This release includes lots of enhancements, but the big
news is that the a2x toolchain wrapper has been
rewritten in Python and now supports the EPUB
e-book standard.

All additions and changes are detailed in the changelog:
http://www.methods.co.nz/asciidoc/CHANGELOG.html

What is it?
-----------
AsciiDoc is an uncomplicated text document format for
writing articles, documentation, manuals, books and
UNIX man pages.

AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML, XHTML and DocBook
(articles, books and refentry documents) using the
asciidoc(1) command. DocBook can be post-processed to
presentation formats such as HTML, PDF, EPUB, DVI, roff
and Postscript using the a2x toolchain wrapper and readily
available Open Source tools.

AsciiDoc is configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file
syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost
any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended
by user.

Requisites
----------
Python 2.4 or higher.
