This release includes two minor changes and some bug fixes: The output
of the [meta information tag][1] is now escaped by default. This can be
changed by setting the `tag.metainfo.escape_html` option in the
configuration file. And a rake task for showing outdated translations
has been added.


* Minor changes:

- Added a rake task to show outdated translations
- Added a [configuration option][2] for specifying whether a meta
info value should be escaped

* Bug fixes:

- All error messages now display useful path names (reported by Eric
- Fixed another CSS bug with sub directories in style bundle
'andreas07' (reported by Thomas Deselaers)
- Fixed problem with unintentionally modified `link` meta information
that lead to errors
- Commands are now correctly shown when running `webgen --help`
- Fixed a problem where an incorrect path was shown in error messages

What's webgen?

webgen is a tool to generate static websites by combining content
with template files. You create one or more template files in which
you define the layout of your page and where the content should go.
After that you create page files in which you only define the
content. You can use a variety of markup languages like Textile or
Markdown or Haml to define your content and you can add dynamic parts
via ERB or by using webgen tags. This allows the automatic generation
of menus, breadcrumb trails and much more!


gem install webgen
