BEDFORD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 2, 2006 -- Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML tools and components for advanced data integration, today renewed their popular upgrade program allowing customers who purchased Altova XMLSpy® (2006/2005 Professional or Enterprise Editions) or Altova MapForce® (2006/2005 Professional or Enterprise Editions), Altova XML Suite® (2006/2005 Professional or Enterprise Editions) and any other competing XML development tools on or before June 1, 2006, to upgrade to Stylus Studio® 2006 XML Enterprise Edition or Stylus Studio 2006 XML Professional Edition and save $250 off already low prices. This offer expires June 16, 2006.

"We're pleased to be able to offer this upgrade path to developers using Altova and other XML IDEs -- when you compare Stylus Studio 2006 on a feature-by-feature basis, we're confident that you'll conclude that for standards-based data integration XML application development, Stylus Studio 2006 is the tool for the job," said Robert Evelyn, Stylus Studio's General Manager. "Many of the latest new features in Altova XMLSpy 2006 seem to remain rooted in Altova's proprietary home-grown standards, leaving XML application developers with little insight into how their applications will perform in the real world. Stylus Studio remains committed to promoting W3C standards in the XML community. We encourage developers to make the switch to Stylus Studio this week to take advantage of this extraordinary upgrade opportunity. Visit our website, get educated on the facts about XML tools and components, and see why upgrading to Stylus Studio 2006 makes so much sense."
