May 20, 2014

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.

As usual, this version contains lots of small improvements and bug fixes.

The WebHelp output style can be customized with a CSS that can be passed as a parameter for the transformations from DITA and DocBook to WebHelp. Oxygen provides an online tool that allows non-technical users to easily create these CSS customizations in a visual interface, starting from one of the pre-defined skin templates.
