<oXygen/> XML Editor version 16.1 is available

Tue, 7 Oct 2014 10:10:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, announced the immediate availability of version 16.1 of its Oxygen XML Editor, Oxygen XML Author and Oxygen XML Developer products containing a comprehensive set of tools supporting all the XML-related technologies.

Version 16.1 of oXygen XML Editor adds improvements to both the XML development and XML authoring functionality. Fixes for validation issues, such as adding a missing attribute or deleting an unexpected element are offered automatically by the Quick Fixes support. The XSLT support helps you better understand what each XSLT instruction does by presenting associated annotations with the description of the instruction and links to the specification.

The XML authoring mode received a number of improvements to the table support, track changes functionality, generic editing, as well as to the DITA specific actions. The WebHelp output that can be obtained from DITA and DocBook documents is marked with the HTML5 document type and videos are rendered using the HTML5 video element.

You can find patterns within an EPUB, OOXML, ODF or any ZIP archive by running XPath queries on all the documents from ZIP-based archives.

The Eclipse plugin version of oXygen XML Editor was updated to support Eclipse 4.4, the SVN support was updated to work with Apache Subversion 1.8, and many component libraries were updated to their latest stable versions. The accessibility was improved by automatically using colors defined by the high contrast theme in Windows when it becomes the current color theme.

<oXygen/> XML Editor version 15.2 is available

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 10:10:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, announced the immediate availability of version 15.2 of its Oxygen XML Editor, Oxygen XML Author and Oxygen XML Developer products containing a comprehensive set of tools supporting all the XML related technologies.

Version 15.2 of oXygen XML Editor improves the support for developing Schematron schemas by adding intelligent search and refactoring actions, in-context editing and validation, hierarchy/dependencies views, improved error reporting and more.

You can easily experiment with the new XML Schema 1.1 recommendation as oXygen handles the attributes that specify the minimum and maximum XML Schema version directly within the schema document. Editing XML documents visually is a lot easier now with the intelligent content completion and paste functionality that were enhanced to automatically look in nearby positions to determine a valid location for the new content.

You can create more interactive and user friendly interfaces for editing XML documents taking advantage of the new CSS level 3 and level 4 features supported in oXygen or using the new text area form control extension. Publishing DITA content features syntax-highlighting inside code blocks and the DITA 1.3 support debuts with the introduction of the new troubleshooting specialization.

One of the most important XML development feature of oXygen is the support for working automatically with modules by defining the master files, the documents that include/import modules. This was previously available only in the standalone distribution of oXygen and version 15.2 brings the same functionality also to the Eclipse plugin distribution.

As always, oXygen keeps you up-to-date, the new version featuring updated components including Saxon, Calabash, and the TEI stylesheets, support for MarkLogic 7 and Subversion 1.8 repositories. There is a large number of API additions in response to feedback provided by our partners which integrated the oXygen XML authoring technology into their solutions.

Acsone signs a strategic partnership with Componize and Syncro Soft, the publisher of oXygen XML Editor

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 14:00:00 EDT

Brussels and Luxembourg, September 6th, 2013 – Acsone S. A./N. V., an independent IT services company, signed strategic partnership agreements with Syncro Soft, the publisher of oXygen XML Editor, and with Componize, the leading DITA component content management system on top of Alfresco.

“This three-party partnership supports and completes our offering in structured content management solutions regarding quality and regulation processes, fund information management, budget management and technical documentation in general. Joining our technical and commercial strengths reinforces our presence in Belgium and Luxemburg and offers a unique opportunity to our customers“, says Philippe Fontaine, Managing Director of Acsone. oXygen XML Editor is the best XML editor available. It supports schema driven content completion and sports a highly user-friendly authoring mode where most if not all XML tags and attributes may be hidden away from the novice user. Apart from a superior standard compliance, oXygen XML Editor is also known for its excellent integration with the most used content management systems, XML databases and relational databases.

