and which other manpage to look into for inherited methods
- XML::LibXML::Namespace API fixed in order to achieve
an agreement between the docs and the implementation
- added no_network parser flag
- added support for exclusive canonicalization (
- make XInclude reflect parser flags
- documentation fixes

- fix getAttributeNode etc. w.r.t. #FIXED attributes (as well as some
cases with old buggy libxml2 versions)
- warn if runtime libxml2 is older than the one used at the compile time
- if compiled against libxml2 >= 2.6.27, new parse_html_* implementation is used
allowing encoding and other options to be passed to the parser

obey wildcards '*', getChildrenByLocalName was added.

- all sub-modules have the same version as XML::LibXML
- getElementsById corrected to getElementById and the old name kept
as an alias. Also re-implemented without XPath for improved
- DOM Level 3 method $attr->isId() added
- make {get,set,has}Attribute(Node)? methods work with full
attribute names rather than just localnames.
(Although DOM Level 3 is not very clear about the behavior of
these methods for an attributes with namespaces, it certainly
does not imply that getAttribute('foo') should return value of a
bar:foo, which was the old behavior.)

- added XML RelaxNG validation interface (XML::LibXML::RelaxNG)
- Michael K. Edwards' patch applied with some amendments from Petr Pajas:
* add debian build files (I added SKIP_SAX_INSTALL flag for
Makefile.PL and changed the patch so that it doesn't disable
sax parser registration completely by default, and rather made
debian build use this flag)
* general cleanup (use SV_nolen, etc.)
* SAX parsers cleanup
* general error reporting code cleanup/rewrite, try preventing
possible memory leaks
* recover(1) now triggers warnings (disable with $SIG{__WARN__}=sub {})
(fixes bug 1968, too)
* slighlty more strict parse_string behavior (now same as when
parsing fh, etc): e.g. parse_string("<foo:bar>"), i.e prefix without
NS declaration, raises error unless recover(1) is used
* documentation fixes/updates
* slightly updated test set to reflect the new slightly more strict
