Fellow XML developers,

it is my pleasure to announce the last scheduled beta release of XML Spy
3.0, 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:

	http://new.xmlspy.com

and 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.

Sincerely,

Alexander Falk
