Subject: [ANN] DAPS 2.0 released


after more than two years of development, 15 pre-releases and more than
2000 commits we proudly present release 2.0 of the DocBook Authoring
and Publishing Suite, in short DAPS 2.0.

DAPS lets you publish your DocBook 4 or Docbook 5 XML sources in
various output formats such as HTML, PDF, EPUB, man pages or ASCII with
a single command. It is perfectly suited for large documentation
projects by providing profiling support and packaging tools.

DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator,
spellchecker, and editor macros. DAPS exclusively runs on Linux.

The DAPS Project

DAPS is developed by the SUSE Linux documentation team and used to
generate the product documentation for all SUSE Linux products.
However, it is not exclusively tailored for SUSE documentation, but
supports every documentation written in DocBook.

DAPS has been tested on Debian Wheezy, Fedora 20/21 openSUSE 13.x,
SLE 12, and Ubuntu 14.10.

The DAPS project moved from SourceForge to GitHub and is now available
at https://opensuse.github.io/daps/

Have fun! :)
