<changes> - Relax-NG: Compiling to regexp and streaming validation on top of the
xmlReader interface, added to xmllint --stream
- xmlReader: Expand(), Next() and DOM access glue, bug fixes
- Support for large files: RGN validated a 4.5GB instance
- Thread support is now configured in by default
- Fixes: update of the Trio code (Bjorn), WXS Date and Duration fixes
(Charles Bozeman), DTD and namespaces (Brent Hendricks), HTML push parser
and zero bytes handling, some missing Windows file path conversions,
behaviour of the parser and validator in the presence of &quot;out of memory&quot;
error conditions
- extended the API to be able to plug a garbage collecting memory
allocator, added xmlMallocAtomic() and modified the allocations
accordingly.
- Performances: removed excessive malloc() calls, speedup of the push and
xmlReader interfaces, removed excessive thread locking
- Documentation: man page (John Fleck), xmlReader documentation
- Python: adding binding for xmlCatalogAddLocal (Brent M Hendricks)
<changes> - bugfixes: XPath, XInclude, file/URI mapping, UTF-16 save (Mark
Itzcovitz), UTF-8 checking, URI saving, error printing (William Brack),
PI related memleak, compilation without schemas or without xpath (Joerg
Schmitz-Linneweber/Garry Pennington), xmlUnlinkNode problem with DTDs,
rpm problem on , i86_64, removed a few compilation problems from 2.5.7,
xmlIOParseDTD, and xmlSAXParseDTD (Malcolm Tredinnick)
- portability: DJGPP (MsDos) , OpenVMS (Craig A. Berry)
- William Brack fixed multithreading lock problems
- IPv6 patch for FTP and HTTP accesses (Archana Shah/Wipro)
- Windows fixes (Igor Zlatkovic, Eric Zurcher), threading (St&#xE9;phane
Bidoul)
- A few W3C Schemas Structure improvements
- W3C Schemas Datatype improvements (Charlie Bozeman)
- Python bindings for thread globals (St&#xE9;phane Bidoul), and method/class
