[ #6877 ]

Finally made some progress on my To Do list. This week I uploaded a new version of my RSS module to CPAN. The first upload was spoilt by a test failure on some systems, which resulted in much head-scratching, and a revised upload a day later.

XML::RSS::Tools 0.06 seems to be okay. It works okay on both my Linux and Windows boxen, so that's something, I'll have to wait to find out where it doesn't work. I think it even partially fixes the duff XML that XML::RSS generates. Given that there is an 9-month old open bug on RT for this I don't hold out much hope of it getting fixed any time soon.

All I have to do now is work out why the same version of LibXML/LibXSLT generate different XML output files, from the same input files? I think it's that my Linux boxen are running newer versions of the underlying XML Library than my NT boxen....

As davorg recently pointed out HTML::TreeBuilder was recently upgraded. I use this module in my templating application, and some of the improvments caught me off guard. Non the less this is a top module, and well worth having. Looking at the docs it looks like it made it into Perl & LWP, even more reasons to buy the book now..!

    Yes, it is. libxml2 keeps changing in slightly strange and different ways.
