Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Time for new DocBook Stylesheet Release?

I'm all for making DocBook future proof, but I'm not sure where to go with this request. Choosing one of the four frameworks you mention seems arbitrary, and all four is too much. DocBook tries to support outputs based on published standards, or at least de facto standards. Are there any such standards for HTML for mobile devices?

Thanks for asking. A couple of things pop up in my mind. HTML5 output
based on Bootstrap, UI kit or Foundation (or whatever modern CSS
framework you prefer). Or why not PhoneGap-ready output. I think in
the long run, HTML output targeted for mobile devices would be one
very exciting and useful feature for Docbook XSLT. Just have a look
on sites like https://readthedocs.org or https://stripe.com/docs/api.
I’m not saying that those sites are the mother of all things. But I
am convinced that output like this would make Docbook more
future-proof than it seems to be right now.

Do you have any output targets in mind? What would be interesting
to you?

I'd be interested to know what to expect from these updates to
come too – besides bug fixes I mean. Are there any plans to
implement some new and exciting output targets? We have been
building a CCMS system with Docbook as its backbone. So for my
company it would be very important to know if Docbook is still
alive and kicking.

Hi Thomas, Has it really been two years?!  I'll start the process
to produce a new DocBook XSL release, and then work with the
other developers to carry out the transition of the build to Ant,
hopefully simplifying the rather arcane process.

in the last years I've observed a trend, that the DocBook

don't publish new releases very often.

The last release of the stylesheets is from 2013 which is two
years old!

Am I'm the only one who need and wait desperately for a new
release? ;))

I know, you are all busy with other things. However, I fear, this

the wrong impression that this project is dead. I hope this is

After two years I would love to see a new release. Maybe with a

cycle which counts in months and not years?

Any plans? Thoughts? :)
