This is a tool I wrote long back, and used exhaustively for a project, and then forgot about it. I did not even do a public release of the tool. When migrating WizTools.org Google Code projects to GitHub, I noticed this project. Today, I invested some time and cleaned the code and made a release. Get it from: https://github.com/wiztools/xml-validator/releases.

All newer releases of desktop tools published by WizTools.org will require Java 7. This is a evolutionary step we are taking to benefit from newer constructs introduced in this version of Java.

- Export the svn-history for the mini-project, and create it as a new project under GitHub.
- Create git/GitHub specific source assets like README.md and .gitignore.
- Update the mini-project GitHub URL in the pom.xml.
- Update the dependencies for the project to the latest version.
- Make a new minor-release through GitHub.
- Remove the code for the project from Google Code.
- Deprecate the download from Google Code.

The message from Google seems to be clear: it does not want to invest in non-profit making venture like Google Code. Google has been killing feature-after-feature from the Google Code service recently. The two most affected me were:
Add to this fact, Google not adding any new feature to Google Code in the recent past.
Well, the message seemed clear. And we have initiated on our part to move WizTools.org code to other well maintained services like GitHub / BitBucket. Our most used project, RESTClient code is already moved to GitHub. Note, we have moved only the source code, Issues and Wiki is still hosted in Google Code. Moving Issues and Wiki will be done in a phased manner in near future.
