New CVS version
Mon Jul 15 20:14:51 2002
I've just committed a new version to CVS. It features improved grammar (now you may e.g. ommit semicollons after statement blocks). Moreover, I've done some optimizations so that the new grammar is parsed significantly faster by RecDescent than the old one. Please test it and report bugs so that we may have a new release soon.

New features in CVS version
Fri May 31 16:20:55 2002
  • allows saving expanded XInclude sections back to the original files and creating new XInclude sections (see help save_xinclude).
  • save creates backups now, unless nobackups is called
  • XML::GDOME may now be used instead of XML::LibXML (run xsh -g). XML::GDOME backend is still incomplete and lacks many features.
  • several bug-fixes
  • XML-LibXML version 1.50 or soon available 1.51 highly recommended
