CJKCodecs 1.0.2 and iconvcodec 1.1.2 have been released as
new maintenance release.

CJKCodecs is a unified unicode codec set for Chinese, Japanese
and Korean encodings. It supports full features of unicode codec
specification and PEP293 error callbacks on Python 2.3.

CJKCodecs is supporting these encodings in this time:

 big5 cp932 cp949 cp950 euc-jisx0213 euc-jp euc-kr gb18030 gb2312
 gbk hz iso-2022-jp iso-2022-jp-1 iso-2022-jp-2 iso-2022-jp-3
 iso-2022-kr johab shift-jis shift-jisx0213 utf-7 utf-8

And iconvcodec is an adaptive interface that enables POSIX
iconv(3) as python unicode codec.

Iconvcodec is supporting these iconv implementations now:

 GNU libc, GNU libiconv, FreeBSD iconv (old), SunOS libc,
 HP-UX 11.11 libc

What's new in CJKCodecs 1.0.2:

  *) Fixed unfriendly behavior that str.encode encodes from in-memory
     represention of unicode object directly. Codecs now decode as default
     encoding before encoding str object.

  *) "-strict" flavored codecs are added. While main codecs include several
     tweaks to cope with wild compatibility issues, -strict codecs enable
     pedantic people live a standard life.

  *) SHIFT-JIS codec is now compatible with JapaneseCodecs' by default.
     - U+005C REVERSE SOLIDUS is mapped to SHIFT-JIS 0x5c.
     - U+007E TILDE is mapped to SHIFT-JIS 0x7e.

  *) EUC-JP codec is now compatible with JapaneseCodecs' by default.
     - U+00A5 YEN SIGN is mapped to EUC-JP 0x5c. (one way)
     - U+203E OVERLINE is mapped to EUC-JP 0x7e. (one way)

  *) Several aliases are added for compatibility.
     - ISO-2022-JP-1: ISO-2022-JP-EXT
     - BIG5: BIG5-TW
     - GB2312: EUCGB2312-CN

Also what's new in iconvcodec 1.1.2:

  *) Fixed a bug that decoders' returning u'' not (u'', 0) when decoding
     empty string. [Tae-Wook Kang]

  *) Use libc's by default in linux.
