[xep-support] Requests for version 4.17

(Starting a new thread with appropriate title)

I have two requests:

1. An installer that is quick and easy to use.  Currently, one needs someone who is computer-savvy in order to install XEP.  It really bothers me that when I want to tell someone about the abilities of XEP I always have to provide a caveat that it is really hard to install (something like 22 steps on a Windows system).

2. Related to this would be an ability to easily add fonts to XEP's configuration file (just navigate to where the font files are located, say, and select the ones you want).  Now one has to write XML or figure out how to use the Fonts section of the Edit Options in XEP Assistant (something I have yet to succeed in doing).

Yes we have had a few requests for two-up continuous. It is on our product marketing requirements list for a future release. XEP 4.16 will be released shortly and after that we will begin the process of deciding which functionality makes it into 4.17.

I would welcome an open discussion on this forum if you like ... kind of a virtual product management meeting. We weigh the time to develop along with the demand and marketplace

Other items that have been offered in no particular order include:

PDF Annotations
Extended "graphic" support in PDF to include multimedia types (of course only valid for PDF Formats):
                Other video
SVG enhancements
Table markers
XPS Output
XPS Input as a image (actually this is already done at customers as they do XPS->XEPOUT and that is supported as an image)
PPML Output
XForms Output
Native support for charts or incorporation of a Chart Server component
Support for Indic languages

Of course, this is not a list of all things in 4.17, this is a list of candidate functionality. Certainly major features like table markers or a new backend one would find one, maybe two in a release that takes place every 4 to 5 months.

The disscussion is open to all. Please chime in with your own desired features, All these requirements are managed on an internal Wiki and I am the gatekeeper.
