the 0.7.0 is working fine for me. But today I tried to generate the 
pdf-doc for the first time. And I realized the build scripts are 
hardcore unix and does not work on windows (without cygwin). This seems 
unecessary since the functionality could be easily implemented in 
python. I have attached a patch that implements this for windows. I have 
left out the modifications necessary for unix. The patch contains three 

batchfile that calls the update_manual.py script with ipython 

Some instructions on how to build the manual. Since the readme files in 
this directory does not contain any information on how to build the docs

python program that performs the duties of update_magic.sh and 
update_version.sh if called by ipython update_manual.py.

Perhaps update_manual.py should be changed to run using just python. But 
  I could not figure out how to do this. It would also be nice if the 
script exits when finished, but I'm not sure how to do this either.
