<release version='&ParserName; 2.9.0'>
<desc>
<p>
As of this release, Xerces and Xalan now share a common serialization codebase.
The DOM Level 3 serialization support which was in Xerces was migrated into
the Xalan serializer and Xerces' native serializer was deprecated. In this release
we also upgraded the xml-commons resolver to v1.2 (which provides support for OASIS
XML Catalogs v1.1), introduced a few minor features and fixed several bugs.

Migrated the DOM Level 3 serialization support onto a common serialization
codebase shared with Xalan and deprecated Xerces' native serializer.

Upgraded the xml-commons resolver to v1.2. This new version of
the resolver adds support for

<submitter name='Michael Glavassevich'/>
</add>
<add>
<note>
Created a new parser configuration which uses a memory sensitive
SymbolTable which can handle usage scenarios where the names in the
XML documents being parsed are mostly unique. The internalized
strings stored in this SymbolTable are softly reachable and may be
cleared by the garbage collector in response to memory demand.

<release version='&ParserName; 2.8.0'>
<desc>
<p>
This release introduces several new validation related features and provides enhancements
to the XML schema annotation support. All of the schema component interfaces in the XML Schema API
now have a getAnnotations() method which returns a list of XSAnnotations. This includes annotations
on particles and attribute uses which were previously "lost". In addition, in this release we
implemented support for pretty-printing in the LSSerializer, repaired the warn-on-undeclared-elemdef
feature which had been broken for several releases and fixed many other bugs.
</p>
</desc>
<changes>
<add>

Added a getAnnotations() method to each of the component interfaces in the XML Schema API
(including XSParticle and XSAttributeUse) and implemented the support for the new methods.

which instructs the schema validator to ignore xsi:type attributes until a global element declaration
has been found.
</note>
<submitter name='Peter McCracken'/>
</add>
<update>
<note>
Modified the JAXP Validation API implementation so that it propagates features set on the SchemaFactory
to the Schemas created from the factory and in turn ValidatorHandlers and Validators constructed from
those Schema objects (as clarified by JAXP 1.4).

<release version="&ParserName; 2.3.0">
<desc>
With this release, the Xerces-J developers are declaring the Xerces
Native Interface (XNI) core and parsers packages
to be gold.
This release also brings Xerces into compliance with the most recent
work of the W3C DOM working group on DOM level 3 Core
and Load/Save, and introduces many fixes to bring Xerces's behaviour
into line with XML Schema errata. Support for the
parsing of documents written according to the XML 1.1 candidate recommendation
has also been completed, except that no option for verifying that documents
are normalized has yet been implemented.
Finally, Xerces now provides means by which applications can force
the parser to reject certain kinds of documents the processing of which could
result in a denial-of-service attack.

Add XMLResourceIdentifier to startExternalSubset() method defined in

<note>
Added implementation for compareTreePosition method of DOM L3.
</note>
<submitter name='Lisa Martin'/>
</add>
<add>
<note>Added XMLGrammarLoader interface to the xni.grammars package; refactor DTD and
Schema validation code to create classes implementing this interface; created
a convenience class (XMLGrammarPreparser) that uses the new grammar loaders to permit grammar preparsing;
wrote a sample (xni.XMLGrammarBuilder) that demonstrates how all this works.
</note>
<submitter name="Neil Graham"/>
</add>
<add>
<note>
Reorganized the code in Xerces DOM implementation to expose DOM Level 3
functionality via org.w3c.dom package.
Added several build targets for building customized xerces jar files that include
DOM Level 3 Core and Load/Save interfaces and
implementation of those interfaces: jars-dom3, apijar-dom3, sampjar-dom3.
</note>
<submitter name='Arnaud Le Hors, Elena Litani'/>
</add>
<update>
<note>
Updated xni.DocumentTracer sample to print augmentations for events.
This makes it easier to debug configurations that augment the document's
infoset.
</note>
<submitter name='Andy Clark'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>
Removed dependence on SAX attribute interfaces from XMLAttributesImpl
utility class. The AbstractSAXParser already defines a SAX attribute
proxy class so that the parser and components can be properly layered.
</note>
<submitter name='Andy Clark'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>
Moved from the org.xml.sax.helpers.AttributesImpl shipped with SAX 2.0 to that
shipping in 2.0.1. This solves problems encountered with creating empty
attribute lists.
</note>
<submitter name="Neil Graham"/>
</update>
<update>
<note>
Improved handling of settings in parser classes making it easier
to re-use the parsers with other parser configurations. Previously,
the parser instances assumed that all configurations supported
various settings (i.e. the parser would set default values without
first adding the recognized features and property identifiers to
the parser configuration).
</note>
<submitter name='Andy Clark'/>
</update>
<fix>
<note>
Fixed bug in HTML DOM implementation that was causing xerces.dom
element nodes to be created instead of the appropriate HTML element
nodes.

<note>
Fixed bug to avoid null pointer exception in AbstractDOMParser when
locator information is not available from parser configuration.

<note>
Fixed bug in WrappedInput/OutputStream classes reported by Morten Bjørhus.
</note>

</fix>
<fix>
<note>The DTD validator failed to report
"undeclared element" error if an attribute was
declared for an undeclared element.</note>
<submitter name='Elena Litani'/>
</fix>
<fix>
<note>Performance fixes: replaced code that increases array sizes by catching ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions
with code that checks the sizes of the relevant arrays. Also streamlined
several method calls in the DTD Grammar classes to account for the
fact that scope is not relevant for this type of grammar. Finally,
improved algorithm for recognizing entities and notations.
</note>
<submitter name="Henry Zongaro, Neil Graham"/>
</fix>
<update>
<note>
Compress jars by default. We have not done so in the past,
and it will be useful to see if this proves problematic or
beneficial.
</note>
<submitter name="Neil Graham"/>
</update>
<add>
<note>
Added several build targets for building customized xercesImpl
jarfiles. Now we can build a DTD-only version, and a DTD-only
version also excluding support for the HTML/WML DOM.
</note>
<submitter name="Neil Graham"/>
</add>
<fix>
<note>
Parser now reads external entities one chunk at a time,
rather than a character at a time;
this increases performance dramatically in certain circumstances.
This fix also allows a number of EBCDIC encodings to work which did
not work previously.
</note>
<submitter name="Neil Graham, Henry Zongaro"/>
</fix>
<update>
<note>Performance enhancement: implemented DOM node and
declaration pools that reduce number of objects created
during building of XML Schema grammars.
</note>
<submitter name='Elena Litani'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>Improved performance for non-deferred DOM: reduced
number of concatenations for characters (bug #5602)
</note>
<submitter name='Elena Litani'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>According to the namespace spec errata, namespace declaration
attributes should be bound to a special namespace; and errors should
be reported on illegal bindings of "xmlns" and "xml" prefixes and
their namespaces.
</note>
<submitter name='Sandy Gao'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>Refined schema error messages: provide more descriptive error
messages for simple type validation errors; avoid cascading errors
when a grammar for a given namespace is not found, or when components
from a certain namespace can't be accessed from a given schema
document.
</note>
<submitter name='Sandy Gao'/>
</update>
<update>
<note>Changed the lexical representation of gMonth from "--MM--" to "--MM".
</note>
<submitter name='Sandy Gao'/>

<note>Decimal point shouldn't be allowed in integer-derived types;
"fractionDigits" and "totalDigits" should be calculated on the value space.

<note>Fixed several DOM bugs. Xerces now passes
W3C DOM Level 1 Core test suite.
