This release-notes document is available in the following formats: HTML, PDF, plain text; it provides a per-release list of enhancements and changes to the stylesheets’ public APIs (user-configurable parameters) and excludes descriptions of most bug fixes. For a complete list of all changes (including all bug fixes) that have been made since the previous release, see the separate NEWS (plain text) or NEWS.html files. Also available: An online hyperlinked change history (warning: big file) of all changes made over the entire history of the codebase.

As with all DocBook Project “dot one plus” releases, this release aspires to be stable (in contrast to dot-zero releases, which are experimental).

    even if that typed index didn't include any symbols (they were in the other types).
              

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.75.2 release.

  • dleidert: lists.xsl

                Fix two indentation issues: In the first case there is no corresponding .RS
    macro (Debian #519438, sf.net 2793873). In the second case an .RS instead of
    the probably intended .sp leads to an indentation bug (Debian #527309,
    sf.net #2642139).
              

Epub

The following changes have been made to the epub code since the 1.75.2 release.

  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/examples/AMasqueOfDays.epub; docbook.xsl; bin/spec/epub_spec.rb

    to prevent problems with the kindlegen machinery
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/epub_regressions_spec.rb; bin/spec/files/partintro.xml; docbook.x⋯

                Adding support for partintros with sect2s, 3s, etc
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: docbook.xsl

                Adding param to workaround horrific ADE bug with the inability to process <br>
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: docbook.xsl

                Add support for authorgroup/author in OPF metadata (via Michael Wiedmann)
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/epub_regressions_spec.rb

                Remove <b> and <i> elements "discouraged in favor of style sheets" from
    XHTML, XHTML 1.1 (and therefore EPUB) outputs by changing html2xhtml.xsl.
    
    Fixes bug #2873153: No <b> and <i> tags in XHTML/EPUB
    
    Added regression to EPUB specs:
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/lib/docbook.rb; bin/spec/files/DejaVuSerif-Italic.otf; docbook.xsl; bi⋯

                This resolves bug #2873142, Please add support for multiple embedded fonts
    
    
    If you navigate to a checkout of DocBook-XSL and go to:
    xsl/epub/bin/spec/files
    You can now run the following command:
    
    ../../dbtoepub -f DejaVuSerif.otf -f DejaVuSerif-Italic.otf -c test.css
    -s test_cust.xsl orm.book.001.xml
    
    In dbtoepub, the following option can be used more than once:
    -f, --font [OTF FILE] Embed OTF FILE in .epub.
    
    The underlying stylesheet now accepts a comma-separated list of font file
    names rather than just one as the RENAMED epub.embedded.fonts ('s' added).
    
    The runnable EPUB spec now includes:
    - should be valid .epub after including more than one embedded font
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: docbook.xsl

                Improve the selection of cover images when working in DocBook 4.x land (work in progress)
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/epub_regressions_spec.rb; docbook.xsl

                Improve the quality of the OPF spine regression by ensuring that the spine
    elements for deeply nested refentries are in order and adjacent to their
    opening wrapper XHTML chunk.
              
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/epub_regressions_spec.rb; docbook.xsl; bin/spec/files/orm.book.00⋯

                Add more careful handling of refentries to ensure that they always appear in the opf:spine.
    This was only a problem when refentries were pushed deep into the hierarchy (like inside
    a sect2), but presented navigational problems for many reading systems (despite the
    correct NCX references). This may *not* be the best solution, but attacking a better
    chunking strategy for refentries was too big a nut to crack at this time.
              

Eclipse

The following changes have been made to the eclipse code since the 1.75.2 release.

Params

The following changes have been made to the params since the 1.74.0 release.

  • The change was to add man.output.better.ps.enabled parameter, with its default value set to zero. If the value of the man.output.better.ps.enabled parameter is non-zero, certain markup is embedded in each generated man page such that PostScript output from the man -Tps command for that page will include a number of enhancements designed to improve the quality of that output. If man.output.better.ps.enabled is zero (the default), no such markup is embedded in generated man pages, and no enhancements are included in the PostScript output generated from those man pages by the man -Tps command. WARNING: The enhancements provided by this parameter rely on features that are specific to groff (GNU troff) and that are not part of "classic" AT&T troff or any of its derivatives. Therefore, any man pages you generate with this parameter enabled will be readable only on systems on which the groff (GNU troff) program is installed, such as GNU/Linux systems. The pages will not not be readable on systems on with the classic troff (AT&T troff) command is installed. NOTE: The value of this parameter only affects PostScript output generated from the man command. It has no effect on output generated using the FO backend. TIP: You can generate PostScript output for any man page by running the following command: man FOO -Tps > FOO.ps You can then generate PDF output by running the following command: ps2pdf FOO.ps

  • Robert Stayton: writing.mode.xml

    writing mode param used to set text direction.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: email.mailto.enabled.xml

    Added new param email.mailto.enabled for FO output.

     -- it is no longer needed to specify path XSLTHL configuration file using Java property
     -- support for new languages, including Perl, Python and Ruby was added

Highlighting

The following changes have been made to the highlighting code since the 1.74.0 release.

  • Jirka Kosek: cpp-hl.xml; c-hl.xml; tcl-hl.xml; php-hl.xml; common.xsl; perl-hl.xml; delphi⋯

Release Notes: 1.74.0

This release includes important bug fixes and adds the following significant feature changes:

.epub target

Paul Norton (Adobe) and Keith Fahlgren(O'Reilly Media) have donated code that generates .epub documents from DocBook input. An alpha-reference implementation in Ruby has also been provided.

.epub is an open standard of the The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), a the trade and standards association for the digital publishing industry.

Read more about this target in epub/README

XHTML 1.1 target

To support .epub output, a strict XHTML 1.1 target has been added. The stylesheets for this output are generated and are quite similar to the XHTML target.

Gentext updates

A number of locales have been updated.

Roundtrip improvements

Table, figure, template syncronization, and character style improvements have been made for WordML & Pages. Support added for OpenOffice.org.

First implementation of a libxslt extension

A stylesheet extension for libxslt, written in Python, has been added. The extension is a function for adjusting column widths in CALS tables. See extensions/README.LIBXSLT for more information.

The following is a list of changes that have been made since the 1.73.2 release.

Gentext

The following changes have been made to the gentext code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/id.xml

    Checked in changes to Indonesion locale submitted by Euis Luhuanam a long time ago.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/lt.xml

    Added changes to Lithuanian locate submitted a long time back by Nikolajus Krauklis.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/hu.xml

    fixed error in lowercase.alpha definition in Hungarian locale
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/nb.xml

    Corrected language code for nb locale, and restored missing "startquote" key.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/ja.xml

    Committed changes to ja locale file, from Akagi Kobayashi. Adds bracket quotes around many xref instances that did not have them
    before.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile

    "no" locale is now "nb"
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/nb.xml

    Update Norwegian Bokmål translation. Thanks to Hans F. Nordhaug.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/no.xml; locale/nb.xml

    per message from Hans F. Nordhaug, correct identifier for
    Norwegian Bokmål is "nb" (not "no") and has been for quite some
    time now...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/ja.xml

    Converted ja.xml source file to use real unicode characters so
    that the actual glyphs so up when you edit it in a text editor
    (instead of the character references).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/ja.xml

    Checked in changes to ja.xml locale file. Thanks to Akagi Kobayashi.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/it.xml

    Changes from Federico Zenith
  • Dongsheng Song: locale/zh_cn.xml

    Added missing translations.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: l10n.xsl

    Added new template "l10.language.name" for retrieving the
    English-language name of the lang setting of the current document.
    Closes #1916837. Thanks to Simon Kennedy.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    fixed syntax error
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    fixed a couple of typos
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    refined handling of cases where refentry "source" or "manual"
    metadata is missing or when we use fallback content instead. We
    now report a Warning if we use fallback content.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    don't use refmiscinfo@class=date value as fallback for refentry
    "source" or "manual" metadata fields
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    Made reporting of missing refentry metadata more quiet:
    
      - we no longer report anything if usable-but-not-preferred
        metadata is found; we just quietly use whatever we manage to
        find
    
      - we now only report missing "source" metadata if the refentry
        is missing BOTH "source name" and "version" metadata; if it
        has one but not the other, we use whichever one it has and
        don't report anything as missing
    
    The above changes were made because testing with some "real world"
    source reveals that some authors are intentionally choosing to use
    "non preferred" markup for some metadata, and also choosing to
    omit "source name" or "version" metadata in there DocBook XML. So
    it does no good to give them pedantic reminders about what they
    already know...
    
    Also, changed code to cause "fixme" text to be inserted in output
    in particular cases:
    
      - if we can't manage to find any "source" metadata at all, we
        now put fixme text into the output
    
      - if we can't manage to find any "manual" metadata a all, we 
        now put fixme text into the output
    
    The "source" and "manual" metadata is necessary information, so
    buy putting the fixme stuff in the output, we alert users to the
    need problem of it being missing.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    When generating manpages output, we no longer report anything if
    the refentry source is missing date or pubdate content. In
    practice, many users intentionally omit the date from the source
    because they explicitly want it to be generated.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: l10n.xml

    further change needed for switch from no locale to nb.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: common.xsl

    Added support for orgname in authorgroup. Thanks to Camille
    Bégnis.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile

    "no" locale is now "nb"
  • Mauritz Jeanson: stripns.xsl

    Removed the template matching "ng:link|db:link" (in order to make @xlink:show 
    work with <link> elements). As far as I can tell, this template is no longer needed.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: entities.ent

    Moved declaration of comment.block.parents entity to common/entities.ent.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titles.xsl

    Added an update the fix made in revision 7528 (handling of xref/link in no.anchor.mode mode).
    Having xref in title is not a problem as long as the target is not an ancestor element. 
    Closes bug #1838136.
    
    Note that an xref that is in a title and whose target is an ancestor element is still not 
    rendered in the TOC. This could be considered a bug, but on the other hand I cannot really
    see the point in having such an xref in a document.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titles.xsl

    Added a "not(ancestor::title)" test to work around "too many nested 
    apply-templates" problems when processing xrefs or links in no.anchor.mode mode.
    Hopefully, this closes bug #1811721.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titles.xsl

    Removed old template matching "link" in no.anchor.mode mode.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titles.xsl

    Process <link> in no.anchor.mode mode with the same template as <xref>. 
    Closes bug #1759205 (Empty link in no.anchor.mode mode).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titles.xsl

    In no.anchor.mode mode, do not output anchors for elements that are descendants 
    of <title>. Previously, having inline elements with @id/@xml:id in <title>s 
    resulted in anchors both in the TOC and in the main flow. Closes bug #1797492.

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Updated documentation for keep-together.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: task.xsl

    Enabled use of the keep-together PI on task elements.
  • Robert Stayton: index.xsl

    FOP1 requires fo:wrapper for inline index entries, not fo:inline.
  • Robert Stayton: index.xsl

    Fixed non-working inline.or.block template for indexterm wrappers.
    Add fop1 to list of processors using inline.or.block.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.xsl

    Fixed bug #1891965 (colsep in entytbl not working).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl

    Added support for title in revhistory. Closes bug #1842847.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Small doc cleanup (dbfo float-type).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl

    Insert commas between multiple copyright holders.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: autotoc.xsl; division.xsl

    Added modifications to support nested set elements. See bug #1853172.
  • David Cramer: glossary.xsl

    Added normalize-space to xsl:sorts to avoid missorting of glossterms due to stray leading spaces.
  • David Cramer: glossary.xsl

    Fixed bug #1854199: glossary.xsl should use the sortas attribute on glossentry
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Added a template for citebiblioid. The hyperlink target is the parent of the referenced biblioid,
    and the "hot text" is the biblioid itself enclosed in brackets.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Moved declaration of comment.block.parents entity to common/entities.ent.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: docbook.xsl

    Updated message about unmatched element.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: param.xweb

    Added link to profiling chapter of TCG.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: refentry.xsl

    Fixed typo (refsynopsysdiv -> refsynopsisdiv).
  • David Cramer: fop.xsl; fop1.xsl; ptc.xsl; xep.xsl

    Added test to check generate.index param when generating pdf bookmarks
  • Mauritz Jeanson: graphics.xsl

    Added support for MathML in imagedata.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: math.xsl

    Removed unnecessary extra test condition in test express that
    checks for passivetex.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: math.xsl

    Don't use fo:instream-foreign-object if we are processing with
    passivetex. Closes #1806899. Thanks to Justus Piater.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: component.xsl

    Added code to output a TOC for an appendix in an article when 
    generate.toc='article/appendix toc'. Closes bug #1669658.
  • Dongsheng Song: biblio-iso690.xsl

    Change encoding from "windows-1250" to "UTF-8".
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Updated documentation for dbfo_label-width.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: lists.xsl

    Added support for the dbfo_label-width PI in calloutlists.
  • Robert Stayton: biblio.xsl

    Support finding glossary database entries inside bibliodivs.
  • Robert Stayton: formal.xsl

    Complete support for <?dbfo pgwide="1"?> for informal
    elements too.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.xsl

    In the table.block template, added a check for the dbfo_keep-together PI, so that 
    a table may break (depending on the PI value) at a page break. This was needed 
    since the outer fo:block that surrounds fo:table has keep-together.within-column="always" 
    by default, which prevents the table from breaking. Closes bug #1740964 (Titled 
    table does not respect dbfo PI).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Added a few missing @role="tcg".
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Use normalize-space() in glossterm comparisons (as in html/inline.xsl).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: autoidx.xsl

    Removed the [&scope;] predicate from the target variable in the template with name="reference".
    This filter was the cause of missing index backlinks when @zone and @type were used on indexterms,
    with index.on.type=1. Closes bug #1680836.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl; xref.xsl; footnote.xsl

    Added capability in FO output for displaying URLs for all
    hyperlinks (elements marked up with xlink:href attributes) in the
    same way as URLs for ulinks are already handled (which is to say,
    either inline or as numbered footnotes).
    
    Background on this change:
    DocBook 5 allows "ubiquitous" linking, which means you can make
    any element a hyperlink just by adding an xlink:href attribute to
    it, with the value set to an external URL. That's in contrast to
    DocBook 4, which only allows you to use specific elements (e.g.,
    the link and ulink elements) to mark up hyperlinks.
    
    The existing FO stylesheets have a mechanism for handling display
    of URLs for hyperlinks that are marked up with ulink, but they did
    not handle display of URLs for elements that were marked up with
    xlink:href attributes. This change adds handling for those other
    elements, enabling the URLs they link to be displayed either
    inline or as numbered footnotes (depending on what values the user
    has the ulink.show and ulink.footnotes params set to).
    
    Note that this change only adds URL display support for elements
    that call the simple.xlink template -- which currently is most
    (but not all) inline elements.
    
    This change also moves the URL display handling out of the ulink
    template and into a new "hyperlink.url.display" named template;
    the ulink template and the simple.xlink named template now both
    call the hyperlink.url.display template.
    
    Warning: In the stylesheet code that determines what footnote
    number to assign to each footnote or external hyperlink, there is
    an XPath expression for determining whether a particular
    xlink:href instance is an external hyperlink; that expression is
    necessarily a bit complicated and further testing may reveal that
    it doesn't handle all cases as expected -- so some refinements to
    it may need to be done later.
    
    Closes #1785519. Thanks to Ken Morse for reporting and
    troubleshooting the problem.

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Keith Fahlgren: inline.xsl; synop.xsl

    Work to make HTML and XHTML targets more valid
  • Keith Fahlgren: table.xsl

    Add better handling for tables that have footnotes in the titles
  • Keith Fahlgren: biblio.xsl

    Add anchors to bibliodivs
  • Keith Fahlgren: formal.xsl; Makefile; htmltbl.xsl

    Initial checkin/merge of epub target from work provided by Paul Norton of Adobe
    and Keith Fahlgren of O'Reilly.

    This change includes new code for generating the XHTML 1.1 target sanely.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: biblio.xsl

    Added code for creating URLs from biblioids with @class="doi" (representing Digital 
    Object Identifiers). See FR #1934434 and http://doi.org.
    
    To do: 1) Add support for FO output. 2) Figure out how @class="doi" should be handled 
    for bibliorelation, bibliosource and citebiblioid.
  • Norman Walsh: formal.xsl

    Don't use xsl:copy because it forces the resulting element to be in the same namespace as the source element; in the XHTML stylesheets, that's wrong. But the HTML-to-XHTML converter does the right thing with literal result elements, so use one of them.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile

    Added checks and hacks to various makefiles to enable building
    under Cygwin. This stuff is ugly and maybe not worth the mess and
    trouble, but does seem to work as expected and not break anything
    else.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: docbook.xsl

    added "exslt" namespace binding to html/docbook.xsl file (in
    addition to existing "exsl" binding. reason is because lack of it
    seems to cause processing problems when using the profiled
    version of the stylsheet
  • Norman Walsh: chunk-common.xsl

    Rename link
  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.xsl

    Added a fix to make rowsep apply to the last row of thead in entrytbl.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl

    Simplified and streamlined handling of output for ANSI-style
    funcprototype output, to correct a problem that was causing type
    data to be lost in the output parameter definitions. For example,
    for an instance like this:
      <paramdef>void *<parameter>dataptr</parameter>[]</paramdef>
    ... the brackets (indicating an array type) were being dropped.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl

    Changed HTML handling of K&R-style paramdef output. The parameter
    definitions are no longer output in a table (though the prototype
    still is). The reason for the change is that the
    kr-tabular-funcsynopsis-mode template was causing type data to be
    lost in the output parameter definitions. For example, for an
    instance like this:
      <paramdef>void *<parameter>dataptr</parameter>[]</paramdef>
    ... the brackets (indicating an array type) were being dropped.
    The easiest way to deal with the problem is to not try to chop up
    the parameter definitions and display them in table format, but to
    instead just output them as-is. May not look quite as pretty, but
    at least we can be sure no information is being lost...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: pi.xsl

    updated wording of doc for funcsynopsis-style PI
  • Michael(tm) Smith: param.xweb; param.ent; synop.xsl

    Removed the funcsynopsis.tabular.threshold param. It's no longer
    being used in the code and hasn't been since mid 2006.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: graphics.xsl

    Added support for the img.src.path parameter for SVG graphics. Closes bug #1888169.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: chunk-common.xsl

    Added missing space.
  • Norman Walsh: component.xsl

    Fix bug where component titles inside info elements were not handled properly
  • Michael(tm) Smith: pi.xsl

    Moved dbhtml_stop-chunking embedded doc into alphabetical order,
    fixed text of TCG section it see-also'ed.
  • David Cramer: pi.xsl

    Added support for <?dbhtml stop-chunking?> processing instruction
  • David Cramer: chunk-common.xsl; pi.xsl

    Added support for <?dbhtml stop-chunking?> processing instruction
  • David Cramer: glossary.xsl

    Fixed bug #1854199: glossary.xsl should use the sortas attribute on glossentry. Also added normalize-space to avoid missorting due to stray leading spaces.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Added a template for citebiblioid. The hyperlink target is the parent of the referenced biblioid,
    and the "hot text" is the biblioid itself enclosed in brackets.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Added support for @xlink:show in the simple.xlink template. The "new" and "replace" 
    values are supported (corresponding to values of "_blank" and "_top" for the 
    ulink.target parameter). I have assumed that @xlink:show should override ulink.target
    for external URI links. This closes bugs #1762023 and #1727498.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Moved declaration of comment.block.parents entity to common/entities.ent.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: param.xweb

    Added link to profiling chapter of TCG.
  • Dongsheng Song: biblio-iso690.xsl

    Change encoding from "windows-1250" to "UTF-8".
  • Robert Stayton: biblio.xsl

    Add support in biblio collection to entries in bibliodivs.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Added missing @role="tcg".
  • Mauritz Jeanson: chunk-common.xsl; titlepage.xsl

    Refactored legalnotice/revhistory chunking, so that the use.id.as.filename 
    parameter as well as the dbhtml_filename PI are taken into account. A new named
    template in titlepage.xsl is used to compute the filename.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: chunk-common.xsl; titlepage.xsl

    An update to the fix for bug #1790495 (r7433):
    The "ln-" prefix is output only when the legalnotice doesn't have an
    @id/@xml:id, in which case the stylesheets generate an ID value, 
    resulting in a filename like "ln-7e0fwgj.html". This is useful because 
    without the prefix, you wouldn't know that the file contained a legalnotice. 
    The same logic is also applied to revhistory, using an "rh-" prefix.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: autoidx.xsl

    Removed the [&scope;] predicate from the target variable in the template with name="reference".
    This filter was the cause of missing index backlinks when @zone and @type were used on indexterms,
    with index.on.type=1. Closes bug #1680836.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl

    Added 'ln-' prefix to the name of the legalnotice chunk, in order to match the 
    <link href"..."> that is output by make.legalnotice.head.links (chunk-common.xsl).
    Modified the href attribute on the legalnotice link.
    Closes bug #1790495.

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    slightly adjusted spacing around admonition markers
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl; utility.xsl

    make sure refsect3 titles are preceded by a line of space, and
    make the indenting of their child content less severe
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    only indent verbatim environments in TTY output, not in non-TTY/PS
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    made another adjustment to correct vertical alignment of admonition marker
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl; other.xsl

    Adjusted/corrected alignment of adominition marker in PS/non-TTY output.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl

    For PS/non-TTY output, display footnote/endnote numbers in
    superscript.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: table.xsl; synop.xsl; utility.xsl

    Changed handling of hanging indents for cmdsynopsis, funcsynopsis,
    and synopfragment such that they now look correct in non-TTY/PS
    output. We now use the groff \w escape to hang by the actual width
    -- in the current font -- of the command, funcdef, or
    synopfragment references number (as opposed to hanging by the
    number of characters). This rendering in TTY output remains the
    same, since the width in monospaced TTY output is the same as the
    number of characters.
    
