Docutils 0.3.7 released

Docutils 0.3.7 has been released.  You can download it from
The Docutils homepage is located at <>.

Docutils is a system for processing plaintext documentation into various
useful formats, such as HTML or LaTeX. It includes reStructuredText, the
easy to read, easy to use, what-you-see-is-what-you-get plaintext markup

Major changes since Docutils 0.3.5:

* A special "line block" syntax useful for addresses, verse, and other
  cases of significant line breaks has been added; see
  <> and

* Empty sections are now allowed.

* A "raw" role has been added; see

* The LaTeX writer now escapes consecutive dashes (like "--" or "---")
  so that they are no longer transformed by LaTeX to en or em dashes.
  If you want to write en or em dashes using pure ASCII, please refer to

* A dependency recorder has been added; see

* A directive has been added for compound paragraphs; see

* Many other improvements and bug fixes; see

Merry Christmas!
