What Was New in oXygen XML Editor 7.1

Related Versions:

March the 2nd, 2006

Support for Native XML Databases

Support for Berkeley DB XML   [read more...]

The support for Berkeley DB XML includes: resource management, resource editing, XQuery. See configuration details.

eXist Support   [read more...]

The support for eXist database includes: multiple server connections, XQuery execution, resource management and editing. A more detailed explanation can be found in the following tutorial. oXygen supports eXist database server versions 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5.


Performance Improvement for Spell Checking

The spell checking works faster for long documents and for documents that have very long lines (thousands of characters).

Optimized the Document Loading Time

Large documents are now loaded up to four times faster.

XML/CSS Pretty-Print

XML Format (Pretty-Print) Preserves Empty Lines

Content authors often use empty lines to make their XML documents more readable. An option that controls the preservation of the empty lines has been added. It is enabled by default.

XML Format (Pretty-Print) Preserves the Original Value of the Attributes

An option (enabled by default) controls if the Pretty-Print operation should preserve the original value of the attributes as they were before the operation in the XML source. When this option is disabled the value will be normalized.

CSS Format (Pretty-Print) Options

Styles from the CSS files can be formatted by indenting the content. Also the style blocks can optionally be separated using new lines.

Graphical User Interface

Character Map

Available from the Tools menu, this dialog allows you to select any Unicode character. The selected character may be inserted in the document either directly or as character entity.

Check Spelling Menu

By enabling the "Automatic spell check" option from the "Editor/Spelling" the spelling errors from the document are highlighted during typing. The contextual menu on a highlighted word offers a list of correction proposals.

Different Markers for Errors and Warnings

The errors and warnings presented in the vertical ruler have different colors, the warnings are presented in yellow, while the errors in red.

Tooltips for Error Highlights

When moving the cursor over an error highlight in the XML source, a tooltip with the error description will be displayed.

Annotation Tooltips for the XML Attributes

If you place the cursor over an attribute, the application will display a tooltip containing the annotation defined for that attribute in the associated document schema.

Quick Find Toolbar

This allows an easy-to-use and ergonomic search in the current document. It can be triggered with a shortcut, by default CTRL+ALT+F and can be closed by using the Escape key. Being only a toolbar (not a dialog) saves your working space.

Replace All Button in the Find Dialog

Besides the Replace to end action, now there is also a Replace all action available.

Search in Files Option: Re-Curse Subdirectories

You can search in a directory structure, either recursive through all subdirectories or only in that directory.

Options Dialog is More Compact

Some sections in the Options dialog have been redesigned.

Keyboard Shortcuts for Navigating Through the List of Errors or Find Results

You can select the next/previous error/result by using CTRL+Period(.) or CTRL+Comma(,) shortcuts.

Different Colors for XML Prefixes

You can define colors for the tags starting with a certain prefix. More than that, you can choose only the prefix to be colored differently, the name of the element being colored with the default element color.

Improved the Look on the Mac OS X Platform

The tab labels of the dockable views/editors now have the Aqua style.

XSLT / XPath

XPath Builder View   [read more...]

This view allows you to edit multi-line, complex expressions and assists you with features such as the Content Completion Assistant, syntax highlight, automatic validation, and documentation of the currently edited item. The executed expressions are stored in a history list and they can be re-used as necessary from the Content Completion Assistant.

Support for Custom XSLT Processors

Along with the bundled XSLT processors, it is possible to configure other XSLT processors, such as Sablotron, Transformiix, XT, Oracle XSLT. See the Options dialog, section "XSLT/XQuery/FO/XSLT/Custom engines".

Option for Filtering the Proposals Offered by XPath Content Completion Assistant

For instance, you can define that node axes should appear in the content completion window, but not the XSLT functions. This is the case when editing, for instance, an XPath expression in a stylesheet's "match"/"select" attribute or when directly editing an expression in the XPath toolbar. You can also inhibit all the XPath proposals.

Component Updates

Updated Saxon8B from Saxonica to Version 8.7

Saxon 8B XSLT processor has been updated to the latest version: 8.7 . oXygen supports also the Saxon8SA 8.7 (that requires a separate license from Saxonica).

Updated Xerces to Version 2.8.0

The Xerces parser has been updated to the latest version.

Updated XMLSec to Version 1.3

The package allowing the XML document signing and signature check has been updated.
