How to parse <assert> tag in XSD1.1 using XSOM Parser?

I have been using XSOM parser (xsom-20140925.jar) for parsing XSD 1.0 and able to achieve parsing all xs:elements and restrictions (like pattern, minOccurs etc..).

Lately our XSD1.0 been upgraded to version XSD1.1, where new <assert> tag been included. My XSOM parser fails to identify this assert tag and throws the following exception.

Could not parse the inputstream: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Unexpected <xsd:assert> appears at line. java.lang.NullPointerException

Any help and suggestions would help me solve the issue.
