It's my pleasure to announce that I just uploaded rst2pdf 0.14 to the site at

Rst2pdf is a program and a library to convert restructured text directly into 
PDF using Reportlab.

It supports True Type and Type 1 font embedding, most raster and vector image 
formats, source code highlighting, arbitrary text frames in a page, cascading 
stylesheets, the full restructured text syntax and much, much more.

It also includes a sphinx extension so you can use it to generate PDFs from 
documents built with Sphinx. 

In case of problems, please report them in the Issue tracker 
( or the mailing list 

This release fixes several bugs and adds some minor features compared to 
0.13.2. Here are some of the changes:

  highlighting stylesheets.
