  <release version='&ParserName; 2.12.1'>
   <desc>
    <p>
      This release is a bug fix release. It fixes few bugs which were present in Xerces-J 2.12.0 
      and also includes a few other minor enhancements.      
    </p>
   </desc>
   <changes>                
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   Implemented few fixes for XML Schema identity constraints, within Xerces's XML Schema 1.0 and 1.1
      	   validators. 
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Sandy Gao, Mukul Gandhi'/>
     </fix>
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   When XML Schema 1.1 validations are done, where xs:assert are contained within xs:override, the XPath
      	   expressions within xs:assert can't see XML namespace bindings specified at certain locations in schema
      	   documents. This release fixes this.
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Mukul Gandhi, Patrick Gratz'/>
     </fix>
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   When XML Schema 1.1 validations are done, when the schema document is specified via xsi:schemaLocation 
      	   attribute in the XML document, when full XPath 2.0 is used with CTA, for certain use cases
      	   validation was not occurring correctly. This release fixes this.
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Mukul Gandhi, Yitzhak Khabinsky'/>
     </fix>
     <fix>
       <note>
      	  For certain cases, while doing XML Schema 1.1 xs:assert validations, error messages appeared
      	  like following 'FOAR0001 - Division by zero'. Modified such error messages, to now contain
      	  the character ':' instead of '-' (since, the character '-' can be confused with a negation symbol).	
       </note>
       <submitter name='Mukul Gandhi'/>
     </fix>           
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   The 'XML Schema 1.1 structures' REC in the section, "3.2.3 Constraints on XML Representations of 
      	   Attribute Declarations (Schema Representation Constraint: Attribute Declaration 
      	   Representation)" mentions, '5 If fixed and use are both present, use must not have the actual value 
      	   prohibited'. This functionality is newly introduced in XML Schema 1.1. Fixed a runtime validation issue 
      	   for this XSD clause, when XSD 1.1 implementation is invoked in XSD 1.0 mode.
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Mukul Gandhi'/>
     </fix>     
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   Xerces-J was previously not building from sources when Java 9+ was used. This release fixes this.
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Mukul Gandhi, Michael Glavassevich, Thomas Pasch'/>
     </fix>     
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   XML Schema 1.1 has introduced the attribute 'ref' on xs:key, xs:unique and xs:keyref. When certain such
      	   schema documents were processed by Xerces-J's XSD 1.1 implementation in XSD 1.0 mode, a 
      	   java.lang.NullPointerException was displayed to the user when the schema document is processed with Xerces 
      	   sample jaxp.SourceValidator. This release fixes this.
     	</note>
     	<submitter name='Michael Glavassevich, Mukul Gandhi'/>
     </fix>
     <fix>
        <note>
      	   Fixed minor bugs and made various improvements.

     	<submitter name='Michael Glavassevich, Mukul Gandhi, Octavian Nadolu'/>
     </fix>
     <add>
        <note>
           Added many new tests to the regression since the previous Xerces release, for Xerces's
           XML Schema 1.0 and 1.1 implementations.

      		Fixed possible security issue: an implementation of the NamedNodeMapImpl class in the JAXP component did not 
      		limit the amount of memory allocated when creating object instance from a serialized form. A specially-crafted 
      		input could cause a java application to use an excessive amount of memory when deserialized.

    <p>This release provides a complete implementation of the parser related 
    portions of JAXP 1.3 and also brings Xerces into compliance with SAX 2.0.2,
    the DOM Level 3 Core and Load/Save W3C Recommendations, the XML Inclusions
    (XInclude) Version 1.0 W3C Recommendation and the XML Schema 1.0 Structures 
    and Datatypes Second Edition W3C Recommendations.</p>
    <p>&ParserName; 2.7.0 incorporates two minor changes to the Xerces Native Interface
    (documented below). A new package <code>org.apache.xerces.xs.datatypes</code> has
    been added to Xerces' XML Schema API that provides a full schema datatype to 
    object mapping. In addition, in this release we introduced many new parser
    features, improved parser performance in several areas and fixed many bugs.

  <release version="&ParserName; 2.3.0">
    <desc>
        With this release, the Xerces-J developers are declaring the Xerces
        Native Interface (XNI) core and parsers packages
        to be gold.  
        This release also brings Xerces into compliance with the most recent
        work of the W3C DOM working group on DOM level 3 Core
        and Load/Save, and introduces many fixes to bring Xerces's behaviour 
        into line with XML Schema errata.  Support for the
        parsing of documents written according to the XML 1.1 candidate recommendation 
        has also been completed, except that no option for verifying that documents
        are normalized has yet been implemented.
        Finally, Xerces now provides means by which applications can force
        the parser to reject certain kinds of documents the processing of which could
        result in a denial-of-service attack.

      In this release, numerous bugs have been fixed.  Only one minor change in the Xerces

          Reorganized the code in Xerces DOM implementation to expose DOM Level 3
          functionality via org.w3c.dom package.
          Added several build targets for building customized xerces jar files that include
          DOM Level 3 Core and Load/Save interfaces and 
          implementation of those interfaces: jars-dom3, apijar-dom3, sampjar-dom3.

            Moved from the org.xml.sax.helpers.AttributesImpl shipped with SAX 2.0 to that
            shipping in 2.0.1.  This solves problems encountered with creating empty

      <update>
	<note>
	  Improved handling of settings in parser classes making it easier
	  to re-use the parsers with other parser configurations. Previously,
	  the parser instances assumed that all configurations supported
	  various settings (i.e. the parser would set default values without 
	  first adding the recognized features and property identifiers to
	  the parser configuration).

        <note>Performance fixes:  replaced code that increases array sizes by catching ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions
            with code that checks the sizes of the relevant arrays.  Also streamlined
            several method calls in the DTD Grammar classes to account for the 
            fact that scope is not relevant for this type of grammar.  Finally,
            improved algorithm for recognizing entities and notations.

	  Parser now reads external entities one chunk at a time,

      This is the first production-quality release of the Xerces2 Java
      XML parser.  We are confident that it also marks the stabilization
      of the XNI API, although changes in XNI are still possible.  As
      well as these XNI improvements and extensions, a host of bugs
      and limitations that existed in Xerces 2.0.0beta4 have been fixed in 
      this release.