    Also, created new synopsis-block-start and synopsis-block-end
    templates to use for cmdsynopsis and funcsynopsis instead of the
    corresponding verbatim-* templates.
    
    Along with those changes, also corrected a problem that caused the
    content of synopfragment to be dropped, and made a
    vertical-spacing change to adjust spacing around table titles and
    among sibling synopfragment instances.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    use common l10.language.name template to retrieve English-language name
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl; inline.xsl

    added comment in code explaining why we don't put filename output
    in italic (despite the fact that man guidelines say we should)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl

    put filename output in monospace instead of italic
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl

    put cmdsynopsis in monospace
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl

    removed template match for literal. template matches for monospace
    inlines are all imported from the HTML stylesheet
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    don't indent verbatim environments that are descendants of
    refsynopsisdiv, not put backgrounds behind them
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl

    set output of the literal element in monospace. this causes all
    inline monospace instances in the git man pages to be set in
    monospace (since DocBook XML source for git docs is generated with
    asciidoc and asciidoc consistently outputs only <literal> for
    inline monospace (not <command> or <code> or anything else).
    Of course this only affects non-TTY output...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    Added inline.monoseq named template.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    don't bother using a custom register to store the previous
    font-family value when setting blocks of text in code font; just
    use \F[] .fam with no arg to switch back
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl

    put links in blue in PS output (note that this matches how groff
    renders content marked up with the .URL macro)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl; param.xweb; param.ent

    removed man.links.are.underlined and added man.font.links. Also,
    changed the default font formatting for links to bold.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl; param.xweb; param.ent

    Added new param man.base.url.for.relative.links .. specifies a
    base URL for relative links (for ulink, @xlink:href, imagedata,
    audiodata, videodata) shown in the generated NOTES section of
    man-page output. The value of man.base.url.for.relative.links is
    prepended to any relative URI that is a value of ulink url,
    xlink:href, or fileref attribute.
    
    If you use relative URIs in link sources in your DocBook refentry
    source, and you leave man.base.url.for.relative.links unset, the
    relative links will appear "as is" in the NOTES section of any
    man-page output generated from your source. That's probably not
    what you want, because such relative links are only usable in the
    context of HTML output. So, to make the links meaningful and
    usable in the context of man-page output, set a value for
    man.base.url.for.relative.links that points
    to the online version of HTML output generated from your DocBook
    refentry source. For example:
    
      <xsl:param name="man.base.url.for.relative.links"
      >http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/</xsl:param>
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    If a source refentry contains a Documentation or DOCUMENTATION
    section, don't report it as having missing AUTHOR information.
    Also, if missing a contrib/personblurb for a person or org, report
    pointers to http://docbook.sf.net/el/personblurb and to
    http://docbook.sf.net/el/contrib
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    If we encounter an author|editor|othercredit instance that lacks a
    personblurb or contrib, report it to the user (because that means
    we have no information about that author|editor|othercredit to
    display in the generated AUTHOR|AUTHORS section...)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl; docbook.xsl; other.xsl

    if we can't find any usable author data, emit a warning and insert
    a fixme in the output
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    fixed bug in indenting of output for contrib instances in AUTHORS
    section. Thanks to Daniel Leidert and the fglrx docs for exposing
    the bug.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    for a para or simpara that is the first child of a callout,
    suppress the .sp or .PP that would normally be output (because in
    those cases, the output goes into a table cell, and the .sp or .PP
    markup causes a spurious linebreak before it when displayed
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Added support for rendering co callouts and calloutlist instances.
    So you can now use simple callouts -- marking up programlisting
    and such with co instances -- and have the callouts displayed in
    man-page output. ("simple callouts" means using co@id and
    callout@arearefs pointing to co@id instances; in man/roff output,
    we can't/don't support markup that uses areaset and area)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    only put a line of space after a verbatim if it's followed by a
    text node or a paragraph
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    put verbatim environments in slightly smaller font in non-TTY
    output
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    minor whitespace-only reformatting of lists.xsl source
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Made refinements/fixes to output of orderedlist and itemizedlist
    -- in part, to get mysql man pages to display correctly. This
    change causes a "\c" continuation marker to be added between
    listitem markers and contents (to ensure that the content remains
    on the same line as the marker when displayed)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    put a line of vertical space after all verbatim output that has
    sibling content following it (not just if that sibling content is
    a text node)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    refined spacing around titles for admonitions
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl; other.xsl

    Deal with case of verbatim environments that have a linebreak
    after the opening tag. Assumption is that users generally don't
    want that linebreak to appear in output, so we do some groff
    hackery to mess with vertical spacing and close the space.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl

    indexterm instances now produce groff comments like this:
    
      .\" primary: secondary: tertiary
    
    remark instances, if non-empty, now produce groff comments
  • Michael(tm) Smith: charmap.groff.xsl; other.xsl

    convert no-break space character to groff "\ \&" (instead of just
    "\ "). the reason is that if a space occurs at the end of a line,
    our processing causes it to be eaten. a real-world case of this is
    the mysql(1) man page. appending the "\&" prevents that
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    output "sp" before simpara output, not after it (outputting it
    after results in undesirable whitespace in particular cases; for
    example, in the hg/mercurial docs
  • Michael(tm) Smith: table.xsl; synop.xsl; utility.xsl

    renamed from title-preamble to pinch.together and replaced "sp -1"
    between synopsis fragments with call to pinch.together instead
  • Michael(tm) Smith: table.xsl

    use title-preamble template for table titles (instead of "sp -1"
    hack), and "sp 1" after all tables (instead of just "sp"
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    created title-preamble template for suppressing line spacing after
    headings
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    further refinement of indenting in AUTHORS section
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl; other.xsl

    refined handling of admonitions
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Use RS/RE in another place where we had IP ""
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    Replace (ab)use of IP with "sp -1" in AUTHORS section with RS/RE
    instead.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: table.xsl; synop.xsl; info.xsl

    changed all instances of ".sp -1n" to ".sp -1"
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    add extra line before SH heads only in non-TTY output
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    Reworked output for admonitions (caution, important, note, tip,
    warning). In TTY output, admonitions now get indented. In non-TTY
    output, a colored marker (yellow) is displayed next to them.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    Added BM/EM macros for putting a colored marker in margin next to
    a block of text.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    created make.bold.title template by moving title-bolding part out
    from nested-section-title template. This allows the bolding to
    also be used by the template for formatting admonitions
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    put .br before copyright contents to prevent them from getting run in
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl; other.xsl; utility.xsl

    made point size of output for Refsect2 and Refsect3 heads bigger
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    put slightly more space between SH head and underline in non-TTY
    output
  • Michael(tm) Smith: param.xweb; param.ent; other.xsl

    Added the man.charmap.subset.profile.english parameter and refined
    the handling of charmap subsets to differentiate between English
    and non-English source.
    
    This way charmap subsets are now handled is this:
    
    If the value of the man.charmap.use.subset parameter is non-zero,
    and your DocBook source is not written in English (that is, if its
    lang or xml:lang attribute has a value other than en), then the
    character-map subset specified by the man.charmap.subset.profile
    parameter is used instead of the full roff character map.
    
    Otherwise, if the lang or xml:lang attribute on the root element
    in your DocBook source or on the first refentry element in your
    source has the value en or if it has no lang or xml:lang
    attribute, then the character-map subset specified by the
    man.charmap.subset.profile.english parameter is used instead of
    man.charmap.subset.profile.
    
    The difference between the two subsets is that
    man.charmap.subset.profile provides mappings for characters in
    Western European languages that are not part of the Roman
    (English) alphabet (ASCII character set).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    Various updates, mainly related to uppercasing SH titles:
    
      - added a "Language: " metadata line to the top comment area of
        output man pages, to indicate the language the page is in
    
      - added a "toupper" macro of doing locale-aware uppercasing of
        SH titles and cross-references to SH titles; the mechanism
        relies on the uppercase.alpha and lowercase.alpha DocBook
        gentext keys to do locale-aware uppercasing based on the
        language the page is written in
    
      - added a "string.shuffle" template, which provides a library
        function for "shuffling" two strings together into a single
        string; it takes the first character for the first string, the
        first character from second string, etc. The only current use
        for it is to generate the argument for the groff tr request
        that does string uppercasing.
    
      - added make.tr.uppercase.arg and make.tr.normalcase.arg named
        templates for use in generating groff code for uppercasing and
        "normal"-casing SH titles
    
      - made the BB/BE "background drawing" macros have effect only in
        non-TTY output
    
      - output a few comments in the top part of source
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    removed some leftover kruft
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    To create the name(s) for each man page, we now replace any spaces
    in the refname(s) with underscores. This ensures that tools like
    lexgrog(1) will be able to parse the name (lexgrog won't parse
    names that contain spaces).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: docbook.xsl

    Put a comment into source of man page to indicate where the main
    content starts. (We now have a few of macro definitions at the
    start of the source, so putting this comment in helps those that
    might be viewing the source.)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    refined mechanism for generating SH titles
  • Michael(tm) Smith: charmap.groff.xsl

    Added zcaron, Zcaron, scaron, and Scaron to the groff character map.
    This means that generated Finnish man pages will no longer contain
    any raw accented characters -- they'll instead by marked up with
    groff escapes.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl; utility.xsl

    corrected a regression I introduced about a year ago that caused
    dots to be output just as "\." -- instead needs to be "\&." (which
    is what it will be now, after this change)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    Changed backend handling for generating titles for SH sections and
    for cross-references to those sections. This should have no effect
    on TTY output (behavior should remain the same hopefully) but
    results in titles in normal case (instead of uppercase) in PS
    output.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    use make.subheading template to make subheadings for AUTHORS and
    COPYRIGHT sections (instead of harcoding roff markup)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    put code font around programlisting etc.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl; docbook.xsl

    embed custom macro definitions in man pages, plus wrap synopsis in
    code font
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl

    use the make.subheading template to generated SH subheading for
    endnotes section.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Added some templates for generating if-then-else conditional
    markup in groff, so let's use those instead of hard-coding it in
    multiple places...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl; utility.xsl

    Initial checkin of some changes related to making PS/PDF output
    from "man -l -Tps" look better. The current changes:
    
      - render synopsis and verbatim sections in a monospace/code font
    
      - put a light-grey background behind all programlisting, screen,
        and literallayout instances
    
      - prevent SH heads in PS output from being rendered in uppercase
        (as they are in console output)
    
      - also display xrefs to SH heads in PS output in normal case
        (instead of uppercase)
    
      - draw a line under SH heads in PS output
    
    The changes made to the code to support the above features were:
    
      - added some embedded/custom macros: one for conditionally
        upper-casing SH x-refs, one for redefining the SH macro
        itself, with some conditional handling for PS output, and
        finally a macro for putting a background/screen (filled box)
        around a block of text (e.g., a program listing) in PS output
    
      - added utility templates for wrapping blocks of text in code
        font; also templates for inline code font
  • Robert Stayton: refentry.xsl

    refpurpose nodes now get apply-templates instead of just normalize-space().
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Fixed alignment of first lined of text for each listitem in
    orderedlist output for TTY. Existing code seemed to have been
    causing an extra undesirable space to appear.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Wrapped some roff conditionals around roff markup for orderedlist
    and itemizedlist output, so that the lists look acceptable in PS
    output as well as TTY.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: pi.xsl; synop.xsl; param.xweb; param.ent

    Added the man.funcsynopsis.style parameter. Has the same effect in
    manpages output as the funcsynopsis.style parameter has in HTML
    output -- except that its default value is 'ansi' instead of 'kr'.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl

    Reworked handling of K&R funcprototype output. It no longer relies
    on the HTML kr-tabular templates, but instead just does direct
    transformation to roff. For K&R output, it displays the paramdef
    output in an indented list following the prototype.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl

    Properly integrated handling for K&R output into manpages
    stylesheet. The choice between K&R output and ANSI output is
    currently controlled through use of the (HTML) funcsynopsis.style
    parameter. Note that because the mechanism does currently rely on
    funcsynopsis.style, the default in manpages output is now K&R
    (because that's the default of that param). But I suppose I ought
    to create a man.funcsynopsis.style and make the default for that
    ANSI (to preserve the existing default behavior).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: docbook.xsl

    added manpages/pi.xsl file
  • Michael(tm) Smith: .cvsignore; pi.xsl

    Added "dbman funcsynopsis-style" PI and incorporated it into the
    doc build.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    Fixed regression that caused an unescaped dash to be output
    between refname and refpurpose content. Closes bug #1894244.
    Thanks to Daniel Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: other.xsl

    Fixed problem with dots being escaped in filenames of generated
    man files. Closes #1827195. Thanks to Daniel Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: inline.xsl

    Added support for processing structfield (was appearing in roff
    output surrounded by HTML <em> tags; fixed so that it gets roff
    ital markup). Closes bug #1858329.  Thanks to Sam Varshavchik.

Epub

The following changes have been made to the epub code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/spec/README; bin/spec/epub_realbook_spec.rb

    'Realbook' spec now passes
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/dbtoepub; README; bin/spec/README; bin/lib/docbook.rb; bin/spec/epub_r⋯

    Very primitive Windows support for dbtoepub reference implementation; README for running tests and for the .epub target in general; shorter realbook test document (still fails for now)
  • Keith Fahlgren: bin/dbtoepub; bin/spec/epub_regressions_spec.rb; bin/lib/docbook.rb; bin/s⋯

    Changes to OPF spine to not duplicate idrefs for documents with parts not at the root; regression specs for same
  • Keith Fahlgren: docbook.xsl

    Fixing linking to cover @id, distinct from other needs of cover-image-id (again, thanks to Martin Goerner)
  • Keith Fahlgren: docbook.xsl

HTMLHelp

The following changes have been made to the htmlhelp code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: htmlhelp-common.xsl

    Added <xsl:with-param name="quiet" select="$chunk.quietly"/> to calls to
    the write.chunk, write.chunk.with.doctype, and write.text.chunk templates.
    This makes chunk.quietly=1 suppress chunk filename messages also for help 
    support files (which seems to be what one would expect). See bug #1648360.

    Added <xsl:with-param name="quiet" select="$chunk.quietly"/>
    to helpidx template.
  • David Cramer: eclipse.xsl

Slides

The following changes have been made to the slides code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: fo/Makefile; html/Makefile

    Added checks and hacks to various makefiles to enable building
    under Cygwin. This stuff is ugly and maybe not worth the mess and
    trouble, but does seem to work as expected and not break anything
    else.
  • Jirka Kosek: html/plain.xsl

    Added support for showing foil number

Website

The following changes have been made to the website code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: extensions/saxon64/.classes/.gitignore; extensions/xalan2/.classes/com/⋯

    renamed a bunch more .cvsignore files to .gitignore (to facilitate use of git-svn)

Params

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Keith Fahlgren: epub.autolabel.xml

    New parameter for epub, epub.autolabel
  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.frame.border.color.xml; table.cell.padding.xml; table.cell.border.t⋯

    Added missing refpurposes and descriptions.
  • Keith Fahlgren: ade.extensions.xml

    Extensions to support Adobe Digital Editions extensions in .epub output.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: fop.extensions.xml; fop1.extensions.xml

    Clarified that fop1.extensions is for FOP 0.90 and later. Version 1 is not here yet...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.links.are.underlined.xml; man.endnotes.list.enabled.xml; man.font.l⋯

    removed man.links.are.underlined and added man.font.links. Also,
    changed the default font formatting for links to bold.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.base.url.for.relative.links.xml

    Added new param man.base.url.for.relative.links .. specifies a
    base URL for relative links (for ulink, @xlink:href, imagedata,
    audiodata, videodata) shown in the generated NOTES section of
    man-page output. The value of man.base.url.for.relative.links is
    prepended to any relative URI that is a value of ulink url,
    xlink:href, or fileref attribute.
    
    If you use relative URIs in link sources in your DocBook refentry
    source, and you leave man.base.url.for.relative.links unset, the
    relative links will appear "as is" in the NOTES section of any
    man-page output generated from your source. That's probably not
    what you want, because such relative links are only usable in the
    context of HTML output. So, to make the links meaningful and
    usable in the context of man-page output, set a value for
    man.base.url.for.relative.links that points
    to the online version of HTML output generated from your DocBook
    refentry source. For example:
    
      <xsl:param name="man.base.url.for.relative.links"
      >http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/</xsl:param>
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.string.subst.map.xml

    squeeze .sp\n.sp into a single .sp (to prevent a extra, spurious
    line of whitespace from being inserted after programlisting etc.
    in certain cases)
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.manual.fallback.profile.xml; refentry.source.fallback.profile.⋯

    don't use refmiscinfo@class=date value as fallback for refentry
    "source" or "manual" metadata fields
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.charmap.subset.profile.xml; man.charmap.enabled.xml; man.charmap.su⋯

    made some further doc tweaks related to the
    man.charmap.subset.profile.english param
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.charmap.subset.profile.xml; man.charmap.enabled.xml; man.charmap.su⋯

    Added the man.charmap.subset.profile.english parameter and refined
    the handling of charmap subsets to differentiate between English
    and non-English source.
    
    This way charmap subsets are now handled is this:
    
    If the value of the man.charmap.use.subset parameter is non-zero,
    and your DocBook source is not written in English (that is, if its
    lang or xml:lang attribute has a value other than en), then the
    character-map subset specified by the man.charmap.subset.profile
    parameter is used instead of the full roff character map.
    
    Otherwise, if the lang or xml:lang attribute on the root element
    in your DocBook source or on the first refentry element in your
    source has the value en or if it has no lang or xml:lang
    attribute, then the character-map subset specified by the
    man.charmap.subset.profile.english parameter is used instead of
    man.charmap.subset.profile.
    
    The difference between the two subsets is that
    man.charmap.subset.profile provides mappings for characters in
    Western European languages that are not part of the Roman
    (English) alphabet (ASCII character set).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.charmap.subset.profile.xml

    Added to default charmap used by manpages:
    
      - the "letters" part of the 'C1 Controls And Latin-1 Supplement
        (Latin-1 Supplement)' Unicode block
      - Latin Extended-A block (but not all of the characters from
        that block have mappings in groff, so some of them are still
        passed through as-is)
    
    The effects of this change are that in man pages generated for
    most Western European languages and for Finnish, all characters
    not part of the Roman alphabet are (e.g., "accented" characters)
    are converted to groff escapes.
    
    Previously, by default we passed through those characters as is
    (and users needed to use the full charmap if they wanted to have
    those characters converted).
    
    As a result of this change, man pages generated for Western
    European languages will be viewable in some environments in which
    they are not viewable if the "raw" non-Roman characters are in them.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: generate.legalnotice.link.xml; generate.revhistory.link.xml

    Added information on how the filename is computed.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: default.table.width.xml

    Clarified PI usage.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.funcsynopsis.style.xml

    Added the man.funcsynopsis.style parameter. Has the same effect in
    manpages output as the funcsynopsis.style parameter has in HTML
    output -- except that its default value is 'ansi' instead of 'kr'.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: funcsynopsis.tabular.threshold.xml

    Removed the funcsynopsis.tabular.threshold param. It's no longer
    being used in the code and hasn't been since mid 2006.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.properties.xml

    Set keep-together.within-column to "auto". This seems to be the most sensible
    default value for tables.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: informal.object.properties.xml; admon.graphics.extension.xml; informalequ⋯

    Several small documentation fixes.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: manifest.in.base.dir.xml

    Wording fixes.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: header.content.properties.xml; footer.content.properties.xml

    Added refpurpose.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: ulink.footnotes.xml; ulink.show.xml

    Updated for DocBook 5.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: index.method.xml; glossterm.auto.link.xml

    Spelling and wording fixes.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: callout.graphics.extension.xml

    Clarifed available graphics formats and extensions.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: footnote.sep.leader.properties.xml

    Corrected refpurpose.
  • Jirka Kosek: footnote.properties.xml

    Added more properties which make it possible to render correctly footnotes placed inside verbatim elements.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: img.src.path.xml

    img.src.path works with inlinegraphic too.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: saxon.character.representation.xml

    Added TCG link.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: img.src.path.xml

    Updated description of img.src.path. Bug #1785224 revealed that 
    there was a risk of misunderstanding how it works.

Profiling

The following changes have been made to the profiling code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Jirka Kosek: xsl2profile.xsl

    Added new rules to profile all content generated by HTML Help (including alias files)
  • Robert Stayton: profile-mode.xsl

    use mode="profile" instead of xsl:copy-of for attributes so
    they can be more easily customized.

Tools

The following changes have been made to the tools code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: make/Makefile.DocBook

    various changes and additions to support making with asciidoc as
    an input format
  • Michael(tm) Smith: make/Makefile.DocBook

    make dblatex the default PDF maker for the example makefile
  • Michael(tm) Smith: xsl/build/html2roff.xsl

    Reworked handling of K&R funcprototype output. It no longer relies
    on the HTML kr-tabular templates, but instead just does direct
    transformation to roff. For K&R output, it displays the paramdef
    output in an indented list following the prototype.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: xsl/build/make-xsl-params.xsl

    Made attribute-sets members of the param list. This enables links to attribute-sets in the
    reference documentation.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: xsl/build/html2roff.xsl

    use .BI handling in K&R funsynopsis output for manpages, just as
    we do already of ANSI output
  • Michael(tm) Smith: xsl/build/html2roff.xsl

    Implemented initial support for handling tabular K&R output of
    funcprototype in manpages output. Accomplished by adding more
    templates to the intermediate HTML-to-roff stylesheet that the
    build uses to create the manpages/html-synop.xsl stylesheet.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: xsl/build/doc-link-docbook.xsl

    Made the xsl/tools/xsl/build/doc-link-docbook.xsl stylesheet
    import profile-docbook.xsl, so that we can do profiling of release
    notes. Corrected some problems in the target for the release-notes
    HTML build.

