DocBook 5 will likely have a stable release soon.
Clearly, by "soon" I meant 17 months. Ahem. My prognostication
abilities leave something to be desired. In any case, DocBook 5.0 has been
finalized (that is, approved as a committee draft) as of 2008-02-06!
And there was much rejoicing!
When I wrote this article, DocBook 5 was at beta 7; after two more
betas, it also went through 7 release candidates before arriving at 5.0
final. There were a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements, but the
overall DocBook architecture is largely the same as described in this
article. For all the gory details, check out the change log.
