As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 124907 HTML parse buffer problem when parsing larse in-memory docs
2 124110 DTD validation && wrong namespace
3 123564 xmllint --html --format
5 TODO for the XML parser and stuff:
10 this tend to be outdated :-\ ...
15 - use case of using XInclude to load for example a description.
16 order document + product base -(XSLT)-> quote with XIncludes
18 HTML output with description of parts <---(XSLT)--
22 - XInclude at the SAX level (libSRVG)
23 - fix the C code prototype to bring back doc/libxml-undocumented.txt
24 to a reasonable level
25 - Computation of base when HTTP redirect occurs, might affect HTTP
27 - Computation of base in XInclude. Relativization of URIs.
28 - listing all attributes in a node.
29 - Better checking of external parsed entities TAG 1234
30 - Go through erratas and do the cleanup.
31 http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-19980210-errata ... started ...
32 - jamesh suggestion: SAX like functions to save a document ie. call a
33 function to open a new element with given attributes, write character
34 data, close last element, etc
35 + inversted SAX, initial patch in April 2002 archives.
36 - htmlParseDoc has parameter encoding which is not used.
37 Function htmlCreateDocParserCtxt ignore it.
38 - fix realloc() usage.
39 - Stricten the UTF8 conformance (Martin Duerst):
41 The bad files are in http://www.w3.org/2001/06/utf-8-wrong/.
42 - xml:id normalized value
47 - move all string manipulation functions (xmlStrdup, xmlStrlen, etc.) to
48 global.c. Bjorn noted that the following files depends on parser.o solely
49 because of these string functions: entities.o, global.o, hash.o, tree.o,
50 xmlIO.o, and xpath.o.
52 - Optimization of tag strings allocation ?
54 - maintain coherency of namespace when doing cut'n paste operations
55 => the functions are coded, but need testing
57 - function to rebuild the ID table
58 - functions to rebuild the DTD hash tables (after DTD changes).
64 - Tools to produce man pages from the SGML docs.
66 - Add Xpointer recognition/API
68 - Add Xlink recognition/API
69 => started adding an xlink.[ch] with a unified API for XML and HTML.
70 it's crap :-(
72 - Implement XSchemas
73 => Really need to be done <grin/>
74 - datatype are complete, but structure support is very limited.
76 - extend the shell with:
77 - edit
78 - load/save
79 - mv (yum, yum, but it's harder because directories are ordered in
80 our case, mvup and mvdown would be required)
86 - Add HTML validation using the XHTML DTD
87 - problem: do we want to keep and maintain the code for handling
88 DTD/System ID cache directly in libxml ?
89 => not really done that way, but there are new APIs to check elements
90 or attributes. Otherwise XHTML validation directly ...
92 - XML Schemas datatypes except Base64 and BinHex
94 - Relax NG validation
96 - XmlTextReader streaming API + validation
98 - Add a DTD cache prefilled with xhtml DTDs and entities and a program to
99 manage them -> like the /usr/bin/install-catalog from SGML
100 right place seems $datadir/xmldtds
101 Maybe this is better left to user apps
102 => use a catalog instead , and xhtml1-dtd package
104 - Add output to XHTML
105 => XML serializer automatically recognize the DTd and apply the specific
108 - Fix output of <tst val="x
110 - compliance to XML-Namespace checking, see section 6 of
113 - Correct standalone checking/emitting (hard)
114 2.9 Standalone Document Declaration
116 - Implement OASIS XML Catalog support
119 - Get OASIS testsuite to a more friendly result, check all the results
120 once stable. the check-xml-test-suite.py script does this
122 - Implement XSLT
123 => libxslt
125 - Finish XPath
126 => attributes addressing troubles
127 => defaulted attributes handling
128 => namespace axis ?
129 done as XSLT got debugged
131 - bug reported by Michael Meallin on validation problems
132 => Actually means I need to add support (and warn) for non-deterministic
133 content model.
134 - Handle undefined namespaces in entity contents better ... at least
135 issue a warning
136 - DOM needs
137 int xmlPruneProp(xmlNodePtr node, xmlAtttrPtr attr);
138 => done it's actually xmlRemoveProp xmlUnsetProp xmlUnsetNsProp
140 - HTML: handling of Script and style data elements, need special code in
141 the parser and saving functions (handling of < > " ' ...):
143 Attributes are no problems since entities are accepted.
144 - DOM needs
145 xmlAttrPtr xmlNewDocProp(xmlDocPtr doc, const xmlChar *name, const xmlChar *value)
146 - problem when parsing hrefs with & with the HTML parser (IRC ac)
147 - If the internal encoding is not UTF8 saving to a given encoding doesn't
148 work => fix to force UTF8 encoding ...
149 done, added documentation too
150 - Add an ASCII I/O encoder (asciiToUTF8 and UTF8Toascii)
151 - Issue warning when using non-absolute namespaces URI.
152 - the html parser should add <head> and <body> if they don't exist
153 started, not finished.
154 Done, the automatic closing is added and 3 testcases were inserted
155 - Command to force the parser to stop parsing and ignore the rest of the file.
156 xmlStopParser() should allow this, mostly untested
157 - support for HTML empty attributes like <hr noshade>
158 - plugged iconv() in for support of a large set of encodings.
