lxml 2.0 released

  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm very happy to announce the official release of lxml 2.0!

    http://codespeak.net/lxml/
    http://pypi.python.org/pypi/lxml/2.0

    ** What is lxml?

    """
    In short: lxml is the most feature-rich and easy-to-use library for working
    with XML and HTML in the Python language.

    lxml is a Pythonic binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries. It is unique
    in that it combines the speed and feature completeness of these libraries with
    the simplicity of a native Python API.
    """

    ** Install lxml 2.0 with

    $ easy_install lxml==2.0

    ** The complete changelog is here:

    http://codespeak.net/lxml/changes-2.0.html

    This release marks the end of a development effort of more than 6 months,
    starting with the release of the last stable series lxml 1.3. The major
    differences are explained on this page:

    http://codespeak.net/lxml/lxml2.html

    lxml 2.0 is not a revolution, it is a gradual move towards a cleaner API with
    more things working together as expected. But it nevertheless comes with a lot
    of new tools and features, that makes your XML life easier - and even more
    your HTML life. There are also a couple of minor things that were deprecated,
    which will be removed for lxml 2.1. See the above link for details.

    The new release has already adopted a lot of changes from the upcoming
    ElementTree 1.3 library, and implements a much broader set of compatible
    features, such as the TreeBuilder interface for parser targets.

    Have fun,
    Stefan
