SOAP::Lite version 0.65 is coming!

It has been over a year since the last release of SOAP::Lite. It is shameful, I know. But recent events have found me a little, how shall we say, "unemployed" and thus having a little extra time. I have been working like mad going through the bug list, and integrating a completely revised set of man pages and documentation, thanks to the generous writings of Randy J. Ray, author of Programming Web Services with Perl, and the contribution of Appendix B from the aforementioned book by O'Reilly. Many thanks to them. In any event, I am waiting on some final legalese from Oreilly, and when I get the final "ok" I will be checking my sources into CVS, and start my testing process. Read on to learn more about what features will be in the next release.
