Software News   Software News : Expat 2.0.0 XML Parser Released
   posted by ssolie on 11-Jan-2006 23:55:14 (1613 reads)
From the Expat Home Page:
11 January 2006, Expat 2.0.0 released.

Release 2.0.0 of the Expat XML parser is the end point of the 1.95.X series of releases. The goal was to solidify and stabilize the implementation of the given API, to add desirable features as long as they fit with the API, and to keep the API backwards compatible if extensions were required. Changes include:


o Fixed headers for use from C++.
o XML_GetCurrentLineNumber() and XML_GetCurrentColumnNumber() now return unsigned integers.
o Added XML_LARGE_SIZE switch to enable 64-bit integers for byte indexes and line/column numbers.
o Added support for AmigaOS.
o Some mostly minor bug fixes. SF issues include: 1006708, 1021776, 1023646, 1114960, 1156398, 1221160, 1271642.

ssolie, you never DO stop coding, do ya?

Everyone else, this appears to be ported back into the main expat project, not 'just' a standalone build:

The news is more that AmigaOS has been mentioned on the front page of the Expat home page. Expat is already pretty much platform agnostic but I went just a little bit further and put my name down to maintain the Amiga-specific changes. The Expat team and I hammered out the details of the release over the Christmas break.

If anyone wants to contribute to the Amiga-specific version, please contact me and I'll see about including your changes in the Expat CVS.

I know there has been a trend to make Amiga-specific version numbers, for ports, but wouldn't it be better (or at least more future safe) to use the "real" version number... so for this one, it would be:
Major=2
Minor=0.0

This is just my opinion

I assume you are talking about the shared library (expat.library) versioning here.

I think it is best to treat the shared library version independently from whatever package you are using as a baseline. This is the same as suffixing a static link library with -1 or -ssolie1 or whatever. You need to version control it because your particular platform may have fixes ahead of the current baseline. Besides, the only people you are confusing are the developers because the users just know they are using expat.library 4.2 and they don't care if it is based on Expat 2.0.0 but the developers sure do. Developers should be smart enough to figure it out.

But not everyone wants to use the extra time to figure out
Would be nice if there the could be some sort of double versioning, where it would be possible to get the Amiga version number, and the baseline version... This is not get complicated

Unless mine eyes deceive me, the news article is still in third place...
