Service Pack 1 of Altova Software Version 2009 Now Available
On March 31, we released Service Pack 1 (SP1) of our complete Version 2009 product line. SP1 contains helpful bug fixes and other useful enhancements.

It is a free update for all v2009 users.

Note: V2009 SP1 is a new product version (not a patch). Simply download and install your product(s) from the download page listed below to update.

Additionally, based on partner feedback, we have added a new feature to MapForce. Altova MapForce v2009 SP1 provides support for non-inlined user-defined functions. Now users can create recursive function calls, enabling them to map data dynamically by expressing operations in terms of themselves. Download v2009 SP1

2) Case Study - Altova XMLSpy and DiffDog: Music to Recordare’s Ears
Recordare® is a technology company focused on providing software and services to the musical community. Their flagship products, the Dolet® plugin family, are platform-independent plugins for popular music notation programs. Acting as a high quality translator between the MusicXML data format and other applications, Dolet enables users to work with these files on any conceivable system, including industry leading notation and musical composition applications Finale® and Sibelius®.

In creating the Dolet plugins, Recordare used Altova's XML editor, XMLSpy, and the diff/merge tool, DiffDog. The leading XML Schema editing capabilities in XMLSpy and the strong XML and directory differencing support in DiffDog enabled Recordare to write and polish the MusicXML schemas and perform regression testing on the Dolet plugins. The resulting high quality of the schemas and software has made MusicXML and the Dolet plugins a key element of the toolkit for composers, arrangers, publishers, copyists, and engravers throughout the industry wherever printed music is used.
