Leximation and Silicon Publishing have announced the release of DITA-FMx, a new plugin for Adobe FrameMaker that provides extended DITA support and corrects a number of bugs in the Application Pack for DITA.

DITA-FMx is a plugin and set of structure applications that let you create and edit DITA XML files in FrameMaker. The version currently available supports DITA 1.0 and is only available for FrameMaker 7.2. A version that supports DITA 1.1 for FrameMaker 7.2 and 8.0 is under development.

If you’re already using FrameMaker 7.2 with the Application Pack for DITA, this new plugin will not provide new functionality, but does fix/update a number of features available in Beta 2 of the app pack.
