# v0.6.1 releashed released

Posted (2 years ago)

This is a new version of Publ. The main change is how deletions (using ~~markdown~~ and <del>HTML</del> <s>tags</s>) get converted to plaintext — namely they get removed, to make it make more visible sense.

Doing this also led to refactoring the internal strip_html function to provide a bit more flexibility, so now it’s now available as a Jinja2 template filter.

I also removed a couple of troublesome micro-optimizations that were causing more trouble than they were worth.
