Release of a new set of XML/XSLT libraries

  I have released a new set of XML/XSLT libraries:
   libxml-1.8.12: this is a bugfix version of the libxml1 branch
                  needed for GNOME 1.x . It also includes a correct
                  XML parser backported from 2.3.x and an extra API
                  call xmlUseNewParser() to switch between both.
   libxml-2.3.8:  latest version of the XML library, also includes
                  HTML and now a DocBook SGML parser for easing the
                  SGML->XML doc transition. This version also support
                  validation of non-determinist content models.
   libxslt-0.9.0: The XSLT library, it requires libxml-2.3.8, it
                  is good enough to be deployed seriously, the
                  XPath implementation in libxml2 is also far more
                  robust and complete.
   More informations at:
   Downloads: and on the GNOME FTPs

Speed wise I have made clear progresses, testing with a non-trivial
example (the XML version of the XML specification on a 700Mzh box)
libxml2 consume 8MB/s using SAX, 3MB/s with DOM build and 1.5MB/s
for DOM + validation. The XSLT implementation is now as fast or
even faster than Microsoft implementation depending on the testcases.

Basically, libxml2/libxslt combo is ready to handle the GNOME projet
documentation formating needs, the KDE project is deploying it too.
