Expanded Beta

Downrunner has expanded its beta to support the instrumentation of all Markdown files on public GitHub respositories. Previously, only README.md and a specially named file, downrunner.md were supported.

Downrunner has made its beta program open to all GitHub users without requiring registration. You may well ask how can we know who is in the beta? Well, you are a GitHub user and the repository in which you use Downrunner will show-up as a referrer in our logs. We are telling you Downrunner is a beta so you know there is work to be done. We do not see any reason at this point to limit access to most of our features. If you need help you can post questions to Downrunner Support. We do have a private beta that provides early access to some additional features.

Please see our home page for more details on the beta.

Org Charts

In addition pies, bars, columns, lines and tables supported in the core chart module, organization charts are now available via orgchart.

A small demo of orgchart is available. Additional charts like Gannts and guages are planned. These will be separate modules so that we can provide as simple an interface to use as possible.

LaTex Math

The latex module supports conversion of ASCII latex expressions into images. Computation is planned for the future.

A small demo is available.

Feature Voting

We have a lot more feature in the pipeline. Help us prioritize liking enhancements at Downrunner Support.
