Arbortext Version 7.0 Released

Summary of SPR Fixes in Arbortext 7.0 F000 release

Arbortext 7.0 was released last week. We saw a preview of what was coming last month and have been eagerly awaiting the release. There’s some big improvements with this release and some special treats for the early adopters.

What’s in the release? Support for DITA 1.3. A new JavaScript IDE for APP source in both Styler and APP. And a host of other features, including one that our customers requested!

7.0 will require new license generation, but 7.0 licenses are backwards compatible and will support older releases at the same time.  If you have an active maintenance contract, you can download Arbortext 7.0 at no additional cost from the PTC website.

We’re testing 7.0 for our customers right now and we’ll be talking about what we find in the Mastermind session in October. Come to the Mastermind if you want a look at 7.0 before you start testing your environment and getting ready to upgrade.  If you need any help testing your customizations or stylesheets, we can help! Join the Arbortext Mastermind or contact us at support@single-sourcing.com.

For now, this post will take you through the highlights of the release. Details on each feature and specific bug fixes contained in the release can be found in the release notes on the PTC website.

Interview with Berry Braster, Etteplan

When I say “The Book” and “Tedopress” in the same breath, everyone knows which book I mean. Tedopress is well known for giving away the book that defines best practices for writing for international audiences, for preparing your content for translation.  The  name of the book is “The New Language in International Business, Simplified English” and you can request your free copy here [Ed: The book is no longer available, 2016-12].

Year after year, I always looked forward to seeing Berry. I’ve had The Book for as long as I can remember. It was one of the first references I got when I was learning. Continue reading “Interview with Berry Braster, Etteplan”
