XML Professional Publisher (XPP) 8.0 provides support for OpenType fonts, PDF and SVG graphics, and Unicode.

XyEnterprise, a leading developer of award-winning XML content management and multi-channel delivery solutions, announced today that Letterpart Ltd has successfully upgraded to XyEnterprise's XPP (XML Professional Publisher) Version 8.

Letterpart Ltd, based in Reigate, Surrey, provides typesetting services and 24/7 Web-based typesetting with over 200 data uploads per day. Because of this heavy volume, it was essential that any upgrade to their infrastructure be deployed seamlessly and function correctly from the word go.

As the employees of Letterpart arrived for work on Monday 26 February, they began working with the latest version of XyEnterprise's XML Professional Publisher. This signalled a significant achievement for the IT team at Letterpart. According to Chris Leggett, MD/Proprietor of Letterpart, "The upgrade from XPP Version 7 to Version 8 only took about 45 minutes; the preparation took more time!"

Letterpart depends upon XPP and XPP Web Services as their primary business tool, so it was critical that the upgrade go smoothly to ensure there was no disruption in service. Before installing XPP Version 8 in their production environment, Letterpart performed pre-upgrade testing on their development server, ensuring the new version would function as expected.

In addition to the XPP upgrade, Letterpart also upgraded all of their production and business systems' hardware, and commissioned an off-site disaster recovery facility. "Our new infrastructure gives us one of the best business continuity plans in our market," stated Leggett.

XPP Version 8 offers several major enhancements to support global publishing, including OpenType font support and Unicode compliance. With Unicode as the underlying system architecture, Version 8 opens up typesetting market opportunities in Asia and the Far East where Unicode fonts are essential. This new release of XPP also expands support for PDF and SVG - industry best practice for graphical formats.

In summing up Chris Leggett said "We were all very pleased at how well the upgrade went. XPP V8 works very well and adds significant value to the services we offer. Perhaps the best compliment I can give is that as far as my customers and staff are concerned, it's 'business as usual'. "