Componize is a leading component content management system preconfigured for DITA that optimizes the authoring, management and publishing of structured and semi-structured content such as product documentation or learning content. Combining enterprise-wide collaboration, ease of use, scalability and an open architecture, it provides the full range of features that organizations need today for their content strategy. The users spend less time organizing, searching for and re-doing content and more time creating real value through better reuse and faster multi-channel production. Componize is today modernizing information development for AMD, Merck and SAP, among others.

“We have the chance of covering regions with many industries and service industries. For meeting their ever shrinking time to market constraints and the ever growing regulatory restrictions, they have to streamline their document production chains and to ensure the traceability of any document dispatched to their contacts or made publicly available. In this context, the end-users must be freed as much as possible of any technical hurdle. With Componize, they no longer worry about where to find the structured content they need and how to keep the history of their changes. All assets are stored by Componize in a central place and it does a very good job at keeping track of all references between the assets even if they change over time. Combined with the user-friendly and powerful capabilities of oXygen XML Editor, Acsone is now capable of delivering to the customer a turnkey solution for producing high quality documents with an intelligent and reusable content.”, says Stéphane Bidoul, Operations Director of Acsone.

“Adapting IT systems to overcome the challenges we face in today's business world can be daunting for companies. However, Acsone and Componize's expertise in streamlining content management and collaborative processing helps businesses to proactively address and overcome the rapid changes required to respond to the growing complexities of operational processes. Syncro Soft are proud to share the same strong business ethics to help deliver a competitively priced solution which, and most importantly, can be easily modeled around the specific needs of the customer”, says Sarah Draper, Director of Channel Sales & Marketing at Syncro Soft Ltd.

“We are proud to call Acsone our new Partner” says Jean-Luc Borie, co-founder and CEO of Componize. “Their team has over 20 years’ experience in solving the challenges organizations face in producing and maintaining complex business documents, and a very strong presence in Belgium and Luxembourg. We know Componize customers will be able to truly maximize the potential of the product when they’re in Acsone’s care.”

“There are several ways of doing intelligent content management ranging from a fully hand-tailored development to the customization of a commercial off-the-shelf solution”, confirms Jean-Paul Daisomont, Line Manager in Luxembourg, “oXygen XML Editor is the best of breed tool to edit effortlessly intelligent content structured in XML. It offers an excellent support for DITA and DocBook. It is easily customisable and thanks to its Java roots it can be run on virtually any modern platform, including Componize. With these partnerships, our customers can benefit of a very competitively priced solution that can be adapted very quickly to their needs thanks to the competency of our engineers in intelligent content management”. Starting from today, oXygen XML Editor will be the preferred choice for all the structured content management solutions promoted by Acsone for its customers. It will also be used as the primary IDE at all the XML and DITA training sessions given by Acsone.

Several medium-sized companies or departments have not yet any experience in a content production chain. Developing a fully custom-made solution is too expensive and takes too much time. Acsone engineers have the required knowledge to use Componize, oXygen XML Editor and DITA for this purpose. These solutions perfectly match the needs for quickly sharing and publishing documentation to multiple channels while keeping it in a perennial format that equally facilitates its use by humans and machines.

 

About DITA

DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is an XML-based OASIS standard aimed at authoring, producing and delivering technical information. It is easily extendable to cover any domains. The architectural archetype behind DITA is the decomposition of a document into the smallest possible blocs that are still meaningful. These blocs are strongly typed according to a few design principles. There is an inheritance hierarchy where the uppermost types are the generic “topic” and the “map” to associate several topics in a document. The “concept”, the “task” and the “reference” are refinements of the “topic”. New type specialisations can be added as needed to cover new information domains. Many software companies offer solutions around DITA. Companies like AMD, IBM, Oracle, SAP, Agfa Healthcare, Sanofi, SWIFT or Mastercard Worldwide have already adopted them and the DITA usage in Europe is constantly growing.

Syncro Soft is a member of the W3C.

