  • fix 7-bit USASCII with implicit alignment
  • add schema definition warning if xs:appinfo source is incorrect
  • fix unsignedXXX values
  • improve schema definition error detection
  • eliminate duplicate errors
  • require that a complexType must have exactly one child, which must be a sequence, choice, or group reference
  • allow spaces in pathnames to input files and schemas
  • calculated values (e.g. inputValueCalc) maintain their precision in error messages
  • check for invalid DFDL entities
  • support for escaping percent sign

Java API

  • fix character entity infoset output when using the Java API
  • add support for controlling the debugger, including a trace debugger
  • fix issue where multiple retrievals of the parser result caused error

TDML Runner

  • can now use CDATA tags in dfdl:infoset for cases where characters like < and > are in the expected output
  • replaceDFDLEntities attribute for documentPart element now defaults to false


  • new --trace option to display verbose output of Daffodil parsing
  • the --debug option can now take a file containing a list of debugger commands (e.g. --debug=cmds.txt)

  • fix bug where order of multiple --schema options was not maintained


  • add 'history' command to display the list of past commands
  • replace 'undisplay' command with 'delete display'
