A new release of XSV, the Edinburgh/W3C Schema Validator [1] is now
available -- see [1] for download information and futher details.

Aside from bug fixes, there are two significant changes in this
release:

  1) XML 1.1 is supported, both for schema documents and for documents
     to be validated;
  2) Numeric exponents in content models are no longer implemented via
     a space-exponential 'unfolding' into a standard Finite State
     Automaton, but instead via direct mapping to a novel
     deterministic FSM with counters.

Also, the equivalent of the "-i" command line switch, which treats all
inputs as schema documents and checks the corresponding schema on the
assumption that it is meant to be complete, is now available when
using the web-form interface [2].
