Until someone takes over or they open the source, I'd suggest not to use it, unless you're running OLD java and dislike new features and specs Piotr 17:38, 12 December 2009 (EST)

Additional notes

It has problems with newer releases of Java SDK/JRE. Support and the user community are almost completely dead. The light version is a nice-looking free editor with lots of features and – as Java moves on, leaving Exchanger behind – a growing number of quirks. Use at your own risk and backup often.

A patch for the debugger (see the relevant forum thread) is available at (dated 05 Dec 2006).

Use it to overwrite xngr-editor.jar in the installation directory.
