Microsoft® Office - Office Open XML (OOXML)   [read more...]

Oxygen XML Editor offers support for editing, transforming, and validating documents composed through the Office Open XML (OOXML) package directly through the archive support. This support is also available for other types of zipped files.

Open Document Format (ODF)   [read more...]

Oxygen XML Editor allows you to extract, validate, edit, and process XML data stored in Open Document Format (ODF) files and other ZIP-based archive. These capabilities allow you to use data from ODF documents, through validation and transformations, in other file formats.

Edit/Process Files Directly from ZIP-Based Packages

You can transform (using XSLT 1.0, 2.0, XQuery), validate, and perform many other operations on files inside archives.

Comparing Files and Directories from ZIP-Based Archives

You can seamlessly compare and merge files in ZIP archives (OOXML, ODF, JAR, etc.) using the Compare Directories tool. You can examine and merge differences in files from ZIP archives in the Compare Files tool.

Improvements in the Visual Author Mode

Support for Images Referenced by an Entity Name

The Author mode can display images referenced by the name of an external entity which specifies the physical location of the image file.

Support for Multiple Selection in the Author Outline view

You can drag-and-drop, cut, copy, paste or delete multiple nodes in the Author Outline view.

Improvements in the DITA Map Editor

Easier Addition of Topic References in DITA Maps

You can insert multiple topic references repeatedly without closing the insertion dialog box. The dialog box also has an integrated file navigator for easier topic references browsing. Using the contextual menu you can also easily insert a topic reference to the current edited topic.

Support for Using URI in Topic References

If a topic reference contains a URI value it will be solved through the Oxygen configured catalogs before being displayed in the DITA Map.

Generate Bookmarks in PDF Transformations with DITA Open Toolkit

The XSLT stylesheets of DITA Open Toolkit for PDF output were patched for generating correct PDF bookmarks and a Table of Contents.

Improvements in the Text Editor

Improved Attributes Editing Support

You can quickly find and insert an attribute without having to edit directly in the attributes table using the enhanced attributes editor. You can also choose a file path as an attribute value. This support is available in the Attributes, Outline and Schema Diagram views.

Selection Plugins Can be Applied to Non-XML Documents

A selection plugin can now be applied to non-XML documents. In previous versions it could be applied only to an XML document.

Other Features

Show/Hide Processing Instructions and Comments in the Text/Author Outline view

You can use a toggle button in the Outline view to easily show/hide Processing Instructions and Comments in the outline tree.

Easier Generation of XML Schema Documentation from an External Process

You can export the settings of the schema documentation dialog box to an XML file. With the exported settings file you can generate the same HTML documentation from the command line by running the script schemaDocumentation.bat (on Windows) / schemaDocumentation.sh (on Mac OS X / Unix / Linux) located in the Oxygen XML Editor installation folder.

More Detailed Errors in Digital Signature Verification

When the verification of a digital signature fails, the error messages offer more details when they are available. This is the case when the signature hash value does not match the signed content or the public key is invalid.

More Flexible Options When Creating Detached Signatures

You can set options such as Transformation type, XPath, or ID when creating a detached signature.

Drag-and-Drop in the Project Linked Folders

The structure of the project tree can be changed by drag-and-drop actions also when the tree contains linked folders.

Built-in Support for Validation and Content Completion in MathML Documents

Oxygen includes the Math 2.0 DTD's allowing validation and content completion proposals in MathML XML documents.

Support for Post-Validation in LIBXML

The --postvalid flag is set as default allowing LIBXML to correctly validate the main document even if the XInclude fragments contain IDREFS located in other fragments.

Updated the Xalan Processor

The Apache XSLT 1.0 processor was updated to version 2.7.1. Xalan can be used for running XSLT transformations in both the Editor perspective and the XSLT Debugger one and for validating XSLT stylesheets.
