              -= W3C Markup Validator v0.7.0 Released =-   
	               http://validator.w3.org/


A new version of the W3C Markup Validation Service (a.k.a HTML
validator), the popular free service and tool checking the validity of
Web documents, was released today.


* Changes *

This new version is a performance and bugfix release. This version now
caches the templates used for the output of validation results, which
should make it faster and less resource-hungry than version 0.7.0. A
few bugs, mostly related to UI (notably the Direct Input interface) have
also been fixed.

See http://validator.w3.org/whatsnew.html#t2005-10-18 for more details.


* Using and Installing the Markup Validator *

The Markup Validator is available as a free service hosted by W3C at:
http://validator.w3.org/

It is also an Open Source/Free Software, available for download and
installation on a variety of systems and platforms, see:
http://validator.w3.org/source/ and http://validator.w3.org/docs/install.html


* Credits, Feedback and Participation *

There are many ways that every user of the validator can help in its
maintenance and development: sending feedback and bug reports,
participating on the user's mailing-list, dowloading the code and
submitting patches, and much more... For more instructions, visit:

Congratulations and thanks to the people who made this release possible,
notably Björn Höhrmann and Ville Skyttä for the code, and many others
who helped develop the tool, sent bug reports or participated in
discussion: http://validator.w3.org/about.html#credits


* What next? * 

In parallel to preparing this release, the team behind the Markup
Validator have also been working on a more modular (and faster!)
architecture. Anyone interested in participating in that development
should of course feel free to contact us, see the "participate" section
in http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html

Thank you,
olivier.
