I am glad to announce a new major release of <oXygen/>, version 6.0 
available from
The 6.0 <oXygen/> version completes the XML Schema support adding a 
visual XML Schema editor that presents the schema diagram and the schema 
source side by side. Some of the features of the new schema editor are:
* synchronized schema diagram with the source changes in real time (that 
is no background parsing)
* the diagram selection is updated to show the current source element
* selecting a node in the diagram selects the corresponding source content
* references can be expanded in place (for instance element references 
can be followed to the element declaration, base types can be followed 
to their definition, etc.)
* presents the list of schema components in a separate components view
* provides a logical model view that presents a diagram showing the 
elements of the parsed schema
* print diagram support
* save diagram as image

Another feature directly related with the XML Schema support is the 
improved content completion that shows possible values for xsi:type. It 
determines the type of an element and all the types that are derived 
from that and presents their qualified names resolved in the current 
context as possible values for the xsi:type attribute.

The new features of version 6.0 include:
* visual editor for Relax NG Schemas (similar with the one for W3C XML 
* a complete Diff and Merge solution featuring both directory and file 
comparison, 6 different file diff algorithms, multiple level diff 
support (go into change details), nice GUI presentation with 
synchronized scrolling and change guide lines, easy invocation of the 
diff action from project panel or from the editor contextual menu
* Import from Databases, text files and Excel sheets
* XML Digital Signature and XML Canonicalization support
and more.
For a detailed description of the new features please visit:

<oXygen/> is available on almost any platform both as a standalone 
application and as an Eclipse plugin. The Academic license costs $48 and 
the Professional license costs $148.

If you attend the XTech conference in Amsterdam next week please visit 
us there, we will be at booth 20.
