    has been copy-lefted by Tailand, Microsoft claims ownership of project (see Microsoft Licensing, Microsoft developer files are included). Larry Wall and James Clark copyright have been DELETED. thanks tailand for giving us americans rights to use our own work! has had many new bugs, regressions and refixes of old bugs they created. product confusion: this "product" intently has stolen the name and likeness of an authentic product while providing obstructions and fraudulent licensing / ownerships: it contains tampering. i'm not saying it does work (it worked before they got it). i am saying it is a NON-FREE and also STOLEN work. this would be less tamperous if it were not on a UNIX ORIGIN site (Source Forge) and if Microsoft developers had not altered new versions to point unix groups to get a copy of expat which has been tampered with heavily.

    libexpat.so.0 is still in use by Avast Anti-Virus. I use both Avast and Windows. So I run virus scans in Linux before I boot into windows. And updating the Expat removes Avast from my system due to the dependancy on libexpat.so.0
