I released Expat 1.95.7 yesterday, and updated the Python and PyXML
projects to use the new version. It fixes a number of bugs in Expat
as well as cleaning up some build issues that caused Python and PyXML
to ship a slightly modified version. (It may also prove a little
faster in some applications, since it's now using a string hash
function based on Python's.)
I'd be interested in hearing if there are any objections to updating
the Python 2.3.x maintenance tree to also use the new version. I
think it's safe (no new features) and allows us to ship an unmodified
Please let me know if you know of any objections.
