Syncro Soft has announced the immediate availability of version 11.2 of its XML Editor and XML Author containing a comprehensive set of tools supporting all the XML related technologies. Oxygen combines content author features like the CSS driven Visual XML editor with a fully featured XML development environment. It has ready to use support for the main document frameworks DITA, DocBook, TEI and XHTML and also includes support for all XML Schema languages, XSLT/XQuery Debuggers, WSDL analyzer, XML Databases, XML Diff and Merge, Subversion client and more.

New in version 11.2:
- Version 11.2 of Oxygen XML Editor improves the XML authoring, the XML development tools, the support for large documents and the SVN Client.
- The visual XML editing (Author mode) is available now as a separate component that can be integrated in Java applications or, as an Applet, in Web applications.
- Other XML Author improvements include automatic support for DITA reusable components, support for preserving the formatting for unchanged elements and an updated Author API containing a number of new extensions that allow customizing the Outline, the Breadcrumb and the Status Bar.
- The XSLT Debugger provides more flexibility and it is the first Debugger that can step inside XPath 2.0 expressions. The Saxon 9 EE bundled with Oxygen can be used to run XQuery 1.1 transformations. The XProc support was aligned with the recent update as W3C Proposed Recommendation and includes the latest Calabash XProc processor.
- Hunspell (the engine used by OpenOffice, Mozilla and others) is now used by Oxygen for spell checking. Oxygen ships dictionaries for English, German, French and Spanish but users can install any from the almost 100 available dictionaries.
- The support for large documents has been improved, including the support for documents with very long lines.
- SVN Client improves working copy load time, automatically refreshes the working copy on external file changes, makes repository browsing more responsive, adds support for repository imports at file level and for replacing resources, improves the handling of obstructed resources and the history support, allows creating branches/tags directly from the repository and offers options to print and save as image a revision graph.
