Blast Radius introduced XMetaL 4.5 to simplify the creation of reusable business content. The new “Smart Customization Generator” automatically generates style sheets and behavior customizations from a DTD or schema. These are instantly usable in XMetaL Author and XMAX (XMetaL for ActiveX). When a customization file is updated and saved in XMetaL Developer, XMetaL Author and XMAX (XMetaL for ActiveX) now automatically update themselves to use the new version of the file. Developers can now create application-level customizations that apply to all DTDs and schemas. This simplifies the development of customizations, such as CMS integrations, that are independent of any particular document type. Authors now have the flexibility to move or copy content, including multiple cells, within and among tables using a click, drag-and-drop method. CALS, HTML and XHTML table models are supported. The CSS editor has been streamlined and simplified. Completely revamped project wizards in XMetaL Developer are simpler to use and have an improved workflow. www.xmetal.com, www.blastradius.com
