8.0.0 - 12th September 2022


  • In this 8.0.0 release we have included our latest table comparison algorithms for CALS Tables. The new approach is based on different techniques:

    1. Comparing the columns of a table first, based on the content that they contain.

    2. Reconstructing a non-ragged table showing column and row adds and deletes but basing the final structure on that of the B input.

Dependency Changes

  • We have dropped support for Saxon 9.8 in this release. Saxon 9.9 is the version distributed with DocBook Compare.

  • Included JAXB dependencies to support Java 11 and above.

  • Included GSON dependency for use when Usage Logging is enabled.
