[platform-testers] texinfo-6.6.91 pretest

The next pretest for the next Texinfo release has been uploaded to

The highlight of this release will be improved indexing facilities.

There has not been much feedback since the last pretest release. We
may make the official release in a few days' time if there is no more
feedback. Thanks to all who tested the previous pretest and reported

There has been a very small number of changes since the previous
pretest release: see the entries in the ChangeLog file starting
2019-08-19 for details. I also made the pretest release on a different
computer, so there is a slight chance that something has changed in my
development environment that changed the contents of the distribution.

Please send any comments to <address@hidden>.

Full news:
* Language:
  . support of index subentries and sub-subentries with @subentry
  . new commands @seeentry and @seealso in index entries
  . no need to wrap Top node in @ifnottex - omitted automatically when
    processed with TeX
  . UTF-8 is the default input encoding

* texi2any
  . for HTML output, mark index nodes in menus and tables of contents
    with the 'rel' attribute of the 'a' tag.
  . TOP_NODE_UP is now only used in HTML if TOP_NODE_UP_URL is set.
    Also TOP_NODE_UP should now be formatted in the output format.
    In HTML TOP_NODE_UP should be suitable for inclusion in HTML
    element attributes, so for instance should not contain elements.
  . support of noderename.cnf files has been removed
    NODE_FILENAMES, SHORTEXTN and TOP_NODE_FILE removed as customization
  . TOP_NODE_FILE_TARGET now contains the extension.
  . error messages translated when the XS parser module is in use

* texi2dvi
  . unconditionally run in --batch mode, i.e. without stopping if there
    is a TeX error
  . keep on going after a TeX error if the index files changed
  . with --tidy (or --build-dir), avoid reading index files from previous
    runs where --tidy was not used

* info
  . for a tree search (with M-/), '}' and '{' work as well as 'M-}' and
    'M-{' to go through the results

* Distribution:
  . Several obsolete portability checks removed
  . gettext 0.20.1, automake 1.16.1
