    • Teraterm: Various improvements (#2165)

    • Spice: add support for the recently added features including more builtin functions and bin, oct, hex number formats (#2206)

  • Added styles:

  • Pygments now tries to use the importlib.metadata module to discover plugins instead of the slower pkg_resources (#2155). In particular, this largely speeds up the pygmentize script when the lexer is not specified.

    importlib.metadata is only available in the Python standard library since Python 3.8. For older versions, there exists an importlib_metadata backport on PyPI. For this reason, Pygments now defines a packaging extra plugins, which adds a requirement on importlib_metadata if the Python version is older than 3.8. Thus, in order to install Pygments with optimal plugin support even for old Python versions, you should do:

    pip install pygments[plugins]

    Pygments still falls back on pkg_resources if neither importlib.metadata nor importlib_metadata is found, but it will be slower.

  • Silently ignore BrokenPipeError in the command-line interface (#2193).

  • The HtmlFormatter now uses the linespans attribute for anchorlinenos if the lineanchors attribute is unset (#2026).

  • The highlight, lex and format functions no longer wrongly report “argument must be a lexer/formatter instance, not a class” in some cases where this is not the actual problem (#2123).

  • Fix warnings in doc build (#2124).

  • The codetagify filter now recognizes FIXME tags by default (#2150).

  • The pygmentize command now recognizes if the COLORTERM environment variable is set to a value indicating that true-color support is available. In that case, it uses the TerminalTrueColorFormatter by default (#2160)

  • Remove redundant caches for filename patterns (#2153)

  • Use new non-deprecated Pillow API for text bounding box in ImageFormatter (#2198)

  • Remove default_style (#930, #2183)

  • Stop treating DeprecationWarnings as errors in the unit tests (#2196)

If you have subclassed HtmlFormatter.wrap, you may have to adjust the logic.

Version 2.9.0

(released May 3rd, 2021)

  • Added lexers:

  • Updated lexers:

  • Add Pango formatter (#1727)

  • Autopygmentize uses file first instead of pygments -N (#1786)

  • Fix links (#1716)

  • Fix issue with LaTeX formatter and minted (#1734, #1735, #1736, #1737)

  • Fix CTag related issue (#1724)

  • Recognize .leex as Elixir templates

  • Fix incorrect variable being accessed (#1748)

  • Updated filename handling in HTML formatter if linenos=’table’ (#1757)

    • Previously the filename would be emitted within the <td> holding the code, but outside the <pre>. This would invariably break the alignment with line numbers.

    • Now if filename is specified, a separate <tr> is emitted before the table content which contains a single <th> with colspan=2 so it spans both the line number and code columns. The filename is still within <span class=”filename”>…</span> so any existing styles should still apply, although the CSS path may need to change.

    • For an example of the new output format see table_cls_step_1_start_1_special_0_noanchor_filename.html in the tests/html_linenos_expected_output/ directory.

    • For more details and discussion see the issue

  • Added styles:

    • Gruvbox light+dark (#1763)

Version 2.8.0

(released February 14, 2021)

  • Added lexers:

  • Updated lexers:

    • AutoIt: Support single quoted strings (#1667, #1663)

    • C/C++ & related: Fix mishandling */ (#1695)

    • Cocoa: Add builtin types (#1703)

    • OpenEdge (#1696)

    • Ruby: Better method name handling (#1531)

    • Stata: Updated keywords (#1470)

  • The pygmentize script now uses argparse, all options should work as before

  • Add pygmentize -C option to guess a lexer from content

  • With this release, Pygments moves to a new internal testing system (#1649.) See for details. The main advantage of this new change is a much better test coverage of all existing example lexers. It also makes it much easier to add new test snippets.

  • Make guessing prefer Python 3 lexer

  • Do not guess MIME or SQL without reason

  • Changed setuptools to use a declarative config through setup.cfg. Building Pygments now requires setuptools 39.2+.

  • Add markdown to MarkdownLexer aliases (#1687)

  • Change line number handling

    • In <table> based output, the td.linenos element will have either a normal or special class attached. Previously, only special line numbers got a class. This prevents styles from getting applied twice - once via <pre>, once via <span class="special">. This also means that td.linenos pre is no longer styled, instead, use td.linenos .normal and td.linenos .special.

    • In the “inline” style, the DOM element order was changed. The line number is added first, then the line is wrapped is wrapped by the highlighter. This fixes lines not being fully highlighted.

    • The visual output for inline and non-inline line numbers & highlighting, as well as class-based and inline styling is now consistent.

    • Line number styles are set to background-color: transparent and color: inherit by default. This works much better with dark styles which don’t have colors set for line numbers.

  • Remove “raw” alias from RawTokenLexer, so that it cannot be selected by alias.

  • Fix RawTokenLexer to work in Python 3 and handle exceptions.

  • Add prompt colors to the Solarized theme (#1529)

  • Image formatter supports background colors now (#1374)

  • Add support for anchors in conjunction with inline line numbers (#1591)

    • Coq (#1648)

    • Fortran: Add missing keywords (#1635, #1665)

    • Ini (#1624)

    • Bash lexer now correctly highlights heredocs without preceding whitespace.

    • Vim lexer now highlights hex colors properly and knows a couple more keywords.

  • Support doc comments in the PHP lexer.

  • Added a -P option to the command line mode which can be used to give options whose values contain commas or equals signs.

  • Added 256-color terminal formatter.

  • Added an experimental SVG formatter.

  • Added the lineanchors option to the HTML formatter, thanks to Ian Charnas for the idea.

  • Gave the line numbers table a CSS class in the HTML formatter.

    • Vim Script, by Tim Hatch

  • The HTML formatter now has a second line-numbers mode in which it will just integrate the numbers in the same <pre> tag as the code.

  • The CSharpLexer now is Unicode-aware, which means that it has an option that can be set so that it correctly lexes Unicode identifiers allowed by the C# specs.

  • Added a RaiseOnErrorTokenFilter that raises an exception when the lexer generates an error token, and a VisibleWhitespaceFilter that converts whitespace (spaces, tabs, newlines) into visible characters.

  • Fixed the do_insertions() helper function to yield correct indices.

  • The ReST lexer now automatically highlights source code blocks in “.. sourcecode:: language” and “.. code:: language” directive blocks.

  • Improved the default style (thanks to Tiberius Teng). The old default is still available as the “emacs” style (which was an alias before).

  • The get_style_defs method of HTML formatters now uses the cssclass option as the default selector if it was given.

  • Changed the exception raised if no suitable lexer, formatter etc. is found in one of the get_*_by_* functions to a custom exception, pygments.util.ClassNotFound. It is, however, a subclass of ValueError in order to retain backwards compatibility.

  • Added a -H command line option which can be used to get the docstring of a lexer, formatter or filter.

  • Made the handling of lexers and formatters more consistent. The aliases and filename patterns of formatters are now attributes on them.

  • Added an OCaml lexer, thanks to Adam Blinkinsop.

  • Made the HTML formatter more flexible, and easily subclassable in order to make it easy to implement custom wrappers, e.g. alternate line number markup. See the documentation.

  • Added an outencoding option to all formatters, making it possible to override the encoding (which is used by lexers and formatters) when using the command line interface. Also, if using the terminal formatter and the output file is a terminal and has an encoding attribute, use it if no encoding is given.

  • Made it possible to just drop style modules into the styles subpackage of the Pygments installation.

  • Added a “state” keyword argument to the using helper.
