Understanding & Implementing S1000D Issue 4.0 Now and in the Future
Pittsburgh, PA - March 23, 2010 --[ASDWire]-- Inmedius, Inc. announces the publication of, Understanding and Implementing S1000D Issue 4.0: Now and in the Future, a comprehensive White Paper designed to provide an overview of the changes and new features of the Specification's latest release, and how its implementation will impact current and future projects. The paper is based on the informative Inmedius Webinar, S1000D Issue 4.0: What It Means to You, presented several times last year by Sean Rushing, Inmedius Director of S1000D Products and Services.
The White Paper covers a bit of S1000D history prior to Issue 4.0, along with the change proposals and other drivers behind the most recent update to the Specification. Also discussed are the reasoning behind the alterations and additions incorporated into Issue 4.0. Various new concepts are outlined and explained, along with a quick review of other included changes. Implications for legacy and new projects are also discussed, along with a view of potential future developments to the Specification.
Inmedius also briefly addresses how the Issue 4.0 changes have impacted support tools, including its S1000D Publishing Suite(tm), the fully integrated, seven-module lifecycle software solution. The Suite's unique design and flexible data architecture allowed Inmedius to be the first to support Issue 1.7 through 4.0 of the Specification, delivering initial editing and management support for the schemas in April, 2009. Inmedius has continued to aggressively extend the number of document types supported by the Suite, and to address additional and more complex Issue 4.0 capabilities, like publishing.
