2018-08-19: Mostly Kindle haul

It's been a little while since I've posted one of these. The good news is that I've been able to increase my reading a lot (just not my reviewing, quite yet), so I've already read a couple of these!

Bella Bathurst — Sound (non-fiction)
Sarah Rees Brennan — In Other Lands (sff)
Jacqueline Carey — Starless (sff)
Becky Chambers — Record of a Spaceborn Few (sff)
William J. Cook — In Pursuit of the Traveling Salesman (non-fiction)
Mur Lafferty — Six Wakes (sff)
Fonda Lee — Jade City (sff)
Yoon Ha Lee — Revenant Gun (sff)
Bridget McGovern & Chris Lough (ed.) — Rocket Fuel (non-fiction anthology)
Naomi Novik — Spinning Silver (sff)
John Scalzi — The Collapsing Empire (sff)
Karl Schroeder — The Million (sff)
Tade Thompson — Rosewater (sff)
Jo Walton — An Informal History of the Hugos (non-fiction)
Walter Jon Williams — The Praxis (sff)
Walter Jon Williams — The Sundering (sff)
Walter Jon Williams — Conventions of War (sff)

Reviews of the Scalzi and Chambers are upcoming, and I'm reading In Pursuit of the Traveling Salesman at the moment. (I've been filling in some gaps in my understanding of algorithms recently, ran across that popular history of the traveling salesman problem, and couldn't resist.)

2018-08-31: DocKnot 1.06

DocKnot is the tool I use to generate some documentation for my free software releases. (And eventually will do a lot more, once I find time to write the code I have planned.) This release fixes a few issues with its text output: URL footnotes are put immediately after the paragraph with the reference instead of the bottom of the text section, and paragraphs that look like they contain a lot of broken lines are not wrapped.

This release also adjusts the wording in the templates I use for my packages around make warnings and the list information URL for a release announcement list, and adds support for some more supplemental links for package web pages.

You can get the latest version from the DocKnot distribution page.
