I've just downloaded beta7 and have experienced no problems so far. Just a
minor point though: the version listed in info.xml is still beta 6, which is
displayed with "java -jar jdom.jar". 

Thanks for a great product!

> 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.

> 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.
