listparser v0.12 - "Safety net"

Posted 3 January 2010 in listparser

I'm pleased to announce that listparser v0.12 is now available for download!

In this release I ironed out several crasher bugs on Jython 2.5.1 and Python 3.0. I additionally realized that there was a bug in the HTTP User-Agent code and fixed that (developers weren't able to override the global USER_AGENT variable). There were other minor changes, but the crasher and behavioral bugs are the big news for this release.

listparser is a Python library that parses subscription lists (also called reading lists) and returns all of the feeds, subscription lists, and "opportunity" URLs that it finds. It supports OPML, RDF+FOAF, and the iGoogle exported settings format.
