XMetaL Author Enterprise version 14.0 – New Features

Below is a list of new features in version 14, which was released March 2019.

  • The “Workbench” allows you to create and maintain collections of folders and files called “WorkSets” for quick access while you are working in XMetaL. The context menu lets you easily work with these items, similar to the context menu in Windows Explorer.
  • XMetaL supports editing of Lightweight DITA XML topics and maps. In this preview-level support only XDITA files can be authored, but you can add MDITA and HDITA topics to LwDITA maps, and publish LwDITA maps via DITA OT version 3.2.1.
  • Many of the user settings and preferences dialogs have been combined into a single hierarchical dialog. The new dialog includes a search/filter box allowing you to quickly find any option setting. XMetaL customizers can add their own settings panels to this unified dialog.
  • The Find and Replace dialog includes an option to highlight all occurrences of a search term within the current document.
  • Tracked changes are now visible in DITA-reused content; this can be turned on/off via the Options dialog.
  • DITA-reused content that contains unaccepted tracked changes inside can be made visible within the target/reusing document’s window.
  • Key spaces that you have associated with individual DITA topics can be remembered across sessions (via a setting in the Options dialog).
  • This version of XMetaL Author Enterprise includes DITA Open Toolkit Releases 3.2.1, 2.4.4, and 2.0. The default setting is for XMetaL to use DITA OT 3.2.1.
