Good day,

We've released xsd 2.2.0. The NEWS file entries for this version
are as follows:

    * Detection of a version mismatch between the generated code and
      the runtime.


    * Escaping of a global element name that conflicts with a global type
      name. This is a backwards-incompatible change. Previous versions
      map them to the same name.

    * New options, --generate--insertion and --generate-extraction,
      trigger generation of (binary) data representation stream
      insertion and extraction operators, respectively. This allows
      one to serialize/deserialize in-memory representation to/from
      data representation streams such as XSD, CDR, etc. ACE CDR
      streams are supported out of the box (see the binary example).
      User-supplied streams can be used via an adaptation layer.

    * New serialization flag, no_xml_declaration, instructs the XML
      serialization functions to omit an XML declaration. This is useful
      for streaming serialization (see the streaming example).

    * Optimizations to reduce generated code size.


    * New options, --generate-validation and --suppress-validation,
      trigger and suppress generation of the validation code,
      respectively. The validation code is the implementation of the
      XML Schema validation in the generated code (also known as
      "perfect" parser). In this version validation of the element
      structure has been implemented.

    * New architecture for underlying XML parsers. This is a backwards-
      incompatible change. Existing applications will have to be
      modified. See examples for details.

In addition to this, a number of bugs have been fixed. Thanks to the
following individuals for reporting bugs and/or suggesting fixes and
