 * Create a dictionary: Windows codepage => charset name (CODEPAGE_CHARSET)
 * ASN.1: support boolean and enum types; fix bit string parser
 * MKV: use textHandler()
 * AVI: create index parser, use file size header to detect padding at the end
 * ISO9660: strip nul bytes in application name
 * JPEG: add ICC profile chunk name
 * PNG: fix transparency parser (tRNS)
 * BPLIST: support empty value for markers 4, 5 and 6
 * Microsoft Office summary: support more codepages (CP874, Windows 1250..1257)
 * tcpdump: support ICMPv6 and IPv6
 * Java: add bytecode parser, support JDK 1.6
 * Python: parse lnotab content, fill a string table for the references
 * MPEG Video: parse much more chunks
 * MOV: Parse file type header, create the right MIME type

hachoir-parser 1.2.1 (2008-10-16)

 * Improve OLE2 and MS Office parsers:
   - support small blocks
   - fix the charset of the summary properties
   - summary property integers are unsigned
   - use TimedeltaWin64 for the TotalEditingTime field
   - create minimum Word document parser
 * Python parser: support magic numbers of Python 3000
   with the keyword only arguments
 * Create Apple/NeXT Binary Property List (BPLIST) parser
 * MPEG audio: reject file with no valid frame nor ID3 header
 * Skip subfiles in JPEG files
 * Create Apple/NeXT Binary Property List (BPLIST) parser by Robert Xiao

hachoir-parser 1.2 (2008-09-03)

 * Create FLAC parser, written by Esteban Loiseau
 * Create Action Script parser used in Flash parser,
   written by Sebastien Ponce
 * Create Gnome Keyring parser: able to parse the stored passwords using
   Python Crypto if the main password is written in the code :-)
 * GIF: support text extension field; parse image content
   (LZW compressed data)
 * Fix charset of IPTC string (guess it, it's not always ISO-8859-1)
 * TIFF: Sebastien Ponce improved the parser: parse image data, add many
   tags, etc.
 * MS Office: guess the charset for summary strings since it could be
   ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8

hachoir-parser 1.1 (2008-04-01)

Main changes: add "EFI Platform Initialization Firmware
Volume" (PIFV) and "Microsoft Windows Help" (HLP) parsers. Details:

   - create RationalInt32 and RationalUInt32
   - fix for empty value
   - add GPS tags

 * JPEG:

   - support Ducky (APP12) chunk
   - support Comment chunk
   - improve validate(): make sure that first 3 chunk types are known

 * RPM: use bzip2 or gzip handler to decompress content
 * S3M: fix some parser bugs
 * OLE2: reject negative block index (or special block index)
 * ip2name(): catch KeybordInterrupt and don't resolve next addresses
 * ELF: support big endian
 * PE: createContentSize() works on PE program, improve resource section
 * AMF: stop mixed array parser on empty key
