XML Spy 3.0 Beta 3 - With Support for the April 7 XML Schema Draft
Date: Tue, 2 May 2000 13:50:09 +0200 From: "Falk, Alexander" <email@example.com> Subject: ANNOUNCE: XML Spy 3.0 Beta 3 first editor with support for new April 7 XML Schema draft
Dear XML news providers,
It is my pleasure to announce the last scheduled beta release of XML Spy 3.0 for Windows, which is no longer only an XML editor, but has matured into a true Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for XML that includes:
- XML editing & validation
- Schema/DTD editing & validation
- XSL editing & transformation
XML Spy 3.0b3 contains our new incremental validating parser which fully supports Document Type Definitions (DTD), Document Content Description (DCD), XML-Data Reduced (XDR), BizTalk, and already contains support for most of the new April 7 W3C XML Schemas, which makes XML Spy the first editor that supports the new XML Schema draft from editing through schema validation to intelligent editing of XML instance documents based on the schema!
Please visit the new XML Spy 3.0 preview web-server at:
Feel free to download the beta version, which is now being made available for public testing. Other than minor bug-fixes, the only thing missing before the final release is the new online-help system as well as the new printable manual, which means that we expect to go FINAL very soon. If you'd like to know more about the new version, you'll find that our new web-server contains a detailed description of all the new features at http://new.xmlspy.com/features_intro.html so that should help to get you started quickly.
Thank you for your interest in our product and for participating in the beta test program. We will be giving away 10 free 3.0 premium single-user licenses for the 10 most complete, detailed or useful bug reports that we receive during the beta program. We will be announcing the winners on the very day when XML Spy 3.0 starts shipping and we might even throw in the occasional XML Spy Polo-Shirt for exceptionally useful bug reports.
