1.6.7 (February 20, 2017)

Updated testing matrix. Now certified under Python 3.6 and latest versions of PyPy and PyPy3.

1.6.6 (September 16, 2015)

Updated testing for Python 3.5.0 final and PyPy 2.6.1 (based on CPython 2.7.10).

1.6.5 (September 8, 2015)

Minor fix to Markdown module. Turns out HTML stops at h6, not h7. Oops!

1.6.4 (September 7, 2015)

Quoters can now take a variable number of arguments. A sep kwarg determins how multiple pieces are combined. Defaults to empty string, so rank concatenation. Full rationalization re Joiner awaits another day.

Minor testing cleanups.

1.6.3 (September 7, 2015)

Handful of minor cleanups.

All previously skipped tests are now re-enabled and passing.

Argument handling of Quoter creation is now hardened. If a prefix or suffix is explicitly set but not the other, the unset one defaults to an empty string, not to the other one that is set.

The pair keyword for compact setting of balanced quote prefix/suffix pairs is returned to service (in earlier incarndations, this was the chars kwarg).

Extended documentation. Added API Reference.

1.6.0 (September 7, 2015)

Major redesign of the named styles facility. Refactored style management out of Quoter and its subclasses and into separate StyleSet class. Much cleaner and more reliable.

The style= kwarg to Quoter classes, however, goes away. It was “a bridge too far,” complicating everything and not adding real value. Its function is now found in StyleSet._define().

While this is largely an “infrastructure” rather than functional release, there were some minor functional improvements: Markdown quoting extended with hr and h1 through h7 header methods. XML quoting now has cdata and pcdata methods. Both of these are part of an incremental march toward functional completeness in their respective quoting realms.

Withdrew branch coverage testing metric. While a good idea in theory, current tools do not provide sufficient actionable intelligence to directly identify source of branch misses.

1.5.6 (August 22, 2015)

Extended Markdown feature with header function h

1.5.5 (August 24, 2015)

Start of a Markdown capability. It is at a experimental, proof of concept, or demonstration stage rather than production-use stage at present–much as HTML and XML quoting functions were a few releases back. The initial goal is to stretch the quoter use- case and prove/harden its extension mechanisms. Even at its inaugural stage, it is doing just that.

1.5.3 (August 23, 2015)

Reorg of XML and HTML code into own module. Parallel reorg of tests. All tests passing.

1.5.2 (August 23, 2015)

Starts automatic collection of test branch coverage. Begins with 99% coverage.

1.5.0 (August 20, 2015)

Enables cloning and specialization of all Quoter subclasses, including xml and html objects docs previously warned were non-functional. Refactors majority of Joiner functionality as a subclass of Quoter, with all the rights and privileges thereunto appertaining.

Extends tests.

1.4.4 (August 20, 2015)

Added “naked” invocations of primary quoter front-ends, such as html("joe", ""). This allows quoters to take on primary information (such as the tag name) during each call. This was long planned for the API, but had been sidelined due to now- quashed complexity.

1.4.3 (August 20, 2015)

Added but synonym for clone to have simpler, clearer invocations.

1.4.2 (August 20, 2015)

Docs were getting long. Truncated README.rst and converted majority to Sphinx docs to be hosted on readthedocs.

1.4.1 (August 20, 2015)

Documentation fix.

1.4.0 (August 20, 2015)

Major rewrite of complex argument handling for XMLQuoter (and HTMLQuoter subclass). Should be much more robust and extensible. Refactored some functions into

Adds direct attribute setting [key=value] to the CSS selector specification language.

Improved testing. Added new tests of sub-cases of parsing the arguments. Updated strategy to have quicker basic tests with sudo tox, but easy full coverage analysis with sudo tox -c toxcov.ini. Advances test line coverage to 100%.

1.3.6 (August 17, 2015)

Updated testing strategy with integrated multi-version coverage testing. Achieved 98%.

1.3.5 (August 14, 2015)

Fixed RST problem in docs

1.3.4 (August 14, 2015)

Added Travis CI badge and note about 2.6 release to docs

1.3.3 (August 11, 2015)

Some code reorganization and updating of common string routines.

1.3.2 (August 11, 2015)

Initiated external CI with Travis. Dropped Python 2.6 from official support given issues getting it running on Travis (though it actually does work).

1.3.0 (August 11, 2015)

First release of integrated sequence joining. join, word_join, and_join, or_join, joinlines, and items are functional and tested, but still less mature than the rest of the codebase.

1.2.0 (August 11, 2015)

Institutes full named styles within each quoting class. Tests and docs tweaked. Embedded nulltype module withdrawn in favor of full nulltype imported by options.

1.1.4 (August 3, 2015)

Experimental switch to YAML format for change log. Some setup, testing, and config updates.

1.1.3 (August 3, 2015)

Cloning and changing of Quoter instances (though not yet HTMLQuoter or XMLQuoter instances) is now operational.

1.1.0 (August 3, 2015)

Cleans up HTML quoting, esp. re void / self-closing elements. Adds new double-backtick functions. Changed to Apache License 2.0. Updates docs and testing matrix.

1.0.3 (November 1, 2013)

HTML, XML, and lambda quoters now use class-relative styles dictionaries, as opposed to piggybacking the standard Quoter styles dictionary.

Improved docs and tests.

Added lambdaq front-end parallel to quote, html, and xml.

1.0.2 (October 31, 2013)

Some internal cleanups to improve code reuse among classes. Bumped from Alpha to Beta status.

1.0.1 (October 31, 2013)

A new alternate API consisting of attribute names off of a default quoting object (e.g. quote.single as a specialization of quote) has been instituted. This is mostly, but not perfectly, a superset of the previous use of a quote() function.

The naming infrastructure has been beefed up, with multiple names (aliases) possible for all named objects.

A new XMLQuoter is inserted as a superclass of HTMLQuoter`. It has ``HTMLQuoter‘s ability to parse CSS style id and class name definitions (e.g. '#first.big.special'), as well as namespace support (new ns attribute).

XML and HTML quoters for individual tags are automagically generated upon first use. E.g. html.b('this') creates an HTMLQuoter(tag='b', name='b') quoter that is cached as html.b for subsequent uses.

Updated versioning strategy to comply with PEP 386

Various other structural and packaging cleanups. E.g. moved into proper Python package; given introspectable version number; removed old verno auto-update of version number; this proper change long instituted; etc.

0.308 (October 30, 2012)

Last version before PEP 386 versioning switch. Upgrade away from these old versions if for no other reason than improving the auto- install logic.
