It has been a concern for many users that Compass hasn't been updated for quite a while. We want to thank you for those who gave us supports and encouragements. For the year of 2002, we were under the transition from a one-product company to a multi-products company. As the transition is completing and the new product, XmlShell
The Ultimate Lightweight XML Editor
, is releasing, we want to ensure our users that Compass is still alive. Here is our plan for the future versions of Compass.
* Support Latest Browsers
We plan to update Compass to work with all the latest versions of major browsers. Currently, our list includes IE, Netscape, Opera, and Mozilla.
* MDI User Interface
Currently, Compass is an SDI (Single-Document Interface) application. We want to change it to an MDI (Multiple Documents Interface) application so that users can open more multiple bookmark files at the same time.
* Browser Integration
We want to have better integration between Compass and browsers. Possibly, we'll have Compass bar in IE or browser windows in Compass.
* Support XML/XSLT
With the advance of XML and XSLT, we want Compass to be able to generate web pages, reports, etc. using the XSLT way, which is a standard and very very powerful way.
* Other Areas
There are many other areas we want to improve to make Compass better and more useful.
