DITA 1.2

June 2009

Release 5.4 of the Arbortext Editor includes a preliminary draft of the DITA 1.2 DTDs, XSDs, and related files and has been upgraded to support most, but not all, changes and new features in the DITA 1.2 specification. This support includes editing, output processing, and CMS support. PTC plans to upgrade to the official/final DTDs, XSDs, and related files when they become available. Additional DITA 1.2 features will be implemted in future releases. DITA 1.2 was also used internally within PTC for the development and distribution of our 5.4 product documentation.
