Ok-Well, the introduction of this kind of dependency (GLIB) is HUGE for those of us which must somehow get this to work on various cross-platform builds. It would be helpful if this feature were provided with a much liter, flexible solution. Glib is a poor choice IMHO.

Why would you do that? What if I don't want to use Glib? This makes your library harder to use.

Re: Mistakes, mistakes...
Try 'xml-config --version' to see if it's finding the right copy of libxml. It is possible that ./configure is finding a previously installed version of libxml, or that your installation's configuration checker script is called 'xml2-config', as some people have reported. If this is the case, create a symlink to xml2-config from xml-config so that ./configure can find it. Expect detection of this in the next version of libxml++.

Re: Mistakes, mistakes...
Hi,
I am having trouble getting the core libxml library to be recognized. I have installed (via a tarball) libxml2-2.3.2, yet the .configure program still says:
checking for libxml version >= 2.0.0... no
I have got the latest xmls from gnome.org as well, as well as helix etc. Am I missing something?

Mistakes, mistakes...
Since I don't have access to my home machine on which I do development work until Friday or Saturday, I have to just warn people and hope that they'll wait until then for a fixed, downloadable version.

Some problems with compilation have been reported to me, and some typecasting problems with various string representations have apparently caused some people troubles. Also, 'make dist' apparently forgot to include libxml++.m4 with the distribution file, so 'make install' won't work very well, either.

I wish you the best of luck, and hope that everyone keeps the comments pouring in. Expect a fixed version sometime this coming weekend. I hope that somebody out there finds this as useful as I already have.
