Hello Amin,

Yes, we also noticed this yesterday to our horror. It had to do with the
changes that I and another developer had committed on Friday. We forgot
to commit one additional file along with it.

The way we fixed it in our situation is by doing the following, will you
also try it:

1. download the following file from svn

2. place it in your greenstone3 installation folder's web/ui/xslt
folder. It should replace the older preProcess.xsl file already there.

3. Do not forget to update the following 3 files from svn:

a. Replace your

b. Replace your
greenstone3/src/java/org/greenstone/gsdl3/util/XMLTransformer.java with

c. Replace your
greenstone3/src/java/org/greenstone/gsdl3/util/XMLConverter.java with

4. Finally, make sure to recompile everything by stopping your server,
going into your greenstone3 installation folder and typing:
> ant compile-core

Restart the server and try it out now.
Did it work? Tell us if it didn't.
