Release notes for the 0.6 version of libkml
Welcome to the sixth public release of libkml!
THIS IS ALPHA SOFTWARE. Expect changes. We recommend caution in use in production code.
This is a development shapshot of libkml, and while the general interfaces described are now fairly stable, there is the potential for change! As KML 2.2 is now an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard, the language itself is now stable. It is the intention of libkml to adhere strictly to the OGC KML 2.2 standard.
This is a library to parse, serialize and programmatically access a KML document object model (DOM). The main API is C++, and there are bindings to Python and Java.
We do! We regularly process the millions of KML files crawled by Google using this software. We verify correctness of the KML we publish as Google Earth layers using libkml.
The libkml software is distributed under the new BSD license, whose text is found at the top of each file.
This library has been compiled and tested on Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5, and various flavors of Linux.
See the wiki page for BuildingAndInstalling.
See the Reference.
