DocBook V5.0b7

Volume 9, Issue 75; 28 Jul 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

This is the seventh test release of DocBook V5.0.

This release includes a few small improvements.

  1. Fixed RFE 1520074: defined separate patterns for all the effectivity attributes to make customization easier.

  2. Attempted to address RFE 1512505: added an audience effectivity attribute.

  3. Renamed audience, origin, and level attributes on simplemsgentry to msgaud, msgorig, and msglevel, respectively. This is a better parallel with the descendent elements of msgentry and avoids a conflict with the newly introduced audience effectivity attribute.

  4. Added startinglinenumber attribute to orderedlist.

  5. Fixed bug where one of fileref or entityref was required on imagedata even when the content was inline MathML or SVG.

I think it's possible that the next release will be “Candidate Release 1”. If you haven't tested V5.0 on your documents yet, please do!
