The following message is a courtesy copy of an article
that has been posted to gmane.lisp.guile.user as well.


I am pleased to announce version 0.9.0 of Skribilo, the first alpha
release of this document authoring system.

The SHA1 sums for these two files are:

  b5690947ea36448eb64f0c5819a42506f7493795  skribilo-0.9.0.tar.gz
  d6759a6c765df9fe25159300049585a9fe692c0b  skribilo-0.9.0.tar.gz.sig

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 for on-line browsing, and Lout or LaTeX
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 1.8 as the underlying
Scheme implementation.

Skribilo is a follow-up to Manuel Serrano's and Érick Gallesio's
Skribe [0] (thank you!).  It is based on the code base of Skribe 1.2d
but differs in important ways.  User-visible differences are summarized
in the `NEWS' file.
