2015-08-09 v0.14.0

  * Many fixes to parsing "deprecated", "platform", "library" directives.
  * simplexml output fixes (by Denis Grinyuk)
  * The document creation time is not printed in the docs by default. 
    Use "--include-creation-time" to show it. 
    --include-creation-time is orthogonal to --exclude-generator.

    Use "--verbosity 3" to show it.
  * Brazilian utf8 translation (by Alexsander da Rosa)
  * Upgrade tipue to 3.0.1, update jquery to 2.0.0.
  * Fix Delphi compilation (long generated tipue code) 
    (thanks to Marcos Rocha for investigating)
  * Add pasdoc_gui icon (by Karl-Michael Schindler)
  * Copyrights and docs fixes (thanks to Paul Gevers)
  * Various other small fixes and code cleanups.

  done by Michalis Kamburelis.

2005-11-26 v0.10.0

  + New command-line options:
    --auto-link
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/AutoLinkOption])
    --implicit-visibility
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/ImplicitVisibilityOption])
    --no-macro
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/NoMacroOption])
  + New @-tags:
    @bold and @italic
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/BoldAndItalicTags])
    @seealso
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/SeeAlsoTag])
    @inheritedClass
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/InheritedClassnameNameTag])
    @preformatted (by Ascanio Pressato)
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/PreformattedTag])
    @orderedList, @unorderedList, @definitionList, 
      @item, @itemLabel, @itemSpacing, @itemSetNumber
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/ListTags])
    @table, @row, @rowHead, @cell
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/TableTags])
    @noAutoLinkHere, @noAutoLink
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/AutoLinkOption])
    @tableOfContents
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/TableOfContentsTag])
  * Dashes rules: em-dash, en-dash, short dash, "@-"
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/WritingDocumentation])
  * FPC macros are now correctly parsed by pasdoc.
  * Each detailed description in HTML output is enclosed within gray frame
  * Various fixes. E.g.
    * --spell-check-ignore-words works now.
    * @links to @anchors and @sections work always now.
  * Many improvements to pasdoc_gui (by Richard B. Winston and Michalis)
  * back-comments
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/WhereToPlaceComments#head-7ce7157fefbd0d84d3577aa636f758baa813e201])
  
  Some compatibility had to be broken:
  * New dashes rules break compatibility. But actually previous
    behavior with regards to dashes was broken, because "-"
    was just always directly copied to output. So previously
    in HTML "-" always meant just a short dash (there was no
    way to write en-dash or em-dash). And in LaTeX
    "---"/"--"/"-" meant em-dash/en-dash/short dash,
    but there was no way to escape it (i.e. there was no "@-"
    construct).
  * Back-comments feature breaks compatibility if you have comments
    that have as their exact 1st character "<". Now they will be
    interpreted as back-comments (assigned to previous item
    with "<" stripped). To fix your docs, just add
    a space inside such problematic comment right before "<".

  done by Michalis Kamburelis.

2005-07-09 v0.9.0

  End-user visible changes:
  + New command-line options:
    --auto-abstract
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/AutoAbstractOption])
    --introduction and --conclusion
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/IntroductionAndConclusion])
    --latex-head
      (see appropriate part of [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/CommandLine])
    --link-gv-uses and --link-gv-classes
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/GraphVizSupport])
    --link-look
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/LinkLookOption])
    --sort
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/SortOption])
    --use-tipue-search
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/UseTipueSearchOption])
    --version
      (see appropriate part of [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/CommandLine])
  + New @-tags:
    @br
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/BrTag]) 
    @latex
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/LatexTag])
    @section, @anchor, @title, @shorttitle tags in introduction/conclusion
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/IntroductionAndConclusion])
    @deprecated
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/DeprecatedTag])
    @value and @member
      (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/MemberValueTag])
  + pasdoc_gui, a GUI alternative to console pasdoc version.
  + Spell checking (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/SpellChecking])
  * Cache is now independent from output format
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/CacheOption])
  * Many fixes and improvements to HTML output,
    it's now structured a little more consistently,
    it's more configurable by CSS,
    it's 100% conforming HTML 4.01 Transitional.
  * Many fixes and improvements to LaTeX output, 
    it's also structured more consistently, 
    and it doesn't omit undocumented items
    (see the bottom of [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/WritingDocumentation]).
  * @longcode improvements: 
    it's now formatted in LaTeX output,
    the look of float and hex values inside @longcode in HTML output
    is configurable by CSS.
  * Parsing improvements:
    * Better full declaration of items is now displayed in documentation
    * FPC overloaded operators are now parsed
    * Delphi hint directives (deprecated, platform, library) are now parsed
  * You don't have to enclose tag parameters in parenthesis
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/TagsParametersWithoutParenthesis])
  * Many many other small fixes and improvements.

  Many internal improvements, like:
  + We maintain a large set of tests (regression tests,
    conformance tests etc.) in pasdoc sources 
    (see tests/README file in pasdoc sources and
    [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/RegressionTesting]).

  Documentation:
    You can find the most complete and up-to-date documentation
    of pasdoc features in our wiki, [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/].
    Unfortunately, with pasdoc 0.9.0, offline documentation 
    (previously in docs/ directory of released archives) is no longer 
    provided, this is intended to be fixed in future releases 
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/ToDoOfflineDocs]).

