Xoom 2.1

This release builds functionality on version 2.0, which marked the transition to the major new version of .NET 4.0.


  • Scheme, infrastructure and data-entry matching support have been finalised for Service Optimization 8 (or newer). The majority of core interpretations have also been added. This makes this release the first Xoom version that is practically usable for Service Optimization 8.
  • Settings Migration Tool now displays the XoomXML representation of the selected item in the Export tab. This is particularly useful when quickly browsing through items of the same kind to understand how they are configured.
  • The XPath text box in Xoom Explorer now changes background colour depending on whether the result is zero (white) or more (green) hits, or whether the XPath is invalid (red).
  • Xoom Toolkit now supports a number of additional features:
    • Xoom messages can now be sent to remote servers.
    • Writing the result to an output file instead of the console is now supported. This avoids the occasional mangling of Unicode characters in some cases.
    • XSLT transformation (running a report) of the result of a Xoom call is now supported.
  • Added a report to remove transactional information from XoomXML. The main purpose of the new report is in configuration versioning.


  • Added detailed interpretation for a number of additional settings in both Service Optimization 7.5 and 8.
  • Improved consistency of formatting XoomXML obtained via different Xoom client tools.
  • Xoom Console now deploys Scheme changes by default.
  • Improved reliability of automatic data-entry matching for Rule, Objective and Business Value Function interpretation. The Booleans are now also interpreted as Booleans, not as numbers.
  • The robustness of the installer has been greatly improved.
