14Changes
15=======
16
17* setup.py checks whether LibYAML is installed and if so, builds
18  and installs LibYAML bindings.  To force or disable installation
19  of LibYAML bindings, use '--with-libyaml' or '--without-libyaml'
20  respectively.
21* Building LibYAML bindings no longer requires Pyrex installed.
22* 'yaml.load()' raises an exception if the input stream contains
23  more than one YAML document.
24* Fixed exceptions produced by LibYAML bindings.
25* Fixed a dot '.' character being recognized as !!float.
26* Fixed Python 2.3 compatibility issue in constructing !!timestamp values.
27* Windows binary packages are built against the LibYAML stable branch.
28* Added attributes 'yaml.__version__' and  'yaml.__with_libyaml__'.

52About PyYAML
53============
54
55YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
56interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
57emitter for Python.
58
59PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
60support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
61supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
62to represent an arbitrary Python object.
63
64PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
65configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
