James Clark Hands Off Expat XML Parser to New Management

XMLhack is reporting that James Clark, author of the XML parser called Expat, is handing off management of the project to a team of developers lead by Clark Cooper. Cooper is the co-author of XML::Parser, a Perl module that CTDATA uses and recommends.

Expat is a C language XML parser that is used as a component by a number of other products that interface with Mozilla, Perl, Python, and PHP.

So much code depends upon Expat that some in the developer community feel that a commitment to produce a commercial quality shareable library needs to be made. Clark Cooper, Fred Drake, and Paul Prescod apparently are willing to make that commitment.
