[ANN] PyYAML-3.06: YAML parser and emitter for Python

P: n/a
========================
Announcing PyYAML-3.06
========================

A new bug fix release of PyYAML is now available:

http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML
Changes
=======

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

About PyYAML
============

YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
interaction with scripting languages. PyYAML is a YAML parser and
emitter for Python.

PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages. PyYAML
supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
to represent an arbitrary Python object.

PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
Example
