Context 2011.05.18

The split between mkii and mkiv is now complete, the two versions no longer share any code. This is nice, but it also makes creating release notes a bit of a pointless exercise because numerous files have been renamed and code has been reshuffled.

Instead of going into details we just mention a couple of changes that were most noticeable in the diffs:

For sure we forgot things.

Context 2010.07.30

New MkIV features:

Context 2010.05.24

This current fixes a small number of bugs in 2010.05.21, just in time for TeX Live 2010.

It also adds support for the latest version of antykwa-poltawskiego.

Context 2010.05.21

This current fixes a number of bugs in 2010.05.08.

Context 2010.05.08

Context 2009.11.26

Context 2009.10.27

This release fixes a fairly large number of bugs and oversights in mkiv, and few in mkii.

Context 2009.08.19

This is the context version on TeXLive 2009.

Note TeXLive 2009 ships with a broken MkIV, because the luatex on TeXLive is too old. Hans and I apologise for that, but it was just not feasible to include a newer luatex. Once TeXLive is released, we will write down a recipe to upgrade its luatex binary.

This is the first actually documented release for 2009 after a very long time of no release (and no release notes).The reason for that is that ConTeXt is now split quite rigurously into source files for mkii and source files for mkiv. Also, many of the core functions in context mkiv have been rewritten to make extensive use of lua. Unfortunately, this means that there is a massive amount of changes, and there is just no way I can create proper release notes. Just follow the link for a (long) list of new, old, and renamed source files. Taco 14:16, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
