Note: Please, be aware that this is beta software. It has been developed and mainly tested over Suse 8.1/8.2/9.0/9.1/9.3/10.0 Linux distribution, although it should work (maybe with minor modifications) over other Linux distributions (successfull tests over Red Hat 7.3/8.0/9.0 and FC4, Slackware 8.1, Mandrake 10.0 and Debian 3.0/3.1 have been already done). Let us know if you test VNUML over other distributions to include the information here.

About VNUML versions:

  • VNUML language (in fact the DTD for the VNUML files) is identified by two version numbers, for example, VNUML DTD 1.2.
  • VNUML parser is identified by three version numbers. The first two numbers refers to the VNUML DTD version the parser works with. For example, 1.2.1 works with VNUML DTD 1.2 files.
  • The first public releases were VNUML DTD 1.2 and 1.2.1.

You can also get old releases, but you should use always the newest stable release.
