Arbortext Announces Launch of Epic Editor 4.3

Arbortext, Inc., a global provider of XML-based multichannel publishing software, has announced that its upcoming release of Epic Editor version 4.3 will provide significant improvements for designers, developers, and business users who want to deliver dynamic content while lowering costs. In addition to several authoring enhancements, Epic Editor 4.3 will contain new or improved support for XML schemas, thePublishing Pipeline, the XML User Interface (XUI), XSL-FO, and ActiveX.

Epic Editor 4.3 will include a simplified toolbar; real-time spelling check; and the Publishing Pipeline, which reportedly provides the developer with an easier, faster way to configure, customize, and extend publishing processes. XUI lets developers easily create dynamic dialog boxes that respond to changing conditions and prompt for appropriate information based on those changes. Support for ActiveX enables Epic Editor to incorporate other applications to extend its capabilities. According to the announcement, this provides easier configuration and customization for developers and business users as they work with MathML (for equations), SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), and forms created in Visual Basic.

Epic Editor 4.3 will ship this summer. All Arbortext customers under maintenance are eligible to receive the Epic Editor 4.3 upgrade (which will be automatically sent to them) at no charge.
