IVI Technologies Announces Stylus Studio X14 Release 2 Is Now Available

Latest update includes Visual Schema Designer for Relax NG, Saxon 9.4, XSLT Editor Enhancements and More

Miami, FL - July 24h, 2012 – IVI Technologies, the master distributor of Progress® DataDirect® Stylus Studio®, the award-winning XML Integrated Development Environment (IDE) from Progress Software, today announced the immediate availability of the Stylus Studio X14 Release 2 XML Enterprise Suite. This latest update includes a sophisticated Visual Schema Designer for Relax NG and support for the most recent XML technologies and standards.

The Stylus Studio product is marketed and sold through IVI Technologies. IT professionals can download a free trial of the Stylus Studio X14 XML Enterprise Edition Suite today at: http://www.stylusstudio.com/download.

"Stylus Studio X14 Release 2 provides support for the latest XML trends, including recent developments on XSLT 3.0 and XQuery 3.0 and adds a new two-way editor and visual designer for the Relax NG schema language," said Ivan Pedruzzi, Product Manager. “Thanks to a vast feature set which includes database access, legacy data conversion and transformation capabilities, Stylus Studio remains “The Developers’ Choice” for XML no matter the size or sophistication of your IT department.”

"Relax NG is often a better alternative to traditional schema languages like DTD and XML Schema but its adoption is frequently challenged by the lack of sophisticated support in XML tools. This will be no longer an obstacle, thanks to the Stylus Studio X14 Release 2,” Pedruzzi added.
