Related Versions: 23.0.023.1.023.1.1

March 4, 2021

Version 23.1.0 of Oxygen XML Web Author expands upon the features that were recently added in Version 23.0.0 with further improvements to some of those features, along with several new enhancements.

Some of the highlights include:

  • The Outline Pane now displays the entire content of a DITA map when it is opened with all of the referenced topics expanded/editable in one document.
  • The performance of the visual editor was optimized for Concurrent Editing sessions.
  • On the customization side, CSS variables are now supported and the feature that displays a DITA map with all of the referenced topic content expanded/editable in one document can now be enabled for Bitbucket Server integrations.
  • This release also includes new API methods, various bug fixes, and component updates.

See see many of the new features in action, watch our What's New in Oxygen 23.1 Webinar.

DITA Authoring

Outline Pane Supports Maps Opened with Editable Referenced Content

When opening a DITA map with all of the referenced topic content expanded and editable, the referenced topic content is now also displayed in the Outline Pane. This is helpful for visualizing the XML structure and offers a quick way to navigate through content of the entire map.

Concurrent Editing

Concurrent Editing Support Optimized

The Concurrent Editing feature that provides the ability for multiple contributors to edit and review content simultaneously was enhanced with performance improvements. For example, when only one person is in a shared session, the performance of the visual editor is similar with non-current editing.

The public Concurrent Editing API was successfully used in Oxygen Content Fusion to automatically create and close concurrent editing sessions when users open and close a document. Also, changes made by users concurrently are de-interleaved and saved to the file storage, providing a meaningful history of the document.

Concurrent Editing Support

Customization

CSS Variables Now Supported

Web Author now supports CSS variables (also referred to as custom properties). CSS variables are properties defined by CSS authors that contain specific values that are reused throughout a document.

Edit DITA Maps with Content Expanded in Bitbucket Server Integrations

The feature that displays a DITA map with all of the referenced topic content expanded and editable in one document (triggered from the Edit Topic Content option in the DITA Map Display Mode drop-down menu) can now be enabled for Bitbucket Server integrations.

API

Add or Remove Custom Properties for Any Persistent Highlight

The AuthorReviewController.setPersistentHighlightProperties() and AuthorReviewController.removePersistentHighlightProperties() API methods were added and can be used to set or remove a custom property name and value on any persistent highlight.

Mark Expanded Referenced Content as Saved

A new markDocumentAsSaved() method was added to the UnsavedContentReferenceManager class and can be used by a plugin that supports opening a map with all of the referenced topic content expanded/editable to signal that changes to the map were saved.

Component Updates

Apache Shiro 1.7.1

Updated the Apache Shiro library to version 1.7.1.

Apache Tomcat 9.0.43

Updated the Apache Tomcat in the installers to version 9.0.43.
