I have uploaded the latest beta of the script library for 
typesetting wiki page collections into PDF files. All users 
of older beta releases are likely to benefit from the new 
features and improvements. The scripts can be downloaded from
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/PublishPDF. This includes 
the latest issues report.

Features of this release are:
- improved image handling
-- large images are shrunk to fit the printed page
-- images float to the next page if there is no room at the
   current position  
-- left and right floated images float to the inside margin
   of printed pages
-- image alt text is treated as a caption; if the image
   already has a caption, the alt text is used as the text
   for the list of figures
-- a paragraph ending in [[<<]] that follows an image is
   treated as part of the caption and floats with it

- enhanced pdf bookmarks and document table of contents
-- the first heading on a page and all subsequent headings
   of the same level are treated as division markers
-- such headings generate pdf bookmarks when typesetting
   a single page
-- optionally, they can be used to generate page breaks
   and a table of contents
-- in published page collections, such headings may
   optionally be autonumbered

- long advanced tables now automatically break across
  pages (long simple tables still don't)

- add a (:typeset-page:) directive for sites wanting to
  disable the 'every page has a pdf icon' option and
  let authors decide which pages will offer an option
  to typeset the page

- various bug fixes and minor improvements

The next release will focus on improved handling of wikistyles.
