Subject: [ANN] PyYAML-3.10: YAML parser and emitter for Python
Announcing PyYAML-3.10
A new bug fix release of PyYAML is now available:
* Do not try to build LibYAML bindings on platforms other than CPython;
this fixed installation under Jython (Thank to olt(at)bogosoft(dot)com).
* Clear cyclic references in the parser and the emitter
(Thank to kristjan(at)ccpgames(dot)com).
* LibYAML bindings are rebuilt with the latest version of Cython.
* Dropped support for Python 2.3 and 2.4; currently supported versions
are 2.5 to 3.2.

About PyYAML
YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
interaction with scripting languages. PyYAML is a YAML parser and
emitter for Python.
PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages. PyYAML
supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
to represent an arbitrary Python object.
PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
