This file is about changes in BNF Mode.

* BNF Mode 0.4.5
** Tests were migrated from ert-runner to buttercup.
Previously BNF Mode used `ert' through `ert-runner' for testing
purposes.  However, it seems `ert-runner' is semi-abandoned.  Thus,
tests were migrated to use more aggressively maintained test
framework calles `buttercup'.

** Removed support of ALGOL 60 style comments.
Actually, this syntax was never part of the BNF and was mistakenly
interpreted as an alternative way of commenting BNF grammars
introduced by Peter Naur.

* BNF Mode 0.4.4
** Rework documentation and provide Info-file.
Previous releases of BNF Mode were bundled with incorrect “dir” file
that contained an invalid link to documentation.  This was
resolved.  All documentation now lives in “info bnf-mode”.

* BNF Mode 0.4.3
** Fixed dependency list in the Cask file.
Dependency list was fixed by specifying `cl-lib' version as well as
removing `rx' (`rx' is part of GNU Emacs actually).  This fixed the
issue reported in <>.
The issue is related to installation from the TAR file.

** CI/CD process was moved on GitHub Actions.

* BNF Mode 0.4.2
** First release in ELPA.

** Introduced ALGOL 60 comments style. Disabled by default.

** Use semicolons as a comments.
Only setting `bnf-mode-algol-comments-style' to non-nil will allow use
semicolons as a regular terminal symbols.

* BNF Mode 0.4.1
** Minor fix related to build & deploy BNF Mode on Travis CI.

* BNF Mode 0.4.0
** Added comment-start-skip to improve recognize comments.

** Return back comment-start and comment-end.

** Use more intelligent terminal syntax recognition.
Added support of ";" character as an extra character used in terminals.

** Provided ability to build installation package.
See make help for more.

* BNF Mode 0.3.2
** First release in MELPA.

** Treat ' and " as a regular symbols.

** Removed no longer needed comment-* variables.

** In the BNF there are no grouping brackets except angle ones.

** Removed the bnf-mode-version function.
Users can easily call describe-package or pkg-info-package-version
interactively if they want to get this information.

* BNF Mode 0.3.1
** Fixed BNF rule name definition to follow ALGOL 60 report.

* BNF Mode 0.3.0
** Nonterminals may be preceded by an unlimited number of spaces.

* BNF Mode 0.2.0
** Comments are no longer use syntax table.
