Syncro Soft Announces the Release of Version 21.1.1 of the Oxygen XML Web Author

Press release from the issuing company

Syncro Soft, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, is excited to announce the immediate availability of version 21.1.1 of Oxygen XML Web Author.

Version 21.1.1 of the Oxygen XML Web Author is the latest minor release for the innovative web-based authoring tool. The focus of this release was to make editing even more efficient, enable easier navigation of a DITA project, and to make it possible to compare different versions of a file or different files.

Some examples of improvements added in this version include drag and drop actions for moving, inserting, and uploading content, a new DITA Map view that presents DITA map content like a table of contents, the addition of a file comparison tool to see the differences between two files or versions, various new customization options, URL parameters, APIs, and much more.

Specific New Features and Improvements in Oxygen XML Web Author 21.1.1 include:

* A DITA Map view was added to present a DITA map like a table of contents. The view is opened with a toolbar button and Web Author automatically tries to find the appropriate root map for the current document based on history, but you can also select the map using a browsing tool or a URL parameter. The map is also used to resolve the keys and referenced in the current document opened in the editor.

* A file comparison tool plugin is available. It can be used to show differences between the current document and the latest version of it that was saved in the repository. If you are using a Git file repository integration, it automatically does a three-way comparison between the current document, its latest version from the repository, and the original base revision. This plugin is offered at no extra cost for the end-user as part of the standard subscription plans.

* Drag and drop functionality was added to make it easier to move or insert content and resources. Drag and drop actions can also be used to upload files to your repository.

* More editing features were added for convenience and efficiency. For example, keyboard shortcuts are now displayed next to actions in the contextual menu and when hovering over toolbar buttons.
