In den letzten Monaten habe ich ein wenig am Projekt 'DocBook in ConTeXt'
mitgearbeitet, Hauptautor ist jedoch Simon Pepping von der NTG. 
Heute abend hat er das erste offizielle Announcement auf der NTG ML
gepostet und mich gebeten, dies für die tex-d-l zu tun, was hiermit
geschieht. Mitstreiter werden dringend gesucht!


I am pleased to announce the first release of DocbookInContext.

DocbookInContext is a mapping of Docbook XML files to the ConTeXt
macro package for TeX. It is built upon the XML interface of
context. It allows one to produce a typeset version of a Docbook XML
file, in dvi or pdf format.

It is available from http://www.hobby.nl/~scaprea/context/.
See also http://www.miwie.org/db-context/ for information.

The first release implements the basic structure and mappings for a
selected set of elements. In view of the complexity of the Docbook
DTD, this can only be the beginning. Significant progress can only be
achieved with the help of more contributors. Anybody who has a
contribution, is invited to contact Simon Pepping.

DocbookInContext is written by Simon Pepping and Michael Wiedmann. It
is released under the GNU General Public License.
