Comment(by aperi2007):

 I guess probably no, but I'm not sure of this.

 I see these reports that say all the changes between libxml2 versions.


 As it say the only two suspectable release that could break compatibility
 2.6.22 to 2.6.23
 2.8.0 to 2.9.0

 The total incompatibility are about 6.58&%
 as reported from here.

 So I guess it is pretty incompatibility.

 So perhaps libxml 2.9.0 is not a good update as is.

 But tinyows 1.0.0 rc4 is really used as is now on ogeo4w ?

 The previsous version of libxml2 has a knowed GML bug that need to do some
 manual changes on libxml2 himself to use with tinyows (rc4 also).

 So perhaps just now is the tinyows 1.0.0 rc4 that don't work very well
 with a libxml2 2.6 is that library was not manual patched ?
