Hi everyone,

I just posted a JDOM 1.0 beta7 release candidate to the web site.  The
list of improvements over beta6 is substantial!  We now have:

* Support for JAXP
* Support for XSLT
* A correctly implemented entity model
* A vastly more robust SAXBuilder (with a public SAXHandler, 
  pluggable factories, and createXXX() methods to simplify subclassing)
* More reliable building and outputting
* A convenient detach() method for all tree objects
* The long-desired setName() and setNamespace() methods on Element
* Machine-readable version information in META-INF
* Several significant performance improvements
* Many bugs fixed

The full list of changes can be found in CHANGES.txt.

The build is from the head of CVS and appears solid, but I'm waiting to
call it officially "beta7" until some of you out there check it against
your applications to make sure there aren't any regressions from beta6
(and that I got the platform-specific newlines handled correctly).  :-) 
Once a few of you have confirmed we're OK, I'll mark the build as an
official beta7 and announce it to the world.

So please, give this a test and let me know how it works.
