Oxygen XML Author 13.2

Related Versions:

January 12, 2012

Version 13.2 introduces a Syntax Highlight mechanism capable of handling mixed content types, improves the JSON editing support and bidirectional documents rendering, extends the XML-native database support with find/replace capabilities and updates many third-party components. Also, this version includes an updated DITA Maps Metrics Report, experimental support for CGM images and updated API .

There are changes in:

Core Functionality

Syntax Highlight for Mixed Content Types

The syntax coloring engine was redesigned for an improved performance and a more accurate detection of the tokens. Different content types mixed in the same file are highlighted according with the color schemes defined for each content type. Syntax highlight is available for:

  • CSS, JavaScript and PHP code embedded in XHTML files
  • XPath, CSS and JavaScript code in XSLT files
  • XPath expressions in Schematron files
  • XPath expressions in XProc files

Find/Replace over Remote Files

You can use the Find / Replace in Files support over remote files (WebDAV, FTP) that are linked from a project or DITA map.

Spell Check in Remote Files

Added Spell Check support for the remote files (WebDAV, FTP) that are linked from a project or DITA map.

Improved Open/Find Resource Filter

The Open/Find Resource action was improved by allowing you to look for resources using path fragments (matches on directories).

Improved BIDI Rendering Support

A number of BIDI text-related issues have been fixed, leading to an improved rendering of bidirectional content documents.


Improved JSON Editing Support

Mark as Array action was added in Grid editing mode to convert a JSON value to array. Also, three additional actions (Insert value before, Insert value after, and Append value as child) ease the editing of JSON documents.


Improved DITA Map Metrics Report

The DITA Maps Metrics Report was enriched with the following information: DITA conditional processing attributes used in DITA Maps, number of elements, attributes, words, and characters used in the entire DITA Map structure, and information types such as number of containing maps, bookmaps, or topics.

Experimental Support for CGM Images

Oxygen provides experimental support for CGM 1.0 images.

Improved the Use of Profiling / Conditional Text

The use of Edit Profiling Attributes action is no longer restricted to only profiling entire elements. Now it also works on selections that contain multiple elements. You can also apply it to multiple topics selected in the DITA Maps Manager view.

Prefixed Oxygen CSS Properties Extensions

Oxygen-specific CSS properties are now prefixed with the -oxy- marker. The old, unprefixed form has been deprecated.

Browse Reference Manual Action

A contextual action is available for DITA, DocBook, TEI, XHTML documents. It opens in your web browser a reference to the documentation of the XML element closest to the cursor position.

Extended API

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

Change the Foreground Color of a Custom Highlight

Added accessor methods in ro.sync.ecss.extensions.api.highlights.ColorHighlightPainter class that allow you to change the foreground color of a custom highlight.

Keep Undo History When Replacing the Editor Content

A method (WSEditorBase.reloadContent(Reader, boolean)) was added that allows you to replace the entire content of the editor, keeping the UNDO history.

Customization of the Nodes Rendering

You can use an implementation of the ro.sync.exml.workspace.api.node.customizer.XMLNodeRendererCustomizer interface, to customize the way an XML node is rendered in the Author mode's Outline view, Author mode's breadcrumb navigation bar, Text mode's Outline view, Content Completion Assistant window, or DITA Maps Manager view.

Targeted URL Stream Handler Plugin

This plugin is useful when connections opened from a specific host must be handled in a particular way. For example, the built-in Oxygen HTTP URLStreamHandler may not be compatible for sending and receiving SOAP using the SUN Webservices implementation. In this case you can override the stream handler set by Oxygen for HTTP to use the default SUN URLStreamHandler.

Customization of the XML Fragment that Wraps the Profiled Content

You can provide an extension of ro.sync.ecss.extensions.api.ProfilingConditionalTextProvider class through ExtensionBundle in order to set a phrase-type element that will wrap the content the author wants to profile. The profiling attributes will then be applied on this phrase-like element. This extension was designed to help you handle selections that contain partially selected element content. Oxygen comes bundled with default extension for DITA and DocBook built-in frameworks.

Access to a Specific Editor

You have access to all open files (editors) by using the AuthorWorkspaceAccess.getEditorAccess(URL) method. You can also find all the editor locations from getAllEditorLocations() method.
