Re: [xml] Availability of libxm2-2.9.0 release candidate 1

I've had a quick try at building 2.9.0 on a 32-bit Windows system using MS Visual Studio 2010 from the 
command line. There was a minor problem in that none of the Win32 Makefiles seem to have been updated to 
include the recent addition of the buf.c module. I think it needs to be added to: Makefile, Makefile.bcb, 
Makefile.msvc, Makefile.mingw VC10\libxml2.vcproj, and wince\libxml2.vcp (there are certainly lots of ways to 
do things on Windows...).

With buf.obj added to the dependencies, libxml2 built without problems. Trying "runsuite" resulted in 10 
error (all in the James Clark suite - problems with parsing very large decimal values and '+1'). Invoking 
"runtest" listed 10 errors as well - although all involved test/ebcdic_566012.xml. This is probably the 
result of my building with a rather old version of libiconv (1.9.1).

I hope to try the tests with the Borland compiler as well, though I haven't actually used that for some time.

|   Following the first rc0 snapshot from last week and after 
| much cleanup
| and testing, the first release candidate for the next libxml2 
| release is
| available at the usual place:
| along with RPMs generated on Fedora 17 for those interested.
|   This version should implement ABI compatibility with 
| previous libxml2
| release properly, i.e. it should be usable as a drop in replacement on
| existing system, which is why I will start to push it around for more
| testing. If you have a chance to try this, feedback would be 
| very welcome :-)
|   As stated previously, I target a final release beginning of 
| September,
| and will probably make an rc2 release around a week from now fixing
| what have been reported in the meantime.
|   So please give it a try :-), thanks !
