Re: [xml] Release candidate 1 of libxml2 2.8.0

Daniel Veillard, 15.05.2012 14:48:
  I finally managed to go though all the patches which accumulated in
Gnome bugzilla and do the various necessary cleanups to try to get a
release. There is however *many* changes, especially on the portability
side which I just can't test myself (including many changes on various
Windows toolchains). So I just made a release candidate of 2.8.0

look for libxml2-2.8.0-rc1.tar.gz, there is also rpms generated on my
Fedora 16 box for those interested.
The code seems to work okay, I have been running with the changes as
I added them and my system didn't blew up, it passes valgrind, there
doesn't seems to be leaks at least on the main paths, so I think it's
time for more general testing.
 Please give it a try, I will make other rc release if needed, and
will try to shoot for a final 2.8.0 release a week from now ! I know a
number of people waited for an official release, please help me finish
by testing it and report problems if you find some :-)

Didn't do any extensive testing, but it builds and tests fine for me with lxml.

  thanks in advance,

Thanks Daniel!
