    Release Notes: The desktop functionality has been removed and the management of services is now performed by the OSGI framework. The project no longer uses dom4j. The API has been fully reworked, which involved major changes to the Service and Action interfaces. The inclusion of Marker interfaces and the Explorer have been updated. There is no need to add or remove documents any more. The Explorer now simply browses the file-system instead.

            The xngr XML browser project is still very much free and open source.

            Please have a look at:

            I gather this is not the case anymore? I failed to find anything free on the site. Time to take the listing down, isn't it?

            I am sorry about the confusion we are offering a range of products, under the name Exchanger.

            The Exchanger 'XML Browser' is an Open Source project licensed under the Mozilla Public License,

            The Exchanger 'XML Editor' also listed on Freshmeat is however a non Open Source, commercial product.

            We are planning to continue our Open-Source development and at the same time extend our Commercial product range.

            This commercial product is listed as GPL. There are many, many alternatives. In fact, i was amazed to see them go commercial with such a product.

            Freshmeat's reputation is for up-to-date info, please correct this.
