Arbortext is more than an Editor. Arbortext is really a full platform from editing to publishing and content management. Arbortext is the only fully-functional, end-to-end, pure XML, enterprise-level DITA solution.

In this presentation, Liz Fraley is going to show Arbortext Editor 6.0 (with maybe a little bit about Styler thrown in). We’ll focus on usability improvements and enhancements for DITA support. There are a lot of new changes that everyone who’s an everyday user has been happy to see.

The OASIS DITA standard began with IBM and it began in Arbortext. PTC/Arbortext was the only vendor invited to be a charter member of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee and still participates on that committee today. IBM Editing staff continues to use Arbortext Editor as well. Support for DITA 1.2 was available as early as the 5.4 M50 Release in June of last year.

Who should attend

Anyone interested in moving to DITA now or in the future, anyone who has already begun that transition but is looking for a better way, and anyone who is just plain curious.
