Release Notes: The new itools.soup package provides a minimal wrapper around the libsoup library. The itools Web server has been rewritten to use this library; the result is better support for the HTTP protocol. Performance of the itools.handlers database system has been much improved.
Release Notes: This release adds a new feature in itools.git, facilities to start a sub-process that will specialize in calling Git commands. This is useful for applications that may take more than a little memory, so instead of forking a big process, a small one is forked. Python 2.6 is now required.
Release Notes: The itools.vfs has been rewritten to use Gio. The Web server main loop is now based on the GLib. Extraction of text from office files (OpenOffice, MS Office, etc.) is much faster, and so is indexing with Xapian. The database layer (itools.handlers) has been improved with new features: read-only mode and versioning (with Git).
Release Notes: This release brings back the Windows installers. There are also some minor improvements to itools.pdf (PML) and itools.odf. A few bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The 'frozendict' class has been added and the 'freeze' function has been finished. The 'is_datatype' function has been deprecated. There are various fixes, including #483 and #484.
Release Notes: This release includes the new itools.xapian package, a wrapper around the Xapian index and search engine (this replaces the itools.catalog package). Partial support for the Segmentation Rules eXchange and RelaxNG formats is provided by the new itools.srx and itools.relaxng packages. The new PDF Markup Language (PML), as well as major changes to the Web framework (itools.web) and to the XML parser, are some other important new features.
Release Notes: The isetup-quality.py script has gotten two new options: --show-lines prints the line numbers of the offensive code, and --graph produces some graphs with quality information over time. The required version of the Glib has been dropped from 2.14 to 2.12. Several bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release includes a new proof-of-concept package, itools.abnf, which implements RFC 4234 (Augmented BNF). There has also been lots of work on the XML parser. Most notably, it now accepts an open file as the input parameter. There is a new dependency: itools now requires the GLib library.
Release Notes: The isetup-doc.py script has been removed. epydoc is now used to generate the API reference. The itools.http and itools.web packages have seen important fixes, like better support for cookies and better handling of bad requests. The itools.xml and itools.html packages now correctly raise an exception when a close tag is missing at the end of the file.
Release Notes: This is mostly a minor bugfix release. The only improvement is the new event log for handler databases (itools.handlers).
