15=======

[279]17* Fixed a dot '.' character being recognized as !!float.
18* Fixed exceptions produced by LibYAML bindings.
19* 'yaml.load()' raises an exception if the input stream contains
20  more than one YAML document.
21* Use setuptools for setup.py.  If you want to build optional LibYAML
22  bindings, run 'python setup.py --with-libyaml install'.  Building
23  LibYAML bindings no longer requires PyRex installed.
24* Windows binary packages are built against the LibYAML stable branch.

48About PyYAML
49============
50
[160]51YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
52interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
53emitter for Python.
54
55PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
56support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
57supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
58to represent an arbitrary Python object.
59
60PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
61configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
