Wednesday, December 11, 2002
BALTIMORE--Dec. 10, 2002-- Corel Corporation today announced Corel XMetaL 4, a new platform designed to simplify the implementation of customized XML applications while extending XML authoring power to any ActiveX-compliant application, including popular Web browsers. Corel XMetaL 4 provides the only richly-customizable XML editing solutions that support dynamic validation for both DTDs and W3C Schemas. With an intense focus on the needs of both developers and end users, Corel XMetaL 4 is comprised of four separate components: Corel XMetaL Author, Corel XMetaL for ActiveX, Corel XMetaL Developer and Corel XMetaL Central. "The introduction of the Corel XMetaL 4 platform is a significant step in the evolution of XML content creation. Building upon the strength of XMetaL 3, we have organized the architecture of the XMetaL solution set to deliver powerful individual components, addressing the specific needs of developers and end users alike," said Dr. Bruce Sharpe, executive vice president of XML content solutions at Corel. "New support for ActiveX takes XML content creation beyond the traditional word-processor environment by streamlining the process of creating custom solutions and enabling XML editing to take place virtually anywhere." "Corel has long been a leader in the development of solutions for structured and unstructured content," says Ronald Schmelzer, senior analyst at ZapThink, LLC. "What XMetaL 4.0 brings to the table is a very flexible, complete, and robust product for developing XML-based solutions that can be used by line-of-business users as well as experienced editors and developers. Corel clearly sees the vision that XML will become pervasive in the enterprise in the near future."
