Managing structured content in complex documentation environments has never been easier
October 2017, Vancouver, Canada: Bluestream Database Software Corp—a provider of DITA-enabled Component Content Management System (CCMS) solutions—is pleased to announce the release of XDocs 5.0, which offers powerful, new release management tools to the professional technical documentation market.
In technical documentation departments, numerous versions of documentation are often maintained for the purpose of supporting multiple product releases. XDocs 5.0 allows users to work independently on versions of topics on different branches. Often in this environment, there is a need to merge particular changes into subsequent or previous branches of documentation. When faced with multiple revisions on topic versions across branches, XDocs 5.0 can easily show the changes and potential conflicts, and a user can decide which changes to merge into a topic version on any branch.
Bluestream VP of Sales and Marketing Nenad Furtula says,
“Release Management functionality poses some complex technical challenges and the beauty in the XDocs interpretation of the problem lies in the elegance of implementation, namely, in the ease of use from the end-users perspective. “
In order to provide a superior functionality and experience with respect to Release Management functionality, Bluestream has partnered with and integrated best-in-class technology from DITA Merge by DeltaXML (https://www.deltaxml.com) and oXygen XML Editor by SyncroSoft (http://www.oxygenxml.com). The transparent integration is seamless and provides an unparalleled end-user experience.
In addition to a suite of powerful release management tools, XDocs 5.0 continues to offer users a standards compliant single-sourcing solution that enables everyone within an organization to create, manage, store, and intelligently publish large volumes of both XML and non-XML content.
