Release Notes: Several encodings were added. Documentation was improved. Better error checking is done in case expat is missing.
Release Notes: Bugixes for Carp::Heavy.
Release Notes: A patch to expat to handle declarations, element declation handlers now receive an object containg parsed representation of model, doctype handler called prior to processing DTD, new DoctypeFin and ExternEntFin handlers, basename now set by parsefile method and default external entity handlers, generated strings marked as UTF-8 in Perl 5.6, and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: Several bug fixes, added the skip_until method to XML::Parser::Expat (suspends handlers until the given element index is reached), XML::Parser::ExpatNB now can perform the original_string and position_in_context methods, there's a new utility in the samples directory which transforms an XML document into Canonical XML, there's a fix for the "Modification of a read-only value" bug that users of perl 5.004 were encountering, incompatibility change to the xml_escape method of Expat (it no longer transforms the '>' character by default), fixed a bug where the doctype handler wasn't being called when the ParseParamEnt option was set and it's now using Version 19990728 of expat, with local patches.
Release Notes: Bug fixes for declaration callbacks.
Release Notes: Fixed a SEGV-causing bug, now using Version 1990709 of the expat library, added an additional external entity handler, lwp_ext_ent_handler, that deals with general URIs. It is installed instead of the "file only" handler if the LWP package is installed.
Release Notes: External DTD parsing now takes place when the new ParseParamEnt option is set to a true value. The setHandlers methods (of both XML::Parser and XML::Parser::Expat) now return the former settings of the changed handlers with a list of keyword, handler pairs.
Release Notes: Core dump fixed that occured with a small file with a comment that wasn't properly closed, fixed in expat by updating positionPtr properly in final call of XML_Parse, made more fixes to Expat.xs position calculation, fixed a memory growth problem with large documents, added a non-blocking parse mechanism, made some performance tweaks and tried to clarify Tree style structure in Parser pod.
