From: Boris Kolpackov on

I am pleased to announce the availability of CodeSynthesis XSD 3.3.0.

CodeSynthesis XSD is an open-source (GPL2 + proprietary license), cross-
platform W3C XML Schema to C++ data binding compiler. Provided with a
schema, it generates C++ classes that represent the given vocabulary as
well as parsing and serialization code. You can then access the data
stored in XML using types and functions that semantically correspond to
your application domain rather than dealing with elements, attributes,
and text in a direct representation of XML such as DOM or SAX.

Major new features in this release:

* Support for uniform parsing and serialization of XML documents
with varying root elements.

* Configurable application character encoding (UTF-8, ISO-8859-1, etc).

* Support for stream-oriented, partially in-memory/partially event-
driven XML parsing and serialization.

* Support for embedding the binary representation of the schema
grammar into the application.

* Generation of the detach functions that allow moving object
model sub-trees without copying.
* Support for XML compression.

* Smaller and faster generated code for polymorphic XML Schemas (xsi:type and substitution groups).

The release also adds support for a range of new operating system and C++
compiler versions, including:

* AIX 6.x
* Mac OS X 10.6
* Windows 7,
* Windows Server 2008

* Visual Studio 2010 (10.0)
* GNU g++ 4.5.0
* Intel C++ 11
* Sun Studio 12.1
* IBM XL C++ 11

Visual Studio 2010 project and solution files are provided for all the
For the complete list of new features in this release see:

CodeSynthesis XSD is available on IBM AIX, GNU/Linux, HP-UX, Mac OS X,
Solaris, Windows, OpenVMS, and z/OS. Supported C++ compilers include: GNU g++, HP aCC, IBM XL C++, Intel C++, Sun C++, and MS Visual C++.
