Change history


  • Even more control over the numbering of ordered lists. Specifying inheritnum in the outputclass attribute of an ordered list now causes the list item numbering to inherit from outer-level ordered lists. For example, using this feature (e.g. <ol outputclass="upper-alpha inheritnum">), the items of a list nested at level 2 are labelled "1.A.", "1.B.", "1.C.", etc.
  • Upgraded XMLmind Web Help Compiler (whc for short) to version 2.3.


  • XMLmind DITA Converter now requires Java 8+ in order to compile and run.

What is XMLmind DITA Converter?

XMLmind DITA Converter (ditac for short) is a serious alternative to the DITA Open Toolkit.

Out of the box, ditac allows to convert the most complex DITA 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 documents to production-quality XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1, HTML 4.01, XHTML 5, Web Help, Java™ Help, HTML Help, Eclipse Help, EPUB 2, EPUB 3, PDF, PostScript®, RTF, WordprocessingML (Word 2003+), Office Open XML (.docx, Word 2007+), OpenDocument (.odt, OpenOffice/LibreOffice 2+).

Like the DITA OT, ditac is free, open source, software.
