Subject: [ANN] Release of XMLmind XSL-FO Converter v6.0

Release of XMLmind XSL-FO Converter v6.0. Highlights:

- Extension attribute xfc:label-format has been enhanced to support multi-level numbering (e.g. "1.A.a.") in fo:list-blocks.

- New extension attribute xfc:render-as-table may be used as a quick and easy workaround for one of the most annoying limitations of XFC: the very poor rendering of fo:block âdivisionsâ having borders and/or background colors (e.g. complex notes, admonitions, sidebars).

- Modified the DocBook, DITA and XHTML XSL stylesheets so they use these new extension attributes.

- All XFC extension attributes are introduced in new article "How to adapt your existing XSLT stylesheet to the specificities of XMLmind XSL-FO Converter" (http://www.xmlmind.com/foconverter/adapt_xslt/adapt_xslt.html).

- Updated ALL software components (FOP, Batik, Saxon, ditac, etc) in XMLmind XSL Utility and XMLmind XSL Server.

- A few bug fixes, most of them related to the DOCX output format.

- Now officially supported on Javaâ 11 platforms and on macOS Mojave (10.14).

What is XMLmind XSL-FO Converter?

XMLmind XSL-FO Converter is an XSL-FO processor similar to Apache FOP, RenderX XEP or Antenna House XSL Formatter, except that it generates RTF, WML, ODT and DOCX file formats rather than PDF.

More importantly, this commercial product comes with a handy desktop application called "XMLmind XSL Utility" (http://www.xmlmind.com/foconverter/xsl_utility.html) which makes it easy converting DITA documents to a variety of formats (PDF, RTF, WML, ODT, DOCX, HTML, EPUB, Web Help, etc).

XMLmind XSL Utility also makes it easy customizing the deliverables it generates (PDF, DOCX, EPUB, Web Help, etc) and this, without modifying configuration files by hand and without prior knowledge of XSLT.
