Hi Willem,

Thanks for the information. How about backword compatibility with
previous versions of erlsom? I'm asking in order to know if I can just
drop this version in yaws and have it seamlessly work.

Best regards,

Ahmed Al-Issaei

>     processing) has been made easier;
>    - the output values can be binaries in stead of strings;
>   - I added some examples and improved the documentation a bit;
> - I changed the license to the Lesser GPL.
> Erlsom can be found on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/erlsom