 

About Componize

In 2008, Jean-Luc Borie and Frank Shipley, two veterans of enterprise information systems, founded Componize Software with a key insight into the future of content management and document management, in particular. They noticed that managers were increasingly frustrated with the limitations of their current CMSes with regard to the changing demands of their customers and end-users. They designed Componize. Componize's first versions were built for new and emerging technology architectures such as DITA.

Within three years of Componize’s first product launch, the wave of DITA adoption in enterprises had grown dramatically. The team was well positioned to answer the call, with one of the easiest and most effective DITA CMS solutions on the market. In fact, Componize is the only DITA CMS specifically designed for new technology architectures like DITA. Componize quickly secured early marquee clients including AMD, NXP and SAP, among others. They’re integrating Componize into their existing CMS programs or launching entirely new programs in order to maximize the benefits of Componize’s DITA CMS.

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 XML to start experimenting with the new XML Schema 1.1 standard, while the huge XML files support allows them to edit multi GB documents. As many partners depend now on 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, 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.

<oXygen/> XML Editor version 14.0 is available

Wed, 27 Jun 2012 12:10:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, today announced the immediate availability of version 14 of its Oxygen XML Editor, Oxygen XML Author and Oxygen XML Developer products containing a comprehensive set of tools supporting all the XML related technologies, and the establishment of a wholly-owned UK subsidiary of its business.

Version 14 marks a major step forward in the XML development support as it introduces new concepts and functionality that change the way XML and XML-related applications are developed. The XML authoring competes now with word processors on ease of use and functionality while providing all the benefits of having XML documents - it has never been easier before to create, annotate and review XML content. The built-in support for plugin and framework repositories allows Oxygen users to discover and install Oxygen extensions and enables the Oxygen developers to easily distribute and update their plugins and frameworks.

Since the company was founded in 1998, Syncro Soft has expanded its client base to over 35,000 customers in more than 100 countries. This substantial growth has resulted in the decision to expand its presence in the UK that will allow the company to be closer to existing customers as well as to engage with potential new users and partners.

"We are pleased to announce the establishment of our newest subsidiary in the UK," said Stefan Vasile, CEO of Syncro Soft. "Whilst we have been active in the UK market for over 9 years, we recently took the decision to upgrade our presence in the UK by establishing our own subsidiary so that we can offer better support and service to our end-users and channel partners."

"Our physical presence in UK will serve to strengthen Oxygen XML's global reach. Our goal is to provide our current and future customer base in the UK and European markets with excellent local support" said Sarah Draper, Managing Director of the UK subsidiary. "We will be focusing significant attention on Oxygen XML Editor growth in this market, and we look forward to building new partnerships and engaging with new customers".

Thu, 21 Jul 2011 11:00:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of Oxygen XML Diff, has announced the immediate availability of version 4.0 of its product.

Version 4.0 of the Oxygen XML Diff introduces a new unified two-level changes presentation concept, a redesigned application layout and an improved main working area.

For the complete list of features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_diff_and_merge.html#new-version

New in version 4.0

* Unified Two-Level Diff

Changes inside documents are now displayed using two levels of granularity: a coarser one which displays blocks of changes and a finer one that highlights the actual changes inside blocks.

* New File Comparison Representation and Functionality

The visual representation of changes was improved: new highlight colors and cleaner change delimiters reduce clutter in the central working area and allow you to focus on a specific change.

* Enhanced Changes Navigation

Navigation operations were updated to take into account the unified two-level diff. They can jump from one block of changes to the other and they also step into blocks passing through each actual change.

* Improved Changes Management

Merging operations are faster and offer more flexibility, being able to act both on blocks of changes and single modifications.

* Redesigned Application's General Layout

Much effort was put into redesigning the application layout in order to offer better ergonomics and improved workflow: a redesigned toolbar with reworked icons help improve the user experience. Also, an in-place widget provides quicker access to content-dependent actions that allow you to copy, replace or delete the content of any difference.

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.

For the complete list of features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_diff_and_merge.html#new-version

New in version 3.0

Improved compare algorithms
All compare algorithms were improved. They use less memory, so you can compare larger files. Also, the accuracy of XML Fast algorithm was increased.

