I've released version 1.2.0 of Jaxen:



Jaxen is an open source XPath library written in Java. It is adaptable
to many different object models, including DOM, XOM, dom4j, and JDOM.
Is it also possible to write adapters that treat non-XML trees such as
compiled Java byte code or Java beans as XML, thus enabling you to
query these trees with XPath too.

This release is compiled for Java 1.4 or later. If you're still using
Java 1.3 or earlier, you can still use Jaxen 1.1.6.

Aside from now requiring Java 1.4 or later, Jaxen 1.2.0 is API
compatible with 1.1.6. Most changes were behind the scenes to account
for the demise of Codehaus where this project used to be hosted.

The org.w3c.dom UserDataHandler interface is no longer bundled since
tit's available in Java 1.5 and later. This should alleviate some
problems users had with class loaders that balked when encountering a
class they already had in the JDK.

In addition the org.jaxen.pattern package has been deprecated and is
scheduled for removal in 2.0. It's buggy and so far as I can tell, no
one uses it. If anyone is using it, please speak up; though without a
contribution of code or funding it's still likely to go away.

Otherwise 2.0 be mostly API compatible with 1.2.0. However it will not
be *artifact* compatible. That is, I plan to separate out the
navigators for dom4j, JDOM, XOM, and possibly DOM into separate
modules. This will break a number of dependency cycles that bedevil
many Java projects today.
