Webby 0.9.0 (Vegan Velociraptor)

Webby version 0.9.0
by Tim P.
(the “Vegan Velociraptor” release)


Webby is a fantastic little website management system. It would be
called a content management system if it were a bigger kid. But, it’s
just a runt with a special knack for transforming text. And that’s
really all it does - manages the legwork of turning text into something
else, an ASCII Alchemist if you will.

Please read the release notes before upgrading to Webby 0.9.0
