pyannodex 0.7.2 Release
pyannodex is a set of Python bindings for the libannodex library, which
provides a simple way to read and write Annodex media using Python.
Annodex is an open standards based technology that extends the World
Wide Web's hyperlinking, searching, and compositing infrastructure to
time-continuous data, enabling video surfing, searching for clips of
audio and video files using ordinary Web search engines, and
on-the-fly composition of a video on a Web server from previously
annodexed clips. For more information on Annodex, see

This release fixes bugs, binds more of the 0.7 libannodex and adds anxinfo.py.
The pyannodex source distribution comprises the python binding for libannodex,
and command-line tools anxenc.py, anxrip.py, and anxinfo.py.
pyannodex provides the following features:
* A low-level annodex module that directly wraps the C API.
* A set of high-level object-oriented bindings.
pyannodex is currently largely undocumented, however documentation of the
libannodex API can be read online at:
pyannodex contains python versions of various command-line tools,
which are useful for creating and inspecting Annodex media:
* anxenc.py: Encapsulate annotations and data into annodexed media.
* anxrip.py: Extract annotations and data tracks from annodexed media.
* anxinfo.py: Display information about annodexed media contents.
