## Blahtexml 0.5 is out

16 May 2008

The main difference of **blahtexml 0.5** with version 0.4.4 is that both blahtex and blahtexml now accept Unicode mathematical symbols and Greek letters as input in math mode. These symbols are equivalent to their command counterparts. For instance, the following two lines are equivalent and will give the same output:

`<eq b:inline="\Phi \leq \Omega \approx \Gamma"/>`

`<eq b:inline="Φ≤Ω≈Γ"/>`

The first line uses the traditional TeX commands, while the second line uses the Unicode symbols directly. The full list of accepted symbols can be found in the manual.
