There is a new SAX pre-release available through the following URL:

Thank you very much to everyone who has taken the time to download,
test, and comment on the previous pre-releases.

The zip files referenced on the page mentioned above include a road
map of the core SAX classes and interfaces, updated drivers for Lark
and MSXML, and well-commented demonstrations of parsing from a system
identifier, a byte stream, and a character stream.

The core changes from the 1998-04-18 pre-release are very small,
leading me to hope that SAX is stabilising in time for tomorrow
evening's deadline:

- added parse(String systemId) convenience method to Parser

- removed single-character read() method from CharacterStream,
  ReaderAdapter, and CharacterStreamAdapter

- removed single-byte read() method from ByteStream,
  InputStreamAdapter, and ByteStreamAdapter

I am not including JavaDoc documentation in the distribution, but it
is easy to generate if you are interested.

All the best,
