XyEnterprise has released ContentaView 3.3. Structured data, including S1000D and DITA, can be supported in this package. ContentaView 3.3 is an updated version of XyEnterprise’s information delivery software for interactive, textual, and multimedia content via Web or DVD/CD-ROM. The new version adds a filtering model for S1000D, an international specification for the management, and production of technical publications, as well as other digital data standards. ContentaView’s filtering model can be configured to support legacy data, proprietary data, and other emerging standards. ContentaView 3.3’s configurable presentation layer allows publishers to customize within the user interface--colors, buttons, layout, menus, and print output. The Interactive 3D Simulation allows publishing of 3D models that have been generated from existing CAD or Engineering data, reducing development time and costs. Some additional enhancements to the ContentaView software include acknowledgement of warnings and cautions, configurable by skill level, as well as full-text and categorical searching. These features have been designed to help ensure the safety of any technical procedures being performed, and allow users to access the information they need quickly and efficiently.
XyEnterprise has also announced the release of Contenta DITA 1.4. The software’s new features extend DITA Specialization support to out-of-thebox tools, enhance DITA Author Support for authoring tools, provide collaborative review using XMetaL Reviewer, support the latest version of the DITA Open Toolkit, integrate with SDL’s Translation Management System, and provide enhanced graphics support for print and online delivery formats. Highlights of the latest version of XyEnterprise’s Contenta DITA solution include: Integration with SDL’s Translation Management System that allows end users to upload only those topics requiring translation, track the status of translated topics while in the TMS, and import translated topics back into the Contenta repository; With Contenta DITA 1.4, specialization allows sites to add new data types to support unique requirements; XyEnterprise continues to support the latest DITA offerings of the major XML Authoring tools -- Arbortext Editor 5.3, FrameMaker 7.2 and XMetaL 5.0 Enterprise Edition; With integration to XMetaL Reviewer that enables collaborative review, Contenta DITA 1.4 provides detailed reports of all editorial activity during the review cycle; Contenta DITA 1.4 can store and deliver any graphic type to the DITA Open Toolkit for print or online delivery formats, including mobile devices that require new graphic types that aren’t typically used in online and PDF deliveries; The DITA Open Toolkit is an important component in most DITA implementations.
