Fedora Update Notification

Name : libxml2
Version : 2.6.6
Release : 3
Summary : Library providing XML and HTML support
Description :
This library allows to manipulate XML files. It includes support to read, modify and write XML and HTML files. There is DTDs support this includes parsing and validation even with complex DtDs, either at parse time or later once the document has been modified. The output can be a simple SAX stream or and in-memory DOM like representations. In this case one can use the built-in XPath and XPointer implementation to select subnodes or ranges. A flexible Input/Output mechanism is available, with existing HTTP and FTP modules and combined to an URI library.


Update Information:

Updated libxml2 packages are available to fix an overflow when parsing the URI for remote resources.
