I am pleased to announce Lantern 1.0 [1]. 
Lantern is an OpenSource software which allows users to load XML documents 
and then test XPath [2] expressions and functions.

The features of Lantern comply to the following:
 - to be a simple and lightweight software which does nothing but XPath testing;
 - to produce an immediate graphical result (selected nodes and context node are highlighted);
 - to be namespaces aware;
 - to allow the user to set a context node, thus to test expressions related to this node;
 - to embed a short documentation about XPath;
 - to allow the user to test XPath functions easily;
 - to display the XML document in the same format as it is stored in the file (ie: not as an ugly tree widget);
 - to be available as an open source, platform independent software.

Lantern addresses :
 - XPath and XSLT developers who would like to find the right XPath expression without 
   developing test cases,
 - trainers who wish to illustrate their course with a graphical tool.
