    55Changes in 3.0 (released 01/07/2008) 
    66------------------------------------ 
     7 
     8*   Namespaces have been greatly simplified. There are no namespace modules any 
     9    longer. An element class can be assigned a namespace by setting the ``xmlns`` 
     10    class attribute to the namespace name. Global attributes can be assigned a 
     11    namespace by setting the ``xmlns`` attribute on the attribute class itself 
     12    (*not* on the :class:`Attrs` class). The classes :class:`Prefixes` and 
     13    :class:`NSPool` are gone too. Instead a new class :class:`Pool` is used to 
     14    specify which classes should be used for parsing. 
     15 
     16*   Dependency on PyXML_ has finally been dropped. XIST now uses its own XML 
     17    parsing API. Two parsers are available: One based on expat_ and one based on 
     18    a custom version of sgmlop_.
