I am pleased to announce the release of CodeSynthesis XSD 4.0.0.

XSD is an open source, 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 XML 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 C++11 in addition to C++98.

  * Support for ordered types including mixed content.

  * Support for anyType and anySimpleType content extraction as
    DOM and text, respectively.

  * Improved streaming, partially in-memory parsing and serialization
    support including better XML namespace handling and streaming at
    multiple document levels.

  * Automatic generation of make-style dependency information.

This release also adds support for Clang as well as Visual Studio 2012
(11.0) and 2013 (12.0).

A more detailed discussion of these features can be found in the following
blog post:

For the complete list of new features in this version see the official
release announcement:

XSD is written in portable C++ (both C++98/03 and C++11 are supported) and
you should be able to use it with any reasonably modern C++ compiler. In
particular, we have tested this release on GNU/Linux (x86/x86-64), Windows
(x86/x86-64), Mac OS X (x86), and Solaris (x86/x86-64/SPARC) with GNU g++
4.2.x-4.8.x, MS Visual C++ 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, Sun Studio 12u2,
and Clang 3.x.
