 2373     about &amp;#38; charref parsing</li>

 2384     </ul>
 2385   </li>
 2386 </ul><h3>2.0.0: Apr 12 2000</h3><ul>
 2387   <li>First public release of libxml2. If you are using libxml, it's a good
 2388     idea to check the 1.x to 2.x upgrade instructions. NOTE: while initially
 2389     scheduled for Apr 3 the release occurred only on Apr 12 due to massive
 2390     workload.</li>
 2391   <li>The include are now located under $prefix/include/libxml (instead of
 2392     $prefix/include/gnome-xml), they also are referenced by
 2393     <pre>#include &lt;libxml/xxx.h&gt;</pre>
 2394     <p>instead of</p>
 2395     <pre>#include "xxx.h"</pre>
 2396   </li>
 2397   <li>a new URI module for parsing URIs and following strictly RFC 2396</li>
 2398   <li>the memory allocation routines used by libxml can now be overloaded
 2399     dynamically by using xmlMemSetup()</li>
 2400   <li>The previously CVS only tool tester has been renamed
 2401     <strong>xmllint</strong> and is now installed as part of the libxml2
 2402     package</li>
 2403   <li>The I/O interface has been revamped. There is now ways to plug in
 2404     specific I/O modules, either at the URI scheme detection level using
 2405     xmlRegisterInputCallbacks()  or by passing I/O functions when creating a
 2406     parser context using xmlCreateIOParserCtxt()</li>
 2407   <li>there is a C preprocessor macro LIBXML_VERSION providing the version
 2408     number of the libxml module in use</li>
 2409   <li>a number of optional features of libxml can now be excluded at
 2410     configure time (FTP/HTTP/HTML/XPath/Debug)</li>
 2411 </ul><h3>2.0.0beta: Mar 14 2000</h3><ul>
 2412   <li>This is a first Beta release of libxml version 2</li>
 2413   <li>It's available only from<a href="ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/">xmlsoft.org
 2414     FTP</a>, it's packaged as libxml2-2.0.0beta and available as tar and
 2415   RPMs</li>
 2416   <li>This version is now the head in the Gnome CVS base, the old one is
 2417     available under the tag LIB_XML_1_X</li>
 2418   <li>This includes a very large set of changes. From a  programmatic point
 2419     of view applications should not have to be modified too much, check the
 2420     <a href="upgrade.html">upgrade page</a></li>
 2421   <li>Some interfaces may changes (especially a bit about encoding).</li>
 2422   <li>the updates includes:
 2423     <ul>
 2424       <li>fix I18N support. ISO-Latin-x/UTF-8/UTF-16 (nearly) seems correctly
 2425         handled now</li>
 2426       <li>Better handling of entities, especially well-formedness checking
 2427         and proper PEref extensions in external subsets</li>
 2428       <li>DTD conditional sections</li>
 2429       <li>Validation now correctly handle entities content</li>
 2430       <li><a href="http://rpmfind.net/tools/gdome/messages/0039.html">change
 2431         structures to accommodate DOM</a></li>
 2432     </ul>
 2433   </li>
 2434   <li>Serious progress were made toward compliance, <a href="conf/result.html">here are the result of the test</a> against the
 2435     OASIS testsuite (except the Japanese tests since I don't support that
 2436     encoding yet). This URL is rebuilt every couple of hours using the CVS
 2437     head version.</li>
 2438 </ul><h3>1.8.7: Mar 6 2000</h3><ul>
 2439   <li>This is a bug fix release:</li>
 2440   <li>It is possible to disable the ignorable blanks heuristic used by
 2441     libxml-1.x, a new function  xmlKeepBlanksDefault(0) will allow this. Note
 2442     that for adherence to XML spec, this behaviour will be disabled by
 2443     default in 2.x . The same function will allow to keep compatibility for
 2444     old code.</li>
 2445   <li>Blanks in &lt;a&gt;  &lt;/a&gt; constructs are not ignored anymore,
 2446     avoiding heuristic is really the Right Way :-\</li>
 2447   <li>The unchecked use of snprintf which was breaking libxml-1.8.6
 2448     compilation on some platforms has been fixed</li>

