xlrd 0.9.1 released!


Chris Withers

Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce the release of xlrd 0.9.1:


This release includes the following changes:

- A tonne of bugs when used with Python 3 were fixed thanks to John Machin.

- Extra byte data in hyperlink records now records a warning rather than
raising an exception.

- Improved handling of aberrant Excel 4.0 Worksheet files

- setup.py and MANIFEST simplifaction along with removal of a tonne of
code that was needed before we dropped support for Python 2.5 and below.
Thanks to Thomas Kluyver to the commits.

- Removed vestiges of support for pickleable Book objects. This hasn't
worked for some time, so the options to support it have gone.

If you find any problems, please ask about them on the
(e-mail address removed) list, or submit an issue on GitHub:
