We are pleased to be able to announce the next step 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 2 is the second public beta release for our upcoming XML
Spy 3.5 product and includes several new features. Specifically this beta
release contains:

    + generation of complete XML Schema documentation in HTML and Microsoft
Word format
    + printing from the XML Schema design view
    + lots of bug-fixes in the XML Schema design view and the XML Schema
aware validator

In addition, the following features, that have already been introduced in
the Beta 1 release of XML Spy 3.5, have been improved:

    + 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)

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.
