Subject: ANNOUNCE : DB2LaTeX 0.7

Fellow docbookers,

We are pleased to announce you the immediate availability of
DB2LaTeX 0.7

DB2LaTeX is a set of XSL stylesheets that transforms DocBook
XML Documents into LaTeX 2e sources, which can be compiled into
PDF or PostScript using a standard LaTeX distribution as MiKTeX or

DB2LaTeX 0.7 contains extensive revisions since previous DB2LaTeX
releases. Due to these changes, users of previous DB2LaTeX releases may
wish to revise any custom driver files. DB2LaTeX 0.7 is a a beta release
and further work remains to be done before the release of DB2LaTeX 1.0.
Comments and bugfixes/patches are always welcome and in such cases, we
encourage users to send in specific DocBook XML examples.

Ramon Casellas
James Devenish
DB2LaTeX team.
