This is the new version 1.8 of PyMuPDF (formerly python-fitz), a Python binding which supports MuPDF 1.8 - "a lightweight PDF and XPS viewer".
MuPDF can access files in PDF, XPS, OpenXPS and EPUB (e-book) formats, and it is known for its top performance and high rendering quality.
With PyMuPDF you therefore can also access files with extensions

Normally it should be as easy as running
python setup.py install once MuPDF is in place (i.e. has been generated).
