Release Notes: This version adds the method encode_uri() to specifically convert the host name part of a whole URI to Punycode but leave the other components (path, query string, etc.) alone. The code has been cleaned up a little.
Release Notes: A fix to allow complete URIs to be passed has been made. The supplied ReadMe has been renewed. The NamePrep translation tables are now loaded from an external serialized file, which should save execution time and space.
