There is a new version of Microstar's Ælfred XML parser available,
incorporating some of the suggestions that have come up in recent
discussions on this list.  You can try out the new version online or
download it using the following URL:


Ælfred 1.0beta4 contains some major changes to the interface:

1. New callbacks

  void startExternalEntity (XmlParser p, URL systemId)
  void endExternalEntity (XmlParser p, URL systemId)
  void charData (XmlParser p, char ch[], int length)
  void ignorableWhitespace (XmlParser p, char ch[], int length)

2. Removed callbacks

  void data (XmlParser p, String data)

2. Modified callbacks

  void startDocument (XmlParser p)
  void attribute (XmlParser p, String aname, String value, boolean isSpecified)

Apologies in advance to those of you who have already integrated
Ælfred into your tools -- I hope that the changes won't cost you more
than 15 minutes or so of modification and testing.

The addition of ignorable whitespace is required by the XML spec
(though Ælfred is non-conforming for error-reporting, I want the
information that it provides to be correct).

All the best,
