Hey all! I just got the following from the XML-SIG (special interest group): * The current PyDOM code will be dropped and replaced with 4DOM. The precise details of how this will work are still to be resolved; will the 4DOM code move into xml.dom, or will xml.dom import from xml.Ft.dom and provide some wrappers? This came, crazily enough, just as I was looking at the latest 4DOM release. 4DOM is a python Document Object Model implementation for messing around with XML files and is distributed by 4Thought. The code and install instructions are located at http://fourthought.com/4Suite/4DOM/. I think I'm just going to go ahead and switch the DOM code in loci over to use the 4DOM stuff so I can learn how to use it, unless anyone seriously objects to this. I doubt if it will be a big deal to make the necessary changes necessary to fix things once 4DOM moves into the PyXML package--it sounds like there will just be a few import changes. BTW, although I know nothing about licensing, I don't think there should be any problems with the 4DOM license. The whole thing is pasted in below for anyone who cares to look. That's all the news that's fit to print on the xml front... Brad 4DOM License/Copyright (this makes it look like my e-mail is copyrighted by FourThought!)
