SnuggleTeX 1.1.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of SnuggleTeX 1.1.0, which is now available to download, read about and mess around with online.

So what's new in this release? Well the most significant new feature is (some still somewhat experimental) support for "up-converting" certain LaTeX math inputs to more semantic formats than the default Presentation MathML 2.0 outputs, such as Content MathML 2.0 and Maxima input syntax. This release also includes support for doing the same thing to the raw Presentation MathML generated by ASCIIMathML. This work was undertaken as part of my involvement with the JISC MathAssess project but is something that other people might find useful in other settings. I talk about this a bit more in a later Blog posting...

As well as this, there have been a number of other enhancements, including a new Maven-based modular project structure, better distribution bundles (a "basic" ZIP if you just want the core functionality, "full" if you want everything), extra utilities and helpers, a simple way of generating web pages, better documentation and various other bug fixes. I've also added some new demos for you to play around with - try this "Simple Math Input Demo" to get you started! For full details of what's new, check out the Release Notes.
