Which version of ConTeXt?

from x-set-11.tex:


or from Hans's email (I just wanted to tell you that you might
probably want to use the same command for documenting your module):




and you can use \loadsetups[m-database.xml]

Thanks for this one! (I just wanted to ask how to prevent lenghty
loading of cont-en.)
I don't understand why I have to do two other things tow prevent
something, but since it's a new functionality anyway: would it by any
chance be possible that it would't load the cont-eni.xml by default
when using [complex]loadsetups?

>    \usemodule[mod-01]
>    \startXMLmapping[zero]
>    \processXMLfilegrouped{t-bib.xml}
>    \stopXMLmapping

Apart from loading the first module that should be the same.

It should be in ConTeXt already.

Thanks. It might make sense (but also most commands in cont-eni.xml
should be fixed then as well - I followed the pattern from there). I
still don't get the setups shown, but ...

Thanks. But no luck either. I'll play a bit more.

Thanks. Such a stupid mistake!
