception handling instead of `skribe-error'
  ** Lesser reliance on recursive make
