Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the release of lxml 2.2 final.



What is lxml?

lxml is the most feature-rich and easy-to-use library for working with XML
and HTML in the Python language. It's also amongst the fastest and most
memory friendly XML tree libraries for Python.

lxml is a pythonic, mature binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries
that provides safe and convenient access to these libraries using the
ElementTree API. It extends the ElementTree API significantly to offer
support for XPath, RelaxNG, XML Schema, XSLT, C14N and much more.

This release

This is a major new, stable and mature release that takes over the stable
2.x release series. All previous 2.x releases are now officially out of

It includes a large number of bug fixes and improvements that make lxml 2.2
a lot more robust than the previous 2.1 and older releases. It is therefore
generally worth upgrading (and it should not be too hard to do that).

This release was built with Cython 0.11 final and supports Python 2.3
through 3.1 alpha1.

Have fun,