  Some compatibility had to be broken:
  * pasdoc.css will be always overwritten when you generate HTML documentation.
    You must use --css command-line option 
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/CssOption])
    if you want to use your custom css.
  * By default no items are sorted.
    You must use --sort command-line option
    (see [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/SortOption])
    if you want to change this.
  * @links look now a little different, see
    [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/LinkLookOption] and
    [http://pasdoc.sipsolutions.net/LinkTag], 
    use --link-look=stripped if you really need old behavior.

  Authors: many. See @author tags at the beginning of pasdoc 0.9.0 units.

 + new option-parser
 + uses delphi streams instead of files. Supposedly does not work
   on all platforms FPC runs on - need advice
 + commentmarker (for example only {: comments )
 + declarations like
   "var a: function(x,y,z:Integer):Integer cdecl = nil" 
   are parsed correctly
 + dependency plotting with GraphViz (AT&T )
   (not very useful)
 + uses clause will be included in doc (optional)
 + links "http://", "ftp://" etc. are recognized automatically
 + varargs directive
 + abbreviations "@author(johannes)" can be expanded
   to @author(Johannes Berg <...>) via abbreviatons file
 + @cvs($Date ...$), @cvs($Author ...$) is recognized and
   used for lastmod / author
   + duplicate authors skipped
 - name search doesn't look into classes any more,
   if a method reference is needed outside the current class
   then the class has to be specified:
   @link(class.method)
   (faster and less error-prone)
 + HTML output uses unitname.classname.html instead of numbers,
   but has option to make number-only-filenames (for short-name
   filesystems)
 + class member visibility can be specified in output
 + long option names (see PasDoc --help)
 + images are no longer carried in a .RES file but in include
   files instead, as constants in code, for FPC

Some time inbetween... (0.6.21 to 0.8.6) Ralf Junker
 - LaTeX documentation removed
 - see http://zeitungsjunge.de/delphi/PasDoc/History.htm for
   more information.

2000/04/20 v0.6.20 ms
- added Rodrigo Jardim's translations of pasdoc's output to Brasilian
  Portuguese; new switch -b (and --brasilian)
- increased STEP from 32 to 128 when reallocating description pointers,
  this makes pasdoc crash less with RTE 216; bug must still be fixed by
  changing GetMem's default behaviour

2000/04/17 v0.6.19 ms
- fixed bug that prevented pasdoc from skipping code until an $else
  conditional directive (thanks to Michael v. Canneyt for reporting
  this bug)

2000/04/12 v0.6.17 ms
- added Marc Weustinks Dutch translation to pasdoc; switch -m (or --dutch) now
  creates Dutch output
- successfully created docs on Delphi 5 rtl\win directory (222 seconds, 16 MB html
  files on a P-II 350, 256 MB RAM)

2000/04/09 v0.6.15 ms
- added Michael v.C.'s update of the tex unit (changed chapter/section/
  subsection nesting of LaTeX output)
- moved LoadDescriptionFile and LoadDescriptionFiles from main.TPasdoc to
  gendoc.TDocGenerator
- worked on external description file loading
- email addresses in author tags are now displayed as mailto links in HTML
  output
- hard-coded HTML colors in body element (already added colors for tables
  etc., as long as the whole thing is not CSS-based, it's better to have
  all colors defined so that unusual default colors of a browser won't ruin
  the overall impression)
- released 0.6.15

2000/04/08 v0.6.13 ms
- released 0.6.13

2000/04/06 v0.6.13 ms
- fixed bug that made pasdoc ignore a unit that has ). in a type declaration;
  in scanning.pas, ). was supposed to be a replacement for ] while it must be
  .)

- added -u DIR switch to make pasdoc search for include files

2000/04/04 v0.6.11 ms
- moved objects.pas to directory 'other'; will now use default objects unit from FPC
- for the time being, I stop trying to compile pasdoc with Delphi, there is some bug
  I am unable to trace; Delphi 5 compiles pasdoc without problems but crashes when
  running it on appinfo.pas between the second and third constant for no apparent
  reason; I will try to fix bugs that are more obvious in the near future...
- fixed bug that made default keyword after a property appear as a field of that class
  (thanks to Andre Jager for pointing this out)
- fixed bug that made pasdoc crash on an empty author tag: @author()
  (thanks to Michael Hess for finding and isolating (!) this!)
- made pasdoc skip property declaration; property parsing needs some work,
  I will do this soon

2000/04/03 v0.6.11 ms
- created sourceforge.net account; pasdoc is now at http://pasdoc.sourceforge.net
- modified homepage to have frames; single page has become too huge

2000/03/31 v0.6.11 ms

  science - woohooo! again some time to work on pasdoc...

2000/02/11 v0.6.10 ms
- changed directory structure of the pasdoc project (added src, bin, man etc.)

  react on them with an error message
- received pasdoc DOS binaries sent in by Jean-Pierre Vial and created a 0.6.9
  DOS binaries release, then updated the homepage
- added IOResult check in TFileInputStream.Open in filestre.pas; no more crashing
  on non-existent files

  procedure TPasDoc.ExpandDescriptions to be called after
  TDocGenerator.BuildLinks and before TDocGenerator.WriteDocumentation
