Gpxpy version 0.8.0

Gpxpy is an open source python library for parsing and manipulating GPX files. It is one of the core parts of the TrackProfiler web site, and one of the open sourced parts of it. In the last few months a lot of work is done. Two new important features:

  • gpxpy can now use lxml (if available) to parse GPX files (contribution from Isaev Igor)
  • Python 3 support (contribution from Robert Smallshire)

...and many more small bug fixes and unit tests to make it faster and more stable.

It is licensed under Apache 2.0 and there should be no problems using it even with your own closed-source commercial apps.

PS. The original trackprofiler utility app and the library used to show analytics graphs (cartesius) are also open source.
