Subject [ANNOUNCE] Xerces 2.0.0 (beta2) Release
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2001 09:25:54 GMT
I'm very pleased to announce the release of Xerces 2.0.0 (beta2),
the second beta release of the re-designed and re-implemented
Xerces-J parser. This release is primarily a bug fix release.
However, a new XNI parser configuration interface has been added 
to allow the creation of "pull" parser configurations. In 
addition, more XNI documentation has been written that explains
how to re-use the standard Xerces2 parser components.

The beta2 release is available from the Xerces-J distribution 


Xerces2 has support for XML 1.0; Namespaces; DOM 2.0 (including 
events, traversal, and range); SAX 2.0; and JAXP 1.1. Xerces2
does not yet support XML Schema and has removed support for the
deferred DOM implementation.

Xerces2 is a nearly complete rewrite of the Xerces 1.x codebase 
in order to make the code cleaner, more modular, and easier to 
maintain. Applications using only the standard interfaces such 
as JAXP, DOM, and SAX should not see any differences.

To get involved with Xerces2 development: download the beta
release, subscribe to the xerces-j-dev mailing list, and start
writing really great code!
