Arbortext Unveils Epic 4.2

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.
