An updated perl-XML-SAX package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
XML::SAX is a SAX parser access API for Perl. It includes classes and APIs required for implementing SAX drivers, along with a factory class for returning any SAX parser installed on the user's system.
Prior to this update, the presence of a comment in an XML file could cause the XML::SAX parser to terminate unexpectedly with an "End tag mismatch" error. This update adapts the algorithm for finding a closing tag to process comments properly. As a result, XML files that contain comments can now be parsed without errors, as expected.
All users of perl-XML-SAX are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
