Amaya is a Web editor, i.e. a tool used to create and update documents directly on the Web. Browsing features are seamlessly integrated with the editing and remote access features in a uniform environment. This follows the original vision of the Web as a space for collaboration and not just a one-way publishing medium.
Work on Amaya started at W3C in 1996 to showcase Web technologies in a fully-featured Web client. The main motivation for developing Amaya was to provide a framework that can integrate as many W3C technologies as possible. It is used to demonstrate these technologies in action while taking advantage of their combination in a single, consistent environment.
Amaya started as an HTML + CSS style sheets editor. Since that time it was extended to support XML and an increasing number of XML applications such as the XHTML family, MathML, and SVG. It allows all those vocabularies to be edited simultaneously in compound documents.
Amaya is a tool that allows you browse webpages.
What's New in This Release:
· It was possible to copy/paste an image, but not to copy/paste a paragraph or a division including an image
· Now, if nothing is selected Copy doesn't change the copy buffer
· Generate a pop up message instead of a message in the status bar when the document cannot be saved
· Amaya accepts both Esc and F2 to select the parent element
· Use the same browse button in Open, New, Image, Object, and Save As dialogs
· When an object is created, Amaya (WX) now proposes a larger set of MIME types and request an alternate contents
· Sometimes the list of available classes in the Apply class tool was not correctly updated
· In GTK versions Amaya used pixel font sizes instead of point font sizes
