Troi Text Plug-in 2.0.1

According to a press release for this FileMaker Pro plug-in, version 2.0.1 (released today) includes a function that "can import information from XML data files and parse it into your FileMaker Pro database. It will allow you to get the specified node out of an XML formatted field. It will deal with nested nodes, returning all child nodes or just the child node you specify. You can also retrieve the attributes of nodes." (30 January 2001)

Built as an example of the combined utility of the XML Tools AppleScript Scripting Addition with FaceSpan 3.0 and offered for free as a sample application by Late Night Software, WatchNews reads XML news feeds from UserLand Software's Scripting News site and displays the data "in a dialog box where you can double-click on items to view them in your Web Browser." The download page also displays the AppleScript source code for WatchNews, and another page at Late Night Software's site offers other XML Tools usage examples. (both pages updated 16 January 2001)

Annual Call for Tips!

As XMacL marks its first anniversary of publication on a day of tempting Titanium Powerbook G4 news but no directly XML-related announcements from the MacWorld keynote, I'd like to encourage Macintosh users and developers to drop a line about Mac-friendly XML software or web resources that might be useful to XMacL's readers.
