I am pleased to announce a new, stable, release of HaXml. (Actually,
1.20 has been available for some time, but I am just getting round to
the announcement, and a fresh bugfix means a version bump to 1.20.1.)
If you have been using the previous stable version, 1.13.x, you are
strongly encouraged to upgrade, as no further bugfixes will be back-
propagated. (Ideally, Cabal and Hackage should also now cease to
recommend 1.13.x as a preferred version, but I do not know how to
change that. A simple "cabal install HaXml" will unfortunately still
find 1.13.x, so please use "cabal install HaXml-1.20.1" with explicit
There have been significant API changes since 1.13.x, and a brief
migration guide is included on the website. In summary:
* There is a SAX-like stream parser.
* Ordinary parsing of XML documents can now also be lazy.
* Some types have changed.
* Some old classes have been re-arranged into a single new class.
