FourThought LLC (http://FourThought.com) announces the release of

                             4DOM 0.8.0
                      -----------------------
                  An implementation of the W3C's
                  Document Object Model in Python

4DOM is a close implementation of the DOM recommendation, including
DOM Core level 1, DOM HTML level 1, Node Iterator and Node Filter from
DOM Level 2, and a few utility and helper components.  4DOM can work
in a CORBA* enviroment, or in a purely local set-up.

4DOM is designed to allow developers rapidly design applications
that read, write or manipulate HTML and XML.

* Explicit garbage-collection method
* Better-tested Fnorb and Ilu support
* Many bug-fixes
