Libxml2 has been updated to version 2.6.4
Libxml2 is the XML C parser and toolkit developed for the Gnome
project (but usable outside of the Gnome platform), it is free
software available under the MIT License. XML itself is a metalanguage
to design markup languages, i.e. text language where semantic and
structure are added to the content using extra 'markup' information
enclosed between angle brackets. HTML is the most well-known markup
language. Though the library is written in C a variety of language
bindings make it available in other environments.
Please see here for news since the last Cygwin release (2.5.7):
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'libxml2' from the 'Libs' category, if you install it for the first
time, click on the 'skip' field next to 'libxml2' until '2.5.11-1' is
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.
These mirrors already got the package, the others will probably have
the latest version of this package fairly soon:
In the US mirrors.rcn.net and in Australia planetmirror.com are
reliable high bandwidth connections.
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing
list is the appropriate place.
