GNU Texinfo 7.0 has been officially released.

Texinfo is the official documentation format of the GNU project and integrates well with GNU Emacs. Also used by many non-GNU projects. It was developed by RMS and Bob Chassell with the main purpose of providing a syntax and format that facilitates the typesetting of software manuals.

Texinfo produces output in multiple formats based on a single source file, including online and print formats: HTML, PDF, DVI, Info, DocBook, LaTeX, EPUB 3. Therefore, if a user uses Texinfo, only one file needs to be written, there is no need to write a different file for online information, nor another file for printed manuals.
