I am pleased to announce the availability of Apache Xerces-C++ 3.1.0.
Xerces-C++ is an open-source, validating XML parser written in a
portable subset of C++. It provides DOM (level 1, 2, and 3), SAX,
and SAX2 APIs and supports validation of XML documents against DTD
and XML Schema.

This version includes a number of new features, performance improvements 
and a large number of bug fixes, especially in the XML Schema spec 
conformance area, including:

 * Support for handling multiple XML Schema import declarations with 
   the same target namespace.

 * Support for configuration of the parser buffer low water mark.

 * DOMLSParser::parseWithContext implementation.

 * Improved XML Schema performance and reduced memory footprint when 
   validating with large maxOccurs values. If available, the SSE2 
   instructions are used to further speedup this case.

 * Improved scalability of the XML Schema identity checking (key, 
   keyref, and unique).

 * More robust external library detection (libcurl and ICU).

 * Compilation of the ICU message loader resources no longer depends 
   on the ICU implementation details.

For a more detailed list of changes see the official announcement:


For more information on some of the new features see this blog post:


This release has been tested on all major platforms and comes with 
precompiled libraries (total 16) for various CPU architectures, 
operating systems, and C++ compilers. For most platforms 32-bit and 
64-bit variants are provided.

More information on Xerces-C++, including documentation and build
instructions, is available from the project's website:
