    Hi Folks,

    version 0.4.0 of dokkit has been released!

    1 Changes from version 0.3.0

    * improved support for partials and nested layouts
    * added cache support
    * easy environment setup with the introduction of a configuration
    * a lot of code refactoring and bug fixes

    2 What's dokkit?

    dokkit is a document generator written in ruby that is suitable for
    static websites generation too.

    dokkit uses formatters like deplate[1] and maruku[2] to generate
    documents in a large variety of output formats.

    dokkit's features are:

    * a smart building system based on rake[3]
    * a templating system based on ERB[4]
    * a flexible configuration system based on YAML[5] that supports
    shared configuration files and 'in header' configuration
    * an extensible formatting system that uses deplate and maruku as
    built-in filters
    * convention over configuration: for example, you don't need to give
    the layout name to use if a layout with the same name of the
    processed document is found in doc/layouts folder
    * support for nested layouts
    * support for partials
    * support for caching

    With dokkit you can:

    * generate static websites
    * generate many types of documents in many formats (html, tex, plain
    text, etc.)
    * write your documents using a simple wiki syntax and get high
    quality latex output
    * generate different output formats from the same source document
    * use models to quickly generate the documents you want (static
    websites, reports, howtos, guides, presentations, etc.)
    * simply derive new documentation models from the existing ones
    * simply modify existing models to fit your needs

    dokkit aims to be modular and extensible: you can add new formatters and
    helpers and easily extend document functionalities.

    See dokkit website[6] for further informations and tutorials.
