- Remove old source file

Tue Aug 13 09:58:19 UTC 2013 -

- update to 3.2.3:
* LP#1185701: spurious XMLSyntaxError after finishing iterparse().
* Crash in lxml.objectify during xsi annotation.

Mon May 13 08:34:19 UTC 2013 -

- update to 3.2.1:
* The methods ``apply_templates()`` and ``process_children()`` of XSLT
  extension elements have gained two new boolean options ``elements_only``
  and ``remove_blank_text`` that discard either all strings or whitespace-only
  strings from the result list.
* When moving Elements to another tree, the namespace cleanup mechanism
  no longer drops namespace prefixes from attributes for which it finds
  a default namespace declaration, to prevent them from appearing as
  unnamespaced attributes after serialisation.
* Returning non-type objects from a custom class lookup method could lead
  to a crash.
* Instantiating and using subtypes of Comments and ProcessingInstructions

Mon Apr 29 12:25:39 UTC 2013 -

- update to 3.2.0:
  * Leading whitespace could change the behaviour of the string
  parsing functions in ``lxml.html``.
  * LP#599318: The string parsing functions in ``lxml.html`` are more robust
  in the face of uncommon HTML content like framesets or missing body tags.
  Patch by Stefan Seelmann.
  * LP#712941: I/O errors while trying to access files with paths that contain
  non-ASCII characters could raise ``UnicodeDecodeError`` instead of properly
  reporting the ``IOError``.
  * LP#673205: Parsing from in-memory strings disabled network access in the
  default parser and made subsequent attempts to parse from a URL fail.
  * LP#971754: lxml.html.clean appends 'nofollow' to 'rel' attributes instead
  of overwriting the current value.
  * LP#715687: lxml.html.clean no longer discards scripts that are explicitly
  allowed by the user provided whitelist.  Patch by Christine Koppelt.

Sat Mar 30 17:29:03 UTC 2013 -

- update to 3.1.1:
  (changes taken from

   * 3.1.1 (2013-03-29)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - LP#1160386: Write access to lxml.html.FormElement.fields raised an AttributeError in Py3.
      - Illegal memory access during cleanup in incremental xmlfile writer.
   ** Other changes
      - The externally useless class lxml.etree._BaseParser was removed from the module dict.

   * 3.1.0 (2013-02-10)
   ** Features added
      - GH#89: lxml.html.clean allows overriding the set of attributes that it considers 'safe'.
        Patch by Francis Devereux.
   ** Bugs fixed
      - LP#1104370: copy.copy(el.attrib) raised an exception. It now returns a copy of the
        attributes as a plain Python dict.
      - GH#95: When used with namespace prefixes, the el.find*() methods always used the first
        namespace mapping that was provided for each path expression instead of using the one that
	was actually passed in for the current run.
      - LP#1092521, GH#91: Fix undefined C symbol in Python runtimes compiled without threading
        support. Patch by Ulrich Seidl.

   * 3.1beta1 (2012-12-21)
   ** Features added
      - New build-time option --with-unicode-strings for Python 2 that makes the API always
        return Unicode strings for names and text instead of byte strings for plain ASCII content.
      - New incremental XML file writing API etree.xmlfile().
      - E factory in lxml.objectify is callable to simplify the creation of tags with
        non-identifier names without having to resort to getattr().
   ** Bugs fixed
      - When starting from a non-namespaced element in lxml.objectify, searching for a
        child without explicitly specifying a namespace incorrectly found namespaced
	elements with the requested local name, instead of restricting the search to
	non-namespaced children.
      - GH#85: Deprecation warnings were fixed for Python 3.x.
      - GH#33: lxml.html.fromstring() failed to accept bytes input in Py3.
      - LP#1080792: Static build of libxml2 2.9.0 failed due to missing file.
   ** Other changes
      - The externally useless class _ObjectifyElementMakerCaller was removed from the
        module API of lxml.objectify.
      - LP#1075622: lxml.builder is faster for adding text to elements with many children.
        Patch by Anders Hammarquist.

   * 3.0.2 (2012-12-14)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - Fix crash during interpreter shutdown by switching to Cython 0.17.3 for building.

   * 3.0.1 (2012-10-14)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - LP#1065924: Element proxies could disappear during garbage collection in PyPy
        without proper cleanup.
      - GH#71: Failure to work with libxml2 2.6.x.
      - LP#1065139: static MacOS-X build failed in Py3.

