  • Root MergeableDocumentElements’ __merge_entities__() methods are not ignored anymore. Respnosibilty to merge two documents is now moved from Session.merge() method to MergeableDocumentElement.__merge_entities__() method.
  • crawl() now return a set of CrawlResult objects instead of tuples.
  • feeds parameter of crawl() function was renamed to feed_urls.
  • Added feed_uri parameter and corresponding feed_uri attribute to CrawlError exception.
  • Timeout option was added to crawler.
    • Added optional timeout parameter to crawl().
    • Added optional timeout parameter to get_feed().
    • Added DEFAULT_TIMEOUT constant which is 10 seconds.
  • Added LinkList.favicon property. [issue #49]
  • Link.relation attribute which had been optional now becomes required
  • AutoDiscovery.find_feed_url() method (that returned feed links) was gone. Instead AutoDiscovery.find() method (that returns a pair of feed links and favicon links) was introduced. [issue #49]
  • Subscription.icon_uri attribute was introduced. [issue #49]
  • Added an optional icon_uri parameter to SubscriptionSet.subscribe() method. [issue #49]
  • Added normalize_xml_encoding() function to workaround xml.etree.ElementTree module’s encoding detection bug. [issue #41]
  • Added guess_tzinfo_by_locale() function. [issue #41]
  • Added microseconds option to Rfc822 codec.
  • Fixed incorrect merge of subscription/category deletion.
  • Fixed several rss2 parser bugs.
    • Now the parser accepts several malformed <pubDate> and <lastBuildDate> elements.
    • It become to guess the time zone according to its <language> and the ccTLD (if applicable) when the date time doesn’t give any explicit time zone (which is also malformed). [issue #41]
    • It had ignored <category> elements other than the last one, now it become to accept as many as there are.
    • It had ignored <comments> links at all, now these become to be parsed to Link objects with relation='discussion'.
    • Some RSS 2 feeds put a URI into <generator>, so the parser now treat it as uri rather than value for such situation.
    • <enclosure> links had been parsed as Link object without relation attribute, but it becomes to properly set the attribute to 'enclosure'.
    • Mixed <link> elements with Atom namespace also becomes to be parsed well.
  • Fixed several atom parser bugs.
    • Now it accepts obsolete PURL Atom namespace.
    • Since some broken Atom feeds (e.g. Naver Blog) provide date time as RFC 822 format which is incorrect according to RFC 4287 (section 3.3), the parser becomes to accept RFC 822 format as well.
    • Some broken Atom feeds (e.g. Naver Blog) use <modified> which is not standard instead of <updated> which is standard, so the parser now treats <modified> equivalent to <updated>.
    • <content> and <summary> can has text/plain and text/html in addition to text and html.
    • <author>/<contributor> becomes ignored if it hasn’t any of <name>, <uri>, or <email>.
    • Fixed a parser bug that hadn’t interpret omission of link[rel] attribute as 'alternate'.
  • Fixed the parser to work well even if there’s any file separator characters (FS, '\x1c').

Version 0.1.2

Released on January 19, 2014.

  • XML elements in data files are written in canonical order. For example, <title> element of the feed was at the back before, but now is in front.
  • write() becomes to store length hints of children that is multiple, and read() becomes aware of the hints. When hints are read len() for the ElementList is O(1).
  • Fixed a bug that autodiscovery raises AttributeError when the given HTML contains <link> to both application/atom+xml and application/rss+xml. [issue #40]
  • Fill <title> to <description> if there’s no <title> (rss2).
