Subject Xerces-C++ 3.0.0 released
Date Mon, 29 Sep 2008 18:19:40 GMT

I am pleased to announce the release of Xerces-C++ 3.0.0. This
version is interface-incompatible with Xerces-C++ 2.8.0 and
contains a large number of improvements, bug fixes, and clean-
ups, including:

  * Autotools-based build system for the UNIX/Linux/Mac OS X platforms
  * Project files for VC++ 9
  * Support for the ICU transcoder in VC++ 7.1, 8, and 9 project files
  * libcurl-based net accessor
  * Support for XInclude in DOM
  * Support for both XPath 1 and XPath 2 models in the DOM XPath interface
  * Support for the XML Schema subset of XPath 1 in DOM
  * Conformance to the final DOM Level 3 interface specification
  * Ability to provide custom DOM memory manager as well as tune the global 
    DOM heap parameters
  * All public and widely used interfaces as well as a large portion of the 
    implementation were converted to be 64-bit safe.
  * Various XML Schema fixes including the fix for the large maxOccurs and 
    minOccurs bug as well as for the changed ##other interpretation
  * Reviewed and cleaned up diagnostics messages
  * Optimizations for SAX/SAX2 and DOM parsing as well as XML Schema

Note that it takes up to 24 hours for the release to propagate
to all the mirrors so use the master distribution directory if
the files are not yet available on your favorite mirror. It is
important that you verify the integrity of the files you download
using either the PGP signatures or MD5 checksums as described on
the download page.

Finally I would like to thank all who contributed source code, 
submitted bug reports, and helped test the beta releases. I
would like to especially thank Alberto Massari for his help
in getting this release out.
