* Thu Aug 04 2016
Stable release DAPS 2.3.0:
  Just to please the SLES submission bot: bsc#992546
  * New Features:
  - Config File Parser:
    Up to now, config files (DC-files, /tec/daps/config and
    ~/.config/daps/dapsrc) have been sourced. This has been a major
    security issue, since every shell code gets executed when a file
    is being sourced. DAPS 2.3.0 now comes with a parser that fixes
    this security hole. Apart from one exception (see below) existing
    config files do _not_ need to be changed. However, the parser
    offers more flexibility, see
    for documentation (the manuals has not been upfdated, yet).
    The only exception that requires changes in the config file is
    something like FOO="$FOO bar" To concatenate values, use "+="
    now. See the following commit for an example:
  - Bash Completion:
    TAB-completion for DAPS has been one of the very first feature
    requests we opened (almost five years ago). Now we finally
    managed to conquer the black Bash magic required to get it!
  - Automatically detect the DocBook 5 version: If you have
    DocBook 5.1 installed, docbookxi.rng from 5.1 will
    automatically be used as the validating schema for DocBook 5
    documents. If you rather want to use the 5.0 schema
    or a custom schema, set DOCBOOK5_RNG_URI accordingly in
    /etc/daps/config (for a system wide configuration), in
    $HOME/.config/daps/dapsrc (for a user specific configuration),
    or in the DC-file (for a document-specific configuration)
  * Bugfixes:
  - subcommand "locdrop" failed when the book did not include
  - spellcheck now ignores text in <replaceable> tags
  - obsolete daps-susespell has been removed (replaced by
    daps ... spellcheck long ago)
  - paths starting with "~" were not always correctly resolved
  - several fixes for ePUB, among them a fix that now correctly
    chooses mediaobject entries with role="html" rather than
    choosing the first one listed ion the XML source
  - #10 : Generate TAB completion
  - #359: Drop bash 3 suppor
  - #369: Code review: Check Variable Assignments
  - #375: Issues with the xmlformat target
* Wed Jun 15 2016
Stable release DAPS 2.2.0:
  * New Features:
  - new subcommand "xmlformat" prettyfies the XML sources of a
    given DC-file or ROOTID using daps-xmlformat with
    (Note: this command will modify the original XML sources!)
  - SVG image support for HTML builds. To use it, make sure to
    provide the images in SVG format ad reference to them as follows:
    <imageobject role="html">
    <imagedata fileref="<SVG-FILE>" format="SVG"/>
  - the new global switch --jobs lets you specify how many parallel
    jobs to use. The default is set to the number of CPU cores (as was
    done in previous versions).
  - all commands generating file lists (e.g. "list-srcfiles") now
    generate human readable output on STDOUT. When the output goes
    to a pipe or subshell, it will be generated as a a one-liner.
  - Debugging of XML errors has been made easier. Sometimes the error
    message of the validator only points to an xi:include line, making
    it impossible to find the real location of the error. The option
  - -novalid for the target "bigfile" will create the bigfile
    without performing a validation check on the sources. A single XML
    will be built and validated. Now the error message points to the
    exact location of the error in the bigfile. From there it should be
    easy to find the error in the original sources.
  - Verbose and debugging output now also show all profiling
    attributes set in the DC-file, plus version information for
    the sytlesheets (if available)
  - added the option --norefchecks to all output-generating targets
    ("html", "pdf", ...), "validate", "bigfile" and others. Allows
    to build/validate documents without checking internal links
    (<... linkend="<ID>">).
  - subcommand "online-docs" now always converts the bigfile that is
    created to NovDoc. To keep the same format as the original
    sources, specify --dbnoconv. To create a DocBook4 bigfile from
    DocBook5 sources, specify --db5todb4.
  * Bugfixes:
  - #368: db4tonovdoc.xsl generates invalid NovDoc
  - #367: daps does not validate fop output
  - #366: Spellcheck trying to check the files "Cannot", "stat:", "No",
    "such", "file" ...
  - #364: DocBook5: Allow validating without checking xrefs
  - #363: Allow building a bigfile from invalid sources
  - #362: Make the number of parallel jobs configurable
  - #361: Externel xrefs are resolved to "????"
  - #360: Check Rootid fails on Debian 8.4.0
  - #356: file list output should default to pretty format
  - #354: Validate the result of online docs when it has been
    converted from DB5 to DB4 or novdoc
  - #353: Make db5 to db4 conversion default for online-docs
  - #351, #348, #342, #282: Fixes for the daps spec-file
  - #346: daps-xmlformat writes its messages into the output
  - #343: daps-init warning messages
  - #340: ePUB builds always show remarks
  - #335: on Debian, make install creates incorrect group in
  - #330: Enable SVG2Grayscale stylesheet to handle new color
  - #305: locdrop produces no "non-trans" image tarball for a
    complete set
  - #301: SVG to PNG conversion creates very large PNGs
  - #289: Verbose / Debugging Output Should Show Profiling
  - #251: Write XSLT to Return xml-model PI
  - #226: Let stylesheets know which version of DAPS calls them
  - subcommand "clean-all" fails if run from within a directory
    that will be removed with that command
  - daps fails when called from a directory that no longer exists
  * Cross-Distribution Support
  - first release with full Debian/Ubuntu support--manual
    adjustments after the installation are no longer needed
    (was required in previous releases for DocBook5 support).
    Many thanks to Tomá? Ba?ant and Christoph Berg for their help!
  - GitHub checkouts now also work for Fedora/RedHat and
    Debian/Ubuntu--refer to
    for details
  - tested on Debian 8.5.0 / Fedora 23 / openSUSE 13.2 and
    Leap 42.1 / SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 / Ubuntu 16.0
  * Misc:
  - removed "daps-envconvert", a script for converting susedoc
    ENV-files to DAPS DC-files. susedoc was the predecessor of