Extensions

The following changes have been made to the extensions code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Keith Fahlgren: Makefile

    Use DOCBOOK_SVN variable everywhere, please; build with PDF_MAKER
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile

    moved extensions build targets from master xsl/Makefile to
    xsl/extensions/Makefile
  • Michael(tm) Smith: .cvsignore

    re-adding empty extensions subdir

The following changes have been made to the xsl-saxon code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: VERSION

    bring xsl2, xsl-saxon, and xsl-xalan VERSION files up-to-date with
    recent change to snapshot build infrastructure
  • Michael(tm) Smith: nbproject/build-impl.xml; nbproject/project.properties

    Changed hard-coded file references in "clean" target to variable
    references. Closes #1792043. Thanks to Daniel Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: VERSION; Makefile

    Did post-release wrap-up of xsl-saxon and xsl-xalan dirs
  • Michael(tm) Smith: nbproject/build-impl.xml; VERSION; Makefile; test

    More tweaks to get release-ready

XSL-Xalan

The following changes have been made to the xsl-xalan code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: VERSION

    bring xsl2, xsl-saxon, and xsl-xalan VERSION files up-to-date with
    recent change to snapshot build infrastructure
  • Michael(tm) Smith: nbproject/build-impl.xml

    Changed hard-coded file references in "clean" target to variable
    references. Closes #1792043. Thanks to Daniel Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile; VERSION

    Did post-release wrap-up of xsl-saxon and xsl-xalan dirs
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile; nbproject/build-impl.xml; VERSION

    More tweaks to get release-ready

XSL-libxslt

The following changes have been made to the xsl-libxslt code since the 1.73.2 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: python/xslt.py

    Print the result to stdout if no outfile has been given.
    Some unnecessary semicolons removed.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: python/xslt.py

    Added a function that quotes parameter values (to ensure that they are interpreted as strings).
    Replaced deprecated functions from the string module with string methods.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: python/README; python/README.LIBXSLT

    renamed xsl-libxslt/python/README to xsl-libxslt/python/README.LIBXSLT
  • Mauritz Jeanson: python/README

    Tweaked the text a little.

Release Notes: 1.73.2

This is solely a minor bug-fix update to the 1.73.1 release. It fixes a packaging error in the 1.73.1 package, as well as a bug in footnote handling in FO output.

Release: 1.73.1

This is mostly a bug-fix update to the 1.73.0 release.

Gentext

The following changes have been made to the gentext code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: locale/de.xml

    Applied patch #1766009.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/lv.xml

    Added localization for ProductionSet.

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: table.xsl

    Modified the tgroup template so that, for tables with multiple tgroups, 
    a width attribute is output on all corresponding fo:tables. Previously, 
    there was a test prohibiting this (and a comment saying that outputting more
    than one width attribute will cause an error). But this seems to be no longer 
    relevant; it is not a problem with FOP 0.93 or XEP 4.10. Closes bug #1760559.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: graphics.xsl

    Replaced useless <a> elements with warning messages (textinsert extension).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: admon.xsl

    Enabled generation of ids (on fo:wrapper) for indexterms in admonition titles, so that page
    references in the index can be created. Closes bug #1775086.

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl

    Added <xsl:call-template name="process.footnotes"/> to abstract template
    so that footnotes in info/abstract are processed. Closes bug #1760907.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: pi.xsl; synop.xsl

    Changed handling of HTML output for the cmdsynopsis and
    funcsynopsis elements, such that a@id instances are generated for
    them if they are descendants of any element containing a dbcmdlist
    or dbfunclist PI. Also, update the embedded reference docs for the
    dbcmdlist and dbfunclist PIs to make it clear that they can be
    used within any element for which cmdsynopsis or funcsynopsis are
    valid children.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: formal.xsl

    Reverted the part of revision 6952 that caused a@id anchors to be
    generated for output of informal objects. Thanks to Sam Steingold
    for reporting.
  • Robert Stayton: glossary.xsl

    Account for a glossary with no glossdiv or glossentry children.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl

    Modified legalnotice template so that the base.name parameter is calculated 
    in the same way as for revhistory chunks. Using <xsl:apply-templates 
    mode="chunk-filename" select="."/> did not work for single-page output since
    the template with that mode is in chunk-code.xsl.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: graphics.xsl

    Updated support for SVG (must be a child of imagedata in DB 5).
    Added support for MathML in imagedata.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Added documentation for the dbhh PI (used for context-sensitive HTML Help).
    (The two templates matching 'dbhh' are still in htmlhelp-common.xsl).

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl

    In manpages output, generate warnings about notesources with

The following changes have been made to the htmlhelp code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: htmlhelp-common.xsl

    Added single-pass namespace-stripping support to the htmlhelp,
    eclipse, and javahelp stylesheets.

The following changes have been made to the eclipse code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: eclipse.xsl

    Added single-pass namespace-stripping support to the htmlhelp,
    eclipse, and javahelp stylesheets.

  • Steve Ball: blocks2dbk.xsl; blocks2dbk.dtd; pages2normalise.xsl

    Modularised blocks2dbk to allow customisation,
    Added support for tables to pages2normalise

Params

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.73.0 release.

  • Robert Stayton: procedure.properties.xml

    procedure was inheriting keep-together from formal.object.properties, but
    a procedure does not need to be kept together by default.
  • Dave Pawson: title.font.family.xml; component.label.includes.part.label.xml; table.frame.b⋯

    Regular formatting re-org.

Release: 1.73.0

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).

Gentext

The following changes have been made to the gentext code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/lv.xml; Makefile

    Added Latvian localization file, from Girts Ziemelis.
  • Dongsheng Song: locale/zh_cn.xml

    Brought up to date with en.xml in terms of items. A few strings marked for translation.

  • Jirka Kosek: locale/en.xml; locale/cs.xml

    Rules for normalizing glossary entries before they are sorted can be now different for each language.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: locale/sr_Latn.xml; locale/sr.xml

    Committed changes from Miloš Komarčević to Serbian files.
  • Robert Stayton: locale/ja.xml

    Fix chapter in context xref-number-and-title
  • Robert Stayton: locale/it.xml

    Improved version from contributor.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: locale/uk.xml

    Applied patch 1592083.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: labels.xsl

    Changed handling of reference auto-labeling such that reference
    (when it appears at the component level) is now affected by the
    label.from.part param, just as preface, chapter, and appendix.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: common.xsl

    Added support to the HTML stylesheets for proper processing of
    orgname as a child of author.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: refentry.xsl

    Refined logging output of refentry metadata-gathering template;

    the log messages now include URL to corresponding page in the
    Definitive Guide (TDG).
  • Robert Stayton: titles.xsl

    Add refsection/info/title support.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: titles.xsl

    Added support for correct handling of xref to elements that
    contain info/title descendants but no title children.
    
    This should be further refined so that it handles any *info
    elements. And there are probably some other places where similar
    handling for *info/title should be added.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: pi.xsl

    Modified <xsl:when> in datetime.format template to work
    around Xalan bug.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: param.xweb; param.ent

    Moved declaration and documentation of javahelp.encoding from javahelp.xsl to the
    regular "parameter machinery".
  • Michael(tm) Smith: admon.xsl

    Changed handling of titles for note, warning, caution, important,
    tip admonitions: We now output and HTML h3 head only if
    admon.textlabel is non-zero or if the admonition actually contains
    a title; otherwise, we don't output an h3 head at all.
    (Previously, we were outputting an empty h3 if the admon.textlabel
    was zero and if the admonition had no title.)
  • Mauritz Jeanson: xref.xsl

    Added template for xref to area/areaset.
    Part of fix for bug #1675513 (xref to area broken).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: titlepage.xsl; component.xsl; division.xsl; sections.xsl

    Added fixes to avoid duplicate ids when generate.id.attributes = 1.
    This (hopefully) closes bug #1671052.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: formal.xsl; pi.xsl

    Made the dbfunclist PI work as intended. Also added doc for
    dbfunclist and dbcmdlist PIs.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: pi.xsl; synop.xsl

    Made the dbcmdlist work the way it appears to have been intended
    to work. Restored dbhtml-dir template back to pi.xsl.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: titlepage.xsl; param.xweb; param.ent

    Added new param abstract.notitle.enabled.
    If non-zero, in output of the abstract element on titlepages,
    display of the abstract title is suppressed.
    Because sometimes you really don't want or need that title
    there...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: chunk-code.xsl; graphics.xsl

    When we are chunking long descriptions for mediaobject instances
    into separate HTML output files, and use.id.as.filename is
    non-zero, if a mediaobject has an ID, use that ID as the basename
    for the long-description file (otherwise, we generate an ID for it
    and use that ID as the basename for the file).
    The parallels the recent change made to cause IDs for legalnotice
    instances to be used as basenames for legalnotice chunks.
    Also, made some minor refinements to the recent changes for
    legalnotice chunk handling.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: titlepage.xsl

    Added support to the HTML stylesheets for proper processing of
    orgname as a child of author.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: chunk-code.xsl

    When $generate.legalnotice.link is non-zero and
    $use.id.as.filename is also non-zero, if a legalnotice has an ID,
    then instead of assigning the "ln-<generatedID>" basename to the
    output file for that legalnotice, just use its real ID as the
    basename for the file -- as we do when chunking other elements
    that have IDs.
  • David Cramer: xref.xsl

    Handle alt text on xrefs to steps when the step doesn't have a title.
  • David Cramer: lists.xsl

    Added <p> element around term in variablelist when formatted as table to avoid misalignment of term and listitem in xhtml (non-quirks mode) output
  • David Cramer: qandaset.xsl

    Added <p> element around question and answer labels to avoid misalignment of label and listitem in xhtml (non-quirks mode) output
  • David Cramer: lists.xsl

    Added <p> element around callouts to avoid misalignment of callout and listitem in xhtml (non-quirks mode) output
  • Mauritz Jeanson: inline.xsl

    Make citations numbered if bibliography.numbered != 0.
  • Robert Stayton: param.xweb; param.ent

    Add support for new profiling attributes audience and wordsize.
  • Robert Stayton: inline.xsl; xref.xsl

    Add support for xlink olinks.
  • Jirka Kosek: glossary.xsl

    Rules for normalizing glossary entries before they are sorted can be now different for each language.
  • Robert Stayton: chunk-common.xsl; chunk-code.xsl; manifest.xsl; chunk.xsl

    Refactored the chunking modules to move all named templates to
    chunk-common.xsl and all match templates to chunk-code.xsl, in
    order to enable better chunk customization.
    See the comments in chunk.xsl for more details.
  • Robert Stayton: lists.xsl

    Add anchor for xml:id for listitem in varlistentry.
  • Robert Stayton: refentry.xsl

    Add support for info/title in refsections for db5.
  • Jirka Kosek: param.xweb; biblio.xsl; docbook.xsl; param.ent; biblio-iso690.xsl

    Added support for formatting biblioentries according to ISO690 citation style.
    New bibliography style can be turned on by setting parameter bibliography.style to "iso690"
    The code was provided by Jana Dvorakova
  • Robert Stayton: inline.xsl; xref.xsl

    Add call to class.attribute to <a> output elements so they can
    have a class value too.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: glossary.xsl

    Fixed bug #1644881:
    * Added curly braces around all $language attribute values. 
    * Moved declaration of language variable to top level of stylesheet.
    Tested with Xalan, Saxon, and xsltproc.

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: param.xweb; docbook.xsl; param.ent

    Added the man.authors.section.enabled and
    man.copyright.section.enabled parameters. Set those to zero when
    you want to suppress display of the auto-generated AUTHORS and
    COPYRIGHT sections. Closes request #1467806. Thanks to Daniel
    Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: docbook.xsl

    Took the test that the manpages stylesheet does to see if there
    are any Refentry chilren in current doc, and made it
    namespace-agnostic. Reason for that is because the test otherwise
    won't work when it is copied over into the generated
    profile-docbook.xsl stylesheet.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile

    Added a manpages/profile-docbook.xsl file to enable single-pass
    profiling for manpages output.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: info.xsl

    Output copyright and legalnotice in man-page output in whatever
    place they are in in document order. Closes #1690539. Thanks to
    Daniel Leidert for reporting.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: docbook.xsl

    Restored support for single-pass namespace stripping to manpages
    stylesheet.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: synop.xsl; block.xsl; info.xsl; inline.xsl; lists.xsl; endnotes.xsl; ut⋯

    Changed handling of bold and italic/underline output in manpages
    output. Should be transparent to users, but...
    
    This touches handling of all bold and italic/underline output. The
    exact change is that the mode="bold" and mode="italic" utility
    templates were changed to named templates. (I think maybe I've
    changed it back and forth from mode to named before, so this is
    maybe re-reverting it yet again).
    
    Anyway, the reason for the change is that the templates are
    sometimes call on dynamically node-sets, and using modes to format
    those doesn't allow passing info about the current/real context
    node from the source (not the node-set created by the stylesheet)
    to that formatting stage.
    
    The named templates allow the context to be passed in as a
    parameter, so that the bold/ital formatting template can use
    context-aware condition checking.
    
    This was basically necessary in order to suppress bold formatting
    in titles, which otherwise gets screwed up because of the numbnut
    way that roff handles nested bold/ital.
    
    Closes #1674534). Much thanks to Daniel Leidert, whose in his
    docbook-xsl bug-finding kung-fu has achieved Grand Master status.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl

    Fixed handling of example instances by adding the example element
    to the same template we use for processing figure. Closes
    #1674538. Thanks to Daniel Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    Don't include lang in manpages filename/pathname if lang=en (that
    is, only generate lang-qualified file-/pathnames for non-English).
  • Michael(tm) Smith: endnotes.xsl

    In manpages output, emit warnings for notesources (footnote, etc.)
    that have something other than para as a child.
    
    The numbered-with-hanging-indent formatting that's used for
    rendering endnotes in the NOTES section of man pages places some
    limits/assumptions on how the DocBook source is marked up; namely,
    for notesources (footnote, annotation, etc.) that can contain
    block-level children, if the they have a block-level child such as
    a table or itemizedlist or orderedlist that is the first child of
    a footnote, we have no way of rendering/indenting its content
    properly in the endnotes list.
    
    Thus, the manpages stylesheet not emits a warning message for that
    case, and suggests the "fix" (which is to wrap the table or
    itemizedlist or whatever in a para that has some preferatory text.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: utility.xsl

    Added support to mixed-block template for handling tables in
    mixed-blocks (e.g., as child of para) correctly.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: table.xsl; synop.xsl; block.xsl; info.xsl; lists.xsl; refentry.xsl; end⋯

    Reverted necessary escaping of backslash, dot, and dash
    out of the well-intentioned (but it now appears,
    misguided) "marker" mechanism (introduced in the 1.72.0
    release) -- which made use of alternative "marker"
    characters as internal representations of those
    characters, and then replaced them just prior to
    serialization -- and back into what's basically the
    system that was used prior to the 1.69.0 release; that
    is, into a part of stylesheet code that gets executed
    at the beginning of processing -- before any other roff
    markup up is. This change obviates the need for the
    marker system. It also requires a lot less RAM during
    processing (for large files, the marker mechanism
    ending up requiring gigabytes of memory).
    
    Closes bug #1661177. Thanks to Scott Smedley for
    providing a test case (the fvwm man page) that exposed
    the problem with the marker mechanism.
    
    Also moved the mechanism for converting non-breaking
    spaces back into the same area of the stylesheet code.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Fixed problem with incorrect formatting of nested variablelist.
    Closes bug #1650931. Thanks to Daniel "Eagle Eye" Leidert.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: lists.xsl

    Make sure that all listitems in itemizedlist and orderedlist are
    preceded by a blank line. This fixes a regression that occurred
    when instances of the TP macro that were use in a previous
    versions of the list-handling code were switched to RS/RE (because
    TP doesn't support nesting). TP automatically generates a blank
    line, but RS doesn't. So I added a .sp before each .RS
  • Michael(tm) Smith: block.xsl; inline.xsl; param.xweb; docbook.xsl; links.xsl; param.ent

    Made a number of changes related to elements with
    out-of-line content:
    
    - 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/footnotes.
    
      That means a numbered marker is generated inline to
      mark the place in the main flow where the imagedata,
      audiodata, or videodata element occurs, and a
      corresponding numbered endnote for it is generated in
      the endnotes list at the end of the man page; the
      endnote contains the URL from the fileref attribute
      of the imagedata, audiodata, or videodata element.
    
      For mediobject and inlinemediaobject instances that
      have a textobject child, the textobject is displayed
      within the main text flow.
    
    - Renamed several man.link.* params to man.endnotes.*,
      to reflect that fact that the endnotes list now
      contains more than just links. Also did similar
      renaming for a number of stylesheet-internal vars.
    
    - Added support for xlink:href (along with existing
      support for the legacy ulink element).
    
    - Cleaned up and streamlined the endnotes-handling
      code. It's still messy and klunky and the basic
      mechanism it uses is very inefficent for documents
      that contain a lot of notesources, but at least it's
      a bit better than it was.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: callout.graphics.extension.xml

    Clarified that 'extension' refers to file names.
  • Michael(tm) Smith: abstract.notitle.enabled.xml

    Added new param abstract.notitle.enabled.

    Because sometimes you really don't want or need that title
    there...
  • Michael(tm) Smith: man.string.subst.map.xml

    Updated manpages string-substitute map to reflect fact that
    because of another recent change to suppress bold markup in .SH

    The code was provided by Jana Dvorakova
  • Robert Stayton: header.table.properties.xml; footer.table.properties.xml

    Support adding table properties to header and footer tables.

Highlighting

The following changes have been made to the highlighting code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Jirka Kosek: c-hl.xml; xslthl-config.xml

    Added support for C language. Provided by Bruno Guegan.

Profiling

The following changes have been made to the profiling code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Robert Stayton: profile-mode.xsl

    Add support for new profiling attributes audience and wordsize.

Lib

The following changes have been made to the lib code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: lib.xweb

    Changed name of prepend-pad template to pad-string and twheeked so
    it can do both right/left padding.

Tools

The following changes have been made to the tools code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: bin; bin/docbook-xsl-update

    Did some cleanup to the install.sh source and added a
    docbook-xsl-update script to the docbook-xsl distro, the purpose
    of which is to facilitate easy sync-up to the latest docbook-xsl
    snapshot (by means of rsync).

XSL-Saxon

The following changes have been made to the xsl-saxon code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Mauritz Jeanson: xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Verbatim.java; xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/⋯

    Added modifications so that the new callout.icon.size parameter is taken into account. This
    parameter is used for FO output (where SVG now is the default graphics format for callouts).
  • Mauritz Jeanson: saxon65/src/com/nwalsh/saxon/FormatCallout.java; xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/x⋯

    Added code for generating id attributes on callouts in HTML and FO output.
    These patches enable cross-references to callouts placed by area coordinates.
    It works for graphic, unicode and text callouts. 
    Part of fix for bug #1675513 (xref to area broken).

XSL-Xalan

The following changes have been made to the xsl-xalan code since the 1.72.0 release.

  • Michael(tm) Smith: Makefile; xalan2

    Turned off xalan2.jar build. This removes DocBook XSL
    Java extensions support for versions of Xalan prior to
    Xalan 2.7. If you are currently using the extensions
    with an earlier version of Xalan, you need to upgrade
    to Xalan 2.7.
  • Mauritz Jeanson: xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Verbatim.java; xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/⋯

    Added modifications so that the new callout.icon.size parameter is taken into account. This

Release: 1.72.0

This release includes important bug fixes and adds the following significant feature changes:

Automatic sorting of glossary entries

The HTML and FO stylesheets now support automatic sorting of glossary entries. To enable glossary sorting, set the value of the glossary.sort parameter to 1 (by default, it’s value is 0). When you enable glossary sorting, glossentry elements within a glossary, glossdiv, or glosslist are sorted on the glossterm, using the current language setting. If you don’t enable glossary sorting, then the order of glossentry elements is left “as is” — that is, they are not sorted but are instead just displayed in document order.

WordML renamed to Roundtrip, OpenOffice support added

Stylesheets for “roundtrip” conversion between documents in OpenOffice format (ODF) and DocBook XML have been added to the set of stylesheets that formerly had the collective title WordML, and that set of stylesheets has been renamed to Roundtrip to better reflect the actual scope and purpose of its contents.

So the DocBook XSL Stylesheets now support roundtrip conversion (with certain limitations) of WordML, OpenOffice, and Apple Pages documents to and from DocBook XML.

Including QandASet questions in TOCs

The HTML stylesheet now provides support for including QandASet questions in the document TOC. To enable display of questions in the document TOC, set the value of the qanda.in.toc to 1 (by default, it’s 0). When you enable qanda.in.toc, then the generated table of contents for a document will include qandaset titles, qandadiv titles, and question elements. The default value of zero excludes them from the TOC.

Note

The qanda.in.toc parameter does not affect any tables of contents that may be generated within a qandaset or qandadiv (only in the document TOC).

