Dear TEI Community!
The TEI Consortium has released version 3.6.0 of the TEI Guidelines, the “Potrzebie” release, and version 7.48.0 of the TEI Stylesheets. The “Potrzebie” release is a celebration of Mad Magazine and its invention of an imaginary ‘Potrzebie system’ of measurement in its early issues. The name is especially fitting due to a combination of factors: Mad Magazine ceases publication of new issues in August 2019, and the ‘Potrzebie system’ is represented in an example accompanying a major feature of this TEI release: a way of defining nonstandard systems and units of measurement.
Our release technicians were Elisa Beshero-Bondar and Magdalena Turska, assisted by Hugh Cayless, James Cummings, Martin Holmes, Luis Meneses, Peter Stadler, Raff Viglianti, and myself. For details, please see the release notes below.
As always, we encourage you all to report bugs and make feature requests via the GitHub site at https://github.com/TEIC/TEI/issues. Your input is what tells us what to work on, and we cannot do without it! All of the TEI Consortium’s software projects are hosted at https://github.com/TEIC and issues or feature requests should be reported at the various project repositories there. The Guidelines are available from all the usual places (such as the TEI website http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/index.html and the GitHub site https://github.com/TEIC/TEI/releases/tag/P5_Release_3.6.0). A new release of the TEI Stylesheets has been made in conjunction with the 3.6.0 release at https://github.com/TEIC/Stylesheets/releases/tag/v7.48.0. Furthermore, the Debian package has been updated at http://packages.tei-c.org/deb/. The TEI Guidelines and the Stylesheets are available for download at https://sourceforge.net/projects/tei/files/.
The release introduces new features, and it resolves a number of issues raised by the TEI community. As always, the majority of these changes and corrections are a consequence of feature requests or bugs reported by the TEI community using the GitHub tracking system. A full list of the issues resolved in the course of this release cycle may be found under the<a href="https://github.com/TEIC/TEI/issues?q=is%3Aissue+milestone%3A%22Guidelines+3.6.0%22+is%3Aclosed"> 3.6.0 milestone.
The following changes are particularly worth highlighting in this release:
Furthermore, a number of translations have been added or updated. For the Japanese translations, we especially thank Kiyonori Nagasaki and his formidable team, along with Hanna McGaughey.
Documentation of Council practices in TCW 20 is improved for referencing figures more precisely and for more consistently writing Schematron constraints using standard Schematron values for the role attribute.
In addition, many improvements have been made to the XSLT stylesheets (which provide processing of TEI ODD files for Roma and OxGarage as well as other TEI conversions). The Stylesheets are maintained separately from the Guidelines and are at https://github.com/TEIC/Stylesheets. A full list of the issues resolved in the course of this release cycle may be found under the<a href="https://github.com/TEIC/Stylesheets/issues?q=is%3Aissue+milestone%3A%22Guidelines+3.6.0+%2F+Stylesheets+7.48.0%22+is%3Aclosed"> 7.48.0 milestone.
Highlights of this release include:
