This release adds namespace support and a whitespace stripping rule. 
There has ben some internal restructuring.
Anobind is a Python/XML data binding, which is just a fancy way of
saying it's a very Pythonic XML API.
You feed Anobind an XML document and it returns a data structure of
corresponding Python objects.  For example, the document
  <python spam="eggs">What do you mean "bleh"</python>
  <python ministry="abuse">But I was looking for argument</python>
Would become a set of objects so that you could write

In order to get the value "eggs" or

In order to get the value "But I was looking for argument".

There are other such tools for Python, and what makes Anobind unique is
that it's driven by a very declarative rules-based system for binding
XML to the Python data.  One can register rules that are triggered by
XPatterns or plain Python code in order to register specialized binding

It also offers XPath support and some support for round-tripping

Anobind is open source, provided under the 4Suite variant of the Apache
license.  It requires Python 2.2.2 and 4Suite 1.0a3.
