Comment 1 Jesse Adelman 2008-11-18 22:54:29 UTC
The Tidy project's version scheme is very opaque, but here's the SVN revision info:

The project has been active, adding new features and fixing bugs, but by "hiding" progress in SVN (versus releasing "stable" version tarballs), it is no wonder that Gentoo hasn't updated it in a long time. That said, I hope to see updates soon! :)

From the Tidy news, since last ebuild update:
'18 June 2008

The configuration option anchor-as-name has been added.

13 August 2007

The configuration option merge-spans has been added.

14 June 2007

The configuration option sort-attributes has been added. Additionally, the option show-body-only has been extended to accept "auto".'
