It has been a few months since the initial release of MDTest. I
haven't changed the testsuites much since then, but I've made a few
noticeable improvement to the test processor itself.

You can download MDTest here:

MDTest is also available now from the Git repository mirror at

MDTest 1.1:

* Tests files without a corresponding result file are now processed
and their results add up in the benchmarking sections at the end.
These tests can neither fail nor pass however.

* Result files can now have the .xhtml extension. When the output
is compared against such a file and the normalization option is
on (-n), results are normalized using the XML parser instead of
the more permissive HTML parser and any output which is not
well-formed will fail the test.

* All the test result files have been converted to the .xhtml
extension, except in a few cases where the output contains HTML
blocks which are not well-formed XML but are still valid HTML.

* Fixed the image test in the Markdown testsuite so that it does
not expect the presence of an empty title attribute when none
was specified.

* Added a regression test for the horizontal rule issue fixed in
PHP Markdown 1.0.1k.
