Hi, great news!

My favorite feature is easy access to arbitrary elements in XML 
documents. Using the expressions provided by hierarchical configurations 
you can select specific elements even if they are in deeply nested or 
repeating structures. I guess if you need to parse a whole document into 
in-memory structures, other solutions like Digester or Jaxb are better 
suited, but for just picking out some values this direct access is a 
very convenient method.
