Good day,

We've released XSD 2.3.0. The NEWS file entries for this version are
as follows:

    * Name conflicts across type inheritance hierarchies are now detected
      and resolved via name escaping.


    * New option, --suppress-parsing, suppresses generation of the parsing
      constructors and functions. This can be used to minimize the generated
      code footprint when parsing from XML is not used.

    * New option, --generate-forward, triggers generation of a forward
      declaration header file for types defined in the schema. A set of
      --fwd-* options that control the resulting file name as well as
      prologue and epilogue code are available.

    * New option, --generate-xml-schema, triggers generation of mapping for
      the XML Schema namespace to a separate header file. See the man pages
      for details and examples/cxx/tree/custom/calendar for an example.

    * New option, --extern-xml-schema, triggers inclusion of a header
      file for the XML Schema namespace instead of generating necessary
      declarations inline. See the man pages for details and
      examples/cxx/tree/custom/calendar for an example.

    * New options, --custom-type and --custom-type-regex, instruct the
      compiler to use custom C++ type for a type defined in the schema.
      The standard mapping can still be generated (with a different name)
      usually to be used as a base. Built-in XML Schema types can be
      customized using this mechanism. See the man pages for details and
      examples/cxx/tree/custom/* for examples.

    * The generated parsing constructors and serialization operators have
      been changed to use the Xerces-C++ DOM elements and attributes
      instead of the internal wrapper types. This should provide easier
      integration with other code and libraries that use the Xerces-C++
      DOM types such as Berkeley DB XML.

    * New example, examples/cxx/tree/dbxml, shows how to use the C++/Tree
      mapping on top of the Berkeley DB XML database.


    * Validation of the attribute structure in the generated code.

    * Validation of the character content models including mixed content in
      the generated code.

    * Validation of the built-in XML Schema types.

    * Optimizations for space and time in the generated code. In particular
      data coping during parsing and validation was significantly reduced.

With this version we also added support for IBM XL C++ 8.0 compiler and
i686-solaris and powerpc-linux-gnu platforms.
