I'm pleased to announce the 0.9.0 release of pygccxml.

What is pygccxml?

The purpose of pygccxml is to read GCC-XML generated file and provide a simple
framework to navigate C++ declarations, using Python classes.

Where is pygccxml?

What's new?


Performance was improved. pygccxml is now 30-50% faster. The improvement was
achieved by using "cElementTree" package, "iterparse" functionality, instead of
standard XML SAX API.

Small features

* Class calldef_t has new property - "does_throw". It describes whether the
  function throws any exception or not.

* "is_base_and_derived" function arguments were changed. The second
argument could be
   a tuple, which contains classes. The function returns ``True`` if
at least one
   class derives from the base one.

Bug fixes

* C++ does not define implicit conversion between an integral type and
  "declarations.is_convertible" type traits was fixed.

* Small bug was fixed in functionality that corrects GCC-XML reported function
  default arguments. Reference to "enum" declaration extracted properly.
