Jaxen 2 underway

Anyone depending on or interested in the Jaxen library may want to
poke their heads into the repo at:


Work on Jaxen 2 has commenced. The primary focus of this release is
cleaning up the massive dependency cycle hell that Jaxen 1.x created
throughout the Java ecosystem. To that end, the core project will now
only include a navigator for DOM. Since DOM is already bundled with
the JDK, this doesn't cause conflicts or bloat.

The navigators for third party object models will be split out into
separate artifacts:


(Artifact IDs are not final.)

Thus it will now be possible to depend on jaxen-core (jaxen:jaxen)
without pulling in any other dependencies at all. If you need one of
the other navigators, you can add it alone without pulling every XML
parsing library into your dependency tree.

A few deprecated classes have been removed. Otherwise at a Java level,
Jaxen 2 is API and behavior compatible with older Jaxen code.

There will likely be some problems where multiple different versions
of jaxen:jaxen appear at different places in the dependency tree.
These should be able to be resolved by adding the newer artifacts as
dependencies of the root project.

Particular concerns or bugs can be filed as issues in the Github issue
tracker. Otherwise please discuss here.
