what is it
A Python package to parse and build CSS Cascading Style Sheets.
main changes since 0.9.3
for full details see the relevant README file
- **FEATURE**: Added a new module ``cssutils.codec`` that registers
a codec that can be used for encoding and decoding CSS.
- **FEATURE**: Added implementation of ``stylesheets.MediaQuery``
which are part of stylesheets.MediaList. See the complete spec at
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/ for details.
+ **API CHANGE**: ``CSSNamespacerule.uri`` is renamed to
``CSSNamespaceRule.namespaceURI`` which is defined is CSSOM. ``uri`` is
deprecated and still available but the constructor parameter is named
``namespaceURI`` in any case now.
+ **API CHANGE**: As ``stylesheets.MediaQuery`` is implemented now
all classes using an instance of ``stylesheets.MediaList`` are presented
slightly different. Until now a simple list of string was given, now the
list contains MediaQuery objects.
+ **API CHANGE**: ``_Property`` has been renamed to
``css.Property`` and is used in context of ``CSSStyleDeclaration`` and
``MediaQuery``. Attribute ``Property.value`` has been *de-deprecated*
and may be used normally now (again). The Property constructor has only
optional parameters now.
+ **API CHANGE**: Removed experimental class
``SameNamePropertyList`` which was used in ``CSSStyleDeclaration`` and
also method ``CSSStyleDeclaration.getSameNamePropertyList``. A new
method ``CSSStyleDeclaration.getProperties()`` has been added which is
simpler and more useful
+ **API CHANGE**: renamed attribute ``namespaces`` of CSSStyleSheet
and Selector to ``prefixes`` as they really are the prefixes of declared
+ BUGFIX: Tantek hack (using ``voice-family``) should work now as
SameNamePropertyList is removed and properties are kept in order
- **CHANGE**: A completely new tokenizer and mostly also the parser
have been reimplemented in this release. Generally it should be much
more robust and more compliant now. It will have new errors and also
some slight details in parsing are changed.
+ **Documentation**: Added some docs in reStructuredText format
including a basic server to view it as HTML. The HTML may be published
cssutils is published under the LGPL.
