DeltaXML improves CALS table handling to merge products

DeltaXML announced the release of new versions of their products XML Merge and DITA Merge, featuring improved handling of changes in CALS tables, as already available in XML Compare. It also adds the ability to ignore the order of columns, which means that a change in order doesn’t trigger delta markup in the result. Those used to seeing row duplications in their table results will be pleased to know that these have been dramatically reduced.

With XML Merge 11.0.0 and DITA Merge 7.0.0, this new table algorithm is included in merge products. This has added more complexity, but these products, as well as being easy to configure, produce the most rigorous and accurate comparisons. If some of the table versions have different structures, it’s necessary to select a ‘master’ table from which to create the result, which is used as the priority to determine which version to use as the master. The spans in that version are prioritised and other spans are created around them as necessary to ensure table validity. This approach helps to keep the result table as compact as possible while still representing how the table content has changed.

ElevenLabs releases Eleven Multilingual v2

ElevenLabs, a provider of voice AI software, launched a new multilingual voice generation model capable of accurately producing “emotionally rich” AI audio in nearly 30 languages. ElevenLabs also confirmed today that the platform is officially coming out of Beta.

The advancement, based on in-house research, will allow creators to produce localized audio content for international markets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Bloomreach supports OAuth 2.0 authentication

Bloomreach, provider of a Commerce Experience Cloud, announced the support of Open Authorization (OAuth) 2.0 authentication for webhooks, an industry standard protocol for authentication that enables third-party applications to access a user’s data without sharing their credentials. Businesses will now have the ability to integrate Bloomreach Engagement with third-party applications that require OAuth through webhooks, safely connecting real-time data in and out Bloomreach and boosting marketing personalization without the need to switch platforms.

The use of webhooks plays a crucial role in facilitating real-time data synchronization and triggering actions across multiple marketing channels. By leveraging webhooks effectively, marketers can deliver personalized, timely, and consistent experiences across touchpoints, to improve customer engagement and satisfaction. As marketers deliver these enhanced experiences, the OAuth 2.0 authentication method for webhooks maintains the security and integrity of the exchanged data. By enabling controlled access to protected resources, it mitigates the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.

OAuth 2.0 authentication via webhooks opens the door for brands to frictionlessly integrate Bloomreach Engagement with third-party platforms and applications in their tech stack that require this authentication method. This includes Microsoft Azure, Commercetools, Criteo Marketing, Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Listrak, and Talkdesk, among others.
