Subject: DocBook Slides 5.0 beta1 available for testing

Dear DocBook Users,

I'm proud to announce the first beta of the new DocBook Slides 5.0
schema extension, rewritten for DocBook 5.0. This version has been named
as beta since it already contains the planned feature set for the final
release of 5.0 but it still needs testing. Unfortunately, the parameter
reference is not included since I was unable to build it, yet I followed
the instructions and I tried it on both FreeBSD and a freshly installed
Ubuntu Linux. I know this is a deficiency but I hope that I will be able
to provide it soon. For now, you have at least a list of parameters and
default values in xsl/slides/xhtml/params.xsl and
xsl/slides/fo/params.xsl. Most of the names are probably quite intuitive.

This beta version can be downloaded from here:

After downloading, please start at the BETATEST file.

Please at this point now report all inconveniences or bugs that you
