A new version of oXygen is available from our website
Version 9.2 introduces a new XML Author edition specially tuned for
content authors providing a well designed interface for XML editing by
keeping only the relevant authoring features. The major additions in
oXygen XML Editor 9.2 are related to the WYSIWYG-like editing support
and in particular to the DITA support. The general visual editing
improvements include displaying the resolved content in the editor and
navigation through links. With the new DITA features that include a new
DITA map editor, actions for inserting conref links, a tight integration
of the latest version of the DITA Open Toolkit, oXygen XML Editor
becomes the leading DITA editor and the easiest to use. Other
improvements are browsing of XML databases using WebDAV connections,
better handling of Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) text, support for
the Intel® XML Software Suite and multiple component updates.

transformation using Intel® XML Software Suite, oXygen XML Editor 9.2
provides special support to easily configure and use the Intel XML
Software Suite in its normal development work flow.
There are also improvements in the support for XML Schema, Schematron,
XML databases and XML editing.
A number of components were updated to their latest version. These
include the DITA Open Toolkit (220.127.116.11), the DocBook XML framework
(schema version 5.0 and stylesheets version 1.73.2) and the Saxon B XSLT
processor from Saxonica (18.104.22.168). oXygen XML editor supports also the
