Powerful and Pythonic XML processing library combining libxml2/libxslt with the ElementTree API.
lxml is a Pythonic, mature binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries. It provides safe and convenient access to these libraries using the ElementTree API.
It extends the ElementTree API significantly to offer support for XPath, RelaxNG, XML Schema, XSLT, C14N and much more.
In case you want to use the current in-development version of lxml, you can get it from the subversion repository at http://codespeak.net/svn/lxml/trunk . Running easy_install lxml==dev will install it from http://codespeak.net/svn/lxml/trunk#egg=lxml-dev
After an official release of a new stable series, current bug fixes become available at http://codespeak.net/svn/lxml/branch/lxml-2.1 . Running easy_install lxml==2.1bugfix will install this version from http://codespeak.net/svn/lxml/branch/lxml-2.1#egg=lxml-2.1bugfix
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.
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.
