Implementors have requested more time to test SAX 1.0 before it
becomes final.

There will be no additional changes other than bug fixes; however,
since bugs have required several minor changes already, and since the
final, official, righteous SAX 1.0 version might still be a week or
more away, in the interest of openness I have uploaded SAX 1.0gamma (I
don't like "beta2") to the following (new) URL:


(The final SAX 1.0 will be mirrored at
http://www.microstar.com/XML/SAX/ as well).

The latest JavaDoc is also available online.  SAX is changing very
little now, and it is probably safe to start basing implementations on
it, as long as you're ready for a little tweaking.  Here are the (very
minor) changes since 1.0beta:

Interface Changes

- bug fix: changed parameter to Parser.setLocale() to java.util.Locale
  (a single string is insufficient)

- bug fix: added default constructor to InputSource, to simplify

- bug fix: removed "extends IOException" from InputSource (it was
  retained accidentally from an earlier revision)

- bug fix: in the ParserFactory helper class, used
  "org.xml.sax.parser" instead of "sax.parser" for the system property

Documentation Changes

- doc fix: clarify that attributes in AttributeList are zero-indexed

- doc fix: clarify that Parser objects are non-re-entrant but reusable

- doc fix: clarify that the parser should never modify the InputSource
  provided by the application

- doc fix: clarify that the parser should not deliver the endDocument
  event until EOF or a non-recoverable error

- moved sample drivers to com.megginson.sax package

All the best,
