Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT]: Xerces-J 2.6.1 now available
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2004 00:20:42 GMT
Hi everyone,

The Xerces-J team is very happy to announce that version 2.6.1 of Xerces-J
is now available.

This release contains support for OASIS XML Catalogs and now includes the
XML Commons Resolver (version 1.1) with the distribution. It also provides
an experimental implementation of the latest drafts for Document Object
Model Level 3 Core and Load/Save (see beta2-dom3-Xerces-J-bin.2.6.1.zip).
This will be the last release that supports JDK 1.1. Future releases of
Xerces-J will require at least JDK 1.2.

Specifically, the significant changes introduced in this release are:

* Added support for XML Catalogs. [Michael Glavassevich]

* Implemented some remaining XML Schema errata and fixed several schema
related bugs. [Sandy Gao]

* Fixed various DOM Level 3 bugs. [Neil Delima, Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Michael
Glavassevich, Elena Litani, K. Venugopal]

* Implemented well-formedness checking for LSSerializer (DOM Level 3).
[Elena Litani]

* Modified the XJavac task used by the build file so that Xerces can be
built on Mac OS X with Apple JDK 1.4. [Alex Milowski]

* Fixed possible security hole: the features and properties set on the
parser were not propagated to the XMLSchemaLoader. [Elena Litani]

* Implemented the latest XInclude draft, excluding support for XPointer.
[Michael Glavassevich, K. Venugopal]

* Implemented missing support for supplemental characters in XML 1.1
names. [Michael Glavassevich]

* Fixed a bug which caused the parser to overwrite some of the user's
configuration with default values when namespace support was disabled.
[Michael Glavassevich]

* Implemented various performance improvements. [Michael Glavassevich]

* Fixed various bugs. [Michael Glavassevich, Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Elena Litani]
