Oxygen XML Developer 16.1

October 7, 2014

Version 16.1 of Oxygen XML Developer extended the Quick Fixes support to also handle XML documents validated with XML Schema.

The XSLT editor 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 Eclipse plugin version of Oxygen XML Developer 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.

There are changes in:


XML Quick Fixes

The Quick Fix support helps you resolve different errors that appear in an XML document by proposing automatic fixes for common problems such as missing required attributes or invalid elements. This feature is only available for XML documents validated against an XML Schema.

Display Annotations Using HTML

You can use HTML styling in the annotations you add in an XML Schema or Relax NG schema. This improves the visual appearance and readability of the documentation and tooltip windows displayed when editing XML documents validated against such a schema.

Execute XPath Expressions over Files Inside Archives

XPath expressions can be executed over files inside archives (including EPUB and Docx). The archive can be open in the Archive Browser view or referenced from the currently selected scope.


CSS Minification Tool

Oxygen includes a minification tool that allows you to compress and minimize the CSS stylesheets you are developing for deployment on a web server.


XSLT Outline Displays xsl:key and xsl:output Components

The Outline view collects and displays information about the xsl:key and xsl:output components when you are editing an XSLT document.

Improved Documentation for XSLT Components

The documentation for XSLT components (elements, attributes and functions) has been reviewed and improved. The documentation is now displayed using a more readable HTML format with navigation links to the specification.

SharePoint Integration

SharePoint Browser View

The SharePoint Browser has been promoted as a dedicated view, allowing you to interact with SharePoint repositories through a set of specific actions.


WebHelp Pages Use HTML5 Elements

WebHelp pages generated by the Oxygen transformations from DITA XML and DocBook XML content start with an HTML5 DOCTYPE declaration. A video from a source XML document is translated to the HTML5 video element.

Eclipse Plugin


Ant Quick Fixes

Added Quick Fix support for missing target references in Ant build documents.

High Contrast Themes Inheritance

On Windows operating systems, Oxygen inherits colors set in the high contrast themes.

Allow Filtering by Unicode Blocks

The Character Map dialog box allows you to view all characters available in a certain Unicode block range for a specific font.

SVN Client

Support for Subversion 1.8

Oxygen now supports Subversion 1.8 working copies and also SVN 1.8 FSFS-backed repositories accessed through the file:// protocol. Starting with this version, SVN 1.6 and older working copies are no longer supported, unless using an older version of Syncro SVN Client.
