New in this documentation release

Build 4.3.57

Build 4.3.47

  • Added two new attributes to the languages.xml configuration file. The default attribute specifies the language selected by default in the dialog boxes used to create objects and the authoring attribute specifies whether the language is made available in the list of options in the dialog boxes used to create objects. For more information, see Configure languages for document creation and localization.
  • A new attribute, deprecated, has been added to the conditionaltext.xml configuration file to allow system administrators to deprecate a conditional attribute value. For more information, see Deprecating conditional attribute values.
  • Added ability to store oXygen XML Editor's document types extensions (framework extensions) in the Content Store so they are added into the oXygen Editor's Preferences when the DITA CMS Eclipse Clients are launched. For more information, see Adding oXygen XML Editor's document type extensions (framework extensions) to the Content Store.
  • Corrected a sample code error in the procedure to Create a map template that generates topics.
  • A new type has been added to the resource.xml file to allow non-DITA files referenced by an imported object to be imported as resources identified as type "unknown", which allows them to be searchable. For more information, see Configure resource types.

DITA CMS 4.3 updates

  • A new configuration option called incremental localization has been added to the sequential localization mode. The new incremental localization process allows you to start the localization process for a map without having all the objects in the Authoring:done status (or the equivalent status in your deployment). For more information, see Configure the incremental localization process.
  • A new configuration option called pivot language localization has been added to the sequential localization mode. Pivot language localization allows you to use an intermediate language (pivot language) when a direct translation between the source language and the target language is not available. For more information, see Localizing from an alternate language (pivot language localization).
  • When specifying perspective names in the system/conf/eclipseui.xml file, you can now use wildcards to specify multiple perspectives in a single line. For example, "com.ixiasoft.dita.eclipse.gui.perspective.*" will match all the DITA CMS perspectives. See Simplify a perspective for more information.

DITA CMS 4.2 updates

  • The new simplified user interface (UI) feature allows you to simplify the user interface by customizing the layout both when the DITA CMS starts up and in the various DITA CMS perspectives. See Simplifying the interface of the DITA CMS Eclipse Client.
  • The location-based groups feature is a grouping capability that lets you define locations within the groups. Adding locations to the groups allows users to gain access to various DITA CMS features according to their location. See Location-based groups.
  • The Scheduler and Web Collaborative Reviewer components are now documented in the following guides:
    • Scheduler Installation Guide
    • Web Collaborative Reviewer Installation Guide
    See the DITA CMS 4.2 documentation page for these documents.
  • The topworkload attribute in the roles.xml file is now documented. See Configure roles by editing roles.xml.
  • Added the procedure to Start the DITA CMS in debug mode.
