## About kramdown

kramdown (sic, not Kramdown or KramDown, just kramdown) is a *free*
GPL-licensed [Ruby](http://www.ruby-lang.org) library for parsing a
superset of Markdown. It is completely written in Ruby, supports
standard Markdown (with some minor modifications) and various
extensions that have been made popular by the [PHP Markdown Extra]
package and [Maruku].

## kramdown 0.3.0 released

The HTML block syntax was changed in this release sothat using raw HTML
blocks works more naturally and the rules are easier to remember. This
also lead to the creation of a completely new HTML block parser. Apart
from that, there have also been some bug fixes.

Another important change is that kramdown now also runs under Ruby

## Changes

* Major changes:

  - Added a compatibility fix so that kramdown works under Ruby 1.8.5
    (requested by Steve Huff)
  - Complete overhaul of the used block HTML syntax and block HTML
  - Using the same semantics for invalid end tags and unclosed tags in
    the block and span HTML parser

* Bug fixes:

  - Fixed warnings on Ruby 1.9
  - Fixed bug in emphasis parser where emphasis started with an
    underscore at the beginning of a new line inside a paragraph was
    not recognized (reported by Eric Sunshine)

* Deprecation notes:

  - The old extension names `kdoptions` and `nokramdown` have been
    removed, only the new names `options` and `nomarkdown` will work
    from now on.
