A new XML library for PHP

Dealing with XML is annoying to many, and certainly us. We've tried many different approaches to make working with XML less frustrating, and we've finally landed on an approach that we're happy with.

We're launching sabre/xml to the public today. You can find a bit of an overview on this blog, or you can jump straight in the documentation.

This library is already integrated into the master branch of sabre/dav, which will be released as 2.2 soon. We rewrote almost all our XML handling code, and there was quite a bit! The next release has over 10.000 changed lines.

The next major version of sabre/vobject will also depend on it to support reading and writing xCal and xCard.
