i've run into multiple libxml-ruby bugs which are documented at

there's also a huge list of unresolved issues at

this fork switches to nokogiri:


Iibxml-ruby is segfaulting under ruby 1.9.2. I've run some tests and believe it has to do with the garbage collector and the issue where you need to use 'nodes = nil' as is done in HappyMapper:

However, without a GC.start call after clearing the nodes, the segfault eventually still happens.

Hey guys,

We just pushed an updated libxml-ruby version that hopefully fixes these various issues. Can HappyMapper upgrade to the latest version?


just submitted pull request with latest libxml reference

Great - thanks for pushing this along Eric.

Note current release is 2.0.2, I'll be pushing a 2.0.3 release in the next week with some minor fixes.

Thanks - Charlie


Release 0.4 fixe this


Closing due to staleness and the fact that the project is currently not being maintained.
