DocBook V5.0b3

Volume 9, Issue 14; 01 Feb 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

The DocBook Technical Committee has published the third test release of DocBook V5.0. Something for you to do on my winter vacation: test, test, test.

This release includes the changes agreed at the 18 Jan 2006 meeting.

  1. Fixed RFE 1358844: allow multiple imageobjects inside an imageobjectco. Updated reference documentation.

  2. Restored default values to the type attribute on simplelist and the choice and rep attributes on methodparam, arg, and group. Fixed a bug in paramdef where plain was accidentally allowed as a choice. These defaults are reflected in the generated XML DTD as well.

  3. Reduced the content model of blockquote which seemed way too broad.

  4. Improved reference documentation for attributes on many elements.

I've updated DocBook 5: The Definitive Guide as wellHere's hoping I haven't made any errors in either place..
