1.8.7: Mar 6 2000

  • This is a bug fix release:

  • cleanup, especially memory wise
  • the parser should be more reliable, especially the HTML one, it should not crash, whatever the input !
  • Integrated various patches, especially a speedup improvement for large dataset from Carl Nygard, configure with --with-buffers to enable them.
  • attribute normalization, oops should have been added long ago !
  • attributes defaulted from DTDs should be available, xmlSetProp() now does entities escaping by default.

1.7.4: Oct 25 1999

  • Lots of HTML improvement
  • Fixed some errors when saving both XML and HTML
  • More examples, the regression tests should now look clean
  • Fixed a bug with contiguous charref

1.7.3: Sep 29 1999

  • portability problems fixed
  • snprintf was used unconditionally, leading to link problems on system were it's not available, fixed

1.7.1: Sep 24 1999

  • The basic type for strings manipulated by libxml has been renamed in 1.7.1 from CHAR to xmlChar. The reason is that CHAR was conflicting with a predefined type on Windows. However on non WIN32 environment, compatibility is provided by the way of a #define .
  • Changed another error : the use of a structure field called errno, and leading to troubles on platforms where it's a macro

1.7.0: Sep 23 1999

  • Added the ability to fetch remote DTD or parsed entities, see the nanohttp module.
  • Added an errno to report errors by another mean than a simple printf like callback
  • Finished ID/IDREF support and checking when validation
  • Serious memory leaks fixed (there is now a memory wrapper module)
  • Improvement of XPath implementation
  • Added an HTML parser front-end
