What’s New in 2018.1

Editions and Versions

The new Editions and Versions functionality helps you to publish multiple variations of your Browser Help output and allows the end users of your Browser Help outputs to switch between the different Editions and/or Versions you have published.

Editions define the variants of Browser Help output that you generate using Build Profiles. (e.g. Standard, Professional and Enterprise Editions). Versions define the chronological published versions of your documentation (e.g. 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 versions). You can use just Editions, just Versions, or define them both if you would like your documentation users to switch between both Editions and Chronological Versions of your published Browser Help output.

All documentation that you publish with Editions and Versions functionality enabled will automatically show any Editions or Versions you publish in the future without having to republish the earlier documentation, minimizing the amount of effort in managing multiple documentation Editions and Versions and making it simple for users to find their way to the most relevant and up to date content.

Key Sequences Widget

A new Key Sequences Widget has been added to support the common documentation task of graphically illustrating a hotkey or other key sequence.

Documentation of Authenticated Web Services

Web services that use a definition URI protected by basic or NTLM authentication are now supported. New authentication properties are available on the Web Service properties dialog when adding or modifying a web service.

Customizable Configuration Location

The Configuration Data folder can now be customized to support OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox etc. integration. The folder in which Templates, Content Item Types and other application Configuration Data is stored can now be customized on the Paths page in the Options editor. This feature will allow Configuration Data to be stored in a folder that is synchronized with a cloud storage provider such as OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox etc. This functionality can be thereby leveraged to back up and synchronize your Configuration Data and also to keep your Configuration Data synchronized between multiple users working within a team environment.

Recent Items on Project Quick Start

A list of Recently accessed Project Items (e.g. Topics, Images, Stylesheets etc.) is now shown on the Project Quick Start page shown by default when you open a Project; providing a quick and easy way to pick up working with items from your last session.
