Vít Novotný submitted an update to the markdown package. Version number: 2.3.0 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: A package for converting and rendering markdown documents inside TeX Announcement text:
Fixes: - ConTeXt module no longer mishandles active characters from `\enableregime`. - Shell access is no longer necessary with ConTeXt MarkIV. - The default renderers now render strong emphasis using a bold font face rather than a bold-italic font face. - Lazy blockquotes are now parsed properly. New features: - Added optional HTML support; when the support is enabled, the Markdown reader will recognize HTML elements, entities, instructions, and comments in the input. - Added optional breakable blockquotes support; when the support is enabled, blockquotes can be split apart using blank lines. Documentation: - Documented the behavior of the `-output-directory` TeX option. Development: - Removed unnecessary PEG patterns. - PEG patterns are now hash table entries rather than local variables; this was a necessary step due to the local variable number limit. This change was also backported to and merged by the upstream project. - The unit test templates now use M4 instead of ad-hoc sed string replacement. - The Lua text buffering routine was removed as it only introduced complexity to the package with no tangible benefits. All text buffering is now done in TeX. As a corrolary, the `\markdownLuaRegisterIBCallback` and `\markdownLuaUnregisterIBCallback` macros have been deprecated.

markdown – A package for converting and rendering markdown documents inside

The package provides facilities for the conversion of markdown markup to plain . These are provided both in form of a Lua module and in form of plain , , and Cont macro packages that enable the direct inclusion of markdown documents inside documents.

Architecturally, the package consists of the Lunamark Lua module by John MacFarlane, which was slimmed down and rewritten for the needs of the package. Lunamark provides speedy markdown parsing for the rest of the package. On top of Lunamark sits code for the plain , , and Cont formats by Vít Novotný.
