Many many thanks, Sebastian for this very good (even if, I guess  
tedious for you) work.
Let's wait and see whether someone shouts, but in any case we can now  
focus on the content!

> The new release of the TEI Guidelines in all its forms is now  
> complete. You can find it by:
> * visiting the TEI Web site and reading the Guidelines at http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/index.html
> * using the schemas etc direct from the web site eg http://www.tei-c.org/release/xml/tei/custom/schema/relaxng/tei_all.rng
> * using Roma at http://www.tei-c.org/Roma/
> * downloading a zip archive from Sourceforge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/tei/files/TEI-P5-all/ 
> )
> * subscribing to Ubuntu/Debian packages via http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/teideb/
> * checking out the source files using Subversion from Sourceforge  
> (see https://sourceforge.net/scm/?type=svn&group_id=106328)
> The nice folks at oXygen will include it all in their next release,  
> I am sure.
> The release notes can be found at http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/readme-1.9.html
> Please note that this is an interim, largely procedural, release,  
> and has no major additions
> or changes in functionality.  The TEI Council has been working to  
> simplify the maintenance
> and releasing of the Guidelines, and it seemed sensible to clear the  
> decks now and
> resolve any problems in implementation. This could mean another  
> procedural release
> if something goes hideously wrong :-{
> The TEI Council meets in April and expects to make a release after  
> that which addresses some
> of the backlog of feature requests.
> There are two important points to bear in mind:
>   a) as discussed a few weeks ago, the implementation of global  
> attributes has changed.
>       Each element is now explicitly a member of the att.global  
> class. If you have an ODD
>       which adds new elements in the TEI namespace, it will no  
> longer have global attributes
>       (xml:id, rend etc) added by default.
>   b) the web Roma tool has now switched to pass all processing to  
> the OxGarage server,
>      which runs a later (improved) set of ODD-processing  
> stylesheets.  You may notice
>      changes (I hope not!). The XSLT 1.0 ODD-processing stylesheets  
> are now
>      removed from the Stylesheets package as they will no longer  
> give the right results.
> The 1.9.0 release of the TEI is accompanied by release 5.50 of the  
> TEI Stylesheets package and
> release 4.3 of Roma. These are intimately connected, because of the  
> global attributes, so
> don't attempt to mix and match unless you know what you are doing.
