I've released XOM 1.2.5, my free-as-in-speech (LGPL) dual streaming/tree-based API for processing XML with Java. 1.2.5 is a very minor release. The only visible change is that Builder.build((Reader) null) now throws a NullPointerException instead of a confusing MalformedURLException. I've also added support for Maven 2, and hope to get the packages uploaded to the central repository in a week or two.
In other news, I have had very little time to work on this site lately. In order to have any time to work on other projects including XOM and Jaxen, I've had to let this site slide. I expect to have more news about that soon.
Also, speaking of Jaxen, I noticed that the website has been a little out of date for a while now because I neglected to update the releases page when 1.1.2 was released in 2008. Consequently, a lot of folks have been missing out on the latest bug fixes and optimizations. If you're still using Jaxen 1.1.1 or earlier, please upgrade when you get a minute. Also, note that the official site is http://jaxen.codehaus.org/. jaxen.org is a domain name spammer. I'm not sure who let that one slide, but we'll have to see about grabbing it back one of these days.
