The latest version of the DocBook XSL stylesheets, v1.73.0, has been released!
The .0 designator means this is the beta version, and should be tested. If no bugs are found with the new distribution, a .1 release will be issued shortly!.
Hopefully a new version of the namespace-aware stylesheets for processing DocBook v5.0 documents will be following soon. UPDATE: The 1.73.0 namespace-aware version is also available now!
The stylesheets can be downloaded from here.
Features in this release include:
This release includes important bug fixes and adds the following significant feature changes: New localizations and localization updates We added two new localizations: Latvian and Esperanto, and made updates to the Czech, Chinese Simplified, Mongolian, Serbian, Italian, and Ukrainian localizations. ISO690 citation style for bibliography output. Set the bibliography.style parameter to iso690 to use ISO690 style. New documentation for processing instructions (PI) The reference documentation that ships with the release now includes documentation on all PIs that you can use to control output from the stylesheets. New profiling parameters for audience and wordsize You can now do profiling based on the values of the audience and wordsize attributes. Changes to man-page output The manpages stylesheet now supports single-pass profiling and single-pass DocBook 5 namespace stripping (just as the HTML and FO stylesheets also do). Also, added handling for mediaobject & inlinemediaobject. (Each imagedata, audiodata, or videodata element within a mediaobject or inline mediaobject is now treated as a "notesource" and so handled in much the same way as links and annotation/alt/footnote are in manpages output.) And added the man.authors.section.enabled and man.copyright.section.enabled parameters to enable control over whether output includes auto-generated AUTHORS and COPYRIGHT sections. Highlighting support for C The highlighting mechanism for generating syntax-highlighted code snippets in output now supports C code listings (along with Java, PHP, XSLT, and others). Experimental docbook-xsl-update script We added an experimental docbook-xsl-update script, the purpose of which is to facilitate easy sync-up to the latest docbook-xsl snapshot (by means of rsync).
