Syncro Soft, the developer of the Oxygen XML suite of products, is proud to announce the immediate availability for Oxygen Content Fusion 6.2, the web-based collaboration platform for content creation!

The focus of this release was to redesign the user interface after analyzing the possible workflows, updating the layout to include more information and making the relevant actions at each step easily accessible, as well as updating the embedded visual editor that is based upon the Oxygen XML Web Author technology.

The new layout adjusts the fonts and spacing to include more information on each page, provides intuitive navigation controls and, in some cases, it extends the working area to take advantage of the full width of the page.

Users now have the ability to easily find the tasks they want to focus on by filtering the list of review tasks based on the task name. Task management actions can now be performed directly from the task list, so you can delete a task or mark it as integrated directly from the list of your tasks. The task activity view focuses on the changes made in each user interaction, but also provides actions to compare the selected version of the file with the latest version or open the latest version.

Content Fusion's visual editor was updated to integrate the latest changes implemented in Oxygen XML Web Author 26.1.0. Some of the interesting new features added for the visual editor include the ability for DITA users to easily switch profiling conditions and choose whether to hide the excluded content or show it as grayed out, and the Outline pane also now distinguishes nodes filtered by a DITAVAL file. When Markdown content is pasted within DITA, DocBook, TEI, or XHTML documents, it is automatically converted to the target vocabulary by the smart paste functionality. The Unicode support was improved to better support surrogate characters (e.g. emoji characters) and the text mode is now available in read-only mode for concurrent editing sessions. Additionally, the Split action now automatically inserts required first child elements.

When developers create customizations for the Web Author visual editor, they can now use the new CSS Inspector to easily view the styles applied to the selected element. Additionally, a validation process for uploading frameworks was introduced, ensuring that customized frameworks remain error-free.

To enhance the filtering capabilities, a new loading option is available that allows plugin developers to control whether content excluded by a DITAVAL filter is displayed as grayed out or completely hidden. Furthermore, a new API that enables the addition of a toolbar in a side view empowers developers to better customize the layout of the side-views contributed by their plugins.