Language identifier in man-page filenames and pathnames

Added new parameter man.output.lang.in.name.enabled, which controls whether a language identifier is included in man-page filenames and pathnames. It works like this:

If the value of man.output.lang.in.name.enabled is non-zero, man-page files are output with a language identifier included in their filenames or pathnames as follows:

index.page.number.properties property set

For FO output, use the index.page.number.properties to control formatting of page numbers in index output — to (for example) to display page numbers in index output in a different color (to indicate that they are links).

Crop marks in output from Antenna House XSL Formatter

Support has been added for generating crop marks in print/PDF output generated using Antenna House XSL Formatter

More string-substitution hooks in manpages output

The man.string.subst.map.local.pre and man.string.subst.map.local.post parameters have been added to enable easier control over custom string substitutions.

Moved verbatim properties to attribute-set

The hardcoded properties used in verbatim elements (literallayout, programlisting, screen) were moved to the verbatim.properties attribute-set so they can be more easily customized.

enhanced simple.xlink template

Now the simple.xlink template in inline.xsl works with cross reference elements xref and link as well. Also, more elements call simple.xlink, which enables DB5 xlink functionality.

DocBook 5 compatibility

Stylesheets now consistently support DocBook 5 attributes (such as xml:id). Also, DocBook 5 info elements are now checked along with other *info elements, and the use of name() function was replaced by local-name() so it also matches on DocBook 5 elements. These changes enable reusing the stylesheets with DocBook 5 documents with minimal fixup.

HTML class attributes now handled in class.attribute mode

The HTML class attributes were formerly hardcoded to the element name. Now the class attribute is generated by applying templates in class.attribute mode so class attribute names can be customized. The default is still the element name.

arabic-indic numbering enabled in autolabels

Numbering of chapter, sections, and pages can now use arabic-indic numbering when number format is set to 'arabicindic' or to ١.

The following is a detailed list of changes (not including bug fixes) that have been made since the 1.71.1 release.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Add support for arabicindic numbering to autolabel.format template.

  • Finish support for @xml:id everywhere @id is used.

  • replace name() with local-name() in most cases.

  • Add support for info.

  • Add utility template tabstyle to return the tabstyle from
    any table element.

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Add support for sorting glossary entries

  • Add table.row.properties template to customize table rows.

  • Moved all properties to attribute-sets so can be customized more easily.

  • Add index.page.number.properties attribute-set to format page numbers.

  • xref now supports xlink:href, using simple.xlink template.

  • Rewrote simple.xlink, and call it with all charseq templates.

  • Add simple.xlink processing to term and member elements.

  • Add support for crop marks in Antenna House.

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Add support for sorting glossary entries

  • Add support for qanda.in.toc to add qandaentry questions to document TOC.

  • add simple.xlink support to variablelist term and simplelist member.

  • *.propagates.style now handled in class.attribute mode.

  • add class parameter to class.attribute mode to set default class.

  • Convert all class attributes to use the class.attribute mode
    so class names can be customized more easily.

  • Add class.attribute mode to generate class attributes.

  • Added simple.xlink to most remaining inlines.
    Changed class attributes to applying class.attributes mode.

  • Changed xref template to use simple.xlink tempalte.

  • Improve generate.html.title to work with link targets too.

  • Improved simple.xlink to support link and xref.

  • Use new link.title.attribute now.

  • Rewrote simple.xlink to handle linkend also.
    Better computation of title attribute on link too.

  • Handle Xalan quirk as special case.

  • Add support for info.

  • Fixed imagemaps so they work properly going from calspair coords
    to HTML area coords.

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added doc for man.output.lang.in.name.enabled parameter. This
    checkin completes support for writing file/pathnames for man-pages
    with $lang include in the names. Closes #1585967. knightly
    accolades to Daniel Leidert for providing the feature request.

  • Added new param man.output.lang.in.name.enabled, which
    controls whether $LANG value is included in manpages
    filenames and pathnames. It works like this:

    If the value of man.output.lang.in.name.enabled is non-zero,
    man-page files are output with the $lang value included in
    their filenames or pathnames as follows;

    - if man.output.subdirs.enabled is non-zero, each file is
      output to, e.g., a /$lang/man8/foo.8 pathname

    - if man.output.subdirs.enabled is zero, each file is output
      with a foo.$lang.8 filename

  • Use "\e" instead of "\\" for backslash output, because the
    groff docs say that's the correct thing to do; also because
    testing (thanks, Paul Dubois) shows that "\\" doesn't always
    work as expected; for example, "\\" within a table seems to
    mess things up.

  • Added the man.string.subst.map.local.pre and
    man.string.subst.map.local.post parameters. Those parameters
    enable local additions and changes to string-substitution mappings
    without the need to change the value of man.string.subst.map
    parameter (which is for standard system mappings). Closes
    #1456738. Thanks to Sam Steingold for constructing a true
    stylesheet torture test (the clisp docs) that exposed the need for
    these params.

  • Added the Markup element to the list of elements that get output
    in bold. Thanks to Eric S. Raymond.

  • Replaced all dots in roff requests with U+2302 ("house"
    character), and added escaping in output for all instances of dot
    that are not in roff requests. This fixes the problem case where a
    string beginning with a dot (for example, the string ".bashrc")
    might occur at the beginning of a line in output, in which case 
    would mistakenly get interpreted as a roff request. Thanks to Eric
    S. Raymond for pushing to fix this.

  • Made change to ensure that list content nested in
    itemizedlist and orderedlist instances is properly indented. This
    is a switch from using .TP to format those lists to using .RS/.RE
    to format them instead (because .TP does not allow nesting). Closes bug #1602616.
    Thanks to Daniel Leidert.

Params

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added doc for man.output.lang.in.name.enabled parameter. This
    checkin completes support for writing file/pathnames for man-pages
    with $lang include in the names. Closes #1585967. knightly
    accolades to Daniel Leidert for providing the feature request.

  • Added new param man.output.lang.in.name.enabled, which
    controls whether $LANG value is included in manpages
    filenames and pathnames. It works like this:

    If the value of man.output.lang.in.name.enabled is non-zero,
    man-page files are output with the $lang value included in
    their filenames or pathnames as follows;

    - if man.output.subdirs.enabled is non-zero, each file is
      output to, e.g., a /$lang/man8/foo.8 pathname

    - if man.output.subdirs.enabled is zero, each file is output
      with a foo.$lang.8 filename

  • Added the man.string.subst.map.local.pre and
    man.string.subst.map.local.post parameters. Those parameters
    enable local additions and changes to string-substitution mappings
    without the need to change the value of man.string.subst.map
    parameter (which is for standard system mappings). Closes
    #1456738. Thanks to Sam Steingold for constructing a true
    stylesheet torture test (the clisp docs) that exposed the need for
    these params.

  • Add index.page.number.properties by default.

  • Added index.page.number.properties to allow customizations of page numbers in indexes.

  • Move show-destination="replace" property from template to attribute-set
    so it can be customized.

  • Add support for sorting glossary entries

  • Add option to include qanda in tables of contents.

  • Moved all properties to attribute-sets so can be customized more easily.

Template

The following changes have been made to the template code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added workaround for Xalan bug: use for-each and copy instead of copy-of (#1604770).

Roundtrip

The following changes have been made to the roundtrip code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • rename to roundtrip, add OpenOffice support

Release: 1.71.1

This is a minor update to the 1.71.0 release. Along with a number of bug fixes, it includes two feature changes:

  • Added support for profiling based on xml:lang and status attributes.

  • Added initial support in manpages output for footnote, annotation, and alt instances. Basically, they all now get handled the same way ulink instances are. They are treated as a class as "note sources": A numbered marker is generated at the place in the main text flow where they occur, then their contents are displayed in an endnotes section at the end of the man page.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • For backward compatability autoidx-ng.xsl is invoking "kosek" indexing method again.

  • Add support for Xalan generating a root xml:base like saxon.

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • For backward compatability autoidx-ng.xsl is invoking "kosek" indexing method again.

  • Add support for Xalan to add root node xml:base for db5 docs.

  • Added support for profiling based on xml:lang and status attributes.

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • For backward compatability autoidx-ng.xsl is invoking "kosek" indexing method again.

  • Add support for Xalan to add root node xml:base for db5 docs.

  • Added support for profiling based on xml:lang and status attributes.

  • Made changes in namespace declarations to prevent xmllint's
    canonicalizer from treating them as relative namespace URIs.

      - Changed xmlns:k="java:com.isogen.saxoni18n.Saxoni18nService"
        to xmlns:k="http://www.isogen.com/functions/com.isogen.saxoni18n.Saxoni18nService";
        Saxon accepts either form
        (see http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/extensibility/functions.html);
        to Saxon, "the part of the URI before the final '/' is immaterial".

      - Changed, e.g. xmlns:xverb="com.nwalsh.xalan.Verbatim" to
        xmlns:xverb="xalan://com.nwalsh.xalan.Verbatim"; Xalan accepts
        either form
        (see http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/extensions.html#java-namespace-declare);
        just as Saxon does, it will "simply use the string to the
        right of the rightmost forward slash as the Java class name".

      - Changed xmlns:xalanredirect="org.apache.xalan.xslt.extensions.Redirect"
        to xmlns:redirect="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/redirect", and
        adjusted associated code to make the current Xalan redirect spec.
        (see http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/apidocs/org/apache/xalan/lib/Redirect.html)

  • Added the html.append and chunk.append parameters. By default, the
    value of both is empty; but the internal DocBook XSL stylesheets
    build sets their value to "<xsl:text>&#x0a;</xsl:text>", in order
    to ensure that all files in the docbook-xsl-doc package end in a
    newline character. (Because diff and some other tools may emit
    error messages and/or not behave as expected when processing
    files that are not newline-terminated.)

Highlighting

The following changes have been made to the highlighting code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added license information

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added initial support in manpages output for footnoteannotation,
    and alt instances. Basically, they all now get handled the same
    way ulink instances are. They are treated as a class as "note
    sources": A numbered marker is generated at the place in the main
    text flow where they occur, then their contents are displayed in
    an endnotes section at the end of the man page (currently titled
    REFERENCES, for English output, but will be changed to NOTES).

    This support is not yet complete. It works for most "normal"
    cases, but probably mishandles a good number of cases. More
    testing will be needed to expose the problems. It may well also
    introduce some bugs and regressions in other areas, including
    basic paragraph handling, handling of "mixed block" content,
    handling of other indented content, and handling of authorblurb
    and personblurb in the AUTHORS section.

Params

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added support for profiling based on xml:lang and status attributes.

  • Added the html.append and chunk.append parameters. By default, the
    value of both is empty; but the internal DocBook XSL stylesheets
    build sets their value to "<xsl:text>&#x0a;</xsl:text>", in order
    to ensure that all files in the docbook-xsl-doc package end in a
    newline character. (Because diff and some other tools may emit
    error messages and/or not behave as expected when processing
    files that are not newline-terminated.)

Profiling

The following changes have been made to the profiling code since the 1.71.1 release.

  • Added support for profiling based on xml:lang and status attributes.

Release: 1.71.0

This is mainly a bug fix release, but it also includes two significant feature changes:

Highlighting support added

The stylesheets now include support for source-code highlighting in output of programlisting instances (controlled through the highlight.source parameter). The Java-based implementation requires Saxon and makes use of Michal Molhanec’s XSLTHL. More details are available at Jirka Kosek’s website:

The support is currently limited to highlighting of XML, Java, PHP, Delphi, Modula-2 sources, and INI files.

Changes to autoindexing

The templates that handle alternative indexing methods were reworked to avoid errors produced by certain processors not being able to tolerate the presence of unused functions. With this release, none of the code for the 'kimber' or 'kosek' methods is included in the default stylesheets. In order to use one of those methods, your customization layer must import one of the optional stylesheet modules:

  • html/autoidx-kosek.xsl
  • html/autoidx-kimber.xsl
  • fo/autoidx-kosek.xsl
  • fo/autoidx-kimber.xsl

See the index.method parameter reference page for more information.

Two other changes to note:

  • The default indexing method now can handle accented characters in latin-based alphabets, not just English. This means accented latin letters will group and sort with their unaccented counterpart.
  • The default value for the index.method parameter was changed from 'english' to 'basic' because now the default method can handle latin-based alphabets, not just English.

The following is a list of changes that have been made since the 1.70.1 release.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.70.1 release.

  • Added reference.autolabel parameter for controlling labels on
    reference output.

  • Support rows that are *completely* overlapped by the preceding row

  • New modules for supporting indexing extensions.

  • Support startinglinenumber on orderedlist

Extensions

The following changes have been made to the extensions code since the 1.70.1 release.

  • Completely reworked extensions build system; now uses NetBeans and ant

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.70.1 release.

  • xsl:sort lang attribute now uses two-char substring of lang attribute.

  • Support titlecase "Java", "Perl", and "IDL" as values for the
    language attribute on classsynopsis, etc. (instead of just
    lowercase "java", "perl", and "idl"). Also support "c++" and "C++"
    (instead of just "cpp").

    Affects HTML, FO, and manpages output. Closes bug 1552332. Thanks
    to "Brian A. Vanderburg II".

  • Added support for the reference.autolabel param in (X)HTML and FO
    output.

  • Support rows that are *completely* overlapped by the preceding row

  • Rearranged templates for the 3 indexing methods
    and changed method named 'english' to 'basic'.

  • New modules for supporting indexing extensions.

  • Turn off blank-body for fop1.extensions too since fop 0.92
    does not support it either.

  • Add Xalan variant to test for exslt:node-set function.
    Xalan can use function named node-set(), but doesn't
    recognize it using function-available().

  • Added support to FO stylesheets for handling instances of Org
    where it occurs outside of *info content. In HTML stylesheets,
    moved handling of Org out of info.xsl and into inline.xsl. In both
    FO and HTML stylesheets, added support for correctly processing
    Affiliation and Jobtitle.

  • Don't output punctuation between Refname and Refpurpose if
    Refpurpose is empty. Also corrected handling of Refsect2/title
    instances, and removed some debugging stuff that was generated in
    manpages output to mark the ends of sections.

  • Added new email.delimiters.enabled param. If non-zero (the
    default), delimiters are generated around e-mail addresses (output
    of the email element). If zero, the delimiters are suppressed.

  • Initial support of syntax highlighting of programlistings.

  • Chapter after preface should restart numbering of pages.

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.70.1 release.

  • xsl:sort lang attribute now uses two-char substring of lang attribute.

  • Support titlecase "Java", "Perl", and "IDL" as values for the
    language attribute on classsynopsis, etc. (instead of just
    lowercase "java", "perl", and "idl"). Also support "c++" and "C++"
    (instead of just "cpp").

    Affects HTML, FO, and manpages output. Closes bug 1552332. Thanks
    to "Brian A. Vanderburg II".

  • Added support for the reference.autolabel param in (X)HTML and FO
    output.

  • Support rows that are *completely* overlapped by the preceding row

  • Rearranged templates for the 3 indexing methods
    and changed method named 'english' to 'basic'.

  • New modules for supporting indexing extensions.

  • Added several new HTML parameters for controlling appearance of
    content on HTML title pages:

    contrib.inline.enabled:
      If non-zero (the default), output of the contrib element is
      displayed as inline content rather than as block content.

    othercredit.like.author.enabled:
      If non-zero, output of the othercredit element on titlepages is
      displayed in the same style as author and editor output. If zero
      (the default), othercredit output is displayed using a style
      different than that of author and editor.

    blurb.on.titlepage.enabled:
      If non-zero, output from authorblurb and personblurb elements is
      displayed on title pages. If zero (the default), output from
      those elements is suppressed on title pages (unless you are
      using a titlepage customization that causes them to be included).

    editedby.enabled
      If non-zero (the default), a localized Edited by heading is
      displayed above editor names in output of the editor element.

  • Add Xalan variant to test for exslt:node-set function.
    Xalan can use function named node-set(), but doesn't
    recognize it using function-available().

  • Added support to FO stylesheets for handling instances of Org
    where it occurs outside of *info content. In HTML stylesheets,
    moved handling of Org out of info.xsl and into inline.xsl. In both
    FO and HTML stylesheets, added support for correctly processing
    Affiliation and Jobtitle.

  • Don't output punctuation between Refname and Refpurpose if
    Refpurpose is empty. Also corrected handling of Refsect2/title
    instances, and removed some debugging stuff that was generated in
    manpages output to mark the ends of sections.

  • Added new email.delimiters.enabled param. If non-zero (the
    default), delimiters are generated around e-mail addresses (output
    of the email element). If zero, the delimiters are suppressed.

  • Added qanda.nested.in.toc param. Default value is zero. If
    non-zero, instances of "nested" Qandaentry (ones that are children
    of Answer elements) are displayed in the TOC. Closes patch 1509018
    (from Daniel Leidert). Currently on affects HTML output (no patch
    for FO output provided).

  • Improved handling of relative locations generated files

  • Initial support of syntax highlighting of programlistings.

  • Support org

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.70.1 release.

  • Suppress footnote markers and output warning that footnotes are
    not yet supported.

  • Handle instances of address/otheraddr/ulink in author et al in the
    same way as email instances; that is, display them on the same
    linke as the authoreditor, etc., name.

  • Don't number or link-list any Ulink instance whose string value is
    identical to the value of its url attribute. Just display it inline.

  • Don't output punctuation between Refname and Refpurpose if
    Refpurpose is empty. Also corrected handling of Refsect2/title
    instances, and removed some debugging stuff that was generated in
    manpages output to mark the ends of sections.

  • Added new email.delimiters.enabled param. If non-zero (the
    default), delimiters are generated around e-mail addresses (output
    of the email element). If zero, the delimiters are suppressed.

  • In manpages output, if the last/nearest *info element for
    particular Refentry has multiple Copyright and/or Legalnotice
    children, process them all (not just the first ones). Closes bug

      If non-zero, output of the othercredit element on titlepages is
      displayed in the same style as author and editor output. If zero
      (the default), othercredit output is displayed using a style

Release: 1.70.1

This is a stable release of the 1.70 stylesheets. It includes only a few small changes from 1.70.0.

The following is a list of changes that have been made since the 1.70.0 release.

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.70.0 release.

  • Added three new attribute sets (revhistory.title.properties, revhistory.table.properties and revhistory.table.cell.properties) for controlling appearance of revhistory in FO output.

    Modified: fo/block.xsl,1.34; fo/param.ent,1.101; fo/param.xweb,1.114; fo/titlepage.xsl,1.41; params/revhistory.table.cell.properties.xml,1.1; params/revhistory.table.properties.xml,1.1; params/revhistory.title.properties.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Support DBv5 revisions with full author name (not only authorinitials)

HTMLHelp

The following changes have been made to the htmlhelp code since the 1.70.0 release.

  • htmlhelp.generate.index is now param, not variable. This means that you can override its setting from outside. This is useful when you generate indexterms on the fly (see http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/07/14/dbndx.html?page=3).

    Modified: htmlhelp/htmlhelp-common.xsl,1.38 - Jirka Kosek

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.70.0 release.

  • Added three new attribute sets (revhistory.title.properties, revhistory.table.properties and revhistory.table.cell.properties) for controlling appearance of revhistory in FO output.

    Modified: fo/block.xsl,1.34; fo/param.ent,1.101; fo/param.xweb,1.114; fo/titlepage.xsl,1.41; params/revhistory.table.cell.properties.xml,1.1; params/revhistory.table.properties.xml,1.1; params/revhistory.title.properties.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

Release: 1.70.0

As with all DocBook Project dot-zero releases, this is an experimental release. It will be followed shortly by a stable release.

This release adds a number of new features, including:

  • support for selecting alternative index-collation methods (in particular, support for using a collation library developed by Eliot Kimber)

  • improved handling of DocBook 5 document instances (through a namespace-stripping mechanism)

  • full support for CALS and HTML tables in manpages output

  • a mechanism for preserving relative URIs in documents that make use of XInclude

  • support for the "new" .90 version of FOP

  • enhanced capabilities for controlling formatting of lists in HTML and FO output

  • autogeneration of AUTHOR and COPYRIGHT sections in manpages output

  • support for generating crop marks in FO/PDF output

  • support for qandaset as a root element in FO output

  • support for floatstyle and orient on all table types

  • support for floatstyle in figure, and example

  • pgwide.properties attribute-set supports extending figure, example and table into the left indent area instead of spanning multiple columns.

The following is a detailed list of enhancements and API changes that have been made since the 1.69.1 release.

Common

The following changes have been made to the common code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Add the xsl:key for the kimber indexing method.

    Modified: common/autoidx-ng.xsl,1.2 - Robert Stayton

  • Add support for qandaset.

    Modified: common/labels.xsl,1.37; common/subtitles.xsl,1.7; common/titles.xsl,1.35 - Robert Stayton

  • Support dbhtml/dbfo start PI for orderedlist numbering in both HTML and FO

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.61; html/lists.xsl,1.50 - Norman Walsh

  • Added CVS header.

    Modified: common/stripns.xsl,1.12 - Robert Stayton

  • Changed content model of text element to ANY rather than #PCDATA because they could contain markup.

    Modified: common/targetdatabase.dtd,1.7 - Robert Stayton

  • Added refentry.meta.get.quietly param.

    If zero (the default), notes and warnings about "missing" markup are generated during gathering of refentry metadata. If non-zero, the metadata is gathered "quietly" -- that is, the notes and warnings are suppressed.

