After the P5 1.0 release on November 1st 2007, the TEI Technical Council has continued to refine the Guidelines and respond to error reports, with over 300 sets of changes committed to Sourceforge.
The vast majority of changes are to the text, at the grammatical, technical, and explanatory level.
We would like to acknowledge here the pre-eminent part played by Brett Zamir, who has read every chapter carefully, and made a huge number of important corrections and clarifications.
A very few changes have been made which affect generated schemas:
This release also includes a complete set of reference documentation generated for Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. The translation work is not finished yet, but is starting to be useable for these languages.
For the first time, the Guidelines are available in PDF as well as HTML. The design of this printable format was a collaborative effort by many members of the TEI Board of Directors and Technical Council, coordinated and implemented by Sebastian Rahtz.
New releases of Roma and the TEI XSL stylesheet family accompany this release, correcting reported bugs and providing more internationalisation.
