Subject Re: xerces/xalan build versions? Xalan 0.19.5 works with Xerces 1.0.2
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2000 13:35:02 GMT
As noted in my original announcement.  The on-line doc at
http://xml.apache.org/xalan/readme.html#status also notes this, although it
should be posted in a more conspicuous area (and it should also specific
the Xalan version there; it just implies the 'current' one).  We're also
writing a FAQ that should include a chart of Xalan/Xerces versions.

Subject:  [ANN] Xalan 0.19.5 developer's distribution now available at
      xml.apache.org/dist; fixes bug in 0.19.4

Apparently the Xalan 0.19.4 distribution had problems with some of our more
complex stylesheet tests which we missed when we posted it.  Hence, here's
an update to 0.19.5 which should behave properly.
We strongly suggest that any 0.19.4 users remove that build and use 0.19.5
instead.  Sorry for any inconvenience!

We've posted an updated Xalan 0.19.5 which works with Xerces-J 1.0.1 in the
normal distribution area.  See:

This release is a 'weekly developer's release' (even though it has a
maintenance update number on it).  We have done minimal testing; caveat

This really is the last planned Xalan build that uses the Xerces 1.0.1

Build notes:
-- The TransformToDom sample is broken in this distribution; sorry.

-- (from 0.19.4) See README in the root along with STATUS, DONE, and BUGS,
which are fairly well updated.  Lots of bugfixes; some more performance
work; new documentation; greatly improved samples.

-- (from 0.19.4) Docs do build from this distribution; they are also
provided pre-built for your reading pleasure in the /build/docs directory
(sources are in ./xdocs).  If you wish to build docs yourself you'll also
need some files from xml-site copied into ./xdocs/style
You can also look at updated docs online: http://xml.apache.org/xalan

-- Compiled on WinNT Server 4.0 SP5 with Sun's JDK 1.1.8; all using
Makefile, EXCEPT docs, which must be compiled with JDK 1.2.2,

-- Sources are tagged 'xalan_0_19_5'.

-- Xerces compatibility: this distribution works with the Xerces-J 1.0.1
distribution.  This distribution probably does not compile against the
daily Xerces CVS repository due to their upcoming SAX2 work.
NOTE that the Xalan CVS repository currently (24-Feb-00) *does* have what
we think are the changes needed to build/run with Xerces 1.0.2.  Note
however that we have not yet done significant testing with Xerces 1.0.2 /
Xalan CVS, so caveat emptor again.
