Announcing PyYAML-5.2

A new release of PyYAML is now available:

This fixes some incompatibilities introduced in version 5.1 and also removes
another possibility of loading arbitrary code.


* Repair incompatibilities introduced with 5.1. The default Loader was changed,
   but several methods like add_constructor still used the old default

   https://github.com/yaml/pyyaml/pull/305 -- Change default loader for add_implicit_resolver, add_path_resolver
* Make FullLoader safer by removing python/object/apply from the default FullLoader

About PyYAML

YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
interaction with scripting languages. PyYAML is a YAML parser and emitter for

PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle support,
capable extension API, and sensible error messages. PyYAML supports standard
YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow to represent an
arbitrary Python object.

PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex configuration
files to object serialization and persistence.
