Jericho HTML Parser 2.4 released

Jericho HTML Parser is a simple but powerful java library allowing analysis and manipulation of parts of an HTML document, including some common server-side tags, while reproducing verbatim any unrecognised or invalid HTML. Also provides high-level HTML form manipulation functions.

Version 2.4 includes important bug fixes, and introduces the following major features:

1. Licensed under Eclipse Public License (EPL) as well as LGPL.

2. Simple rendering of HTML markup into text.

3. Integrated logging with various logging frameworks

4. Ability to parse HTML tags containing server tags without the need to explicitly exclude the server tags.

5. Automatic full sequential parse when needed.

Changes since version 2.3:

- [1597587] various NPEs in findFormFields()
- [1599700] Segment.findAllStartTags(attributeName...) infinite loop
- Overlapping elements resulted in some elements being listed as a
child of more than one parent element.
- OutputDocument.writeTo(Writer) closed the writer.
- Server tags no longer interfere with parsing of start tag attributes.
- Added Renderer class and Segment.getRenderer() method.
- Added TextExtractor class and Segment.getTextExtractor() method.
