The main feature of version 9.0 is a CSS-based visual XML editor
allowing WYSIWYG like editing of XML documents. With an innovative
approach to XML authoring oXygen allows you to work with XML frameworks
(DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML, etc) easier than ever before. Version 9 adds
a new concept called Document Type that allow users to provide ready to
use support for a framework or an XML language and share that with other
users. This version also brings improved error reporting for validation
against Relax NG schemas and Schematron, additional side view helpers,
some component updates and a number of other features.

New in version 9.0:

The WYSIWYG like rendering of the visual XML editor is driven by CSS
stylesheets conforming with the W3C CSS 2.1 specification so that users
are not locked into a custom format. Some enhancements introduced by the
W3C CSS 3 working draft like CSS XML namespaces and the attr function
are also supported. The tagless editor comes with ready to use support
for largely used XML frameworks: DITA, DocBook 4 / DocBook 5, TEI P4 /
TEI P5 and XHTML. Both the CALS and HTML table models are supported.

The new Document Type concept allows to easily share between users
preconfigured support for an XML framework or language consisting of
default schema for validation, CSS stylesheets for WYSIWYG editing,
custom actions, document templates, XML catalogs and transformation

Incomplete error reports in validation against a Relax NG schemas like
"required attributes missing", "required elements missing" or
"unfinished element" were updated to report exactly what XML attributes
or elements are missing and what is expected to finish the element. The
diagnostics messages issued by a Schematron schema are displayed
together with the other validation errors. Schematron report messages
are treated as warnings.

The new outliner implementations for CSS and XQuery allow you to see
immediately the structure of your CSS and XQuery documents. Two new
views, the XML Elements View and the Entities View allow to easily
insert new elements and entities in your XML files.

There were many small but useful new features in oXygen XML editor
version 9, to take an example the spell checking is aware of xml:lang
values and this allows to check the spelling in documents that contain
content in more than one language.
