Reviews for this release

found two bugs: 1. Error was unhandled by user code in from _elementtree import * 2. In debug mode trying to copy a value of a variable that holds a large amount of raw text, it doesn't copy the whole string. This caused me serious issues in debugging. I had to run the code in Pycharm to be able to copy the content of that variable.