Diff algorithm strength
A diff algorithm now has several levels of strength: a high strength setting increases the chance to obtain all the differences between the compared resources, but consumes more memory. Low strength levels allow you to obtain partial comparison results, even if the number of differences between the files is larger. This setting is available in the Options page.

Filter pairs of identical files
"Show Only Modifications" action omits the identical files and directories from the Diff Directories list. This reduces the clutter and allows you to spot differences with ease.

Status bar in Diff Directories window
The status bar presents the number of differences, the diff algorithm and the current status of the diff operation.

Flow of differences in Diff Directories window
You can navigate through the list of modifications, even across different files. When the Diff Files tool is started from the Diff Directories, the Go to Next Modification action allows you to navigate beyond the last modification from the currently compared files and into the next pair of different files.

<oXygen/> XML Editor 9.2 is available

Thu, 22 May 2008 10:10:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of Oxygen XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 9.2 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

Version 9.2 introduces a new XML Author edition specially tuned for content authors providing a well designed interface for XML editing by keeping only the relevant authoring features. The major additions in Oxygen XML Editor 9.2 are related to the WYSIWYG-like editing support and in particular to the DITA support. The general visual editing improvements include displaying the resolved content in the editor and navigation through links. With the new DITA features that include a new DITA map editor, actions for inserting conref links, a tight integration of the latest version of the DITA Open Toolkit, Oxygen XML Editor becomes the leading DITA editor and the easiest to use. Other improvements are browsing of XML databases using WebDAV connections, better handling of Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) text, support for the Intel XML Software Suite and multiple component updates.

For the complete list of new features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/index.html#new-version

New in version 9.2:

Oxygen now offers a version specially suited for XML authoring enhancing the authors productivity by providing a clean and easy to use interface. The new Oxygen XML Author is available both as a separate product (standalone and Eclipse plugin) and also as a part of Oxygen XML Editor.

The DITA support reaches maturity with the new additions in version 9.2. The new DITA maps manager allows viewing and editing DITA map files and also acts as a project manager allowing to open different topics for editing. The tool chain for generating DITA output in a multitude of formats (XHTML, PDF, HTML, JavaHelp, Eclipse Help, DocBook, etc.) is ready to use out of the box as Oxygen tightly integrates the latest version of the DITA Open Toolkit through its normal transformation scenarios support. There is also special support for easily inserting content references.

Version 9.2 provides also significant improvements for the generic WYSIWYG editing support. The authors can have an overview of the actual document with the included/referred content presented in the editor. The support for navigation using links makes going from a reference to the referred content just a click away.

To enhance productivity with XML schema validation and XSLT transformation using Intel XML Software Suite, Oxygen XML Editor 9.2 provides special support to easily configure and use the Intel XML Software Suite in its normal development work flow.

There are also improvements in the support for XML Schema, Schematron, XML databases and XML editing.

<oXygen/> XML Editor 9.1 is available

Tue, 18 Dec 2007 11:10:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of Oxygen XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 9.1 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

With a new approach to XML authoring, Oxygen XML Editor 9 makes easier than ever before to work with XML frameworks (DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML, etc). The CSS-based visual XML editor introduced by version 9 allows WYSIWYG like editing of XML documents. Version 9.1 adds a number of improvements, the main additions being related with the WYSIWYG like XML editor and with the WebDAV support. It contains also support for SOAP 1.2 and some updated components.

For the complete list of new features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/index.html#new-version

New in version 9.1:

When visually editing XML documents it is always a challenge to easily edit XML attributes. The new version solves this problem by allowing a quick and easy way with the new in place editing for XML attributes. The in place editing popup can be triggered with a configurable shortcut (by default that is Alt+Enter). Both XML attribute names and possible values can be quickly selected by typing their prefixes.

The visual Author mode from Oxygen XML editor was also enhanced with support for bookmarks. These allow quick positioning in large documents and working in multiple locations of multiple documents.

