That was a long time ago (Java 1.2), and XML parsers were not
mainstream. NanoXML was light and simple, so we simply merged it in
our source code since many things in IzPack have been strongly
coupled with this library. Was it a bad idea? If it had been started
today I would say yes, but at the time beeing that was probably not a
The NanoXML version should be the same as the one mentionned in the
NanoXML documentation. I think we had one or two modifications, but
the project stopped beeing developed after a while anyway. I don't
remember them releasing security fixes either. I think the last
