handroll 1.1 released

I have released the 1.1 version of my static website generator. This version contains quite a few new features which are documented in the release history. Essentially, the 1.1 release adds the level of polish that users should probably expect from a product.

The features included in this releases were driven by what I actually needed for this website. This includes code highlighting, file skipping, and handling for non-ASCII characters (thanks ØMQ book!).

Under the hood, I added support for a plugin architecture so that anyone can write plugins for handroll.

Finally, I added documentation at Read the Docs and introduced better testing with Travis CI. These were added because of lessons learned from other projects.

You can download handroll from PyPI or install it with:

$ pip install handroll
