Re: [xml] When will you support xml version 1.1?

Better Unicode support is definitely not a minor thing.

But that itself is not an unalloyed characteristic of XML 1.1. XML 1.1 has better Unicode support in some respects (no C1 controls allowed, Cambodian and Ethiopic support) but has decidedly worse Unicode support in other respects (C0 controls allowed in PCDATA if they're escaped, undefined characters and musical symbols allowed in element names).

Unless you're working in Cambidian, Burmese, Amharic, or a few other languages, the disadvantages strongly outweigh the advantages, even considering Unicode alone.
