People on this list may be interested that we are supporting RELAX NG in our editor. I think this may be the first end-user product to do so!
People who are interested in it, please feel free to register for our beta program, at http://www.topologi.com/. The next beta should be out very early next week.
The editor also supports XML DTDs, XML Schemas, Schematron (including phases), and our inhouse NII (NamedInformationItem) schema formats. All these schemas can be put in an XAR file (a ZIP format for distributing document types and application code), and the editor will upload them over a network or between peers, so deploying schemas to systems should be pretty easy.
The editor will be shipping with RELAX NG as one of the supplied applications, however it is not an IDE but targeted at data capture for the same kinds of publishing uses that SGML has succeeded in.
We used Jing, which seems good quality. We had difficulties with the JARV API implementation and IBM's VisualAge for Java, so we used Jing's native interface instead. It was almost trivial to add, actually: less than a day's work by a programmer who did not know RELAX NG.
What is the best list for developers to talk about implementation issues?
