Otley, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 21, 2011 -- Liquid Fast Infoset .Net is now hosted on the Open Source web site SorceForge free for use in Open Source projects under the GNU Affero General Public License.
Liquid Fast Infoset .Net is a C# class library that allows you to add XML Compression support to your .Net project. Fast Infoset is a ITU-T (X.891) and ISO (IEC 24824-1) standard for producing small binary XML documents that are fast to parse.
This decision has been taken to allow Open Source community to benefit and contribute to this XML industry standard.
Fast Infoset (or FI) is an international standard that specifies a binary encoding format for the XML Information Set (XML Infoset) as an alternative to the XML document format. It aims to provide more efficient serialization than the text-based XML format.
The Fast Infoset specification is defined by both the ITU-T and the ISO standards bodies. FI is officially named ITU-T Rec. X.891 and ISO/IEC 24824-1 (Fast Infoset), respectively. However, it is commonly referred to by the name Fast Infoset. The standard was published by ITU-T on May 14, 2005, and by ISO on May 4, 2007.
One can think of FI as gzip for XML, though FI aims to optimize both document size and processing performance, whereas gzip optimizes only the size. While the original formatting is lost, no information is lost in the conversion from XML to FI and back to XML.
