New in version 7.0:

Document validation has been improved by adding continuous validation
support (validate as you type), error markers and overview ruler, multiple
external validation engines and support for CSS validation. Parsed schemas
are being cached to improve the validation speed.

XPath support benefits now of an XPath aware content assistant showing
functions and axes (all documented with sections from the W3C
specification), variables and parameters as well as name tests for elements
and attributes in context. For XPath 2.0 queries the XPath default
namespace can be configured/automatically detected and used when writing
XPath queries.

XSLT editing features now an XSLT input document view presenting the tree
structure of the XML document set for the current stylesheet in the
associated transformation scenario. You can create templates or other XSL
snippets by dragging the nodes from the tree into the stylesheet; the
generated XPath expressions are context aware. Refactory actions like
renaming XSL occurences, creating an XSL template from selection or
creating an XSL stylesheet from selection as well as search XSL
references/declarations or occurrences are available. You can also apply a
transformation scenario for multiple files in one action.

XQuery debugging perspective has been added. The debugging support is based
on Saxon XQuery processor from Saxonica and the layout and features
provided are similar with the ones available on the XSLT perspective
(including XQuery profiler).

The content completion support was improved to show the recent content
items, handle namespace prefixes, learn words and present #ID URI fragments
for anyURI attribute values and a better CSS content assistant is provided.

User interface improvements includes configurable GUI fonts, result views
allowing both table and tree layouts, folding support for JavaScript and
CSS and non-modal Find dialog. Now, not only the views can be moved around
the interface but also the editors can be arranged as you need inside the
editing area. Additionally, each editor can be split horizontally or
vertically. Splitting an editor allows you to copy or move text and markup
between two sections of the same document.

Other new features includes new views like information, properties or
images preview, different element colors depending on the XML prefix,
contextual spell-checking correction on a mis-spelled word, extract XML
Schema from a database structure and floating license support over Internet.
