Subject new xmlcommons and resolver release?
Date Sat, 09 Sep 2006 15:03:44 GMT

I'm wondering if a new release of xmlcommons can be expedited to 
allow the upcoming Xerces-2.8.1 release to include it in its distribution?

My special interest is xmlcommons-resolver, which I supplied patches 
for and Norm Walsh applied.  The current release is totally 
non-functional in its support for the legacy XCatalog standard.  I 
have a project that continues to use XCatalog and obtained that 
support from Xerces1.  However, we are moving to Xerces2, so that 
support must come from xmlcommons-resolver.  I've built the latest 
source from SVN that includes my patches, and XCatalog support works 
beautifully!  Now I just need to get an official release available 
for users.  I'd like to be able to say, "just download Xerces-2.8.1 
and use the xercesImpl.jar, xml-apis.jar, and resolver.jar 
provided".  Otherwise I have to provide custom builds and that is 
simply not acceptable for some.

Besides this, I believe there have been other changes made to the 
source repository and there hasn't been a release for quite a 
while.  It would be nice to have a release that's up-to-date.