   * 3.0 (2012-10-08)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - End-of-file handling was incorrect in iterparse() when reading from a low-level
        C file stream and failed in libxml2 2.9.0 due to its improved consistency checks.
   ** Other changes
      - The build no longer uses Cython by default unless the generated C files are
        missing. To use Cython, pass the option "--with-cython". To ignore the fatal build
	error when Cython is required but not available (e.g. to run special
	commands that do not actually run a build), pass "--without-cython".

   * 3.0beta1 (2012-09-26)
   ** Features added
      - Python level access to (optional) libxml2 memory debugging features to simplify
        debugging of memory leaks etc.
   ** Bugs fixed
      - Fix a memory leak in XPath by switching to Cython 0.17.1.
      - Some tests were adapted to work with PyPy.
   ** Other changes
      - The code was adapted to work with the upcoming libxml2 2.9.0 release.

   * 3.0alpha2 (2012-08-23)
   ** Features added
      - The .iter() method of elements now accepts tag arguments like "{*}name" to search
        for elements with a given local name in any namespace. With this addition, all
        combinations of wildcards now work as expected: "{ns}name", "{}name", "{*}name",
	"{ns}*", "{}*" and "{*}*". Note that "name" is equivalent to "{}name", but "*" is
        "{*}*". The same change applies to the .getiterator(), .itersiblings(), .iterancestors(),
	.iterdescendants(), .iterchildren() and .itertext() methods;the strip_attributes(),
	strip_elements() and strip_tags() functions as well as the iterparse() class.
	Patch by Simon Sapin.
      - C14N allows specifying the inclusive prefixes to be promoted to top-level during
        exclusive serialisation.
   ** Bugs fixed
      - Passing long Unicode strings into the feed() parser interface failed to read the entire string.

   * 3.0alpha1 (2012-07-31)
   ** Features added
      - Initial support for building in PyPy (through cpyext).
      - DTD objects gained an API that allows read access to their declarations.
      - gained support for parsing line-by-line (e.g. from grep output) and
        for surrounding the output with a new root tag.
      - E-factory in lxml.builder accepts subtypes of known data types (such as string
        subtypes) when building elements around them.
      - Tree iteration and iterparse() with a selective tag argument supports passing a
        set of tags. Tree nodes will be returned by the iterators if they match any of the tags.
   ** Bugs fixed
      - The .find*() methods in lxml.objectify no longer use XPath internally, which makes
        them faster in many cases (especially when short circuiting after a single or
	couple of elements) and fixes some behavioural differences compared to lxml.etree.
	Note that this means that they no longer support arbitrary XPath expressions but
	only the subset that the ElementPath language supports. The previous implementation
	was also redundant with the normal XPath support, which can be used as a replacement.
      - el.find('*') could accidentally return a comment or processing instruction that
        happened to be in the wrong spot. (Same for the other .find*() methods.)
      - The error logging is less intrusive and avoids a global setup where possible.
      - Fixed undefined names in html5lib parser.
      - did not work in Python 3.
      - Element.attrib.update() did not accept an attrib of another Element as parameter.
      - For subtypes of ElementBase that make the .text or .tail properties immutable (as in
        objectify, for example), inserting text when creating Elements through the E-Factory
	feature of the class constructor would fail with an exception, stating that the text
	cannot be modified.
   ** Other changes
      - The code base was overhauled to properly use 'const' where the API of libxml2 anders
        libxslt requests it. This also has an impact on the public C-API of lxml itself, as
	defined in etreepublic.pxd, as well as the provided declarations in the lxml/includes/
	directory. Code that uses these declarations may have to be adapted. On the plus side,
	this fixes several C compiler warnings, also for user code, thus making it easier to
	spot real problems again.
      - The functionality of "lxml.cssselect" was moved into a separate PyPI package called
        "cssselect". To continue using it, you must install that package separately. The
	"lxml.cssselect" module is still available and provides the same interface, provided
	the "cssselect" package can be imported at runtime.
      - Element attributes passed in as an attrib dict or as keyword arguments are now sorted
        by (namespaced) name before being created to make their order predictable for
	serialisation and iteration. Note that adding or deleting attributes afterwards does
	not take that order into account, i.e. setting a new attribute appends it after the
	existing ones.
      - Several classes that are for internal use only were removed from the lxml.etree module
        dict: _InputDocument, _ResolverRegistry, _ResolverContext, _BaseContext, _ExsltRegExp,
	_IterparseContext, _TempStore, _ExceptionContext, __ContentOnlyElement, _AttribIterator,
	_NamespaceRegistry, _ClassNamespaceRegistry, _FunctionNamespaceRegistry,
	_XPathFunctionNamespaceRegistry, _ParserDictionaryContext, _FileReaderContext,
	_ParserContext, _PythonSaxParserTarget, _TargetParserContext, _ReadOnlyProxy,
	_ReadOnlyPIProxy, _ReadOnlyEntityProxy, _ReadOnlyElementProxy, _OpaqueNodeWrapper,
	_OpaqueDocumentWrapper, _ModifyContentOnlyProxy, _ModifyContentOnlyPIProxy,
	_ModifyContentOnlyEntityProxy, _AppendOnlyElementProxy, _SaxParserContext,
	_FilelikeWriter, _ParserSchemaValidationContext, _XPathContext, _XSLTResolverContext,
	_XSLTContext, _XSLTQuotedStringParam
      - Several internal classes can no longer be inherited from: _InputDocument,
        _ResolverRegistry, _ExsltRegExp, _ElementUnicodeResult, _IterparseContext, _TempStore,
	_AttribIterator, _ClassNamespaceRegistry, _XPathFunctionNamespaceRegistry,
	_ParserDictionaryContext, _FileReaderContext, _PythonSaxParserTarget,
	_TargetParserContext, _ReadOnlyPIProxy, _ReadOnlyEntityProxy, _OpaqueDocumentWrapper,
	_ModifyContentOnlyPIProxy, _ModifyContentOnlyEntityProxy, _AppendOnlyElementProxy,
	_FilelikeWriter, _ParserSchemaValidationContext, _XPathContext, _XSLTResolverContext,
	_XSLTContext, _XSLTQuotedStringParam, _XSLTResultTree, _XSLTProcessingInstruction

