API changes

  • Use backports.csv module on Python 2 to align the behavior with Python 3 and drop many hacks.

  • Removed deprecated getoutput methods deprecated in version 2.0.0.

  • Added new deprecations:

    • Deprecated setsource, getsource, gettarget and settarget methods in favor of source and target properties for all storage classes, except LISAunit and its subclasses since for those these methods do actually accept additional arguments so can’t just be always replaced by some property.

    • xliffunit: Deprecated get_rich_source in favor of rich_source property

  • Defined for all unit classes the rich_source and rich_target properties without using methods. Since the old methods were private they were directly removed without deprecating them.
