New Code!

Discount has been pushed up to version 2.0.6 with the addition of one bizarre feature; php markdown extra-style footnotes, which are disabled by default, but can be enabled with the MKD_EXTRA_FOOTNOTES flag (or the -ffootnotes flag to the markdown(1) program.)

PHP markdown extra footnotes are almost completely unlike the traditional footnote syntax; they actually place a little list of footnotes down at the foot of the document and provide superscripted footnote markers that can be used to click down to the bottom and back. I suppose it’s useful if you want to make your web pages look very closely like books – I don’t see the point of it, but users wanted it and it was a fairly trivial thing to get working (if not documented.)

So if you don’t plan on using them, this New Code! should do absolutely nothing that 2.0.5 didn’t do. But if you do plan on using them, well, here’s your chance, so grab this New Code! and see what falls, shrieking, out of the sky when you fire it up!
