New Python XML goodies

Juergen Hermann has wrapped Xerces and Xalan for Python; Alexandre Fayolle has released version 1.3.4 of XmlTools, UI widgets for XML.

Hermann's PIRXX is a Python interface to the Apache Xerces C++ XML parser and the Xalan C++ XSLT processor. Its goal is to wrap the Apache tools in a similar interface to the rest of the Python XML parsers and XSLT engines, so they can be plugged into Python XML-based applications. The first public release of PIRXX is version 1.1, and is available in binary and source forms for Linux and Windows.

XmlTools comprises two pyGTK widgets, XmlTree and XmlEditor, used for displaying and editing XML documents respectively. The tools support Python 2.0 and Unicode. The latest release, 1.3.4, fixes a severe bug on the Windows platform.
