Rational Publishing Engine – A few updates…



It’s  been a while since my last post but here is a quick update on a few things that have been going on with RPE recently:


RPE has been released and it is a genuine fixpak, it only contains deltas so is a 97mb download

Highlights of RPE

  • Improved PDF output driver (there are a few issues with the new driver so the old one is also included by default)
  • New PDF driver can use Word templates for styles etc
  • Better support for Word templates for 2007/2010
  • Improved table handling/formatting for Word
  • Type casting for Rhapsody has been fixed

For more info see this post from the RPE Actual blog of Dragos Cojocari

Dr Einar Karlsen has released a series of articles on developerWorks on documenting compliance using RPE, well worth a read, you can find it here

I know there is something else that I was going to blog about but my brains have turned to mush!!
