Syncro Soft Announces New Release of XML Editor

Sep 23, 2005


Syncro Soft Ltd, the producer of XML Editor, has announced the immediate availability of version 6.2 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor, and XSLT Debugger. Version 6.2 of the XML Editor introduces a dockable framework that allows free configuration of the editor layout.

New features in version 6.2 include: views inside the window are dockable, floating, and hideable, which allows them to be dragged and docked to the margin of any other view or the margin of the main window so that they form any desired layout; Relax NG content completion was improved, which allows element values specified in the Relax NG schema to be presented as content completion proposals in documents based on that schema. Also the pattern names defined in the Relax NG schema are presented as possible values for pattern references; when configuring parameters for an XSLT transformation will present automatically the available stylesheet parameters together with information about them extracted from the stylesheet. The TEI and DocBook stylesheets contain such documentation; improvements are made on XSLT debugger part including the possibility to specify conditional breakpoints, presenting the node-sets and tree fragments into tree views (useful especially in debugging stylesheets that keep intermediary results in variables like DocBook for instance) and capture multiple outputs for XSLT 2.0; and the results of different XPath queries performed on the same document are now presented in different views for accessing and comparing them.

The Xerces XML parser (2.7.1) from the Apache Foundation and the new Saxon 8.5.1 XQuery and XSLT Processor from Saxonica Limited for XSLT 2.0 were integrated into . XML Editor and XSLT Debugger is available immediately in two editions: Multi-platform Academic/Non-profit license costs USD 48.00 and Multi-platform Professional license costs USD 180.00 (20% off from the list price) if you buy before October 1, 2005. XML Editor and XSLT Debugger can be run as a standalone application on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and as an Eclipse plugin. Version 6.2 is available for free trial download from the Web site.
