Well it's been something of a while, but I've been doing some work on Arabica again. Yay. It's been good fun. I am now the "proud" owner of a copy of Visual C++ .Net
, Microsoft latest and indeed greatest C++ compiler. I've spent the day making sure everything builds with it, which it does. There are now VC++.Net solution and project files in CVS. There still some Borland C++Builder project files in there too, but they must be very out of date now. If you're using BCB with Arabica, perhaps you can donate your versions?
I've also verified, on Windows using VC++.Net at least, that Arabica works with the latest parser releases - that's Expat 1.95.6, libxml 2.5.4. and Xerces 2.2.0. With VC++.Net, Xerces actually puts itself into its own namespace, so there are fixes for that in CVS. The other things worked fine. Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to build it under Linux.
