Bleach is very nearly ready for a 1.0!
After I announced Bleach 1.0rc1, a couple of important issues were found. Those have now been fixed. (Thanks, guys!) One of these was backported to 0.5, and I uploaded 0.5.1 to PyPI yesterday.
If you use Bleach, please try out the new version. You can get it from Github and install with pip.
Bleach 1.0 drops the Bleach class. 0.5.x is intended as a stepping stone that will let you start using the new API.
Bleach 1.0 doesn’t have much in the way of new features, instead focusing on clean up, improving test coverage and security, and being ready to call it a 1.0. It does have the following changes over 0.5:
linkify()to ignore URLs in
- Drops support for
nofollow_relative. I still think that’s a good option but it needs work.
So please, check out Bleach. I’d love feedback on the new direction. Feel free to comment or open issues.