   * 2.3.6 (2012-09-28)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - Passing long Unicode strings into the feed() parser interface failed to read the
        entire string.

   * 2.3.5 (2012-07-31)
   ** Bugs fixed
      - Crash when merging text nodes in element.remove().
      - Crash in sax/target parser when reporting empty doctype.

- BuildRequire libxml2-devel instead of pkconfi() to allow building
  on SLE_11_SP2

Mon Jun  4 20:55:38 UTC 2012 -

- Update to version 2.3.4; bugs fixed:
  * Crash due to race condition when errors (or user messages) occur during
    threaded XSLT processing.
  * XSLT stylesheet compilation could ignore compilation errors.
- Exclude etree_defs.h from RPM

Thu May 24 08:06:36 UTC 2012 -

- python3 package added
- minor spec adjustments

Fri Mar  9 20:57:25 UTC 2012 -

- Update to version 2.3.3:
  * lxml.html.tostring() gained new serialisation options with_tail and doctype.
  * Fixed a crash when using iterparse() for HTML parsing and requesting start events.
  * Fixed parsing of more selectors in cssselect. Whitespace before
    pseudo-elements and pseudo-classes is significant as it is a descendant
    combinator. "E :pseudo" should parse the same as "E *:pseudo", not "E:pseudo".
  * lxml.html.diff no longer raises an exception when hitting 'img' tags without 'src' attribute.
- Changes from version 2.3.2:
  * lxml.objectify.deannotate() has a new boolean option cleanup_namespaces to
    remove the objectify namespace declarations (and generally clean up the
    namespace declarations) after removing the type annotations.
  * lxml.objectify gained its own SubElement() function as a copy of
    etree.SubElement to avoid an otherwise redundant import of lxml.etree on the user side.
  * Fixed the "descendant" bug in cssselect a second time
  * Fixed parsing of some selectors in cssselect.
- Changes from version 2.3.1:
  * New option kill_tags in lxml.html.clean to remove specific tags and their
    content (i.e. their whole subtree).
  * pi.get() and pi.attrib on processing instructions to parse
    pseudo-attributes from the text content of processing instructions.
  * lxml.get_include() returns a list of include paths that can be used to
    compile external C code against lxml.etree.
  * Resolver.resolve_file() takes an additional option close_file that
    configures if the file(-like) object will be closed after reading or not.
  * HTML cleaning didn't remove 'data:' links.
  * The html5lib parser integration now uses the 'official' implementation in
    html5lib itself, which makes it work with newer releases of the library.
  * In lxml.sax, endElementNS() could incorrectly reject a plain tag name when
    the corresponding start event inferred the same plain tag name to be in the default namespace.
  * When an open file-like object is passed into parse() or iterparse(), the
    parser will no longer close it after use.
  * Assertion error in lxml.html.cleaner when discarding top-level elements.
  * In lxml.cssselect, use the xpath 'A//B' (short for
    'A/descendant-or-self::node()/B') instead of 'A/descendant::B' for the css
    descendant selector ('A B').
  * In lxml.html, non-selected <option> tags no longer show up in the collected form values.
  * Adding/removing <option> values to/from a multiple select form field
    properly selects them and unselects them.
- Explicitly build against libxml2-devel

