present in the same relative location as in the repository.
Release 2.0.1 Tue June 5 2007
- Fixed bugs #1515266, #1515600: The character data handler's calling
of XML_StopParser() was not handled properly; if the parser was
stopped and the handler set to NULL, the parser would segfault.
- Fixed bug #1690883: Expat failed on EBCDIC systems as it assumed
some character constants to be ASCII encoded.
- Minor cleanups of the test harness.
- Fixed xmlwf bug #1513566: "out of memory" error on file size zero.
- Fixed outline.c bug #1543233: missing a final XML_ParserFree() call.
- Fixes and improvements for Windows platform:
bugs #1409451, #1476160, #1548182, #1602769, #1717322.
- Build fixes for various platforms:
HP-UX, Tru64, Solaris 9: patch #1437840, bug #1196180.
All Unix: #1554618 (refreshed config.sub/config.guess).
#1490371, #1613457: support both, DESTDIR and INSTALL_ROOT,
without relying on GNU-Make specific features.
#1647805: Patched to work better with Intel compiler.
- Fixes to to have make check work correctly:
bugs #1408143, #1535603, #1536684.
- Added Open Watcom support: patch #1523242.
Release 2.0.0 Wed Jan 11 2006
- We no longer use the "check" library for C unit testing; we
always use the (partial) internal implementation of the API.
- Report XML_NS setting via XML_GetFeatureList().
- Fixed headers for use from C++.
- XML_GetCurrentLineNumber() and XML_GetCurrentColumnNumber()
now return unsigned integers.
- Added XML_LARGE_SIZE switch to enable 64-bit integers for
byte indexes and line/column numbers.
- Updated to use libtool 1.5.22 (the most recent).
- Added support for AmigaOS.
- Some mostly minor bug fixes. SF issues include: #1006708,
#1021776, #1023646, #1114960, #1156398, #1221160, #1271642.
Release 1.95.8 Fri Jul 23 2004
- Major new feature: suspend/resume. Handlers can now request
that a parse be suspended for later resumption or aborted
altogether. See "Temporarily Stopping Parsing" in the
documentation for more details.
- Some mostly minor bug fixes, but compilation should no
longer generate warnings on most platforms. SF issues
include: #827319, #840173, #846309, #888329, #896188, #923913,
#928113, #961698, #985192.
Release 1.95.7 Mon Oct 20 2003
- Fixed enum XML_Status issue (reported on SourceForge many
times), so compilers that are properly picky will be happy.
- Introduced an XMLCALL macro to control the calling
convention used by the Expat API; this macro should be used
to annotate prototypes and definitions of callback
implementations in code compiled with a calling convention
other than the default convention for the host platform.
- Improved ability to build without the configure-generated
expat_config.h header. This is useful for applications
which embed Expat rather than linking in the library.
- Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues #458907, #609603,
#676844, #679754, #692878, #692964, #695401, #699323, #699487,
- Improved hash table lookups.
- Added more regression tests and improved documentation.
Release 1.95.6 Tue Jan 28 2003
- Added XML_FreeContentModel().
- Added XML_MemMalloc(), XML_MemRealloc(), XML_MemFree().
- Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues #615606, #616863,
#618199, #653180, #673791.
- Enhanced the regression test suite.
- Man page improvements: includes SF issue #632146.
Release 1.95.5 Fri Sep 6 2002
- Added XML_UseForeignDTD() for improved SAX2 support.
- Added XML_GetFeatureList().
- Defined XML_Bool type and the values XML_TRUE and XML_FALSE.
- Use an incomplete struct instead of a void* for the parser
(may not retain).
- Fixed UTF-8 decoding bug that caused legal UTF-8 to be rejected.
- Finally fixed bug where default handler would report DTD
events that were already handled by another handler.
Initial patch contributed by Darryl Miles.
- Removed unnecessary DllMain() function that caused static
linking into a DLL to be difficult.
- Added VC++ projects for building static libraries.
- Reduced line-length for all source code and headers to be
no longer than 80 characters, to help with AS/400 support.
- Reduced memory copying during parsing (SF patch #600964).
- Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues #580793, #434664,
#483514, #580503, #581069, #584041, #584183, #584832, #585537,
#596555, #596678, #598352, #598944, #599715, #600479, #600971.

- Made skippedEntityHandler conform to SAX2 (see source comment)
- Re-implemented WFC: Entity Declared from XML 1.0 spec and
added a new error "entity declared in parameter entity":
see SF bug report #569461 and SF patch #578161
- Re-implemented section 5.1 from XML 1.0 spec:
see SF bug report #570263 and SF patch #578161
Release 1.95.3 Mon Jun 3 2002
- Added a project to the MSVC workspace to create a wchar_t
version of the library; the DLLs are named libexpatw.dll.

workspace to support both the library and xmlwf application.
- Added a Windows installer for Windows users; includes
- Added compile-time constants that can be used to determine the
Expat version
- Removed a lot of GNU-specific dependencies to aide portability
among the various Unix flavors.
- Fix the UTF-8 BOM bug.
- Cleaned up warning messages for several compilers.
- Added the -Wall, -Wstrict-prototypes options for GCC.
Release 1.95.1 Sun Oct 22 15:11:36 EDT 2000
- Changes to get expat to build under Microsoft compiler
- Removed all aborts and instead return an UNEXPECTED_STATE error.
- Fixed a bug where a stray '%' in an entity value would cause an
- Defined XML_SetEndNamespaceDeclHandler. Thanks to Darryl Miles for
finding this oversight.
- Changed default patterns in lib/ to fit non-GNU makes
Thanks to for reporting and providing an
account to test on.
- The reference had the wrong label for XML_SetStartNamespaceDecl.
Reported by an anonymous user.
Release 1.95.0 Fri Sep 29 2000
- XML_ParserCreate_MM
Allows you to set a memory management suite to replace the
standard malloc,realloc, and free.
- XML_SetReturnNSTriplet
If you turn this feature on when namespace processing is in
effect, then qualified, prefixed element and attribute names
are returned as "uri|name|prefix" where '|' is whatever
separator character is used in namespace processing.
- Merged in features from perl-expat
o XML_SetElementDeclHandler
o XML_SetAttlistDeclHandler
o XML_SetXmlDeclHandler
o XML_SetEntityDeclHandler
o StartDoctypeDeclHandler takes 3 additional parameters:
sysid, pubid, has_internal_subset
o Many paired handler setters (like XML_SetElementHandler)
now have corresponding individual handler setters
o XML_GetInputContext for getting the input context of
the current parse position.
- Added reference material
- Packaged into a distribution that builds a sharable library
