Syncro Soft Announces New Release of Oxygen XML Editor, Schema Editor and
XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

Release date: December 18, 2007

With a new approach to XML authoring, Oxygen XML Editor 9 makes easier than
ever before working with XML frameworks (DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML, etc).
The CSS-based visual XML editor introduced by version 9 allows WYSIWYG like
editing of XML documents.
Version 9.1 adds a number of improvements, the main additions being related
with the WYSIWYG like XML editor and with the WebDAV support. It also
contains support for SOAP 1.2 and some updated components.

New in version 9.1:

When visually editing XML documents it is always a challenge to easily edit
XML attributes. The new version solves this problem by allowing a quick and
easy way with the new in place editing for XML attributes. The “in-place
editing popup” can be triggered with a configurable shortcut (by default
that is Alt+Enter). Both XML attribute names and possible values can be
quickly selected by typing their prefixes.

The visual Author mode from Oxygen XML editor was also enhanced with
support for bookmarks. These allow quick positioning in large documents and
working in multiple locations of multiple documents.

DITA map documents can be easily converted to HTML or PDF. A new
pre-configured scenario was added for the default DITA configuration for
transforming a DITA Map document to HTML. The already existing DITA to PDF
scenario can now also handle DITA map files so you can use it to convert a
DITA map to PDF.

The WebDAV support has been improved by adding WebDAV locking support. This
ensures that only you can modify that resource on the WebDAV server. If
another user tries to edit a locked resource s/he will receive a warning
message containing the name of the lock owner. The resource is locked when
you open it and released automatically when the resource is closed.

Oxygen XML editor now supports SOAP 1.2. The SOAP version is detected from
the WSDL definition file and the appropriate headers are set in the SOAP
request. The SOAP 1.2 envelope is validated against a SOAP 1.2 XML Schema.

Several components were updated. The TEI framework was updated to the
latest P5 1.0 schemas, DITA Open Toolkit to the latest 1.4.1 and Saxon B
XSLT processor from Saxonica to the latest version. Oxygen XML
editor also supports the Saxon SA (that requires a separate license
from Saxonica).