DITA map documents can be easily converted to HTML or PDF. A new pre-configured scenario was added for the default DITA configuration for transforming a DITA Map document to HTML. The already existing DITA to PDF scenario can handle now also DITA map files so you can use that to convert a DITA map to PDF.

The WebDAV support has been improved by adding WebDAV locking support. This ensures that only you can modify that resource on the WebDAV server. If another user tries to edit a locked resource s/he will receive a warning message containing the name of the lock owner. The resource is locked when you open it and released automatically when the resource is closed.

Oxygen XML editor now supports SOAP 1.2. The SOAP version is detected from the WSDL definition file and the appropriate headers are set in the SOAP request. The SOAP 1.2 envelope is validated against a SOAP 1.2 XML Schema.

Several components were updated. The TEI framework was updated to the latest P5 1.0 schemas, DITA Open Toolkit to the latest 1.4.1 and Saxon B XSLT processor from Saxonica to the latest 9.0.0.2 version. Oxygen XML editor supports also the Saxon SA 9.0.0.2 (that requires a separate license from Saxonica).

Pricing and Availability
<oXygen/> XML Editor and XSLT Debugger is available immediately in three editions:
  • Multi-platform Enterprise license costs USD 275.00

<oXygen/> XML Editor 9 is available

Fri, 2 Nov 2007 17:14:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of Oxygen XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 9.0 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

The main feature of version 9.0 is a CSS-based visual XML editor allowing WYSIWYG like editing of XML documents. With an innovative approach to XML authoring Oxygen allows you to work with XML frameworks (DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML, etc) easier than ever before. Version 9 adds a new concept called Document Type that allow users to provide ready to use support for a framework or an XML language and share that with other users. This version also brings improved error reporting for validation against Relax NG schemas and Schematron, additional side view helpers, some component updates and a number of other features.

For the complete list of new features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/index.html#new-version

New in version 9.0:

The WYSIWYG like rendering of the visual XML editor is driven by CSS stylesheets conforming with the W3C CSS 2.1 specification so that users are not locked into a custom format. Some enhancements introduced by the W3C CSS 3 working draft like CSS XML namespaces and the attr function are also supported. The tagless editor comes with ready to use support for largely used XML frameworks: DITA, DocBook 4 / DocBook 5, TEI P4 / TEI P5 and XHTML. Both the CALS and HTML table models are supported.

The new Document Type concept allows to easily share between users preconfigured support for an XML framework or language consisting of default schema for validation, CSS stylesheets for WYSIWYG editing, custom actions, document templates, XML catalogs and transformation scenarios.

Incomplete error reports in validation against a Relax NG schemas like "required attributes missing", "required elements missing" or "unfinished element" were updated to report exactly what XML attributes or elements are missing and what is expected to finish the element. The diagnostics messages issued by a Schematron schema are displayed together with the other validation errors. Schematron report messages are treated as warnings.

The new outliner implementations for CSS and XQuery allow you to see immediately the structure of your CSS and XQuery documents. Two new views, the XML Elements View and the Entities View allow to easily insert new elements and entities in your XML files.

There were many small but useful new features in Oxygen XML editor version 9, to take an example the spell checking is aware of xml:lang values and this allows to check the spelling in documents that contain content in more than one language.

<oXygen/> XML Editor 8.2 is available

Mon, 7 May 2007 11:00:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL,the producer of <oXygen/> XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 8.2 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

The key word for Oxygen XML Editor version 8.2 is innovation. It brings the first XQuery debugger against a native XML database allowing users of the MarkLogic 3.2 database to debug their XQuery code based on the new MarkLogic Server 3.2 XQuery debugging API. Oxygen is the first tool announcing ISO Schematron support covering also ISO Schematron embedded in XML Schema or Relax NG, abstract patterns and included Schematron schemas. Oxygen version 8.2 is the first XML IDE that enables working with modules (XML external entities, included/imported stylesheets, XQuery modules, etc.). You can validate the current module in the context it is used from and also perform multiple validation operations in a single action using the new validation scenarios feature. To the main features list we can add also the capability to view very large files with sizes larger than a Gigabyte and multi-line find/replace support. There are also other enhancements, fixes and component updates.

