rbistolfi has packaged an updated version of libxml2 for VL 5.9 and VL 5.9.1.  This is a security patch that fixes known vulnerabilities.  Security conscious users may wish to upgrade to the new version immediately.  The package is currently in testing but it will be moved to patches as soon as we have adequate user testing done.

libxml2: libxml2 (XML parser library)
libxml2: Libxml2 is the XML C parser library and toolkit.  XML itself is a
libxml2: metalanguage to design markup languages  -- i.e. a text language where
libxml2: structures are added to the content using extra "markup" information
libxml2: enclosed between angle brackets.  HTML is the most well-known markup
libxml2: language.  Though the library is written in C, a variety of language
libxml2: bindings make it available in other environments.

After testing this package, please take a moment and come back to this thread to let us know how it works for you.
