Release Notes

Changes in 4.0:
  • This release is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.
  • Changed XSD validation to use the schema specified by the XML documents.
  • Added a VS style Error List, double-clicking an error takes you to the offending node.
    • XPathNavigator schema validation finally gives SourceObject (was fixed in .NET 4).
  • Added Namespaces window and better support for XPath expressions in documents with a default namespace.
  • Added ExpandAll and CollapseAll toolbar buttons (in addition to the already present main menu and context menu items).
  • Added a prompt on first run (per user) to choose default file types (Vista, Win7 and newer).
  • Setup now registers XML Explorer with Windows as a recommended program for opening .xml, .xsd, .config, .xsl files (Open With).
  • Refactored the XPathNavigatorTreeView and its dependencies to a separate project. Should be easier and lighter to use from other projects now (no dependency on docking library).

Oh no - not again a "ClickOnce" Installer! Please continue to provide a "normal" setup and a ZIPped version!

This is an amazing tool. I work in an environment which has a high degree of integration between heterogenous systems so we rely heavily upon XML. This tool makes it a snap to view and query the myraid of XML documents and fragments we generate. For furture releases it would be nice to have an option for schema validation and wrapping on long inner text values.