    new features mentioned above are not yet covered
* Sun Apr 17 2016
- Add reproducible.patch to fix build-compare
* Mon Dec 07 2015
Stable release DAPS 2.1.5:
  * New Features:
  - parameters for text generation can be set in the config files
    via TXT_PARAMS or via --param/--stringparam on the command line
  - a change introduced in 2.0 made using the original DocBook
    stylesheets for text generation the default. Since this behavior
    is confusing and unexpected, it is reverted with this change:
  * the stylesheets configured via STYLEROOT or --styleroot are
    used by default for text generation
  * to ignore _any_ STYLEROOT definitions, set
    TXT_IGNORE_STYLEROOT="yes" in the config files or use
  - -ignore-styleroot on the command line
    (daps -d <DC> text --ignore-styleroot)
  * Bugfixes:
  - Fix for issue #294: xmlcatalog returns file:<PATH> rather than
    file://<PATH> on Debian Jessie and openSUSE Tumbleweed and
    caused DAPS to fail with DB5 sources
  * Misc
  - added basic debugging output to test suite (--debug)
* Wed Dec 02 2015

  * Bugfixes:
  - Target text shows remarks (issue #293)
  - DAPS checklink doesn't work (issue #296)

  - Improve DocBook5 -> DocBook4 -> Novdoc Stylesheets (issue #311)
  - Enhancements in user guide, thanks to Martin Koeditz
    (issue #315)
  - FO contains wrong image paths when XML contains no profiling
    PI (issue #316)
  - DB-4-to-5 migration: missing book titles/productnames/productnumbers
    (issue #319)
  * New Features:
  - Option --schema lets you specify an URN to a DocBook 5 schema that
    is to be used for validation. Will be ignored when validating Docbbok4
    now also point to a local file. If the URN begins with the prefix
    "file://", it will not be resolved via xmlcatalog, but rather taken as
    is (minus "file://").
  - Add conversion options to online-docs:
    . --db5todb4: converts DocBook 5 sources to a DocBook 4 bigfile
    . --db5todb4nh: converts DocBook 5 sources to a DocBook 4
    bigfile without a DOCTYPE declaration
    . --dbtonovdoc: converts DocBook 4/5 to Novdoc
  * Misc:

    when called with --debug
  - "--param" and "--stringparam" were missing for the subcommands
    package-pdf and package-html
  - all warning messages now go to STDERR, making it possible to
    always catch the output of a DAPS command with FOO="$(daps...)
  * Misc:
  - added a wrapper for jing allwing to customize java flags,
    jars, and options
  - standardized customising options for all java programs (fop,
    jing, xep)
* Wed Aug 26 2015
- Do not print warning about deprecated --xsltparam option to
  standard output.  At least some sub-commands (e.g, package-html)
  haven't been moved to the new method of passing parameters to
  the xslt processor, so it is incorrect to say it is deprecated.
