DocBook Updates

Volume 8, Issue 100; 08 Jul 2005; last modified 08 Oct 2010

There's a new DTD, a new RELAX NG Grammar, and updated book pages.

Just a few quick announcements:

  • Last week, the DocBook TC released DocBook V4.5CR1, that's the candidate release for DocBook V4.5 which we expect to push all the way through to OASIS Standard. If you're using DocBook V4.x, please try it out!

  • Yesterday, I published DocBook NG: The “Mezcal” Release, with support for validating XInclude (before XInclude expansion; that doesn't take the place of performing validation after XInclude expansion!). I don't know if that's a good idea or not.

  • And today, to support the “Mezcal” release, I updated the reference pages in DocBook 5.0: The Definitive Guide. Note that because XInclude support makes a bunch of content models a lot more complex, the simpler non-XInclude content models are shown in the book. I don't know if that's a good idea or not, either.

Share and enjoy.
