[xml-dev] FYI: ebXML BPWS - PDF generation from XML for all BPWS Formsincluding additional SWOT

Today the Open ebXML project have released version 0.40 of the open
source XSLT Tools. This version adds full support of all Worksheets

Guidelines v 1.0.

The BPWS are aimed at non-technical users and modelers working in
earlier stages of modeling business processes and collaborations using
UMM and/or ebXML. The BPWS may also serve a checklist for standardized
models when a previously specified business process is contributed to
UN/CEFACT for inclusion and incorporation as a standard business process

* This release of XSLT Tools for BPWS is the last Proof of Concept
release. The ongoing work is now focused on creating an alpha release
(approx. Q4) with a stable XML Schema.

* Synchronization of XML Schema with UMM and BPSS Models
* Cleanup of XML Schema and addition of missing elements/attributes
* Improve graphical design.
* Add BPSS generation from BPWS document.
