I’m getting ready to release IDLdoc 3.5. This is mostly bug fixes and cleanup, but there is one nice new feature — prompt hiding. This allows the docs to show IDL prompts with commands and expected output in code snippets, but allows the user to hide the prompts and output by clicking “hide prompts”. This is great for copy-and-pasting an example to the command line (while still being able to check your output against the expected output)! For example, see the “Examples” section of the mg_n_smallest [docs][prompt-example].

The complete list of fixes and features is:

* Added list of inherited properties to class descriptions.

* Provides workaround for possible bug in IDL where list object contains
strange variables that report as the type code for object, but are not
actually objects (they are pointers).

* Fixed bug where Categories page showed private or hidden items.

* Added hide/show prompts in code snippets in HTML output from rst markup
