|Arbortext, Inc., a provider of XML-based software that enables the
creation, editing, and publishing of information froma single source of
content to multiple media types, has announced the availability of Epic
4.2. This latest version supports collaboration through change tracking,
in-line editingof document components, and easier conversion of multiple
content formats to XML.
Epic 4.2 also enhances Arbortext's long-standing support of XML standards
through a combination of full support for XSL by offering both XSLT and
XSL-FO publishing engines. Because XSLT allows online publishing and XSL-FO
enables print publishing, organizations that implement Epic 4.2 can build
an automated multichannel publishing system.
Epic Editor's change-tracking capability fully supports the process
of information creation, review, and approval so that groups of authors
and editors can work collaboratively to provide customers with fresh, consistent,
and complete information on all types of media.
The in-line editing of compound documents in Epic 4.2 lets authors edit
document components directly within the same window instead of launching
separate windows. When an author tries to change a component, Epic automatically
checks it out or protects it from changes based on an inquiry to the repository.
Available since 1991, Arbortext's standards-based software supports
technical-, reference-, and catalog-publishing applications and is installed
by 3,500 customers, including over 300 of the Global 2000 companies. Current
customers are AT&T, IBM, Nokia, Nortel Networks, Sun Microsystems,
International Thomson Publishing, and West Group.
