Marrowsoft Limited are pleased to announce the public Beta release of their Xselerator
product - a fully integrated XSLT IDE.  Xselerator Beta is available as a 30-day
trial from...


Some of the rich features of Xselerator are:-
* XSLT debugger:-
    * Full stepping capability;
    * Breakpoints on both XSLT and input XML;
    * Conditional breakpoints;
    * View template call stack;
    * Watch values (including full XPath expression watches);
    * Optional stepping into built-in rules
    * Uses MSXML3 transformations
       (so that debugging session behaviour matches a real, production environment
transformation engine); 
* Clear and easy to use IDE; 
* XSL/XSLT element and attribute intuitive (like 'intellisense' or 'code insight')
* HTML element and attribute intuitive drop-downs; 
* Automatic tag completion - in XSL/XSLT tag completion follows model and, optionally,
fills element with mandatory attributes; 
* Wizards for building tables, selects/listboxes and XSLT grouping/distinct
* XPath query analyser (test XPath queries to see the resulting node sets -
click on resulting list item to view position to node in source/tree view);

* One click transformation test; 
* Use of alternative command line transformation engines (e.g. Instant Saxon,
XT, etc.)
* Full transformation testing (including XSL parameter passing, start mode and
output test path); 
* Full XSL,XSLT,XML and HTML colour syntax highlighting (fully customisable);

* All the usual editor capabilities (cut, copy, paste, find, replace) plus special
'Copy as RTF' and 'Copy as HTML' features allowing syntax highlighting to be
preserved when copying and pasting to word-processors, presentation slides,
html editors and newsgroups etc.; 
* Source edit, tree and browser view (requires IE5.x) modes; 
* Files opened history (re-open previous files from menu - re-opened XSLT files
restore previous parameters/start mode); 
* Project files (holding .xml and .xsl files); 
* Print and print preview (with selectable highlighting options); 
* HTML Tidying (using HTMLTidy/TidyCOM);

Apologies for this intrusion into the XSL-List forum - but we honestly hope
that this new tool may be of some real use to the professional XSLT programmers
and consultants here.

Martin "Marrow" Rowlinson
