Version 0.6.2 of the Python/XML distribution is now available. It
should be considered a beta release, and can be downloaded from
the following URLs:
Changes in this version, compared to 0.6.1:
* Synchronize with standard library from Python 2.0
* Updated to 4DOM from 4Suite 0.9.1. This corrects many
errors, see the 4Suite ChangeLog for details. Most notably,
the SAX reader interface has been expanded to support
arbitrary parsers, and a PyExpat reader class was added.
* Add minidom functions: normalize and hasAttribute.
* Fix a number of minor bugs.
* More tests pass now, in particular test_dom, and test/dom/test.
The Python/XML distribution contains the basic tools required for
processing XML data using the Python programming language, assembled
into one easy-to-install package. The distribution includes parsers
and standard interfaces such as SAX and DOM, along with various other
The package currently contains:
* XML parsers: Pyexpat (Jack Jansen), xmlproc (Lars Marius
Garshol), sgmlop (Fredrik Lundh).
* SAX interface (Lars Marius Garshol)
* DOM interface (Stefane Fermigier, A.M. Kuchling)
* 4DOM interface from Fourthought (Uche Ogbuji, Mike Olson)
* Various utility modules and functions (various people)
* Documentation and example programs (various people)
The code is being developed bazaar-style by contributors from the
Python XML Special Interest Group, so please send comments, questions,