    NOTE: If you are processing a large amount of refentry content, you may be able to speed up processing significantly by setting a non-zero value for refentry.meta.get.quietly.

    Modified: common/refentry.xsl,1.17; manpages/param.ent,1.15; manpages/param.xweb,1.17; params/refentry.meta.get.quietly.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • After namespace stripping, the source document is the temporary tree created by the stripping process and it has the wrong base URI for relative references. Earlier versions of this code used to try to fix that by patching the elements with relative @fileref attributes. That was inadequate because it calculated an absolute base URI without considering that there might be xml:base attributes already in effect. It seems obvious now that the right thing to do is simply to put the xml:base on the root of the document. And that seems to work.

    Modified: common/stripns.xsl,1.7 - Norman Walsh

  • Added support for "software" and "sectdesc" class values on refmiscinfo; "software" is treated identically to "source", and "setdesc" is treated identically to "manual".

    Modified: common/refentry.xsl,1.10; params/man.th.extra2.max.length.xml,1.3; params/refentry.source.name.profile.xml,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for DocBook 5 namespace-stripping in manpages stylesheet. Closes request #1210692.

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.56; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.57 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added <xsl:template match="/"> to make stripns.xsl usable as a standalone stylesheet for stripping out DocBook 5/NG to DocBook 4. Note that DocBook XSLT drivers that include this stylesheet all override the match="/" template.

    Modified: common/stripns.xsl,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Number figures, examples, and tables from book if there is no prefix (i.e. if chapter.autolabel is set to 0). This avoids having the list of figures where the figures mysteriously restart their numeration periodically when chapter.autolabel is set to 0.

    Modified: common/labels.xsl,1.36 - David Cramer

  • Add task template in title.markup mode.

    Modified: common/titles.xsl,1.34 - Robert Stayton

  • Add children (with ids) of formal objects to target data.

    Modified: common/targets.xsl,1.10 - Robert Stayton

  • Added support for case when personname doesn't contain specific name markup (as allowed in DocBook 5.0)

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.54 - Jirka Kosek

Extensions

The following changes have been made to the extensions code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Support Xalan 2.7

    Modified: extensions/xalan27/.cvsignore,1.1; extensions/xalan27/build.xml,1.1; extensions/xalan27/nbproject/.cvsignore,1.1; extensions/xalan27/nbproject/build-impl.xml,1.1; extensions/xalan27/nbproject/genfiles.properties,1.1; extensions/xalan27/nbproject/project.properties,1.1; extensions/xalan27/nbproject/project.xml,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/CVS.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Callout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/FormatCallout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/FormatDingbatCallout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/FormatGraphicCallout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/FormatTextCallout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/FormatUnicodeCallout.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Func.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/ImageIntrinsics.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Params.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Table.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Text.java,1.1; extensions/xalan27/src/com/nwalsh/xalan/Verbatim.java,1.1 - Norman Walsh

  • Handle the case where the imageFn is actually a URI. This still needs work.

    Modified: extensions/saxon643/com/nwalsh/saxon/ImageIntrinsics.java,1.4 - Norman Walsh

FO

The following changes have been made to the fo code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Adapted to the new indexing code. Now works just like a wrapper that calls kosek indexing method, originally implemented here.

    Modified: fo/autoidx-ng.xsl,1.5 - Jirka Kosek

  • Added parameters for header/footer table minimum height.

    Modified: fo/pagesetup.xsl,1.60; fo/param.ent,1.100; fo/param.xweb,1.113 - Robert Stayton

  • Add the index.method parameter.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.99; fo/param.xweb,1.112 - Robert Stayton

  • Integrate support for three indexing methods: - the original English-only method. - Jirka Kosek's method using EXSLT extensions. - Eliot Kimber's method using Saxon extensions. Use the 'index.method' parameter to select.

    Modified: fo/autoidx.xsl,1.38 - Robert Stayton

  • Add support for TOC for qandaset in fo output.

    Modified: fo/autotoc.xsl,1.30; fo/qandaset.xsl,1.20 - Robert Stayton

  • Added parameter ulink.hyphenate.chars. Added parameter insert.link.page.number.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.98; fo/param.xweb,1.111 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented feature request #942524 to add insert.link.page.number to allow link element cross references to have a page number.

    Modified: fo/xref.xsl,1.67 - Robert Stayton

  • Add support for ulink.hyphenate.chars so more characters can be break points in urls.

    Modified: fo/xref.xsl,1.66 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented patch #1075144 to make the url text in a ulink in FO output an active link as well.

    Modified: fo/xref.xsl,1.65 - Robert Stayton

  • table footnotes now have their own table.footnote.properties attribute set.

    Modified: fo/footnote.xsl,1.23 - Robert Stayton

  • Add qandaset to root.elements.

    Modified: fo/docbook.xsl,1.41 - Robert Stayton

  • Added mode="page.sequence" to make it easier to put content into a page sequence. First used for qandaset.

    Modified: fo/component.xsl,1.37 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented feature request #1434408 to support formatting of biblioentry.

    Modified: fo/biblio.xsl,1.35 - Robert Stayton

  • Added biblioentry.properties.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.97; fo/param.xweb,1.110 - Robert Stayton

  • Support PTC/Arbortext bookmarks

    Modified: fo/docbook.xsl,1.40; fo/ptc.xsl,1.1 - Norman Walsh

  • Added table.footnote.properties to permit table footnotes to format differently from regular footnotes.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.96; fo/param.xweb,1.109 - Robert Stayton

  • Refactored table templates to unify their processing and support all options in all types. Now table and informaltable, in both Cals and Html markup, use the same templates where possible, and all support pgwide, rotation, and floats. There is also a placeholder table.container template to support wrapping a table in a layout table, so the XEP table title "continued" extension can be more easily implemented.

    Modified: fo/formal.xsl,1.52; fo/htmltbl.xsl,1.9; fo/table.xsl,1.48 - Robert Stayton

  • Added new attribute set toc.line.properties for controlling appearance of lines in ToC/LoT

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.94; fo/param.xweb,1.107 - Robert Stayton

  • Added refclass.suppress param.

    If the value of refclass.suppress is non-zero, then display refclass contents is suppressed in output. Affects HTML and FO output only.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.93; fo/param.xweb,1.106; html/param.ent,1.90; html/param.xweb,1.99; params/refclass.suppress.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Improved support for task subelements

    Modified: fo/task.xsl,1.3; html/task.xsl,1.3 - Jirka Kosek

  • Adjusted spacing around K&R-formatted Funcdef and Paramdef output such that it can more easily be discerned where one ends and the other begins. Closes #1213264.

    Modified: fo/synop.xsl,1.18 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Made handling of paramdef/parameter in FO output consistent with that in HTML and manpages output. Closes #1213259.

    Modified: fo/synop.xsl,1.17 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Made handling of Refnamediv consistent with formatting in HTML and manpages output; specifically, changed so that Refname (comma-separated list of multiple instances found) is used (instead of Refentrytitle as previously), then em-dash, then the Refpurpose. Closes #1212562.

    Modified: fo/refentry.xsl,1.30 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added output of Releaseinfo to recto titlepage ("copyright" page) for Book in FO output. This makes it consistent with HTML output. Closes #1327034. Thanks to Paul DuBois for reporting.

    Modified: fo/titlepage.templates.xml,1.28 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added condition for setting block-progression-dimension.minimum on table-row, instead of height, when fop1.extensions is non-zero. For an explanation of the reason for the change, see: http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/Troubleshooting/CommonLogMessages

    Modified: fo/pagesetup.xsl,1.59 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added new refclass.suppress param for suppressing display of Refclass in HTML and FO output. Did not add it to manpages because manpages stylesheet is currently just silently ignoring Refclass anyway. Closes request #1461065. Thanks to Davor Ocelic (docelic) for reporting.

    Modified: fo/refentry.xsl,1.29; html/refentry.xsl,1.23 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Add support for keep-together PI to informal objects.

    Modified: fo/formal.xsl,1.50 - Robert Stayton

  • table footnotes now also get footnote.properties attribute-set.

    Modified: fo/footnote.xsl,1.22 - Robert Stayton

  • Added index.separator named template to compute the separator punctuation based on locale.

    Modified: fo/autoidx.xsl,1.36 - Robert Stayton

  • Added support for link, olink, and xref within OO Classsynopsis and children. (Because DocBook NG/5 allows it).

    Modified: fo/synop.xsl,1.15; html/synop.xsl,1.19 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Support date as an inline

    Modified: fo/inline.xsl,1.43; html/inline.xsl,1.46 - Norman Walsh

  • Added new parameter keep.relative.image.uris

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.91; fo/param.xweb,1.104; html/param.ent,1.87; html/param.xweb,1.96; params/keep.relative.image.uris.xml,1.1 - Norman Walsh

  • Map Unicode space characters U+2000-U+200A to fo:leaders.

    Modified: fo/docbook.xsl,1.38; fo/passivetex.xsl,1.4; fo/spaces.xsl,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Generate localized title for Refsynopsisdiv if no appropriate Title descendant found in source. Closes #1212398. This change makes behavior for the Synopsis title consistent with the behavior of HTML and manpages output.

    Also, added xsl:use-attribute-sets="normal.para.spacing" to block generated for Cmdsynopsis output. Previously, that block had no spacing at all specified, which resulted it being crammed up to closely to the Synopsis head.

    Modified: fo/refentry.xsl,1.28; fo/synop.xsl,1.13 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added parameters to support localization of index item punctuation.

    Modified: fo/autoidx.xsl,1.35 - Robert Stayton

  • Added index.number.separator, index.range.separator, and index.term.separator parameters to support localization of punctuation in index entries.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.89; fo/param.xweb,1.102 - Robert Stayton

  • Added "Cross References" section in HTML doc (for consistency with the FO doc). Also, moved the existing FO "Cross References" section to follow the "Linking" section.

    Modified: fo/param.xweb,1.101; html/param.xweb,1.95 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added ID attribues to all Reference elements (e.g., id="tables" for the doc for section on Table params). So pages for all subsections of ref docs now have stable filenames instead of arbitrary generated filenames.

    Modified: fo/param.xweb,1.100; html/param.xweb,1.94 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added two new parameters for handling of multi-term varlistentry elements:

    variablelist.term.break.after: When the variablelist.term.break.after is non-zero, it will generate a line break after each term multi-term varlistentry.

    variablelist.term.separator: When a varlistentry contains multiple term elements, the string specified in the value of the variablelist.term.separator parameter is placed after each term except the last. The default is ", " (a comma followed by a space). To suppress rendering of the separator, set the value of variablelist.term.separator to the empty string ("").

    These parameters are primarily intended to be useful if you have multi-term varlistentries that have long terms.

    Closes #1306676. Thanks to Sam Steingold for providing an example "lots of long terms" doc that demonstrated the value of having these options.

    Also, added normalize-space() call to processing of each term.

    This change affects all output formats (HTML, PDF, manpages). The default behavior should pretty much remain the same as before, but it is possible (as always) that the change may introduce some new bugginess.

    Modified: fo/lists.xsl,1.62; fo/param.ent,1.88; fo/param.xweb,1.99; html/lists.xsl,1.48; html/param.ent,1.86; html/param.xweb,1.93; manpages/lists.xsl,1.22; manpages/param.ent,1.14; manpages/param.xweb,1.16; params/variablelist.term.break.after.xml,1.1; params/variablelist.term.separator.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Add sidebar titlepage placeholder attset for styles.

    Modified: fo/titlepage.xsl,1.37 - Robert Stayton

  • Add titlepage for sidebar.

    Modified: fo/titlepage.templates.xml,1.27 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented RFE #1292615.

    Added bunch of new parameters (attribute sets) that affect list presentation: list.block.properties, itemizedlist.properties, orderedlist.properties, itemizedlist.label.properties and orderedlist.label.properties. Default behaviour of stylesheets has not been changed but further customizations will be much more easier.

    Modified: fo/lists.xsl,1.61; fo/param.ent,1.87; fo/param.xweb,1.98; params/itemizedlist.label.properties.xml,1.1; params/itemizedlist.properties.xml,1.1; params/list.block.properties.xml,1.1; params/orderedlist.label.properties.xml,1.1; params/orderedlist.properties.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Implemented RFE #1242092.

    You can enable crop marks in your document by setting crop.marks=1 and xep.extensions=1. Appearance of crop marks can be controlled by parameters crop.mark.bleed (6pt), crop.mark.offset (24pt) and crop.mark.width (0.5pt).

    Also there is new named template called user-xep-pis. You can overwrite it in order to produce some PIs that can control XEP as described in http://www.renderx.com/reference.html#Output_Formats

HTML

The following changes have been made to the html code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • implemented index.method parameter and three methods.

    Modified: html/autoidx.xsl,1.28 - Robert Stayton

  • added index.method parameter to support 3 indexing methods.

    Modified: html/param.ent,1.94; html/param.xweb,1.103 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented feature request #1072510 as a processing instruction to permit including external HTML content into HTML output.

    Modified: html/pi.xsl,1.9 - Robert Stayton

  • Added new parameter chunk.tocs.and.lots.has.title which controls presence of title in a separate chunk with ToC/LoT. Disabling title can be very useful if you are generating frameset output (well, yes those frames, but some customers really want them ;-).

    Modified: html/chunk-code.xsl,1.15; html/param.ent,1.93; html/param.xweb,1.102; params/chunk.tocs.and.lots.has.title.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Support dbhtml/dbfo start PI for orderedlist numbering in both HTML and FO

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.61; html/lists.xsl,1.50 - Norman Walsh

  • Allow ToC without title also for set and book.

    Modified: html/autotoc.xsl,1.37; html/division.xsl,1.12 - Jirka Kosek

  • Implemented floats uniformly for figure, example, equation and informalfigure, informalexample, and informalequation.

    Modified: html/formal.xsl,1.22 - Robert Stayton

  • Added the autotoc.label.in.hyperlink param.

    If the value of autotoc.label.in.hyperlink is non-zero, labels are included in hyperlinked titles in the TOC. If it is instead zero, labels are still displayed prior to the hyperlinked titles, but are not hyperlinked along with the titles.

    Closes patch #1065868. Thanks to anatoly techtonik for the patch.

    Modified: html/autotoc.xsl,1.36; html/param.ent,1.92; html/param.xweb,1.101; params/autotoc.label.in.hyperlink.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added two new params: html.head.legalnotice.link.types and html.head.legalnotice.link.multiple.

    If the value of the generate.legalnotice.link is non-zero, then the stylesheet generates (in the head section of the HTML source) either a single HTML link element or, if the value of the html.head.legalnotice.link.multiple is non-zero, one link element for each link type specified. Each link has the following attributes:

    - a rel attribute whose value is derived from the value of html.head.legalnotice.link.types

    - an href attribute whose value is set to the URL of the file containing the legalnotice

    - a title attribute whose value is set to the title of the corresponding legalnotice (or a title programatically determined by the stylesheet)

    For example:

    <link rel="copyright" href="ln-id2524073.html" title="Legal Notice">

    Closes #1476450. Thanks to Sam Steingold.

  • Added refclass.suppress param.

    If the value of refclass.suppress is non-zero, then display refclass contents is suppressed in output. Affects HTML and FO output only.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.93; fo/param.xweb,1.106; html/param.ent,1.90; html/param.xweb,1.99; params/refclass.suppress.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Improved support for task subelements

    Modified: fo/task.xsl,1.3; html/task.xsl,1.3 - Jirka Kosek

  • Added new refclass.suppress param for suppressing display of Refclass in HTML and FO output. Did not add it to manpages because manpages stylesheet is currently just silently ignoring Refclass anyway. Closes request #1461065. Thanks to Davor Ocelic (docelic) for reporting.

    Modified: fo/refentry.xsl,1.29; html/refentry.xsl,1.23 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Process alt text with normalize-space(). Replace tab indents with spaces.

    Modified: html/graphics.xsl,1.57 - Robert Stayton

  • Content of citation element is automatically linked to the bibliographic entry with the corresponding abbrev.

    Modified: html/biblio.xsl,1.26; html/inline.xsl,1.47; html/xref.xsl,1.58 - Jirka Kosek

  • Add template for task in mode="xref-to".

    Modified: fo/xref.xsl,1.63; html/xref.xsl,1.57 - Robert Stayton

  • Suppress ID warnings if the .warnings parameter is 0

    Modified: html/html.xsl,1.17 - Norman Walsh

  • Add support for floatstyle to figure.

    Modified: html/formal.xsl,1.21 - Robert Stayton

  • Handling of xref to area/areaset need support in extensions code also. I currently have no time to touch extensions code, so code is here to be enabled when extension is fixed also.

    Modified: html/xref.xsl,1.56 - Jirka Kosek

  • Added 3 parameters for overriding gentext for index punctuation.

    Modified: html/param.ent,1.89; html/param.xweb,1.98 - Robert Stayton

  • Added parameters to support localization of index item punctuation. Added index.separator named template to compute the separator punctuation based on locale.

    Modified: html/autoidx.xsl,1.27 - Robert Stayton

  • Added a <div class="{$class}-contents"> wrapper around output of contents of all formal objects. Also, added an optional <br class="{class}-break"/> linebreak after all formal objects.

    WARNING: Because this change places an additional DIV between the DIV wrapper for the equation and the equation contents, it may break some existing CSS stylesheets that have been created with the assumption that there would never be an intervening DIV there.

    The following is an example of what Equation output looks like as a result of the changes described above.

    <div class="equation"> <a name="three" id="three"></a>

    <p class="title"><b>(1.3)</b></p>

    <div class="equation-contents"> <span class="mathphrase">1+1=3</span> </div> </div><br class="equation-break">

    Rationale: These changes allow CSS control of the placement of the formal-object title relative to the formal-object contents. For example, using the CSS "float" property enables the title and contents to be rendered on the same line. Example stylesheet:

    .equation { margin-top: 20px; margin-bottom: 20px; } .equation-contents { float: left; }

    .equation .title { margin-top: 0; float: right; margin-right: 200px; }

    .equation .title b { font-weight: normal; }

    .equation-break { clear: both; }

    Note that the purpose of the ".equation-break" class is to provide a way to clear off the floats.

    If you want to instead have the equation title rendered to the left of the equation contents, you can do something like this:

    .equation { margin-top: 20px; width: 300px; margin-bottom: 20px; } .equation-contents { float: right; }

    .equation .title { margin-top: 0; float: left; margin-right: 200px; }

    .equation .title b { font-weight: normal; }

    .equation-break { clear: both; }

    Modified: html/formal.xsl,1.20 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added a chunker.output.quiet top-level parameter so that the chunker can be made quiet by default

    Modified: html/chunker.xsl,1.26 - Norman Walsh

  • Added support for link, olink, and xref within OO Classsynopsis and children. (Because DocBook NG/5 allows it).

    Modified: fo/synop.xsl,1.15; html/synop.xsl,1.19 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • New parameter: id.warnings. If non-zero, warnings are generated for titled objects that don't have titles. True by default; I wonder if this will be too aggressive?

    Modified: html/biblio.xsl,1.25; html/component.xsl,1.27; html/division.xsl,1.11; html/formal.xsl,1.19; html/glossary.xsl,1.20; html/html.xsl,1.13; html/index.xsl,1.16; html/param.ent,1.88; html/param.xweb,1.97; html/refentry.xsl,1.22; html/sections.xsl,1.30; params/id.warnings.xml,1.1 - Norman Walsh

  • If the keep.relative.image.uris parameter is true, don't use the absolute URI (as calculated from xml:base) in the img src attribute, us the value the author specified. Note that we still have to calculate the absolute filename for use in the image intrinsics extension.

    Modified: html/graphics.xsl,1.56 - Norman Walsh

  • Support date as an inline

    Modified: fo/inline.xsl,1.43; html/inline.xsl,1.46 - Norman Walsh

  • Added new parameter keep.relative.image.uris

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.91; fo/param.xweb,1.104; html/param.ent,1.87; html/param.xweb,1.96; params/keep.relative.image.uris.xml,1.1 - Norman Walsh

  • Added two new parameters for handling of multi-term varlistentry elements:

    variablelist.term.break.after: When the variablelist.term.break.after is non-zero, it will generate a line break after each term multi-term varlistentry.

    variablelist.term.separator: When a varlistentry contains multiple term elements, the string specified in the value of the variablelist.term.separator parameter is placed after each term except the last. The default is ", " (a comma followed by a space). To suppress rendering of the separator, set the value of variablelist.term.separator to the empty string ("").

    These parameters are primarily intended to be useful if you have multi-term varlistentries that have long terms.

    Closes #1306676. Thanks to Sam Steingold for providing an example "lots of long terms" doc that demonstrated the value of having these options.

    Also, added normalize-space() call to processing of each term.

    This change affects all output formats (HTML, PDF, manpages). The default behavior should pretty much remain the same as before, but it is possible (as always) that the change may introduce some new bugginess.

  • Added "wrapper-name" param to inline.charseq named template, enabling it to output inlines other than just "span". Acronym and Abbrev templates now use inline.charseq to output HTML "acronym" and "abbr" elements (instead of "span"). Closes #1305468. Thanks to Sam Steingold for suggesting the change.

    Modified: html/inline.xsl,1.45 - Michael(tm) Smith

Manpages

The following changes have been made to the manpages code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Added the following params:

    - man.indent.width (string-valued) - man.indent.refsect (boolean) - man.indent.blurbs (boolean) - man.indent.lists (boolean) - man.indent.verbatims (boolean)

    Note that in earlier snapshots, man.indent.width was named man.indentation.default.value and the boolean params had names like man.indentation.*.adjust. Also the man.indent.blurbs param was called man.indentation.authors.adjust (or something).

