the 2 changes i'm aware of (between 4.0.6 and 4.0.7):


$xml->root() in 4.0.6 returns:

DomNode Object
    [node] => Resource id #3
    [type] => 1
    [name] => ibaconfig
    [content] =>

but in 4.0.7

DomElement Object
    [type] => 1
    [tagname] => ibaconfig
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 136185560

especially the difference between in name and tagname is annoying.

->[content] is also missing in .7, so i have to do a $root->children(),
where i can find the content of a DomElement-Object, but the structure of
the returned array/classes is also different and not complete (why is
there no type-attribute in a DomText Node?)

I assume, these changes are done to comply with some standards/"common
writing of doms", so I see the intention behind that, but it should be
noted somewhere (and the manual be updated).

The changes between 4.0.6 and .7 are this big, 'cause the domxml
version from an older version (4.0.4?) was included in the release and not
the one in the cvs since 4.0.5-dev (or around that...). it was rolled
back in 4.0.5 and 4.0.6 , 'cause of the "drastic" api-changes...
