New version 2.8.2 available.

There is a new version 2.8.2 available to download

Small update:

  • The installer has been signed with a digital signature using SHA-1 instead of SHA-256. A Bug in Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter makes the files signed with SHA-256 (which is more secure than SHA-1) not recognized as safer but quite the opposite. Hopefully Microsoft fixes this problem with Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter.
  • We made a change in the input of numbers so that if you write 0.00 in the editor, in the XBRL report will be written the value 0.00 instead of the value 0. The reason for this change is that some taxonomies use "patterns" to validate numbers and require that the numbers have 2 decimals even when it comes to the same value.
  • In the API, you can now call DTSContainer.load(URI [ ]) more than once, formulas and resources are not compiled multiple times
  • We have added support for some features of the PER document (Proposed Recommendation Edition) XBRL variables that made some formula linkbases created for this version did not work out in the 2009 version.

Now it is more intuitive.
February 2012

Update to version 2.7.4.

New release available 2.7.4

New features:

  • The XBRL report generation based on templates has been empowered with the following features: Creation of report sections; a report section is a variable part of a report that exist on the template and may or may not exist on the instance depending on a value evaluated dynamically. This allows for the mapping of notes to financial reports in the IFRS taxonomy that may or may not exist in the source excel file and the generation of the instance document will or will not contain that section, including the section files in the DTS. Creation of duplicate concept mappings; now, the same concept, for the same context can be mapped to multiple cells and documented as a duplicate dynamic set. The duplicate dynamic set is evaluated at mapping time and only the non duplicate elements are converted into facts in the XBRL report. Mapping of context sections like the scheme and identifier is not possible.
  • New taxonomies added to the taxonomy catalog. The new versions of the most commonly used taxonomies has been added to the taxonomy catalog. The taxonomy catalog now allows for more metadata specified in the ZIP file such as the official starting URL of the taxonomy files that previously was indicated in the XML configuration file.
  • Translation of the tool dialogs to Spanish. Now English and Spanish languages are available. The language selection is automatic depending on the selection in the windows control panel.

General changes:
