Java News from Tuesday, July 18, 2006

I've posted the first beta of XOM 1.2, my free-as-in-speech (LGPL) library for processing XML with Java. Compared to the 1.0-->1.1 transition, this is a very minor upgrade. There are just a couple of additional methods, a few bug fixes, and maybe a small optimization or two. All code written to the 1.1 or 1.0 APIs should run unchanged with 1.2. Possibly the biggest change is to the build process. Jaxen is now bundled rather than being loaded directly from CVS. If you download the source build, please let me know how the build goes for you. Thanks.

Update: I accidentally omitted one key file from the source distribution. I've uploaded fixed archives.
