For those who don't read the expat-discuss list, this is the announcement for
Expat 1.95.8; it went to that list on July 24. I've updated the Expat
included in Python 2.4, but haven't update PyXML yet. The upcoming Python
2.4a2 release will include the new Expat.
Expat is a fast XML parser written in C based on code written by XML and SGML
guru James Clark. A new version, Expat 1.95.8, has been released by the
current maintainers of the package, fixing still more minor problems caught
by picky compilers and improving the package's cross-platform support. One
rather nice new feature has been introduced as well.
1. 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.
2. 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.
See the Expat home page, http://www.libexpat.org/, for more information on the
changes in this release and on Expat in general.
