Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 18:49:42 GMT

Hi all,

The Apache Xerces project team is pleased to announce that version 2.11.0
of Apache Xerces-J is now available.

Xerces-J 2.11.0 can be downloaded at: http://xerces.apache.org/mirrors.cgi

This release expands on Xerces' experimental support for XML Schema 1.1
(see Xerces-J-bin.2.11.0-xml-schema-1.1-beta.zip) by providing
implementations for the simplified complex type restriction rules (also
known as subsumption), xs:override and a few other XML Schema 1.1 features.
Xerces-J 2.11.0 also introduces experimental support for XML Schema
Component Designators (SCD). It fixes several bugs which were present in
Xerces-J 2.10.0 and also includes a few other minor enhancements.

Specifically, the changes introduced in this release are:

* Implemented XML Schema 1.1's simplified complex type restriction rules
(also known as subsumption). [Sandy Gao]

* Added support for XML Schema 1.1's overriding component definitions
(<xs:override>). [Khaled Noaman, Udayanga Wickramasinghe]

* Added experimental support for a parser and evaluator for XML Schema
Component Designators (SCD). [Sandy Gao, Ishan Jayawardena]

* Implemented support for the vc:typeAvailable, vc:typeUnavailable,
vc:facetAvailable and vc:facetUnavailable attributes for conditional
inclusion processing in XML Schema 1.1 documents. [Mukul Gandhi]

* Implemented support for allowing xs:group as a child of xs:all in XML
Schema 1.1 documents. [Mukul Gandhi]

* Made several enhancements to the support for assertions in the XML Schema
1.1 implementation. [Mukul Gandhi]

* Improved the ways in which the XML Schema API exposes values and identity
constraint information. [Sandy Gao]

* Fixed a bug where XMLSchemaValidator.findSchemaGrammar() was not getting
called for substitution groups. [Michael Glavassevich]

* Fixed a bug in the regular expression support which was introduced in the
previous release. See JIRA Issue XERCESJ-1456 for details. [Khaled Noaman]

* Fixed multiple issues with decimal precision in the processing of
xs:precisionDecimal values. [Sandy Gao]

* Fixed various bugs and made various improvements. [Mukul Gandhi, Sandy
Gao, Michael Glavassevich, Johannes Koch, Khaled Noaman]
