The HCRC Language Technology Group are pleased to announce the
availability of v1.0 of LT XML.  This release contains significant
improvements in conformance, performance and functionality compared to
the previous (0.9.5) version.

LT XML is both a set of command-line/console XML applications and a C
language library supporting a powerful API for new application
development.  It is available free for evaluation and non-commercial
use.  For an overview and information about licences, including
licences for commercial use, see


The v1.0 release comes in two versions:

 * A source version for UN*X platforms, with straight-forward
   compilation and installation procedures;

 * A source plus DLLs and executables version for WIN32 platforms.

Both versions include extensive documentation of the tools and the
API, together with detailed examples of how to build your own
application using the API.

The functionality of the tools in this release includes:

 * Text extraction
 * Powerful markup-aware 'grep' (search)
 * Down-translation
 * Tokenisation
 * Sorting
 * Transclusion using a subset of XML-link

The API allows applications to choose, or even switch, between an
event-oriented and a tree-oriented view of XML documents.

Significant features of this release compared to previous releases:

 * A conforming XML processor per the W3C XML 1.0 recommendation of

 * Support for a wide range of encodings, including UTF-8, ISO-646,
   ISO-8859-n, UTF-16 and UCS-2

 * 50% faster

 * Expanded documentation in both HTML and MS Word formats