For the complete list of new features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/index.html#new-version

New in version 8.2:

XQuery debugging was available until now only against standalone engines. After a close cooperation with MarkLogic we are happy to provide the first XQuery debuggind tool supporting a native XML database. Queries executed on a MarkLogic 3.2 database can now be debugged in the XQuery Debugger perspective of Oxygen. The following views are displayed in this perspective: Breakpoints, XWatch, Context, Variables and Stack. The debugger is able to show debugging information also inside XQuery modules.

With oXygen you get complete support for XML related technologies, you get also support for the latest technologies. Thus version 8.2 adds ISO Schematron support. This covers ISO Schematron schema editing, ISO Schematron rules embedded in XML Schema or Relax NG, abstract patterns and included Schematron schemas.

Validation scenarios are a very powerful feature and they solve a number of important issues when working with XML and XML related technologies. They allow working with modules and performing multiple validations in one action. By default the validation of a document is done by using a processor (XML parser, XSLT transformer, XQuery engine, etc.) to analyze the current file. The validation scenario allows to specify a set of files to validate and for each file what processor to use and whether or not to perform continuous validation. Thus if you work on a module you can set the validation on the master file, the file that refers that module. Also you can perform multiple validations with different processors or on different files.

Very large files (larger than a Gigabyte) which cannot be opened in the editor panel can be viewed in the Large File Viewer without loading the entire file in the memory.

The Find/Replace is enhanced with multi-line capabilities. Both the find and the replace expressions can cover multiple lines of the document. This together with the regular expressions and XPath filtering support allow powerful changes to be applied on the document content.

Pricing and Availability
<oXygen/> XML Editor and XSLT Debugger is available immediately in three editions:

Fri, 17 Nov 2006 16:06:00 GMT

Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of <oXygen/> XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 8.0 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

Version 8.0 of the <oXygen/> XML Editor adds as main features a spreadsheet-like XML Grid Editor, management support for both XML and relational databases: Berkeley XML Database, eXist, IBM DB2 PureXML, MarkLogic, Microsoft SQLServer 2005, Oracle 10g R2, RainingData TigerLogic XDMS, SoftwareAG Tamino and XHive XML Database, options and transformation scenarios that can be stored into the project file and support for NVDL (Namespace-based Validation Dispatching Language) scripts.

For the complete list of new features please visit http://www.oxygenxml.com/index.html#new-version

New in version 8.0:

The new <oXygen/>'s grid editor allows you to edit repetitive XML content in a special layout similar to a spreadsheet application, without the need to interact with the markup. Using the new Database perspective you can browse tables or collections from databases, execute XQuery or SQL queries, inspect or modify data, specify XML Schemas for the XML fields and collections. The database support includes many of the popular servers, operating either as native XML storage: Tamino, XHive, MarkLogic, TigerLogic, eXist, Berkeley or mixed, as relational and XML at the same time: DB2, SQLServer, Oracle.

The transformation scenarios can now be stored in the project file. This simplifies the scenario management by attaching only the relevant scenarios to a project. Furthermore, you can pass over to your teammates a set of pre-configured project scenarios. You can specify both the transformation XML source and the stylesheet locations, it is not required anymore for the edited document to be one of the transformation XML source or stylesheet. This allows editing a module and invoking a transformation on the master files. You can save the current editor layout (what views and toolbars are visible and their position) and reuse it later, or even share it with your team by taking advantage of the new support for saving/loading the editor layouts.

You can edit Namespace-based Validation Dispatching Language scripts using the new NVDL Editor. <oXygen/> distributes an NVDL implementation allowing the validation of XML documents against NVDL scripts. The support includes validation on demand, continuous validation, validation with external schema, batch validation from the project, etc. The content completion is now able to use NVDL Scripts to offer proposals; this makes possible editing documents with complex structure, that contain multiple languages defined by different schemata, for instance XHTML with embedded XForms. You can specify almost all of the <oXygen/> settings at project level. This makes possible to pass along with the project XML Catalogs settings, transformation scenarios, formatting options, validation options, editor layout, etc.

