May 2011 Report

Xerces-J

We are fortunate again to have students for GSoC. Thiwanka Somasiri and Ishara Karunarathna will be participating in GSoC this year to implement xml:id support and some remaining features for DOM Level 3 Load and Save (asynchronous LSParser / parseWithContext()).

The committers continue to work on improving the schema validator's conformance to the XML Schema 1.1 specification.

Mailing list traffic has been moderate; about 200+ posts on the j-dev and j-users lists since the beginning of February.

No new releases this quarter.

Xerces-C

A defect was fixed in the 2.x and 3.x streams for a stack overflow which could occur in DTD processing. Development on the project has otherwise been quiet.

Mailing list traffic has been moderate; about 100+ posts on the c-dev and c-users lists since the beginning of February.

No new releases this quarter.

Xerces-P

There was no development activity over the reporting period. One question was asked on the p-dev mailing list that got answered by Jason, so apparently he's still lurking around.

XML Commons

We are continuing to migrate XML Commons over to xerces.apache.org. The download area has been moved from http://www.apache.org/dist/xml/commons to http://www.apache.org/dist/xerces/xml-commons. The website and SVN location are the only remaining items to be moved over from the XML project.

No development activity to report.

Apache Project Branding Requirements

Trademark attributions have been added to the footer of pages on the TLP website. Thanks to the Apache Forrest developers for making this easier to do with their 0.9 release. There's still some work left to do on the TLP website, including adding TM to the project logo.
