If you’re a Rubyist, and you have to work with XML, then you know and love Nokogiri. It’s a great way to parse all kinds of XML and HTML documents.
Today, the Nokogiri team has a big announcement: 1.5.0 is out! Why’s the “Y U NO RELEASE? Edition” so important? Well, if you’re using JRuby, no longer are you dependent on any C code via FFI: it’s all Ruby, all the way down. There’s also a nice little feature that lets you take a native Java XML document and parse it with Nokogiri without having to translate to text first.
