Home page: http://erratique.ch/software/uutf Release notes: https://github.com/dbuenzli/uutf/blob/master/CHANGES.md * Xmlm 1.2.0 Minor release that improves the odds of generating well-formed XML by automatically translating illegal XML unicode characters present in output `Data signals or attributes to the unicode replacement character U+FFFD (thanks to David Sheets for insisting that something should be done about that). It also deprecates the following two features: 1) The (non-standard) ability to decode more than one document with the same input abstraction. See http://erratique.ch/software/xmlm/doc/Xmlm#iseq 2) The functorial interface that allows to specify alternative datatypes for strings and internal buffers. See http://erratique.ch/software/xmlm/doc/Xmlm#sto Please get in touch if 1) or 2) is important/affects you. For other changes consult the release notes.
