kramdown 0.5.0 released

This release features syntax support for smart quotes in kramdown
documents and a new converter for LaTeX output. The kramdown binary has
also been enhanced to support setting any option.

The additional support for the smart quotes makes this release of
kramdown a little bit slower than the previous releases when run under
Ruby 1.8. However, a small optimization in the span parser which is not
noticable under Ruby 1.8 gives quite a performance boost under Ruby 1.9
(see the graphs on the [tests page][1]).

Also note that the internals have been restructured slightly. So if you
do more than just using the basic, OPTIONS).to_html

{: lang=“ruby”}

you may need to adapt your code.

Since the option handling has been revamped, each coderay option must
not be set separably!
