Visual XSLT is a plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio .Net that
offers full-featured editing and debugging of XSLT files.

The two major additional features for version 2.0 are the

A "just-in-time" debugger, that lets you debug .Net XSLT Transforms
that are embedded in other applications (even if you don't have
the source for the application source code, XSLT, or XML).  You
tell Visual XSLT which application to run, and when it reaches
a call to System.Xml.Xsl.Transform, the XSLT debugger comes to
the foreground.

A Visual "schema mapper".  Build two trees, based on either
XML Schemas or instances, drag nodes from the source tree
to the target tree, and then automatically generate an XSLT
file.  This feature is intended to act more like a wizard:
it gets you started, but you'll most likely need to add some
extra information to the generated XSLT code.

For every person who was happy that Visual XSLT was just a
high-powered text editor for XSLT, there were two requests for
a visual tool that would ease the XSLT writing process.  We
haven't abandoned the first group, and are interested in
hearing of more cool editing features.

This Beta is free, and expires on November 1, 2003.

Please write me if you have any other questions.

Thanks for your time,
