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 direct link: http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/15915/libxml... This release is the first to contain many of the new 0.4 features, including: * Laurent Sansonetti's XML::Reader interface A fast XML parser featuring a C#-XmlTextReader-like stream interface. * 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.
