ActiveState announced the release of Visual XSLT 2.0. Visual XSLT now ships with ActiveState’s debugger, enabling developers to test XSLT code embedded in other applications or libraries built for the Microsoft .NET Framework without the need for special instrumentation or access to source code. Also new, the Visual Schema Mapper allows programmers to build transformations of XML files in a drag-and-drop interface, without writing code or employing XML schemas. In addition, Visual XSLT will support Microsoft’s next major version of Visual Studio .NET, code named “Whidbey”. ActiveState Visual XSLT combines the familiar Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 integrated development environment with XSLT-specific debugging and editing features and an interactive tool for building and testing XPath expressions. Visual XSLT licenses are $295. The program is also offered as part of the ActiveState Open Source Language Suite for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 – a bundle of Visual Perl, Visual Python, and Visual XSLT-for $495. Upgrades are $99.95 for current users. www.ActiveState.com
