XML Professional Publisher Version 7.2

XyEnterprise Announces Release of XML Professional Publisher 7.2

Reading, MA, USA. April 9, 2003.

XyEnterprise, the leading developer of XML content management and enterprise publishing software, announced today that it has released XML Professional Publisher Version 7.2.

This latest release of XyEnterprise's powerful publishing software contains new features designed to enhance the creation, deployment, and support of XML publishing environments. Customers as diverse as R.R. Bowker, Motor Information Group, Letterpart Ltd (U.K.), Portalyx (Netherlands), Grafikon (Belgium), Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. (RTIS), a subsidiary of Reed Elsevier Group plc, the Boeing Company, and i2 Technologies, Inc. have already implemented this new release and are utilizing its enhanced feature set.

XML Professional Publisher (XPP) is the proven standards-based composition, transformation and rendering software for complex and automated publishing in the technical documentation, commercial, legal, journal, and financial publishing markets. Leading corporations use XPP to process and transform XML and other structured content into high-quality PDF and print output.

This latest release extends programmatic access to XPP's publishing functions by integrating an adapter for the Perl programming language. This access enables customers to use industry standard Perl scripts and programs to reduce the cost of systems deployment and enhance the integration of the XPP publishing engine with content management systems, databases, and other sources of enterprise content.

XPP 7.2 also includes a new MathML module for the import, use, and publishing of MathML structure and content, further enhancing XPP's capabilities to add value to XML standards-based publishing workflows. This functionality is particularly important for XPP's wide variety of users in the STM (Scientific, Technical, and Medical) Journals market, the textbook publishing market, and e-Leaning and testing organizations.

Portalyx, a Netherlands-based reseller and integrator of XML Professional Publisher, uses XPP 7.2 to support a wide range of publishing environments. Recently, Portalyx employed XPP 7.2 to migrate a major customer to a MathML environment and simplify text processing through the new Perl program access. Ellyn Larson, CEO of Portalyx, said: "XPP 7.2 builds on the core strengths of XPP's high speed composition engine, extending its XML support and integration flexibility. We find it a powerful and agile platform for producing high-quality PDF output fast and reliably, meeting the toughest formatting challenges for our broad range of international customers."

Jon Parsons, director of Product Marketing, XyEnterprise, commented: "XPP 7.2 shows our continued commitment to standards-based publishing, business-driven product features, support of a wide spectrum of different solution environments, especially the enterprise application of XML for content management, formatting, and transformation."

XPP 7.2 is available now and complements the recently announced Web Services Development Kit for XPP. Learn more about XPP 7.2, automated XML publishing, and the new Web Services interface at XyEnterprise's ongoing Webinar series at
