I would like to know of some good resources relating to the current developments in XML Schema and its implementations? I am wondering if I need to plan on using Schema instead of DTD's for future projects.

The success of Schema is mainly attributed to its flexibility. It can support ranges, data types and more than anything, the Schema itself is a well-formed XML.
There is no doubt that, one day Schema will replace the DTD. It is recommended that you have a plan to migrate to Schma from DTD. For now, atleast keep the Schema insync with the DTD.
Here are some links -

http://www.w3schools.com/schema/default.asp

Having said that, I would like to know if all parsers support Schema to the extend they support DTDs? Anyone?

I think that the support of schemas by most parsers are up to the standard. I personally have not come across a parser that does not support schemas.
Then again I do not use many different parsers.
