Expat 1.95.7 released

Expat is a fast XML parser written in C based on code
written by XML and SGML guru James Clark. A new
version, Expat 1.95.7, has been released by the current maintainers of the package, fixing some problems caught by picky compilers and improving the
package's cross-platform support.

Changes include:

1. Introduced an XMLCALL macro to control the
calling convention used by the Expat API; this macro should
be used to annotate prototypes and definitions of callback
implementations in code compiled with a calling convention
other than the default convention for the host

2. Improved ability to build without the
configure-generated expat_config.h header. This is
useful for applications which embed Expat rather than
linking in the library.

3. Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 458907, 609603,
676844, 679754, 692878, 692964, 695401, 699323, 699487,

4. Improved hash table lookups.

See the Expat home page,, for
more information on the changes in this release and on
Expat in general.
