Summary description:  A build system for tex4ht

Announcement text:

 Version 0.3 2019-11-01:
 Lot of changes this time:

 - big update of the documentation, lot of grammar and spell errors fixed.

 - the terminal output is suppressed to few status messages and errors
   by default. The new --loglevel command line parameter can be used to
   change the amount of the terminal output.

 - added support for reading of the input from the standard input.
   Use the "-" character instead of a filename.

 New extensions:

 - preprocess_input: support for pre-processing of the input files
   using Pandoc and Knitr. It can detect the file type and process it
   accordingly. It supports Markdown, RMarkdown, Rtex, Rnw etc.

 - collapsetoc: useful for minitoces in multi page HTML files - it
   created table of contents containing headers in the HTML file and
   top level headers in the others. It is similar to TOCs used in
   Readthedoces (https://papis.readthedocs.io/en/latest/configuration.html
   for example)

 New commands useful in the build files:

 - bibliography support:
   - Make:biber
   - Make:bibtex

 - indexing support:
   - Make:xindy
   - Make:makeindex
   - Make:xindex

 New DOM filter:

 - tablerows: clean spurious rows from the converted tables.

 Lots of bug fixes, especially in the ODT format output.

 Version 0.3a 2019-11-01:

 - Added make4ht- prefix to extensions and formats file names

 - removed unused Lua libraries

 Version 0.3b 2019-11-03:

  The previous release introduced some filename clashes that
  should be fixed with this one.
