Experimental support for CGM images, more
Syncro Soft has updated its Oxygen XML multi-platform editor to version 13.2, which most prominently adds a new Syntax Highlight feature capable of handling many mixed content types. The update also improves authoring support by including an updated DITA Mats Metrics Report, improves JSON editing support and bidirectional document rendering, adds "experimental" support for CGM images, extends the XML-native database support with find-and-replace capabilities and more.
The program is a comprehensive editor that supports all XML related technologies, and includes content-author features such as CSS-driven Visual XML editor married to a full-featured XML development environment. It includes support for all XML schema languages and main document frameworks (DITA, DocBook, TEI and XHTML) as well as support for XSLT/XQuery debuggers, XML databases, XMD Diff and Merge, a WSDL analyzer, an SVN client and more.
The new version also includes an updated API and updates for many of the third-party components, as well as adds support for MarkLogic 5. The program is sold in three versions, an Academic/Personal license ($64, includes one year support), a Professional license ($488) and an Enterprise license for $698. Users can purchase XML Developer and XML Author as stand-alone products, with Professional licenses for either costing $349 and Enterprise licenses costing $449. A free 30-day trial is available.