    The behavior now is: If the value of a particular man.indent.* boolean param is non-zero, the corresponding contents (refsect*, list items, authorblurb/personblurb, vervatims) are displayed with a left margin indented by a width equal to the value of man.indent.width.

    Modified: params/man.indent.blurbs.xml,1.1; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.74; manpages/info.xsl,1.20; manpages/lists.xsl,1.30; manpages/other.xsl,1.20; manpages/param.ent,1.22; manpages/param.xweb,1.24; manpages/refentry.xsl,1.14; params/man.indent.lists.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.refsect.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.verbatims.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.width.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.table.footnotes.divider param.

    In each table that contains footenotes, the string specified by the man.table.footnotes.divider parameter is output before the list of footnotes for the table.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.73; manpages/links.xsl,1.6; manpages/param.ent,1.21; manpages/param.xweb,1.23; params/man.table.footnotes.divider.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added the man.output.in.separate.dir, man.output.base.dir, and man.output.subdirs.enabled parameters.

    The man.output.base.dir parameter specifies the base directory into which man-page files are output. The man.output.subdirs.enabled parameter controls whether the files are output in subdirectories within the base directory.

    The values of the man.output.base.dir and man.output.subdirs.enabled parameters are used only if the value of man.output.in.separate.dir parameter is non-zero. If the value of man.output.in.separate.dir is zero, man-page files are not output in a separate directory.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.72; manpages/param.ent,1.20; manpages/param.xweb,1.22; params/man.output.base.dir.xml,1.1; params/man.output.in.separate.dir.xml,1.1; params/man.output.subdirs.enabled.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.font.table.headings and man.font.table.title params, for controlling font in table headings and titles.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.71; manpages/param.ent,1.19; manpages/param.xweb,1.21; params/man.font.table.headings.xml,1.1; params/man.font.table.title.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.font.funcsynopsisinfo and man.font.funcprototype params, for specifying the roff font (for example, BI, B, I) for funcsynopsisinfo and funcprototype output.

    Modified: manpages/block.xsl,1.19; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.69; manpages/param.ent,1.18; manpages/param.xweb,1.20; manpages/synop.xsl,1.29; manpages/table.xsl,1.21; params/man.font.funcprototype.xml,1.1; params/man.font.funcsynopsisinfo.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.segtitle.suppress param.

    If the value of man.segtitle.suppress is non-zero, then display of segtitle contents is suppressed in output.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.68; manpages/param.ent,1.17; manpages/param.xweb,1.19; params/man.segtitle.suppress.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.output.manifest.enabled and man.output.manifest.filename params.

    If man.output.manifest.enabled is non-zero, a list of filenames for man pages generated by the stylesheet transformation is written to the file named by man.output.manifest.filename

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.67; manpages/other.xsl,1.19; manpages/param.ent,1.16; manpages/param.xweb,1.18; params/man.output.manifest.enabled.xml,1.1; params/man.output.manifest.filename.xml,1.1; tools/make/Makefile.DocBook,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added refentry.meta.get.quietly param.

    If zero (the default), notes and warnings about "missing" markup are generated during gathering of refentry metadata. If non-zero, the metadata is gathered "quietly" -- that is, the notes and warnings are suppressed.

    NOTE: If you are processing a large amount of refentry content, you may be able to speed up processing significantly by setting a non-zero value for refentry.meta.get.quietly.

    Modified: common/refentry.xsl,1.17; manpages/param.ent,1.15; manpages/param.xweb,1.17; params/refentry.meta.get.quietly.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Changed names of all boolean indentation params to man.indent.* Also discarded individual man.indent.*.value params and switched to just using a common man.indent.width param (3n by default).

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.66; manpages/info.xsl,1.19; manpages/lists.xsl,1.29; manpages/other.xsl,1.18; manpages/refentry.xsl,1.13 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added boolean man.output.in.separate.dir param, to control whether or not man files are output in separate directory.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.65; manpages/utility.xsl,1.14 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added options for controlling indentation of verbatim output. Controlled through the man.indentation.verbatims.adjust and man.indentation.verbatims.value params. Closes #1242997

    Modified: manpages/block.xsl,1.15; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.64 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added options for controlling indentation in lists and in *blurb output in the AUTHORS section. Controlled through the man.indentation.lists.adjust, man.indentation.lists.value, man.indentation.authors.adjust, and man.indentation.authors.value parameters. Default is 3 characters (instead of the roff default of 8 characters). Closes #1449369.

    Also, removed the indent that was being set on informalexample outuput. I will instead add an option for indenting verbatims, which I think is what the informalexample indent was intended for originally.

    Modified: manpages/block.xsl,1.14; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.63; manpages/info.xsl,1.18; manpages/lists.xsl,1.28 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Changed line-spacing call before synopfragment to use ".sp -1n" ("n" units specified) instead of plain ".sp -1"

    Modified: manpages/synop.xsl,1.28 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for writing man files into a specific output directory and into appropriate subdirectories within that output directory. Controlled through the man.base.dir parameter (similar to the base.dir support in the HTML stylesheet) and the man.subdirs.enabled parameter, which automatically determines the name of an appropriate subdir (for example, man/man7, man/man1, etc.) based on the section number/manvolnum of the source Refentry.

    Closes #1255036 and #1170317. Thanks to Denis Bradford for the original feature request, and to Costin Stroie for submitting a patch that was very helpful in implementing the support.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.62; manpages/utility.xsl,1.13 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Refined XPath statements and notification messages for refentry metadata handling.

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.59; common/refentry.xsl,1.14; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.61; manpages/other.xsl,1.17 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for copyright and legalnotice. The manpages stylesheets now output a COPYRIGHT section, after the AUTHORS section, if a copyright or legalnotice is found in the source. The section contains the copyright contents followed by the legalnotice contents. Closes #1450209.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.59; manpages/info.xsl,1.17 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Drastically reworked all of the XPath expressions used in refentry metadata gathering -- completely removed $parentinfo and turned $info into a set of nodes that includes the *info contents of the Refentry plus the *info contents all all of its ancestor elements. The basic XPath expression now used throughout is (using the example of checking for a date):

    (($info[//date])[last()]/date)[1].

    That selects the "last" *info/date date in document order -- that is, the one eitther on the Refentry itself or on the closest ancestor to the Refentry.

    It's likely this change may break some things; may need to pick up some pieces later.

    Also, changed the default value for the man.th.extra2.max.length from 40 to 30.

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.58; common/refentry.xsl,1.7; params/man.th.extra2.max.length.xml,1.2; params/refentry.date.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.manual.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.source.name.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.version.profile.xml,1.2; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.58; manpages/other.xsl,1.15 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for DocBook 5 namespace-stripping in manpages stylesheet. Closes request #1210692.

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.56; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.57 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Fixed handling of table footnotes. With this checkin, the table support in the manpages stylesheet is now basically feature complete. So this change closes request #619532, "No support for tables" -- the oldest currently open manpages feature request, submitted by Ben Secrest (blsecres) on 2002-10-07. Congratulations to me [patting myself on the back].

    Modified: manpages/block.xsl,1.11; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.55; manpages/table.xsl,1.15 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added handling for table titles. Also fixed handling of nested tables; nest tables are now "extracted" and displayed just after their parent tables.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.54; manpages/table.xsl,1.14 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added option for turning off bold formatting in Funcsynopsis. Boldface formatting in function synopsis is mandated in the man(7) man page and is used almost universally in existing man pages. Despite that, it really does look like crap to have an entire Funcsynopsis output in bold, so I added params for turning off the bold formatting and/or replacing it with a different roff special font (e.g., "RI" for alternating roman/italic instead of the default "BI" for alternating bold/italic). The new params are "man.funcprototype.font" and "man.funcsynopsisinfo.font". To be documented later.

    Closes #1452247. Thanks to Joe Orton for the feature request.

    Modified: params/man.string.subst.map.xml,1.16; manpages/block.xsl,1.10; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.51; manpages/inline.xsl,1.16; manpages/synop.xsl,1.27 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Use AUTHORS instead of AUTHOR if we have multiple people to attribute. Also, fixed checking such that we generate author section even if we don't have an author (as long as there is at least one other person/entity we can put in the section). Also adjusted assembly of content for Author metainfo field such that we now not only use author, but try to find a "best match" if we can't find an author name to put there.

    Closes #1233592. Thanks to Sam Steingold for the request.

    Modified: manpages/info.xsl,1.12 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Changes for request #1243027, "Impove handling of AUTHOR section." This adds support for Collab, Corpauthor, Corpcredt, Orgname, Publishername, and Publisher. Also adds support for output of Affiliation and its children, and support for using gentext strings for auto-attributing roles (Author, Editor, Publisher, Translator, etc.). Also did a lot of code cleanup and modularization of all the AUTHOR handling code. And fixed a bug that was causing Author info to not be picked up correctly for metainfo comment we embed in man-page source.

    Modified: manpages/info.xsl,1.11 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Support bold output for "emphasis remap='B'". (because Eric Raymond's doclifter(1) tool converts groff source marked up with ".B" request or "\fB" escapes to DocBook "emphasis remap='B'".)

    Modified: manpages/inline.xsl,1.14 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for Segmentedlist. Details: Output is tabular, with no option for "list" type output. Output for Segtitle elements can be supressed by setting man.segtitle.suppress. If Segtitle content is output, it is rendered in italic type (not bold because not all terminals support bold and so italic ensures the stand out on those terminals). Extra space (.sp line) at end of table code ensures that it gets handled correctly in the case where its source is the child of a Para. Closes feature-request #1400097. Thanks to Daniel Leidert for the patch and push, and to Alastair Rankine for filing the original feature request.

    Modified: manpages/lists.xsl,1.23; manpages/utility.xsl,1.10 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Improved handling or Author/Editor/Othercredit.

    Reworked content of (non-visible) comment added at top of each page (metadata stuff).

    Added support for generating a manifest file (useful for cleaning up after builds, etc.)

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.46; manpages/info.xsl,1.9; manpages/other.xsl,1.12; manpages/utility.xsl,1.6 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added two new parameters for handling of multi-term varlistentry elements:

    variablelist.term.break.after: When the variablelist.term.break.after is non-zero, it will generate a line break after each term multi-term varlistentry.

    variablelist.term.separator: When a varlistentry contains multiple term elements, the string specified in the value of the variablelist.term.separator parameter is placed after each term except the last. The default is ", " (a comma followed by a space). To suppress rendering of the separator, set the value of variablelist.term.separator to the empty string ("").

    These parameters are primarily intended to be useful if you have multi-term varlistentries that have long terms.

    Closes #1306676. Thanks to Sam Steingold for providing an example "lots of long terms" doc that demonstrated the value of having these options.

    Also, added normalize-space() call to processing of each term.

    This change affects all output formats (HTML, PDF, manpages). The default behavior should pretty much remain the same as before, but it is possible (as always) that the change may introduce some new bugginess.

Params

The following changes have been made to the params code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • New parameters to set header/footer table minimum height.

    Modified: params/footer.table.height.xml,1.1; params/header.table.height.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Support multiple indexing methods for different languages.

    Modified: params/index.method.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Remove qandaset and qandadiv from generate.toc for fo output because formerly it wasn't working, but now it is and the default behavior should stay the same.

    Modified: params/generate.toc.xml,1.8 - Robert Stayton

  • add support for page number references to link element too.

    Modified: params/insert.link.page.number.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Add support for more characters to hyphen on when ulink.hyphenate is turned on.

    Modified: params/ulink.hyphenate.chars.xml,1.1; params/ulink.hyphenate.xml,1.3 - Robert Stayton

  • New attribute-set to format biblioentry and bibliomixed.

    Modified: params/biblioentry.properties.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Added new parameter chunk.tocs.and.lots.has.title which controls presence of title in a separate chunk with ToC/LoT. Disabling title can be very useful if you are generating frameset output (well, yes those frames, but some customers really want them ;-).

    Modified: html/chunk-code.xsl,1.15; html/param.ent,1.93; html/param.xweb,1.102; params/chunk.tocs.and.lots.has.title.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Added new attribute set toc.line.properties for controlling appearance of lines in ToC/LoT

    Modified: params/toc.line.properties.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Allow table footnotes to have different properties from regular footnotes.

    Modified: params/table.footnote.properties.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Set properties for pgwide="1" objects.

    Modified: params/pgwide.properties.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Added the autotoc.label.in.hyperlink param.

    If the value of autotoc.label.in.hyperlink is non-zero, labels are included in hyperlinked titles in the TOC. If it is instead zero, labels are still displayed prior to the hyperlinked titles, but are not hyperlinked along with the titles.

    Closes patch #1065868. Thanks to anatoly techtonik for the patch.

    Modified: html/autotoc.xsl,1.36; html/param.ent,1.92; html/param.xweb,1.101; params/autotoc.label.in.hyperlink.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added two new params: html.head.legalnotice.link.types and html.head.legalnotice.link.multiple.

    If the value of the generate.legalnotice.link is non-zero, then the stylesheet generates (in the head section of the HTML source) either a single HTML link element or, if the value of the html.head.legalnotice.link.multiple is non-zero, one link element for each link type specified. Each link has the following attributes:

    - a rel attribute whose value is derived from the value of html.head.legalnotice.link.types

    - an href attribute whose value is set to the URL of the file containing the legalnotice

    - a title attribute whose value is set to the title of the corresponding legalnotice (or a title programatically determined by the stylesheet)

    For example:

    <link rel="copyright" href="ln-id2524073.html" title="Legal Notice">

    Closes #1476450. Thanks to Sam Steingold.

    Modified: html/chunk-common.xsl,1.45; html/param.ent,1.91; html/param.xweb,1.100; params/generate.legalnotice.link.xml,1.4; params/html.head.legalnotice.link.multiple.xml,1.1; params/html.head.legalnotice.link.types.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added the following params:

    - man.indent.width (string-valued) - man.indent.refsect (boolean) - man.indent.blurbs (boolean) - man.indent.lists (boolean) - man.indent.verbatims (boolean)

    Note that in earlier snapshots, man.indent.width was named man.indentation.default.value and the boolean params had names like man.indentation.*.adjust. Also the man.indent.blurbs param was called man.indentation.authors.adjust (or something).

    The behavior now is: If the value of a particular man.indent.* boolean param is non-zero, the corresponding contents (refsect*, list items, authorblurb/personblurb, vervatims) are displayed with a left margin indented by a width equal to the value of man.indent.width.

    Modified: params/man.indent.blurbs.xml,1.1; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.74; manpages/info.xsl,1.20; manpages/lists.xsl,1.30; manpages/other.xsl,1.20; manpages/param.ent,1.22; manpages/param.xweb,1.24; manpages/refentry.xsl,1.14; params/man.indent.lists.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.refsect.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.verbatims.xml,1.1; params/man.indent.width.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.table.footnotes.divider param.

    In each table that contains footenotes, the string specified by the man.table.footnotes.divider parameter is output before the list of footnotes for the table.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.73; manpages/links.xsl,1.6; manpages/param.ent,1.21; manpages/param.xweb,1.23; params/man.table.footnotes.divider.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added the man.output.in.separate.dir, man.output.base.dir, and man.output.subdirs.enabled parameters.

    The man.output.base.dir parameter specifies the base directory into which man-page files are output. The man.output.subdirs.enabled parameter controls whether the files are output in subdirectories within the base directory.

    The values of the man.output.base.dir and man.output.subdirs.enabled parameters are used only if the value of man.output.in.separate.dir parameter is non-zero. If the value of man.output.in.separate.dir is zero, man-page files are not output in a separate directory.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.72; manpages/param.ent,1.20; manpages/param.xweb,1.22; params/man.output.base.dir.xml,1.1; params/man.output.in.separate.dir.xml,1.1; params/man.output.subdirs.enabled.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.font.table.headings and man.font.table.title params, for controlling font in table headings and titles.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.71; manpages/param.ent,1.19; manpages/param.xweb,1.21; params/man.font.table.headings.xml,1.1; params/man.font.table.title.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.font.funcsynopsisinfo and man.font.funcprototype params, for specifying the roff font (for example, BI, B, I) for funcsynopsisinfo and funcprototype output.

    Modified: manpages/block.xsl,1.19; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.69; manpages/param.ent,1.18; manpages/param.xweb,1.20; manpages/synop.xsl,1.29; manpages/table.xsl,1.21; params/man.font.funcprototype.xml,1.1; params/man.font.funcsynopsisinfo.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Changed to select="0" in refclass.suppress (instead of ..>0</..)

    Modified: params/refclass.suppress.xml,1.3 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.segtitle.suppress param.

    If the value of man.segtitle.suppress is non-zero, then display of segtitle contents is suppressed in output.

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.68; manpages/param.ent,1.17; manpages/param.xweb,1.19; params/man.segtitle.suppress.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added man.output.manifest.enabled and man.output.manifest.filename params.

    If man.output.manifest.enabled is non-zero, a list of filenames for man pages generated by the stylesheet transformation is written to the file named by man.output.manifest.filename

    Modified: manpages/docbook.xsl,1.67; manpages/other.xsl,1.19; manpages/param.ent,1.16; manpages/param.xweb,1.18; params/man.output.manifest.enabled.xml,1.1; params/man.output.manifest.filename.xml,1.1; tools/make/Makefile.DocBook,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added refclass.suppress param.

    If the value of refclass.suppress is non-zero, then display refclass contents is suppressed in output. Affects HTML and FO output only.

    Modified: fo/param.ent,1.93; fo/param.xweb,1.106; html/param.ent,1.90; html/param.xweb,1.99; params/refclass.suppress.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added refentry.meta.get.quietly param.

    If zero (the default), notes and warnings about "missing" markup are generated during gathering of refentry metadata. If non-zero, the metadata is gathered "quietly" -- that is, the notes and warnings are suppressed.

    NOTE: If you are processing a large amount of refentry content, you may be able to speed up processing significantly by setting a non-zero value for refentry.meta.get.quietly.

    Modified: common/refentry.xsl,1.17; manpages/param.ent,1.15; manpages/param.xweb,1.17; params/refentry.meta.get.quietly.xml,1.1 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added support for "software" and "sectdesc" class values on refmiscinfo; "software" is treated identically to "source", and "setdesc" is treated identically to "manual".

    Modified: common/refentry.xsl,1.10; params/man.th.extra2.max.length.xml,1.3; params/refentry.source.name.profile.xml,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Drastically reworked all of the XPath expressions used in refentry metadata gathering -- completely removed $parentinfo and turned $info into a set of nodes that includes the *info contents of the Refentry plus the *info contents all all of its ancestor elements. The basic XPath expression now used throughout is (using the example of checking for a date):

    (($info[//date])[last()]/date)[1].

    That selects the "last" *info/date date in document order -- that is, the one eitther on the Refentry itself or on the closest ancestor to the Refentry.

    It's likely this change may break some things; may need to pick up some pieces later.

    Also, changed the default value for the man.th.extra2.max.length from 40 to 30.

    Modified: common/common.xsl,1.58; common/refentry.xsl,1.7; params/man.th.extra2.max.length.xml,1.2; params/refentry.date.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.manual.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.source.name.profile.xml,1.2; params/refentry.version.profile.xml,1.2; manpages/docbook.xsl,1.58; manpages/other.xsl,1.15 - Michael(tm) Smith

  • Added option for turning off bold formatting in Funcsynopsis. Boldface formatting in function synopsis is mandated in the man(7) man page and is used almost universally in existing man pages. Despite that, it really does look like crap to have an entire Funcsynopsis output in bold, so I added params for turning off the bold formatting and/or replacing it with a different roff special font (e.g., "RI" for alternating roman/italic instead of the default "BI" for alternating bold/italic). The new params are "man.funcprototype.font" and "man.funcsynopsisinfo.font". To be documented later.

    Closes #1452247. Thanks to Joe Orton for the feature request.

  • fop.extensions now only for FOP version 0.20.5 and earlier.

    Modified: params/fop.extensions.xml,1.4 - Robert Stayton

  • Support for fop1 different from fop 0.20.5 and earlier.

    Modified: params/fop1.extensions.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Reset default value to empty string so template uses gentext first, then the parameter value if not empty.

    Modified: params/index.number.separator.xml,1.2; params/index.range.separator.xml,1.2; params/index.term.separator.xml,1.2 - Robert Stayton

  • New parameter: id.warnings. If non-zero, warnings are generated for titled objects that don't have titles. True by default; I wonder if this will be too aggressive?

  • Added parameters to localize punctuation in indexes.

    Modified: params/index.number.separator.xml,1.1; params/index.range.separator.xml,1.1; params/index.term.separator.xml,1.1 - Robert Stayton

  • Added two new parameters for handling of multi-term varlistentry elements:

    variablelist.term.break.after: When the variablelist.term.break.after is non-zero, it will generate a line break after each term multi-term varlistentry.

    variablelist.term.separator: When a varlistentry contains multiple term elements, the string specified in the value of the variablelist.term.separator parameter is placed after each term except the last. The default is ", " (a comma followed by a space). To suppress rendering of the separator, set the value of variablelist.term.separator to the empty string ("").

    These parameters are primarily intended to be useful if you have multi-term varlistentries that have long terms.

    Closes #1306676. Thanks to Sam Steingold for providing an example "lots of long terms" doc that demonstrated the value of having these options.

    Also, added normalize-space() call to processing of each term.

    This change affects all output formats (HTML, PDF, manpages). The default behavior should pretty much remain the same as before, but it is possible (as always) that the change may introduce some new bugginess.

