[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xerces-c-2.3.0-1

I've updated the version of xerces-c to 2.3.0-1.  This also includes the
xerces-c-devel, xerces-c-doc, and libxerces-c23 packages.

This is an official update release.  The official release announcement text

The Xerces-C team is pleased to announce that Xerces-C 2.3.0 is now
available.  The primary features of this release are:

- pluggable memory management:  Allows an application to have Xerces
request memory from a user-supplied object rather than directly from the
heap.  To allow for maximum flexibility, this has been implemented on a
per-parser basis;
- pluggable panic handler:  The user may now register an object with the
parser that the will notify when it cannot initialize itself;
- security handling:  a means is now provided allowing applications to
limit the extent to which the parser will process certain XML constructs
that could be exploited in a denial-of-service attack.
- partial implementation of DOM level 3 normalization.

The release is available in both source and binary formats; the binary
formats that are provided are for 32- and 64-bit versions of AIX, HPUX,
Linux, Solaris and Windows.  They can be downloaded from

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your

("Devel" for the xerces-c-devel package, "Doc" for the xerces-c-doc
package) and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.
