Subject: DocBook XSL 1.68.0 released
Version 1.68.0 of the DocBook XSL stylesheets is now available for download from the DocBook SourceForge site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/docbook/ This release adds some significant new features, particularly for FO/PDF output. As with all DocBook Project dot-0 releases, this release should be considered somewhat unstable and will likely be followed by a stable 1.68.1 release within the next two weeks (to correct problems reported with the dot-0 release). Among the user-visible changes: 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 * Added support for refdescriptor. * Added support for multiple refnamedivs. * Added support for xml:id * refsynopsisdiv as a section for counting section levels Images * Added new SVG admonition graphics and navigation images.
