Description Markdown is a lightweight markup language thatmakes it easy to write structurally simple documents. Existing tools for rendering markdown documents to PDF treat TeX as a black box. In contrast, the Markdown package provides support for styling and typesetting markdown documents in TeX, extending a TeXie's toolbox rather than forcing her to replace TeX with a more limited tool. Since its release in 2016, the package has received several important updates improving the functionality and user experience. In this article, I will reintroduce the package, and describe its new functionality and documentation.
