XMLmind overview

XMLmind is a strictly validating, near WYSIWYG editor for DocBook, DITA, MathML, XHTML, and XML. Because XMLmind is highly extensible, it may be also be used to create documents conforming to your own custom schema. Its users are generally technical writers who need to author large, complex, modular, documents. XMLmind is also available as attractively priced, "special editions" called: XMLmind DITA Editor, XMLmind DocBook Editor, XMLmind XHTML Editor. XMLmind Personal Edition is free to use by many persons and organizations.

What’s new in version 10.3.0

Enhancements:
  • Added useful options: "Use default viewer", "Use text editor", "Use XMLmind XML Editor", to the "Helper Application Editor" dialog box and to its simplified variant, the "Helper Application Not Found" dialog box.
  • Added a "Open Containing Folder" entry to the contextual menu of the "Browse Files" tool. This menu entry opens selected file or directory in the standard file manager of your operating system. For example, on the Mac, this will open selected file in the Finder.
  • Images displayed in the styled view (“normally”, not as thumbnails or as bounding boxes) are now given a tooltip showing the location of the image.
  • Upgraded Saxon to version 11.4. Doing this required replacing the Apache Commons Resolver (lib/resolver.jar) by the XMLResolver (lib/xmlresolver.jar).
  • Upgraded XML parser Apache Xerces2 Java to version 2.12.2.
  • "Edit source" add-on: upgraded its RSyntaxTextArea components to version 3.3.0.
  • Upgraded the Apache Batik plug-in to version 1.16.
  • Upgraded the Apache FOP plug-in to version 2.8.
  • Upgraded XMLmind Assembly Processor to version 1.2.
  • Upgraded XMLmind Web Help Compiler (whc for short) to version 3.3.4.
  • Upgraded XMLmind DITA Converter (ditac for short) to version 3.12.
  • Upgraded XMLmind Ebook Compiler (ebookc for short) to version 1.6.
  • Upgraded the XMLmind XSL-FO Converter (XFC for short) plug-in to version 6.3.3.
  • Upgraded the "Word To XML" add-on to XMLmind Word To XML version 1.9.
  • "FlatLaf Look and Feel" add-on: updated FlatLaf to version 2.6. (On Linux, the FlatLaf light theme is used as the default Look & Feel.)
  • XMLmind XML Editor is now officially supported

Comments are with respect to the Personal Edition: It's amateur hour. You can't drag a file onto the icon to open it, when you open files you multiple instances of the application instead of multiple windows. The ONLY way to open a file is to use the menu. I presume this is because the application is not properly registering itself with the system. If they can't get the basics right it gives me no confidence in exploring much further.

there is no free personal edition anymore; the download link is dead, and when investigating on the site, it appears that only a 30-day demo version of the professional version exists now.
