Version increment (2.6.15)

The monthly realease but a bit rushed due to a security alert: and GNOME FTP mirrors

I had scheduled to make a new release at the end of the week but this Bugtraq issue landed in my mailbox yesterday:

Otherwise the code received a lot of testing and bug fixing, it's mostly cleanups, and especially with the security problem everybody is advised to update. Please report any problem found in the update, it's likely a new version will be pushed within one or two weeks if we get troubles:

  • security fixes on the nanoftp and nanohttp modules
  • build fixes:
    • xmllint detection bug in configure
    • building outside the source tree (Thomas Fitzsimmons)
  • bug fixes:
    • HTML parser on broken ASCII chars in names (William)
    • Python paths (Malcolm Tredinnick)
    • xmlHasNsProp and default namespace (William)
    • saving to python file objects (Malcolm Tredinnick)
    • DTD lookup fix (Malcolm)
    • save back <group> in catalogs (William)
    • tree build fixes (DV and Rob Richards)
    • Schemas memory bug
    • structured error handler on Python 64bits
    • thread local memory deallocation
    • memory leak reported by Volker Roth
    • xmlValidateDtd in the presence of an internal subset
    • entities and _private problem (William)
    • xmlBuildRelativeURI error (William).
  • improvements:
    • better XInclude error reports (William)
    • tree debugging module and tests
    • convenience functions at the Reader API (Graham Bennett)
    • add support for PI in the HTML parser.

thanks for everybody who helped with this release by submitting bugs,

code or otherwise,
