Ottawa, Canada. Dec 2, 2002.
Corel Corporation today announced its plans for the XML Conference and Exposition 2002 in Baltimore, MD. Corel will preview two new technologies designed to power and simplify the creation of XML and SVG applications.
"XML 2002 is an extremely important event for Corel. We are pleased to be unveiling the evolution of Corel's XML solution set to this growing community," said Derek Burney, president and CEO of Corel Corporation. "Corel is on the cutting edge in delivering the essential tools that will drive the adoption of open standards for both text and graphical content."
Corel will offer technology previews of its upcoming SVG-based smart graphics studio and the soon-to-be-released upgrade to its award-winning XML editor, Corel XMetaL .
Smart Graphics. Building on the strength of SVG, this new studio will enable enterprise customers to create dynamic, data-driven graphical applications. SVG-based smart graphics are the ideal solution for building powerful, enterprise-class visual interfaces for delivering the data and content generated by XML Web services. Conference attendees are invited to attend Corel's smart graphics technology preview session on Wednesday, December 11 at 2:45 p.m. in room 310 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Corel XMetaL 4. Corel will preview Corel XMetaL 4, the evolution of XML content creation. Corel XMetaL 4 is a platform designed to simplify the implementation of customized XML applications and features tight integration with content management systems. This new platform continues to build upon the strengths of Corel XMetaL 3, enabling anyone to create valid XML content and streamlining the process of distributing information to the Web, print and other media. Preview demonstrations of Corel XMetaL 4 will be available throughout the show at the Corel booth (#431).
"Corel is continuing the tradition of launching important technology at this conference. XMetaL 1 was launched here in 1998, and I'm sure many people will be excited to see the new features added to XMetaL 4. Conference attendees will be equally interested in Corel's smart graphics technologies that enable the creation of SVG-based data driven graphics," said Lauren Wood, Conference Chair, XML 2002. "Together, these products show how far XML has come as an enabling technology in supporting enterprise-wide solutions to address business needs."
More details regarding Corel's smart graphics solutions and Corel XMetaL 4 will be announced at the event.
