Changes in version 2.7.xΒΆ

The 2.7 series was a brief but necessary transition towards some of the core ideas in version 3.0.

Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.6 was released on January 16, 2004.

  • fixed bug with StringIO importing

Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.5 was released on January 15, 2004.

Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.3 was released on January 14, 2004.

  • reverted all changes made in 2.7.2

Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.2 was released on January 13, 2004.

  • “Version 2.7.2 of my feed parser, released today, will by default refuse to parse this feed. It does a first-pass check for wellformedness, and when that fails it sets the ‘bozo’ bit in the result to 1 and immediately terminates. You can revert to the previous behavior by passing disableWellFormedCheck=1, but it will print arrogant warning messages to stderr to the effect that anyone who can’t create a well-formed XML feed is a bozo and an incompetent fool.” source

Ultra-liberal Feed Parser 2.7.1 was released on January 9, 2004.

  • fixed bug handling &quot; and &apos;
  • fixed memory leak not closing url opener (JohnD)

  • really added support for trackback and pingback namespaces, as opposed to 2.6 when I said I did but didn’t really
  • sanitize HTML markup within some elements
  • added mxTidy support (if installed) to tidy HTML markup within some elements
  • fixed indentation bug in _parse_date (FazalM)

  • date is duplicated in modified and vice-versa
  • date_parsed is duplicated in modified_parsed and vice-versa
