Customers who Purchased Competing XML Products Can Save Big by Trading in Their Licenses and Upgrading to Stylus Studio 2006, the World's Best XML IDE

Bedford, MA, June 2, 2006 - Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML tools and components for advanced data integration, today renewed their popular upgrade program allowing customers who purchased competing XML tools on or before June 1, 2006, to upgrade to Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise Edition or Stylus Studio 2006 XML Professional Edition and save $250 off already low prices. This offer expires June 16, 2006. Qualifying customers seeking a robust XML IDE can grab this unique opportunity by emailing your proof of purchase.

"We're pleased to be able to offer this upgrade path to developers using other XML IDEs - when you compare Stylus Studio 2006 on a feature-by-feature basis, we're confident that you'll conclude that for standards-based XML application development, Stylus Studio 2006 is the tool for the job," said Robert Evelyn, Stylus Studio's General Manager. "Many of the latest new features of competing XML IDE's seem to remain rooted in their home-grown components, leaving XML application developers with little insight into how their applications will perform in a production environment that uses different XML processing components. Stylus Studio remains committed to promoting W3C standards in the XML community. We encourage developers to make the switch to Stylus Studio this week to take advantage of this extraordinary upgrade opportunity. Visit our website, get educated on the facts about XML tools and components, and see why upgrading to Stylus Studio 2006 makes so much sense."
