News of XML::Grove's death are greatly exaggerated.

XML::Grove is a popular and commonly used module.

XML::Grove is comparable to XML::DOM in that it is intended to hold a complete XML Information Set (as opposed to simpler, but limited parts of XML data). XML::Grove differs from DOM by using ordinary Perl syntax for accessing properties of the XML infoset.

I am not aware of any open, simple bugs (please forward them to me if anyone knows different).

There is one open, very complex bug though that is dependent on a deep (down into C) Perl issue: There appears to be no way, from within a tie's FETCH, to obtain the tied variable that was used to generate the FETCH, only the underlying variable is passed to FETCH. If anyone knows how to get the tied variable associated with the underlying variable passed to FETCH, even if it involves XS, C code, or a patch to Perl, PLEASE let me know. This bug does not affect most users.
