Version 2011

Version 2011 Release 3

Features that are new in StyleVision Version 2011 Release 3 are listed below.

 

Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility: StyleVision offers support for Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9). CSS styles and HTML5 elements that are supported by IE 9 are supported in the SPS design interface. Authentic View and HTML Preview will show the IE 9 rendering of the output document. In the Properties dialog, you can modify the IE-compatibility of the SPS.
Improved support for image formats: Better support for the TIFF, SVG, and JPEG XR formats.
PXF file support: The PXF file format has been specially developed by Altova to package the SPS design with related files (such as the schema file, source XML file, image files used in the design, and XSLT files for transformation of the source XML to an output format). The benefit of the PXF file format is that all the files required for Authentic View editing and for the generation of output from Authentic View can be conveniently distributed in a single file.
XML Signatures: An SPS can have an XML signature configured for it. When this is done, the Authentic View user can sign the Authentic XML document based on that SPS. The signature of signed documents can also be verified in Authentic View. This enables Authentic users to to transport their documents with a built-in security measure.

 

Version 2011 Release 2

Features that are new in StyleVision Version 2011 Release 2 are listed below.

 

Multiple Document Output: The output generated by the SPS can be designed to be split into multiple documents. In the design, New Document templates are created and content placed in them. Each New Document template generates a separate document in the output.
User-Defined XPath Functions: The user can define XPath functions which can be used anywhere in the document where XPath functions may be used.
Images from inline data: Images can be generated from Base-16 and Base-64 encoded text in the XML document. Consequently, images can be stored directly in the source XML document as text. An SPS can now decode such text and render the image.
ASPX Interface for Web Applications: With this feature, HTML web pages can be quickly updated. StyleVision generates, from an SPS, all the files necessary for an ASPX application. When the web page (a .aspx file) is refreshed, the source data (including any updates) is dynamically transformed via XSLT to the web page.
Combo Boxes: The design capability for combo boxes has been extended. The visible values in the dropdown list of the combo box as well as the corresponding values placed in the XML file can be separately specified.
PDF Bookmarks: A simpler mechanism to generate bookmarks in PDF output. In previous versions, the Table of Contents was used as the template for generating PDF bookmarks. While the TOC mechanism is a powerful one and is very useful for complex structures, the new PDF Bookmarks alternative simplifies the creation of non-complex bookmark tree structures.
Charts: The following additional chart types are supported: stacked bar charts, area charts, stacked area charts, candlestick charts, and overlay charts.
Barcodes: This new design component enables barcodes to be easily inserted in the design. Barcode images are generated on the fly and placed in the output documents.
Conditional presence: Certain design components have a conditional presence property. A conditional design component will be created in the output only if the condition specified for it is fulfilled.

 

Version 2011 Release 1

Features that are new in StyleVision Version 2011 Release 1 are listed below.

 

CALS/HTML Tables: The XML Tables feature of earlier versions has been improved and renamed to CALS/HTML Tables. If a CALS or HTML table structure is defined in the SPS design's DTD or schema, you can specify in the design that CALS/HTML tables should be processed. These table structures, if present in the XML instance file, will then be correctly sent to the output as tables.
Charts: This SPS design element provides a graphical representation of data in the source XML document. It is set up by specifying a sequence of items for each axis of the chart. StyleVision then automatically generates the chart in the various output formats.
XBRL Charts: Data from XBRL instance files can be represented as charts in the various output formats.
New from XSLT: An SPS can be created from an XSLT-for-HTML or an XSLT-for-FO. Template structure and styling in the XSLT will be created in the SPS. You can then modify the SPS components and add content and formatting to the SPS.
Integration in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. This extends support to the latest version of Visual Studio, which is in addition to support for versions 2005 and 2008. Support for Visual Studio 2003 has been discontinued.
Integration in Eclipse 3.6. This extends support to the latest version of the Eclipse platform, which is in addition to support for versions 3.4 and 3.5. Support for Eclipse 3.3 has been discontinued.
Authentic Scripting Enables additional flexibility and interactivity in Authentic View.
