Release 1.11.0 - Rewrite & Stabilize


The release of FontoXML DITA for Small Teams 1.11.0 took way more time than anticipated. However, the reason is quite simple: we’ve spend a lot of time to increase interoperability and stability.

Upgrade FontoXML Editor to 6.10.0

The FontoXML Editor has been updated to 6.10.0. Most notable changes are:

  • Improving our UI: The FontoXML logo has been moved to the left side of the masthead so the right side can be used for user widgets, which will be enabled in a future release. This means that including client logos in the masthead is no longer possible. The FontoXML masthead now also supports a compact view optimized for embedding FontoXML in other applications.

See FontoXML 6.10.0 for more details.

Rewritten WebDAV Implementation

We’ve completely rewritten our WebDAV client implementation in order to support a much wider variatiy of WebDAV servers. It is now possible to integrate FontoXML DITA for Small Teams with MarkLogic and ExistDB XML databases. We’ve also tested the implementation against Adobe Experience Manager, Alfresco and DITAToo. Big thanks thanks to DecaTec for his brilliant Portable-WebDAV-Library.

SVG Support

We’ve added support for uploading and previewing SVG images. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

DTD DocTypes by default

By default, we’re now using the Oasis DITA DTD DocType declarations instead of the XML Schema locations. This greatly improves interopability with Adobe FrameMaker, Oxygen and DITA-OT. If your content uses XML Schema locations, you can continue to do so, FontoXML will handle both fine, it is just a change in the default setting.

Other improvements

  • Allow conreffing footnotes.
  • Tons of stability & performance improvements.
