Syncro Soft Announces New Release of (oXygen/) XML Editor, Schema Editor
and XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

Release date: March the 2nd, 2006

Syncro Soft Ltd, the producer of (oXygen/) XML Editor, has announced the
immediate availability of version 7.1 of its XML Editor, Schema Editor and
XSLT/XQuery Debugger.

Version 7.1 of the (oXygen/) XML Editor adds support for Berkeley and eXist
XML Databases, an XSL templates view for easy navigation through the edited
XSL stylesheet and an XPath builder view for editing complex XPath
expressions. Effort has been made to improve the loading time and to reduce
the memory usage especially for large documents. Multiple modifications
were made to improve the general usability of the editor.

New in version 7.1:

You can run XQuery transformation scenarios against the eXist or the
Berkeley DB XML Databases content. You can benefit of XQuery content
validation (on request or continuous) using the eXist or the Berkeley DB

The document loading time was optimized so that large documents are loaded
now up to four times faster. The spell checking works faster for long
documents and for documents that have very long lines (thousands of

Annotation tooltips for the XML attributes has been added. If you place the
cursor over an attribute, the application will display a tooltip containing
the annotation defined for that attribute in the associated document schema.

You can define colors for the tags starting with a certain prefix. More
than that, you can choose only the prefix to be colored differently, the
name of the element being colored with the default element color.

The list of templates defined in the edited XSL stylesheet is sorted and
presented in the Templates View. The sorting can be done either by name or
by match. The named templates are rendered with a different icon for easy
spotting. The view represents an easy way of navigating through large XSL
stylesheets. It accepts key input and searches the template having the
match/name starting with the typed letters.

Editing complex XPath expressions in the XPath toolbar can be sometimes
difficult due to the size limitation. The XPath view allows editing of
multi-line expressions. The executed expressions are stored in a history
list and they can be reused as necessary.

Along with the bundled XSLT processors, it is possible to configure other
XSLT processors, like Sablotron, Transformix, XT, Oracle XSLT.

Several components were updated: Xerces parser to latest 2.8.0, XMLSec for
XML signatures to 1.3 and Saxon 8B XSLT processor from Saxonica to the
latest 8.7 version. (oXygen/) supports also the Saxon8SA 8.7 (that requires
a separate license from Saxonica).
