The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.

Other features include a builtin Swing-based viewer and comprehensive coverage of the epub standard, supporting the spine, the table of contents, and the guide. The API is designed to be as simple as possible, while at the same time making complex things possible too.
mdepub is a tool that allows you to compose a book in Markdown format and use Pandoc and Calibre to compile an Epub package including all of the book's source material. In effect, you can keep the source and product in the same file in your library; if you ever want to revise the product, you merely need to extract the source, make edits, and recompile.
