The Xerces-C team is pleased to announce that Xerces-C 2.7.0 is available.
Along with many bug fixes, the new features in this release are:
Feature to not generate XML Schema annotations. That is, not to add
them to the grammar. If you don't need annotations you may want to turn
on this feature to avoid memory bloat for XML Schemas that use
Option to skip regenerating the XML Schema annotations when
deserializing a grammar. If you don't need annotations you may want to
turn on this option to avoid memory bloat for XML Schemas that use
Feature to not perform default entity resolution. When the
entityResolver returns NULL, the parser does not try to resolve the
Feature to do schema-only validation even if there is a DTD.
The web site  has been updated earlier today and the release should be
available from all of the Apache mirrors within 24 hours; the list can be
accessed via the Xerces-C download page .
