Uche Ogbuji of Fourthought has announced a new version of 4Suite, a library of Python classes for XML programming, adding XLink support.

Joining the 4Suite family of XPath, XSLT, RDF, DOM and XPointer support, 4XLink is a processor to expand XLink attributes. Also new in this release is "DbDom," an experimental DOM implementation which sits on top of 4Suite's object database support classes.

Other changes to 4Suite include the following fixes:

  • Fixes and improvements in 4RDF to serialization, the back end and the API
  • Standardized reader interfaces across DOM implementations
  • Tested with Python 2.0
  • Standardized reader interfaces across DOM implementations

4Suite now has a new home on the web, at, and is available as binary for Windows and Linux, as well as in source form. The license has also changed, and is now Apache-style.
