Subject: ANN: RefDB 0.9.9 released

Hi all,

this is to announce version 0.9.9 of RefDB, a reference database and  
bibliography tool for markup languages. For DocBook users, the key  
features of this new release are the support for the upcoming  
schema-based version 5.0, as well as the new support for "raw"  
bibliographies. By default, "cooked" bibliographies are generated  
which are processed through RefDB's own stylesheet driver files in  
order to provide formatting based on a publisher's or journal's  
requirements. "Raw" bibliographies are processed straight with the  
stock DocBook stylesheets, or with whatever XSLT you come up with  
yourself. The most important new non-DocBook-specific features are a  
completely rewritten web interface, with improved search capabilities,  
editing forms, and live links with a "tag cloud" display, as well as a  
SRU interface (Search and Retrieve via URL, see  
http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru) with MODS export.

A brief summary of other new features in this release is available  
(http://refdb.sourceforge.net/status.html#news20071105). For a general  
description of RefDB, see the features page  

Comments and suggestions for further improvements for DocBook users  
are very welcome.
