Version 2.0 (not planed yet)

  • Move to XPath 2.0 (Would simplify quite some code, but introduce a dependency)
  • Removing support for Java 6 & 7. (Would simplify a lot of code)

Version 1.4.x

  • Replacing dynamic proxy by asm generated class (Depending on result of performance analysis) (This seems to be not necessary anymore. Performance with Saxon seems to be quite well.)
  • Adding new Collection based API.

Version 1.4.2

  • New feature: Reading projection methods may throw exception on non existing values.

Version 1.4.1

  • Performance enhancements by pre processing reflection metadata for InvocationHandlers
  • Performance enhancements by reusing compiled XPath expressions
  • Support for XPath variables to decrease number of dynamic projections (which are slower)
  • Handling of type conversions which depend on a format. (Date, Numbers, ...?)

Version 1.4.0 (current release)

  • Replace current simple XPath-DOM-Writer with a full XPath capable parser (implemented in jcc branch)
  • Enhance handling of non existing nodes.
  • Breaking API by small bugfix in handling w3c nodes as values (no one seems to use this feature anyway ;-)
  • Breaking API by changing changing the default value for String conversion to null You may get NullPointerExceptions for absent elements or attributes. (There is a flag to choose the previous behavior.)
