I'm happy to announce the release of the first official alpha version of lxml 2.2. It brings a couple of new features that mainly round up the existing tool set.
I considered making this a beta release, but I wanted to permit some more testing even before a feature freeze. So, as usual, all kinds of feedback are appreciated.
Have fun, Stefan
2.2alpha1 (2008-11-23) Features added
* Support for XSLT result tree fragments in XPath/XSLT extension functions. * QName objects have new properties namespace and localname. * New options for exclusive C14N and C14N without comments. * Instantiating a custom Element classes creates a new Element.
* XSLT didn't inherit the parse options of the input document. * 0-bytes could slip through the API when used inside of Unicode strings. * With lxml.html.clean.autolink, links with balanced parenthesis, that end in a parenthesis, will be linked in their entirety (typical with Wikipedia links).
