Version 18.0

Oxygen XML WebHelp version 18.0 includes new features and improvements to help make the WebHelp publishing experience even more enjoyable and the responsive output more visually appealing.

DITA content can be published using a new HTML5 publishing system called WebHelp Responsive. Nearly all aspects of its layout can be customized and it is adaptable to any device and screen size to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience. It also includes a variant that allows online users to provide feedback in your documentation.

It comes with a variety of predefined templates and skins that allow you to quickly generate multiple versions of your documentation. You can also customize virtually any aspect of the output and create your own templates and skins to conform with your company styling rules.

Version 17.1

Oxygen XML WebHelp system version 17.1 was improved to enhance your published output. Google Search, Google Analytics, and some popular social media widgets can now be integrated into your WebHelp system and search features are now available in offline mode.

Version 17.0

The DITA/DocBook to WebHelp transformations optimize the page loading time and provide support for context-sensitive help, SEO resources, and LDAP authentication. The WebHelp output that now supports both RTL scripts and Japanese content can be easily embedded in a page.

Version 16.1

The Oxygen WebHelp transformations generate the HTML5 doctype declaration and the video content is rendered using the HTML5 video element.

Version 16.0

Oxygen XML WebHelp has been updated to work with DITA OT 1.8.4. Also, you can customize the style of the Oxygen WebHelp output that can be obtained from DITA and DocBook to look exactly as you want using the WebHelp skin builder.
