[ANN] Release of XMLmind XSL-FO Converter v6.3

Hussein Shafie

Release of XMLmind XSL-FO Converter v6.3. Highlights:

- XMLmind XSL-FO Converter engine:

* It is now possible to add metadata (e.g. the usual author, title, date, etc, but also custom metadata) to the documents created by XFC. (XFC equivalent of MS-Word "File|Info|Properties, Advanced Properties".)

* It is now possible to control the type of changes which can be made to the documents created by XFC. (XFC equivalent of MS-Word "File|Info|Protect Document, Restrict Editing".) For example, XFC can now generate a DOCX file which cannot be modified at all, unless the user types a password.

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

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" (https://www.xmlmind.com/foconverter/xsl_utility.html) which makes it easy converting DITA, DocBook, XHTML and XSL-FO 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.
