Change notes:

1.0b4: Thu 25 Mar 2004

*   Fixed bug where a paragraph with multiple inline links or images
    -- i.e. [links like this](url "title") -- parsed incorrectly. The
    regex to match title strings was greedy, but shouldn't have been.

*   Much improved Blosxom interface: no longer processes Blosxom
    titles; now offers optional integration with meta plug-in, so that
    one can specify Markdown on a per-post basis. Thanks to Jason
    Clark <http://jclark.org/weblog/>.

*   Ampersands in defined links are now encoded as `&amp;` when
    necessary. E.g., if you define this:
        [1]: /foo&bar
    the resulting href attribute will point to "/foo&amp;that"

*   Implicit reference ID shortcut is now hooked up for img's:

        ![alt text][]

*   Markdown now allows for a newline break between [link text]
    [id], as in this sentence. (In both links and images.)

*   Underscores and asterisks within automatic links no longer show
    up in the output as MD5 hash values.
