Version 0.6.4 of the Python/XML distribution is now available. It
should be considered a beta release, and can be downloaded from
the following URLs:
Changes in this version, compared to 0.6.3:
* 4DOM was integrated from 4Suite 0.10.2. 4DOM is now
maintained as a part of PyXML. A detailed list of changes can
be found in xml/dom/ChangeLog.
* minidom now supports the standard methods isSameNode and
hasAttributes, and the extension toprettyxml. A number of
bugs have been fixed
* A DOM implementation registration is now available (functions
getDOMImplementation and registerDOMImplementation in xml.dom).
* If expat 1.95.x is available on the system, this is used instead
of the included expat copy; it will then offer additional handlers.
* A pyexpat parser can now return the attributes ordered, and
restrict the attribute list to the specified attributes.
* The xmllib SAX1 driver now generates Unicode strings in
* The xml.unicode emulation was extended to support bidirectional
conversion, and to support a few more aliases.
The Python/XML distribution contains the basic tools required for
processing XML data using the Python programming language, assembled
into one easy-to-install package. The distribution includes parsers
and standard interfaces such as SAX and DOM, along with various other
useful modules. =20
The package currently contains:
* XML parsers: Pyexpat (Jack Jansen), xmlproc (Lars Marius
Garshol), sgmlop (Fredrik Lundh).
* SAX interface (Lars Marius Garshol)
* minidom DOM implementation (Paul Prescod)
* 4DOM from Fourthought (Uche Ogbuji, Mike Olson)
* Various utility modules and functions (various people)
* Documentation and example programs (various people)
The code is being developed bazaar-style by contributors from the
Python XML Special Interest Group, so please send comments, questions,
or bug reports to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
