Subject: [ANN] Publican 2 released

Publican 2 is finally finished and released. The most significant update 
is the incorporation of the web-publishing component that was previously 
used stand-alone by Red Hat internally and, more recently, has been used 
by the Fedora Documentation Project to build the Fedora documentation 
suite.[0] With web publishing built in, Publican can handle the whole 
publication process from DocBook XML to a live website. The new feature 
is documented in a new chapter in the Users' Guide.[1]

Apart from this major new feature, Publican 2 also includes fixes for 
several bugs; most notably: xrefs to various elements that didn't work, 
problems with <indexterms> for translators, and various presentation flaws.

Publican 2 is not yet available as a Fedora update; however, you can 
download builds from the Fedora build system (Koji) for testing.[2] 
Publican 2 will become generally available in Fedora once it has 
accumulated enough Karma in the Fedora update system (Bodhi).[3]

For users of other operating systems, the source tarball is available 
from Fedorahosted.[4]
