Hi there,

I'm happy to announce (a last) the first release of lxml, new Python 
bindings for libxml2 and libxslt that aim to expose the functionality of 
the libraries in a more "Pythonic way". This means supporting 
Python-style APIs for the manipulation of XML (in particular ElementTree 
to manipulate libxml2's trees), and support for Python's garbage 

These bindings are completely independent from the Python bindings that 
ship with libxml2 and libxslt already. The existing bindings are at the 
moment far more complete and well-tested than lxml, so it depends on 
your specific needs whether you want to decide to use lxml instead. I do 
believe using lxml will make using libxml2/libxslt from python more easy 
and less bugprone than has been the case with the libxml2-python and 
libxslt-python bindings.

  Thanks -a bit late- for doing this, it is probably challenging :-)
I added pointers from to lxml, 

  good luck !
