All Publisher's web components are now available as a LitElement library distributed via npm. While invisible to users, this redesign greatly improves modularity and simplifies updates of Publisher-based applications. It also facilitates embedding of Publisher custom components into CMS systems (e.g. Hugo or WordPress) and other application frameworks (like angular, vue or react).

This version also brings extended internationalization and full localization into 19 languages, simplified styling, support for data organization based on subcollections, several new and enhanced components (including one for notated music encoded in MEI), improved ODD editor and major extension and revision of the documentation.

A 3-part online course on TEI Publisher 6 has been led by Wolfgang Meier in June 2020. Video recordings of all the sessions, and a walk-through for the assignments are available for self-study.
