[2]1Release 1.95.8 Fri Jul 23 2004
2        - Major new feature: suspend/resume.  Handlers can now request
3          that a parse be suspended for later resumption or aborted
4          altogether.  See "Temporarily Stopping Parsing" in the
5          documentation for more details.
6        - Some mostly minor bug fixes, but compilation should no
7          longer generate warnings on most platforms.  SF issues
8          include: 827319, 840173, 846309, 888329, 896188, 923913,
9          928113, 961698, 985192.

11Release 1.95.7 Mon Oct 20 2003
12        - Fixed enum XML_Status issue (reported on SourceForge many
13          times), so compilers that are properly picky will be happy.
14        - Introduced an XMLCALL macro to control the calling
15          convention used by the Expat API; this macro should be used
16          to annotate prototypes and definitions of callback
17          implementations in code compiled with a calling convention
18          other than the default convention for the host platform.
19        - Improved ability to build without the configure-generated
20          expat_config.h header.  This is useful for applications
21          which embed Expat rather than linking in the library.
22        - Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 458907, 609603,
23          676844, 679754, 692878, 692964, 695401, 699323, 699487,
24          820946.
25        - Improved hash table lookups.
26        - Added more regression tests and improved documentation.
27
28Release 1.95.6 Tue Jan 28 2003
29        - Added XML_FreeContentModel().
30        - Added XML_MemMalloc(), XML_MemRealloc(), XML_MemFree().
31        - Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 615606, 616863,
32          618199, 653180, 673791.
33        - Enhanced the regression test suite.
34        - Man page improvements: includes SF issue 632146.
35
36Release 1.95.5 Fri Sep 6 2002
37        - Added XML_UseForeignDTD() for improved SAX2 support.
38        - Added XML_GetFeatureList().
39        - Defined XML_Bool type and the values XML_TRUE and XML_FALSE.
40        - Use an incomplete struct instead of a void* for the parser
41          (may not retain).
42        - Fixed UTF-8 decoding bug that caused legal UTF-8 to be rejected.
43        - Finally fixed bug where default handler would report DTD
44          events that were already handled by another handler.
45          Initial patch contributed by Darryl Miles.
46        - Removed unnecessary DllMain() function that caused static
47          linking into a DLL to be difficult.
48        - Added VC++ projects for building static libraries.
49        - Reduced line-length for all source code and headers to be
50          no longer than 80 characters, to help with AS/400 support.
51        - Reduced memory copying during parsing (SF patch #600964).
52        - Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 580793, 434664,
53          483514, 580503, 581069, 584041, 584183, 584832, 585537,
54          596555, 596678, 598352, 598944, 599715, 600479, 600971.

56Release 1.95.4 Fri Jul 12 2002
57        - Added support for VMS, contributed by Craig Berry.  See
58          vms/README.vms for more information.
59        - Added Mac OS (classic) support, with a makefile for MPW,
60          contributed by Thomas Wegner and Daryle Walker.
61        - Added Borland C++ Builder 5 / BCC 5.5 support, contributed
62          by Patrick McConnell (SF patch #538032).
63        - Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 441449, 563184,
64          564342, 566334, 566901, 569461, 570263, 575168, 579196.
65        - Made skippedEntityHandler conform to SAX2 (see source comment)
66        - Re-implemented WFC: Entity Declared from XML 1.0 spec and
67          added a new error "entity declared in parameter entity":
68          see SF bug report 569461 and SF patch 578161
69        - Re-implemented section 5.1 from XML 1.0 spec:
70          see SF bug report 570263 and SF patch 578161
71
72Release 1.95.3 Mon Jun 3 2002
73        - Added a project to the MSVC workspace to create a wchar_t
74          version of the library; the DLLs are named libexpatw.dll.
75        - Changed the name of the Windows DLLs from expat.dll to
76          libexpat.dll; this fixes SF bug #432456.
77        - Added the XML_ParserReset() API function.
78        - Fixed XML_SetReturnNSTriplet() to work for element names.
79        - Made the XML_UNICODE builds usable (thanks, Karl!).
80        - Allow xmlwf to read from standard input.
81        - Install a man page for xmlwf on Unix systems.
82        - Fixed many bugs; see SF bug reports 231864, 461380, 464837,
83          466885, 469226, 477667, 484419, 487840, 494749, 496505,
84          547350.  Other bugs which we can't test as easily may also
85          have been fixed, especially in the area of build support.
86
87Release 1.95.2 Fri Jul 27 2001

91          xmlwf.exe.
92        - Added compile-time constants that can be used to determine the
93          Expat version

95          among the various Unix flavors.
96        - Fix the UTF-8 BOM bug.
97        - Cleaned up warning messages for several compilers.
98        - Added the -Wall, -Wstrict-prototypes options for GCC.
99
100Release 1.95.1 Sun Oct 22 15:11:36 EDT 2000
101        - Changes to get expat to build under Microsoft compiler
102        - Removed all aborts and instead return an UNEXPECTED_STATE error.
103        - Fixed a bug where a stray '%' in an entity value would cause an
104          abort.
105        - Defined XML_SetEndNamespaceDeclHandler. Thanks to Darryl Miles for
106          finding this oversight.
107        - Changed default patterns in lib/Makefile.in to fit non-GNU makes
108          Thanks to robin@unrated.net for reporting and providing an
109          account to test on.

111          Reported by an anonymous user.
112
113Release 1.95.0 Fri Sep 29 2000
114        - XML_ParserCreate_MM
115                Allows you to set a memory management suite to replace the
116                standard malloc,realloc, and free.
117        - XML_SetReturnNSTriplet
118                If you turn this feature on when namespace processing is in
119                effect, then qualified, prefixed element and attribute names
120                are returned as "uri|name|prefix" where '|' is whatever
121                separator character is used in namespace processing.
122        - Merged in features from perl-expat
123                o XML_SetElementDeclHandler
124                o XML_SetAttlistDeclHandler
125                o XML_SetXmlDeclHandler
126                o XML_SetEntityDeclHandler
127                o StartDoctypeDeclHandler takes 3 additional parameters:
128                        sysid, pubid, has_internal_subset
129                o Many paired handler setters (like XML_SetElementHandler)
130                  now have corresponding individual handler setters
131                o XML_GetInputContext for getting the input context of
132                  the current parse position.
133        - Added reference material
134        - Packaged into a distribution that builds a sharable library
