[ANN] VTD-XML Version 1.5 Released 

Eight years after the invention of XML, DOM and SAX,
despite their respective issues, are still the mainstays
of application developers. 

So is it the end of road for XML parsing innovation? 

XimpleWare thinks not. We are proud to announce the
availability of both C and Java version 1.5 of VTD-XML,
the next generation open-source XML parser that goes
beyond DOM and SAX in terms of performance, memory
usage and ease of use. 

The technical highlights of VTD-XML are: 

* Performance: the world's fastest XML parser,
 between 5x~10x faster than DOM
* Memory Usage: 3x to 5x less than DOM, 1.3x~1.5x
 XML document size
* Random access with built-in XPath support
* A simple and intuitive API 

Other advanced features include:
* Buffer reuse
* Large document support (2GByte)
* Incremental update
* Hardware acceleration
* Native XML indexing.
