+GNU Texinfo, LaTeX, ConTeXt, EPUB, Slidy, and S5. Pandoc's markdown syntax includes
extensions for LaTeX math, tables, definition lists, footnotes, and more.
-There have been several releases since the last report, with many
-bug fixes and small improvements. There are two big architectural
-changes. First, pandoc no longer requires Template Haskell, which should
-make it more portable. Second, a new, flexible template system has been
-added, allowing users much more control over document headers and footers.
-Other major changes include support for xetex, support for reST tables,
-support for tables without header rows, support for formatting
-math as MathML, a new ``plain text'' output format, and a much
-more permissive HTML parser. The old \verb!hsmarkdown! and
-\verb!html2markdown! scripts have been removed; \verb!pandoc! itself can
-now do the work of \verb!html2markdown!. Summaries of the new features
-in each release are available on the (newly redesigned) website, along
-with full documentation and a new tutorial on using the pandoc
-library for structured text manipulation.
+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.
