   ANN: Piccolo 1.04 released

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi folks,

I'm having trouble with Sourceforge mailing lists, so I figured I'd just
post this here.

Iím happy to announce the release (at last) of version 1.04 of the Piccolo
XML parser for Java. This is a maintenance release but contains a few
noteworthy changes:

    * Iím changing the Piccolo license over to the Apache License 2.0, so
that it may be used by XMLBeans and other Apache projects

    * Many thanks to Eric Vasilik and Cezar Andrei from BEA for these
-          relicensing from LGPL to Apache License Version 2.0
-          line info for start elements on the "<".
-          added getVersion and getEncoding to the parser
-          bug fixing for attribute localname
-          added more encodings to the charsetTable

    * Benchmarks have been updated and now test the latest parser versions

    * All reported bugs should now be fixed

    * Performance has been improved by up to 10% over previous versions

    * Piccolo now attempts to avoid blocking I/O calls, so that it can
read from always-open network streams

    * Internal improvements; build scripts have been enhanced to include
automated testing

As always, you can download Piccolo and obtain more information at
