========================
  Announcing PyYAML-3.08
========================

A new release of PyYAML is now available:

     http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML

This release features complete support for Python 3.  For
compatibility notes between Python 2 and Python 3 versions,
please see

     http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAMLDocumentation#Python3support


Changes
=======

* Python 3 support (Thank to Erick Tryzelaar).
* Use Cython instead of Pyrex to build LibYAML bindings.  Note
   that the source package is distributed with a pre-generated
   '_yaml.c' file so you don't need Cython installed to build
   LibYAML bindings.
* Refactored support for unicode and byte input/output streams.

About PyYAML
============

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

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.


Example
=======

 >>> import yaml

 >>> yaml.load("""
... name: PyYAML
... description: YAML parser and emitter for Python
... homepage: http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML
... keywords: [YAML, serialization, configuration, persistance, pickle]
... """)
{'keywords': ['YAML', 'serialization', 'configuration', 'persistance',
'pickle'], 'homepage': 'http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML', 'description':
'YAML parser and emitter for Python', 'name': 'PyYAML'}

 >>> print yaml.dump(_)
