TEI P5 version 2.5.0 release notes

This version of the TEI is an maintenance release to solve minor issues which were found after release 2.4.0. The changes in this release will not affect the majority of users of the TEI Guidelines. These maintenance fixes primarily are related to errors found in the processing of the English and French documentation of the TEI Lite example customization.

Since it was decided by the TEI Technical Council that these errors necessitated a maintenance release, the opportunity has been taken to correct a number of other issues. These include an omission made when the element precision was first introduced in 2009, explained on the bug report 585. This gives the element attributes from the att.ranging class which it was always intended to have. Also the xml:space attribute had previously been accidentally removed from the TEI Lite example customization, and this was restored. Because these change the underlying TEI schema, rather than just the prose, the release numbering increases from 2.4.* to 2.5.*.

Other non-schema affecting changes include:

If you find something you think needs to change in the TEI Guidelines, schemas, tools, or website, please submit a feature request or bug ticket at http://tei.sf.net/ for consideration by the TEI Technical Council. Lists of closed bugs and closed bugs and closed feature requests are available on the site.
