In the next two or three weeks I’ll be posting some more information about the forthcoming features provided in Styler in the M020 release of Arbortext 6.0.
There were a lot of new features we wanted to provide in 6.0 and we managed to fit a lot it, but some features had to wait. So we’re taking the unusual step of adding some new functionality in the M020 release to bring our customers some extra, important capabilities.
Each posting over the next few weeks will focus on a specific area of new functionality to give you a good idea of what’s to come.
Firstly, we will look at the improvements we’re making to indexing. Traditionally, Styler documents have had a single index. We’ve now added functionality to allow users to create multiple indexes in the same document. You can also scope indexes to your XML hierarchy too, providing indexes scoped to chapters, sections and so on.
Next we will look out our new EPUB output. EPUB is becoming the standard eBook format and we’re happy to be able to provide users with that type of output from Styler. Styler users will be able to create styling specifically for EPUB, too.
Lastly, we will look at the extensive work we’ve done under the ‘accessibility’ banner which also has great knock-on value for all PDF and HTML outputs. This posting will show how we’re making tagged PDF available as well as giving control over the HTML tagging structures Styler creates.
I hope you’ll find these postings stimulating and interesting. Please feel free to comment or get in touch to talk about them further.
As with all forward-looking information, this is subject to change without notice.
