I've finally found the time to release lxml. So here then is lxml, release 0.5!
The very brief lxml FAQ
Q: What is lxml?
A: It's a Pythonic wrapping for libxml2 and libxslt
Q: What does that do?
A: It does XML, parsing it, writing it, manipulating it, searching in it (XPath), transforming it (XSLT), and validating it (Relax NG), plus more.
Q: But doesn't libxml2 already have a Python wrapper?
A: Yeah, but it's not pythonic at all. It's huge and difficult to comprehend, it's low level, you can get segfaults and you have to do your own memory management.
Q: Why isn't this in the Python package index?
A: I forgot my password, and resetting my password doesn't appear to work correctly. The error already turned out to be reported in the PyPI issue tracker on sourceforge.
