Bluestream Corp. has released XDocs 1.1, an XML-based, single-source content management system designed to enable organizations to publish content to multiple channels. XDocs is a DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) enabled XML content management system for organizations that are looking to maximize content reuse and repurposing. XDocs is a standards-compliant single-sourcing solution that can enable technical communicators to create, manage, and store large volumes of both XML and non-XML content.
Features of XDocs 1.1 include: multiple profiles, designed to allow for conditional processing and variable insertion at publish time, depending on the pre-selected profile (e.g. variant A vs. variant B of a particular document); new documents, where new versions of documents are automatically created on check-in and old versions are maintained; publishing, so that variables can be embedded in content that are set to particular values at publish time; XML Editor Interoperability, where XDocs can work with any XML editor currently on the market; PDF, XDocs ships with a RenderX XEP Server allowing for PDF output. FOP is also included; knowledgebase, where XDocs ships with a configurable knowledgebase for displaying content on line; and a new user interface.
