what is it
A Python package to parse and build CSS Cascading Style Sheets. (Not a 
renderer though!)

about this release
0.9.7b3 is a beta release but quite stable.

main changes
0.9.7b3 100620
     + API CHANGE: Changed parameters of script/utility function 
             - parameter ``resolveVariables=True`` now (default was 
``False`` before)
             - ``minify = True`` will not parse Comments at all. This is 
not really a change as comments were not kept in a minified stylesheet 
anyway but this may speed up stylesheet combination a bit

     + **PERFORMANCE/IMPROVEMENT**: Added parameter 
``parseComments=True`` to CSSParser. If parsing with ``parser = 
cssutils.CSSParser(parseComments=False).parse...`` comments in a given 
stylesheet are simple omitted from the resulting stylesheet DOM.

     + **PERFORMANCE**: Compiled productions in cssutils tokenizer are 
cached now (to clear it use 
``cssutils.tokenize2._TOKENIZER_CACHE.clear()``) which results in a 
slight performance improvement. Thanks to moscovich!
