[ANN] dokkit 0.4.0 released!
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.
