RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT
phpDocumentor 1.2.0 STABLE is released at http://www.phpdoc.org

the phpDocumentor development team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.2.0 STABLE. This is a stable released and is ready for use in production systems.

phpDocumentor is an automatic documenting tool similar to JavaDoc. However, its abilities go far beyond simple extraction of API documentation from source code. phpDocumentor can link to and from external user manuals, highlight source code with cross-referencing hyperlinks, and output in HTML, CHM (MS Windows help file format), PDF (Adobe Acrobat file format), and in XML DocBook for the use of PEAR developers. phpDocumentor is very fast, and makes use of the tokenizer extension for PHP 4.3.0+ users to parse faster than competing auto-documentors.

Users upgrading from phpDocumentor 1.1.0 will find many new features and much greater stability, as several old bugs were isolated and killed in this release.

New features (short list) include:
-new tags @uses, @example, @filesource, @internal, {@internal}}
-parsing is 2-5 times faster
-user-level documentation (used to generate phpDocumentor manual at http://www.phpdoc.org/docs)
-PDF and CHM converters are ready for use
-all HTML templates have had an overhaul, and there are several new ones
-many more features