  • Convert 'no' to string in default value.

    Modified: params/olink.doctitle.xml,1.4 - Robert Stayton

  • Implemented RFE #1292615.

    Added bunch of new parameters (attribute sets) that affect list presentation: list.block.properties, itemizedlist.properties, orderedlist.properties, itemizedlist.label.properties and orderedlist.label.properties. Default behaviour of stylesheets has not been changed but further customizations will be much more easier.

    Modified: fo/lists.xsl,1.61; fo/param.ent,1.87; fo/param.xweb,1.98; params/itemizedlist.label.properties.xml,1.1; params/itemizedlist.properties.xml,1.1; params/list.block.properties.xml,1.1; params/orderedlist.label.properties.xml,1.1; params/orderedlist.properties.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Implemented RFE #1242092.

    You can enable crop marks in your document by setting crop.marks=1 and xep.extensions=1. Appearance of crop marks can be controlled by parameters crop.mark.bleed (6pt), crop.mark.offset (24pt) and crop.mark.width (0.5pt).

    Also there is new named template called user-xep-pis. You can overwrite it in order to produce some PIs that can control XEP as described in http://www.renderx.com/reference.html#Output_Formats

    Modified: fo/docbook.xsl,1.36; fo/param.ent,1.86; fo/param.xweb,1.97; fo/xep.xsl,1.23; params/crop.mark.bleed.xml,1.1; params/crop.mark.offset.xml,1.1; params/crop.mark.width.xml,1.1; params/crop.marks.xml,1.1 - Jirka Kosek

  • Changed short descriptions in doc for *autolabel* params to match new autolabel behavior.

    Modified: params/appendix.autolabel.xml,1.5; params/chapter.autolabel.xml,1.4; params/part.autolabel.xml,1.5; params/preface.autolabel.xml,1.4 - Michael(tm) Smith

Profiling

The following changes have been made to the profiling code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Profiling now works together with namespace stripping (V5 documents). Namespace striping should work with all stylesheets named profile-, even if they are not supporting namespace stripping in a non-profiling variant.

    Modified: profiling/profile-mode.xsl,1.4; profiling/xsl2profile.xsl,1.7 - Jirka Kosek

  • Moved profiling stage out of templates. This make possible to reuse profiled content by several templates and still maintaing node indentity (needed for example for HTML Help where content is processed multiple times).

    I don't know why this was not on the top level before. Maybe some XSLT processors choked on it. I hope this will be OK now.

    Modified: profiling/xsl2profile.xsl,1.5 - Jirka Kosek

Tools

The following changes have been made to the tools code since the 1.69.1 release.

  • Moved Makefile.DocBook from contrib module to xsl module.

Release 1.69.1

This release is a minor bug-fix update to the 1.69.0 release. Along with bug fixes, it includes one configuration-parameter change: The default value of the annotation.support parameter is now 0 (off). The reason for that change is that there have been reports that annotation handling is causing a significant performance degradation in processing of large documents with xsltproc.

Release 1.69.0

The release includes major feature changes, particularly in the manpages stylesheets, as well as a large number of bug fixes.

As with all DocBook Project dot zero releases, this is an experimental release .

Common

  • This release adds localizations for the following languages: Albanian, Amharic, Azerbaijani, Hindi, Irish (Gaelic), Gujarati, Kannada, Mongolian, Oriya, Punjabi, Tagalog, Tamil, and Welsh.

  • Added support for specifying number format for auto labels for chapter, appendix, part, and preface. Contolled with the appendix.autolabel, chapter.autolabel, part.autolabel, and preface.autolabel parameters.

  • Added basic support for biblioref cross referencing.

  • Added support for align on caption in mediaobject.

  • Added support for processing documents that use the DocBook V5 namespace.

  • Added support for termdef and mathphrase.

  • EXPERIMENTAL: Incorporated the Slides and Website stylesheets into the DocBook XSL stylesheets package. So, for example, Website documents can now be processed using the following URI for the driver Website tabular.xsl file:

    http://docs.atricore.com/docbook/release/xsl/current/website/tabular.xsl
  • A procedure without a title is now treated as an informal procedure (meaning that it is not added to any generated list of procedures and has no affect on numbering of generated labels for other procedures).

  • docname is no longer added to olink when pointing to a root element.

  • Added support for generation of choice separator in inline simplelist. This enables auto-generation of an appropriate localized choice separator (for example, and or or) before the final item in an inline simplelist.

    To indicate that you want a choice separator generated for a particular list, you need to put a processing instruction (PI) of the form <?dbchoice choice="foo"?> as a child of the list. For example:

      <para>Choose from
      ONE and ONLY ONE of the following: 
      <simplelist type="inline">
      <?dbchoice choice="or" ?>
      <member>A</member>
      <member>B</member>
      <member>C</member>.</simplelist></para>

    Output (for English):

    Choose from ONE and only ONE of the following choices: A, B, or C.

    As a temporary workaround for the fact that most of the DocBook non-English locale files don't have a localization for the word or, you can put in a literal string to be used; example for French: <?dbchoice choice="ou">. That is, use ou instead of or.

FO

  • Added content-type property to external-graphic element, based on imagedata format attribute.

  • Added support for generating <rx:meta-field creator="$VERSION"/> field for XEP output. This makes the DocBook XSL stylesheet version information available through the Document Properties menu in Acrobat Reader and other PDF viewers.

  • Trademark symbol handling made consistent with handling of same in HTML stylesheets. Prior to this change, if you processed a document that contained no value for the class attribute on the trademark element, the HTML stylesheets would default to rendering a superscript TM symbol after the trademark contents, but the FO stylesheets would render nothing.

  • Added support for generating XEP bookmarks for refentry.

  • Added support for HTML markup table border attribute, applied to each table cell.

  • The table.width template can now sum column specs if none use % or *.

  • Added fox:destination extension inside fox:outline to support linking to internal destinations.

  • Added support for customizing abstract with property sets. Controlled with the abstract.properties and abstract.title.properties parameters.

  • Add footnotes in table title to table footnote set, and add support for table footnotes to HTML table markup.

  • Added support for title in glosslist.

  • Added support for itemizedlist symbol none.

man

This release closes out 44 manpages stylesheet bug reports and feature requests. It adds more than 35 new configuration parameters for controlling aspects of man-page output -- including hyphenation and justification, handling of links, conversion of Unicode characters, and contents of man-page headers and footers.

  • New options for globally disabling/enabling hyphenation and justification: man.justify and man.hyphenate.

    Note that the default for the both of those is zero (off), because justified text looks good only when it is also hyphenated; to quote the Hyphenation node from the groff info page:

    Since the odds are not great for finding a set of words, for every output line, which fit nicely on a line without inserting excessive amounts of space between words, `gtroff' hyphenates words so that it can justify lines without inserting too much space between words.

    The problem is that groff can end up hyphenating a lot of things that you don't want hyphenated (variable names and command names, for example). Keeping both justification and hyphenation disabled ensures that hyphens won't get inserted where you don't want to them, and you don't end up with lines containing excessive amounts of space between words. These default settings run counter to how most existing man pages are formatted. But there are some notable exceptions, such as the perl man pages.

  • Added parameters for controlling hyphenation of computer inlines, filenames, and URLs. By default, even when hyphenation is enabled (globally), hyphenation is now suppressed for "computer inlines" (currently, just classname, constant, envar, errorcode, option, replaceable, userinput, type, and varname, and for filenames, and for URLs from link. It can be (re)enabled using the man.hyphenate.computer.inlines, man.hyphenate.filenames, and man.hyphenate.urls parameters.

  • Implemented a new system for replacing Unicode characters. There are two parts to the new system: a string substitution map for doing essential replacements, and a character map that can optionally be disabled and enabled.

    The new system fixes all open bugs that had to do with literal Unicode numbered entities such as &#8220; and &#8221; showing up in output, and greatly expands the ability of the stylesheets to generate good roff equivalents for Unicode symbols and special characters.

    Here are some details...

    The previous manpages mechanism for replacing Unicode symbols and special characters with roff equivalents (the replace-entities template) was not scalable and not complete. The mechanism handled a somewhat arbitrary selection of less than 20 or so Unicode characters. But there are potentially more than 800 Unicode special characters that have some groff equivalent they can be mapped to. And there are about 34 symbols in the Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) block alone. Users might reasonably expect that if they include any of those Latin-1 characters in their DocBook source documents, they will get correctly converted to known roff equivalents in output.

    In addition to those common symbols, certain users may have a need to use symbols from other Unicode blocks. Say, somebody who is documenting an application related to math might need to use a bunch of symbols from the Mathematical Operators Unicode block (there are about 65 characters in that block that have reasonable roff equivalents). Or somebody else might really like Dingbats -- such as the checkmark character -- and so might use a bunch of things from the Dingbat block (141 characters in that that have roff equivalents or that can at least be degraded somewhat gracefully into roff).

    So, the old replace-entities mechanism was replaced with a completely different mechanism that is based on use of two maps: a substitution map and a character map (the latter in a format compliant with the XSLT 2.0 spec and therefore completely forward compatible with XSLT 2.0).

    The substitution map is controlled through the man.string.subst.map parameter, and is used to replace things like the backslash character (which needs special handling to prevent it from being interpreted as a roff escape). The substitution map cannot be disabled, because disabling it will cause the output to be broken. However, you can add to it and change it if needed.

    The character map mechanism, on the other hand, can be completely disabled. It is enabled by default, and, by default, does replacement of all Latin-1 symbols, along with most special spaces, dashes, and quotes (about 75 characters by default). Also, you can optionally enable a full character map that provides support for converting all 800 or so of the characters that have some reasonable groff equivalent.

    The character-map mechanism is controlled through the following parameters:

    man.charmap.enabled

    turns character-map support on/off

    man.charmap.use.subset

    specifies that a subset of the character map is used instead of the full map

    man.charmap.subset.profile

    specifies profile of character-map subset

    man.charmap.uri

    specifies an alternate character map to use instead of the standard character map provided in the distribution

  • Implemented out-of-line handling of display of URLs for links (currently, only for ulink). This gives you three choices for handling of links:

    1. Number and list links. Each link is numbered inline, with a number in square brackets preceding the link contents, and a numbered list of all links is added to the end of the document.

    2. Only list links. Links are not numbered, but an (unnumbered) list of links is added to the end of the document.

    3. Suppress links. Don't number links and don't add any list of links to the end of the document.

    You can also choose whether links should be underlined. The default is the works -- list, number, and underline links. You can use the man.links.list.enabled, man.links.are.numbered, and man.links.are.underlined parameters to change the defaults. The default heading for the link list is REFERENCES. You can be change that using the man.links.list.heading parameter.

  • Changed default output encoding to UTF-8. This does not mean that man pages are output in raw UTF-8, because the character map is applied before final output, causing all UTF-8 characters covered in the map to be converted to roff equivalents.

  • Added support for processing refsect3 and formalpara and nested refsection elements, down to any arbitrary level of nesting.

  • Output of the NAME and SYNOPSIS and AUTHOR headings and the headings for admonitions (note, caution, etc.) are no longer hard-coded for English. Instead, headings are generated for those in the correct locale (just as the FO and HTML stylesheets do).

  • Re-worked mechanism for assembling page headers/footers (the contents of the .TH macro title line).

    Here are some details...

    All man pages contain a .TH roff macro whose contents are used for rendering the title line displayed in the header and footer of each page. Here are a couple of examples of real-world man pages that have useful page headers/footers:

      gtk-options(7)    GTK+ User's Manual   gtk-options(7) <-- header
      GTK+ 1.2              2003-10-20       gtk-options(7) <-- footer
    
      svgalib(7)       Svgalib User Manual       svgalib(7) <-- header
      Svgalib 1.4.1      16 December 1999        svgalib(7) <-- footer

    And here are the terms with which the groff_man(7) man page refers to the various parts of the header/footer:

      title(section)  extra3  title(section)  <- header
      extra2          extra1  title(section)  <- footer

    Or, using the names with which the man(7) man page refers to those same fields:

      title(section)  manual  title(section)  <- page header
      source          date    title(section)  <- page footer

    The easiest way to control the contents of those fields is to mark up your refentry content like the following (note that this is a minimal example).

      <refentry>
        <info>
          <date>2003-10-20</date> 1
        </info>
        <refmeta>
          <refentrytitle>gtk-options</refentrytitle> 2
          <manvolnum>7</manvolnum> 3
          <refmiscinfo class="source-name">GTK+</refmiscinfo> 4
          <refmiscinfo class="version">1.2</refmiscinfo> 5
          <refmiscinfo class="manual">GTK+ User's Manual</refmiscinfo> 6
        </refmeta>
        <refnamediv>
          <refname>gtk-options</refname>
          <refpurpose>Standard Command Line Options for GTK+ Programs</refpurpose>
        </refnamediv>
        <refsect1>
          <title>Description</title>
          <para>This manual page describes the command line options, which
          are common to all GTK+ based applications.</para>
        </refsect1>
      </refentry>

    1

    Sets the date part of the header/footer.

    2

    Sets the title part.

    3

    Sets the section part.

    4

    Sets the source name part.

    5

    Sets the version part.

    6

    Sets the manual part.

    Below are explanations of the steps the stylesheets take to attempt to assemble and display good headers and footer. [In the descriptions, note that *info is the refentry info child (whatever its name), and parentinfo is the info child of its parent (again, whatever its name).]

    extra1 field (date)

    Content of the extra1 field is what shows up in the center footer position of each page. The man(7) man page describes it as the date of the last revision.

    To provide this content, if the refentry.date.profile.enabled is non-zero, the stylesheets check the value of refentry.date.profile.

    Otherwise, by default, they check for a date or pubdate not only in the *info contents, but also in the parentinfo contents.

    If a date cannot be found, the stylesheets now automatically generate a localized long format date, ensuring that this field always has content in output.

    However, if for some reason you want to suppress this field, you can do so by setting a non-zero value for man.th.extra1.suppress.

    extra2 field (source)

    On Linux systems and on systems with a modern groff, the content of the extra2 field are what shows up in the left footer position of each page.

    The man(7) man page describes this as the source of the command, and provides the following examples:

    • For binaries, use somwething like: GNU, NET-2, SLS Distribution, MCC Distribution.

    • For system calls, use the version of the kernel that you are currently looking at: Linux 0.99.11.

    • For library calls, use the source of the function: GNU, BSD 4.3, Linux DLL 4.4.1.

    In practice, there are many pages that simply have a version number in the source field. So, it looks like what we have is a two-part field, Name Version, where:

    Name

    product name (e.g., BSD) or org. name (e.g., GNU)

    Version

    version name

    Each part is optional. If the Name is a product name, then the Version is probably the version of the product. Or there may be no Name, in which case, if there is a Version, it is probably the version of the item itself, not the product it is part of. Or, if the Name is an organization name, then there probably will be no Version.

    To provide this content, if the refentry.source.name.profile.enabled and refentry.version.profile.enabled parameter are non-zero, the stylesheets check the value of refentry.source.name.profile refentry.version.profile.

    Otherwise, by default, they check the following places, in the following order:

    1. *info/productnumber
    2. *info/productnumber
    3. refmeta/refmiscinfo[@class = 'version']
    4. parentinfo/productnumber
    5. *info/productname
    6. parentinfo/productname
    7. refmeta/refmiscinfo
    8. [nothing found, so leave it empty]

    extra3 field

    On Linux systems and on systems with a modern groff, the content of the extra3 field are what shows up in the center header position of each page. Some man pages have extra2 content, some don't. If a particular man page has it, it is most often context data about some larger system the documented item belongs to (for example, the name or description of a group of related applications). The stylesheets now check the following places, in the following order, to look for content to add to the extra3 field.

    1. parentinfo/title
    2. parent's title
    3. refmeta/refmiscinfo
    4. [nothing found, so leave it empty]

  • Reworked *info gathering. For each refentry found, the stylesheets now cache its *info content, then check for any valid parent of it that might have metainfo content and cache that, if found; they then then do all further matches against those node-sets (rather than re-selecting the original *info nodes each time they are needed).

  • New option for breaking strings after forward slashes. This enables long URLs and pathnames to be broken across lines. Controlled through man.break.after.slash parameter.

  • Output for servicemark and trademark are now (SM) and (TM). There is a groff "\(tm" escape, but output from that is not acceptable.

  • New option for controlling the length of the title part of the .TH title line. Controlled through the man.th.title.max.length parameter.

  • New option for specifying output encoding of each man page; controlled with man.output.encoding (similar to the HTML chunker.output.encoding parameter).

  • New option for suppressing filename messages when generating output; controlled with man.output.quietly (similar to the HTML chunk.quietly parameter).

  • The text of cross-references to first-level refentry (refsect1, top-level refsection, refnamediv, and refsynopsisdiv) are now capitalized.

  • Cross-references to refnamediv now use the localized NAME title instead of using the first refname child. This makes the output inconsistent with HTML and FO output, but for man-page output, it seems to make better sense to have the NAME. (It may actually make better sense to do it that way in HTML and FO output as well...)

  • Added support for processing funcparams.

  • Removed the space that was being output between funcdef and paramdef; example: was: float rand (void); now: float rand(void)

  • Turned off bold formatting for the type element when it occurs within a funcdef or paramdef

  • Corrected rendering of simplelist. Any <simplelist type="inline" instance is now rendered as a comma-separated list (also with an optional localized and or or before the last item -- see description elsewhere in these release notes). Any simplelist instance whose type is not inline is rendered as a one-column vertical list (ignoring the values of the type and columns attributes if present)

  • Comment added at top of roff source for each page now includes DocBook XSL stylesheets version number (as in the HTML stylesheets)

  • Made change to prevent sticky fonts changes. Now, when the manpages stylesheets encounter node sets that need to be boldfaced or italicized, they put the \fBfoo\fR and \fIbar\fR groff bold/italic instructions separately around each node in the set.

  • synop.xsl: Boldface everything in funcsynopsis output except parameters (which are in ital). The man(7) man page says:

    For functions, the arguments are always specified using italics, even in the SYNOPSIS section, where the rest of the function is specified in bold.

    A look through the contents of the man/man2 directory shows that most (all) existing pages do follow this everything in funcsynopsis bold rule. That means the type content and any punctuation (parens, semicolons, varargs) also must be bolded.

  • Removed code for adding backslashes before periods/dots in roff source, because backslashes in front of periods/dots in roff source are needed only in the very rare case where a period is the very first character in a line, without any space in front of it. A better way to deal with that rare case is for you to add a zero-width space in front of the offending dot(s) in your source

  • Removed special handling of the quote element. That was hard-coded to cause anything marked up with the quote element to be output preceded by two backticks and followed by two apostrophes -- that is, that old-school kludge for generating curly quotes in Emacs and in X-Windows fonts. While Emacs still seems to support that, I don't think X-Windows has for a long time now. And, anyway, it looks (and has always looked) like crap when viewed on a normal tty/console. In addition, it breaks localiztion of quote. By default, quote content is output with localized quotation marks, which, depending on the locale, may or may not be left and right double quotation marks.

  • Changed mappings for left and right single quotation marks. Those had previously been incorrectly mapped to the backtick (&#96;) and apostrophe (&39;) characters (for kludgy reasons -- see above). They are now correctly mapped to the \(oq and \(cq roff escapes. If you want the old (broken) behavior, you need to manually change the mappings for those in the value of the man.string.subst.map parameter.

  • Removed xref.xsl file. Now, of the various cross-reference elements, only the ulink element is handled differently; the rest are handled exactly as the HTML stylesheets handle them, except that no hypertext links are generated. (Because there is no equivalent hypertext mechanism is man pages.)

  • New option for making subheading dividers in generated roff source. The dividers are not visible in the rendered man page; they are just there to make the source readable. Controlled using man.subheading.divider.

  • Fixed many places where too much space was being added between lines.

Release 1.68.1

The release adds localization support for Farsi (thanks to Sina Heshmati) and improved support for the XLink-based DocBook NG db:link element. Other than that, it is a minor bug-fix update to the 1.68.0 release. The main thing it fixes is a build error that caused the XSLT Java extensions to be jarred up with the wrong package structure. Thanks to Jens Stavnstrup for quickly reporting the problem, and to Mauritz Jeanson for investigating and finding the cause.

Release 1.68.0

This release includes some features changes, particularly for FO/PDF output, and a number of bug fixes.

FO

  • Moved footnote properties to attribute-sets.

  • Added support for side floats, margin notes, and custom floats.

  • Added new parameters body.start.indent and body.end.indent to the set.flow.properties template.

  • Added support for xml:id

  • Added support for refdescriptor.

  • Added support for multiple refnamedivs.

  • Added index.entry.properties attribute-set to support customization of index entries.

  • Added set.flow.properties template call to each fo:flow to support customizations entry point.

  • Add support for @floatstyle in figure

  • Moved hardcoded properties for index division titles to the index.div.title.properties attribute-set.

  • Added support for table-layout="auto" for XEP.

  • Added index.div.title.properties attribute-set.

  • $verbose parameter is now passed to most elements.

  • Added refentry to toc in part, as it is permitted by the DocBook schema/DTD.

  • Added backmatter elements and article to toc in part, since they are permitted by the DocBook schema/DTD.

  • Added mode="toc" for simplesect, since it is now permitted in the toc if simplesect.in.toc is set.

  • Moved hard-coded properties to nongraphical.admonintion.properties and graphical.admonition.properties attribute sets.

  • Added support for sidebar-width and float-type processing instructions in sidebar.

