IOF 2.4 - brand new version of offer sharing format
01 October 2012
Version 2.4 of IOF format has been published.
Modifications in comparison to 2.3 version:
dictionaries.xml file and all information on glossaries from full.xml file removed,
new parameters.xml file and information on parameters to full.xml file added,
culture-specific information added to preset.xml file.
When it comes to parameters in IOF, the change is not limited only to a file name change, but also:
parameters.xml file contains a list of all sections, parameters and values in sections, parameters, values tags - each element has its own ID.
full.xml file informs about what parameters product should have. Parameters are identified there with the same IDs as in parameters.xml file. IAI Downloader reads information about following parameter/section/value from parameters.xml file:
name in multiple languages,
description in multiple languages,
graphics on product card for multiple languages,
graphics on products list for multiple languages.
Notice: Current IAI Downloader version is not yet fitted to work with this format version. Soon a new version will be published with support for parameters.
