output, is now the main line public version, and it's at a new


Usage is up:  running at roughly 100 validations a day, with a high of

recent contributions and expand the regression test suite to reflect
the increase in breadth of usage.

The latest version has a number of bug fixes and improved compliance

Of the not-yet-implemented-by-XSV aspects of XML Schema (tabulation

covered first:

      <item>Simple type conformance, other than enumerations and max/min
            for numeric types</item>
     <item>Detailed enforcement of derivation by restriction</item>
     <item>Full XPath expressions for identity constraints</item>
     <item>Post-schema-validation infoset contributions</item>
