Syncro Soft Ltd, the producer of Oxygen XML Editor and Author, has announced the immediate availability of version 12 of its XML Editor and XML Author containing a comprehensive set of tools supporting all the XML related technologies. Oxygen combines content author features like the CSS driven Visual XML editor with a fully featured XML development environment. It has ready-to-use support for the main document frameworks DITA, DocBook, TEI and XHTML and also includes support for all XML Schema languages, XSLT/XQuery Debuggers, WSDL analyzer, XML Databases, XML Diff and Merge, Subversion client and more.
Version 12 of Oxygen XML improves the existing functionality, adds new features and, most importantly, enhances the user experience. A lot of effort was invested in minimizing memory usage and improving general performance.
The user interface has been redesigned and the Project view provides a simplified toolbar, an intuitive contextual menu and synchronized selection with the currently edited document.
A new Open/Find resource dialog has been added along with improvements in Outline and Attributes View.
The new version offers generic conditional text support for any XML documentation framework, including (but not limited to) DITA and DocBook. All you need to do is to define the profiling attributes and corresponding profiling values.
The new ePUB support allows you to change, extract, validate and process data stored in ePUB files. These capabilities allow developers to pack files into ePUB and also process data from ePUB documents using XSLT or XQuery.
In case of complex XSLT transformations, inspecting the entire stack of XSLT templates that were active at the time the output fragment was generated, speeds up the debugging process.
The new version adds the possibility to click an area of the output transformation text and see the templates stack which generated that particular output fragment.
Other new features include additions to the Author API, support for code templates, content annotation/comments in Author mode, DITA Map validation and completeness check, DITA 1.2 support, easy identification of XSL and XML Schema components references.
