Subject: DocBook Slides 5.0 alpha1 available for testing

Dear DocBook Users,

I'm proud to announce the second alpha of the new DocBook Slides 5.0
schema extension, rewritten for DocBook 5.0.  Please take into account
that this is a really early version and may contain bugs and later
changes may break compatibility with this version (although the schema
probably will not change heavily).  It is purely meant to be preview for
interested users, who are willing to test it.

This extension is written in RELAX-NG for the DocBook 5.0 RELAX-NG
schema and uses a new namespace for Slides elements.  You can convert
your old Slides with the XSLT in the tools directory, which should be
able to deal with all common cases.  Currently, stylesheets are only
available for XHTML-based formats.  The recommended format is HTML Slidy
or plain XHMTL with custom CSS.  The quite widespread S5 format is also
available but development of the upstream code seems to be discontinued
so its use is discouraged.  All of these stylesheets are based on the
slightly modified NS-aware DocBook stylesheets.

The alpha version can be downloaded from here:

After downloading, please start at the ALPHATEST file.

Gabor Kovesdan


Slides 5.0 alpha 2

- Deliver S5 and Slidy files with a slightly modified
  styling that is more appropriate for slides.
- slides:rnc: Add the incremental and collapsable to the
  dbs namespace to better distinguish that they are part
  of DocBook Slides
- slides.rnc: Allow inline MathML and SVG in foil content.
- slides.rnc: Add a block element to control layout on foils
- slides.rnc: Introduce a dbs:style attribute for adding styling
  info to specific elements.
- slides.rnc: Allow title, titleabbrev and subtitle outside
- dbs3-upgrade.xsl: Copy inline MathML and SVG chunks.
- dbs3-upgrade.xsl: Do not enclose title, titleabbrev, subtitle
  into info if they were not wrapped in the original document.
- xhtml/plain.xsl: Add extensive support for inline MathML and SVG.
  There are several ways to embed them into the output and
  it can be tuned by XSL parameters.
- xhtml/plain.xsl: Properly handle title generating based on the above
  change and always prefer titleabbrev over title if present.
- xhtml/plain.xsl: Rework attribute processing so that inheritance
  work as supposed to
- xhtml/plain.xsl: Support blocks by wrapping content into classed
  divs.  They can be styled in user.css.
- xhtml/*.xsl: Add support for incremental images.
- xhtml/*.xsl: Support for an extra user.css that can hold
  additional styling over those of S5/Slidy
- doc/slides.xml: Add SVG and MathML examples
- doc/slides.xml: Add incremental image example
- doc/slides.xml: Add an user.css to support incremental image
- doc/slides.xml: Mention using bibliography for references
- doc/slides.xml: Add a block example
- doc/slides.xml: Reorganize image-related content
- doc/slides.xml: Use CALS tables that are better supported by
  DocBook XSL
- doc/slides.xml: Update mini-reference

Slides 5.0 alpha 1
- Initial rewrite from scratch for DocBook 5.0.
  For now only supported output formats are
  plain XHTML, S5 and W3C Slidy.
