Revision history for skylighting-core

0.7.7 – 2019-02-27

  • Add parseSyntaxDefinitionFromString [API change].
  • Fix parseSyntaxDefinition so that language.dtd no longer needed. We strip out the SYSTEM “language.dtd” part of the doctype if present, leaving any inline entity definitions. This applies to both parseSyntaxDefinition and parseSyntaxDefinitionFromString.
  • Revised documentation of bootstrap build.
  • Makefile - fix bootstrap target.
  • Use FilePath instead of String for path (#64, anchpop).

0.7.6 – 2019-02-08

  • Update xml definitions for C, CPP, D, Haskell, Maxima, PHP, Ruby, Typescript.
  • Fix regex problem in erlang.xml (#63).
  • Export WordSet constructors (#62, Chris Martin).
  • Add support for protobuf (#60).

0.7.5 – 2018-12-01

  • Updated definitions for cmake, lua, prolog, rust, yacc, javascript.
  • Added definition for sml (#53).

  • Fix comments preceded by multiple spaces in bash.xml (#54).
  • Add *.txt extension and text/plain mime type to default.xml (#48).
  • Add file:/// if we have a Windows path with a drive. Otherwise HXT will take it to be a URI. See jgm/pandoc#4836.

0.7.4 – 2018-10-08
