A new expat test release is available from

This is not a production release.  The current production release is
still 1.0.1 which is available at

New features are the following:

You can now compile with -DXML_MIN_SIZE to get a smaller (but slower)
parser (in particular this avoids multiple copies of the tokenizer).
Under Visual C++ 6.0 the xmlparse - Win32 MinSize target builds a
minimally-sized xmlparse.dll. Note that unlike with the Release target
this doesn't depend on xmltok.dll; it links in the
xmltok functionality that it needs.

XML_SetCdataSectionHandler allows the application to be informed of the
start and end of CDATA sections. (Data within a CDATA section
is always passed using the handler set with
XML_SetCharacterDataHandler.) If there's a default handler but no CDATA
section handler, the default handler will be called with the <![CDATA[
and ]>.

The code for pushing files through the parser has been separated out
into xmlwf/xmlfile.[ch].

The XMLNS define has become XML_NS.
