20Changes
21=======
22
23* Python 3 support (Thank to Erick Tryzelaar).
24* Use Cython instead of Pyrex to build LibYAML bindings.  Note
25  that the source package is distributed with a pre-generated
26  '_yaml.c' file so you don't need Cython installed to build
27  LibYAML bindings.
28* Refactored support for unicode and byte input/output streams.

53About PyYAML
54============
55
56YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
57interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
58emitter for Python.
59
60PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
61support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
62supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
63to represent an arbitrary Python object.
64
65PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
66configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
