I just posted a release candidate for JDOM 1.1.1.  I'd appreciate  
people giving it a test to confirm there's nothing problematic about  
this, before I make it an official release.  I'd especially like your  
review if you're (a) an expert on surrogate pairs, (b) use a lot of  
XPath, (c) have deployments on JDK 1.2/1.3/1.4, or (d) really push the  
speed of XMLOutputter and can confirm the surrogate pair work hasn't  
slowed you down noticeably.  Email me privately with reports of  
success, or publicly on jdom-interest with any issues.


Here's what's new:

Fixed a synchronization issue in the Namespace class that could cause a
hang when doing concurrent builds.

Added output support for Unicode surrogate pairs.

Added a new flag on SAXBuilder named setFastReconfigure() which, when  
can speed reconfiguration by skipping repeated attempts to set  
features that
are determined not to be present on a parser.  Useful when doing many  
per second.

Updated the provided Jaxen library from a modified Jaxen 1.0 to the  
which is Jaxen 1.1.1.

Added reflection code in the error reporting system to support Android's
Dalvik VM which doesn't have the java.rmi.* classes.
