HappyDoc is a tool for extracting documentation from Python source code. It differs from other such applications by the fact that it uses the parse tree for a module to derive the information used in its output instead of importing the module directly. This allows the user to generate documentation for modules which need special context to be imported.

Release Notes: A bug was fixed where output was written to the wrong place when the -d option was used. The PluginLoader no longer requires a '.py' extension on plugins, allowing plugins not written in Python.
Release Notes: Much of the code base has been rearranged to protect the namespace for HappyDoc code (as well as other Python libraries). Package descriptions can now be extracted from the __init__.py module docstring instead of always having to be in a README file. A problem with the HTMLTable formatter that caused pages to look odd in many browsers was fixed.
Release Notes: A variety of modifications were implemented to support Python 2.0 syntax updates. A plugin system was added for docstring converters to allow module authors to write docs using different markup styles. External files are now recognized by their extension. The global default setting for docstrings can be passed on the command line or a file-specific setting can be embedded in the input file. The default markup syntax was updated to StructuredTextNG, replacing the original StructuredText. A system to allow file-specific parser control variables to be embedded in the input source files was implemented.
Release Notes: This is the initial release announcement on freshmeat. Version 0.7.1 is still in development, but should be usable. It has not been assigned a 1.x version number because there are core features left to be implemented.
