MathJax Community Update #8

It’s been far too long since we shared all the great new stuff from around the MathJax community!


MathJax 2.5.3 is out. This patch releases should wrap up 2.5.x and we’re making good progress on the upcoming 2.6 release.

We have also started the MathJax semantic enrichment project – watch out for a longer post on this coming soon!

Peter had a guest post over at Wiley’s Exchanges Blog.

Oh, and we also released MathJax-node v0.3.0 so go grab it via npm.
