[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: asciidoc-8.2.6-1

Hash: SHA1

A new version of the asciidoc package, asciidoc 8.2.6-1, is now available
for download, replacing 8.2.5-1 as current.

This is a new upstream release, with upstream changes listed below.  See
also the package documentation in /usr/share/doc/asciidoc-8.2.6/.

AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing short documents, articles,
books and UNIX man pages. AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML and
DocBook markups using the asciidoc(1) command. AsciiDoc is highly
configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax and the backend output
markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be
customized and extended by the user.

   Bug fixes
