We are pleased to be able to announce the start of the beta testing phase
for the upcoming XML Spy 3.5 version and would like to invite you to
participate in this effort.

Version 3.5 Beta 1 is the first public beta release for our upcoming XML Spy
3.5 product and includes several new features. Specifically this beta
release contains:

    + a graphical schema design view for editing XML Schemas with
unprecedented ease-of-use
    + support for the latest XML Schema Candidate Recommendation released by
the W3C on 10/24/2000
    + the ability to automatically convert schemas from the April 7 working
draft to Oct 24 CR
    + the ability to access files from a URL (http: or ftp:) using a
user-name and password
    + the ability to save files directly to an FTP server
    + a new COM-based API for integrating XML Spy into custom solutions
(Visual Basic sample included)

This makes XML Spy 3.5 the first editor to support the XML Schema Candidate
Recommendation for both editing schema and instance documents.

We anticipate a huge interest in this beta version and are, therefore,
providing this download on a dedicated server hosted with a high-speed ISP.
Nevertheless, if you are still experiencing problems with downloading this
beta version, we have to ask you for a little patience. Please try again
after a few hours or at night-time, when there are not as many users
accessing the Internet.
