Hi,

For those interested: I just uploaded deplate 0.7.3. It's also available 
as a gem.

Homepage:
http://deplate.sourceforge.net/

Download:

http://rubyforge.org/projects/deplategem (gem)

deplate is a converter for wiki-like markup with output to LaTeX, HTML 
(single page, chunked), DocBook, and really plain text. It can read 
viki/deplate markup and rdoc files. It supports most markup elements 
needed for complex documents (e.g., footnotes, citations, index, table 
of contents, embedded LaTeX for mathematics). Output can be customized 
via page templates. deplate can create Web pages and (via LaTeX or 
Docbook) high-quality printouts from the same source. It is the 
accompanying converter for the Vim viki plugin.

This release contains many small changes, fixes, and improvements: 
Easier configuration; can be fully localized; define elements and 
particles right in the document; some new modules & formatters; improved 
support for rdoc input.

Changes:
     - The #Html, #Latex shortcuts for #Native were disabled.
     - Template formatter can be used from the command line.
     - Module for LaTeX like ($\math$) math markup.
     - deplate can be fully localized.
     - Variables can be hashes & array; improved support for boolean
       variables.
     - Auxiliary files can be putted in a subdirectory (e.g.,
       FILENAME_files).
     - Improved utf8 support. On-the-fly transcoding via iconv (if
       available).
     - Read user setting from ~/deplate/deplate.ini (which should make
       ruby hacking obsolete for most users).
     - Php output (basically the same as HTML).
     - In extended wiki links, both arguments get fully parsed (i.e.,
       they may contain macros).
     - Improved support for rdoc
     - New elements, particles can be defined in the source document, no
       ruby hacking requires (experimental).
     - Text can be embedded in comments.
     - Can mix input formats (currently, only the inclusion of rdoc
       documents in deplate documents is supported).
     - Improved xmlrpc server.
     - Formatters for small text snippets.
     - Improved support for bibtex files.
     - Run "deplate -m makefile INPUT FILES" to create a standard
       Makefile.

Thomas.
