Most of you have probably deduced this, but Hans has released a new version of ConTeXT past friday.
New features: * There now is a Persian interface (format) * The whole multilingual subsystem is rewritten and is now generated by a script from a single lua database table. ** Note: ** External modules that define or set system constants ** and system variables will need updating. * New versions of the greek, vim and bib modules * More files have been split into mkii+mkiv parts * The old, dvipdfm style font mapfiles have been removed because newer versions of (x)dvipdfmx support the pdftex-style map format * mkiv now has support for 'special' features like knockout vs overprint and spot colors via attributes
For pdftex users, there are not that many changes, but users of xetex of luatex are advised to update a.s.a.p.
The wiki page is here:
It is clear already that there are a few issues with the new release (esp. wrt. external modules) but it still makes sense to update *now* so that all these problems can be resolved in the next few days.
This release is already included in the ConTeXt Minimals distribution
If you use a different distribution, you can download the cont-tmf.zip from Pragma ADE directly:
Have fun, Taco
