Beautiful Soup 4.1.2: Another small release. The big new feature is the ability to use the class_ keyword argument to search by CSS class. The big bug fix has to do with XML that uses namespaced attribute names. And the big performance improvement comes from cchardet, a Python binding to Mozilla's charset detector that's much faster (but gives slightly different results) than the pure-Python chardet. If you have cchardet installed, UnicodeDammit will use it in preference to chardet.
