PITTSBURGH, PA – January 15, 2013 – Doc-To-Help, a trusted name and award-winning product in the content publishing tool market, has announced the release of Doc-To-Help 2012 v3. This release is part of a yearly subscription service and adds support for newly available technologies, including Microsoft Windows 8 and Word 2013, providing users the ability to upgrade their environments without trouble or concern.
“The v3 release of Doc-To-Help 2012 focuses on supporting the latest technology available, including support for Windows 8, Word 2013, Internet Explorer 10, and Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2012,” said Dan Beall, product manager of Doc-To-Help. “This update is dedicated to making sure Doc-To-Help is compatible with upgrades that users may be making to their own environment,” said Beall.
Doc-To-Help 2012 features a Help output called NetHelp 2.0, which is a jQuery-based, cross-platform output that is displayed in the user’s default browser. It is architected to easily embed a single topic, or an entire Help system, into a web page. This allows users to stream updated content to their website efficiently.
Doc-To-Help first supported EPUB 2.0 in August of 2012, which ensured that Doc-To-Help users can deliver content where their customers need it. This latest release adds support for EPUB 3.0. “It means users can rest assure that Doc-To-Help’s EPUB output will work on as many devices as possible,” said Beall.
For companies and users who would like to gather user feedback for their Help system (such as commenting and ratings) and build a user community, it is possible to do so with Doc-To-Help. Beall also shared how users can use Doc-To-Help’s integration with DISQUS’s latest version to have a conversation with their readers. Plus, Beall revealed DISQUS’s notable features include: user voting, SEO optimization, and a personalized “My DISQUS” site.
