BM v5.0.0 is Released
Posted on 04 Mar 2020 by Matt Traudtpermalink
Hey look. This dead project is getting a new major version. Don't count on this continuing to happen! ;)
The default/bundled markdown parser is changed from
cmark-gfm. While making the change, I sometimes noticed the content of my
pages being rendered differently. Once the change was finally fully made,
however, the content renders the same. I have no idea why it would be
different, nor do I know what I was doing to make it break/unbreak.
Thus, to be cautious, I'm calling this a breaking change. Thus a new major version for BM is required.
The full spec for Github Flavored Markdown is
here. BM bundles
cmark-gfm v0.29.0, so
assuming the spec still says it applies to that version at the top, BM should
support everything you read there. I haven't tested anything other than
I do not expect to update the bundled
cmark-gfm with any regularity. I don't
even expect to update BM!
Other new features
A static directory. Put stuff in
static/ and it will be copied to
build/static/. Put your resume at
static/docs/resume.pdf and link to it
RSS feed generation. I think I implemented it poorly. I don't know. I don't use RSS feeds.
