Is there such a thing as XML 2.0?

By | January 12, 2018

I’m trying to build a .swc containing a .xml config file into Flash Builder, but I keep getting an error saying that there is an XML version mismatch on my .xml config file; it specifies a 2.0 xml.

I’ve tried on my own specifying a version 2.0 in the opening tag of the .xml file such as:

<?xml version="2.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

but that didn’t work.

I also googled xml 2.0 and wikipedia says that there is no official release of xml 2.0, though a few sites mention the above opening tags as xml 2.0. So is there xml 2.0 out there and if so, how do I use it?


No there is not. There are currently two versions of XML: v1.0 and v1.1. The v1.0 Standard is currently available in the Fifth Edition, the v1.1 Standard in the Second Edition.

The W3C recommends the use of v1.0, as long as you dont need the features of v1.1.

All to be read here on wikipedia and here on the W3C page.
