Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: sgml2x 0.99.7 released

sgml2x 0.99.7 is out.  This is the second release-candidate for 1.0.0.

0.99.6 was only finding definitions in the old location; it now
ignores editor and package-management backups and other cruft in
style-definition dirs; fixes signal handling in the runjade wrapper,
removing the annoying message everyone complained about; and handles
conffile transition in the Debian package.

sgml2x allows to easily format a SGML or XML document using DSSSL
style-sheets, and provides the following features:

   - Multiple possible style-sheets per document class

   - Easy specification of style-sheets using aliases

   - Easy integration of new style-sheets by adding a simple new
   definition file in a configuration directory

   - The caller can specify a PATH-like list of configuration
   directories, defaulting to a system-wide, a per-user, and a
   per-project configuration directories

   - Automatic selection of a default style-sheet to be used, based on
   assigned priorities

   - Pass arbitrary options to jade(1)

The document-class used to look for the style-sheets, and the output
format, is for now only derived from the name with which the program
is called, so you will want to call this program through symbolic
links like docbook-2-pdf.

sgml2x is a implemented as a shell wrapper around jade(1) (or,
preferably, openjade(1), although we use the generic name jade
throughout this documentation), jadetex(1) and other tools.
