I'm pleased to announce the release of the Logilab's ASTNG package.
This package has been extracted from the logilab-common package, which
will be kept for some time for backward compatibility but will no
longer be maintained (this explains that this package is starting with
the 0.13 version number, since the fork occurs with the version
released in logilab-common 0.12).
See below for a description of what's inside...

What's new ?
* .locals  and .globals on scoped node handle now a list of references
  to each assigment statements instead of a single reference to the
  first assigment statement.

* fix bug with manager.astng_from_module_name when a context file is
  given (notably fix ZODB 3.4 crash with pylint/pyreverse)
* fix Compare.as_string method
* fix bug with lambda object missing the "type" attribute

* some minor refactoring

What is astng ?
The aim of this module is to provide a common base representation of
python source code for projects such as pychecker, pyreverse,
pylint... Well, actually the development of this library is essentialy
governed by pylint's needs.

It extends class defined in the compiler.ast module with some
additional methods and attributes. Instance attributes are added by a
builder object, which can either generate extended ast (let's call
them astng ;) by visiting an existant ast tree or by inspecting living
object. Methods are added by monkey patching ast classes.
