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

Announcement text:

 - The citations extension should now be fully compliant with the Pandoc spec.
 - The `citationsNbsps` option now also affects newlines, as is expected.
 - The default `\markdownOptionCacheDir` explicitly specifies the current
   working directory, so that the cache files are not sought in the TeX
   directory structure.

 - Added information about the supported LuaTeX versions.
 - Added information about the portable use of the package.

 - All the syntax extensions (fenced code blocks and citations) were
   merged by the upstream project (Lunamark by John MacFarlane).
