[ANN] XML Hammer 1.0 rc-1 Released

I am very pleased to announce that the first release-candidate of the
XML Hammer application is now available for download.

The XML Hammer application is a tool that simplifies elementary XML
actions like checking for well-formedness, validation, transformation
and xpath searches using any JAXP implementation.

After all these years of XML, it is still relatively difficult to
simply validate or transform XML files. You are currently either
to use extensive, sometimes expensive, and most often difficult to use
tools with a lot of extra functionality unnecessary for these simple
tasks and very often not flexible enough to provide what you want, or
you will have to be almost a programmer and create your own
or script to handle these elementary XML related tasks.

The XML Hammer tool addresses these issues by providing a free and
open-source tool that has a (relatively) simple to use user-interface
however still allowing the flexibility for the user to specify
that he/she would have been able to specify when writing a script for
this same task him/herself.


This is a major bug fix release, the main new features are:
* Comprehensive help documentation,
* deactivate and activate properties,
* easier to use validation functionality.


Among the bugs fixed are:
* Selecting items in combo-boxes using keys,
* issues when performing XPath searches,
* module initialization error handling
