MT-Textile 2.0 beta

If you're willing to participate in beta testing MT-Textile 2.0 on your actual weblog, the beta release is available here. There are lots of new formatting features and plenty of fixes in it. Hey it even works well for utf-8 now. Go figure. Some documentation is here (also available from within the edit screen if you have "Textile" selected as your formatting option and you click the little "?" link to the right of the Text Formatting label).

As with MT-Textile 1.x, SmartyPants is used to supply "curly quotes", so install that if necessary. I've also added support for MT-CodeBeautifier which will pretty-print Perl, PHP, Java, etc. code. Example: <code language="perl">my $this = "that";</code>. (The 'language' attribute is not valid, so that parameter gets stripped out once the code is processed).

And please report any bugs using the Mantis bug tracker I've got running. Thanks in advance for your help.

Though I got an error saying it couldn't execute the stash command when it was undefined on line 24 in textile.pl line 24 (or something along those lines)

But I suppose that's what the bug reporter is for. Seems like a cool idea, though. Thanks!

I don't know if you read the comments religously but I will post here and see if you get the message. It would be helpful to include in the Textile docs that !http://image!:http://link will make a hyperlink out of an image...
Thanks for textile...

I liked your textile quite a bit and have been using a customized version with a few added features.

I added the @ notation and tried using <CODE> but I ran in to formatting problems where wrapping would be disable and the rest of the post would just stretch off in to the distance. I switched it back to <TT>. It was as if <CODE> wouldn't turn off until a new line / break. This was in IE 6. Is it just me or have others seen this problem?

Also, I modified my 1.1 copy to use
   text((description))
or
   "text with spaces"((description))
to force the use of acronynm. Does this seem useful to anyone else?

Finally, does the URL encoding recognize "mailto:"? I have a code fix for that as well.

It would appear, at no fault to Brad, that the code beautifier ignores line breaks, making things like comment blocks run right together. :(
