I am happy to announce the first release (v0.1.0) of XML Boiler (Automatic transformation of XML namespaces) software.

This release is alpha. But it seems to be already useful. For example, the documentation of XML Boiler is built using XML Boiler itself.

Here is the list of advantages of this new kind of XML software:


  • freely intermix tag sets of different sets of tag semantics (using XML namespaces), without disturbing each other (such as by name clash) in the global world
  • add your new tags to HTML (and other XML-based formats)
    • get rid of using HTML in future Web, switch it to proper semantic XML formats
      • make XSL-format based browsers with automatic generation of XSL from other XML formats
    • make automatic coloring of source listings (for example)
  • add macroses and include (such as by XInclude) other files in XML
  • intermix different XML formats, with intelligent automatic processing of the mix
    • embed one XML format in another one
    • automatically choose the order of different XML converters applied to your mixed XML file
  • make browsers to show your XML in arbitrary format
  • make processing XML intelligent (with your custom scripts)
  • integrating together XML conversion and validation scripts written in multiple programming languages
  • associating semantics (such as relations with other namespaces and validation rules) to a namespace
    • semantics can be described as an RDF resource at a namespace URL (or a related URL)
  • TODO
  • many more opportunities
  • integrate all of the above in single command
