Read on to learn more or download your free version of HelpNDoc now.
Greatly enhanced HTML documentation generation
HelpNDoc can generate fully responsive HTML documentation web sites with advanced customization capabilities. This new version adds many new features and enhancements to the generated HTML files
Automatic XML sitemap generation
HelpNDoc 5.2 can now produce a valid XML sitemap of your HTML documentation, which includes a list of links to all available topics. This sitemap will be crawled by search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo... to better index the content of your HTML documentation web site: they will use that sitemap to better and quickly index all your documentation, instead of following links between your individual topics until all are indexed.
Other HTML enhancements
Enhanced build summary
HelpNDoc's build log includes extensive details on what happens behind the scene when a documentation is generated. This can lead to missed warnings and errors. The enhanced build summary now displays the number of warnings and errors for each build, thus making it easier and faster to troubleshoot potential documentation generation problems.
And many other additions and fixes
This new release also includes two new text transformation tools to easily change the text case and convert paragraph breaks to soft line breaks. The CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE keyboard shortcut can now be used to insert non-breaking spaces. The Qt help generation process has been enhanced as well as the internal web server... and much more as listed in the detailed change log bellow.
As always, HelpNDoc is completely free and fully functional for personal use and evaluation purposes. So download your copy today and enjoy documenting!
