XEP 4.14 released

RenderX has released XEP 4.14. This major release brings quite a lot of new features and enhancements:

  • An SVG backend has been added. The new backend generates a single SVG document that includes all pages.
  • XEP Intermediate Format (XEPOUT) files are supported as external vector graphics files, e.g. for fo:external-graphic (the first page is displayed).
  • A new option - IMAGE_INLINE_THRESHOLD - allows to control placement of image data inside a PostScript document: It can be included either in the document setup or in page setup section, depending on the option's value of and the number of an image's appearances in the document.
  • The number of pages generated by an fo:page-sequence may be forced to be a multiple of N by using force-page-count="xN".
  • PDF/A compliance has been improved.

XEPWin now supports input files with embedded stylesheets. XEPWin's memory management has been improved: It can use a temporary directory, saving more memory for formatting. Some bugs have been fixed in the PostScript generator. Support for page-number-citation-last in the FO namespace has been restored.

The DocBench bundle now includes oXygen XML Editor 10.

RenderX Exhibits at Oracle OpenWorld 2008

RenderX, the recognized leader in XML to print technology, will participate as an exhibitor at Oracle OpenWorld 2008 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, West from September 21–24, 2008 in Booth #3730.

Oracle OpenWorld is the world’s largest gathering of Oracle customers, partners, developers, and technology enthusiasts. The event offers a multitude of opportunities for learning, collaborating, and connecting with experts and peers in the field of information technology.

RenderX will be demonstrating our most current technologies and solutions, including XEP - a patented, commercial grade XSL formatting engine. XEP takes input in XML, applies an XSL transformation and then formats the Formatting Objects into PDF, AFP or PostScript, the de-facto standards for standard typography.

We will also be giving attendees a sneak peak at our soon-to-be-released products, to include demonstrations of DiType, a next generation formatting engine, DocuType, a combination of DiType and MediaWiki - as well as VisualXSL, a complete forms-based application for the Financial, Health Care, and Insurance Industries.

If you would like to schedule a targeted, personal demonstration of any of our technologies, contact RenderX sales at (650) 327-1000 (online form). We would be happy to accommodate you.

RenderX’s Solution Creates a Complete, Generic Framework with Modifiable Form Field Elements, Based on XML Templates

Banks, utility companies, retailers, insurance, and credit card companies have an increasing need to give their clients the ability to enter specific information about their accounts in pre-configured PDF forms via the web. This can be accomplished by offering internet-based application forms that are 100% custom to the applicant. The forms can be generated using information from a few upfront questions and known information from their account. Other fields can be filled with known information and even hidden to prevent their modification.

RenderX clients have an increasing need for creating dynamic PDF forms. Producing these forms can be accomplished by using RenderX’s XEP, an original XSL FO formatting engine, combined with iText to produce dynamic, fill-able, custom forms in a high-volume, multi-threaded application. Integrating RenderX XEP and XSL FO technology with iText has resulted in a 100% generic way to generate dynamic PDF forms for everyday applications. No further programming is necessary to generate dynamic, fill-able, custom PDF forms.

TransPromo, also known as "statement based marketing", integrates a TRANSactional document with proactive PROMOtional marketing. TransPromo provides an opportunity to blend marketing messages with must-read transaction statements such as invoices, statements, benefit confirmations, explanations, and other notifications to influence behavior and ultimately drive business volume. Banks, utilities, retailers, and credit card companies are now incorporating highly tailored messages based on the consumer’s buying habits into transaction documents to provide promotion information relevant to their specific needs and interests.

If you’re producing transactional customer communications such as statements, invoices, policy notifications, or shipping documents, you probably already have some of the basic elements you need to start using TransPromo to take your marketing campaigns to the next level. TransPromo advertising in a PDF, PostScript and AFP electronic and print format can easily be injected into your application with RenderX. Click here to view "Using RenderX for TransPromo" .
