This clause has been removed from EULA staring with version 6.2.

Some audit clauses do not unconditionally require payment of audit expenses, because a court can be asked to award the audit costs when there was a clear intent to defraud, and there was reasonable cause to demand an audit.

Yes, the license is not bound to a specific platform, you can freely change from one platform to another using the same license and it includes both standalone version and the Eclipse plugin version.

Audit clauses are included in most software licenses. If no express right to an audit is found to exist, refusal to cooperate is an option.

Read the license carefully
In many ways it is a good license (I particularly like section 2.3, which licenses to one user on all the computers he/she uses).

But section 3.2 is enough to stop me from buying. They wouldn't need it if they had good grounds for starting an audit that showed fraudulent use. So why is the provision there?

Great timesaver
This is a great tool for XML work, particularly if you need to deal with XSLT. I'm not in any way involved with synchrosoft, but found the cost for this to be more than offset by the timesavings I've seen.

Sure, it's not opensource, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Nice, but closed source
This editor seems nice from a quick look at it, but it's shareware and not even paying gets you access to the source... I want to modify a tree browser for a custom application, and closed source prevents that. Hey Freshmeat, how about a filter that only shows open source projects?
