Release Notes Docmenta V1.9.3 (Release date: 28.07.2018)

Docmenta 1.9.3 is a maintenance release that includes several bug-fixes and some new features and improvements. Docmenta 1.9.3 is released as Open-Source and provided on an "AS IS" basis without commercial support. Please read the license agreement and the following notes before installing Docmenta.

Installation and Upgrade notes

To create a new installation of Docmenta, proceed as described in the 'Installation' section of the documentation. If you have an existing installation of Docmenta and you want to upgrade to Docmenta 1.9.3, then proceed as described in the 'Upgrading' section of the documentation.

Bug-fixes / Updates

  • Added XPath Search. Choose "Extra → Find Nodes by XPATH " from the node's context menu:
     

     
    In the opened dialog enter a (boolean) XPATH expression and click "Okay". The search result lists all content-nodes that match the XPATH expression.
     
    Examples: To search for content nodes that contain a span element, enter span in the input field and click "Search". To search for span elements that have a class attribute, enter "span[@class]" (see screenshot below):
     
  • Added CKEditor for content editing. Be aware that CKEditor is still in testing phase. CKEditor is intended to replace the outdated TinyMCE editor (in upcoming versions of Docmenta).
     
    To select CKEditor as your default content editor, open the user profile and choose "CKEditor 4.7.3" from the content editor listbox:
     

     
    To change CKEditor settings, open the "Administration → Plug-ins" panel and click the "Configure" button for the "internal_ckeditor" plug-in.
     

     
    This opens the CKEditor settings dialog. Click the "Help" button in the title bar to get more information on the settings:
     
  • Added support for the HTML 5 figure and figcaption tags. Since Docmenta version 1.9.3 following two variants are supported to create labeled images:
     
    1) Use the img tag with title attribute. Example:
        <img src="sunset.png" title="Sunset example" height="240" />
            
    2) Use the figure and figcaption tags. Example:
        <figure>
            <img src="sunset.png" height="240" />
            <figcaption>Sunset example</figcaption>
        </figure>
            
    The rendering of figure and figcaption is defined by the predefined block-styles with ID "figure" and "figcaption". If the style "figcaption" is missing, then the style with ID "caption" is used instead. If non of the styles exist, then the browser's default rendering for figure and figcaption is used.
     
    Be aware that TinyMCE editor does not support the figure and figcaption tags. If a content node, that contains the figure tag, is opened in TinyMCE editor, then the figure tag is automatically converted to an img tag with title attribute. As a workaround, a content rule using the class org.docma.plugin.examples.XSLTRule could be configured that converts img tags with title attribute back to figure tags (when the content is saved). See 'Rule configuration' in the documentation on how to create custom content rules.
     
    CKEditor can be configured to support the figure and figcaption tags, by setting the "HTML5 figure tag" option in the CKEditor settings (see screenshot above) to "Enabled".
     
    For the WebHelp V2 output configuration, the setting "Output HTML5 figure tag" has been added. The setting defines whether the figure/figcaption tags, or div tags shall be used to render labeled images in the exported HTML (independant from the representation in the source):
     

     
    Furthermore, in the "Numbering" tab a checkbox has been added, to disable rendering of an img tag with title attribute as labeled image. This setting can be used, in case only the figure tag shall be used in the source to create labeled images.
  • Title inclusion (using the notation [#alias]) can now be used in section titles. Previously this was only supported within content nodes.
  • Added content rule class org.docma.plugin.examples.XSLTRule, which allows update of content nodes by applying user-defined XSLT scripts. See 'Rule configuration' in the documentation on how to create custom content rules.
  • Added check normalize_textalign to the Docmenta base checks (defined by the content rule org.docma.app.BaseRule). For example, this check is used to transform the attribute style="text-align:right" to class="align-right".
  • Added CTRL+S shortcut (Save) to internal text-editor.
  • Upgraded to Apache FOP 2.3.
  • Fixed WebHelp fulltext search for non-English languages.
  • Improved WebHelp fulltext search.
  • Fixed UI error for content nodes with non-wellformed XHTML.
  • Fixed PDF header/footer settings getting lost.
  • Fixed symbolic character entity issues.