Thu Mar  3 08:37:49 UTC 2011 -

- Update to 2.3 (2011-03-03):
  Features added
   * When looking for children, lxml.objectify takes '{}tag' as
     meaning an empty namespace, as opposed to the parent namespace.

  Bugs fixed
    * When finished reading from a file-like object, the parser
      immediately calls its close() method.
    * When finished parsing, iterparse() immediately closes the input
    * Work-around for libxml2 bug that can leave the HTML parser in a
      non-functional state after parsing a severly broken document (fixed
      in libxml2 2.7.8).
    * marque tag in HTML cleanup code is correctly named marquee.

Mon Dec  6 13:33:31 UTC 2010 -

Mon Mar  1 21:56:05 UTC 2010 -

- Updated to 2.2.5 (2010-02-28):
  Features added
    * Support for running XSLT extension elements on the input root
      node (e.g. in a template matching on "/").

  Bugs fixed
    * Crash in XPath evaluation when reading smart strings from a
      document other than the original context document.
    * Support recent versions of html5lib by not requiring its
      XHTMLParser in anymore.
    * Manually instantiating the custom element classes in
      lxml.objectify could crash.
    * Invalid XML text characters were not rejected by the API when
      they appeared in unicode strings directly after non-ASCII characters.
    * lxml.html.open_http_urllib() did not work in Python 3.
    * The functions strip_tags() and strip_elements() in lxml.etree
      did not remove all occurrences of a tag in all cases.
    * Crash in XSLT extension elements when the XSLT context
      node is not an element.

- Fixed .changes file to match order from factory

Fri Nov 13 21:50:52 UTC 2009 -

- Updated to 2.2.4 (2009-11-11):
  Features added
    * None

  Bugs fixed
    * Static build of libxml2/libxslt was broken.

Fri Oct 30 17:25:06 UTC 2009 -

- Updated to 2.2.3 (2009-10-30):
  Features added
  Bugs fixed
    * The resolve_entities option did not work in the incremental
      feed parser.
    * Looking up and deleting attributes without a namespace could
      hit a namespaced attribute of the same name instead.
    * Late errors during calls to SubElement() (e.g. attribute related
      ones) could leave a partially initialised element in the tree.
    * Modifying trees that contain parsed entity references could result
      in an infinite loop.
    * ObjectifiedElement.__setattr__ created an empty-string child
      element when the attribute value was rejected as a non-unicode/non-ascii string
    * Syntax errors in lxml.cssselect could result in misleading error messages.
    * Invalid syntax in CSS expressions could lead to an infinite loop
      in the parser of lxml.cssselect.
    * CSS special character escapes were not properly handled in lxml.cssselect.
    * CSS Unicode escapes were not properly decoded in lxml.cssselect.
    * Select options in HTML forms that had no explicit value attribute
      were not handled correctly. The HTML standard dictates that their value
      is defined by their text content. This is now supported by lxml.html.
    * XPath raised a TypeError when finding CDATA sections. This is now fully supported.
    * Calling help(lxml.objectify) didn't work at the prompt.
    * The ElementMaker in lxml.objectify no longer defines the default namespaces
      when annotation is disabled.
    * Feed parser failed to honour the 'recover' option on parse errors.
    * Diverting the error logging to Python's logging system was broken.

Wed Sep 23 17:37:53 CEST 2009 -

- Improved spec file with help from Alexandre D. Rogoski. Thanks!
  (debug_package macro)

Mon Jul 20 14:04:56 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to 2.2.2 (2009-06-21):
  Features added
    * New helper functions strip_attributes(), strip_elements(),
      strip_tags() in lxml.etree to remove attributes/subtrees/tags
      from a subtree.

  Bugs fixed
    * Namespace cleanup on subtree insertions could result in missing
      namespace declarations (and potentially crashes) if the element
      defining a namespace was deleted and the namespace was not used
      by the top element of the inserted subtree but only in deeper
    * Raising an exception from a parser target callback didn't always
      terminate the parser.
    * Only {true, false, 1, 0} are accepted as the lexical representation
      for BoolElement ({True, False, T, F, t, f} not any more),
      restoring lxml <= 2.0 behaviour.

Wed Jun 03 10:47:00 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to 2.2.1:
  Features added:
    * Injecting default attributes into a document during XML Schema
      validation (also at parse time).
    * Pass huge_tree parser option to disable parser security restrictions
      imposed by libxml2 2.7.

  Bugs fixed
    * The script for statically building libxml2 and libxslt didn't work in Py3.
    * XMLSchema() also passes invalid schema documents on to libxml2 for
      parsing (which could lead to a crash before release 2.6.24).

Full list:

Fri Apr 03 08:41:00 CEST 2009 -

- Merged changes file with old entries

Wed Apr 02 08:58:00 CEST 2009 -

- Added rpmlintrc source into SPEC file

Tue Mar 31 08:34:00 CEST 2009 -

Wed Mar 23 12:56:00 CEST 2009 -

* Updated to 2.2 (excerpt):
  See also

  Features added:
  - Allow lxml.html.diff.htmldiff to accept Element objects,
    not just HTML strings.
  - XSLT.strparam() class method to wrap quoted string parameters
    that require escaping.
  - Support strings and instantiable Element classes as child
    arguments to the constructor of custom Element classes.
  - GZip compression support for serialisation to files and
    file-like objects.
  - Support for standalone flag in XML declaration through
    tree.docinfo.standalone and by passing standalone=True/False
    on serialisation.

  Bugs fixed:
  - Memory leak in XPath evaluators.
  - Setting the base attribute in lxml.objectify from a unicode
    string failed.
  - Crash when parsing indented XML in one thread and merging
    it with other documents parsed in another thread.
  - Crash when parsing an XML Schema with external imports from
    a filename.
  - iter_links (and related link-rewriting functions) in lxml.html
    would interpret CSS like url("link") incorrectly (treating the
    quotation marks as part of the link).
  - Failing import on systems that have an io module.
  - Potential memory leak on exception handling. This was due
    to a problem in Cython, not lxml itself.
  - Crash when using an XPath evaluator in multiple threads.
  - Fixed missing whitespace before Link:... in lxml.html.diff.

  Other changes
  - The global error log (which is copied into the exception log)
    is now local to a thread, which fixes some race conditions.
  - More robust error handling on serialisation.
  - Export lxml.html.parse.

Wed Sep 18 10:00:00 CEST 2008 -

- Updated to 2.1.2
  Features added
  * lxml.etree now tries to find the absolute path name of files
    when parsing from a file-like object. This helps custom resolvers
    when resolving relative URLs, as lixbml2 can prepend them with
    the path of the source document.

  Bugs fixed
  * Memory problem when passing documents between threads.
  * Target parser did not honour the recover option and raised an
    exception instead of calling .close() on the target.

Wed Jul 30 07:47:00 CEST 2008 -

- Updated to 2.1.1
  Features added:
  * No new features
  Bugs fixed
  * Crash when parsing XSLT stylesheets in a thread and using them
    in another.
  * Encoding problem when including text with ElementInclude under
    Python 3.

Wed Jul 09 16:21:00 CEST 2008 -

- Corrected SPEC file:
  * requires now libxml2 and libxslt
  * Cleaned up spec file, added %{py_requires}
  * Inserted PDF documentation
- Updated to 2.1:
  Features added
  * Smart strings can be switched off in XPath (smart_string keyword option).
  * lxml.html.rewrite_links() strips links to work around documents with
    whitespace in URL attributes.

  Bugs fixed
  * Custom resolvers were not used for XMLSchema includes/imports and
    XInclude processing.
  * CSS selector parser dropped remaining expression after a function
    with parameters.

- Other changes
  * objectify.enableRecursiveStr() was removed, use objectify.enable_recursive_str()
  * Speed-up when running XSLTs on documents from other threads

Fri Jun 20 11:23:00 CEST 2008 -

- Updated to 2.0.7:
- Features added:
  * Pickling ElementTree objects in lxml.objectify.
- Bugs fixed:
  * Descending dot-separated classes in CSS selectors were not
    resolved correctly.
  * ElementTree.parse() didn't handle target parser result.
  * Potential threading problem in XInclude.
  * Crash in Element class lookup classes when the __init__()
    method of the super class is not called from Python subclasses.
- Other changes:
  * Non-ASCII characters in attribute values are no longer escaped on serialisation.

