The original author of blahtex is known in Wikipedia circles as Dmharvey. He released version 0.4.4 (in C++) on 25/Mar/2006. He is no longer actively developing it, but Gilles van Assche has picked up development work at http://gva.noekeon.org/blahtexml/ .
Jitse Niesen has been working on a test wiki to demonstrate how blahtex can be integrated into MediaWiki. The aim is for MediaWiki to be able to output MathML in addition to the HTML and PNG graphical output that it can presently do (via texvc). See also /Embedding Blahtex in MediaWiki.
- Supports all symbols in TeX, LaTeX and AMS-LaTeX
- Supports non-ASCII characters (in PNGs, "extended latin", cyrillic and japanese are all ok)
- Detailed syntax error reporting (not just "syntax error")
- Knows TeX's spacing rules and generates MathML spacing markup accordingly
