Subject: Announce: DocBook V4.4b2

DocBook V4.4b2 is available at http://docbook.org/

From the spec:

3. The DocBook Document Type V4.4b2

   The DocBook document type is distributed for XML and SGML from the DocBook
   site at OASIS. DocBook is also available from the mirror on

  3.1. Changes in DocBook V4.4b2

   There are no backwards-incompatible changes in this release.

   Each of the changes made between DocBook V4.4b1 and DocBook V4.4b2 is
   summarized here. For complete details, consult the individual RFEs and the
   meeting minutes.

    3.1.1. Bug Fixes

     o Version 4.4b2 includes the W3C XML Entity Declarations for Characters.
       These entities are distributed for historical compatibility and user
       convenience. The DocBook Technical Committee no longer attempts to
       maintain these definitions and will periodically update them from the
       W3C site if and as they are updated there.

     o Removed xml:base from the SGML DTD.

     o Allow HTML tables to nest (allow table and informaltable inside td and

     o Changed the rules attribute, which can appear on HTML tables, from an
       enumeration to CDATA. This avoids a conflict with the enumerated
       values on the frame attribute on CALS tables.

    3.1.2. Enhancements

     o Added bibliolist.

     o Added a parameter entity to allow customizers to exclude the €
       character entity.

                                        Be seeing you,
