- Add patch to work with beautifulsoup4-4.7+:
  * bs4-47.patch

Tue Mar  5 16:49:39 UTC 2019 - Tomáš Chvátal <>

- Update to 0.11.0:
  * Constructing a Form instance from a bs4.element.Tag whose tag name is not form will now emit a warning, and may be deprecated in the future. [#228]
  * Breaking Change: LinkNotFoundError now derives from Exception instead of BaseException. While this will bring the behavior in line with most people's expectations, it may affect the behavior of your code if you were heavily relying on this implementation detail in your exception handling. [#203]
  * Improve handling of button submit elements. Will now correctly ignore buttons of type button and reset during form submission, since they are not considered to be submit elements. [#199]
  * Do a better job of inferring the content type of a response if the Content-Type header is not provided. [#195]
  * Improve consistency of query string construction between MechanicalSoup and web browsers in edge cases where form elements have duplicate name attributes. This prevents errors in valid use cases, and also makes MechanicalSoup more tolerant of invalid HTML. [#158]

- Update to Version 0.10
  + Main changes:
    * Added ``StatefulBrowser.refresh()`` to reload the current page with the same request.
    * ``StatefulBrowser.follow_link``,
      ``StatefulBrowser.submit_selected()`` and the new
      ``StatefulBrowser.download_link`` now sets the ``Referer:`` HTTP
      header to the page from which the link is followed.
    * Added method ``StatefulBrowser.download_link``, which will download the
      contents of a link to a file without changing the state of the browser.
    * The ``selector`` argument of ``Browser.select_form`` can now be a
      `bs4.element.Tag <>`__
      in addition to a CSS selector.
    * ``Browser.submit`` and ``StatefulBrowser.submit_selected`` accept a larger
      number of keyword arguments. Arguments are forwarded to
      `requests.Session.request <>`__.
  + Internal changes:
    * ``StatefulBrowser.choose_submit`` will now ignore input elements that are
      missing a name-attribute instead of raising a ``KeyError``.
    * Private methods ``Browser._build_request`` and ``Browser._prepare_request``
      have been replaced by a single method ``Browser._request``.
- Update to Version 0.9
  + Main changes:
    * We do not rely on BeautifulSoup's default choice of HTML parser.
      Instead, we now specify ``lxml`` as default. As a consequence, the
      default setting requires ``lxml`` as a dependency.
    * Python 2.6 and 3.3 are no longer supported.
    * The GitHub URL moved from to @moy and
      @hemberger are now officially administrators of the project in
      addition to @hickford, the original author.
    * We now have a documentation site:
      The API is now fully documented, and we have included a tutorial,
      several more code examples, and a FAQ.
    * ``StatefulBrowser.select_form`` can now be called without argument,
      and defaults to ``"form"`` in this case. It also has a new argument,
      ``nr`` (defaults to 0), which can be used to specify the index of
      the form to select if multiple forms match the selection criteria.
    * We now use requirement files. You can install the dependencies of
      MechanicalSoup with e.g.::
        pip install -r requirements.txt -r tests/requirements.txt
    * The ``Form`` class was restructured and has a new API. The behavior of
      existing code is unchanged, but a new collection of methods has been
      added for clarity and consistency with the ``set`` method:
      - ``set_input`` deprecates ``input``
      - ``set_textarea`` deprecates ``textarea``
      - ``set_select`` is new
      - ``set_checkbox`` and ``set_radio`` together deprecate ``check``
        (checkboxes are handled differently by default)
    * A new ``Form.print_summary`` method allows you to write
      ``browser.get_current_form().print_summary()`` to get a summary of the
      fields you need to fill-in (and which ones are already filled-in).
    * The ``Form`` class now supports selecting multiple options in
      a ``<select multiple>`` element.
  + Bug fixes
    * Checking checkboxes with ``browser["name"] = ("val1", "val2")`` now
      unchecks all checkbox except the ones explicitly specified.
    * ``StatefulBrowser.submit_selected`` and ```` now
      reset __current_page to None when the result is not an HTML page.
      This fixes a bug where __current_page was still the previous page.
    * We don't error out anymore when trying to uncheck a box which
      doesn't have a ``checkbox`` attribute.
    * ``Form.new_control`` now correctly overrides existing elements.
  + Internal changes
    * The testsuite has been further improved and reached 100% coverage.
    * Tests are now run against the local version of MechanicalSoup, not
      aginst the installed version.
    * ``Browser.add_soup`` will now always attach a *soup*-attribute.
      If the response is not text/html, then soup is set to None.
    * ``Form.set(force=True)`` creates an ``<input type=text ...>``
      element instead of an ``<input type=input ...>``.
