These two releases contain an incompatible change to the (I)PlaceholderHandler interface, thus the new minor versions. The Evaluate method now receives a variable number of string arguments in addition to the textual content of the element/attribute. This allows placeholders like ${xmlunit.matchesRegex(some\s*regex)}.

For XMLUnit.NET only the placeholders package has changed, for Java in addition the assertj module is now supposed to be compatible with AssertJ 3.15+.

This is the very first release of XMLUnit.NET that supports .NET Standard 2.0 in addition to the traditional .NET Framework 3.5. Only the build process and the nuget packages have changed, there is no other difference between this release and XMLUnit.NET 2.6.0. If you don't need support for .NET Standard there is no reason to upgrade.

This release has been labeled beta as the packaging needs more thorough testing by the community.
