scholdoc v0.1.3-alpha Release Notes

Release Date: 2014-10-15 // over 9 years ago
  • Note: This version largely consists of major cleanups under the hood. It bring the development of Scholdoc up-to-date with the latest Pandoc development version, and removed many unnecessary source files related to unused reader/writers.

    โž• Added

    • The Pandoc-derived portion of Scholdoc is now up to date with Pandoc 1.13.1 (commit 8b60d430)
    • ๐Ÿ— The build-chain of Scholdoc have been cleaned-up and is now ready for production. Running make deps && make install under the source directory now fully builds using its own scholdoc-types and scholdoc-texmath packages.
    • ๐Ÿ“š Updated documentation to reflect the Scholdoc project:,, BUGS, COPYRIGHT

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • Scholdoc now looks for custom template files under the ~/.scholdoc/ directory, instead of ~/.pandoc
    • The "--no-standalone" option no longer imply "_bodyOnly" writers. Instead "--no-standalone" now strictly stops all template usage.

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • The program name is changed from scholpandoc to scholdoc to more accurately reflect the limited input/output options compared to Pandoc.
    HTML output

      • latex-after-packages-includes
      • latex-header-includes
