Nokogiri 1.6.2 Released

nokogiri version 1.6.2 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.

==== Security Note

A set of security and bugfix patches have been backported from the
libxml2
and libxslt repositories onto the version of 2.8.0 packaged with
Nokogiri,
including these notable security fixes:

https://git.gnome.org/browse/libxml2/commit/?id=4629ee02ac649c27f9c0cf98ba017c6b5526070f

It is recommended that you upgrade from 1.6.x to this version as soon as
possible.

==== Compatibility Note

Now requires libxml >= 2.6.21 (was previously >= 2.6.17).

==== Features

  • Add cross building of fat binary gems for 64-Bit Windows (x64-mingw32)
    and add support for native builds on Windows. #864, #989, #1072
  • (MRI) Alias CP932 to Windows-31J if iconv does not support
    Windows-31J.
  • (MRI) Nokogiri now links packaged libraries statically. To disable
    static
    linking, pass --disable-static to extconf.rb. #923
  • (MRI) Fix a library path (LIBPATH) precedence problem caused by CRuby
    bug
    #9760.
  • (MRI) Nokogiri automatically deletes directories of packaged libraries
    only used during build. To keep them for debugging purposes, pass
    –disable-clean to extconf.rb. #952
  • (MRI) Nokogiri now builds libxml2 properly with iconv support on
    platforms where libiconv is installed outside the system default
    directories, such as FreeBSD.
  • Add support for an-b in nth selectors. #886 (Thanks, Magnus Bergmark!)
  • Add support for bare and multiple :not() functions in selectors. #887
    (Thanks, Magnus Bergmark!)
  • (MRI) Add an extconf.rb option --use-system-libraries, alternative to
    setting the environment variable NOKOGIRI_USE_SYSTEM_LIBRARIES.
  • (MRI) Update packaged libraries: libxslt to 1.1.28, zlib to 1.2.8, and
    libiconv to 1.14, respectively.
  • Nokogiri::HTML::Document#title= and #meta_encoding= now always add an
    element if not present, trying hard to find the best place to put it.
  • Nokogiri::XML::DTD#html_dtd? and #html5_dtd? are added.
  • Nokogiri::XML::Node#prepend_child is added. #664
  • Nokogiri::XML::SAX::ParserContext#recovery is added. #453
  • Fix documentation for XML::Node#namespace. #803 #802 (Thanks, Hoylen
    Sue)
  • Allow Nokogiri::XML::Node#parse from unparented non-element nodes.
    #407

==== Bugfixes

  • Ensure :only-child pseudo class works within :not pseudo class. #858
    (Thanks, Yamagishi Kazutoshi!)
  • Don’t call pkg_config when using bundled libraries in extconf.rb #931
    (Thanks, Shota F.!)
  • Nokogiri.parse() does not mistake a non-HTML document like a RSS
    document
    as HTML document. #932 (Thanks, Yamagishi Kazutoshi!)
  • (MRI) Perform a node type check before adding a child node to another.
    Previously adding a text node to another as a child could cause a SEGV.
    #1092
  • (JRuby) XSD validation crashes in Java version. #373
  • (JRuby) Document already has a root node error while using Builder.
    #646
  • (JRuby) c14n tests are all passing on JRuby. #226
  • Parsing empty documents raise SyntaxError in strict mode. #1005
  • (JRuby) Make xpath faster by caching the xpath context. #741
  • (JRuby) XML SAX push parser leaks memory on JRuby, but not on MRI.
    #998
  • (JRuby) Inconsistent behavior aliasing the default namespace. #940
  • (JRuby) Inconsistent behavior between parsing and adding namespaces.
    #943
  • (JRuby) Xpath returns inconsistent result set on cloned document with
    namespaces and attributes. #1034
  • (JRuby) Java-Implementation forgets element namespaces #902
  • (JRuby) JRuby-Nokogiri does not recognise attributes inside namespaces
    #1081
  • (JRuby) JRuby-Nokogiri has different comment node name #1080
  • (JRuby) JAXPExtensionsProvider / Java 7 / Secure Processing #1070
