Summary of Improvements
Today we have a fairly small release motivated primarily by wanting to patch a few small issues before some bigger things in the pipeline land. We cleaned up a few small scripting issues with the configure and install process that should make it easier to install from sources on BSD platforms or Linux distros such as Alpine that do not default to bash and GNU tooling.
Besides the minor tooling fixes, Didier Willis has continued to pour in contributions. This release features his feature overhaul to the leaders package so that dot fills align vertically. It also includes his fixes to whitespace handling around punctuation in French and better extraction of strings such as chapter titles to PDF bookmarks.
