X3D-Edit is an open-source Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics authoring tool
for simple error-free editing, authoring and validation of X3D scenes.

I'm happy to announce another regular update for X3D-Edit.
Lots of small but valuable enhancements and improvements.

- provide prompt to add a helpful default DEF name (or else clear it)
- improved ExpandableList handling for many nodes, including a
	Negate Values operator for cell/row/column/all entries
- Improved data handling for metadata nodes Text/WorldInfo nodes
- improved MFString parsing, authors don't have to worry about
	escape codes since the tool handles it for you
- UrlExpandableList ability to add new url values based on path
	given in the scene's meta-tag identifier, if available
- improved updates to layer configuration for Netbeans 7.0
- bugfix to match schema when X3D version set to 3.3

Significant upgrade also provided:  X3D-Edit again works as a plugin
within Netbeans 7.0+.

Upcoming work:  continued implementation of volume visualization
nodes for X3D v3.3.

Available at the following site.  Comments and feedback welcome,


all the best, Don
