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

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

This release includes a new proof-of-concept package, itools.abnf
implements RFC 4234, the "Augmented Backus-Naur Form"; it uses a
Scannerless Generalized-LR algorithm (see Eelco Visser et al).  It
is not yet ready for production use, but taking shape.  See bug #263
[1] for further details.

There has been lots of work on the XML parser, most notably, now it
accepts an open file as the input parameter.  See bug #285 [2] for
further details.

There is also a new dependency, now itools (in particular the XML
parser) requires the GLib library [3], version 2.14 or later.

Many other issues have been addressed, among them now the catalog
is able to index CJK text strings.
