I would like to announce the release of X-Smiles, an Open Source Java-based
XML Browser. Version 0.31 is now available for downloading at
http://www.x-smiles.org/ . I think this should intrest the members of this
mailing list.

X-Smiles is a pure Java XML browser. It is intended for both desktop use and
embedded network devices and to support multimedia services.It is capable of
displaying documents written in various XML languages. Currently supported
languages are:

* Extended Markup Language (XML)
* XSL Transformations (XSLT)
* XSL Formatting Objects (XSL FO)
* Synchronised Multimedia Integration Language 1.0 (SMIL)
* XML Forms (XForms)
* Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

Some of these XML standards are supported by integrated free third party
libraries (e.g. XSL FO) while others are delivered in the X-Smiles project
(e.g. SMIL/XForms).

Other supported features:

* ECMAScript
* Multimedia content in SMIL through Java Media Framework (JMF).
* Various GUIs

The main advantage of the X-Smiles browser is that it supports several XML
related specifications and is still suitable for embedded devices supporting
the Java environment.
