Summary description: A package for converting and rendering markdown documents inside TeX

Announcement text:
New features:
- Added Pandoc-style citations and CommonMark fenced code blocks syntax extensions.
- Added the following renderers:
  - `interblockSeparator`,
  - `ulItemEnd`, `olItemEnd`, `dlItemEnd`,
  - `nbsp`, `cite`, `textCite`, and
  - `inputFencedCode`.
- Added the following Lua options:
  - `citations`, `citationNbsps`,
  - `fencedCode`, and `blankBeforeCodeFence`.

Changes in behavior:
- Replaced the `-` character in the default `\markdownOptionCacheDir` with `_`.
- The cache filenames are now different based on the version of the package.
- Code spans may now be empty.

- The conversion from Markdown should now produce consistent behavior no matter
  if the input of the conversion function ends with `\n\n`, `\n`, or nothing.
- LaTeX interface `rendererPrototypes` keys for the `pipe`, `link`, and `image`
  renderers no longer incorrectly set the `\markdownRenderers<Renderer>` macros
  rather than the  `\markdownRenderers<Renderer>Prototype` macros.
- Made the programming more defensive, so that the package works correctly
  under TeXLive 2012.
- Fixed nested `keyval` handling inside `\markdownSetup` et al.

- Added the package to a continuous integration service.
