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

Announcement text:


- Added Natbib citation renderer to LaTeX.
- Added the `slice` Lua option for content slicing -- typesetting only certain parts of a markdown document.
  Thanks to David Vins <https://github.com/dvins> and Omedym <https://www.omedym.com> for sponsoring the development of content slicing.


- Stopped using the possibly active ASCII double quote characters (") after the \input TeX command.
- Added space before the second parameter in the basic LaTeX citation renderer.
- Fixed the outputDir Lua option, which enables the use of the -output-directory TeX option.
- Added support for Lua 5.3, which has been part of LuaTeX since 1.08.
- Fixed the non-terminating LaTeX citation renderers for BibTeX and Natbib.
- Fixed the capability of the unit testing script to add expected outcome to unfinished testfiles.


- Finished the user manual.
- Removed spurious commas in the documentation.
- Used CTAN-compatible markdown markup in the README.


- Made the unit testing script write Lua stack trace to the terminal when a test fails.
