Dear Stylus Studio Friends,
The new year is scarcely one month old, but we already have lots to report!
For starters, there's Stylus Studio 6 Release 2. The latest release of
Stylus Studio boasts literally hundreds of product enhancements, and is
available now for free trial download. We're also proud to present our
interview with Dr. Daniela Florescu, editor of the XQuery specification.
Read this month's Stylus Scoop and learn about where XQuery stands today
and what's on the road ahead from a true industry insider and visionary.
We're also rolling out the industry's first ever XQuery Innovator's Award
Program to showcase your XQuery work. And to help with your resolve as you
face the year ahead, we've published an XML developer's new year's
resolutions. And what opening letter would be complete without soliciting
your feedback? We're trying to make this XML newsletter the best in the
industry, so let us know what you think! Really! Keep those cards and
letters coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ciao, and best wishes for a great new year!

1) An Interview with Daniela Florescu, Editor of the W3C XQuery
What's the scoop with XQuery you ask? We were curious, too, so we went
straight to the top and called Dr. Daniela Florescu. And she called back!
Pundits can ruminate, and columnists can speculate, but it's hard to
imagine a more plugged-in source than Dr. Florescu, the editor-in-chief of
the W3C XQuery specification since day one. Scoop Editor Ivan Pedruzzi was
privileged to chat with Dr. Florescu about where XQuery is today, and where
it's heading. If you read only one XQuery article this year, this should be
the one! A must-read for application architects, engineers and managers
2) Enter the XQuery Innovator Awards!
Grammies! Emmies! Studdies! Studdies? It's awards season in the
entertainment industry, and Stylus Studio is happy to jump on the statuette
bandwagon and sponsor the First Annual Stylus Studio XQuery Innovator
Award. This award, for enterprise software developers, systems integrators,
and IT consultants, gives you the opportunity to have your work publicly
showcased and to gain valuable recognition as a pioneer in the XQuery
industry. Win accolades from the XML developer community, and a big ol' XML

Hurry - no entries will be accepted after March 31, 2005!
3) An XML Developer's New Years Resolutions
Another year, and another neglected list of new years resolutions, right?
Not so fast! This year is going to be different, and Stylus Studio is going
to help! By now, you're probably wondering, "Can a class-leading XML IDE
really help me accomplish my 2005 goals?" If that XML IDE is Stylus Studio,
of course it can :)
4) Stylus Studio Hacks: Building a Custom CSV to XML Adapter
We are pleased to introduce a new column in the Scoop, Stylus Studio Hacks.
Each month, Principal Software Architect Tony Lavinio adds luster to one of
Stylus Studio's hidden gems and shares the results with you.
You probably already know that the Stylus Studio Convert to XML module
provides dozens of converters that let you easily convert non-XML files
(dBase (II-V), email, ini files, tab-separated values, Java properties
files, RTF, CSV files, and many more) to XML on-the-fly - just pick a file,
pick a converter, and open that file as XML anywhere in Stylus Studio. And
you can use Convert to XML to easily build converters from scratch using an
intuitive visual editor. But did you know that you can write custom XML
Adapters to support custom file types? This month, Tony describes how to
implement a bidirectional file filter for accessing CSV files as XML data
sources. You can learn about this exciting new way to extend Stylus Studio
