I am pleased to announce version 0.9.5 of Skribilo, a schemey document
authoring system.

The SHA256 hashes for these two files are:


Documentation is available at:

Skribilo is a free document production tool that takes a structured
document representation as its input and renders that document in a
variety of output formats: HTML and Info for on-line browsing, and Lout,
LaTeX or ConTeXt for high-quality hard copies.

The input document can use Skribilo’s markup language to provide
information about the document’s structure, which is similar to HTML or
LaTeX and does not require expertise.  Alternatively, it can use a
simpler, “markup-less” format that borrows from Emacs’ outline mode and
from other conventions used in emails, Usenet, and text.

Skribilo can be thought of as a document programming framework for the
Scheme programming language that may be used to automate a variety of
document generation tasks.  It uses GNU Guile 3.0 or 2.x as the
underlying Scheme implementation.

Skribilo is a follow-up to Manuel Serrano’s and Érick Gallesio’s Skribe
(thank you!).  It is based on Skribe 1.2d but differs in important ways.

Excerpt from the ‘NEWS’ file:

  * New in Skribilo 0.9.5

  ** Skribilo now runs on Guile 3.0 (in addition to 2.x)
  ** Guile 1.8 is no longer supported

  ** ‘document’ markup supports :info-dir-category and :info-dir-entry

  These are honored by the Info engine, which uses them as the category
  and entry that show up in the Info “dir” file.

  ** Info engine: number sections and chapters
  ** Lout engine: recognize and replace more Unicode characters in the input
