Update to 1.56:
   - added line number interface (thanks to Peter Haworth)
   - patch to make perl 5.8.1 and XML::LibXML work together (thanks to François Pons)
   - added getElementById to XML::LibXML::Document (thanks to Robin Berjon)
   - fixes symbol problem with versions of libxml2 compiled without
     thread support (reported by Randal L. Schwartz)
   - tiny code clean ups
   - corrected tested versions after a local setup problem

   - fixed possible problems with math.h
   - added C14N interface "toStringC14N()" (thanks to Chip Turner)
   - fixed default namespace bug with libxml2 2.5.8 (by Vaclav Barta)
   - fixed a NOOP in the XPath code.

   - converted documentation to DocBook

Version 1.54 fixes potentional buffer overflows were possible with earlier
versions of the package.

   - Catalog interface is aware about libxml2 configuration
   - XML::LibXML should work now on systems without having zlib installed
   - cleaned the error handling code, which
     - fixes bad reporting of the validating parser
     - fixes bad reporting in xpath functions
   - added getElementsBy*Name() functions for the Document Class
   - fixed memory management problem introduced in 1.53
     (that fixes a lot strange things)
   - interface for raw libxml2 DOM building functions
     (currently just addChild() and addNewChild(), others will follow)

   - fixed segmentation fault during validation under libxml2 2.4.25
   - fixed bad CDATA handing in XML::LibXML::SAX::Builder
   - fixed namespace handing in XML::LibXML::SAX
   - fixed attribute handing in XML::LibXML::SAX
   - fixed memory leak       in XML::LibXML::SAX
   - fixed memory leak       in XML::LibXML::Document
   - fixed segfault while appending entity ref nodes to documents
   - fixed some backward compatibility issues
   - fixed cloning with namespaces misbehaviour
   - fixed parser problems with libxml2 2.5.3+
   - moved iterator classes into a separate package
     (after realizing some CPAN testers refuse to read their warnings
     from Makefile.PL)
   - improved parser testsuite
   - improved M
   - more documentation

   - catalog interface
   - enabled SGML parsing
   - implemented libxml2 dom recovering
   - parsing into GDOME nodes is now possible
   - XML::LibXML::SAX is now faster
   - made XML::LibXML::SAX parser running without errors in most (all?) cases
     (DTD handling is still not implemented).

   DOM interface
   - Node Iterator class
   - NodeList Iterator class
   - introduced XML::GDOME import and export. (EXPERIMENTAL)
   - more security checks

   general blur
   - removed code shared with XML::GDOME to a separate XML::LibXML::Common
     module (check CPAN)
   - removed some redundand code
   - more documentation (and docu fixes) (thanks to Petr Pajas)

   major fixes:
   - possible buffer overflow with broken XML:
     This may effect all older versions of XML::LibXML, please upgrade!

   - a bug while replacing the document element.
   - very stupid encoding bug. all UTF8 strings will now be marked as
     UTF8 correctly
   - namespace functions to work with empty namespaces

     the namespaces of the document element will always be added now
   - threaded perl 5.8.0 issues
   - calling external entity handlers work again
   - XML::LibXML::SAX::Parser will not throw warnings on DTD nodes
