Announcement: New release of XML Validator and Canonical XML Processor

Elcel Technology is pleased to announce release 0.11 of their XML
command-line tools: the XML Validator and Canonical XML Processor.

ElCel Technology continues to develop these popular utilities that are built
on top of their C++ XML Toolkit, which is due for launch this autumn.  The
utilities are provided free of charge and run on Windows and Linux
platforms.  They can be obtained from the ElCel Technology web site:

The main feature new to release 0.11 is support for Entity Resolution using
XML catalogs.  As most of you already know, an OASIS Technical Committee [1]
is currently writing a specification detailing a standard format for XML
catalogs.  The ElCel Technology implementation is based on a recent draft
[2], and will continue to be updated until the specification becomes an
OASIS Standard.  This feature has been requested many times from our users
and we are very pleased to be able to offer a non-proprietary solution that
will eventually become a standard.

Other enhancements to the XML Validator include the ability to override the
DTD, performance improvements for large DTDs and improved support for Linux
platforms.  Manual pages detailing the available features are available
online from the relevant product pages.

Please feel free to use these tools in your projects.
