    • Cartridges migrated to SAX NG
    • Supports XSLT and StringTemplate resources unlike the legacy SAX filter

    Visitor mementos: a convenient way for stashing and un-stashing a visitor's state during its execution lifecycle.

    🆕 New Smooks XSD schema (xmlns=""):

    • Dropped default-selector-namespace and selector-namespace XML attributes in favour of declaring namespaces within the standard xmlns attribute from the smooks-resource-list element
