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

Announcement text:

The Markdown package provides facilities for the conversion of markdown
markup to plain TeX. These are provided both in form of a Lua module
and in form of plain TeX, LaTeX, and ConTeXt macro packages that enable
the direct inclusion of markdown documents inside TEX documents.

Architecturally, the package consists of the Lunamark Lua module by
John MacFarlane, which was slimmed down and rewritten for the needs of
the package. Lunamark provides speedy markdown parsing for the rest of
the package. On top of Lunamark sits code for the plain TeX, LaTeX, and
ConTeXt formats by Vít Novotný.