159 - xmlSwitchToEncoding() rewrite done
160 - URI checkings (no fragments) rfc2396.txt
161 - Added a clean mechanism for overload or added input methods:
163 - dynamically adapt the alloc entry point to use g_alloc()/g_free()
164 if the programmer wants it:
165 - use xmlMemSetup() to reset the routines used.
166 - Check attribute normalization especially xmlGetProp()
167 - Validity checking problems for NOTATIONS attributes
168 - Validity checking problems for ENTITY ENTITIES attributes
169 - Parsing of a well balanced chunk xmlParseBalancedChunkMemory()
170 - URI module: validation, base, etc ... see uri.[ch]
171 - turn tester into a generic program xmllint installed with libxml
172 - extend validity checks to go through entities content instead of
173 just labelling them PCDATA
174 - Save Dtds using the children list instead of dumping the tables,
175 order is preserved as well as comments and PIs
176 - Wrote a notice of changes requires to go from 1.x to 2.x
177 - make sure that all SAX callbacks are disabled if a WF error is detected
178 - checking/handling of newline normalization
180 - correct checking of '&' '%' on entities content.
181 - checking of PE/Nesting on entities declaration
182 - checking/handling of xml:space
183 - checking done.
184 - handling done, not well tested
185 - Language identification code, productions  to 
186 => done, the check has been added and report WFness errors
187 - Conditional sections in DTDs  to 
188 => should this crap be really implemented ???
189 => Yep OASIS testsuite uses them
190 - Allow parsed entities defined in the internal subset to override
191 the ones defined in the external subset (DtD customization).
192 => This mean that the entity content should be computed only at
193 use time, i.e. keep the orig string only at parse time and expand
194 only when referenced from the external subset :-(
195 Needed for complete use of most DTD from Eve Maler
196 - Add regression tests for all WFC errors
197 => did some in test/WFC
198 => added OASIS testsuite routines
201 - I18N: http://wap.trondheim.com/vaer/index.phtml is not XML and accepted
202 by the XML parser, UTF-8 should be checked when there is no "encoding"
203 declared !
204 - Support for UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoding
205 => added some convertion routines provided by Martin Durst
206 patched them, got fixes from @@@
207 I plan to keep everything internally as UTF-8 (or ISO-Latin-X)
208 this is slightly more costly but more compact, and recent processors
209 efficiency is cache related. The key for good performances is keeping
210 the data set small, so will I.
211 => the new progressive reading routines call the detection code
212 is enabled, tested the ISO->UTF-8 stuff
213 - External entities loading:
214 - allow override by client code
215 - make sure it is alled for all external entities referenced
216 Done, client code should use xmlSetExternalEntityLoader() to set
217 the default loading routine. It will be called each time an external
218 entity entity resolution is triggered.
219 - maintain ID coherency when removing/changing attributes
220 The function used to deallocate attributes now check for it being an
221 ID and removes it from the table.
222 - push mode parsing i.e. non-blocking state based parser
223 done, both for XML and HTML parsers. Use xmlCreatePushParserCtxt()
224 and xmlParseChunk() and html counterparts.
225 The tester program now has a --push option to select that parser
226 front-end. Douplicated tests to use both and check results are similar.
228 - Most of XPath, still see some troubles and occasionnal memleaks.
229 - an XML shell, allowing to traverse/manipulate an XML document with
230 a shell like interface, and using XPath for the anming syntax
231 - use of readline and history added when available
232 - the shell interface has been cleanly separated and moved to debugXML.c
233 - HTML parser, should be fairly stable now
234 - API to search the lang of an attribute
235 - Collect IDs at parsing and maintain a table.
236 PBM: maintain the table coherency
237 PBM: how to detect ID types in absence of DtD !
238 - Use it for XPath ID support
239 - Add validity checking
240 Should be finished now !
241 - Add regression tests with entity substitutions
243 - External Parsed entities, either XML or external Subset  and 
244 parsing the xmllang DtD now works, so it should be sufficient for
245 most cases !
247 - progressive reading. The entity support is a first step toward
248 asbtraction of an input stream. A large part of the context is still
249 located on the stack, moving to a state machine and putting everyting
250 in the parsing context should provide an adequate solution.
251 => Rather than progressive parsing, give more power to the SAX-like
252 interface. Currently the DOM-like representation is built but
253 => it should be possible to define that only as a set of SAX callbacks
254 and remove the tree creation from the parser code.
257 - DOM support, instead of using a proprietary in memory
258 format for the document representation, the parser should
259 call a DOM API to actually build the resulting document.
260 Then the parser becomes independent of the in-memory
261 representation of the document. Even better using RPC's
262 the parser can actually build the document in another
264 => Work started, now the internal representation is by default
265 very near a direct DOM implementation. The DOM glue is implemented
266 as a separate module. See the GNOME gdome module.
268 - C++ support : John Ehresman <email@example.com>
269 - Updated code to follow more recent specs, added compatibility flag
270 - Better error handling, use a dedicated, overridable error
271 handling function.
272 - Support for CDATA.
273 - Keep track of line numbers for better error reporting.
274 - Support for PI (SAX one).
275 - Support for Comments (bad, should be in ASAP, they are parsed
276 but not stored), should be configurable.
277 - Improve the support of entities on save (+SAX).
