RedCloth 3.1 will focus on getting us diverse outputs. I am
reconciling
LaTeX and Docbook patches right now. I also have a ClibPDF patch.

Have the PDF output plans been tabled?

Whoa! If Redcloth gets these things, it’ll make Ruport’s life a lot
easier!

Don’t get too excited - I was all atwitter too until I realized that
that
post was from February 2005. RedCloth dev isn’t quite dead - svn log
shows occasional checkins to trunk in the past few months - but I
haven’t
seen any talk of release anywhere, or even acknowledgement of the known
bugs in 3.0.4, the redcloth-upwards mailing list is dormant, and
questions
here go unanswered by the authors.

Sniff.
