Syncro Soft, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, is proud to announce the immediate availability for Oxygen Content Fusion 6.1, the web-based collaboration platform for content creation!

Version 6.1 introduces exciting new features, such as the Due Date for review tasks, to ensure effective project management. The due date is visible in various places in the user interface and reviewers will receive email notifications to remind them that they need to finalize their task in time.

Single Sign On support is another much requested feature. This is now available by using OpenID Connect, thus allowing users to authenticate using an organization's SSO system, offering a secure and simplified login procedure. Existing Oxygen Content Fusion users with an account created via LDAP or sign up can use a third party app that implements the OpenID Connect protocol.

With the new Comment-only Review Mode, task owners will now have better control as it allows them to limit the reviewers to only have the ability to add comments without changing the content. This ensures that the document content is always seen in its original form by all reviewers.

The newly introduced Request Re-Review action enables task owners to request additional reviews should the need arise (a typical scenario for utilizing this feature is after addressing comments provided by other collaborators and requiring a review of these new change). This resets the status of the review from Finalized to In Progress for all reviewers and they will also be notified via email that there is a request to review the task again.

Oxygen Content Fusion 6.1 also ensures a superior degree of control over finalized review status even when other collaborators make changes to documents within the task. The Finalized state will change for that particular user only if they make changes to the task documents, or if a task owner either re-opens the task or requests a re-review of the task.

Review status information is explicitly detailed, showing the number of reviewers assigned to the task and their finalized review status. Seamless integration with Oxygen XML Editor/Author is better handled by allowing tasks to be marked as Integrated once complete. The tasks in the Integrated state cannot be edited and are hidden by default, thus enabling you to remain focused only on the tasks that you are actively working on. In the web interface, the hidden integrated tasks can be displayed on demand.

Now, both task owners and reviewers have the ability to add files to a task, either by uploading an existing file or by creating a new file from a template. Moreover, keeping track of tasks has been made easier with a sortable list, and the Task Activity page has been redesigned to provide users with a view of all the changes made by collaborators. Clicking on a file name now opens a comparison view of the document, highlighting all modifications made in a clear manner.