  • For tables with HTML markup elements, added support for dbfo bgcolor PI, the attribute-sets named table.properties, informaltable.properties, table.table.properties, and table.cell.padding. Also added support for the templates named table.cell.properties and table.cell.block.properties so that tabstyles can be implemented. Also added support for tables containing only tr instead of tbody with tr.

  • Added new paramater hyphenate.verbatim.characters which can specify characters after which a line break can occur in verbatim environments. This parameter can be used to extend the initial set of characters which contain only space and non-breakable space.

  • Added itemizedlist.label.markup to enable selection of different bullet symbol. Also added several potential bullet characters, commented out by default.

  • Enabled all id's in XEP output for external olinking.

HTML

Images

  • Added new SVG admonition graphics and navigation images.

Release 1.67.2

This release fixes a table bug introduced in the 1.67.1 release.

Release 1.67.1

This release includes a number of bug fixes.

The following lists provide details about API and feature changes.

FO

  • Tables: Inherited cell properties are now passed to the table.cell.properties template so they can be overridden by a customization.

  • Tables: Added support for bgcolor PI on table row element.

  • TOCs: Added new parameter simplesect.in.toc; default value of 0 causes simplesect to be omitted from TOCs; to cause simplesect to be included in TOCs, you must set the value of simplesect.in.toc to 1.Comment from Norm:

    Simplesect elements aren't supposed to appear in the ToC at all... The use case for simplesect is when, for example, every chapter in a book ends with "Exercises" or "For More Information" sections and you don't want those to appear in the ToC.

  • Sections: Reverted change that caused a variable reference to be used in a template match and rewrote code to preserve intended semantics.

  • Lists: Added workaround to prevent "* 0.60 + 1em" garbage in list output from PassiveTeX

  • Moved the literal attributes from component.title to the component.title.properties attribute-set so they can be customized.

  • Lists: Added glossdef's first para to special handling in fo:list-item-body.

HTML

HTML Help

  • Added support for generating windows-1252-encoded output using Saxon; for more details, see the list of XSL Java extensions changes for this release.

man pages

  • Replaced named/numeric character-entity references for non-breaking space with groff equivalent (backslash-tilde).

XSL Java extensions

  • Saxon extensions: Added the Windows1252 class. It extends Saxon 6.5.x with the windows-1252 character set, which is particularly useful when generating HTML Help for Western European Languages (code from Pontus Haglund and contributed to the DocBook community by Sectra AB, Sweden).

    To use:

    1. Make sure that the Saxon 6.5.x jar file and the jar file for the DocBook XSL Java extensions are in your CLASSPATH

    2. Create a DocBook XSL customization layer -- a file named mystylesheet.xsl or whatever -- that, at a minimum, contains the following:

        <xsl:stylesheet
          xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
          version='1.0'>
          <xsl:import href="http://docs.atricore.com/docbook/release/xsl/current/htmlhelp/htmlhelp.xsl"/>
          <xsl:output method="html" encoding="WINDOWS-1252" indent="no"/>
          <xsl:param name="htmlhelp.encoding" select="'WINDOWS-1252'"></xsl:param>
          <xsl:param name="chunker.output.encoding" select="'WINDOWS-1252'"></xsl:param>
          <xsl:param name="saxon.character.representation" select="'native'"></xsl:param>
        </xsl:stylesheet>

      Invoke Saxon with the encoding.windows-1252 Java system property set to com.nwalsh.saxon.Windows1252; for example

        java \
          -Dencoding.windows-1252=com.nwalsh.saxon.Windows1252 \
        com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet \
        mydoc.xml mystylesheet.xsl

      Or, for a more complete "real world" case showing other options you'll typically want to use:

        java \
          -Dencoding.windows-1252=com.nwalsh.saxon.Windows1252 \
          -Djavax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory=org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl \
          -Djavax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory=org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserFactoryImpl \
          -Djavax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory=com.icl.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl \
        com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet \
          -x org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.ResolvingXMLReader \
          -y org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.ResolvingXMLReader \
          -r org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.CatalogResolver \
        mydoc.xml mystylesheet.xsl

      In both cases, the "mystylesheet.xsl" file should be a DocBook customization layer containing the parameters show in step 2.

  • Saxon extensions: Removed Saxon 8 extensions from release package

Release 1.67.0

  • A number of important bug fixes.

  • Added Saxon8 extensions

  • Enabled dbfo table-width on entrytbl in FO output

  • Added support for role=strong on emphasis in FO output

  • Added new FO parameter hyphenate.verbatim that can be used to turn on "intelligent" wrapping of verbatim environments.

  • Replaced all <tt></tt> output with <code></code>

  • Changed admon.graphic.width template to a mode so that different admonitions can have different graphical widths.

  • Deprecated the HTML shade.verbatim parameter (use CSS instead)

  • Wrapped ToC refentrytitle/refname and refpurpose in span with class values. This makes it possible to style them using a CSS stylesheet.

  • Use strong/em instead of b/i in HTML output

  • Added support for converting Emphasis to groff italic and Emphasis role='bold' to bold. Controlled by emphasis.propagates.style param, but not documented yet using litprog system. Will do that next (planning to add some other parameter-controllable options for hyphenation and handling of line spacing).

  • callout.graphics.number.limit.xml param: Changed the default from 10 to 15.

  • verbatim.properties: Added hyphenate=false

  • Saxon and Xalan Text.java extensions: Added support for URIResolver() on insertfile href's

  • Added generated RELEASE-NOTES.txt file.

  • Added INSTALL file (executable file for generating catalog.xml)

  • Removed obsolete tools directory from package

Release 1.66.1

  • A number of important bug fixes.

  • Now xml:base attributes that are generated by an XInclude processor are resolved for image files.

  • Rewrote olink templates to support several new features.

  • Added index.on.type parameter for new type attribute introduced in DocBook 4.3 for indexterms and index. This allows you to create multiple indices containing different categories of entries. For users of 4.2 and earlier, you can use the new parameter index.on.role instead.

  • Added new section.autolabel.max.depth parameter to turn off section numbering below a certain depth. This permits you to number major section levels and leave minor section levels unnumbered.

  • Added footnote.sep.leader.properties attribute set to format the line separating footnotes in printed output.

  • Added parameter img.src.path as a prefix to HTML img src attributes. The prefix is added to whatever path is already generated by the stylesheet for each image file.

  • Added new attribute-sets informalequation.properties, informalexample.properties, informalfigure.properties, and informaltable.properties, so each such element type can be formatted individually if needed.

  • Add component.label.includes.part.label parameter to add any part number to chapter, appendix and other component labels when the label.from.part parameter is nonzero. This permits you to distinguish multiple chapters with the same chapter number in cross references and the TOC.

  • Added chunk.separate.lots parameter for HTML output. This parameter lets you generate separate chunk files for each LOT (list of tables, list of figures, etc.).

  • Added several table features:

    • Added table.table.properties attribute set to add properties to the fo:table element.

    • Added placeholder templates named table.cell.properties and table.cell.block.properties to enable adding properties to any fo:table-cell or the cell's fo:block, respectively. These templates are a start for implementing table styles.

  • Added new attribute set component.title.properties for easy modifications of component's title formatting in FO output.

  • Added Saxon support for an encoding attribute on the textdata element. Added new parameter textdata.default.encoding which specifies encoding when encoding attribute on textdata is missing.

  • Template label.this.section now controls whole section label, not only sub-label which corresponds to particular label. Former behaviour was IMHO bug as it was not usable.

  • Formatting in titleabbrev for TOC and headers is preserved when there are no hotlink elements in the title. Formerly the title showed only the text of the title, no font changes or other markup.

  • Added intial.page.number template to set the initial-page-number property for page sequences in print output. Customizing this template lets you change when page numbering restarts. This is similar to the format.page.number template that lets you change how the page number formatting changes in the output.

  • Added force.page.count template to set the force-page-count property for page sequences in print output. This is similar to the format.page.number template.

  • Sort language for localized index sorting in autoidx-ng.xsl is now taken from document lang, not from system environment.

  • Numbering and formatting of normal and ulink footnotes (if turned on) has been unified. Now ulink footnotes are mixed in with any other footnotes.

  • Added support for renderas attribute in section and sect1 et al. This permits you to render a given section title as if it were a different level.

  • Added support for label attribute in footnote to manually supply the footnote mark.

  • Added support for DocBook 4.3 corpcredit element.

  • Added support for a dbfo keep-together PI for formal objects (table, figure, example, equation, programlisting). That permits a formal object to be kept together if it is not already, or to be broken if it is very long and the default keep-together is not appropriate.

  • For graphics files, made file extension matching case insensitive, and updated the list of graphics extensions.

  • Allow calloutlist to have block content before the first callout

  • Added dbfo-need processing instruction to provide soft page breaks.

  • Added implementation of existing but unused default.image.width parameter for graphics.

  • Support DocBook NG tag inline element.

  • It appears that XEP now supports Unicode characters in bookmarks. There is no further need to strip accents from characters.

  • Make segmentedlist HTML markup more semantic and available to CSS styles.

  • Added user.preroot placeholder template to permit xsl-stylesheet and other PIs and comments to be output before the HTML root element.

  • Non-chunked legalnotice now gets an <a name="id"> element in HTML output so it can be referenced with xref or link.

  • In chunked HTML output, changed link rel="home" to rel="start", and link rel="previous" to rel="prev", per W3C HTML 4.01 spec.

  • Added several patches to htmlhelp from W. Borgert

  • Added Bosnian locale file as common/bs.xml.

Release 1.65.0

  • A number of important bug fixes.

  • Added a workaround to allow these stylesheets to process DocBook NG documents. (It’s a hack that pre-processes the document to strip off the namespace and then uses exsl:node-set to process the result.)

  • Added alternative indexing mechanism which has better internationalization support. New indexing method allows grouping of accented letters like e, é, ë into the same group under letter "e". It can also treat special letters (e.g. "ch") as one character and place them in the correct position (e.g. between "h" and "i" in Czech language).

    In order to use this mechanism you must create customization layer which imports some base stylesheet (like fo/docbook.xsl, html/chunk.xsl) and then includes appropriate stylesheet with new indexing code (fo/autoidx-ng.xsl or html/autoidx-ng.xsl). For example:

    <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
                    version="1.0">
    
    <xsl:import href="http://docs.atricore.com/docbook/release/xsl/current/fo/docbook.xsl"/>
    <xsl:include href="http://docs.atricore.com/docbook/release/xsl/current/fo/autoidx-ng.xsl"/>
    
    </xsl:stylesheet>

    New method is known to work with Saxon and it should also work with xsltproc 1.1.1 and later. Currently supported languages are English, Czech, German, French, Spanish and Danish.

Release 1.64.1

General bug fixes and improvements. Sorry about the failure to produce an updated release notes file for 1.62.0—1.63.2

  • In the course of fixing bug #849787, wrapping Unicode callouts with an appropriate font change in the Xalan extensions, I discovered that the Xalan APIs have changed a bit. So xalan2.jar will work with older Xalan 2 implementations, xalan25.jar works with Xalan 2.5.

Release 1.61.0

Lots of bug fixes and improvements.

  • Initial support for timestamp PI. From now you can use <?dbtimestamp format="Y-m-d H:M:S"?> to get current datetime in your document. Added localization support for datetime PI

  • Added level 6 to test for section depth in section.level template so that section.title.level6.properties will be used for sections that are 6 deep or deeper. This should also cause a h6 to be created in html output.

  • Don't use SVG graphics if use.svg=0

  • Now uses number-and-title-template for sections only if section.autolabel is not zero.

  • Added missing 'english-language-name' attribute to the l10n element, and the missing 'style' attribute to the template element so the current gentext documents will validate.

  • Corrected several references to parameter qanda.defaultlabel that were missing the "$".

  • Now accepts admon.textlabel parameter to turn off Note, Warning, etc. label.

  • FeatReq #684561: support more XEP metadata

  • Added hyphenation support. Added support for coref. Added beginpage support. (does nothing; see TDG).

  • Added support for hyphenation-character, hyphenation-push-character-count, and hyphenation-remain-character-count

  • Added root.properties, ebnf.assignment, and ebnf.statement.terminator

  • Support bgcolor PI in table cells; make sure rowsep and colsep don't have any effect on the last row or column

  • Handle othercredit on titlepage a little better

  • Applied fix from Jeff Beal that fixed the bug that put secondary page numbers on primary entries. Same with tertiary page numbers on secondary entries.

  • Added definition of missing variable collection.

  • Make footnote formatting 'normal' even when it occurs in a context that has special formatting

  • Added warning when glossary.collection is not blank, but it cannot open the specified file.

  • Pick up the frame attribute on table and informaltable.

  • indexdiv/title in non-autogenerated indexes are now picked up.

  • Removed (unused) component.title.properties

  • Move IDs from page-sequences down to titlepage blocks

  • Use proportional-column-width(1) on more tables.

    Use proportional-column-width() for header/footer tables; suppress relative-align when when using FOP

  • Check for glossterm.auto.link when linking firstterms; don't output gl. prefix on glossterm links

  • Generate Part ToCs

  • Support glossary, bibliography, and index in component ToCs.

  • Refactored chunking code so that customization of chunk algorithm and chunk elements is more practical

  • Support textobject/phrase on inlinemediaobject.

  • Support 'start' PI on ordered lists

  • Fixed test of $toc PI to turn on qandaset TOC.

  • Added process.chunk.footnotes to sect2 through 5 to fix bug of missing footnotes when chunk level greater than 1.

  • Added paramater toc.max.depth which controls maximal depth of ToC as requested by PHP-DOC group.

  • Exempted titleabbrev from preamble processing in lists, and fixed variablelist preamble code to use the same syntax as the other lists.

  • Added support for elements between variablelist and first varlistentry since DocBook 4.2 supports that now.

Release 1.60.1

Lots of bug fixes.

  • The format of the titlepage.templates.xml files and the stylesheet that transforms them have been significantly changed. All of the attributes used to control the templates are now namespace qualified. So what used to be:

    <t:titlepage element="article" wrapper="fo:block">

    is now:

    <t:titlepage t:element="article" t:wrapper="fo:block">

    Attributes from other namespaces (including those that are unqualified) are now copied directly through. In practice, this means that the names that used to be fo: qualified:

    <title named-template="component.title"
           param:node="ancestor-or-self::article[1]"
           fo:text-align="center"
           fo:keep-with-next="always"
           fo:font-size="&hsize5;"
           fo:font-weight="bold"
           fo:font-family="{$title.font.family}"/>

    are now unqualified:

    <title t:named-template="component.title"
           param:node="ancestor-or-self::article[1]"
           text-align="center"
           keep-with-next="always"
           font-size="&hsize5;"
           font-weight="bold"
           font-family="{$title.font.family}"/>

    The t:titlepage and t:titlepage-content elements both generate wrappers now. And unqualified attributes on those elements are passed through. This means that you can now make the title font apply to ane entire titlepage and make the entire recto titlepage centered by specifying the font and alignment on the those elements:

    <t:titlepage t:element="article" t:wrapper="fo:block"
                 font-family="{$title.font.family}">
    
      <t:titlepage-content t:side="recto"
                 text-align="center">
  • Support use of titleabbrev in running headers and footers.

  • Added (experimental) xref.with.number.and.title parameter to enable number/title cross references even when the default would be just the number.

  • Generate part ToCs if they're requested.

  • Use proportional-column-width() in header/footer tables.

  • Handle alignment correctly when screenshot wraps a graphic in a figure.

  • Format chapter and appendix cross references consistently.

  • Attempt to support tables with multiple tgroups in FO.

  • Output fo:table-columns in simplelist tables.

  • Use titlepage.templates.xml for indexdiv and glossdiv formatting.

  • Improve support for new bibliography elements.

  • Added footnote.number.format, table.footnote.number.format, footnote.number.symbols, and table.footnote.number.symbols for better control of footnote markers.

  • Added glossentry.show.acronyms.

  • Suppress the draft-mode page masters when draft-mode is no.

  • Make blank pages verso not recto. D'Oh!

  • Improved formatting of ulink footnotes.

  • Fixed bugs in graphic width/height calculations.

  • Added class attributes to inline elements.

  • Don't add .html to the filenames identified with the dbhtml PI.

  • Don't force a ToC when sections contain refentrys.

  • Make section title sizes a function of the body.master.size.

Release 1.59.2

The 1.59.2 fixes an FO bug in the page masters that causes FOP to fail.

  • Removed the region-name from the region-body of blank pages. There's no reason to give the body of blank pages a unique name and doing so causes a mismatch that FOP detects.

  • Output IDs for the first paragraphs in listitems.

  • Fixed some small bugs in the handling of page numbers in double-sided mode.

  • Attempt to prevent duplicated IDs from being produced when endterm on xref points to something with nested structure.

  • Fix aligment problems in equations.

  • Output the type attribute on unordered lists (UL) in HTML only if the css.decoration parameter is true.

  • Calculate the font size in formal.title.properties so that it's 1.2 times the base font size, not a fixed "12pt".

Release 1.59.1

The 1.59.1 fixes a few bugs.

  • Added Bulgarian localization.

  • Indexing improvements; localize book indexes to books but allow setindex to index an entire set.

  • The default value for rowsep and colsep is now "1" as per CALS.

  • Added support for titleabbrev (use them for cross references).

  • Improvements to mediaobject for selecting print vs. online images.

  • Added seperate property sets for figures, examples, equations, tabless, and procedures.

  • Make lineannotations italic.

  • Support xrefstyle attribute.

  • Make endterm on xref higher priority than xreflabel target.

  • Glossary formatting improvements.

Release 1.58.0

The 1.58.0 adds some initial support for extensions in xsltproc, adds a few features, and fixes bugs.

  • This release contains the first attempt at extension support for xsltproc. The only extension available to date is the one that adjusts table column widths. Run extensions/xsltproc/python/xslt.py.

  • Fixed bugs in calculation of adjusted column widths to correct for rounding errors.

  • Support nested refsection elements correctly.

  • Reworked gentext.template to take context into consideration. The name of elements in localization files is now an xpath-like context list, not just a simple name.

  • Made some improvements to bibliography formatting.

  • Improved graphical formatting of admonitions.

  • Added support for entrytbl.

  • Support spanning index terms.

  • Support bibliosource.

Release 1.57.0

  • The 1.57.0 release wasn't documented here. Oops.

Release 1.56.0

The 1.56.0 release fixes bugs.

  • Reworked chunking. This will break all existing customizations layers that change the chunking algorithm. If you're customizing chunking, look at the new content parameter that's passed to process-chunk-element and friends.

  • Support continued and inherited numeration in orderedlist formatting for FOs.

  • Added Thai localization.

  • Tweaked stylesheet documentation stylesheets to link to TDG and the parameter references.

  • Allow title on tables of contents ("Table of Contents") to be optional. Added new keyword to generate.toc. Support tables of contents on sections.

  • Made separate parameters for table borders and table cell borders: table.frame.border.color, table.frame.border.style, table.frame.border.thickness, table.cell.border.color, table.cell.border.style, and table.cell.border.thickness.

  • Suppress formatting of endofrange indexterms. This is only half-right. They should generate a range, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

  • Support revdescription. (Bug #582192)

  • Added default.float.class and fixed figure floats. (Bug #497603)

  • Fixed formatting of sbr in FOs.

  • Added context to the missing template error message.

  • Process arg correctly in a group. (Bug #605150)

  • Removed 'keep-with-next' from formal.title.properties attribute set now that the stylesheets support the option of putting such titles below the object. Now the $placement value determines if 'keep-with-next' or 'keep-with-previous' is used in the title block.

  • Wrap url() around external-destinations when appropriate.

  • Fixed typo in compact list spacing. (Bug #615464)

  • Removed spurious hash in anchor name. (Bug #617717)

  • Address is now displayed verbatim on title pages. (Bug #618600)

  • The bridgehead.in.toc parameter is now properly supported.

  • Improved effectiveness of HTML cleanup by increasing the number of places where it is used. Improve use of HTML cleanup in XHTML stylesheets.

  • Support table of contents for appendix in article. (Bug #596599)

  • Don't duplicate footnotes in bibliographys and glossarys. (Bug #583282)

  • Added default.image.width. (Bug #516859)

  • Totally reworked funcsynopsis code; it now supports a 'tabular' presentation style for 'wide' prototypes; see funcsynopsis.tabular.threshold. (HTML only right now, I think, FO support, uh, real soon now.)

  • Reworked support for difference marking; toned down the colors a bit and added a system.head.content template so that the diff CSS wasn't overriding user.head.content. (Bug #610660)

  • Added call to the *.head.content elements when writing out long description chunks.

  • Make sure legalnotice link is correct even when chunking to a different base.dir.

  • Use CSS to set viewport characteristics if css.decoration is non-zero, use div instead of p for making graphic a block element; make figure titles the default alt text for images in a figure.

  • Added space-after to list.block.spacing.

  • Reworked section.level template to give correct answer instead of being off by one.

  • When processing tables, use the tabstyle attribute as the division class.

  • Fixed bug in html2xhtml.xsl that was causing the XHTML chunker to output HTML instead of XHTML.

About dot-zero releases

DocBook Project “dot zero” releases should be considered experimental and are always followed by stable “dot one plus” releases, usually within two or three weeks. Please help to ensure the stability of “dot one plus” releases by carefully testing each “dot zero” release and reporting back about any problems you find.

It is not recommended that you use a “dot zero” release in a production system. Instead, you should wait for the “dot one” or greater versions.
