Description _ pkuzel 2002-08-28 22:33:01 UTC
New version of Xerces was released. I contains
mainly perfomance fixes: 
- avoid using exceptions to determine whether an
array needs to be resized.
- avoid adding the commonly used XML symbols to
the symbol table again and again.
- improve scanning speed by skipping end tag names
and using proper input buffer size.
- Applied fixes to Xerces's regular expression
support to address a number of bugs reported by users.

Unfortunately it is not covered by you general
legal approval for Xercez 2.0.X. We need to ask
for reexamining if it's still compatible with SPL.

2.2.1 is the most recent version. 
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2003-06-05 17:13:30 UTC
2.4.0 is released. Note that earlier releases such as 2.2.x are very
buggy in handling of XML Schema and anyone wishing to use Schema
effectively needs at least 2.3.x.

Petr please work on this; I think it is important to keep this library
