We are pleased to announce the release of a new implementation of EXI.  The
new implementation is available in two versions:

- OSS EXI Tools for C/C++
- OSS EXI Tools for .NET

(see http://www.oss.com/xml/products/xml-products.html)

The current releases of these tools are prototype releases and are being
offered only for evaluation purposes.

We have also developed a test driver for testing the OSS EXI Tools for C/C++
within the W3C EXI Interoperability Test Framework.  The test driver is
available as part of the evaluation package for the OSS EXI Tools for C/C++.
The OSS EXI Tools for C/C++ successfully run all the test cases in the
Interoperability Test Framework except those few that contain an
exceptionally large integer or decimal value, which we don't support.

The OSS EXI Tools for C/C++ consist of a schema preprocessor utility and a
runtime library (EXI/C). The schema preprocessor requires Windows and the
..NET framework, whereas the EXI/C runtime library is a native Windows DLL
with a C-style API and can be used both by C applications and by C++
applications. The OSS EXI Tools for .NET require Windows and the .NET
framework. The EXI/.NET runtime library can be used by applications written
in C# or any other .NET language.
  
The OSS EXI Tools are a complete implementation of the EXI Recommendation. A
user of the EXI/C or EXI/.NET runtime library can either convert a whole XML
document from/to EXI or read/write an EXI stream one node at a time. The
EXI/.NET runtime library supports the System.Xml.XmlReader / XmlWriter
interfaces.
