Morphon XML Editor 1.1

A new version of this Java-based, validating XML editor has been released. Two downloadable installers for Macintosh are available for free 30-day trial use. One is for Macs which have a Java runtime environment installed, and the other includes such an environment.

The online manual lists new features in version 1.1 as including "CSS Support for Attr() content"; "Improved performance for document loading and faster editing"; "Some xml properties [such as whitespace policy settings] are stored per document"; "The Enter and Backspace keys have some intelligent behaviour"; "Fixes problems with loading and registering plugins"; and "The process of loading and creation of a document can be canceled." Morphon's change log has a complete list. (6 March 2001)
