Libxml-Ruby 0.4.0pre01 is now available from the Libxml-Ruby project on
rubyforge (http://rubyforge.org). This is a developmental source-only
snapshot taken from the current 0.4 development effort, and is intended
for developer evaluation and testing only. It can be downloaded via this
This release is the first to contain many of the new 0.4 features,
* Laurent S.'s XML::Reader interface A fast XML parser featuring a C#-XmlTextReader-like stream
* New XML::HTMLParser interface A non-verifying HTML 4.0 parser with API compatible with the XML parser ones. Should be able to parse "real world" HTML, even if severely broken from a specification point of view. * Reimplemented SAX parser A new API for the existing SAX parser that drastically improves performance.
We’re keen to receive bug reports for this release, especially since
there’s a bug-day planned in the not-too distant future ;).
Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes for the new year.
