<p>Intensive development secures competitive edge</p>
<p>Sydney, 15 July 2003 – Software AG has further expanded Tamino XML Server’s functional range along with its support for system platforms. This intensive development has allowed the implementation of a number of commonly used and high-performance platforms, including Linux for Intel and main-frames, Windows 2000 and Windows XP, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX and HP-UX.</p>
<p>In the newly expanded Version 4.1.4, documents that are not available in XML format can now be indexed as well. Tamino XML Server supports many formats for this, including Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/StarOffice, MP3 files and ZIP archives, and in doing so automatically accepts meta data stored in the files. These ID tags include, for example, the title and artist for MP3 files or information about the author, workgroups or comments for Office documents. Additional document types can be added.</p>
<p>Simplified document search
The latest version of Tamino XML Server includes an option to carry out phonetic document searches as well. The number of hits is thereby increased, especially in cases where the exact spelling for the search term is unknown. The phonetic search option is optimised for German, but it can also be used effectively for Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese etc.).</p>
<p>Another new feature is the highlighting of found search terms within the list of results. With freely definable tags, developers can present hits flexibly within the application that started the search.</p>
<p>A special word-root search function takes into account varying tenses and declinations. This function is also designed for the German language, but it can be modified for use with other languages.</p>
<p>Schema Editor expanded
The new version of the Schema Editor is more user friendly. With it, developers manage and edit Tamino Schema Definitions (TSD). The new version converts XML schema definitions to the Tamino-specific format largely automatically. The new Schema Editor can be down-loaded from the Developer Community website (</p>
<p>Supported platforms and availability
Tamino XML Server 4.1.4 is available immediately for Windows 2000/XP Pro, Linux (Intel systems and S/390) HP-UX, Sun Solaris 8 and 9, and IBM AIX 5.1 and 5.2.</p>
