release notes:

  Two bugfixes, a new geegaw, still no settings detection/tracking...


README excerpts:

  IXIN is an EXPERIMENTAL distribution of EXPERIMENTAL code and
  some pre-built IXIN files.  IXIN stands for "indexed texinfo".

  All code is under GPLv3+.  All (.xml) docs are under GFDL.


  It defines a documentation file format and provides two simple
  tools to write and read, respectively, files in that format.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 1.6 | 2013-01-03

    - bugfix: detect ‘code’ DTS entries again

        IXIN 1.5 introduced a regression whereby V5.00 ‘indexterm’ was
        incorrectly assigned font ‘r’ instead of ‘code’.  This was
        evident in d/serveez.ixin, for example -- most of the entries in
        DTS ‘cp’ should be inverted (due to address@hidden).

    - bugfix: consider address@hidden / address@hidden for default font

        These commands now influence the default font for any particular
        DTS entry, instead of only address@hidden / address@hidden  For
        example, the sequence:

        @synindex pg fn
        @pindex mkixin

        now results in predefined DTS ‘fn’ having the default font
        ‘code’ and entry:

        (- "mkixin" NID)

        in the IXIN file, indicating that "mkixin" should be rendered
        with the inverse (i.e., ‘r’) font.  Previously, the entry would
        lack the leading ‘-’ (hyphen) because the default font for ‘pg’
        is ‘code’.

    - DTD upgraded to V5.0

        This is from Texinfo 4.13.93.  Incidentally, the coreutils doc
        is also updated to a snapshot from the repository, 2012-12-30.
        The d/{alive,coreutils,hello,rcs,serveez}.xml and spec/ixin.xml
        files have been regenerated accordingly.

    - "retrieve repl" now reads forms, not lines

        We've regained our senses.  See d/zow, for example.

    - XID TITLE can also be a renderable sequence

        Previously, XID TITLE could only be a string or ‘-’ (hyphen).
        For example, coreutils uses address@hidden @sc{gnu} Coreutils’.

    - new elisp lib for visual vetting: spit.el

        This is a first cut, very rough.  You can use it to check the
        bugfixes described above, and perhaps find others.  Obviously,
        you lose if you don't use Emacs, but that goes w/o saying...
