Nokogiri 1.3.2 Released

nokogiri version 1.3.2 has been released!

Nokogiri (鋸) is an HTML, XML, SAX, and Reader parser. Among Nokogiri’s
many features is the ability to search documents via XPath or CSS3
selectors.

XML is like violence - if it doesn’t solve your problems, you are not
using
enough of it.
