Pygments now tries to use the
importlib.metadatamodule to discover plugins instead of the slower
pkg_resources(#2155). In particular, this largely speeds up the
pygmentizescript when the lexer is not specified.
importlib.metadatais only available in the Python standard library since Python 3.8. For older versions, there exists an
importlib_metadatabackport on PyPI. For this reason, Pygments now defines a packaging extra
plugins, which adds a requirement on
importlib_metadataif 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

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.

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 MoinMoin parser that uses Pygments. With it, you get Pygments highlighting in Moin Wiki pages.
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.

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

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.
Added a commandprefix option to the LatexFormatter which allows to control how the command names are constructed.

encodingoption of lexers and formatters).
Some improvements in the C(++) lexers handling comments and line continuations.