Other new features include accurate XML error reporting and accurate XPath result elements locations, support for the Secure FTP (SFTP) Protocol, better Integration of the XML Instance Generator, validation engine detection for XSLT and XQuery, improved support for schemas with embedded Schematron rules. Several components were updated: Xerces-J parser was updated to version 2.8.1, Saxon 8B XSLT processor from Saxonica was updated to the latest 8.8 version and the DocBook support includes the DocBook 5.0 RELAX NG Schemas. <oXygen/> supports also the Saxon8SA 8.8 (that requires a separate license from Saxonica).

Version 7.2 of the <oXygen/> XML Editor adds as main features a complete Subversion client, support for flattening XML Schemata, an XML Schema instance generator, integration with the X-Hive/DB, MarkLogic and TigerLogic XML databases, editing actions on the diagram, rename refactoring action and search references/declarations actions in XML Schema and Relax NG schemata editors.

<oXygen/> makes easier the document sharing between content authors by including a Subversion (SVN) client. The SVN client allows you to browse repositories, check for changes, review, merge and commit changes, update your working copy and examine the revision history. Schema support enhancements include support for flattening XML Schema, rename refactoring action, find declarations or references of XML Schema components. There are available new editing actions in the contextual menu of the full model diagram view allowing the addition of new elements and editing their attributes. A new regular expressions builder has been added that helps to construct and test regular expressions allowed in XML Schema restriction patterns. You can now quickly generate a large set of XML document samples based on a given XML Schema using the XML Schema instance generator tool.

The HTML documentation for XML Schema has been improved. The generated schema diagram images contain image maps allowing to click directly on a diagram component to navigate to the documentation for that component. The documentation of a definition includes an "Used By" section with links to the other definitions which refer to it. Navigation is possible in both directions between a schema and the included/imported ones. The support for XQuery execution over an XML native database was extended by adding the following engines: X-Hive/DB XML Database, MarkLogic XML Database and TigerLogic XML Database. With the integrated xqDoc tool you can generate HTML documentation for XQuery files with just a couple of clicks. One or more input XQuery files are accepted and the function namespaces are configurable. Other new features include the possibility to generate a brief documentation listing the services, bindings, port types and messages defined in a WSDL file, the addition of a dockable view called Dynamic Help that changes its content automatically to the relevant help page for the focused editor, view or dialog and support to configure the background color for syntax highlighting tokens. [Version 7.2 Build 2006060615]

oXygen XML Editor 6.2 is available

Mon, 19 Sep 2005 13:00:00 GMT
Syncro Soft SRL, the producer of oXygen XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 6.2 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and XSLT Debugger. Version 6.2 of the oXygen XML Editor gives a whole new editing experience with the introduction of a dockable framework that allows free configuration of the editor layout. The views inside the oXygen window are dockable, floating and hideable. They can be dragged and docked to the margin of any other view or the margin of the main window so that they form any desired layout. Relax NG content completion was improved. Element values specified in the Relax NG schema are presented as content completion proposals in documents based on that schema. Also the pattern names defined in the Relax NG schema are presented as possible values for pattern references. When configuring parameters for an XSLT transformation oXygen will present automatically the available stylesheet parameters together with information about them extracted from the stylesheet. The TEI and DocBook stylesheets contain such documentation making a lot easier understand what a parameter is intended for and to specify parameter values. Improvements are made on XSLT debugger part including the possiblity to specify conditional breakpoints, presenting the nodesets and tree fragments into tree views (useful especially in debugging stylesheeets that keep intermediary results in variables like DocBook for instance) and capture multiple outputs for XSLT 2.0. The results of different XPath queries performed on the same document are now presented in different views for accessing and comparing them easily. The latest Xerces XML parser (2.7.1) from the Apache Foundation and the new Saxon 8.5.1 parser for XSLT 2.0 were integrated into oXygen.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
