itools is a Python library, it groups a number of packages into a single
meta-package for easier development and deployment:

   itools.catalog        itools.i18n             itools.tmx
   itools.cms            itools.ical             itools.uri
   itools.csv            itools.odf              itools.vfs
   itools.datatypes      itools.pdf              itools.web
   itools.gettext             itools.workflow
   itools.handlers       itools.rss              itools.xhtml
   itools.html           itools.schemas          itools.xliff
   itools.http           itools.stl              itools.xml

The big news in this release is the License upgrade; now itools is
available under the terms and conditions of the GPL version 3.  Check
the LICENSE.txt file.

Also, a bunch of bugs have been fixed.  Some of them have triggered
small backwards incompatible changes; check the UPGRADE-0.16.2 file for
the details.

The package that has changed the most is "itools.stl":

  - Now STL returns by default the stream of events, not the serialized
    byte string. The new parameter "mode" replaces the boolean parameter
    "html", it has four modes: 'events' (default), 'xml', 'xhtml' and

  - Now it is possible to insert a sequence of XML events into "${...}"

  - New public function "set_prefix" that rewrites the relative URLs of
    the given XML events.  Its prototype is "stl(events, prefix)".

  - The main function "stl" accepts a generator or a "Parser" instance
    for the "events" parameter (not only a list).  It also accepts a byte
    string for the "prefix" parameter (not only a "Path" instance).

  - Fix when "stl:repeat" and "stl:if" expressions are together in the
    same element.

Other changes worth to mention are:

  - Reorganize the RELEASE and UPDATE files.  The old ones are kept on
    the "doc" folder.

  - [itools.catalog] Fix "", without parameters it
    returns all indexed documents.

  - [itools.cms] Various minor fixes for the user interface (Wiki, web
    pages view, search form, folder's browse view, login form, user's
    edit account form and CSS).

  - [itools.handlers] Fix "has_handler(path)" for special paths, like

  - [itools.i18n] Rewrite the accept module.  Much simpler, now language
    negotiation behaves as defined by RFC2616.  And "accept" objects are
    correctly serialized.

  - [itools.pdf] Various RML fixes.

  - [itools.web] The new method "context.get_accept_language" replaces

  - [itools.xhtml] Escape the text nodes when serializing to HTML.
