Announcing libmusicbrainz release 5.1.0

I have released a new version of libmusicbrainz. The main changes in this release are the removal of ‘non-free’ XML parsing code, replacing it with libxml2. N.B. Due to the ABI change, the soname of this library has been bumped. Existing applications will need to be recompiled against the new version. The following are the main changes in this release:

  • Fix LMB-33 – Handle ‘ended’ element in ‘relation’
  • Fix LMB-34 – Remove non-free XML parser and replace with libxml2
  • Add support for cross-compilation and building out of tree

The release is available here: libmusicbrainz-5.1.0.tar.gz (MD5 checksum: 4cc5556aa40ff7ab8f8cb83965535bc3) Documentation for the new version is available under http://metabrainz.github.com/libmusicbrainz/
