Subject: New SP/Jade Test Release

A new test release of SP and Jade is now available from:

Win32 binaries are available from:

This is SP version 1.2.92 and Jade version 1.0.93.

In SP the main change since 1.2.91 is better support for XML based on the final WebSGML Adaptations Annex. There's documentation on this is xml.htm. Also the SX application has been merged in.

In Jade the main change since 1.0.92 is in the FOT backend. The FOT file is now well-formed XML. It has also been changed to make it closer to the action part of an XSL style-sheet. The hyperlinking information is also represented in a more straightforward way. The idea is to make it practical both to have new backends that work from the FOT file and to have other programs that generate an FOT file. (Eventually I would like to make the existing backends be able to take input from an FOT file as well as directly from Jade.)

Note that I'm discontinuing distributing non-Unicode Win32 binaries, and so the SP Win32 executables do have Unicode support but no longer a "u" suffix.
