Description

LSAC(v2)
The libxml2 software library is used to manipulate XML files. It includes support to read, modify and write XML and HTML files. It is also the basis for the libxslt library which processes XSLT-1.0 stylesheets. This update fixes the following bugs: * Due to errors in the internal regular expression support, libxml2 sometimes failed when validating XMLs with certain XSD and Relax-NG files. Currently, the relaxng and xmlregexp codes are modified and libxml2 can now validate XMLs with those specific XSD and Relax-NG files. (BZ#915350) * Previously, an internal routine xmlDOMWrapCloneNode would fail to preserve the namespace of an XML element being copied, which caused the namespace of the parameter node to be omitted from the copy. With this update, the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#915837) Users of libxml2 parser are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