- Changes from 2.0.6:
- Features added:
  * No new features
- Bugs fixed
  * Incorrect evaluation of el.find("tag[child]").
  * Windows build was broken.
  * Moving a subtree from a document created in one thread into a
    document of another thread could crash when the rest of the
    source document is deleted while the subtree is still in use.
  * Rare crash when serialising to a file object with certain encodings.
- Other changes:
  * lxml should now build without problems on MacOS-X (2.0.6)

Wed May 15 08:37:00 CEST 2008 -

- Split documentation into subpackage python-lxml-doc
- Updated to 2.0.3
- Features added
  - soupparser.parse() allows passing keyword arguments on to
  - fromstring() method in lxml.html.soupparser.

- Bugs fixed:
  - lxml.html.diff didn't treat empty tags properly (e.g., <br>).
  - Handle entity replacements correctly in target parser.
  - Crash when using iterparse() with XML Schema validation.
  - The BeautifulSoup parser ( did not replace entities,
    which made them turn up in text content.
  - Attribute assignment of custom PyTypes in objectify could fail
    to correctly serialise the value to a string.

- Other changes
  - lxml.html.ElementSoup was replaced by a new module lxml.html.soupparser
    with a more consistent API. The old module remains for
    compatibility with ElementTree's own ElementSoup module.
  - Setting the XSLT_CONFIG and XML2_CONFIG environment variables at
    build time will let pick up the xml2-config and xslt-config
    scripts from the supplied path name.
  - Passing --with-xml2-config=/path/to/xml2-config to will
    override the xml2-config script that is used to determine the
    C compiler options. The same applies for the --with-xslt-config option.

- Updated to 1.3.6
- Bugs fixed
  - Backported decref crash fix from 2.0
  - Well hidden free-while-in-use crash bug in ObjectPath

- Other changes
  - The test suites now run gc.collect() in the tearDown() methods.
    While this makes them take a lot longer to run, it also makes
    it easier to link a specific test to garbage collection problems
    that would otherwise appear in later tests.

- Updated to 1.3.4
- Features added
  - The ElementMaker in lxml.builder now accepts the keyword arguments
    namespace and nsmap to set a namespace and nsmap for the Elements
    it creates.
  - The docinfo on ElementTree objects has new properties internalDTD
    and externalDTD that return a DTD object for the internal or external
    subset of the document respectively.
  - Serialising an ElementTree now includes any internal DTD subsets
    that are part of the document, as well as comments and PIs that are
    siblings of the root node.

- Bugs fixed
  - Parsing with the no_network option could fail

- Other changes
  - lxml now raises a TagNameWarning about tag names containing ':' instead
    of an Error as 1.3.3 did. The reason is that a number of projects
    currently misuse the previous lack of tag name validation to generate
    namespace prefixes without declaring namespaces. Apart from the danger
    of generating broken XML this way, it also breaks most of the
    namespace-aware tools in XML, including XPath, XSLT and validation.
    lxml 1.3.x will continue to support this bug with a Warning, while lxml
    2.0 will be strict about well-formed tag names (not only regarding ':').
  - Serialising an Element no longer includes its comment and PI siblings
    (only ElementTree serialisation includes them).

- Updated to 1.3.3
- Features added:
  - ElementTree compatible parser ETCompatXMLParser strips
    processing instructions and comments while parsing XML
  - Parsers now support stripping PIs (keyword argument 'remove_pis')
  - etree.fromstring() now supports parsing both HTML and XML,
    depending on the parser you pass
  - Support base_url keyword argument in HTML() and XML()

- Bugs fixed:
  - Parsing from Python Unicode strings failed on some platforms
  - Element() did not raise an exception on tag names containing ':'
  - Element.getiterator(tag) did not accept Comment and ProcessingInstruction
    as tags. It also accepts Element now.

  - Data elements in objectify support repr(), which is now used by dump()
  - Source distribution now ships with a patched Pyrex
  - New C-API function makeElement() to create new elements with text, tail, attributes and namespaces
  - Reuse original parser flags for XInclude
  - Simplified support for handling XSLT processing instructions

  - Open files and XML strings returned by Python resolvers were not closed/freed
  - Crash in the IDDict returned by XMLDTDID
  - Copying Comments and ProcessingInstructions failed
  - Memory leak for external URLs in _XSLTProcessingInstruction.parseXSL()
  - Memory leak when garbage collecting tailed root elements
  - HTML script/style content was not propagated to .text
  - Show text xincluded between text nodes correctly in .text and .tail
