Good day subscribers,

On behalf of the small HTACG group, I wanted to take the opportunity to
provide you an update on our progress towards releasing a new, modern Tidy.

Although we've pushed the release date back for an official release by a
couple of weeks, things are looking really good for Tidy. Since
2015-January-15:

- Added support for svg, picture, mathml, and more.

- Fixed numerous bugs.

- HTACG has a nice landing page: http://www.htacg.org

- Tidy's website is refreshed and modern: http://www.html-tidy.org

- We are getting very close to a final strategy for providing binary
distributions once again.

- We will reach out to maintainers for popular repositories in an effort to
help them update distributions to include modern Tidy.


If you are interested in particulars then I encourage you to look at the
project's commit history (https://github.com/htacg/tidy-html5/commits/master
).

If you've not used Tidy in a while, then we hope that you can try our
current pre-release version and give us some feedback.

Although we've made a lot of progress, the project itself needs some help,
and if you have an interest in Tidy and its future, we invite you to join
us. You do not have to be a C coder!

- HTACG could still use some help in developing a governance process.

- Any general project management experience is welcome.

- HTML and/or Jekyll experience can help with our websites.

- Social media users can help us spread the word to a larger audience.

- Doxygen / Code documenters can help us build a world-class set of
documentation.

- Should we add something to our websites? Write it and we will consider it.

- Suggestions are always welcome. If you use Tidy, you are already part of
the community. Let your voice be heard.
