Although I prefer LaTeX to ConTeXt for my typesetting and publishing
work, I agree that ConTeXt is an excellent tool, and for many users it
can provide a number of advantages over LaTeX. I agree also that Jason
has done a great job with ox-context, and I join in the congratulations.

I recommend LaTeX users, and even users of LaTeX via Org-Mode, to give
ConTeXt a try, if you haven't tried it yet. And of course try
ox-context. One of the historical drawbacks of ConTeXt has always been
its poor documentation, compared to LaTeX's documentation (it's not
really deficient, but what abounds is the documentation at a more
technical level). But luckily there is now an excellent ConTeXt
introductory manual, written by Joaquín Ataz López and with translations
(so far) into English, French, Russian and Serbian:


Best regards,
