* 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 .

* 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.
