What Was New in oXygen XML Editor 11.2
March 16, 2010
There are changes in:
Author Component Integration
An Author mode is available as a component that can be
integrated in your Java application or applet. All features available for
editing in the Author mode of oXygen XML Editor are also
available in the Author component.
See demonstration and more details here. Please note that the
demonstration requires Java 6 and it works only on Windows and Linux.
Author for DITA
Support for Reusable Components
A fragment of a topic can be extracted in a separate file for re-use in
different topics. The component can be re-used by inserting an element with a
conref attribute where the content of the component is needed.
This works without any additional configuration and supports any DITA
Content References Management
The DITA framework includes actions for adding, editing and removing a
content reference (conref, conkeyref,
conrefend attributes) to/from an existing
Fast Loading of DITA Maps
A new schema caching mechanism allows to quickly open large DITA Maps
and their referenced topics.
Author Editing Mode
Preserve Formatting for Unchanged Elements
A new option allows formatting and saving only the modified elements.
This keeps the formatting of the other elements for easy comparing of two versions
of the file in a versioning system.
Schema-Aware Editing Improvements
In case when multiple recovery strategies are validated by the schema
information a dialog box appears presenting the available recovery alternatives.
The dialog box also allows to execute the original action unchanged with the
notice that the result will be invalid according with the schema.
Update the Outline View
The current selection can be accessed and set in the Outline view from
custom extensions of an Author framework.
Customize the Outline View
The pop-up menu and the displaying and filtering of the tree nodes can
be customized in the Outline view with an extension of an Author
Customize the Breadcrumb
The text displayed in the nodes list of the Breadcrumb and the pop-up
menu of the Breadcrumb can be customized with an extension of an Author
Update the Status Bar
The user can be notified about the state of an operation by updating
the oXygen status bar. This is usually preferable to displaying a dialog
Text Editing Mode
Improved Handling of Large Documents
The support for large documents has been improved so that the opening
and editing of large documents are faster. oXygen can also open documents with
very long lines by using automatic line wrapping.
Customizable Font Styles for Syntax Highlighting
A font style (bold/italic) and a background color can be set for any
token (element, attribute, text, etc.) that is displayed in an editor in
XSLT and XQuery
Debug XPath Expressions
The XSLT Debugger is capable to step into XPath 2.0 expressions when
using the bundled Saxon-HE/PE/EE XSLT processor.
XQuery 1.1 Transformations
Saxon 9 EE bundled with oXygen can be used to run XQuery 1.1
New Spell Checker
Hunspell (the engine used by OpenOffice, Mozilla and others) is now
used by oXygen for spell checking. oXygen ships with dictionaries for
English, German, French and Spanish but users can also install others from the
almost 100 dictionaries available for Hunspell. The old spell checking engine
oXygen includes a hexadecimal viewer.
Workspace Access Plugin
A new type of plugin was added. This plugin provides support for
customizing the menus, toolbars and views of the application and for opening and
closing documents. It is active in both Text mode and
Author mode of all opened documents.
Mark Resource Read-Only
A resource opened with a custom protocol plugin can be marked as
read-only. It can be used when opening resources from a CMS (Content Management
Open Redirect Plugin
This type of plugin is useful for opening multiple files with only one
open action. For example, when a zip archive or an ODF file or an OOXML file is
opened in the Archive Browser view the plugin can decide to open also a file from
the archive in a new XML editor panel. For example, the document.xml main file
from an OOXML file archive.
Faster Working Copy Load Time
A working copy is cached, so when it is loaded next time in the Working
Copy view, the operation will be much faster than in the previous versions of
Syncro SVN Client.
Automatic Refresh of the Working Copy
The working copy is automatically refreshed every time Syncro SVN
Client gains focus, if changes are detected in the file system. This is done in
order to update the state of the resources modified by external
More Responsive Repository Browsing
You can configure the repository connections timeout and stop
non-responsive repository browsing operations.
Better Handling for Obstructed Resources
Operations correctly take into account obstructed
Print or Save as Image a Revision Graph
Generated revision graphs can be printed or saved as
