What's new in oXygen XML Editor 15.1

Related Versions: 15.015.115.2

October 7, 2013

With the release of version 15.1, oXygen is the first XML editor to fully support right-to-left and bidirectional text in the visual editing mode. Content authors are now able to create and edit XML documents in the oXygen Author mode, in languages like Arabic, Hebrew, Persian and others.

This version of oXygen XML makes a leap forward in working with XML modules. Using the Master Files support, oXygen assists you while editing an XML document that belongs to a set of assembled modules, and provides you features like module validation, in-context Content Completion Assistant, ID referencing or module connection overview.

The integration of the entire DITA for Publishers plugins suite enables oXygen users to produce Kindle output from DITA maps.

The latest Eclipse version (4.3) is now supported by the oXygen XML Eclipse plugin. Also, to keep you up-to-date, we bundled the latest third party components like Saxon Enterprise Edition 9.5.1.2, TEI Schemas (2.5.0), TEI Stylesheets (7.1.0), DITA for Publishers 0.9.18, and Calabash 1.0.13.

There are changes in:

Working with Modular XML Files in the Master Files Context

oXygen helps you edit XML modules referred using XInclude or External Entities. By setting the XML Master File, oXygen provides a context to solve issues like module validation, editing using the Content Completion Assistant, ID referencing or XML module connection overview (understanding how modules are connected with each other).

XML Module Validation   [read more...]

When you validate an XML document, oXygen automatically determines the master files which refer that module and validates the entire hierarchy of assembled modules. This is especially useful when, for example, a module refers IDs declared in another part of this hierarchy.

XML Module Editing   [read more...]

The Content Completion Assistant uses the schema declarations from the master files and proposes only elements and attributes valid in a particular editing context.

Search/Refactor Support for ID/IDREFS   [read more...]

The Master Files defined for the current module determines the scope of the search and refactoring actions for ID/IDREFS values and for updating references when renaming/moving a resource. oXygen performs the search and refactoring actions in the context that the master files determine, improving the speed of execution.

Search/Refactor Support for ID/IDREFS

Modules Connections Overview   [read more...]

The Resource Hierarchy/Dependencies view now allows you to visualize and understand the relationship between XML resources that are referred using the XInclude and External Entity mechanisms.

Modules Connections Overview

Renaming or Moving an XML Module Updates Its References   [read more...]

oXygen automatically updates all the references to a module when the module is renamed or moved in the Project or the Resource Hierarchy Dependencies view.

XML Visual Editing

Bidirectional Text Support in Author Editing Mode   [read more...]

oXygen is the first XML editor to offer complete support for languages that require right to left languages. This means that content authors editing documents in the oXygen Author mode are able to create and edit XML content in Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Urdu and many others.

Table and List Sorting   [read more...]

The advanced sorting support in oXygen allows you to sort the content of tables and list items. The dedicated Sort dialog box lets you sort either an entire table or list, or a selection of rows or list items. You can also use the Sort dialog to perform the sorting operation based on multiple criteria.

Tracked Changes Displayed in Read-only Fragments

oXygen renders the tracked changes in fragments referred using DITA content reference, XInclude or XML Entities mechanisms.

Track Attribute Changes

The Track Changes feature is now able to keep track of changes made to XML attributes.
Character Map Improvements

Improved Search Capabilities

Added search capabilities by character description in the "Character Map" dialog box.
Character Map Improvements
Author API and Extensibility

Form-based Editing in Author - Tooltip Property

The "tooltip" property lets you set a tooltip for the entire form control.

XPath Extension Functions

When defining the activation expression of an author action you can use the following two XPath functions:
  • oxy:allows-child-element('child_name')
  • oxy:current-selected-element('element_name')
One to test that the current element (the one containing the caret) accepts a child element, and another one to test that the element covered by the selection has a certain name.

Sharing the Classloader Between a Framework and a Plugin

A framework and a plugin that are part of the same solution can now share the same JAVA libraries.
DITA Support

Additional Output Formats

Added support to convert DITA Maps to the Kindle format. Also, now you can convert Microsoft OOXML documents to DITA projects.

Support for DITA For Publishers Specializations

Creating, editing and validating DITA content based on the specializations included in the DITA For Publishers Project are now supported out of the box.

Redesigned dialogs for inserting DITA cross references and content references

By redesigning the dialogs used for inserting DITA xref links or content references, oXygen allows easier searching for target elements in topics containing many reusable components (dictionary-like content).
DocBook Support

EPUB 3 Output

An experimental transformation scenario that produces EPUB 3 output from DocBook 4 and DocBook 5 resources has been added.
CMS Integration and Connectivity

SharePoint Filtering Support   [read more...]

You can filter the content stored on a SharePoint Repository depending on the columns available for the current library. oXygen allows you to apply multiple filters at the same time to display the items you are interested in.

Project View Enhancements

Update References to Moved or Renamed Resources

When you move or rename a resource, oXygen gives you the option to update its references in a customizable scope. This operation is available for XML, XSLT, XML Schema, Relax NG, and WSDL resources.
MarkLogic Support

Ready for MarkLogic 7

oXygen is compatible with the development version of MarkLogic 7.

MarkLogic XQuery Editing Support

When editing MarkLogic XQuery modules, the Content Completion Assistant presents the latest built-in XQuery functions in accordance with the server version.

Fast XDBC Application Server Selection

The XDBC server used to execute XQuery expression can be quickly selected using the Use it to execute queries action from the Data Source Explorer view.

Setting a Specific Content Database

You can now set a specific content database over which the XQuery expressions are executed.
Eclipse Plugin

Support for Eclipse 4.3

The oXygen XML Eclipse plugin now supports Eclipse 4.3 in addition to the already supported previous versions of Eclipse (3.4 - 3.7).
Syncro SVN Client

Repair Items Copied, Moved, or Renamed Outside of an SVN Client

Items that were copied, moved, or renamed without using an SVN client can be repaired to maintain their history, making SVN aware of all the changes.

Improved Copying of Repository Items

Repository items can now be copied from revisions other than the latest one, allowing you to recover any previous version you might need. This is allowed even if you are browsing older revisions in the Repositories view.

Extended Support for Copying Repository Items

Any version of a repository item can be retrieved directly when browsing its history either in the History view, Directory Change Set view, or Revision Graph view.

Resurrect Items Deleted from the Repository

Even if an item does not exist in the latest revision of the repository, its history is still preserved. Syncro SVN Client can resurrect any item presented as deleted in the History view, Directory Change Set view, or Revision Graph view.

" 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."