 2453     it without troubles</li>
 2454 </ul><h3>1.8.5: Jan 21 2000</h3><ul>
 2455   <li>adding APIs to parse a well balanced chunk of XML (production <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml#NT-content">[43] content</a> of the
 2456     XML spec)</li>
 2457   <li>fixed a hideous bug in xmlGetProp pointed by Rune.Djurhuus@fast.no</li>
 2458   <li>Jody Goldberg &lt;jgoldberg@home.com&gt; provided another patch trying
 2459     to solve the zlib checks problems</li>
 2460   <li>The current state in gnome CVS base is expected to ship as 1.8.5 with
 2461     gnumeric soon</li>

 2475     xmlLoadExternalEntity(), some fix on entities processing were added</li>
 2476   <li>cleaned up WIN32 includes of socket stuff</li>
 2477 </ul><h3>1.8.2: Dec 21 1999</h3><ul>
 2478   <li>I got another problem with includes and C++, I hope this issue is fixed
 2479     for good this time</li>
 2480   <li>Added a few tree modification functions: xmlReplaceNode,
 2481     xmlAddPrevSibling, xmlAddNextSibling, xmlNodeSetName and
 2482     xmlDocSetRootElement</li>
 2483   <li>Tried to improve the HTML output with help from <a href="mailto:clahey@umich.edu">Chris Lahey</a></li>
 2484 </ul><h3>1.8.1: Dec 18 1999</h3><ul>
 2485   <li>various patches to avoid troubles when using libxml with C++ compilers
 2486     the "namespace" keyword and C escaping in include files</li>
 2487   <li>a problem in one of the core macros IS_CHAR was corrected</li>
 2488   <li>fixed a bug introduced in 1.8.0 breaking default namespace processing,
 2489     and more specifically the Dia application</li>
 2490   <li>fixed a posteriori validation (validation after parsing, or by using a
 2491     Dtd not specified in the original document)</li>
 2492   <li>fixed a bug in</li>
 2493 </ul><h3>1.8.0: Dec 12 1999</h3><ul>
 2494   <li>cleanup, especially memory wise</li>
 2495   <li>the parser should be more reliable, especially the HTML one, it should
 2496     not crash, whatever the input !</li>
 2497   <li>Integrated various patches, especially a speedup improvement for large
 2498     dataset from <a href="mailto:cnygard@bellatlantic.net">Carl Nygard</a>,
 2499     configure with --with-buffers to enable them.</li>
 2500   <li>attribute normalization, oops should have been added long ago !</li>
 2501   <li>attributes defaulted from DTDs should be available, xmlSetProp() now
 2502     does entities escaping by default.</li>
 2503 </ul><h3>1.7.4: Oct 25 1999</h3><ul>
 2504   <li>Lots of HTML improvement</li>
 2505   <li>Fixed some errors when saving both XML and HTML</li>
 2506   <li>More examples, the regression tests should now look clean</li>
 2507   <li>Fixed a bug with contiguous charref</li>
 2508 </ul><h3>1.7.3: Sep 29 1999</h3><ul>
 2509   <li>portability problems fixed</li>
 2510   <li>snprintf was used unconditionally, leading to link problems on system
 2511     were it's not available, fixed</li>
 2512 </ul><h3>1.7.1: Sep 24 1999</h3><ul>
 2513   <li>The basic type for strings manipulated by libxml has been renamed in
 2514     1.7.1 from <strong>CHAR</strong> to <strong>xmlChar</strong>. The reason
 2515     is that CHAR was conflicting with a predefined type on Windows. However
 2516     on non WIN32 environment, compatibility is provided by the way of  a
 2517     <strong>#define </strong>.</li>
 2518   <li>Changed another error : the use of a structure field called errno, and
 2519     leading to troubles on platforms where it's a macro</li>
 2520 </ul><h3>1.7.0: Sep 23 1999</h3><ul>
 2521   <li>Added the ability to fetch remote DTD or parsed entities, see the <a href="html/libxml-nanohttp.html">nanohttp</a> module.</li>
 2522   <li>Added an errno to report errors by another mean than a simple printf
 2523     like callback</li>
 2524   <li>Finished ID/IDREF support and checking when validation</li>
 2525   <li>Serious memory leaks fixed (there is now a <a href="html/libxml-xmlmemory.html">memory wrapper</a> module)</li>
 2526   <li>Improvement of <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath">XPath</a>
 2527     implementation</li>
 2528   <li>Added an HTML parser front-end</li>
