It's my pleasure to announce the release of rst2pdf version 0.12, available at

Rst2pdf is a tool to generate PDF files directly from restructured text 
sources via reportlab.

Rst2pdf aims to support the full restructured text feature set, and is very 
close to that goal, while also including some of the more experimental 
features, like a source code directive with syntax highlighting and math 
notation support with LaTeX-like syntax.

It supports embedding arbitrary fonts, both True Type and PS Type 1, both 
raster and vector images (including SVG and PDF), page transition effects, 
multiple, flexible page layouts, cascading styles, and much, much more.

This version includes many bugfixes and **MANY** new features compared to the 
previous 0.11 version, including but not limited to better styling, 
integration with `sphinx <>`_, a very raw, preliminar 
graphical frontend called bookrest, and a much more powerful tables 

In fact, this release has so much new code it needs testers! I would consider 
it beta quality, and may (probably will) have some rough spots.

You can find more information about rst2pdf in its home page 
(, and ask anything you want in the rst2pdf- 
discuss mailing list (

A list of improvements and changes in this version is just too long, but is 
available at the `changelog 

I hope you enjoy this program!
