* Unordered Differencing: An Unordered XML
  Differencing and Merge Tool has been added.
  Unordered Differencing is particularly useful
  for comparing versions of documents such
  as XML Schemas and XSLT Stylesheets where
  normal differencing can result in excessive
  spurious changes being reported if the
  position of elements such as XSL Templates
  or global XSD Complex Types have changed.

* Folding: Content Folding has been added,
  whereby individual element content can be
  collapsed and expanded using the Content
  Folding Margin in the Editor window, giving
  an improved editing experience for large

* Splitting: Windows can be split vertically
  (or horizontally) to view and edit different
  documents side by side. A particularly useful
  feature is the ability to synchronise scrolling of
  two or more documents based on XPath - this
  is very convenient when comparing different
  language translations of the same document.
  Multiple windows can be opened on a single file
  so that you can edit different parts of the
  document at the same time. For example, the
  markup for an XHTML form can be edited in one
  window while the corresponding Javascipt code
  associated with the form is edited in another.

* Refactoring: A number of common XML
  Refactoring scenarios are directly
  supported, including renaming
  namespace prefixes, stripping text
  content, renaming elements/attributes,
  converting attributes to elements and
  changing elements to attributes.

* Import: It is now possible to import
  structured text files, Excel spreadsheets
  and Database tables into the editor as
  XML content. In addition, the SQL/XML
  standard as supported by IBM DB2 and
  Oracle can now be used as a means of
  extracting data from multiple database
  tables into an XML format for subsequent
  editing or transformation.

* Keyboard Shortcuts: Significant new
  functionality has been added to support
  rapid data entry via the keyboard. Every
  one of over 200 functions in Exchanger XML
  is now accessible through a configurable
  shortcut while Emacs key mappings have
  also been implemented for basic editing
  functionality. The Macintosh version now
  supports the use of the Command key for

* Fragments: To further improve productivity,
  shortcuts can be created for common tag
  combinations, for example, when editing an
  XSLT file Alt+Shift+C will generate the
  typical <xsl:choose> <xsl:when>
  <xsl:otherwise> tag combination. For
  convenience, these shortcuts are also
  available on a popup menu or as buttons on
  a toolbar. Exchanger XML Editor V3.0 comes
  with a number of mappings already installed
  while further mappings will be available for
  download for vertical standards such as
  Docbook, TEI, XBRL, UBL, etc. from
  www.exchangerxml.com .

* Bookmarks: Navigation within the Editor has
  also been enhanced via the use of
  Bookmarks that can be easily created and
  removed, and accessed via a pop-up list or
  an Overview Margin on the right-hand side.

* Multiple Tag-Completion Schemas: Mix and
  match any number of schemas to perform

* Attribute Value Completion: Prompt for
  attribute values based on the associated
  schema and the values found in the
  document. Also special attribute value
  completion is available for XML-Schema,
  RelaxNG and XSLT documents.

* Error Highlighting: The Overview Margin
  also allows rapid access to syntax errors,
  which are now highlighted as you type
  using a red squiggle under the offending

* Navigator: Customized Views can be
   specified in the Navigator, facilitating easier
   navigation through the use of an XPath-based
   "table of contents" style tree.

* Improved Find/Replace functionality now
  allows use of XPath-based filters for
  narrowing the search area and Regular
  Expression parameters in replace.

* Drag n' Drop support has been added to
  the editor.
