Related Versions: 7.07.17.2

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

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 loaded now 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. A new 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) new 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 presents 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 "Replace to end" now there is also available a "Replace all" action.

Search in files option: Recurse subdirectories

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

Options dialog is now more compact

Some sections in the option 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+Dot(.) or CTRL+Comma(,) shortcuts.

Different colors only 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 editing of multi-line, complex expressions, assisting you with features like content completion, syntax highlight, automatic validation and documentation of the currently edited item. The executed expressions are stored in a history list and they can be reused as necessary.

Support for custom XSLT Processors

Along with the bundled XSLT processors, it is possible to configure other XSLT processors, like 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

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 "match"/"select" attribute or when editing directly an expression in the XPath toolbar. Also you can 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.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
