hello ,

I finally got around to release, PLEASE report anything failings to me.

summary of changes since 0.10

* General

  - Apply [ 2714873 ] Fix for the overwritting of document attributes.
  - Support embedded aliases within hyperlink references.
  - Fix [ 228 ] try local import of docutils components (reader, writer, parser,
    language module) before global search.

* docutils/parsers/rst/directives/tables.py

  - Fix [ 210 ] Python 3.3 checks CVS syntax only if "strict" is True.

* docutils/writers/html4css1/__init__.py
  - Fix [ 3600051 ] for tables in a list, table cells are not compacted.
  - New setting `stylesheet_dirs` (see above).

    Now, it is easy to add a custom stylesheet to Docutils' default
    stylesheet with, e.g., ``--stylesheet_path='html4css1.css, mystyle.css'``

    Changed behaviour of the default settings:
      if there is a file ``html4css1.css`` in the working directory of the
      process at launch, it is used instead of the one provided by Docutils
      in the writer source directory.

  - New default for math-output_: ``HTML math.css``.
  - Avoid repeated class declarations in html4css1 writer
    (modified version of patch [ 104 ]).

.. _math-output: docs/user/config.html#math-output

* docutils/writers/latex2e/__init__.py

  - Drop the simple algorithm replacing straight double quotes with
    English typographic ones.
    Activate the SmartQuotes_ transform if you want this feature.
  - New setting `stylesheet_dirs`: Comma-separated list of directories
    where stylesheets are found. Used by `stylesheet_path` when expanding
    relative path arguments.

.. _SmartQuotes: docs/user/config.html#smart-quotes

* docutils/writers/manpage.py

  - Fix [3607063] handle lines starting with a period.
  - Fix option separating comma was bold (thanks to Bill Morris).

all the best
