 Announcing PyYAML-3.13

A new bug fix release of PyYAML is now available:


*** Important Note From Maintainers ***

This is the first PyYAML release by the new maintainers. It was made
because PyYAML-3.12 did not work with the recent Python 3.7 release.

A more ambitious 4.1 release was attempted last week and needed to be
for many reasons. We apologize any pain caused by the 4.1 removal, but we
remain confident that it was the best decision.

There are over 60 pull requests in PyYAML and LibYAML that will be
in the upcoming 4.2 release and we are working hard to get those to you as
as the release is ready (but no sooner :).

We are are excited that the PyYAML project is moving forward again.

-- The PyYAML Maintenance Team


* Rebuilt with the latest Cython to support the new Python 3.7 release.
* No functionality is different from PyYAML 3.12 in this release.

About PyYAML

YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
interaction with scripting languages. PyYAML is a YAML parser and emitter

PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle support,
capable extension API, and sensible error messages. PyYAML supports standard
YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow to represent an
arbitrary Python object.

PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex configuration
files to object serialization and persistance.
