Boris Kolpackov-2

I am pleased to announce the release of Xerces-C++ 2.8.0. This
version is interface-compatible with Xerces-C++ 2.7.0 and contains
a large number of bug fixes as well as improvements to the build
system. For the compete list of changes see:


For information on migrating from 2.7.0 to 2.8.0 see:

The source code archives and pre-compiled libraries are available
from the download page:


Note that it takes up to 24 hours for the release to propagate
to all the mirrors so use the master distribution directory if
the files are not yet available on your favorite mirror. It is
important that you verify the integrity of the files you download
using either the PGP signatures or MD5 checksums as described on
the download page.

With this release we have also moved the website from
xml.apache.org/xerces-c/ to xerces.apache.org/xerces-c/ and the
master distribution directory from www.apache.org/dist/xml/xerces-c/
to www.apache.org/dist/xerces/c/ . We believe we have established
redirects in all the necessary places but if you notice any problems
with the website, please report them.

Finally I would like to thank Gareth Reakes, Alberto Massari, David
Cargill as well as everybody who tested the release candidate and
provided fixes.
