Marked 2.4.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Brett Terpstra has released Marked 2.4.1 [1] with a number of improvements to the Markdown previewer. The update now enables print headers and footers to be specified per document using MMD metadata, allows HTML comments to be placed around all metadata, adds the capability to render Leanpub “X>“ blocks, and adds a streaming preview (with the promise on Terpstra’s blog post [2] to provide “more on this soon”). It also fixes image detection and permission requests for Scrivener and other unspecified apps, fixes the multi-column printing theme, and no longer preserves newlines in GitHub Flavored Markdown (GFM) by default. Terpstra also notes that the direct download edition of Marked 2.4.1 will be the last one that doesn’t support automatic updates (which will begin working with the next release). Note, however, that the Mac App Store edition [3] will not support the automatic update feature. ($13.99 new, free update, 16.7 MB, release notes [4], 10.7+)
