The following editions are available:
Updates in V11.2
- Author Component Integration
An Author page is available as a component that can be integrated in your Java application or applet. All features available for editing in the <oXygen/> XML Editor Author page are also available in the Author component.
- Automatic Support for Reusable Components
A fragment of a topic can be extracted in a separate file for reuse in different topics. The component can be reused by inserting an element with a conref attribute where the content of the component is needed. This works without any configuration and supports automatically any DITA specialization.
- Content References Management
The DITA framework includes actions for adding, editing and removing a content reference (conref, conkeyref, conrefend attributes) to/from an existing element.
- Fast Loading of DITA Maps
A new schema caching mechanism allows to quickly open large DITA Maps and their referred topics.
- Preserve Formatting for Unchanged Elements
A new option allows formating and saving only the modified elements. This keeps the formating of the other elements for easy comparing of the two versions of the file in a versioning system.
- Update the Outline View
The current selection can be accessed and set in the Outline view from custom extensions of an Author framework.
- Customize the Outline View
The popup menu and the displaying and filtering of the tree nodes can be customized in the Outline view with an extension of an Author framework.
- Customize the Breadcrumb
The text displayed in the node list of the Breadcrumb and the popup menu of the Breadcrumb can be customized with an extension of an Author framework.
- Update the Status Bar
The user can be notified about the status or the success of operations by updating the <oXygen/> status bar. This is usually preferable to displaying a dialog box.
- Improved Handling of Large Documents
The support for large documents has been improved. Now the opening and editing of large documents is faster also when the line wrap option is enabled. <oXygen/> can now open documents with very long lines by using automatic line wrapping.
- Customizable Font Styles for Syntax Highlighting
A font style (bold/italic) and a background color can be set for any token (tag, text, etc.) that is displayed in an editor in Text mode.
- Debug XPath Expressions
Now the XSLT Debugger is capable to step into XPath 2.0 expressions when using the bundled Saxon-HE/PE/EE XSLT processor.
- XQuery 1.1 Transformations
Saxon 9 EE bundled with <oXygen/> can be used to run XQuery 1.1 transformations.
- New Spell Checker
Hunspell (the engine used by OpenOffice, Mozilla and others) is now used by <oXygen/> for spell checking. <oXygen/> ships dictionaries for English, German, French and Spanish but users can install any from the almost 100 available dictionaries. The old spell checking engine remains available.
- Hex Viewer
<oXygen/> includes a hex viewer.
- Workspace Access Plugin
A new type of plugin was added. This plugin provides support for customizing the menus, toolbars and views of the application and for opening and closing documents. It is active in both Text mode and Author mode of all opened documents.
- Mark Resource Read-Only
A resource opened with a custom protocol plugin can be marked as read-only. It can be used when opening resources from a CMS (Content Management System).
- Open Redirect Plugin
This type of plugin is useful for opening more than one file with only one open action. For example when a zip archive or an ODF file or an OOXML file is opened in the Archive Browser view the plugin can decide to open also a file from the archive in a new XML editor panel, like the document.xml main file from an OOXML file archive.
- Faster Working Copy Load Time
A working copy is cached, so when it is loaded next time in the Working Copy view, the operation will be much faster than in the previous versions of Syncro SVN Client.
- Automatic Refresh of the Working Copy
The working copy is automatically refreshed every time Syncro SVN Client gains focus, if changes are detected in the file system. This is done in order to update the state of the resources modified by external applications.
- More Responsive Repository Browsing
You can configure the repository connections timeout and stop non-responsive repository browsing operations.
- Better Handling for Obstructed Resources
Operations correctly take into account obstructed resources.
- Print or Save as Image a Revision Graph
Generated revision graphs can be printed or saved as images.
- Updated DITA Open Toolkit
DITA Open Toolkit was updated to version 1.5.1 M1. It includes a speed improvement implemented by caching the grammar pool used for transforming DITA files.
- Updated TEI P5 framework
The TEI P5 schemas were updated to version 1.6.0. The TEI XSL stylesheets were updated to version 5.29.
- Updated Saxon 9 Processor
The Saxon 9 XSLT/XQuery processor was updated to version 188.8.131.52.
- Updated Libxml and Libxslt Libraries
The Libxml library was updated to version 2.7.6. The Libxslt library was updated to version 1.1.26.
- Updated Calabash XProc processor
The Calabash XProc was updated to version 0.9.19.
- Updated CSS Validator
