	This version of doxia includes an upgraded version of the markdown processor.  Combined with
the upgraded maven-site-plugin, fixes two very important bugs:

	* MUCH better handling of URLs.  Older versions would exit with failure if it hit hdfs://
as a URL, despite being perfectly legal. [I’ve been "hand-fixing” release notes and the
like to avoid hitting this one.]
	* Parser doesn’t have the infinite loop bug when it hit certain combinations of broken
markdown, usually tables.

	I agree that it’s… less than ideal. 

	When I wrote the original version of that patch months ago, I was hoping it was a stop-gap.
 Worst case, we publish our own version of the plugin.  But given that users will be empowered
to fetch their own notes at build time, I felt it was important that this be more bullet proof…
