lxml 2.0 released

Hi everyone,

I'm very happy to announce the official release of lxml 2.0!

** What is lxml?

In short: lxml is the most feature-rich and easy-to-use library for working
with XML and HTML in the Python language.

lxml is a Pythonic binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries. It is unique
in that it combines the speed and feature completeness of these libraries with
the simplicity of a native Python API.

** Install lxml 2.0 with

$ easy_install lxml==2.0

** The complete changelog is here:

This release marks the end of a development effort of more than 6 months,
starting with the release of the last stable series lxml 1.3. The major
differences are explained on this page:

lxml 2.0 is not a revolution, it is a gradual move towards a cleaner API with
more things working together as expected. But it nevertheless comes with a lot
of new tools and features, that makes your XML life easier - and even more
your HTML life. There are also a couple of minor things that were deprecated,
which will be removed for lxml 2.1. See the above link for details.

The new release has already adopted a lot of changes from the upcoming
ElementTree 1.3 library, and implements a much broader set of compatible
features, such as the TreeBuilder interface for parser targets.

Have fun,
