we proudly present the next release of XStream with version 1.4.2. It's mainly
a maintenance release with bug fixes and some small enhancements.
- XStream libraries can be used now directly in Android, therefore support of
Java 1.4.2 has been stopped with the delivery. Anyone who needs a version for
Java 1.4.2 can build it easily from source, this build is still supported and
part of CI.
- New extended HierarchicalStreamReader interface with peekNextChild method.
All XStream readers implement the new interface (by Nikita Levyankov).
- Special support for Collections.EMPTY_LIST, Collections.EMPTY_SET and
Collections.EMPTY_MAP and collections created with
Collections.singletonList(), Collections.singletonSet() and
- Support additional parameters for XStreamConverter annotation (e.g. to
declare a ToAttributedValueConverter).
