Version 2024 Release 2 of Altova RaptorXML Server was announced on April 23, 2024. Learn about all the new features below and update to the latest version.

RaptorXML Server 2024r2 (April 23, 2024)RaptorXMLRaptorXML+XBRL
YAML support
Support for XBRL Report Packages 1.0

YAML support

YAML, short for "YAML Ain't Markup Language," is a human-readable data serialization format. Its concise and easy to understand syntax, combined with its ability to represent complex data structures, has made it a popular choice for configuration files, data exchange, and other applications.

RaptorXML Server now provides high-performance validation of YAML documents. Since YAML does not include a schema specification, YAML docs are validated against JSON Schema.

Support for XBRL Report Packages 1.0

XBRL reports are usually made of multiple files (XBRL instance document, XBRL Taxonomies, linkbase files, etc.) that must be packaged together. XBRL Report Packages provide a standardized way for combining XBRL reports and all their dependencies for efficient distribution and consumption.

An XBRL Report Package is an archive (.xbri or .xbr) that contains an XBRL or iXBRL report together with its supporting documents.

In Version 2024 Release 2, RaptorXML+XBRL Server adds XBRL Report Packages 1.0 to the long list of XBRL-related standards it supports for high-performance validation and processing.
