I'm glad to let you know that a new version of Oxygen XML Editor is
available. I will describe briefly below the XML Schema support and a few
interesting features added in the new version. For a complete list of
features added by version 5 please visit our website

Oxygen XML Editor provides XML Schema support that includes:
* XML Schema editor
  - edit XML Schemas guided by a powerful content completion
  - validate XML Schemas (checking UPA and type derivations)
  - error reporting pointing to document location and to the XML Schema
* XML Schema Model View
  - present the XML Schema information for the current element
  - present the annotation documentation for XML Schema elements and
* XML Editor
  - edit XML documents guided by XML Schemas
  - validate XML documents against XML Schemas
  - automatic generation of document content based on XML Schemas
  - associate an XML Schema with the XML instance
* Tools
  - generate documentation for XML Schemas
  - convert from XML documents, DTD, Relax NG schema to XML Schema
* Project
  - batch validation with an external XML Schema
* Wizards
  - create new XML documents based on an XML Schema file

Oxygen has a unique feature that allows the XML Schema author to communicate
with the user that creates XML documents based on that schema using the
annotation documentation. Oxygen extracts the annotation for elements,
attributes and with version 5 also for enumerations and presents it as the
user selects an option in the content completion popup. Thus the user gets
instant help for his current editing task.

One of the interesting additions of Oxygen 5 with respect to XML Schema
editing is the dynamic content completion that presents the components
defined in the current schema file where appropriate. For instance all the
global elements defined in the current schema file will be presented  as
possible values for element/@ref.

Another improvment is related with content completion for attibute values.
Now both list types and union types are supported.

Best Regards,
