With the release of DeltaXML Merge Version 4.1, the next iteration of DeltaXML’s market leading XML change management solution delivers a number of key changes, providing users with richer functionality and improved usability as a means to further enhance the reviewing and authoring processes.
The DeltaXML platform reduces processing time needed for authoring, collaborating and reviewing cycles around publishing XML content. Whereas the DeltaXML Core product is well known for its ability to compare two XML data or document files and represent the changes in a single delta file, DeltaXML Merge takes this a big step forward by removing the restriction of just two files and enabling changes from multiple files to be accurately and clearly represented. DeltaXML Merge has the ability not only to identify change in a variety of XML versions from the original, but also to allow manual or automatic acceptance or rejection of change.
First released in February 2015, DeltaXML Merge was designed to replace the previous DeltaXML Sync by providing users with the ability to operate at word granularity, order-less merge and keying support, differences in output representation and output formats and a completely new API.
Building on its original successes, DeltaXML Merge Version 4.1 improves functionality and usability in multiple ways:
- Simplified representation of change within XML content, allowing users to better identify and understand the representation of change within XML content and enabling them to further reduce reviewing process time.
- Support for DeltaXML’s integration into version control systems such as Mercurial and Git, providing users with the ability to record changes made to documentation and remove the risk of losing data by merging incorrect content.
- Support for automated merging with version priority settings, allowing user specification of content importance on a version by version basis.
Phillip Barratt, Global Development Manager at DeltaXML explains that “removing the restrictions of comparing and merging two or more XML files represents an ideal use case for DeltaXML Merge users, as it improves the efficiencies of large groups of collaborators allowing them to more easily and quickly produce, review and finalise XML files.”
DeltaXML aims to provide its users with powerful XML change management, providing innovative ways to support its growing client base with managing their reviewing and authoring processes and DeltaXML Merge 4.1 is believed to be the next step in successfully achieving this.
