    * Unordered Differencing: An Unordered XML
    Differencing and Merge Tool has been added.
    Unordered Differencing is particularly useful
    for comparing versions of documents such
    as XML Schemas and XSLT Stylesheets where
    normal differencing can result in excessive
    spurious changes being reported if the
    position of elements such as XSL Templates
    or global XSD Complex Types have changed.

    * Folding: Content Folding has been added,
    whereby individual element content can be
    collapsed and expanded using the Content
    Folding Margin in the Editor window, giving
    an improved editing experience for large

    * Splitting: Windows can be split vertically
    (or horizontally) to view and edit different
    documents side by side. A particularly useful
    feature is the ability to synchronise scrolling of
    two or more documents based on XPath - this
    is very convenient when comparing different
    language translations of the same document.
    Multiple windows can be opened on a single file
    so that you can edit different parts of the
    document at the same time. For example, the
    markup for an XHTML form can be edited in one
    window while the corresponding Javascipt code
    associated with the form is edited in another.

    * Refactoring: A number of common XML
    Refactoring scenarios are directly
    supported, including renaming
    namespace prefixes, stripping text
    content, renaming elements/attributes,
    converting attributes to elements and
    changing elements to attributes.

    * Import: It is now possible to import
    structured text files, Excel spreadsheets
    and Database tables into the editor as
    XML content. In addition, the SQL/XML
    standard as supported by IBM DB2 and
    Oracle can now be used as a means of
    extracting data from multiple database
    tables into an XML format for subsequent
    editing or transformation.

    * Keyboard Shortcuts: Significant new
    functionality has been added to support
    rapid data entry via the keyboard. Every
    one of over 200 functions in Exchanger XML
    is now accessible through a configurable
    shortcut while Emacs key mappings have
    also been implemented for basic editing
    functionality. The Macintosh version now
    supports the use of the Command key for

    * Fragments: To further improve productivity,
    shortcuts can be created for common tag
    combinations, for example, when editing an
    XSLT file Alt+Shift+C will generate the
    typical <xsl:choose> <xsl:when>
    <xsl:eek:therwise> tag combination. For
    convenience, these shortcuts are also
    available on a popup menu or as buttons on
    a toolbar. Exchanger XML Editor V3.0 comes
    with a number of mappings already installed
    while further mappings will be available for
    download for vertical standards such as
    Docbook, TEI, XBRL, UBL, etc. from
    www.exchangerxml.com .

    * Bookmarks: Navigation within the Editor has
    also been enhanced via the use of
    Bookmarks that can be easily created and
    removed, and accessed via a pop-up list or
    an Overview Margin on the right-hand side.

    * Multiple Tag-Completion Schemas: Mix and
    match any number of schemas to perform

    * Attribute Value Completion: Prompt for
    attribute values based on the associated
    schema and the values found in the
    document. Also special attribute value
    completion is available for XML-Schema,
    RelaxNG and XSLT documents.

    * Error Highlighting: The Overview Margin
    also allows rapid access to syntax errors,
    which are now highlighted as you type
    using a red squiggle under the offending

    * Navigator: Customized Views can be
    specified in the Navigator, facilitating easier
    navigation through the use of an XPath-based
    "table of contents" style tree.

    * Improved Find/Replace functionality now
    allows use of XPath-based filters for
    narrowing the search area and Regular
    Expression parameters in replace.

    * Drag n' Drop support has been added to
    the editor.
