       - Security fix [bsc#1008644, CVE-2016-9180]
         * Added: the no_xxe option to XML::Twig::new, which causes the parse to
           fail if external entities are used (to prevent malicious XML to access
           the filesystem).
         * Setting expand_external_ents to 0 or -1 currently doesn't work as
           expected; To completely turn off expanding external entities use
         * Update documentation for XML::Twig to mention problems with
           expand_external_ents and add information about new no_xxe argument
