perl-XML-LibXML / Changes

Revision history for Perl extension XML::LibXML

*NOTE:* 
The General DOM API changed from Version 1.40 to 1.49/1.50. Therefore
the behaviour of some functions may have changed to previous
versions. Make shure you read the informations on the XML::LibXML::DOM
manpage!

     if the statement was legal but produced no result.
   - fixed namespace handling in xpath functions
   - fixed local namespace handling in DOM functions
   - pretty formating to all serializing functions

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
