Syncro Soft, the producer of Oxygen XML Editor and Author (http://www.oxygenxml.com), has released version 13 of its XML Editor and XML Author containing a set of tools supporting all the XML related technologies.
Version 13 is focused on user interface improvements related to visual XML editing, XML attributes editing, presentation of results for validation, transformation, spell checking and search operations, XML Diff and SVN support. The EPUB support was extended with visual rendering of EPUB specific files and enhanced validation. New built-in transformation scenarios allow the conversion of TEI documents to EPUB, ODF and DOCX. DITA improvements include search references (where used) within a DITA map, map validation under multiple condition sets (ditaval files), use of subject scheme defined values and more.
The Data Source Explorer view features drag and drop capabilities that allow copy/move operations even between different databases. The new version adds support for JSON document editing, validation and conversion. Browser specific CSS extensions are now supported in the CSS editor.
Also, version 13 introduces Oxygen XML Developer as a new product in the Oxygen XML family of products. This aggregates all the XML development features offering a cost effective tool for people that do not need the visual editing support. The Oxygen XML Editor is the union of Oxygen XML Developer and Oxygen XML Author offering both the XML authoring and XML development capabilities.
