 Changes in 3.26
       added argument to -i in the Makefile to prevent
       problem in win32
       added XML::Twig::Elt former_next_sibling,
       former_prev_sibling and former_parent methods
       squashed a memory leak when parsing html
       (forgot to call delete on the HTML::Tree object)
       fixed bug that caused XML::Twig to hang if
       there was a syntax error in a predicate
       (RT#19499, reported by Dan Dascalescu)
       made start_tag and end_tag more consistent: they
       now both return the empty string for comments,
       PIs... (reported by Dan Dascalescu)
       added parsefile_inplace and parsefile_html_inplace
       methods (thanks to GrandFather on perlmonks)
       added support to add css stylesheet in the
       add_stylesheet method (thanks to Georgi Sotirov)
       patched tests to work on Win32
       added set_inner_xml inner_xml and set_inner_html
 Changes in 3.25
       patched to work with perl 5.005!
       fixed a bug in xml_pp when pretty printing a
       file in place in a different file system
 Changes in 3.24
       added loading the text of entities stored in
       separate files (using SYSTEM) when the (awfully
       named!) expand_external_ents option is used.
       Thanks to jhx for spotting this.
       changed set_cdata, set_pi and set_comment so that
       if you call them on an element of the wrong kind,
       everything works as expected, instead of swallowing
       silently the data. Bug spotted by cmccutcheon
       fixed a whole bunch of things to make the module
       run and the tests pass on VMS, thanks to Peter
       (Stig) Edwards who reported bug RT #18655 and
       provided a patch.
       fixed bug on get_xpath( '/root[1]') expressions,
       RT #18789 spotted by memfrob.
       added the add_stylesheet method, that... adds a
       stylesheet (xsl type is supported, let me know if
       other types are needed) to a document.
       allowed pasting PI/Comment elements before or after
       the root of a document (see discussion at
       Thanks to rogue90 for noticing the problem, and to
       Tanktalus for finding the best way to solve it.
       aliased unwrap to erase (eg added the unwrap method
       to XML::Twig::Elt, identical to the existing erase)
       suggested by Chris Burbridge.
       fixed bug RT #17522: flushing twice at the end of
       the the parse would output the last fragment twice.
       Spotted by Harco de Hilster.
       dealt with bug RT #17500: parsing a pipe when using
       the UTF8 perlIO layer (through PERL_UNICODE or -C)
       now raises an error, found by Nikolaus Rath.
       made the tests pass when the UTF8 perlIO layer is
       used. At this point potential problems when parsing
       non-UTF8 XML in this configuration are not trapped.
 Changes in 3.23
       added autoflush: there is no more need for the
       last $twig->flush after the parsing, it is done
       automatically at the end of the parsing, with the
       same arguments as the first flush on the twig.
       This can be turned of by setting $twig->{twig_autoflush}
       to 0.
       WARNING: if you finished the output with a direct
       print instead of a flush, then this change will
       cause a bug. Hopefully this should not be the case
       and is easily fixable.
       fixed bug RT #17145 where get_xpath('//root/elt[1]/child')
       would produce a fatal error if there were no elt
       element under root. Spotted by Dan Dascalescu.
       fixed bug RT #17064 (comments and PIs after the
       root element were not properly processed), spotted
       by Dan Dascalescu.
       fixed bug RT #17044: the SYSTEM value was not
       output in UpdateDTD mode, thanks to Michal
       Lewandowski for pointing this out.
       changed the way empty tags are expanded with the
       'html' style: only tags that are allowed to be
       empty in XHTML are output as '<tag />', thanks
       to Tom Rathborne for proding me to look into this.
       added a 'wrapped' pretty_print option, that is
       a bit dodgy I think but that might please some.
       fixed bug RT #16540 (tags with specific names
       (like 'level'), tripped XML::Twig, spotted by
       added comparison with XML::LibXML in the SEE ALSO
       section (and in the FAQ), following a question
       from surf on c.l.p.m
       XML::Twig now rejects string/regexp condition
       in twig_roots
       added better error checking in xml_grep
       fix for string/regexp condition in xml_grep
       added support for ! @att (or not @att) in get_xpath
       added support for several predicates in get_xpath
       (not nested predicates though).
