TouchXML is a lightweight replacement for Cocoa's NSXML* cluster of classes. It is based on the commonly available Open Source libxml2 library.

Automatic Reference Counting (ARC)
The "master" branch of TouchJSON does NOT use Automatic Reference Counting (ARC).
There is a branch that does use ARC - this is found at "features/ARC".
Most new development occurs on the ARC branch. At some point the non-ARC branch will put into maintenance mode and the ARC branch will become the primary branch.
The goal is to create a lightweight NSXML* style XML api that can used in environments without NSXML* (e.g. iPhone).
XML read only. The aim is to make a lite API for reading XML. I'm assuming most applications will only need to read XML and wont need to generate it (AJAX applications tend to receive XML data but transmit data via URL or HTTP form-encoding). Please let me know if your application needs XML write support.
Lightweight. Rarely used NSXML* functionality should not be implemented.
