Changes to Mallard

Changes in Mallard 1.1

  • The new div element is a generic block container element without semantics, allowing simple formal paragraphs, easier content reuse, and better behavior for extensions. See MEP-0005 and Issue 15.

  • Formal block elements, including lists and tables, may now contain an optional info element to provide metadata such as attributions, licensing information, and additional titles for extensions. See MEP-0002 and Issue 5.

  • Informational link elements may now point to external resources using an href attribute and provide a title and other metadata as child content. Support for external informational links depends on the type of link. See MEP-0007 and Issue 30.

  • The example element is now a formal element, accepting optional title and desc elements. See Issue 4.

  • The guiseq and keyseq elements allow linking attributes like other inline elements. See Issue 20.

  • The links element accepts a role attribute, allowing you to specify a link title role to try before using the standard link title role for the particular type of links element. See MEP-0003.
