Subject: The DocBook Schema Version 5.2 OASIS Standard published

OASIS Members and other interested parties,

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of its newest OASIS Standard, approved by the members on 06 February 2024:

The DocBook Schema Version 5.2
OASIS Standard
06 February 2024


Almost all computer hardware and software developed around the world needs some documentation. For the most part, this documentation has a similar structure and a large core of common idioms. The community benefits from having a standard, open, interchangeable vocabulary in which to write this documentation. DocBook has been, and will continue to be, designed to satisfy this requirement. For more than 25 years, DocBook has provided a structured markup vocabulary for just this purpose. DocBook Version 5.2 continues the evolution of the DocBook XML schema.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:
