What’s New in 2013?

Javascript Documentation

Document! X now includes comprehensive support for documenting Javascript libraries, including regular javascript, jQuery plugins and jQuery UI Widget libraries. A unique design for the Document! X Javascript parsing engine gives accurate documentation even where complex Javascript inheritance techniques are used.

Full support for JSDoc and Xml comments is included. Comment sections can be placed inside function blocks or directly before the item being documented.

Automatically generated Usage sections and a Browser Compatibility section minimize the amount of effort necessary to create first class Javascript documentation.

You can find samples of the Javascript documentation output here:

Web Service Documentation

Document! X 2013.1 also introduces comprehensive support for documenting Web Services (SOAP and REST). A variety of Web Service Definition kinds are supported (WSDL, WADL, Swagger, WCF REST Help Pages). For Web Services that do not publish a supported definition, you can define the structure manually (Resource Groups, Resources, Operations, Requests and Responses) using context menu commands on the project explorer.

For SOAP Web Services that include embedded XSD Schemas, the XSD Schemas are automatically extracted and included in the project so you can take full advantage of the existing XSD Schema documentation support alongside your Web Service documentation.

You can find samples of the Web Service documentation output here:

User Interface Refresh

The entire User Interface has been refreshed, including crisp and clean icons and 2 new Themes – Metro Light and Metro White.
