Text Mode

Refactoring Highlighted Content

You can easily manage the occurrences of the text found through executing an XPath expression or a find operation, using actions that act on all highlights. You have the option to remove all highlighted content, modify, or surround the content with a specific tag.

Select Attribute in Text Mode

You are able to quickly select an attribute and its value using triple click on the attribute's name in the Oxygen stand-alone, and double-click right before the attributes name in the Oxygen Eclipse plugin.

Automatically Comment a Matching Tag

Oxygen automatically applies the same action on the matching end tag when you comment a start tag. You can comment one or more start tags and their matching end tags are also commented so the document remains "well-formed".

CMS Integration and Connectivity

Accessing Microsoft Office 365 Documents

You can access documents stored on a SharePoint site from your Office 365 account using the "Open URL" action from Oxygen.
CMS Integration and Connectivity

Integrating the Author Applet on a SharePoint Site

The Author Component can be embedded in a SharePoint site as a Java applet. This is a simple and convenient way for you to retrieve, open, and save XML and XML-related documents stored on your company's SharePoint server, directly from your web browser. You can embed the applet either on a site that is located on a standalone SharePoint server, or on your company's Microsoft Office 365 account.

Syncro SVN Client

Support for SVN 1.8 Servers

Subversion 1.8 repositories are now supported, excepting FSFS-backed repositories accessed through the "file://" protocol. Working copies having SVN 1.8 format are not yet supported.

Copy/Move Operation Improvements

The SVN Client does its best to copy/move items within the working copy. In cases when the operation would not normally work in Subversion, a simple file system copy/move operation is performed. Also, valid destination directories are detected automatically and presented to you.

Drag-and-Drop Improvements in the Working Copy View

The Drag ad Drop support was extended to all the Working Copy view modes. Also, compatibility between the SVN Client and external applications was improved for dragging and dropping items from one to another.

Drag-and-Drop Support in the Repositories View

Copying and moving repository items is made easy through the drag-and-drop support added in the Repositories view.

Component Updates

Calabash 1.0.16

The Calabash XProc engine was updated to version 1.0.16.

TEI XSL Update

TEI XSL was updated to version 7.7.0.

Saxon 9.5.1.3

The bundled Saxon Enterprise Edition XSLT processor from Saxonica was updated to version 9.5.1.3.

Other

Bundled Java 7 JRE in the Mac OS X Installation Kit

The Oxygen installation kit for mac OS X (10.7, 10.8, and 10.9) includes Java 7.

Improved Layouts

You can choose to keep a separate layout for each project, thus when you move between projects you get not only the last opened files specific to that project restored, but also the exact layout of views, editors, and toolbars. Therefore, when you come back to a project you continue exactly from the state in which you left that project.

Maven 4.0 Framework

A new document type configuration is available allowing to create and edit Maven 4.0 POM documents.

Distinct Sounds Depending on the Status of the Current Operation

Success and failure of the validation or transformation actions can be signaled also with a sound. The beep signal has a higher audio frequency when the operation is successful, and a lower audio frequency when the operation fails.

Extended API

A detailed list of all changes to the Java API can be found here.

Support for Setting Custom Pseudo-Classes

You can set your custom CSS pseudo-classes on the nodes from the AuthorDocument. These are similar to the normal XML attributes, with the important difference that they are not serialized, and by changing them the document does not create undo and redo edits - the document is considered unmodified. You can use custom pseudo-classes for changing the style of an element (and its children) without altering the document.

Additional Calls to the Custom URI Resolvers

The custom URI resolvers set with the pre-existing API XMLUtilAccess.addPriorityURIResolver(URIResolver) are now called to resolve image and content references even if the resources are placed on the local drive. This is useful for indirecting the application to resolve resources in other places.

Obtain an Existing AuthorDocumentFilter Implementation

If you have both a plugin and a framework which need to set an AuthorDocumentFilter, you can obtain the existing filter implementation and wrap it in your own filter implementation using the API AuthorDocumentController.getDocumentFilter().

Refresh References in Document Controller

Added the API method AuthorDocumentController.refreshNodeReferences(AuthorNode) to refresh references on a certain node for developers who implement a custom AuthorContentReferencesResolver.

Actions Provider Access from DITA Map Editor Page

Added the API method WSDITAMapEditorPage.getActionsProvider() to obtain actions defined in the DITA Map Editor Page and mount them to custom controls.

Obtain the Existing Unique Attributes Processor

You can obtain in your extension Java operations the current unique attributes processor in order to check if certain attributes should be removed when copying content using the API AuthorDocumentController.getUniqueAttributesProcessor().

API to Show Multiple Files Chooser

The API method WorkspaceUtilities.chooseFiles(File, String, String[], String) allows you to show a file chooser having multiple selection enabled.

API to Create Input Stream over Editor's Content

The API method WSEditorBase.createContentInputStream() allows you to create an input stream over the contents of the editor. The implementation will take care of using the proper character encoding.

Create CSS Alternatives Toolbar in the Author Component

The CSS Alternatives drop-down button defined in the document type can be added to the toolbar of an Author Component application using the API WSAuthorComponentEditorPage.createCSSAlternativesToolbar().

Save Global Preferences

Usually the application saves its global preferences when it is closed. You can force save the global options to their storage location by calling this API: PluginWorkspace.saveGlobalOptions().

More Context Information for Editing Attribute Values

When the custom InputURLChooserCustomizer gets called to edit an attribute value you can find out more details about the current element and the current edited attribute: AttributeEditingContextDescription.getElementContext().

Open an Editor with an Imposed Content Type

If a URL does not have an extension but the developer knows beforehand the type of resource (XML, DITA Map, etc.) in order to avoid the application asking the end-user what type of resource is being opened this API can be used instead: ro.sync.exml.workspace.api.Workspace.open(URL, String, String).

DITA Map Content Type for a URL Connection

If a DITA Map URL does not have an extension and a custom URL Connection is implemented for it in the application the method URLConnection.getContentType() can return the value application/ditamap to identify it as such.

Better Integration for Form Controls with Custom Edit

If a custom form control performs a custom edit, it can pass the Runnable containing the edit to the application in order to integrate better in the editing flow using the API EditingEvent.customEdit.

Operation Capable of Running a Sequence of Other Actions

The ExecuteMultipleActionsOperation can execute a sequence of actions, defined as a list of IDs. The actions must be defined by the corresponding framework, or one of the common actions for all frameworks supplied by Oxygen. ExecuteMultipleActionsOperation.
