Xerces-C++ 3.1.0 was released yesterday. This version contains a 
number of new features, performance improvements and a large number
of bug fixes, especially in the XML Schema spec conformance area,

 * Support for handling multiple XML Schema import declarations with 
   the same target namespace.

 * Support for configuration of the parser buffer low water mark.

 * DOMLSParser::parseWithContext implementation.

 * Improved XML Schema performance and reduced memory footprint when 
   validating with large maxOccurs values. If available, the SSE2 
   instructions are used to further speedup this case.

 * Improved scalability of the XML Schema identity checking (key, 
   keyref, and unique).

 * More robust external library detection (libcurl and ICU).

 * Compilation of the ICU message loader resources no longer depends 
   on the ICU implementation details.

For a more detailed list of changes see the official announcement:


I have also written a blog post that describes some of the new 
features in greater detail:


This release has been tested on all major platforms and comes with 
precompiled libraries (total 16) for various CPU architectures, 
operating systems, and C++ compilers. You can download them along
with the source distributions from the Xerces-C++ Download page:


The Xerces-C++ 3.1.0 release has also been successfully tested with
