Version 14.2 of <oXygen/> XML Editor adds important features for both XML
Development and XML Authoring.
On the XML development side, <oXygen/> completes the set of XML Schema 1.1
related features with full schema editing support and capabilities to generate XML
instances and schema documentation in accordance with this new W3C standard.
On the XML Authoring side, <oXygen/> streamlines XML reviewing by adding
support for highlights and a Review manager panel. Highlights help you focus on the
content you need to review and the Review manager panel presents all the changes,
comments and highlights from a document so you can quickly inspect and manage
Improvements were made for quickly finding resources in the
project by searching in their content or file paths. <oXygen/> offers these
advanced search capabilities by adding a dedicated view that supports complex text
search expressions, such as: multiple words, boolean operators, group searches, etc.
as well as XML-aware filters.
Documents from a Microsoft SharePoint server can now be
accessed using the Data Source Explorer view, where you can edit, check-in, or
check-out resources directly.
As usual, <oXygen/> XML updates many components to their
latest versions, and extends the API available to third party applications.
October 19, 2012
Version 14.1 of <oXygen/> XML Editor makes XML authoring available to
everybody, by allowing attributes to be edited directly in the Author
view through form like controls and placing actions directly in the document flow.
This expands the range of XML documents that can be edited visually from
text-centric to data oriented documents.
The built-in frameworks support was improved, especially the DITA support which
features better error reporting and a rename/move topic refactoring action.
The XML developers can use <oXygen/> XML to start experimenting with the new
XML Schema 1.1 standard, while the huge XML files support allows them to edit multi
As many partners depend now on <oXygen/> XML for their solutions, a lot of
effort was put into improving and expanding the API to allow them to develop more
integrated oXygen-powered applications.
As usual, <oXygen/> updates many components to their latest versions, the
embedded SVN client supports now Subversion 1.7 and the Eclipse plugin distribution
works with Eclipse version 4.2.
June 27, 2012
Version 14 marks a major step forward in the XML development support as it
introduces new concepts and functionality that change the way you develop XML and
The XML authoring competes now with word processors on ease of use and
functionality while providing all the benefits of having XML documents as the result
of your work - it has never been easier before to create, annotate and review XML
The new support for plugin and framework repositories allows <oXygen/> users to
discover and install extensions to the standard <oXygen/> functionality and enables
the <oXygen/> plugin and framework developers to easily deliver and update their
applications to <oXygen/> users.
The new version introduces subscription-based licenses for 1 year and 6 months
alongside the existing permanent licensing option.
January 12th, 2012
Version 13.2 introduces a new Syntax Highlight mechanism capable of handling

modules, a new TEI ODD framework, support for publishing DITA maps directly from a
CMS or other remote resources and a metrics report for DITA maps. Being a
maintenance release it has a focus also on fixing many small issues.
August 29th, 2011
Version 13 introduces <oXygen/> XML Developer as a new product in the
<oXygen/> products family. This aggregates all the XML development features
offering a cost effective tool for people that do not need the visual editing
support. <oXygen/> XML Editor is the union of <oXygen/> XML Developer and
<oXygen/> XML Author offering both XML development and XML authoring
Version 13 is focused on user interface improvements that concern visual XML
editing (Author), XML Diff, SVN support, attributes editing and the presentation of
results for validation, transformation, spell checking and search.
The Data Source Explorer view features drag and drop capabilities that allow
copy/move operations even between different databases.
The EPUB support was extended with visual rendering of EPUB specific files and
enhanced validation. New built-in transformation scenarios allow the conversion of
TEI documents to EPUB, ODF and DOCX.
DITA improvements include search references (where used) within a DITA map, map
validation under multiple condition sets (ditaval files), use of subject scheme
defined values and more.
The new version adds support for JSON document editing, validation and
conversion. Browser specific CSS extensions are now supported in the CSS
Starting with version 13 <oXygen/> requires Java 6 or later.
May 19, 2011
Version 12.2 of <oXygen/> XML introduces a number of unique development
features. It provides support for editing XSLT and XML Schema modules in the context
of a main XSLT, respectively main XML Schema file. For XML Schema visual editing it
introduces a Palette view that allows to easily create new schema components by
dragging them from this Palette view into the diagram. The support for the xml-model
processing instruction for schema association that was previewed at XML Prague is
available in 12.2 replacing the <oXygen/> specific processing instruction. The new
version includes also one of the most requested features: Ant integration - the
support for Ant transformation scenarios allows executing a target from an Ant
script. For XSLT 2.0 and XQuery transformations it is possible to specify parameter
values as XPath expressions when the engine allows that.
The EPUB support received special attention, oXygen offers now EPUB validation
by integrating EpubCheck, editing and validation for specific EPUB file types as
well as a number of general enhancements for working with archive-based formats. The
visual authoring feature improvements in change tracking, table editing,
transformations to new target formats and new API additions. The integrated Apache
SubversionTM client includes an improved Repositories view, offering a
new design, better actions workflow and an optimized repository access. Many of the
<oXygen/> components were updated to their latest version.
January 12, 2011
Version 12.1 of <oXygen/> XML adds new features like a smart paste action
that automatically converts content from office applications or from a web browser to
DITA, DocBook or TEI, improves the XML authoring in areas like reference management,
change tracking or the CSS rendering support and extends the API to incorporate
feedback from partners which integrate <oXygen/> with CMSs or other applications. On
the XML development side the new version introduces the Quick Assist helper to
facilitate access to search and refactoring actions plus a number of improvements to
the XSLT and XQuery debuggers and to the Relax NG schema editor. As always there were
continuous user interface and performance improvements and many of the <oXygen/>
components were updated to their latest versions.
September 14, 2010

development tools, the support for large documents and the SVN Client.
December 17, 2009
Version 11.1 of <oXygen/> XML Editor improves the XML authoring capabilities,
the support for XML development and also a number of core features. The visual XML
authoring now uses schema information to provide intelligent editing actions that
help keep the document valid and provide a better editing experience. The new
compact representation of tags and the quick up/down navigation features improve the
ergonomics and the usability. <oXygen/> XML Editor can use any XQJ compliant XQuery
processor for XQuery transformations, different error levels and external references
can be specified for Schematron messages and the XProc support was improved with
better editing and execution. The XML format and indent operation can use DTD/schema
information to provide better formatting and the find and replace is now XML-aware
and can accept XPath filtering to delimit the search scope.
Starting with version 11.1 the diff and merge support from <oXygen/> XML Editor
is available also as a separate application, <oXygen/> XML Diff.

The support for very large documents was improved to handle documents in the
200MB range in the editor and 10GB in the large files viewer, the SVN support was
upgraded with new features and a number of processors and frameworks were updated to
their latest versions.
<oXygen/> XML Editor 11.0 contains also an experimental integration with EMC
Documentum Content Management System.
June 29, 2009
Version 10.3 of <oXygen/> XML Editor improves both the XML Authoring and
the XML Development capabilities. As a result of user feedback the <oXygen/> XML
Author API was reorganized and extended with additional functionality. There are
various improvements to the existing frameworks (DITA, DocBook, TEI, etc.) like
automatic ID generation or DITA aware search and replace. An important new XML
development feature is the Component Dependencies View that presents a tree of
component dependencies starting with a specified component for XSLT, XML Schema, Relax
NG and NVDL. The new version also integrates the Saxon SA XQuery Update functionality
and updates a number of components to their latest versions.
