I have some problems with Ubuntu 19.10. There is no program I can link 
to the favorite menu and no way otherwise to run this from the gui as 
far as I can see.

And if I use a terminal window to go to the Oxygen folder and run 
./oxygen.sh I get a list of errors before the program starts:

*espeo at espeo-HP-EliteBook-840-G5:~/Oxygen XML Editor 22$ ./oxygen.sh
WARNING: An illegal reflective access operation has occurred
WARNING: Illegal reflective access by ro.sync.net.protocol.Installer

WARNING: Please consider reporting this to the maintainers of 
WARNING: Use --illegal-access=warn to enable warnings of further illegal 
reflective access operations
WARNING: All illegal access operations will be denied in a future release

*Will this be corrected soon? Or should I go back to Oxygen 21? Does 
anyone know?

> Author, Developer, Web Author, WebHelp, PDF Chemistry, and version 2.0 
> of Oxygen Content Fusion.
> https://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_editor/whats_new.html
> Simultaneously, Oxygen Feedback, a new comments management platform, 
> has progressed through the Beta phase and it is now available for 
> commercial use, while the new Oxygen Publishing Engine offers 
> automation support for transforming DITA content into WebHelp, PDF, 
> EPUB, and plain HTML output from your integration scripts.
> This release offers an incredibly robust set of new features and 
> improvements and the seamless synthesis of all the products makes 
> Oxygen the most comprehensive solution available for XML authoring, 
> development, publishing, and collaboration. The latest additions and 
> enhancements focus on productivity, performance, security, 
> cost-efficiency, and simplicity.
> =================================================================
> New features and improvements added in Oxygen XML 
> Editor/Author/Developer version 22.0 include:
> * DITA authoring enhancements include a new DITA Perspective that 
> provides an optimal UI environment for working with DITA projects, 
> media resources are now presented in the DITA Reusable Components 
> View, various improvements to search and refactoring operations, and 
> much more.
> * Support was added for the DITA-OT project file, used to define all 
> the contexts and deliverables for a DITA publication project. Some of 
> its benefits include simplified publishing using a single 
> configuration file, the possibility to share and reuse project 
> configurations, project-level validation support, and enhanced authoring.
> * DITA publishing to PDF using CSS was updated with various new 
> parameters and styling features, and it is now possible to transform a 
> single DITA topic to CSS-based PDF output.
> * The HTML5 editing support was enhanced to be as robust as with 
> XHTML. You can now edit HTML documents in the Author visual mode even 
> if they are not XML well-formed. Support was also added for content 
> completion in CSS or JS code embedded in HTML, code templates, 
> formatting, XPath queries, and much more.
> * The built-in Markdown editor is more powerful than ever. You can now 
> apply business rule checks using real-time Schematron validation, and 
> the editor now has synchronized scrolling between the source pane and 
> preview pane, which offers the possibility of previewing the Markdown 
> content as HTML, DITA, or Lightweight DITA, with the latter two 
> facilitating the use of Markdown in the DITA ecosystem.
> * State-of-the-art JSON tools were added for converting XSD to JSON 
> Schema and generating JSON Schema from sample JSON files. Further 
> improvements refined the content completion assistant, validation, and 
> syntax highlighting features for JSON documents.
> * The user interface is now also available in the Chinese language.
> * As always, this release includes numerous other requested features, 
> API additions, bug fixes, and component updates.
> =================================================================
> New features added in Oxygen XML Web Author version 22.0.0 include:
> * Structured auto-correct, to automatically expand text patterns to 
> corresponding XML markup. For example, prefixing some text with "*" or 
> "-" in DITA will generate a list item.
> * Easier and more efficient way to insert content references or cross 
> references directly from the target document preview.
> * DITA users will benefit from improvements to the behavior of certain 
> keyboard shortcuts, a new CSS style, and a new action for defining 
> DITA variables.
> * Toolbar actions were added to the Markdown editor to make it easier 
> to insert syntax and real-time validation of Markdown documents 
> against a custom Schematron file is now possible.
> * It is now easier to reuse content in DocBook documents with new 
> toolbar actions for XInclude and inserting links.
> * The user interface is available also in the Chinese language.
> * Various new APIs, performance and stability improvements, and more.
> =================================================================
> New features added in Oxygen Content Fusion version 2.0 include:
> * Subject Matter Experts can now create new Content Fusion tasks 
> directly in the browser interface and then share them with the 
> documentation team to be integrated into their projects.
> * A DITAVAL file can now be attached to a task so that content is 
> filtered based upon its defined conditional profiling attribute values.
> * Resources (such as images or CSS files) referenced in XML files are 
> detected and optionally can be automatically included in new Content 
> Fusion tasks.
> * The built-in visual editor (Oxygen XML Web Author) was updated to 
> its latest version.
> * Various security improvements and interface enhancements were added.
> =================================================================
> Improvements and updates added for Oxygen PDF Chemistry version 22.0 
> include:
> * The overall performance of the Chemistry processor was improved up 
> to 20%.
> * It is now possible to display change bars to mark some revised 
> elements in the content.
> * Hyphenated words are now searchable, and can be copied from a PDF 
> reader and pasted in their original form, without the hyphen.
> * Fallback fonts were added for CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) 
> languages.
> * Support was added for various CSS properties, functions, fonts, and 
> more.
> =================================================================
> As mentioned, version 22 also marks the initial release of a new 
> product called Oxygen Feedback. It provides a way for your community 
> to interact and offer feedback by embedding a stylish comments area 
> into any HTML-based website. It is particularly designed for published 
> WebHelp Responsive output and an add-on is available that contributes 
> a side view where you can see all the comments from your output 
> directly in Oxygen XML Editor/Author, matched to the corresponding 
> DITA topics. Users with an already existing valid license for Oxygen 
> XML Editor/Author can request a free one-year license at 
> https://www.oxygenxml.com/oxygen_feedback/special_offer.html.
> The goal of the Oxygen Publishing Engine is to make deployments 
> outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author more efficient. For example, you 
> can automate publishing from a continuous integration server by 
> offering the same configuration that you use when you publish from 
> Oxygen XML Editor/Author. This initial version provides the DITA Open 
> Toolkit with integrated Oxygen publishing plugins, including the 
> responsive Oxygen WebHelp and the CSS-based PDF Chemistry engine as a 
> cost-effective bundle. More details can be found at 
> https://www.oxygenxml.com/publishing_engine.html.
