XML News from Monday, July 27, 2009

Jason Hunter has released JDOM 1.1.1, a library for processing XML with Java using a tree metaphor. 1.1.1 is a bug fix release that fixes a nasty thread safety problem with namespaces, adds a new SAXBuilder flag for faster parsing, supports Unicode surrogate pairs, and is compatible with the Android Dalvik VM. It also upgrades Jaxen to the much improved version 1.1.1 so XPath evalaution should now be much more spec compliant. All users should upgrade.
