Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: *Experimental* DocBook XSL Stylesheets V1.30 released


I've just published version 1.30 of the DocBook XSL Stylesheets.  The
most significant changes have to do with extensions (including Xalan2
support), but there are a few other things.

The RenderX folks sent me a collection of updates to the FO
stylesheets which I expect to incorporate into a 1.31 release sometime
next week.

Please consider these release notes before you attempt to upgrade.

These are release notes for the DocBook XSL Stylesheets Version 1.30


- Xalan V1 is no longer supported for chunking, use Xalan V2
- Xalan V2 chunking sometimes fails. I don't think it's my bug.
- Saxon V6.1 is not supported, use 5.5.1, 6.0, or 6.2.1 or later instead
- Saxon V6.2 is not supported, use 5.5.1, 6.0, or 6.2.1 or later instead
- Chunking does not work with Saxon 6.2.1 (Michael Kay removed saxon:output
  in favor of xsl:document and xsl:document causes problems with other
  processors. I expect Michael to put saxon:output back in a future release,
  so it might work in 6.2.2 or later.)
- XT doesn't work with docbook.xsl, use xtdocbook.xsl instead

Extension support is provided for Saxon and Xalan V2. In order to use
the extensions, you must specify the appropriate Jar file on your

- extensions/xalan.jar for Xalan2
- extensions/saxon551.jar for Saxon 5.5.1
- extensions/saxon6 for Saxon 6.0
- extensions/saxon61 for Saxon 6.2.1 or later (yeah, I know that's wierd)

                                        Be seeing you,
