This is an automatic notification about a new xml2rfc release, 
v2.18.0, generated when running the mkrelease script.

Release notes:

xml2rfc (2.18.0) ietf; urgency=medium

  This release provides additional support for <referencegroup> rendering, and
  and adds validation of fetched reference files before they are used or put
  in the reference cache.  A warning for un-cited references was added to the
  preptool; this has been present for v2 renderers for a long time, but was
  absent from the v3 specification.  A number of bugs have also been fixed.
  From the commit log:

  * Fixed an issue with the v3 html renderer when given an author without 
    an address entry.  Fixes issue #390.

  * Fixed a bug in the HTML renderer's SVG reading exception code.  Added
    support for a <referencegroup> target attribute, and suppression of target
    URLs for indivudual entries within a <referencegroup>.

  * Adjusted the text rendering of reference annotations to match the html 
    rendering better.  Added support for <referencegroup> target rendering.  
    Suppressed rendering of target URLs for individual entries in a 

  * Added a preptool check for reference citations, as earlier provided by v2
    renderers.  Made the reference section numbering code more general, to
    support additional levels in the future.

  * Added an attribute 'target' to <referencegroup>, in order to be able to
    link out to for instance IETF STD and BCP documents.

  * Added ValueError to the exceptions caught on 'import weasyprint' as a 
    workaround for a problem in Python's locale.py file under 3.7.

  * Added the Python version to the version list emitted with --version 

  * Added validation of included reference files before usage, to prevent
    html files fetched from dns-spoofing captive portals from being used.

The preferred way to install xml2rfc is by doing 'pip install xml2rfc',
and 'pip install --upgrade xml2rfc' to upgrade.  If there are system-
installed python modules which pip will not upgrade, you may have to
use 'pip install --upgrade --no-deps xml2rfc' and install dependencies

The new version is also available through SVN checkout, with
  'svn checkout http://svn.tools.ietf.org/svn/tools/xml2rfc/tags/cli/2.18.0'
