General ePub format question for PTC staffers (or others in the know)

Hi Folks,

Currently Arbortext support ePub2 as a format.

Epub3 has been around for a while - and so far I haven't seen anything that would lead me to believe that Arbortext will support anything newer in the near future.

So the question is, will Arbortext support ePub3 - or is ePub as an output format just being sustained at its current level with no plans for further development?

Thanks,

Rob.

Hi Rob,

As a Channel Partner, I have not heard of support coming for ePub 3, yet. That doesn't mean it is not on a roadmap in the future. Arbortext 7.0 was just released so a host of new features are most likely on the way.

That being said, Arbortext Publishing Engine is a robust publishing platform. PE could always be extended to support ePub 3.0 or any output with some customization.

Thanks Jeff Stevenson‌,

We have just opted for some minor configuration changes and post processing to generate ePub3 compliant files for the time being. If in future, they choose to add ePub3 compatibility, we'll just have to modify our publishing flow for that.

Thanks for the response,

Rob.
