This patch release addresses issues with scripting, indent-to-here characters, the format() function and CJK systems.

This minor release of Xdata fixes some long-standing data format issues.
This release simply adds compatibility for Adobe’s 7.5.1 update to InDesign CS5.5.
Quark has recently featured a couple of Xdata samples on their web site.
The first, at Directories and Yearbooks: Automate the Publishing of Directory-style Documents, has the caption John Catt Educational‘s 2011 publications were created using Em Software’s Xdata XTension for QuarkXPress in conjunction with databases created by consultant Roger Fuller. (John Catt Educational is UK-based, and Roger Fuller can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org; Roger is a long-term Em associate, and we can recommend him highly.)
The second, at Catalogs and Circulars: Limitless Design Flexibility, has the caption Mike Docker, Deputy Production Editor at Caterer & Hotelkeeper Magazine, said these guides involved a lot of coding at first but using Em Software’s Xdata XTension for QuarkXPress paid dividends for years afterwards.
(In both cases, you have to click on the embedded picture to see the samples.)
Mike Docker of Three Trick Pony (UK) is now showcasing InData/Xdata on his web site.
These are beautiful applications of our tools, and should give you a good idea about what you can accomplish with the same set of tools.
Mike is available for consulting, and can be contacted via email from the footer of his site.

The latest InDesign Secrets podcast—from David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepcion—talks at some length about both InCatalog and InData. (The lead-in to our products starts around 11:00, but the whole podcast is gold for data publishers.)
These podcasts are always great, but this one is particularly relevant to anyone interested in our products.
One nit, though: David talks about InCatalog being the big brother of InData, which isn’t quite true: it’s more like a brother who does something fairly distinct but complementary. (InData builds, InCatalog links, very roughly.)
This release adds unfettered anchored box sizing and includes a couple of minor fixes.
This release adds unfettered anchored box sizing, adds support for Arabic publishing, text anchors and hyperlinks, and includes a number of minor fixes.
