You shouldn't have to recompile anything.

Changes from DocBook V3.1 to DocBook V4.0 beta 2:


- RFE  17: Added a common attribute 'Condition' for generic effectivity
- RFE  38: The nav.class elements (ToC|LoT|Index|Glossary|Bibliography) are
           now allowed at the beginning and end of components and sections
- RFE  58: The 'optmult' and 'reqmult' attribute values have been
           removed from Group
- RFE  65: Added several class attribute values to Filename and SystemItem
           at the request of the Linux community
- RFE  73: Removed BookBiblio and SeriesInfo
- RFE  81: Added SidebarInfo to Sidebar
- RFE  87: Added 'xmlpi' and 'emptytag' as class values of SGMLTag
- RFE  92: Added 'CO' to Synopsis and LiteralLayout
- RFE  99: Added SimpleMsgEntry as an alternative to MsgEntry in order
           to provide a simpler MsgSet construct
- RFE 103: Added RevDescription as an alternative to RevRemark in
           RevHistory; this allows longer descriptive text in a revision
- RFE 104: Added 'Specification' to the list of document classes on Article
- RFE 108: Allow admonitions in Answers
- RFE 110: Allow a RevHistory on QandAEntry
- RFE 115: Allow optional Title on OrderedList and ItemizedList
- RFE 116: Added LineNumbering attribute to linespecific environments for
           presentation of line numbers
- Added a common attribuet 'Security' for effectivity
- Added synopsis markup for modern programming languages (e.g, object
  oriented languages like Java, C++, and IDL)


- RFE  88: Added PEs to include/ignore dbnotn.mod and dbcent.mod
- RFE 102: Fixed some outstanding namecase problems
- RFE 105: Added PNG notation
- RFE 106: Removed some odd *.content PEs that interfered with
           customization layers
- RFE 109: Added FPI to content of dbgenent.mod (for consistency)
- RFE 111: Added the Euro symbol
- Fixed bug in cals-tbl.dtd; a model group was used for the element
  declaration, but the attlist declaration used "Table" literally.

In particular, note that <graphic> is now empty (RFE ???, uh, I
don't know why that's not listed. Ooops.) and <seriesinfo> (RFE 73)
has gone away.

                                        Be seeing you,
