[ANN] xmlroff 0.6.0

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
languages.

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
http://xmlroff.org/download/xmlroff-0.6.0.tar.gz

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.

Regards,
