Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.2 was released on January 13, 2004.
- “Version 2.7.2 of my feed parser, released today, will by default refuse to parse this feed. It does a first-pass check for wellformedness, and when that fails it sets the ‘bozo’ bit in the result to 1 and immediately terminates. You can revert to the previous behavior by passing disableWellFormedCheck=1, but it will print arrogant warning messages to stderr to the effect that anyone who can’t create a well-formed XML feed is a bozo and an incompetent fool.” source
