About
=====

 Webgen can be used to generate web pages from page description and
 template files. You create one template file in which you define the
 layout of your page and where the content should go. After that you can
 create page description files in which you only define the content.

 When webgen is run it combines the template with each of the page
 description files and generates the HTML output files. During this
 process special tags are substituted so that, for example, a menu is
 generated.

 More information on webgen can be found on its homepage:

Major changes
=============
* FileHandler now uses path patterns and/or extensions for determining which files to process!
* ERB (embedded ruby) can now be used in templates and page files (see PageHandler)!
* Relocatable tag now accepts complex URIs (URIs with query and fragment part, absolute URIs)
* Changed meta info name menuOrder to orderInfo (e.g. used for specifying order information for menus) - you have to adapt your page and backing files!!!
* New parameters: PageHandler:useERB
* Changed parameters: FileHandler:ignorePaths, FileCopyHandler:paths
* New page describing meta information items used by plugins
* Fixed bugs

Thanks for all the feedback!
