XPontus(http://xpontus.sf.net) is a free java based XML editor designed towards text editing. It aims to provide a free alternative to commercial XML Editors.

   As XPontus is written in Java it is available for all java enabled operating systems. It has been reported to run correctly on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris and FreeBSD. There are many installers for platform convenience.

The software is distributed under the GNU GPL License.

This is the first release candidate of XPontus XML Editor 1.0.0. There are now linux packages and a real windows installer.

Thanks to lots of comments, I tried to improve the user experience in that release.
