AW: [xml] Compatibility between libxml 2.3.5 and libxml 2.5.6

I am currently using libxml 2.3.5 in my applications and now 
I want to change to a newer version, perhaps 2.5.6.
Some applications running on the same system is already 
compiled for libxml 2.3.5 and I don't want to recompile those 
So my question is this; Is it possible to run applications 
compiled for libxml 2.3.5 in a system with libxml 2.5.6 installed?
The shared library are in both cases called so I 
guess it will run, but are those two versions really 
compatible (i.e. does every function in libxml 2.3.5 still 
exist in libxml 2.5.6)?

I hope I can get an answer to this question.

I woult test this instead of taking someone's answer for granted, but yes,
you should be able to run 2.5.6 without difficulties.