       fixed bug RT #15671 (wrong condition interpretation
       for attribute value 0)
       added XML::Twig print_to_file method
       added XML::Twig::Elt methods: following_elt,
       following_elts, preceding_elt, preceding_elts
       (needed to support the corresponding axis in
 Changes in 3.22
       added the XML::Twig xparse method, which parses
       whatever is thrown at it (filehandle, string,
       HTML file, HTML URL, URL or file).
       added the XML::Twig nparse method, which creates
       a twig and then calls xparse on the last parameter.
       added the parse_html and parsefile_html methods,
       which parse HTML strings (or fh) and files
       respectively, whith the help of HTML::TreeBuilder.
       the implementation may still change. Note that
       at the moment there seems to be encoding problems
       with it (if the input is not UTF8).
       added info to t/zz_dump_config.t
       fixed a bug that caused subs_text to leave empty
       #PCDATA elements if the regexp matched at the begining
       or at the end of the text of an element.
       fixed RT #15014: in a few methods objects were
       created as XML::Twig::Elt, instead of in the classu^!F
       of the calling object.
       fixed RT #14959: problem with wrap_children when
       an attribute of one of the child element includes
       a '>'
       improved the docs for wrap_children
       added a better error message when re-using an
       existing twig during the parse
       partially fixed a bug with windows line-endings in
       CDATA sections with keep_encoding set (RT #14815)
       added Test::Pod::Coverage test to please the kwalitee
       police ;--)
 Changes in 3.21
       fixed a test that failed if Tie::IxHash was not
       added link to Atom feed for the CPAN testers
       results at
 Changes in 3.20
       fixed the pod (which caused the tests to fail)
 Changes in 3.19
       redid the fix to RT # 14008, this one should be ok
       restructured tests
       added the _dump method (probably not finished)
 Changes in 3.18
       added a fix to deal with a bug in XML::Parser in the
       original_string method when used in CDATA sections
       longer than 1024 chars (RT # 14008) thanks to Dan
       Dascalescu for spotting the bug and providing a test
       added better error diagnostics when the wrong arguments
       are used in paste
       fixed a bug in subs_text when the text of an element
       included \n (RT #13665) spotted by Dan Dascalescu
       cleaned up the behaviour of erase when the element
       being erased has extra_data (comments or pis) attached
       fixed a bug in subs_text that sometimes messed up text
       after the matching text
       fixed the erase/group_tags option of simplify to make
       it exactly similar to XML::Simple's
       fixed a bug that caused XML::Twig to crash when ignore
       was used with twig_roots (RT #13382) spotted by Larry
       fixed bug in xml_split with default entities (they
       ended up being doubly escaped)
       fixed various bugs when dealing with ids (changing
       existing ids, setting the attribute directly...)
       mark and split now accepts several tags/ as arguments,
       so you can write for example:
         $elt->mark( qr/^(\w+): (.*)$/, 'dt', 'dd');
       added XML::Twig::Elt children_trimmed_text method,
       patch sent by ambrus (RT #12510)
       changed children_text and children_trimmed_text to
       have them return the entire text in scalar context
       fixed bug that caused XML::Twig not to play nice with
       XML::Xerces (due to improper import of UNIVERSAL::isa)
       spotted and patched by Colin Robertson.
       removed most references to 'gi' in the docs, replaced
       them by tag. I guess Robin Berjon's relentless teasing
       is to be credited with this one.
       added tag_regexp condition on handlers (a regexp instead
       of a regular condition will trigger the handler if the
       tag matches), suggested by Franck Porcher, implementation
       helped by a few Perl Monks
       fixed typos in xml_split (RT #11911 and #11911),
       reported by Alexey Tourbin
       added tests for xml_split and xml_merge and fixed
       a few bugs in the process
       added the -i option to xml_split and xml_merge,
       that use XInclude instead of PIs (preliminary
       support, the XInclude namespace is not declared
       for example).
 			Added the XML::Twig and XML::Twig::Elt trim method
 			that trims an element in-place
 			Added the XML::Twig last_elt method and the XML::Twig::Elt
 			last_descendant method
       Added more tests
