XIST 2.13 has been released!
What is it?
XIST is an extensible HTML/XML generator written in Python. XIST is
also a DOM parser (built on top of SAX2) with a very simple and
Pythonesque tree API. Every XML element type corresponds to a Python
class, and these Python classes provide a conversion method to transform
the XML tree (e.g. into HTML). XIST can be considered "object oriented XSL".
What's new in version 2.13?
* ll.xist.xsc.Namespace.tokenize() requires a unicode object as input
now. This makes it possible to use encodings that are not ASCII
compatible (such as UTF-16). The encoding argument is gone.
* ll.xist.xsc.Node.asString() uses the encoding argument to determine
which characters have to be output as character references now.
(You'll still get a unicode object as the result.)
* A new processing instruction class ll.xist.ns.specials.literal
has been added, that will output it's content literally when
published. This can be used for embedding preformatted XML (e.g.
from a database) into an XIST tree.
What's new in version 2.12?
* Namespaces for Relax NG and Kid have been added.
* XIST requires version 1.0 of the core package now.
* The class name for the DocBook DTD class has been fixed.
