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).

Changes in 4.0.1:
  • Added settings pane, allows changing user settings, some of which take effect immediately (UseSyntaxHighlighting, Font, ForeColor).
  • Fixed an excpetion and a slight but annoying delay during startup, both related to automatic update checking.
  • Added XPath selection Up and Down buttons, providing the ability to select beyond the first XPath match. Enter key selects the first match, then repeated Enter key presses selects the next match. Added label next to buttons to show current location within results, like '1 of 50'.

Changes in 4.0.2:
  • Added an 'Open URL' button and File menu item, will download and open XML files from a user-specified URL. Added handling of certificate errors and basic HTTP authentication.
  • Added additional methods to XPathNavigatorTreeView to enable better integration into 3rd party applications.
