XEP 4.21 released

RenderX has released XEP 4.21. This major release brings new output features and significant improvements:

  • Extended support of Section 508 accessibility features via new RenderX extensions:
    • @rx:pdf-structure-type: allows to override structure types for accessible PDF documents;
    • @rx:alt-description, @rx:actual-text, and @rx:abbreviation: alternative descriptions for accessible PDF documents;
    • @rx:pdf-artifact-type and @rx:pdf-artifact-subtype: control type and subtype of PDF artifacts.
  • Improvements in the UAX #9 bidi algorithm.
  • Improved diagnostics when XEPOUT crashes.

A number of bugs have been fixed, including relaxed image PDF requirements to avoid "Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream" failures, re-encoding of fonts in PostScript, multiple color profiles in PDF/A, incorrect number of color components in PDF/A and PDF/X, incorrect @text-align=inside/outside behavior in RTL scripts, patterns in PostScript, and stack overflow error during the generation of linearized PDF.

The DocBench bundle now includes oXygen XML Editor 14.1.

XEP 4.20 released

RenderX has released XEP 4.20. This major release brings new output features and significant improvements:

  • The installers for both Java and Windows versions of XEP have been updated.
  • XEP (Java) installer provides an option to download, install and configure GNU FreeFonts - an excellent collection covering a wide range of languages and symbols.
  • Multicolumn footnote balancing algorithm is now more customizable.

A number of bugs have been fixed, including relaxed TIFF requirements to avoid failures, correct dimensions for images in XEPOUT, handling of unmatched change bars, corrections for bidi-neutral symbols, @initially-selected attribute for radio-buttons in PDF forms, and improvements in PostScript output, such as combining crop marks and text decoration bug, invalid headers on colored bookmarks, and collapsing custom comments.

The DocBench bundle now includes oXygen XML Editor 14.0.

RenderX Introduces CloudFormatting Services

RenderX announced today the initial release of the CloudFormatting services for creating documents on the fly through simple web-based interfaces. The solution allows any customer to leverage the power of dynamic PDF reporting for their solutions with little to no programming. The service receives XML content from any application, dynamically formats that content through the customer's design templates including text, tables, images, and barcodes to produce PDFs that can be dynamically streamed back to the application or sent directly to the web browser.

RenderX has been piloting the concept with several customers to tune performance over the past several months. “With zero downtime, MSO is delivering on-demand statistics for the more than 2,000,000 requests over the past six months. The performance on this new software is truly remarkable”, said Del Ruiz, Executive Director of MSO. MSO is the leader in managing and delivering official USA gymnastics scores to the general public, with over 110,000 athletes and professionals covering about 3,500 competitions per year. Len Schultz, partner at WineQuest, used RenderX’s CloudFormatter service for dynamic creation of wine menus for leading restaurant and hotel chains throughout the country. “RenderX put together a great solution for us giving our 700+ restaurant and hotel locations the ability to create and print in-house perfectly formatted, perfectly spelled, and perfectly organized wine menus on the fly. Over 6,000 menus (with very complex formatting rules) have been reliably generated in real time over the past six months.”

RenderX will provide drop-in code in various languages such as C#, Java or JavaScript so that anyone can use the service for formatting documents. Users can pick from a selection of pre-built templates or design their own using RenderX’s VisualXSL template designer. Submittals to the service can be through SOAP or REST services, returning PDFs dynamically in a stream for presentment in the web browser or for storage on the local disk. Since the process runs 100% in memory on the Cloud, no information from any process is ever stored on RenderX’s Cloud.

A version of the system which stamps created pages with a small marketing message is free for anyone to use, with unstamped versions of the service priced per volume. The CloudFormatter client can be downloaded for free from the CloudFormatter page.
