Expat 1.95.8 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 1.95.8, has been released by the current maintainers of the package, fixing still more minor problems caught by picky compilers and improving the
package's cross-platform support. One rather nice new feature has been introduced as well.

Changes include:

1. Major new feature: suspend/resume. Handlers can now request that a parse be suspended for later resumption or aborted altogether. See "Temporarily Stopping Parsing" in the documentation for more details.

2. Some mostly minor bug fixes, but compilation should no longer generate warnings on most platforms. SF issues include: 827319, 840173, 846309, 888329, 896188, 923913, 928113, 961698, 985192.

See the Expat home page, http://www.libexpat.org/, for
more information on the changes in this release and on
Expat in general.
