<chapter><title>JadeTeX 3.12 Release Notes</title>
<para>JadeTeX is a companion package to the OpenJade DSSSL processor.
OpenJade applies a DSSSL stylesheet to an SGML or XML document. The output
of this process can be in a number of forms, including a set of high level
LaTeX macros. It is the task of the JadeTeX package to transform these
macros into DVI/PostScript (use the command <command>jadetex</command>) or Portable Document Format (PDF) form (use the command <command>pdfjadetex</command>).</para>
<para>JadeTeX is architecture and platform independent. If LaTeX is available for your platform, then JadeTeX will be also.</para>
<sect1><title>Obtaining JadeTeX</title>
<para>The latest version of JadeTeX may be obtained from
<filename>http://jadetex.sourceforge.net</filename></para>
</sect1>
<sect1><title>Dependencies</title>
<para>Jadetex is dependent upon OpenJade and a reasonably up to date and full featured LaTeX installation. For best results OpenJade 1.3.1 should be used. However, JadeTeX will work fine with older versions (including Jade 1.2.1), although it may be necessary to adjust your <filename>jadetex.cfg</filename> configuration file to supply JadeTeX with any features missing from your version of OpenJade.</para>
<para>Any recent LaTeX distribution such as TeXlive, fpTeX or teTeX is required. As a guide the following table lists some of the requirements and suggested minimum versions.</para>

<sect1><title>Installation</title>
<para>See the installation guide.</para>
</sect1>
<sect1><title>Configuration</title>
<para>It is possible to customize the behavior of JadeTeX by placing definitions in the file <filename>jadetex.cfg</filename>. This is usually placed in your working directory, but theoretically make be placed anywhere in your TeX path.</para>
<para>If you are producing PDF files then you may wish to consult the <command>hyperref</command> documentation. Options for customizing the look and feel of the PDF file described in the hyperref documentation should be placed in the <filename>jadetex.cfg</filename>. For example:
<screen>
\hypersetup{pdfpagemode=None,  pdfauthor=jadetex team,  colorlinks=false,
 linkcolor=black,  pdfstartview=FitH}
\def\Gin@extensions{.pdf,.png,.jpg,.mps,.tif}
</screen>
Would cause the PDF document to open without displaying book marks.
Links would not be highlighted in anyway (if they were, the would be color black).
The document will be placed in a "fit width" viewing mode.
Finally, pdfjadetex would prefer image with a pdf extensions over a png extension if none is specified.
This is useful if you want to give priority to scalable documents for a PDF file, while preferring a bit mapped format for other output types.</para>
<para>If you have a out of date version of openjade, which does not support the characteristics 
<screen>
  "UNREGISTERED::OpenJade//Characteristic::page-two-side?"

  "UNREGISTERED::OpenJade//Characteristic::two-side-start-on-right?"
</screen>
and you want to use two sided output then you would have to add the definitions
<screen>
\def\PageTwoSide{1}
\def\TwoSideStartOnRight{1}
</screen>
to your <filename>jadetex.cfg</filename> to make up for the deficiency.</para>

<sect1><title>Version 3.12</title>
<formalpara><title>Released January 2002.</title>
<para>This release is primarily a maintenance release and is intended
to be used with openjade 1.3.1. In addition to fixing some bugs it
also provides enhanced support for the "euro" monetary symbol &euro;.</para>
