Fedora Update Notification
2008-12-17 03:32:57

Name        : python-lxml
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2.1.4
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://codespeak.net/lxml/
Summary     : ElementTree-like Python bindings for libxml2 and libxslt
Description :
lxml provides a Python binding to the libxslt and libxml2 libraries.
It follows the ElementTree API as much as possible in order to provide
a more Pythonic interface to libxml2 and libxslt than the default
bindings.  In particular, lxml deals with Python Unicode strings
rather than encoded UTF-8 and handles memory management automatically,
unlike the default bindings.

Update Information:

Update to 2.1.4

* Fri Dec 12 2008 Jeffrey C. Ollie <jeff at ocjtech.us> - 2.1.4-1
- 2.1.4 (2008-12-12)
- Bugs fixed
-    * Crash when using an XPath evaluator in multiple threads.
* Mon Nov 17 2008 Jeffrey C. Ollie <jeff at ocjtech.us> - 2.1.3-1
- 2.1.3 (2008-11-17)
- Bugs fixed
-    * Ref-count leaks when lxml enters a try-except statement while an
-      outside exception lives in sys.exc_*(). This was due to a problem
-      in Cython, not lxml itself.
-    * Parser Unicode decoding errors could get swallowed by other
-      exceptions.
-    * Name/import errors in some Python modules.
-    * Internal DTD subsets that did not specify a system or public ID
-      were not serialised and did not appear in the docinfo property
-      of ElementTrees.
-    * Fix a pre-Py3k warning when parsing from a gzip file in Py2.6.
-    * Test suite fixes for libxml2 2.7.
-    * Resolver.resolve_string() did not work for non-ASCII byte strings.
-    * Resolver.resolve_file() was broken.
-    * Overriding the parser encoding didn't work for many encodings.
