Valgrind is a tool that helps you find memory management problems in programs. When a program is run under Valgrind's supervision, all reads and writes of memory are checked, and calls to malloc/new/free/delete are intercepted. As a result, Valgrind can detect problems such as use of uninitialized memory, reading/writing of memory after it has been freed, reading/writing off the end of malloced blocks, reading/writing inappropriate areas on the stack, memory leaks in which pointers to malloced blocks are lost forever, passing of uninitialized and/or unaddressable memory to system calls, and mismatched use of malloc/new/new  vs. free/delete/delete .
This project has the following developers:
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
