Java News from Saturday, June 9, 2007

I've posted the second 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. This beta upgrades jaxen to 1.1.1.

Subversion 1.4.4, an open source version control system designed to replace CVS, has been released. 1.4.4 is a bug fix release.
