Hi all,

I've released JapaneseCodecs version 1.1.  It is available,
as usual, at:


The package now contains a codec for ISO-2022-JP (so-called
7-bit JIS).  That can be used, for example, to encode/decode
e-mails written in Japanese.

In addition, the ReadStream classes for all encodings are
improved so that read(), readline() and readlines() do not
return an empty string unless an EOF is reached.

Added and modified files have been checked into the Python
Codecs CVS repository.
