It's hard to tell. We'll hopefully have a working version by November but it might take months until we could release something that people could use for production.

It depends on what you mean by improving CSS.

If you want to generate a table-less HTML layout, given your DocBook Website source files and website layout, you might want to take a look at SilkPage [2].

Yes, indeed!

I hope the person(s) who has/have been in charge of the latest releases will come to rescue. I'm a bit confused myself.

I reckon we'll use different versioning schemes for schemas and the styelesheets but it hasn't really been discussed yet.
