  • More easily understand the context in which users are working in

Search

Ability to search by

  • Specific object types and workflow statuses
  • People and dates
  • In the context of a specific map
  • In the context of a specific branch (DRM)

Multiple Assignments

The assignment has been completely redesigned

  • Assign an object to multiple roles
  • New “mark as finished” mode

Manage Ditavals

New Object in the CCMS

  • Create a ditaval
  • Edit/review a ditaval
  • Search for a ditaval

Create Map Instance (DRM)

New feature to “copy” a map to another branch​​​​​​​​​

IXIASOFT Dynamic Release Management

  • [DEV-12696] In a DRM deployment, users were unable to insert a cross-reference to a topic that existed in multiple versions when one of those versions was a different instance. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12324] In a custom DRM configuration, when adding a container to a locked map in DITA Map view, the container was added with a keyref instead of an href. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12299] In a DRM deployment, re-importing an image with a hyphen in the filename caused the portion of the filename after the hyphen to be discarded and the incorrect image was overwritten. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-11820] When comparing two DRM versions, conflicts were shown for maps when the only difference was the container reference. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-11008] When exporting a map in DRM, the format=”ditamap” was missing on the ditamap keydef. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-9687] In a DRM deployment, users were able to execute simultaneous Create New Instance actions on a map which created two maps with the same primary version. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-6939] Renaming a DRM version failed if the current version name had a trailing space. This issue has been fixed.

IXIASOFT Output Generator

  • [DEV-13286] The Output Generator now natively supports SVG and MathML images both as markup in a topic and as embedded images in a topic when using Apache FOP as the PDF processor. In previous releases the images were converted to PNG before being sent to FOP..
  • [DEV-13171] Some libraries were missing from the Output Generator conf/classpath.conf configuration file. This issue has been fixed. The numbering has changed in the main classpath.conf file, so customers who have added their own library should re-number them in their conf/client/classpath.conf configuration file.
  • [DEV-13153] Using the 6.1 Output Generator on a Content Store with SSL enabled, the wrapper.log file showed an “Unable to connect to Server” error. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-13119] The Output Generator packager failed when a map from a snapshot referenced a ditavalref containing keyref attributes. For example, <ditavalref format=”ditaval” keyref=”uma1564153361708″ processing-role=”resource-only”/>. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12937] The Output Generator did not delete files in the temp folder when debug mode was turned off.
  • [DEV-12917] The 6.1 Output Generator had a memory leak that sometimes prevented outputs from being returned to the client. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12881] Uncommenting the env.AHF_OPT property entry in the Output Generator outgen-init-client.xml, caused the property ${outgen.resources.dir.client} to fail to resolve in the build.properties file. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12481] Using the 6.1 Output Generator, any customizations using the XSLT Ant task showed a “Fatal error during transformation” error in the wrapper.log file. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12432] Using the 6.1 Output Generator, the Redline compare feature was not working and resulted in a “The system could not produce the requested output” error. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12428] Using the 6.1 Output Generator, the CCMS Web Collaborative Review did not display SVG files. This issue has been fixed.
  • [DEV-12391] Using the 6.1 Output Generator, users were unable to generate output. The wrapper.log showed a “taskdef class com.ixiasoft.outputgenerator.antTasks.images.ImageExportExtension cannot be found” error. This issue has been fixed.

IXIASOFT Scheduler

  • [DEV-12615] The Scheduler Daily Activity Report did not correctly display the title for topics authored in Japanese. This issue has been fixed.

TEXTML

  • [DEV-12882] In CCMS Web, when searching for multiple topics using the OR operator, not all topics were returned in the search when the search results were sorted by Relevance. This issue has been fixed.

Known Issues

IXIASOFT CCMS Web

  • [DEV-13673] Installing CCMS Web on a Linux system fails when it is installed in a folder different from the default and the service account is different from root. As a workaround, update the source/linux/TomcatInitTemplate file and change line 13 to:
    /sbin/runuser -l $username -c $pathToTomcat/bin/startup.sh
    You can then rerun the installer.
  • [DEV-6756] The IXIASOFT CCMS Web installation program does not support the following characters in the password as clear text: & ‘ “. These characters can be used if the password is encrypted.

IXIASOFT Output Generator

  • [DEV-13458] Customers that have set up the Output Generator to have additional libraries (jar files) for custom processing such as Fluid Topics, need to edit the numbering in the conf/client/classpath.conf configuration file to begin with either 200 or 300. For example, wrapper.java.classpath.200=../libs/fluidtopics/ftconnector.jar
