Nokogiri 1.4.5 Released

Nokogiri 1.4.5 (“Lolwut Edition”), has been released! It’s been six
months
since
the last exciting drop of Nokogiri. We’ve got a ton of bugfixes that you
all
have been waiting desperately for.

Please note, particularly the peeps in JRubyland, that this is scheduled
to
be
the last point-release on the 1.4 branch. As we announced in June 2010,
this
means we’re discontinuing support for the FFI+LibXML codebase. It’ll be
Java
all
the way down starting in 1.5.

NOKOGIRI

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.
