I'm very excited to see the AntiSamy projects recent update! Nice work,



After over a year, version 1.5 is finally released!

This version requires java 1.5.

1.5 promises to be significantly faster than previous releases; your
mileage will vary anything from just some percent to a full 5 times faster,
depending on use cases. A lot of attention has been put to typical "server"
validation cases in this release.

The DOM parser is still the fastest by a clear margin if you do a lot of
parameter validation (short strings). If you additionally only use AntiSamy
to avoid malicious data the DOM parser will be even faster if you avoid
calling CleanResults#getCleanHTML

We also fixed issue 133, 135, 147 & 121. Nekohtml has also been upgraded to
avoid all sorts of interesting OOME's and
stack overflows. Also, this version no longer depends on xercesImpl,
avoiding a whole bunch of interesting conflicts.

The internal interfaces have changed quite significantly; the external
interfaces have very minor changes that should not affect most users.

Enjoy !
