5.0.0 b1

  • #​10164: Support Docutils 0.18_. Patch by Adam Turner.

.. _Docutils 0.18: https://docutils.sourceforge.io/RELEASE-NOTES.html#release-0-18-2021-10-26

Incompatible changes

5.0.0 b1

  • #​10031: autosummary: sphinx.ext.autosummary.import_by_name() now raises ImportExceptionGroup instead of ImportError when it failed to import target object. Please handle the exception if your extension uses the function to import Python object. As a workaround, you can disable the behavior via grouped_exception=False keyword argument until v7.0.
  • #​9962: texinfo: Customizing styles of emphasized text via @definfoenclose command was not supported because the command was deprecated since texinfo 6.8
  • #​2068: :confval:intersphinx_disabled_reftypes has changed default value from an empty list to ['std:doc'] as avoid too surprising silent intersphinx resolutions. To migrate: either add an explicit inventory name to the references intersphinx should resolve, or explicitly set the value of this configuration variable to an empty list.
  • #​10197: html theme: Reduce body_min_width setting in basic theme to 360px
  • #​9999: LaTeX: separate terms from their definitions by a CR (refs: #​9985)
  • #​10062: Change the default language to 'en' if any language is not set in conf.py

5.0.0 final

  • #​10474: :confval:language does not accept None as it value. The default value of language becomes to 'en' now. Patch by Adam Turner and Takeshi KOMIYA.


5.0.0 b1

  • #​10028: jQuery and underscore.js will no longer be automatically injected into themes from Sphinx 6.0. If you develop a theme or extension that uses the jQuery, $, or $u global objects, you need to update your JavaScript or use the mitigation below.

    To re-add jQuery and underscore.js, you will need to copy jquery.js and underscore.js from the Sphinx repository_ to your static directory, and add the following to your layout.html:

    .. _the Sphinx repository: https://github.com/sphinx-doc/sphinx/tree/v4.3.2/sphinx/themes/basic/static .. code-block:: html+jinja

    {%- block scripts %} {{ super() }} {%- endblock %}

    Patch by Adam Turner.

  • setuptools integration. The build_sphinx sub-command for setup.py is marked as deprecated to follow the policy of setuptools team.

  • The locale argument of sphinx.util.i18n:babel_format_date() becomes required

  • The language argument of sphinx.util.i18n:format_date() becomes required

  • sphinx.builders.html.html5_ready

  • sphinx.io.read_doc()

  • sphinx.util.docutils.__version_info__

  • sphinx.util.docutils.is_html5_writer_available()

  • sphinx.writers.latex.LaTeXWriter.docclasses

Features added

  • #​5157, #​10251: Inline code is able to be highlighted via :rst:dir:role directive
