What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· A new option `-j' has been added to call the `chem' preprocessor.
· Improved line numbering support.
· Support for the `refer' preprocessor has been added to the -mm macro package.
· In -me, the `TH' macro was changed for compatibility with line number support in tables. `bl' now works inside of blocks. The behaviour of centered blocks has been improved. Line numbering support has been improved.
· The -mom macro package has reached version 2.0, focusing on PDF output with gropdf (using the new `pdfmom' wrapper script). See the file `version-2.html' of the -mom documentation for a list of the many changes.
· Some generic Unicode fallback characters (mainly Roman numerals) have been added.
· A new driver for generating PDF output directly, contributed by Deri James. Note that this driver is written in Perl, thus you need a working Perl installation to run this output device.
· A new wrapper around groff that facilitates the production of PDF documents from files formatted with the -mom macros.
