xmlroff (http://xmlroff.org) is a fast, free, high-quality,
multi-platform XSL formatter that aims to excel at DocBook formatting
and that integrates easily with other programs and with scripting

xmlroff 0.6.0 features a BSD license without a restriction against use
in a nuclear facility, an xmlroff.1 man page, and graphics rendering in
the Cairo backend.

xmlroff 0.6.0 is now available from

Thanks go to Jon Bosak and Mike Anastasio of Sun Microsystems for Sun's
re-release of its xmlroff source code under the no-restrictions BSD
license and to lode leroy for graphics in the Cairo backend.  Thanks
also go to Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven and Elvis Stansvik for
smoke-testing the release.

xmlroff is discussed on the xmlroff-list@xmlroff.org mailing list and on
the #xmlroff channel at oftc.net.
