From: Boris Kolpackov <boris@codesynthesis.com>

I am pleased to announce the availability of CodeSynthesis XSD 3.1.0.

CodeSynthesis XSD is an open-source (GPL2 + proprietary license), cross-
platform W3C XML Schema to C++ data binding compiler. Provided with a
schema, it generates C++ classes that represent the given vocabulary as
well as parsing and serialization code. You can then access the data
stored in XML using types and functions that semantically correspond to
your application domain rather than dealing with elements, attributes,
and text in a direct representation of XML such as DOM or SAX.

CodeSynthesis XSD supports both in-memory and event-driven processing
models by implementing two C++ mappings: C++/Tree and C++/Parser. The
C++/Tree mapping represents the information stored in XML instance
documents as a tree-like, in-memory object model. The C++/Parser mapping
generates parser skeletons for data types defined in XML Schema. Using
these parser skeletons you can build your own in-memory representations
or perform immediate processing of XML documents.

Major new features in this release:


  * The file-per-type compilation mode in addition to file-per-schema.
  * Customizable identifier naming convention.
  * Non-copying modifier functions.
  * Additional binary serialization examples.


  * The file-per-type compilation mode in addition to file-per-schema.
  * Support for XML Schema polymorphism (xsi:type and substitution groups).

For a complete list of new features in this release see:


CodeSynthesis XSD is available on IBM AIX, GNU/Linux, HP-UX, Mac OS X,
Solaris, and Windows. Supported C++ compilers include: GNU g++, HP aCC,
IBM XL C++, Intel C++, Sun C++, and MS Visual C++.

More information, documentation, source code, and precompiled binaries
for all supported platforms are available from
