* GH #21, #32, #33, #36: Fix for reported segfaults
= 0.8.3
=== 3 November, 2010
* GH#8: Nil-check before downcasing attribute key
* GH#25: Proper ruby 1.9 encoding support
* GH#28. Use integers instead of ?? on 1.9, which is just a string.
* including noscript to ElementInclusions , so that hpricot wont fail
when trying to parse a meta tag inside head section when noscript is
* latest changes from fast_xs mainline
* Fixes to get Hpricot running on Rubinius:
* Use free, not XFREE
* Remove RSTRUCT craziness, don't break Array#at
= 0.8.2
=== 5 November, 2009
* Bring JRuby support up to speed, including Java-based hpricot_css support
* Change JRuby fast_xs to have same escaping behavior as C fast_xs
* fix for issue #2, downcasing of html attributes inside the parser.
* solve issue #3 with bogus etags being preserved in `to_s` rather than just `to_original_html`.
* fix error when attempting to reparent cleared node. (issue #5)
* Hpricot::Attributes proxy object for using `ele.attributes[k] = v` directly.
however, it is preferred to use the jquery-like `elements.attr(k, v)`.
= 0.8.1
=== 3 April, 2009
* big problems on Ruby 1.8.6, use INT2FIX instead of INT2NUM. hashes were being cast to bignums.
* patch for 1.8.5 to define RARRAY_PTR. thanks, mike perham!
* inspecting empty document bug, courtesy of @TalLevAmi.
= 0.8
=== 31st March, 2009
* Saving memory and speed by using RStruct-based elements in the C extension.
* Bug in tag parsing, causing runaway <script> and <style> tags in HTML.
* Problem compiling under Ruby 1.9, due to our_rb_hash_lookup function meant for Ruby 1.8.
* CData was missing inner_text method.
= 0.7
=== 17th March, 2009
* Rewritten parser routine, much lighter on memory, quite a bit faster.
* Friendlier with Ruby 1.9.
* Fixes to nth-child and text() selectors.
= 0.6
=== 15th June, 2007
* Hpricot for JRuby -- nice work Ola Bini!
* Inline Markaby for Hpricot documents.
* XML tags and attributes are no longer downcased like HTML is.
* new syntax for grabbing everything between two elements using a Range in the search method: (doc/("font".."font/br")) or in nodes_at like so: (doc/"font").nodes_at("*".."br"). Only works with either a pair of siblings or a set of a parent and a sibling.
* Ignore self-closing endings on tags (such as form) which are containers. Treat them like open parent tags. Reported by Jonathan Nichols on the hpricot list.
* Escaping of attributes, yanked from Jim Weirich and Sam Ruby's work in Builder.
* Element#raw_attributes gives unescaped data. Element#attributes gives escaped.
* Added: Elements#attr, Elements#remove_attr, Elements#remove_class.
* Added: Traverse#preceding, Traverse#following, Traverse#previous, Traverse#next.

=== 31rd January, 2007
* support for a[text()="Click Me!"] and h3[text()*="space"] and the like.
* Hpricot.buffer_size accessor for increasing Hpricot's buffer if you're encountering huge ASP.NET viewstate attribs.
* some support for colons in tag names (not full namespace support yet.)
* Element.to_original_html will attempt to preserve the original HTML while merging your changes.
* Element.to_plain_text converts an element's contents to a simple text format.
* Element.inner_text removes all tags and returns text nodes concatenated into a single string.
* no @raw_string variable kept for comments, text, and cdata -- as it's redundant.
* xpath-style indices (//p/a[1]) but keep in mind that they aren't zero-based.
* node_position is the index among all sibling nodes, while position is the position among children of identical type.
* comment() and text() search criteria, like: //p/text(), which selects all text inside paragraph tags.
* every element has css_path and xpath methods which return respective absolute paths.
* more flexibility all around: in parsing attributes, tags, comments and cdata.

=== 11th August, 2006
* The :fixup_tags option will try to sort out the hierarchy so elements end up with the right parents.
* Elements such as *script* and *style* (identified as having CDATA contents) receive a single text node as their children now. Previously, Hpricot was parsing out tags found in scripts.
* Better scanning of partially quoted attributes (found by Brent Beardsly on
* Better scanning of unquoted attributes -- thanks to Aaron Patterson for the test cases!
* Some tags were being output in the empty tag style, although browsers hated that. FIXED!
* Added Elements#at for finding single elements.
* Added Elem::Trav#[] and Elem::Trav#[]= for reading and writing attributes.
= 0.3
=== 7th July, 2006
* Fixed negative string size error on empty tokens. (
* Allow the parser to accept just text nodes. (such as: <tt>Hpricot.parse('TEXT')</tt>)
* from JQuery to Hpricot::Elements: remove, empty, append, prepend, before, after, wrap, set,
html(...), to_html, to_s.
* on containers: to_html, replace_child, insert_before, insert_after, innerHTML=.
* Hpricot(...) is an alias for parse.
* open up all properties to setters, let people do as they may.
* use to_html for the full html of a node or set of elements.
* doctypes were messed.
= 0.2
=== 4th July, 2006
* Rewrote the HTree parser to be simpler, more adequate for the common man. Will add encoding back in later.
= 0.1
=== 3rd July, 2006
* For whatever reason, wrote this HTML parser in C.
I guess Ragel is addictive and I want to improve HTree.
