- 2005-08-12: Txt2tags project and donations
After 4 years of txt2tags, donations are now turned ON. SourceForge
has a nice built-in donate feature (via PayPal), so I thought "Why
not?". If you like to donate to Open Source software,
now you can. If you don't, just ignore the Donate
FAQ: Nothing changes. Txt2tags will never be paid-software.
I don't expect to become rich. The site won't be spammed with Donate
buttons. Txt2tags continues to be a one-man spare-time project, with
the help of many volunteers.
- 2005-08-05: The Txt2tags Team Gallery
As you may have noticed by the latest news, the translators are
working very hard, even fighting the big 50-page User Guide. Doing so,
they have their nice happy picture placed on the brand-new
Txt2tags Team Gallery. Don't miss this link, see them all! But
I'm wondering... Why they keep translating even when their picture is
already there? Maybe they are trying to impress Fabianne, the only
girl on the team? ;)
- 2005-07-21: RSS feed for txt2tags news
Now you can be notified of txt2tags news using the site's

should be enough. Nerd Note: the feed is generated from a
SED script that parses this page.
- 2005-07-11: Wanna contribute to the txt2tags project? Translate!
Check out the new Documentation page, now with links to
the document sources and instructions on how to translate them. The
most important documents are the shorter, so it is very quick to
make a translation. Do you have some 15 or 30 spare minutes? Help us!
- 2005-07-11: New document: Quick Reference
There is a new document to help novice and experienced txt2tags users,
the Txt2tags Quick Reference. It is a one-page PDF
ready to print and stick to a wall around your desk. Don't think,
download :) Thanks Josť InŠcio Coelho da Silva,
Leslie Harlley Watter and Christof BŲckler
for making their own quick references which inspired this one.
- 2005-06-17: Released 2.3 version
Guess what? New txt2tags release! After some months of silence, the
red octopus rises again. This time there are new command line options
--dump-source and --config-file, and a really nice table column span
feature. You are a long time txt2tags user? So you will appreciate the
new "Markup Rules" document. English is not your mother tongue? Maybe
you should try the documents translated to French, Chinese and
Hungarian. Read more
about the news and
the new version!
