User-Visible DocKnot Changes

DocKnot 1.03 (unreleased)

Add support for a new metadata file, support/extra, that includes information that should be added into the middle of the normal SUPPORT section of README and files.

Add a paragraph to the license section of README and saying that SPDX license identifiers are in use and providing a pointer to the SPDX license list.

Add SPDX-License-Identifier headers to all substantial source files, and add a test to check for them.

DocKnot 1.02 (2017-12-31)

Support quoted paragraphs (each line starting with ">") and turn them into indentation when turning markup into plain text.

Support numbered lists when converting to thread.

Force long, unbreakable lines to be left intact when wrapping.

When wrapping paragraphs, preserve two spaces after periods even when the period comes before a closing parenthesis or quote mark.

Support test/prefix metadata, which replaces the introduction to the test instructions.

Add new license text BSD-3-clause-or-GPL-1+ to support pam-krb5. Support markdown formatting in license texts when converting to thread to handle the numbered clauses.

Support more complex quote attributions in thread output, and automatically add \cite[] around work names if they don't contain double quotes.

Add security advisory support to the thread template.

DocKnot 1.01 (2016-12-25)

Add build and test instructions for Autoconf packages, including details about Kerberos configuration, to the README and templates. Allow a testing section in the metadata to override the added testing section. Add a flag to indicate that the package is not intended to be installed, which suppresses some of the template.

Add support for license notices (the notices metadata file), which should be appended to the end of the stock license statement wherever it is generated.

Add support for stock building and installation sections for Perl module packages using either Module::Build or ExtUtils::MakeMaker.

Add thread template support for annotating quotes shorter than 80 characters with the "short" class.

Add support for additional bootstrapping requirements in a separate bootstrap metadata file, appended to the Autotools bootstrapping section (at least for right now).

Allow markup in the license notices section.

DocKnot 1.00 (2016-10-26)

Initial public release. Supports generating text and Markdown README files and a thread index page. There is some automation of the requirements section, but only automation for the build and test section for Module::Build Perl modules.
