New in version 12.2:
Version 12.2 of oXygen XML introduces a number of unique development features. It provides support for editing XSLT and XML Schema modules in the context of a main XSLT, respectively main XML Schema file. To improve XML Schema visual editing it introduces a Palette view that allows to easily create new schema components by dragging them from this Palette view into the diagram. For XSLT 2.0 and XQuery transformations it is possible to specify parameter values as XPath expressions when the engine allows that.
The new version includes also one of the most requested features: Ant integration - the support for Ant transformation scenarios allows executing a target from an Ant script.
The EPUB support received special attention, oXygen offers now EPUB validation by integrating EpubCheck, editing and validation for specific EPUB file types as well as a number of general enhancements for working with archive-based formats.
The visual authoring features improvements in change tracking, table editing, transformations to new target formats and new API additions.
The integrated Subversion client includes an improved Repositories view, offering a new design, better actions workflow and an optimized repository access.
Many of the oXygen components were updated to their latest version.
