I cleaned up a few visual bugs in the beta and IDLdoc 3.6 is ready for release. Get the new version at the (releases)[1] page of the GitHub IDLdoc wiki. Features are the same as listed for the beta:

  • Checks for updates when using the VERSION keyword.
  • Added Exelis VIS Doc Center output.
  • Provides links to IDL library routines referenced in rst markup code syntax.
  • HTML rst markup directive to include HTML directly into output (contributed by Phillip Bitzer).
  • Reporting only non-empty, non-comment lines in routines/files now.
  • Improved algorithm for computing cyclomatic complexity and also reporting modified cyclomatic complexity.
  • Updated to MathJax 2.0 and using the complete MathJax distribution for better LaTeX rendering.
  • Listing methods inherited from parent classes.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.

UPDATE 6/11/14: I released 3.6.1 adding some missing library routines in the .sav file. Download is on the same page.
