14Changes
15=======
16
[326]17* The emitter learned to use an optional indentation indicator
18  for block scalar; thus scalars with leading whitespaces
19  could now be represented in a literal or folded style.
20* The test suite is now included in the source distribution.
21  To run the tests, type 'python setup.py test'.
22* Refactored the test suite: dropped unittest in favor of
23  a custom test appliance.
24* Fixed the path resolver in the LibYAML-based dumper.
25* Forced an explicit document end indicator when there is
26  a possibility of parsing ambiguity.
27* More setup.py improvements: the package should be usable
28  when any combination of setuptools, Pyrex and LibYAML
29  is installed.
30* Windows binary packages are built against LibYAML-0.1.2.
31* Other minor fixes and improvements (Thank to Ingy dot Net
32  and Andrey Somov).

56About PyYAML
57============
58
[160]59YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
60interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
61emitter for Python.
62
63PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
64support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
65supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
66to represent an arbitrary Python object.
67
68PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
69configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
