DocBook V5.0CR7

Volume 10, Issue 102; 01 Oct 2007; last modified 08 Oct 2010

There's always one more bug, I guess. Eventually, we'll ship anyway.

Since 5.0CR5, we've fixed a few more bugs:

  1. Fixed RFE 1759782: Allow uri anywhere email occurs.

  2. Fixed RFE 1784312: Allow book to be completely empty; allow personblurb and titleabbrev in bibliographic contexts.

  3. Fixed RFE 1795884: Allow MathML in inlineequation.

  4. Fixed RFE 1800916: Allow keycap (and friends) in userinput.

Those fixes are now available in DocBook V5.0CR7CR7? What happened to CR6, I hear you ask? Well, I released it, then realized I'd overlooked a request from the Publishing Subcommittee to reorganize some of the source files to make customization easier. So CR7 is, I believe, logically identical to the CR6 release that came out a few days earlier, but its sources are organized a bit differently.

We decided to classify a few other things that have been reported as “feature requests” rather than “bugs”; those don't get fixed until after 5.0 is official.

The TC meets next on 7 November when we'll stamp this one official if no new bugs are reported.

Have at it!


We, of the Publishing Subcommittee, thank you very much Norm!

We hope this new organization of the source files will make it much easier for folks to create customizations, and will make it easier for us to release our customization geared for publishers.
