After 2 years of beating about the bush I am officially closing this project, if anybody want to fork it over I moved the official repository to GitHub: https://github.com/cvedovini/dita-op
I may close this blog and the SourceForge repository in the future.
I admit it is stale, but it is not dead, not yet :)
Actually what happened is that, given the economic downturn, last year I though I should not refuse any of the jobs I was offered. I finally ended up with so much work that I had no time left for this project. I expect things to slow down in the next months so that I will be able to dedicate a significant amount of time to the DITA-OP.
In the mean time, the nightly build of the editor has the latest bug fixes and enhancements. Especially it has a new ditamap editor. Unfortunately some users have reported issues with the Galileo release of Eclipse. I guess this is the first thing I will have to check.
See you soon,
Some time ago I have been contacted by Sean Healy, owner of Wild Bassin Media and editor at the DITA & XML Community of the Rockies, to do an interview about this project. Three weeks ago we finally made it and the podcast is now online.
It was my first time but Sean has been very nice to me. In the first part we talk about the history and the future of the DITA-OP and DITA and there will be a second podcast discussing cloud computing and social networks (other things I am currently working on).
Hope you will find it interresting :)
I noticed some of you are using comments here to ask for support. I admit this is convenient, however there are several drawbacks to this approach.
Instead, Sourceforge is offering “trackers” that have all needed properties for a good management of support requests (and bug and feature requests), the tracker for the DITA-OP Support Requests is at this address: http://sourceforge.net/tracker2/?atid=1074049&group_id=228491.
While comments are still possible on posts, I disabled them on pages.
Thanks for using the tracker.
This post to announce that milestone 2 of the DITA Open Platform is now released.
Starting with this milestone the Platform has two main components, the Editor and the EasyTrac package.
The Editor has some bug fixes and minor improvements (like the ability to choose which version of the DITA specifications to use) but what is really new is the EasyTrac package.
You will find anything necessary to get you started in the documentation section of this site.
Happy new year to everyone!
