What Was New in oXygen XML Editor 7.1
March the 2nd, 2006
There are changes in:
Support for Native XML Databases
eXist Support [read more...]
The support for eXist database includes
multiple server connections, XQuery execution, resource management, and editing.
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 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
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
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
Available from the Tools menu, this dialog box 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
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
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
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 box) saves your
Replace All Button in the Find Dialog Box
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 box have been
Keyboard Shortcuts for Navigating Through the List of Errors or Find
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
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 box, section "XSLT/XQuery/FO/XSLT/Custom engines".
Option for Filtering the Proposals Offered by XPath Content Completion
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.
Updated Saxon8B from Saxonica to Version 8.7
