Release of XMLmind XML Editor v10.2


  • DITA Map/BookMap, DocBook Assembly, Ebook Specification configurations: the "Open Topic R/O" and "Open Topic" buttons found in the toolbar have been renamed to "Open All Topics R/O" and "Open All Topics". These buttons now open all the topics and maps referenced in the selected elements and their descendants. For example, if you want to open all the topics referenced in a DITA map, simply select the map and click "Open All Topics".
  • The dialog box displayed by the "Find & Replace" toolbar button and by some of the "Search|Find and Replace Element" menu items (all invoking command searchReplaceElement) is now non-blocking, that is, not modal anymore, which makes it much more convenient to use.

    For example, you may now use the dialog box which is being displayed to search several documents in a row with the same search criteria. The previous version of this dialog box forced you, for each document to be searched, (1) to close the old instance of the dialog box, (2) click "Find & Replace" to display a new instance of the dialog box, (3) use its "History" menu to select the last search criteria being used.

  • The "Hunspell Spell Checker" add-on, leveraging Hunspell, now works on an Apple® M1 (ARM®) processor. The Hunspell engine has been upgraded to latest 1.7.0 version on all supported platforms except Windows. The Linux 32-bit and Mac OS X 32-bit platforms are no longer supported. The Windows 32-bit and Windows 64-bit platforms are both supported but it's still older Hunspell version 1.3.2 which is used on these platforms.
  • "FlatLaf Look and Feel" add-on: updated FlatLaf to version 2.3.
  • Upgraded XMLmind DITA Converter (ditac for short) to version 3.11.

Bug fixes:

  • In some cases, an XInclude element containing a xi:fallback element was not correctly saved/loaded to/from the string form used by XXE clipboard.
  • DITA and LwDITA configurations: an image element did not depend on some of its “visual” attributes like width, height, etc. For example, using the Attributes tool to change the height attribute of an image to "100" had no immediate visual effect on the styled view of the topic.
  • All DocBook configurations: "xsl/fo/alt_param.xsl" contained a "component.booklist.title.properties" xsl:attribute-set having missing space-after attributes.

Possible incompatibilities:

  • In order to go on with the removal of rarely —if ever— used features started in version 10.0, removed the indicator content object (CSS proprietary extension similar to label except that indicator was rendered using a set of images rather than text).
