+Slidy, and S5. Pandoc's markdown syntax includes extensions for LaTeX math,
+tables, definition lists, footnotes, and more.
-Since the last report, two new output formats have been added:
-EPUB and Slidy HTML slide shows. Now it is possible to write
-a book in markdown and produce an ebook with a single command!
-New markdown extensions include grid tables and example lists that are
-sequentially numbered throughout a document.
+Since the last report, many new features have been added and improvements
+made. Some highlights:
+\item Support for Textile input and output.
+\item Support for Emacs org-mode output.
+\item A new ``builder'' module for constructing Pandoc documents programatically.
+\item Support for \LaTeX math macros in markdown documents.
+\item Support for automatic citations and bibliographies using Andrea
+Rossato's citeproc-hs library.
+These last two changes bring two of the most powerful features of \LaTeX
+to pandoc.
