I am pleased to announce the availability of CodeSynthesis XSD/e 2.1.0.

CodeSynthesis XSD/e is an open-source (GPL2 + proprietary license) XML
parser/serializer generator for mobile and embedded systems. It provides
event-driven, stream-oriented XML parsing, XML serialization, XML Schema
validation, and C++ data binding while maintaining a small footprint and

Compared to general-purpose XML parsers and serializers, the XSD/e-
generated code is 2-10 times faster while maintaining the lowest static
and dynamic memory footprints. For example, a validating parser executable
can be as small as 120KB in size. XSD/e is also highly-portable and can
be used without STL, RTTI, iostream, C++ exceptions, and C++ templates.

Major new features in this release:

* Support for XML Schema polymorphism (xsi:type and substitution groups)
for both parsing and serialization.

* Support for delegation-based implementation reuse in addition to

* Automatic generation of sample serializer implementations and test

* Support for parser and serializer reuse after an error.

* The file-per-type compilation mode in addition to file-per-schema.

For a complete list of new features in this release see:


Supported embedded targets include Embedded Linux, VxWorks, QNX, and
Windows CE/Mobile. Precompiled binary distributions are available for
GNU/Linux, Solaris, and Windows host development platforms.
