CJKCodecs 1.1 is released.  CJKCodecs 1.1 is completely reorganized
for new layout of both source and installed modules.  And it also
has got support for CNS-11643, JIS X 0213:2004 and HKSCS.

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.  And CJKCodecs
is now integrated into main Python 2.4 distribution, so you don't
need to install CJKCodecs separatly if you intend to use Python

CJKCodecs is supporting these encodings in this time:

 big5 big5hkscs cp932 cp949 cp950 euc-jis-2004 euc-jisx0213 euc-jp
 euc-kr euc-tw gb18030 gb2312 gbk hz iso-2022-cn iso-2022-jp
 iso-2022-jp-1 iso-2022-jp-2 iso-2022-jp-2004 iso-2022-jp-3
 iso-2022-jp-ext iso-2022-kr johab shift-jis shift-jis-2004
 shift-jisx0213 utf-7 utf-8 utf-16 utf-16-be utf-16-le
