The latest version of Fujitsu's "HyBrick" browser, V0.82, with expanded support for XLink/XPointer, is now available from Fujitsu Software Corporation's Web site at:
New XLink/XPointer related features include:
XLink/XPointer error/warning info is shown in the error list dialog.
Note: The HyBrick V0.8 XPointer interpreter permits whitespace to be included in an XPointer string - illegal, according to the XPointer WD. The XPointer interpreter has been fixed accordingly and XPointers containing whitespace will now generate error messages.
A "Document Group" sub-menu has been added in the "XLink/XPointer" menu. Users can now navigate between inter-linked documents by using Document Groups as well as through individual links. (Right mouse-button click on links to see this menu.)
In the "select link" dialog, link element "role" values are displayed instead of GIs. This feature, as well as the "Document Group" display feature, are particularly useful for creating and navigating "Topic Maps."
The mouse cursor now changes its shape over links.
Other new features:
If multiple stylesheet PIs are present, users are presented with a dialog box to select the stylesheet they want to use. This feature, which was demonstrated in the first version of HyBrick, has been re-enabled in this one.
"Reload hubdocument" and "Close window" functions have been added.
Installing and Using HyBrick:
HyBrick is supplied as a self-extracting file for Windows 95 and Windows NT.
Once the files are installed, start HyBrick from the bin directory.
Use the "Browse" button to locate the file Samples\XLink-sample\readme.xml or Samples\XLink-sample\leeme.xml (Spanish).
Note: Our thanks to Sr. Diego Antona Archilla, UNAM, for providing Spanish-language translations of the HyBrick sample files.
