## 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 0.13.7 released

This release, aside from fixing bugs and some other minor changes, adds
a new converter for removing HTML tags from an element tree. This means
that one can now do

    kramdown -i html -o remove_html_tags,kramdown my_document.html

and get a nice kramdown document from a full HTML document!

## Changes

* 1 major change

  - Implemented [RemoveHtmlTags converter] for removing HTML tags from
    an element tree (fixes bug [RF#29282] requested by Bernard Potocki)

* 3 minor changes

  - Updated kramdown binary to support multiple, chained output formats
  - Added a new option for setting a default coderay highlighting
    language (requested by Lou Quillio)
  - Feature request [RF#29575]: Added support for `­` soft-hyphen
    entity (requested by Alexander Groß)

* 5 bug fixes

  - Fixed bug [RF#29576]: Footnotes in headers resulted in duplicated
    `id` attr in TOC (reported by korthaerd)
  - Multi-line titles in links are now correctly parsed
  - DOCTYPE declaration is now correctly parsed independent of case
  - Setting of `nil` options works now by using the String 'nil'
  - Fixed table-of-content test cases (test went green although the
    meaning of the test was not satisfied due to copy-paste - d'oh!)

* 1 documentation fix

  - Fixed bug [RF#29577]: sidebar link to news page was broken for HTML
    pages in sub directories (reported by korthaerd)
