What’s New in this Release : Markdown source file support
 
Markdown source file support
Markdown is a simple way to write structured content using pure text. It has all the advantages of plain text, but with the organizational power of a word processor. The end goal is a minimalist writing system that you can use to get your thoughts down, and then export them elsewhere without worrying too much about the appearance.
In ePublisher, files with an .md extension are processed as Markdown input files.
