    ANNOUNCING:

    eGenix.com mx Experimental Extension Package
    for Python 1.5.2 - 2.3
    Version 0.8.0

    Experimental Python extensions providing important and useful
    services for Python programmers.


    ________________________________________________________________________

    WHAT IS IT ?:

    The eGenix.com mx Experimental Extensions for Python are a collection
    of alpha and beta quality software tools for Python which will be
    integrated into the other mx Extension Packages after they have
    matured to professional quality tools.

    Python is an object-oriented Open Source programming language which
    runs on all modern platforms (http://www.python.org/). By integrating
    ease-of-use, clarity in coding, enterprise application connectivity
    and rapid application design, Python establishes an ideal programming
    platform for todays IT challenges.

    ________________________________________________________________________

    WHAT'S NEW ?

    The new version includes patches needed to compile the packages
    under Python 2.3.

    As always we are providing precompiled versions of the package for
    Windows and Linux as well as sources which allow you to install the
    package on all other supported platforms.

    EGENIX.COM MX EXPERIMENTAL PACKAGE OVERVIEW:


    mxNumber - Python Interface to GNU MP Number Types

    mxNumber provides direct access to the high performance numeric
    types available in the GNU Multi-Precision Lib (GMP). This
    library is licensed under the LGPL and runs on practically all
    Unix platforms. eGenix.com has ported the GMP lib to Windows, to
    also provide our Windows users with the added benefit of being
    able to do arbitrary precision calculations.

    The package currently provide these numerical types:

    1. Integer(value) -- arbitrary precision integers much like
    Python longs only faster
    2. Rational(nom,denom) -- rational numbers with Integers as
    numerator and denominator
    3. Float(value[,prec]) -- floating point number with at least
    prec bits precision
    4. FareyRational(value, maxden)
    -- calculate the best rational represenation
    n/d of value such that d < maxden

    mxTidy - Interface to HTML Tidy (HTML/XML cleanup tool)

    mxTidy provides a Python interface to a thread-safe, library
    version of the HTML Tidy. command line tool.

    HTML Tidy helps you to cleanup coding errors in HTML and XML
    files and produce well-formed HTML, XHTML or XML as output. This
    allows you to preprocess web-page for inclusion in XML
    repositories, prepare broken XML files for validation and also
    makes it possible to write converters from well-known word
    processing applications such as MS Word to other structured data
    representations by using XML as intermediate format.

    mxURL - A URL Datatype

    mxURL provides a new datatype for storing and manipulating URL
    values as well as a few helpers related to URL building, encoding
    and decoding.

    The main intention of the package is to provide an easy to use,
    fast and lightwheight datatype for Universal Resource Locators
    (note the W3C now calls these URIs).

    mxUID - A UID Datatype

    mxUID provides a fast mechanism for generating universal
    identification strings (UIDs). The intent is to make these UIDs
    unique with high probability in order to serve as object or data
    set identifiers.

    A typical use lies in generating session IDs. Other areas where
    unique IDs play an important role are RPC-implementations,
    ORBs, etc.
